H.E. Yog Prasad Upadhyay's recent behaviour has sort of confused me. Who does an ambassador of a country represent? Is it the people and the elected Government of Nepal or the Congress Party of Nepal. If he represents our country he should atleast show some respect to the head of the Government of a democratically elected Government whether it be Girija or Marich Man et al.If he represents the Congress party and is interested in the internal politics of the party why should he still be the ambassador of Nepal and represent us and create a scene? Does he have the right to behave in such a manner and in the process embarass us Nepali's too? Maybe we could discuss this.

        One killed, another wounded in car accident with U.N. troops
        ------------------------------------------------------------

Source : UPI TYRE, Lebanon, October 26,

        A member of the Shiite Amal movement was killed and another was wounded when their motorcycle collided with a vehicle of the United Nations Interim Force in southern Lebanon, U.N. and Lebanese security sources said Tuesday.
        The accident occurred Monday night in the Jabal Al Botum village near the port city of Tyre, 46 miles (74 km) south of Beirut, the security sources said.
        A truck of the Nepalese battalion affiliated to the U.N. Interim Force in southern Lebanon hit two Amal followers on a motorcycle, the sources said. One was killed and the other was wounded.
        The incident provoked anger among the inhabitants who gathered outside the Nepalese post in the village and fired bursts of machineguns in sign of protest, the sources said.
        A Lebanese Army force and UNIFIL officers rushed to the scene to calm down the angry inhabitants and restore order, they said.
        A Nepalese officer blamed the accident on the speedy motorcycle which hit the U.N. vehicle on a routine patrol.
        In a separate incident, a Nepalese armored personnel carrier, carrying seven peacekeepers turned over on the Jabal Al Botum-Zibqin road. UNIFIL spokesman Timor Goksel said four Nepalese soldiers were wounded and denied any link with the previous incident.
        Nearly 93 similar incidents took place between the UNIFIL force and Lebanese inhabitants since the force deployement in 1978.
        A number of Lebanese have also been mistakenly killed by UNIFIL peacekeepers' fire at their checkpoints, prompting the U.N. force to pay compensation of between $10,000 and $15,000 to each of their families.
        The 5,200-member UNIFIL is made up of contingents from Nepal, Sweden, Norway, Fiji, Italy, Finland, Ghana and Ireland. It recently was joined by Polish and Russian peacekeepers.
        A total of 192 UNIFIL members have been killed and 250 wounded, most of them in repeated violence between guerrillas and Israeli forces.

        U.S. Air Force begins airlift of Nepalese troops for Somalia
        ------------------------------------------------------------

Kathmandu, Nepal, October 24,
        A U.S. Air Force C5 Galaxy aircraft began a weeklong airlift Sunday of Nepalese troops joining the U.N. peacekeepers for the first time in Somalia, American embassy and Nepalese army sources said.
        The airlift, beginning with 720 troops Sunday, will end Saturday, embassy sources said.
        The Nepalese troops under U.N. command will be completely self- sustained, bringing with them food rations for two months, an army source said.
        When the operation is complete 2,000 Nepalese troops will be serving as peacekeepers under the United Nations.
        Nepalese troops are also serving in Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan and the former Yugoslavia.

The Florida-Nepal Association (FNA) celebrated Dashain in Jacksonville, Florida on October 23. The celebration was attended by almost 100 people. Ambassador Yog Prasad Upadhyay and his wife were the Chief Guests at the ceremony.

The function started with "pooja" to Goddess Durga by Mrs. Yashoda Bahadur accompanied by incantations in Sanskrit by Mr. Ambassador and a rendition of Durga "vandana" by Saroj Shukla. The pooja was then followed by "tika" celebration. All the children received gifts from FNA as well. Then there were the obligatory speeches by some of the FNA Executive Members (Tirtha Mali-President, Babu Ram Adhikary- Vice President, Rajiv Lamsal- Secretary, and Rajendra Shrestha- Treasurer), His Excellency Mr. Upadhyay, and the President of Nepalese Association of Southeast America (NASA) Mr. Bishwa Raj Acharya. We all then enjoyed a cultural program in which there were musical instrument presentations by Ganga Bahadur and songs by Saroj Shukla, Min Bahadur Raychhetry, Rajendra Shrestha, Niresh and Ishan Shukla, Suwarna Man Malakar, and by a team of Guyanese Indian friends of the FNA, who captivated the audience by singing Nepali songs. The cultural program was followed by a big festive dinner, organized by the Nepali families in Jacksonville. Finally there were door-prizes and singing of "dyousi" by Min Bahadur as a reminder of the upcoming Tihar.

Excerpts:

The arrival of a World Bank team in Nepal earlier this year signalled the revival of interest in a project called Arun 3, and in December the Bank's board is to consider whether to go ahead with a $175m loan for the project. The campaign to stop the dam is in full swing. The main thrust of the campaign against Arun 3 is economic. Nepal now generates 278MW of electricity much of it from power plants from other rivers. Arun 3 would add another 210MW. Its needs will grow, but Arun's critics say that future requirements would be better served by smaller schemes, quicker and cheaper to build. The feasibility study alone for Arun 3 has cost $150m. If it is built, the electricity it produces is expected to cost $3,800 per kilowatt, compared with $1,600 for the electricity produced by the Khimti project that Nepal has built over the past decade.

