Student Elections in Nepal University: How Free Are Free Stduents’ Unions

nepal-students-clashPast Practices Breaking Hand Bones New Aim Breaking Backbones

By Divas

Nepal’s elected body of Free Students’ Union was established in 1979 after a nationwide students’ protests against the then royal regime called Panchayat System. I don’t know how the student bodies in other countries work, but from what i learn from the news i think Nepal’s as well as Bangladesh & Pakistan's student unions function the same way. Well, my guess is based on the violence reports that come during the campus elections in Nepal, Bangladesh, & Pakistan. The Bahun student chiefs of Nepal have already warned their rivals of not only beating in the polls, but also of breaking each other’s backbones.

The phrase ‘Free Students Union’ itself is a misnomer, since although they call themselves the Students’ Union, all contesting groups in fact are student wings of the major political parties – hence they work more in the interest of their mother parties than for the academic needs of students. The two major political streams of students unions, the Nepal Stduents’ Union (NSU) affiliated to the Nepali Congress party and the various factions of left wings All Nepal National Free Stduents’ Union(ANNFSU) worked against the King’s Rule until a Multi-Party democracy was established in 1990. Since then the NSU & the United Marxist-Leninist (UML) affiliated ANNFSU have been contending against each other bitterly until the last election held in 2006.

If you’d ask me why the left wing student union ANNFSU dominated its rival NSU in all past elections, I’d ask you to compare the NSU and the ANNFSU Websites. When the NSU website unfolded before my eyes, the first thing l noticed was the jolly picture of their grandfather Girija Prasad Koirala. Suddenly I was happy that I did not vote for any NSU candidate in the last election. And if you’d compare the photo galleries of NSU and ANNFSU websites, you’ll suddenly realize why most students chose the ANNFSU in past elections. However, there’s a dilemma this time – there are new kids in the Campuses – the Maoist Party affiliated Revolutionary Union.

However, it seems that ethnic issues would be most influential in determining the outcome of this year’s student elections which is slated for 20th of March. The student bodies of an ethnic group Limbu in the eastern mountains, the Limbuwan Students’ Council (LSC) have vandalized the Panchthar Multiple Campus and forced to put off the election until next notice. The Limbu students demand for a proportional election system in their stronghold areas covering nine districts. Even if the elections are held in other campuses, I’m sure that the only basis for choosing the representatives this time would be the cultural & ethnic one. The Madhesi students in Terai would choose Madhesi candidates, Newars in Kathmandu would choose Newar candidates, and so on.

As for me, i hate breaking any bone, and i’d boycott the NSU, Brahmin & Chhetri, & the bone-breakers and choose among the rest.

UPDATE on March 19: I’m boycotting this year’s student election to protest the continued violence and even more politicization in the campuses. However, I’m aware that someone from the contesting student groups would vote for me – hey losers, if you suspect poll-rigging and are demanding for re-polling, check the voters’ list to make sure if a voter with my name has voted or not – if you find that I’ve cast my vote then be sure that your rivals were more clever this time. For, i’ll be absent in this year’s campus election.


  1. चुनाव ले पनि तहल्कै मच्चाउँछ । पढ्ने ठाउँमा गरिने निर्वाचन त अलि स्तरिय हुनु पर्ने हो । तर कुनै पनि युनियनहरु स्वतन्त्र छैनन्, सबै पार्टि का पछि, अनि त्यसैले झडप !

  2. चुनाव त स्वतन्त्र हुनुपर्थ्यो तर दुर्भाग्य वस हुनसकेने दु:खको कुरा यती Educated भएर पनि !!

  5. Nepalese students are the most voilent and frustrated in the world. There is no example of students burning their own libraries, destrying their classrooms and furniture and lock their teachers, lecturers and professors and lock colleges and universities. Students union supposed to look after student services and protect students' right but not to destroy students' right to study. Good luck to Nepali students.

    Ik vind dit een heel mooie photo omdat ik vroeger, als een kind, ook op deze plek gespeeld hebt. I think this is a very nice photo that I used as a child, even at this point have played. Ik hoop dat myn Nederlands nog een beetje kan gelezen worden want het is een lange tijd dat ik het niet gesproken hebt. I hope that myn English a bit can be read because it is a long time that I have not spoken. Mijn vader was Petrus Wilhelmus Jansen of Piet Jansen - so hij heeft mij een vreemde eerste naam gegeven en toen ben ik met iemand van Dalmatie getrouwd. My father was Petrus Wilhelmus Jansen and Piet Jansen - so he gave me a strange first name and then I married someone of Dalmatia. Mooie photo hoor. Nice photo though.

