  3. Nepalisongs’ predisposed views against Maoists clearly reflect the failure of people like him to comprehend the scenario in a broder perspectives.

    Wake up dude! The country is in WAR! The GORY pictures that you pretend to resent are not going to vanish unless the people like you START thinking rationally, not emotionally, to step up pressure on the royal regime which is keen on prolonging the conflict to marginalise the political forces and hold on to power illegitimately.
