Nepal is in the final hot planning stages to build the first subway train system in Chitwan, or rather underneath the jungle of Chitwan.
Sources who wish to remain anonymous confirmed that star architect Norman Foster will design the project. “I am fostering this idea since some years and feel, that now is the right time as Nepal is on a development rampage, so to say,” Mr. Foster was quoted.
It is said to be the very first rhino-trample-proof subway system in the world and will have a midway exit at the super-lush resort of Tiger Tops. Tiger Mountain CEO Robin Marston pulled all diplomatic stops to make sure that his companies’ cocktail-slurping clientele get the service and convenience they deserve. “Tiger Mountain is a mission-driven company whose corporate values and mantra strive to combine nature, progress and sustainable tourism in one corporate dharma,” said Mr. Marston.
We have held back for quite some time because we did not in the slightest want to interfere with the holiest this great country has to offer. ELECTIONS.
If we counted correctly, it were the fifteenths elections in half as many years. But that is not the point. We would like to draw your esteemed attention to grrreat developments since the Nepali pipuls thought that democracy might be a pretty good idea instead of having a bloke sitting in a pompous shack for decades. So here goes.

This graph shows that it takes some getting used to democracy from 2000 till mid 2004. But then, oh boy, we have lift off. Something odd seemed to happen in mid 2006, yet this would not be Nepal if it would not power on northwards.
Slight dip as all over the world from third quarter 2008 for obvious reasons. But this is only a consolidation dip. Never heard of this? Well, now you have.
The graph shows of course much much more. Not only does democracy work as an opportunity to move your legs usually every four years and as an incubator for economic growth. No, this graph shows how Nepal has achieved it:
By sending out into the world its youngest and brightest to work in balmy and qatari conditions with deferred payments, early retirement in a box and other prospects.
Keep going, Nepal!
After 46 years of providing a pretty decent strip to land on, Kathmandu’s CAAN decided to go even more green and banish wide-body planes from landing on its royal turf of concrete at Tribhuvan International Airport.
It has published a list of planes admitted to land at TIA as these photos show.
Airlines such as Thai Airways, Qatar Airways etc. have one month time to adapt to Nepal’s new stringent code of quality tourism. Or just bugger off.
‘Gone are the days of mass transport’, said CAAN Dir. Gen Chandra Lal Suman. ‘Nepal will fully concentrate on high-spending individual travelers. We will be a Super-Bhutan, in fact, Bhutan will not believe what is going to hit them. Our TargMax will be 8,000 travelers per year admitted to Nepal-Nirvana. They will be gliding in in small planes on a super-fluffy-smoothie-smoochy airstrip being soon constructed at TIA.’

NEPAL: Foreign aid, government expenditure and revenue
What better way to show the effectiveness of the aid business.
Out of the jungle and on to the catwalk, or
They seek him here, they seek him there,
His clothes are loud, but never square.
It will make or break him so he’s got to buy the best,
‘Cause he’s a dedicated follower of fashion.