  7. Lunatic posting of my mother Darda Gregurev and disregard it.

    You have a wonderful website. Congratulations. Have been taking an interest in cyberstalking for the last few years. My daughter Nina Gregurev has been stalked, cyberstalked, harassed, and had literally thousands of malicious comments left at different sites by a guy with whom she has NEVER had any form of relationship. YES, he is a sociopath. Basically we ignored his behaviour for years but as he became more malicious and threatening with intensive use of the internet, I opened a small googlepage and went for the title: OUT YOUR CYBERSTALKER! Darda and Nina Gregurev vs Ranjit Rana. I am only a beginner compared to you guys but might join you on a blog and get set up properly. My daughter has a Restraining Order against the creep but it does not (yet) seem to cover electronic stalking here in South Australia. I seem to be the only one in SA willing to publicly out Ranjit Rana but he has a long history of harassing many different people. Of course, Rana becomes as maliciously venomous as a stirred up cobra when you dare to try and defend your family. Mind you, you will find him in Court on a regular basis to “defend his reputation” (as he puts it). All the same, it is really handy to be able to refer people to my little googlepage whenever I receive yet another message from people he has contacted as if from my daughter or myself.

  8. Most of the above comment was left at a blog concerning CYBERSTALKING. Serial pest RANJIT SHAMSHER JUNG BAHADUR RANA of Adelaide, South Australia, crawls the net constantly looking for information on his stable of victims. He copied the copied, and as a FAKE Nina Gregurev entered a few words above the comment. NINA GREGUREV NEVER USES THE INTERNET DUE TO STALKER AND CYBERSTALKER RANJIT RANA. She does not wish to spoil even one day of her life paying heed to ANYTHING THIS CREEP WRITES. Nina Gregurev also has A RESTRAINING ORDER issued by the South Australian Police early 2008, a matter Ranjit Rana took to the SUPREME COURT, and LOST. The Restraining Order remains in place but Rana ignores the terms which include NO CONTACT WITH NINA GREGUREV THROUGH THIRD PARTIES EITHER. One can only be lawful for so long with a stalker like Rana - why is this person still alive? Nina is certainly not the only person he harasses. RANJIT RANA IS A COWARD, A LIAR, AND A PERPETUAL PAIN TO WOMEN EVERYWHERE. Come on, girls of Nepal - do your duty by one who constantly tells the world he belongs among the former rulers of Nepal.

  9. Another long and boring "comment" by Ranjit Rana, trying to prove he is sane.

    Why then did he this last weekend send an email in someone else's name to the Security Staff at Adelaide University about labourers in the library molesting someone? Perhaps he was unhappy they did not "molest" or at least accost him!

    People are so tired of this little man. You know, around here (Adelaide University) one just has to mention the name RANA and people go "Oh #@$%@#$%$#@!!! Man, is this guy HATED! by EVERYONE!

  10.

    Rumours around Major General Gaurav going to be another benevolent dictator of Nepal. may be he want's to ape Coconut Commander Banirama of Fiji. Nepal Army are frightened that if Major General Gaurav prevails then the international community will cut off Nepalese Army from further peace keeping missions. For example, what has occurred to Fiji and ... Read Morethey may need to go back in Cowdi sea shell and coconut economy. What of Nepal under another Chandra Bharati hybrid clan? My late father had assisted Gaurav pass Army entrance exam as he could barely read and write Nepalese apart from English and pigin Hindi? I am so glad the emancipation and enlightenment of times has come and the days of the last Himalayan Oracles I explained and predicted have finally been a reality.

    Jai Nepal and Jai Gurkha!

  11. rightly said abc ; as is usual, all elections in all countries in our sub-continent, are finally reduced to the level of political parties and casteism. the only example that comes near reality is that of the assam students who managed to create a separate identity for a long time..........
    as in india, as long as you keep differentiating between various factions that have no relation to QUALITY - of man or party or caste or creed or religion - till then u r doomed to the same fate as we are - in india.

  12. have returned
    In the darken night I burn the oil lamp of hope eagerly waiting,
    Tear drops laden I add more to such passing of time.
    I turn volumes of past pages waiting and I pass with the past,
    I sang many songs in memory of you and yet you did not sing.
    I have come back for you out of memory and you have not come.

    These are my thoughts and they have gone cold,
    For you I had collected some flowers and they have wilted.
    I compiled all the memories of you and they have been lost,
    My own shadow has run away from me very far.
    I have come back for you out of memory and you have not come.

    Strange relationship, lots of love that the heart just gets hurt,
    I try to break it, try to wipe it and yet it remains open by itself.
    I hope one day you will come to me and this is my hope for living,
    I have come back for you out of memory and you have not come.

