Conditions of Dialogue By Dr. Poorna K. Adhikary

King Gyanendra, after firing Deuwa and appointing Chand as premier seems to have decided to walk alone in the present political scenario in Nepal. The political parties having not collaborated with the King, although seem sidelined for the time being, still represent a force that believes in the multi-party constitutional monarchial democracy. The Maoist insurgency, which has created conditions for the constitutional stalemate has emerged as a force that is challenging both. Thus the tri-polar conflict, which has emerged in Nepal, now has attracted the world attention. Everyone is realizing the need for a dialogue to come out of this conflict, which has to be managed by a competent facilitator.

Jamling Norgay, son of Tensing Norgay, the first Sherpa to climb Everest with Sir Edmond Hillary, came to visit us this afternoon. His tent is just beyond Seth's in National Geographic's camp. Jamling is one of the stars of the National Geographic movie they are making. He is a VERY nice man. I met him two years ago when he came to speak at State Theater in Ann Arbor, Michigan. At that time I was just starting my company. I never could have dreamed I'd be HERE at base camp with HIM this year -- AND with an Of Global Interest Everest climber! Sean is up there, climbing Mt. Everest right now!
