Question Here are three opinions heard in a television debate on the struggle for democracy in Nepal. Which of these do you agree with and why?
Guest 1: India is a democracy. Therefore, the Indian government must support the people of Nepal who are struggling against monarchy and for democracy.
Guest 2: That is a dangerous argument. We would be in the same position as the US was in Iraq. Remember, no outside force can promote democracy.
Guest 3:But why should we bother about the internal affairs of another country? We should be worried about our business interests there, not about democracy.
Answer : We can’t totally neglect our neighbours as what doing in their country must affect our behaviour also. So in my opinion Guest 1 is right in some way. We have to adopt some measures that will support the poeple who are struggling against monarchy and for democracy. Not by military but by some other cooperations which will not hurt the sentiments of the people. This will also help India in maintaining a good relationship with democratic country rather than a monarchial rule.
