Though Nepal has some bad factors like any other country it also has some good factors. It is famous for its beautiful mountains and someone used to say if Nepal’s mountains are cut and laid flat Nepal would be larger than India, The only problem is lack of development. The pages of Nepali culture and history are too beautiful to have the filth of the urban cities splattered upon them.
I feel that Nepal can grow in terms of a country if there is more of an effort to increase tourism. Tourists come to see the mountains, but are disappointed by the garbage and dirt in the city. The tourists should be impressed by both the scenery and the cities. Another problem is that Nepali tourists are not treated with nearly as much respect as foreign tourists in most restaurants, hotels or any other place. This is very unfair and this particular problem makes no sense at all. Internal tourism, in my opinion, is extremely important and should really be somehow promoted.
The villages and cities stand in sharp contrast. The villages though without resources and new technology are wealthy in natural beauty and unpolluted, whereas, the cities are dirty and very polluted even though they have advanced further than the villages. I find it very funny that there are keep Kathmandu clean signs in and around the city, if it is dirty in the first place than how can it be kept clean? The villages can and should be more developed and the cities should be cleaner and more organized.
Organization is also something the cities lack. You see random people selling random things in random places. People build their houses less than four inches apart. Not to mention, nobody cares for the lawns. The traffic is dangerous and simply horrible, one julus or protest march can throw everyone’s lives off balance traffic wise. The reasons for these problems are that nobody cares about them, it is mandatory for everyone to follow laws and rules.
Nepal’s beautiful sights and sounds need to be protected at any cost; pollution is making Kathmandu warmer and warmer. The capital on such a great country is not so great anymore. Other cities are not any better. The only people that can make a difference in the dark future of Nepal are its own sons and daughters. I think Nepal should use its assets, its natural beauty to grow in every way.
The country of Nepal houses Lumbini, Muktinath, Pashupati and other holy and sacred places, but the condition of the cities overshadows this. In conclusion, this problem is one that should be addressed hurriedly before it becomes too late and the country is strangled by its own mistakes.