    Inside desolation a ray of hope flashes alight,
    In the flaming heat of fire there is still cool remaining.
    Inside the burning ashes of forest green growth comes,
    The dead love has again been alive with slow pace.
    I have come back for you out of memory and you have not come.

  13. RANJIT Shamsher Jung Bahadur RANA at 7:47am May 1, Adelaide. Stalker and Cyberstalker, wrote a load of crap as usual, but the interesting bit is the following DELUSION of grandeur:-


    "I am so glad the emancipation and enlightenment of times has come and the days of the last Himalayan Oracles I explained and predicted have finally been a reality."


    Duh! Now this w-nk-r of a cyberstalker who hunts tall blonde women and little children (looking for suicide by enraged relatives) SEES HIMSELF AS A HIMALAYAN PROPHET. It won't be long before he too takes to the "forest" and pretends NEVER to eat or drink (except of course, in the dark and in private). This guy is a TOTAL NUTTER, everyone. There are a lot of Rana's in cyberspace - they spawned like frogs, obviously - but this particular one is a danger to society. He really should go back to Nepal - I am sure they know HOW TO TAKE CARE OF A RANA IN NEPAL!! The lazy coward won't move from Hackney, Adelaide, South Australia, he prefers to be a drain on Australian society and a pimple on the landscape. Don't tolerate this w-nk-r on your website. He is a sorry excuse for a man.

  14. Da dis go go ga tracker.

    ENJOY LOL HAH HAH HAH - AS USUAL!!! hah hah hah hah

    Dear Darda

    This morning, His Honour Justice Gray delivered judgment refusing Mr Rana's appeal against the Magistrate's order refusing permission to apply to revoke the restraining order issued in relation to your daughter.

    The judgment will be available on the internet shortly.

    Neither your presence, nor your daughter's was required at Court.

    I hope this clarifies the situation.

    Kind regards

    Nina Gregurev takes heavy lithium injections. She has developed hyperthyroidism and chronic renal failure from this side effect. She smells of piss arising the treatment of her schizoaffcetive disorder since 1992.

  17. The little man Ranjit Shamsher Jung Bahadur Rana, is getting really desperate now. Nina Gregurev is a healthy and beautiful young woman of talent and ability. Ranjit Rana is the one who stinks, and not just a little either. There are worse things than what you sugget Rana, and you suffer from them all. You are MENTALLY, EMOTIONALLY, SPIRITUALLY, dead and deceased and with your propensity for alcohol and various illegal substances, together with your diabetes - (published by you on various sites) - PHYSICALLY it won't be too long, either. I mean, you are getting close to your mother's age when she died, aren't you? And she had diabetes too plus a good dose of alcoholism as it seems the Ranas of Nepal all inherited from their various forebears. Such a bad inheritance coupled with such a disruptive and dysfunctional family background. You never had a chance, little man.

  18. Check my modest little googlepage, reader, and be set straight about Ranjit Rana of Adelaide, stalker and cyberstalker, vexatious litigant and general #^$*%$%#@$ !!

    Read all about it!

    (YOU could be next!) You really do not have to DO ANYTHING to annoy this little w-nk-r - just be a good looking tall blond.

    Blondie and post graduate student and how many years to graduate in Lithium?

  20. Dear patient Reader,

    My comments about Rana may at this time look a bit over the top, but each was in reply to a REALLY malicious comment by Ranjit Rana, usually about my daughter Nina.
    Thankfully the moderator has removed some of his worst comments at this time, but don't hold your breath, the little man will be back as he is obsessed and unfortunately for the rest of us, he suffers from a major personality disorder, which are practically untreatable, especially when the subject has no insight into his own behaviour and character.

  21. Dear patient Reader,

    My comments about Rana may at this time look a bit over the top, but each was in reply to a REALLY malicious comment by Ranjit Rana.

    Thankfully the moderator has removed some of his worst comments at this time.

    NYC benefit program for project to restore an old architectural gem of Nepal
    Indo-Asian News Service

    By Jyotirmoy Datta The Kathmandu Valley Preservation Trust (KVPT) organized a reception and exhibition at Plum Blossoms Gallery in Chelsea in Manhattan on April 1 to benefit the restoration of Yetkha Agam, a private Buddhist shrine that is actively worshipped and that preserves the oldest surviving facade in Kathmandu valley.

    Erich G. Theophile, executive director of KVPT, told News India-Times that they hoped to raise $20,000 from the benefit for the project which is estimated to cost $33,000 or so.

    Over the last ten years, KVPT has rescued over a dozen significant monuments, --- including such 17th century shrines as the Radha Krishna temple, the Patukva Agache, and the Lakhe Agache, the 18th century Kulihma Narayan, and the 19th century Kwalkhu Pati.

