Effects of recession on Nepal and vario काठमाडौं

Effects of recession on Nepal and various sectors and industries due to COVID-19:

The continuous positive tests and reported deaths in other countries due to novel corona virus (COVID-19) has created widespread concerns in Nepal also. Nepal is starting to suffer the most widespread cessation of economic activity due to outbreak of this virus. As per the analysis by the Asian Development Bank, the outbreak of this deadly disease will hit almost every sector of the Nepali economy. We can see the impact on the number of sectors such as tourism, trade and production linkages, supply and health. Especially the entire service industries: tourism, aviation and hospitality sector have been hit hardly

We can see the following effects from the beginning of this outbreak:

1. With the launch of visit Nepal 2020 campaign in January, the country was in hope to attract two million visitors, but due the corona pandemic the campaign got cancelled which has shattered the hospitality and tourism related business sector. With this the tourist arrival rate has declined to below 10 percent, from 70 percent before the Covid-19 outbreak which resulted in job loss of around 13,000 tour, trekking and mountain guides. Tourism sector, being one of the largest industry has been contributing 8 percent to Nepal’s economy.

2. Banks are suffering in loss of their investments in hospitality and aviation due to the coronavirus.

3. The impact has been also seen in the manufacturing industries. As most raw materials including pharmaceutical chemicals come from China, supply of these raw materials has decreased drastically.

4. The remittance from foreign employment contribute approx. 26% of the country’s GDP. After the outbreak of this virus, most of the countries announced lockdown which resulted in decline in import of foreign remittance. In these two months the remittance source has been contributed less than 1% in country’s economy. The downturn in remittance has created severe impact on overall consumption in the country.

5. The decline in remittances will affect consumer demand, leading to further slowdown in the economy. This will have multiple effects, including its effects on revenue, employment and earnings of the workers. In that situation, it will hit hard to the financial sector.

6. The wholesale and retail sector is the second largest contributor to the economy, after agriculture. The sector contributes 14.37 percent to the economy, which is already being affected by the drastic downfall in imports from China following the outbreak of the disease.

7. We can also see a high risk of general inflation, which will further result in importing the products from the third country due to limited supply from china. Importing products from third country may become more costly.

8. While there has been little impact on trade with India, which accounts for around 65 percent of Nepal’s trade, there are signs that things will not remain the same.

9. It is likely that some of these projects, which are already running far behind schedule, could face further delays. All this is expected to raise project costs.

10. Nepal being one of the least developed economy, it has to rely on foreign aid for various developmental activities. Due to this outbreak the inflow of foreign aid is assumed to decline due to hard time for donor countries.

11. The upcoming recession will force businesses, families and individual to cut the expenses as well as decrease in purchasing power of the consumer can be observed.

12. It is likely to have the shortage of cash in the market and cash crisis which will ultimately result in restrictions in advancing the loans to the business and individuals by the banking and financial intuitions.

13. We can also see the development in e-commerce, Logistics and delivery etc. due to this outbreak and lockdown.

As we can see that the almost all major sector of the economy is affected which constitute the major part of country’s GDP. Whereas the positive rise of ecommerce business can be seen.

Current education system in Nepal and challenges due to COVID-19

The Nepali education system has failed to provide the same educational standards that the global industry demands. The current knowledge trend in Nepal is such that students are pursuing degrees not for the sake of knowledge gaining but for the sake of earning an undergraduate certification.

In the run for qualitative education and the resultant good job prospects, many students across the globe prefer pursuing higher education in foreign destinations. And Nepali foreign education aspirants are no exception here. An overview of the past few generations knowledge gaining shows that the younger has not learned anything new than the older generations.

The education system here is highly theoretical. It is based more on theories present in the textbook than in practical knowledge which does not do a favor for the students to testify their knowledge in the field. And that’s when things get difficult for students as they lack experience and can’t cooperate effectively in their fields.

The following factors pose a challenge to Nepal’s education system:

 Political Instability and bureaucracy

 Lack of Practical learning approach

 Nepalese Permanently Settling Abroad

Challenges in education due to COVID-19

To prevent the spread of the COVID-19 disease, the majority of governments around the world have resorted to nationwide or localized lockdowns, including the closure of schools. As a result, more than one billion children around the world are currently out of school and in need of alternative forms of education. Following consequences can be observed in Nepal where there is lower learning outcome and high dropout rate

 Family poverty and loss of income

 Increased child labor

 Increased child marriages(particularly affecting girls)

In the past decades, Nepal has witnessed significant improvements in access to education for children across the country. In fact, the current enrolment rate of children in primary education is about 96%, compared to 72% in

2000. Additionally, the adult (15+) literacy rate of the Nepali population has grown steadily from 21% in 1981 to 68% in 2018.

