नेपाली प्रधानमंत्री देउबा की भारत यात्रा
पीएम देउबा का दौरा
नेपाल के प्रधानमंत्री शेर बहादुर देउबा अप्रैल महीने में अपनी तीन दिवसीय (एक अप्रैल से तीन अप्रैल 2022) यात्रा पर भारत आए थे। देउबा जुलाई 2021 में पदभार ग्रहण करने के बाद अपनी पहली विदेश यात्रा पर भारत आए थे। उनके साथ 25 सदस्यीय एक प्रतिनिधिमंडल भी आया था। प्रधानमंत्री देउबा की भारत यात्रा कई मायनों में अधिक परिणामदायक साबित हुई है। अव्वल तो यह कि वे पूर्व सरकार के काल में उपजे शक-शुबहा एवं मतभेदों को दूर कर परस्पर संबंधों में भारत को भरोसा दिलाने-जीतने में कामयाब रहे हैं तो दूसरी ओर नेपाल की आर्थिक तरक्की की कई योजनाओं पर भी भारत की रजामंदी हासिल की है। इससे यह उम्मीद बंधी है कि नेपाल-भारत संबंध फिर से पटरी पर हैं और दोनों ही देश मिल कर आगे बढ़ने के प्रति प्रतिबद्ध हैं।

The Conflicts that Just Don’t Go Away
While the Russia-Ukraine war and the patriotic histrionics of Zelensky, obduracy of Putin and bluffing by the West and incongruity of Biden hog the limelight of media and the paparazzi across the spectrum, the forever wars especially in the Middle East continue apace taking the toll in their stride. Perhaps they are not as sexy and European in nature. But they hurt all the same. Fortunately, one can keep fingers crossed as they stay under the threshold. Even some efforts have been made by warring parties to that effect.
