Acclaimed columnist and business leader Sujeev Shakya examines not only the squandered opportunities of the past but also what Nepali citizens need to do to escape from a feudal history of dependence and powerlessness. Here are resourceful village communities who manage their own electricity, aspirational Nepali youth, energetic migrant workers and driven foreign-aid workers, who can make this dream a reality. Compelling and eminently readable, this updated and enriched edition brings the country alive with its acute business understanding, humour and local colour. Here is a Nepal that could be an Asian Tiger.
