Alternative Abstract
Maoist Conflict of Nepal has had a long history. Root causes of the conflict have been political, social, economic suppression, absence of rule of law, corruption, politicization of bureaucracy, cast base social structures etc. With the establishment of multiparty democracy in 1990, people expected that democracy could bring the end of the corrupt, discriminative and closed system and could bring socio-economic progress, better life with sound social security, a transparent political system that reflect the will and wishes of all the peoples. However, contrary to their expectation the new system could not materialized the peoples’ expectations as they were still being excluded from participating in the political and developmental process. The conflict has taken the toll on thousands of people’s life and billion worth of properties, infrastructures. November 21, 2006 was a landmark in the history of Nepal as it spelled the end of the decade-long insurgency. History took a turn as the conflicting parties could strike a peace deal. Today Nepal is undergoing one of the most critical periods in its history to sustain the peace that has been earned by great efforts of the two parties. The peace accord has set an example for the rest of the world to resort peaceful means to end the conflict. It has given rise to new hopes. It has put behind the era of terror and uncertainty. Now the nation has to enter a new phase of mass involvement for the genuine transformation of society and establishment of peace. For lasting peace Nepal needs to solve root causes that had led to Maoist conflict so that hard earned peace can be sustained and promoted in the future. All conflicts are not necessarily bad and negative all the time. In context of Nepal if this conflict is properly tackled it might bring sustainable peace and beginning of new era. Albert Einstein once said “formation of a problem is often more essential than its solution”.
