MONARCHY VS. DEMOCRACY: The Epic Fight in Nepal
MONARCHY VS. DEMOCRACY: The Epic Fight in Nepal
Description
About the Book:

The democratic movement of the mepalese people against absolute monarachy, going on for more than half a century, is now heading towards a climax. The nine-year long People War led by the CPN for a people republic has virtually wiped out the feudal socio-economic and cultural roots of the monarchy from the vast rural areas. This historical struggle between monarchy and democracy has drawn the attention of the whole world in recent years. It has made the imperialist nations led by US very restless whereas it has ignited a ray of hope among the people opposed to imperialism, feudalism and those who stand of understanding about the real nature of this struggle even among the close observers of the Nepalese politics.

The book Monarchy vs. Democracy: The Epic Fight in Nepal deals with the period after the infamous palace massacre of June 2001. The chain of events since then viz. declaration of national emergency and deployment of royal army since November 2001, dissolution and parliament in May 2002, dismissal of elected Prime Minister and assumption of executive powers by the king in October 2002 which culminated in the imposition of absolute monarchy on February 1, 2005, amply testifies the regressive intentions of the Monarchy. The main demand of Moists, today is that is a Constituent Assembly should be elected for the new constitution. The process of polarization in favour of this demand has intensified since the autocratic step taken by the King on February 1. But surprisingly the ruling elite of India and the US still consider Monarchy essential for the stability of Nepal.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
