How Powerful Is Nepal?

Posted by Anup Baral July 31, 2016 :
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India, who wooed Nepalis on his two visits last year, during which he promoted his "neighborhood first" diplomacy, is now an object of scorn. Some people have burned effigies of him, and a #BackoffIndia hashtag was recently trending on Twitter. While Nepal's allies, including China, welcomed the new Constitution, India merely "noted" it."

 Nepal is smack dab in the middle of two of the strongest nations in the world: China and India. So can Nepal hold its own being in the shadow of their power?

Two Nepalis were injured in a clash that erupted between youths from Nepal and India at the no-man’s land following a debate over construction of a dam by Indian authorities. Dev Narayan Yadav of Tilathi-4 and Roshan Jha of Tilathi-6 were injured after receiving stones hurled by the Indians. Among the injured, the condition of Yadav is said to be serious. It is learnt that Indian locals targeted Yadav as he had been protesting the dam constructed illegally by the Southern neighbor. The clash was ensued after local youths demolished a dam that was being constructed by India at the no-man’s land breaching international norms. Nepali youths damaged some 80 percent of the dam constructed by India.@myrepublica
