No Gas / Blackmarket Price / We Are Not Bending  

Since over 2 month the conflict between India and Nepal defines the life’s of it’s people. Hardly any gas is available and if yes: you need to line up for days! The gas containers get only filled half and cost around 700RS now. Blackmarket price is 7000Rs.

The pictures speak for themselves! This is a scandal after what the country went through: the earthquake devistation and trauma. For sure not helping the rebuild of Nepal. 

    
    

In case you wonder what this is all about: http://www.wsj.com/articles/BL-IRTB-30919

The distributed firewood is the alternative to the gas cooking. You can see open fireplaces all over the city even in staircases. I saw a big barrel of petroleum in a private  room. The smell was so strong that it was hard for me to stay in the room for even 3 min., a room that is used by 3 young men to sleep….😞

    Do not blame India for your woes. Give equal rights to your own people instead of treating them as foreigners.

        Always difficult to really understand what is going on. That applies to many current situations around the world actually. At the end People do suffer and that’s not ok. That is obvious to me. Corruption, money, power, greed, dominance, politics, religion etc. are in the mix and way to many times create a mess …

        All I know is India will not create a blockade.It is thus unfair to blame a friendly country with whom you share a seamless border when the problem ( and solution) lie in our own hands. Give the Madhesis their rights as citizens of your country.