As shown previously, the education system of Nepal is highly influenced by the poverty and inequality prevailing in the country. As a result, the ability to enjoy education is limited for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. As history has shown, these children are the first to suffer when a disaster takes place. Therefore, it can be predicted that children in rural areas, from lower castes and girl children are most likely to be negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Schools in Nepal have been closed for almost eight months. To limit the negative impact of the pandemic on learning opportunities of the children, the education cluster of Nepal agreed on providing opportunity of learning through Internet, TV, Radio and print media. However education cluster will need to take into account the barriers of poverty and inequality and the increased child labor and child marriage risks that have cost many children their education during past health emergencies and crises.

Nepali government introduced schooling via television for grades 6-10 as part of its “Digital Education System”. However, the Share cast Initiative’s 2017 survey shows that only 72% of households in Nepal own a television. This allows the majority of children to take part in the television classes, but still likely excludes more than a quarter of the student population. Furthermore, the frequent electricity cuts also interfere with access to this form of schooling. In fact, in 2012 only 49% of the rural population of Nepal was estimated to have access to electricity, compared to 93% of the urban population.

Simultaneously, the government invested 70 million rupees (approximately 570,000 USD) to develop and launch online classes. Like the television rate, about 72% of the Nepali population is estimated to have internet access. However, this share of population is almost entirely located in urban areas and represent higher-income families. Rural areas also face lower quality of internet connections. The online classes require 3G internet access which is both costly and largely unavailable in rural areas. Furthermore, it remains questionable whether teachers are skilled enough to use online tools for teaching as they face the same internet limitations as their students and have likely not been trained to teach virtual classes.

Most of the students have a cellphone in their home, which they are now using to access the radio schools. Since internet connectivity is a severe bottleneck in Nepal, arrangements can be sought with internet and telecom providers to provide zero-bandwidth or zero-cost access to learning portals. This will require that new servers and network hardware be set up in many provinces to handle higher traffic. Teachers also need to receive adequate training to master the technology so that they can provide support to children with remote learning tools and materials.

COVID-19 has tested the limits of Nepal’s education system, and much progress remains to be made to improve children’s learning.

But the pandemic has also revealed how quickly the country could stand up to the challenge to ensure that children can continue their education now and be better able down the road to contribute to a more prosperous Nepal.

Being a common girl

I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common girl with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up.

Being a girl like me can become a difficult life style. I myself a girl, born and raised as one. so I know first hand that I can be very weak and take many chances. I’m also the target for a lot of people, for emotional support and other things. My parents depend a lot on me to take care of things when they can’t, especially because I'm the only girl.

By being a girl I am setting a line. Yes I will do my hair, yes I like dressing nicely, and yes I do wear make-up. I will not be criticized by what I want to do and what I like to do. Yes I am a girl so I will settle down one day, but with someone who sees me as a person not as a play toy. Someone who understands, that I am as much as a person as they are. Someone who believes love doesn’t come from the outside of your body but from the inside of your soul, someone who understands me, cares for me, and respects me.

Just because i fail once, doesn't mean i am going to fail at everything. I will Keep trying, I will hold on, and always, always, always believe in myself, because if i don't, then who will? So I will keep my head high, keep my chin up, and most importantly, I will keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about. My world is only as big as my wildest dream but it’s okay to live a life which others don’t understand.

And this one is especially for you all:

“Don’t lose faith when you see others receiving answers to their prayers.

Don’t be envious of others testimony, if you haven’t received your own blessings, don’t despair”

Say to yourself – my time is coming and when it hits the surface of the earth , people shall yield in admiration.”

Why Greater Nepal is possible?

Nepal has a unique strong identity among the nations of Asia as a sovereign state, but it holds shaky balance between India and china.The bilateral relationship between these two countries is troublesome because of the treaties and agreement that have been signed by them. it has been an “India-locked” country throughout the history, where India influences the major aspects of social, economic and political institutions.

The Indo-Nepal friendship was started by the Rana government in 1950 by ratifying two treaties; Treaty of Peace and Friendship (TPF) and Trade Treaty (TT) by both governments. Although the cooperation between the states exists through various treaties and agreements, it is very difficult to sustain because those treaties are perceived as “unequal” and “controversial” . On the other hand, India always attempts to maximize its benefits by breaking the treaties and diminishing Nepal’s sovereignty in several ways. It shows that India always want to expand power in Nepal and will relate to Nepal when needed. In conclusion if India tries to stop the domination habit in Nepal and if it starts to talk regarding the treaty that they have sign and implement those written words,definitely Nepal will be a greater Nepal



1) According to international laws,

if a treaty is signed under threat,

it's is void. So, sugauli treaty is


2)International laws says that if

there is the absence of any of the

signatories, the treaty is void.

