I really want to ask you sajhites - would you really vote for Balen Shah if you were in Kathmandu? I ask this question because I have reservation about Balen Shah's leadership and more specifically management capability. I am not questiong his singing ability and larger than life personality. He seems like a dude that you want to have a beer with! However, I don't have know anything about his management ability/skill other than he "wants" to do good and get rid of oldies. I have a child, and I am not comfortable about raising my child in a city run by some famous singer. He just doesn't seem to have track record in management. And, managing a city of about 2-3 million people is not a easy job. And, on top of that Kathmandu has been poorly managed for decades. The trash everywhere is a proof of that!

What do you think? Do you really think that this young man can take care of business for the betterment of your children's health and education? I understand that at the end of the day you have to pick best candidate among the running candidates. The ideal candidate is usually not the ballot box. Who would be your choice and for what reason?

Niko Omilana, a 23 year old YouTube prankster actually ran for mayor of London and got shockingly high amount of votes considering he is a YouTube prankster.

He made a big mistake by running as independent otherwise he had a chance to win. Even if he wins by miracle it will be huge uphill battle to play with ward leaders who lean toward a particular party. Sadly, he very slim chance of winning. It will be probably Keshav Stapit.

It is good for Balen Shah that he is leading the vote count by huge margin as of now (about 12,000). He is certainly a symbol of change in Nepali politics, and much needed one. Nepali politics had been so disgraceful and negative in the last few decades. He has certainly put some positive vibes to the politics.

However, I don't think that this should be the trend in the Nepali society. Young people should not try to take all the responsibility to do a better job for the society as a whole. They should certainly do a better job in whatever they do, and by doing so they will be doing good for the society. I still think that the older people specially in their late 40s to 60s have more resources at their disposal to do a better job for the whole of society. They have money, networking, experience and time. Besides few exceptions, like Balen, and it is sometimes necessary one to teach them a lesson, the younger generation should push the older generation to think for the society and use their resources at their disposal for better of the society. The younger generation should not just get angry at the older generation, that does not work. The oldies should be made feel bad and selfish for not contributing for the better of the society. And, they can take some emotional beating. Afterall, they raised us.

To the younger people, I admire your enthusiasm and dedication to do good for the society, but I also urge you to think about yourself and your mental health.

So compare your comment from 11 days back and now. You are taking a turn.

So why not Balen Shah? What have any leaders done to Nepal than just loot the country? So either Balen will do good or will do the same. In any case, people won’t be any worse off. If it turns out he does good then people will benefit. So he is worth voting for.

That was my personal opinion then, and it is still my opinion. However, the people of Kathmandu had different opinion about Balen Shah apparently. Good for Balen Shah.