Altogether, Arun 3 is expected to cost $764m. More than 60 % of the cost would be met by grants from other countries. The grant element undoubtedly attracts Nepal's government. And the possibility of rake-offs that comes with foreign money no doubt makes the project attractive to some civil servants. But if the country borrows $175m the WB is thinking of offering its total debt to the Bank will rise to $850m.

NATIONAL PEOPLE'S CONGRESS CALLS FOR TAX ON RICH AND FOREIGNERS
--------------------------------------------------------------- Forwarded by: A CND Reader Source: UPI, 10/25/93

BEIJING -- Lawmakers in China's rubber-stamp Parliament have called for higher income taxes on the growing number of foreign businessmen, saying they should be taxed on earnings in their own country as well, an official newspaper said Monday.

National People's Congress delegates, meeting at an ongoing session to deliberate a variety of new and revised laws, also urged the passage of a 30 percent income tax on China's growing class of nouveau riche in order to close a widening gap between rich and poor, the state-run China Daily said.

If passed, the new 30 percent tax would be similar to the United States' system, in which taxes are based on residents' worldwide earnings. At present, the top income tax bracket is 10 percent for foreigners, who are taxed only on income earned in China.

"Foreigners who have stayed in China for more than one year would be taxed on personal income both in China and in their home country," the newspaper said, adding that those residing for less than one year would face taxes on China income only.

The parliamentarians made the suggestions when deliberating the draft of the Law on Individual Income, which originally set the new tax rate at 20 percent for singers, actors and athletes, and between 3 and 35 percent for private businessmen.

But they revised the personal tax bracket upward an extra 10 percent, the article said, to "narrow the wide gap between personal incomes, a condition most Chinese citizens complain of and find unfair," it said.

Most Chinese, even the rich, currently pay little or no taxes to the government, which lacks the ability to enforce income tax collection. The current income tax rate for individuals is less than 10 percent and applied evenly to rich and poor.

The NPC's new tax bracket for foreigners will probably not be passed as it would be difficult to enforce and would dissuade foreigners from investing in China.

Former Minister of Finance Wang Bingqian, now NPC vice chairman, also came out against the higher tax on singers and athletes, saying it would discourage new talent.

GOVERNMENT CALLS FOR SCHOOLS TO BATTLE DALAI LAMA IDEAS
------------------------------------------------------- Forwarded by: Chengyan Liu Source: Reuter, 10/21/93

BEIJING -- A Chinese official newspaper has demanded that Tibet's schools do battle for students' hearts and minds against the Dalai Lama, the exiled religious leader and Nobel laureate officially branded a "splittist."

Calling the situation "extremely grim," a strongly worded article in the Tibet Daily of October 11, received in Beijing on Thursday, said patriotic education should be emphasised from primary school onward.

"In the past several years, the Dalai clique, with the support and instigation of Western anti-China forces, has echoed with the splittist elements within our borders," the article said.

"They have stepped up their activities to split the motherland, have infiltrated everywhere and have struggled with us for our youth."

China has refused to hold talks with the Dalai Lama, who won the Nobel peace prize in 1989, until he renounces his support for the independence movement.

The article said the battle had to be waged in the schools.

"With the struggle against the splittists extremely serious at present, strengthening anti-splittist education in the schools and developing a patriotic spirit is a major issue affecting the stability of Tibet, protecting the unity of the motherland, strengthening the unity of the nationalities and consolidating the borders."

The Dalai Lama fled to India in 1959 after a failed uprising against Beijing, which keeps a large number of troops in the Himalayan region it says has been part of China for centuries.

Tibet is periodically racked by anti-Chinese protests.

ASIA - POVERTY Source (API)

   BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) -- Even as Asian economies boom, the number of poor people in Asian cities continues to grow.
   According to a new U.N. report, one-quarter to three-quarters of the people in many of Asia's largest cities live in slums and squatter settlements.
   And that will be the life for 60 percent of the urban population in Asia by the turn of the century, unless major reforms are undertaken, the report says.
   "The incidence of urban absolute poverty actually increased between the late 1970s and late 1980s in nine out of 10 countries surveyed, even as overall wealth expanded," said a statement summarizing the report, received Sunday.
   The major study on Asia's cities, done by the U.N. Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, is to be presented at a meeting of Asian government ministers in Bangkok on Nov. 1-2.
   Urban poverty persists even in the highest-income countries, it says.
   In Seoul, South Korea, some people are still making a living from refuse dumps. From 1970 to 1986, when the capital's per capita income rose rapidly, the official percentage of families living in substandard housing remained at 17 percent.
   Half the population of Bombay, India, lives in slums. More than 2 million people in Hong Kong are suffering deteriorating health conditions due to pollution.
   Child labor is among urban's poverty's most disturbing features.
   The report says the number of prostitutes under 12 is increasing in Thailand. One-fourth of Indian workers are children under 14 who do everything from brick-making to weaving luxury carpets.
   Another U.N. summary of the report said Asia's urban population of 991 million in 1990 is projected to swell to 2.44 billion -- 55 percent of the world's population -- by the year 2020.
   Most of this increase will be in low-income countries least able to cope: China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
   "A massive demographic and development transition -- the most dramatic ever witnessed by the world -- is clearly under way," the statement said.
"In contrast to earlier views, it is thought to be unstoppable."
   The statement said economic development and the related transition from agriculture to industry make cities grow. Rural development projects and other attempts to reduce migration to cities have achieved little, the report said.
   It proposes a shift in policy to facilitate rather than restrain urbanization.
