Leader(s) for Nepal - Young or Old

Postby kazi » Thu Aug 13, 2009 4:16 am

In order to meet the objectives of this discussion thread, we can also make interesting debate on what type of leader is more suitable. For example, we can start with:

RESOLVE: Young generation leaders vs. Older generation leaders for leadership in new Nepal.

The young generation of course. Along with the line "Jadhyaha ko chhora raksi chhudaina" meaning, the son of a drunkard seldom drinks - I believe the young generation will find it far more difficult at least to do all the nasty things that the old (the current generation in power) is doing.

Or maybe this type of debate is not appropriate for our context in Nepal. I think a more relevant discussion would be to debate on Meritocracy vs. Seniority.

I think the most crucial quality lacking in leaders is not the age or criteria on which they are selected - seniority vs. merit.

I think Nepal needs leaders with integrity and whose actions are in line with their words.

Thank you. @daarshanik, for reviving this thread. I thought it would be an interesting topic for discussion and still believe it to be so.

As traditional as I am, in the context of Nepal I think, with all due respects, the older generation leaders are out-dated because they were freedom fighters against the tyrannical leaders. And I have to say they were good at it. But today is a different world. We need to fight against illiteracy, terrorism and poverty. In the words of Bob Kiyosaki, we need to figure out a way out of the proverbial rat-race. The Kurukshetra has shifted from kings to economy and we need a visionary who can see through the petty political games and lead us to make our mark in the world.. however small or big it may be.