    Just as or even more important than the restoration of the physical elements of buildings, Theophile said, was the way the Trust’s work had stimulated local interest in preservation and restoration. Unesco was citing the KVPT experiment as a model for attempts to preserve the heritage of threatened sites throughout the world.

    “In Kathmandu, we found ancient crafts still alive, with young artisans tempted to abandon oc-cupations no longer socially or economically rew-arding, for, say, a job in the archeological department,” Theophile told News India-Times. “More than introducing expertise or money, KVPT introduced an element of awareness of the priceless value of what the Nepalese had with them.”

    So that, there was now a group of the Kathmandu elite which has taken up preservation of the unique architecture of the Kathmandu Valley as its own cause. Among the major supporters of KVPT are members of the prominent Shah and the Rana families, as also the citizenry represented by the Kathmandu Metropolitan Corporation and Lalitpur Municipality.

    In fact the biggest gift has to KVPT has come from Prabhakar S.J.B. Rana, Chairman Emeritus of The Soaltee Group, founded by the uncle of the present king, who rallied other corporations for a total pledge of $150,000.

    Among the benefit co-chairs was Maya Rana Tufo, daughter of S.J.B. Rana, and Maura Moynihan, daughter of former New York Senator and Amba

  24. Another self-praising paean for the Rana tribe -unfortunately for them of course this must a very much outdated article. "The uncle of the present king"??
    Maoism may have their own dictatorial ruler but I think they have never yet called themselves 'king', duh.

    The ghost of the majagorde madonna - really Ranjit Rana - you are now not sure what sex you are supposed to be?

    And why don't you simply sign your comments? Who are you hiding from?

  27. The above comment thanking paramedics was left by me at a fairly obscure site which only someone as obsessed as RANJIT SHAMSHER JUNG BAHADUR RANA of Adelaide South Australia, would bother to search for on the internet. This w-nk-r has nothing better to do than to make vile comments without any sense or regard for any human decency. He is incapable of decency, humane feeling or behaviour as he lacks civilized morality and is mentally ill (but not in the way that he wants the court system to believe). By the way, his daughter is not a psychologist/social worker and appears to have only graduated from a simple undergraduate degree. Ranjit Rana himself pretends to levels of education way beyond his reach - but then he is an inveterate liar with a major social profile problem. He is HATED everywhere and especially in Adelaide and at Deakin University!!! My daughter Nina Gregurev has a RESTRAINING ORDER against this nonentity - but it seems he does not think the law applies to him. I guess a lot of people in Adelaide are waiting for someone lawless to get fed up with Ranjit Rana. I believe it happens in small measures already - he gets bashed up and is a very scared little rat. But we expect more than that one of these days - and when the Homicide squad take a look at his case it will be a crime where the personality of the victim is of the utmost importance. A typical compulsive/obsessive with paranoid ideation. By the way, did you notice the recent article by Professor Goldney in The Advertiser. Very smart man, Professor Goldney - and not easily fooled by self-important racist little men.

  28. Hello darling Ranjit,

    Thank you for your very kind words, I feel I do not deserve them! I am just like any other girl :)

    I am actually studying at uni now, so I am not really pursuing acting anymore, but I wish you all the best for your short film endeavours!


    PS: I like U to market the film 2:27 the role I played about a Bulimic girl at uni (actual story u supplied on ur ex Ina Gregu).

  29. Ranjit Rana - again!! - sending emails to himself as if from some woman or other. Women avoid Rana like the plague. Film endeavours - huh - like everything else - a dream without power to make it reality. By the way Rana NEVER had an EX called Ina Gregu or NINA GREGUREV - she has a restraining order against Ranjit Rana - has never had anything whatsoever to do with him, definitely NEVER had any form of relationship with Rana - and has never been bulimic! Idiot.

  30. Surely you do not think anyone will read all of the above gobbledegook if they are not getting paid to deal with it? The matters posted by Ranjit Rana concerning his usual compensation fights - this one with the defence force - is not suitable commentary on this website. Why is there no one in charge of this website, weeding out Ranjit Rana's rubbish?

    And Rana, your daughter Maya Rana gave you good advice when she told you to stop harassing and cyberstalker her. She said: stop posting your history on the web - no one is interested! Listen to your little girl, you silly man.

  31. Aneroxa nervousa and Bilimic mum and carazy luny

  32. Ranjit Shamsher Jung Bahadur Rana became BANKRUPT on 13 August 2008. AND Ranjit Rana goes around yapping that I want to get money out of HIM??? Duh. Of course BANKRUPTCY does not stop Rana from continuing to TRY AND SUE people for loads of $$$ with made-up complaints that NEVER stand up in ANY court. Give it up, w-nk-r you definitely are a cr-zy luny.

  33. Hi there!
