When no leaders could lead – protest goes digital with Facebook

Leaders need to lead people for their betterment. But in Nepal, the term ‘leader’ itself is redefined as a person who talks big, deceives public, runs after a post, and earns him/herself a fortune in a record time.

One of the participants read satirical poem that shows the frustration of Nepali youth against the failure of the political leaders to lead the country. The poetic representation of “the current state of ethical bankruptcy among Nepal’s top politicians” is simply hilarious.