3) There is no british

east india company now (after

1947). So the land is, legally, of Nepal.

4) Even if the Sugauli treaty exists,

the land is still Nepal's, legally.

Becozz the term "in perpetuity"

means something is taken for a

lease/rent and the same term is used for the territories of Nepal in

the sugauli treaty.

5) The main aim of treaty of 1950

signed between U.K. and Nepal

was to return back the land of

nepal which the Ranas didn't bothered to listen to the British.

And the last one

6) Next treaty signed

in 1950 between nepal and india

states that all the treaties signed between Nepal and East India

before that day were nullified.

So, sugauli treaty is also nullified.

Hence, places like Nainital,

kumaon, gadhwal, Darjeeling,

Sikkim, teria parts upto Allahbad in the south must be returned to

कोरोना माहामारी सुरु हुनु केहि अगाडी दुर्गा नगर बिकास समाज देखी बासुकी मन्दिर सम्म पुग्न १५० वटा पक्की सिडी सहितको भर्याङको निर्माण सम्पन्न भयो । सिडिको एकतर्फ फलामको बार राखेर सुरक्षित गर्ने काम पनि गरियो ।

डन्डिमा खिया नलागोस भनेर सिडिको बारमा निलो रङ लगाउदा आकर्षक देखियो ।रङ लगाउदै गर्दा एकजना कर्मचारिले पर्खालको भित्तामा लेखिदियो सेल्फी डाडा ।

कोरोना माहामरीको पहिलो लहर सुरु भई, लकडाउनको समय सबै तिर बन्द भएको र सबैलाई फुर्शद पनि भएकोले सेल्फी डाडामा दैनिक जसो मान्छेहरु आउने, सेल्फी खिच्ने, टिकटक भिडिओ बनाउने हरुको भिड नै लाग्न थाल्यो ।कुनै

गर्न भन्दै पुलिस नै आउने गर्न थल्यो । पुलिस आउँदा मानिशहरु आ-आफ्नो घर तिर गएजस्तो गर्ने अनि फेरी पुलिस फर्केपछी फेरी तेही जम्मा हुने गर्थे ।

यस्तैमा कोरोना माहामारीको दोस्रो लहर सगै दोस्रो लकडाउन सुरु भयो । सेल्फी डाडामा अहिले पनि मानिशहरुको उत्तिकै भिड लाग्ने गरेको छ । पहिले भन्दा अलि फरक अचेल सेल्फी डाडामा प्रेमी प्रेमिकाको जोडीहरु जम्मा हुने गरेका

छन । बाइक स्कुटरमा बासुकी मन्दिर सम्म आएर, सेल्फी डाडामा फोटो, भिडिओ खिच्ने, प्रेमिल गफमा रम्ने जोडीहरु लाई तर्साउने र सतर्क गराउन पुलिस दिनको ३,४ पटक आउने जाने गर्दछन ।

कोरोनाको तेस्रो लहर आउँदा पहिला जस्तो लकडाउन भएन । अफिस तथा सरकारी कार्यालय हरु पनि बन्द भएनन । कोरोना सगै मानिशहरु काम काजमा ब्यस्त हुन थालेका छन । केहि दिनला लागी गाडीमा जोर्-बिजोर प्रणाली लागु

यतिबेला सेफी डाडामा जम्मा हुने मनिशहरमा निकै नै कमी आएको छ । अचेल सेल्फी डाडा गाजा, चुरोट खानेहरुको अखडा बनेको छ । मनिशहरको आउजाउ कम हुनुका साथै पुलिसहरु पनि आउन छाडेका छन ।साझ बिहान मात्र नभएर

दिनै भरी पनि कलीला उमेरका केटा केटिहरु सेल्फी डाडा वरिपरी जम्मा हुँदै चुरोट तन्ने गरेका छन । सेल्फी डाडाको बदलिएको अवस्थाले सबैलाई चिन्तीन पारेको छ ।

“‘Be thankful’ (Colossians 3:15) is a recurring exhortation in the letters of the apostle Paul. No other New Testament writer gives such a sustained emphasis on thanksgiving―and yet, major modern studies of Paul fail to wrestle with it. Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara aims to rehabilitate this theme in this comprehensive and accessible study, a New Studies in Biblical Theology volume. He shows how, for Paul, thanksgiving is grounded in the covenantal traditions of salvation history. To offer thanks to God is to live a life of worship and to anticipate the future acts of God, all in submission to the lordship of Christ. Ingratitude to God is idolatry. Thanksgiving functions as a link between theology, including eschatology, and ethics. Here Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara provides clear insights into the passion of an apostle who never fails to insist on the significance of both the gospel message and the response this message demands. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understanding their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.”

