You can’t improve what is inherently evil.

Taking cue from archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, who said on the lines of “You cannot improve what is inherently evil.”

Let us add:

  • You can’t improve politicians who lose elections yet win power.
  • You can’t improve a political system that thrives on status quo and fear over you.
  • You can’t improve groups that fight on the lines of caste and color of their skins or through hate and fear.
  • You can’t improve negative or violent cultures. You can only replace them.
  • You can’t improve old resigned minds.
  • You can’t improve others without first improving yourself.


  • You can improve yourself. Lead the way!
  • You can improve the way we hold our systems accountable! Demand! Act! Lead!
  • You can improve people’s common sense to elect better leaders! Provoke them!
  • You can improve the way traffic is run or change the environment by taking an active stand!
  • You can create a positive culture around you. Take an initiative !
  • You can improve youthful minds. Shape them, mentor them and unleash them!

what if, a million job creation was the election mantra of a new common sense party in Nepal

A couple of What ifs:

  • a) What if some dynamic young leaders of different political parties decided to come together and start fresh and make a new party (the way kadima was formed in Israel).
  • b) What if they then, brought all the young social entrepreneurs and economic advisors into their core political team and make “a  million man job creation” their primary election agenda
  • c) What if they turned to the Non resident Nepalis for funding their organization through their website and transparently post their party spendings.
  • d) What if this youth party decided on “green” and “economic development” as vehicles for change!
  • e) What if the new “youth” party pitched in to form a dream team of national planning commission to put a  successful entrepreneur, a young social entrepreneur, a globalization expert and an environmental social entrepreneur.
  • f) What if this party restricts its leadership’s age limit to 50 years and below.
  • g) What if it advocated chinese, english, hindi, entrepreneurship, mathematics and “effective communication skills” as a pre-requisite subjects for all schoolers upto high school.
  • What if….. (add yours)
