Republic Nepal - गणतन्त्र नेपाल -

Republic Nepal by Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka

As Nepal is now a republic state, what do you think? Nepal will be as developed as Switzerland as told by the Maoist in 10, 20, 40 years or we will fail?

Nepal is the oldest country in South Asia and also older than USA, but we still live in 13th century. So do you think Nepal will change?

I will be back to this post after 10 years and let you know about the progress, if this post [and me] will survive to 10 years than.

Republic Nepal as published in today’s Kantipur.

Last Kiss....

Last Kiss.... by Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka
Oh where, oh where, can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me.
She's gone to heaven so I've got to be good,
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.
We were out on a date in my daddy's car,
We hadn't driven very far.
There in the road straight ahead,
A car was stalled, the engine was dead.
I couldn't stop, so I swerved to the right,
I'll never forget the sound that night.
The screaming tires, the busting glass,
The painful scream that I heard last.
Chorus
When I woke up, the rain was pouring down,
There were people standing all around.
Something warm flowing through my eyes,
But somehow I found my baby that night.
I lifted her head, she looked at me and said;
"Hold me darling just a little while."
I held her close I kissed her - our last kiss,
I found the love that I knew I had missed.
Well now she's gone even though I hold her tight,
I lost my love, my life that night.
Chorus

Last Kiss by* Pearl Jam
