I sometimes wonder why there are so many festivals in Nepal. Are Nepali people to forever be swamped by the cultural practices that they never have time to do more productive stuff to develop the nation? 

I was looking at the picture of Traffic Week in Kathmandu. Of all things, Nepalese people were busy celebrating Traffic Week! 

Centuries ago when Nepal was not officially open for tourists, one Chinese traveller is said to have remarked something to the extent of "Nepal has more temples than houses; more gods than people; and more festivals than days." 

Could the very tradition what separates us from the rest of the world - a curse for our development? Our culture is so intertwined in it's cultural practices that barely anyone has time to focus on the growth of the country. 

Just think about all the financial wastage that occurs in one year in Nepal. All the unnecessary 'bhoj' and cultural events. All the unnecessary expenses in Bihe, bartabandha, birth, death, and any other holidays. I'm not saying these are bad practices. But I'm questioning why they are necessary in this day and age. The Nepalese as a whole need to stop wasting money and more so their TIME in these excessive cultural practices and concentrate more on making a better lives for themselves and for their children.

Where honesty, love for others is hard to find in most of the people who are leading as well as those following, you get a failed society, a failed nation. It's a self destroying phenomenon.
