Sweating Deities and Impending Doom

There is a statue of Bhimeshwor in Charikot, Dolakha. The statue is unique in that it can excrete bodily fluids. Sweat, at least. The statue sweats in anticipation of some impending doom – mostly some misfortune to be visited upon the royal family but not limited to it. Last time it sweated was during the April Uprising. Before that, it was the royal massacre.

Over the weekend, the statue perspired again. Something is up around the corner.

I am not superstitious. But to any loyal …

observer of royal matters, King Gyanendra is. I am sure he is sweating. The 1.5 million signatures against him should have been enough to make him sweat. And now this whole sweating deity to deal with. I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes right now, even if they are expensive imports made out of the most exquisite leather.

King Gyanendra is Knight Grand Cordon of the Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant. With a title like that, you would imagine there were very few things he would be sweating about. Least of all, the statues of his ancestors being smashed up all over the country.

Our politicians are sweating too – sweating about Constituent Assembly dates, party unifications, demonstrations by indigenous and madhesi groups. Hell, if I were to complete the list, I would be sweating too.

With all the sweating going on, one would think the Melamchi project wouldn’t matter much. Collect the sweat, and distill!

My kudos to Hisila Yami, though, for standing up to the man. We all know donors (particularly agenda based donors such as the World Bank, ADB, IMF) impose unfair conditions on developing countries. Severn Trent was one such condition. At least a review of the tenders is a must. Sure enough, we will need donors. But after all, this is money we will have to repay, and it should be our choice to choose who will best spend our money in the best interests of the people.

As far as ministries go, the Maoists are doing a good job of standing up to the man. Matrika Yadav showed Girija’s dictatorial behavior wouldn’t be tolerated silently. And Yadav’s (and YCL’s) work in busting the sandalwood smuggling rings are laudable. He promises more exposures, up to the highest levels, soon.

That’s sure to make plenty of people sweat!

Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.