“What Christians believe about God is visible in how they exhibit thankfulness for all he has done on their behalf. Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara offers a practical resource to encourage believers to express glad-hearted thankfulness for God’s unending provision. This book provides insight into daily practices that exemplify thankfulness, such as speaking a word of thanks to a neighbor, serving others in a practical way, or thanking God for his many gifts.

By living each day with gratitude in mind, Christians are doing more than saying a word of thanks or lending a helping hand – they are recognizing the absolute and total lordship of God, his sovereignty over all things, and his kindness in using his almighty power to work all things for good.”

“The apostle Paul instructed the Philippians to be anxious in nothing and thankful in everything. And when he said everything – he meant everything. We can all agree that this is easier said than done. Disappointments and discontent may cause you to slip into dissatisfaction, and grumbling becomes a state of mind – gratitude seems impossible to find. However, what if this is the precise reason you lack the joy of a God-filled life? Instead of a reaction to when things are going well, what if gratitude is actually necessary to knowing the hope of our gracious God?

This is exactly what Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara identifies in The Thanksgiving a price paid for life and living. Dr. Kamara examines the biblical foundations of thankfulness and traces how it can reshape every-day Christian living. When we express gratitude in all things, we not only praise our Creator, we also get to know Him better. With This Book, you’ll learn how to practice thanksgiving in both simple and extraordinary ways, even when you’re tempted to dwell on the negative. You’ll find your outlook on life realigned to see the hand of God in everything, strengthening your trust in Him. And in doing so, you’ll find greater, more joy-filled reasons to continue expressing thanks to our good and generous God.” I recommend this Book to be read and as you do God bless you.

Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to choose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself, but with other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy.

Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts story, choosing the need for Gratitude the Journey to Joy challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention, a life based on thankfulness for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others.

By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are.

To not choose gratitude is more costly than we usually realize. When we do choose a lifestyle of heartfelt, humble gratitude, we are mindful of the benefits received from our gracious Savior and those He has placed around us, and our joy becomes full.”

“How to grow as thankful Person of God.

We are often encouraged to ‘count our blessings’. But truly biblical gratitude is much more than this.

Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara unpacks Scripture to help us grow in gracious gratitude—thanking God for who he is, as well as natural gratitude— thanking him for his blessings. She also helps women to identify and deal with some of the things that hinder them so that they can rediscover the joy of a thankful heart.

This thoroughly Bible-centered unpacking of the reasons for gratitude builds on Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara 14 years’ experience in mentoring, Pastoring and Teaching at The Word of Faith Bible Institute and Rudolph Kwanue University College and Grace International Bible University.

Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this book ideal for group use as well as for individuals.”

The reason for this Book

1. I gave a lecture on the life of Thanksgiving at a graduation Ceremony in 2021, which was held at Lofa County, in the Republic of Liberia.

2. I gave another lecture at Winners Chapel International New London Bo, on Friday 16th May 2019 and its topic was ‘ The Power of thanksgiving and always give thanks for all things ‘ (Eph. 5:20)

3. Also, a third lecture - on our Word of Faith Bible Institute Program, on 15th October 2020 mainly on the Life of Thanksgiving, and a part on the Life of Submission and Hope.

GOD gave me time during my trip to Liberia last year so I combined the three lectures, with many additions in one book on the ‘thanksgiving is a price to paid for life and living’ which is now on your hands published as book with contemplations on the prayer of Thanksgiving which was given by the word of God in the Bible. Which will be printed for church leaders and followers? I hope - God’s willing – will reach you in good health in Jesus Mighty Name!

1. Every Thing that has breath should praise The Lord- Ps. 150:6

2. It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord-Ps. 92:1

I discovered that the most expensive thing to managed in Man is life


1. We have life= we call it breath Ps. 150:6, in scriptures we called it breath and with God is free for 24 hours 30 days and 365 days per year

2. We have life = in science we called it Oxygen= for Medical Science is costly

· Oxygen per day cost = 1,200,000

· Oxygen per Month = 36,000,000

· Oxygen per year = 432,000,000

· Now if you are five years = 2,160,000,000

· Now if you are Ten years = 4,320,000,000

· Now if you are Twenty years =8,640,000,000

· Now if you are Thirty Nine years =1,044,000,000

· Now if you are Thirty years =12,960,000,000

· Now if you are forty years =17,280,000,000

· Now if you are fifty years = 21,600,000,000

· Now if you are sixty years =25,920,000,000

· Now if you are seventy years=30,240,000,000

· We all owe God according to our ages

Do you see why we must give God Thanks?
