Spoke with Thuldai a few hours ago. He is Nepali and offered this posting:

By the Grace of God the most merciful and truthful, His Majesty King Gyanendra action is truely justified against the ill activities that has been prevelent in Nepal in the name of " democracy" for years. The political identities and their subjects has created more anarchy and injustice to our people and our beloved land. In the name of "democracy" we have witnessed plunder, rape and injustice done to our dear motherland and its people. Political parties and its candidates have exploited the very window of democracy from every angle possible for their own well being..
We should realize that being a landlocked nation we have compromised in many terms with our neighbors in our very existence as an independent nation State. We have compromised in the name of "democracy" and trusted our leaders for nothing more than to add more misery to our deprived people and land. We have compromised in terms of political wind that made Nepal what it is seen today. We have compromised to great bullies and made every possible for them to make best use of us.
We very much understand that we depend on interwoven world where " democracy" plays a vital role for very existence of nation states. We understand and agree that " fundamental rights" is a strong foundation of any nation states. But have we really thought of what we have given or done to our dear nation in the name of democracy? Have we really thought what we could do for our beloved nation? Have we really thought to be a realist and face the facts of our years of democratic rule? Many foreign medias look into Nepal as a hot soup that could be poured down the drain or consumed. Is our society and Nation that weak to be challenged? Have our sovereign status been challenged in the name of " democracy"? Has there been someone who would come forward and say " MY Nepal and my Only Nepal"? None has come forward than our Father of the Nation, " His Majesty King Gyanendra".
We should not forget that apart from unity of Nepal it is a symbol of the Crown that makes our identity. Our Kings through years have never been violent or dictators like seen in other nations. Infact they have united and came forward in the moment of national crises. Do you think looking at our so called "leaders and protectors" of democracy like Koiralas, Deubas, Madhav Kumars and list goes on have ever come forward for the welfare of the nation than to compete for the seat for prime ministership? Why does anyone needs to be a PM to protect their country?
As a democracy states " successful democracy and its society is prevelant where all people plays an important role of a civic society". A nation without its responsible citizens is no nation but a root of uncivilized offsprings and democracy can never be successful in such a democratic society.
We have seen in the last fifteen years what democracy has brought to our motherland. You, me and all are the witness to it. Can we furthur risk ourselves and be a puppet of India by allowing the " great knowledgeble leaders" to once again come to power and drain us all of what we have? We have lost enough, we have lost lives that is so precious. It was time when in Nepal crime was unheard of. Do you remember any murders or serious crimes commited before we came under the golden glove of democracy?
Our Late Majesty King Birendra gave democracy to our people for what they want. Our Late Majesty also became a silent spectator as a constitutional Monarch and observed keenly the pulling of chairs and struggling for the greed of power amongst our democratically elected leaders. We have seen FIFTEEN Prime-Ministers of various parties in an achieved democracy of FOURTEEN years. We have witnessed enough of what " ill guided democracy" can lead to. And now we have to put an end to it sooner or later for the best of our land and its people. If the democracy was followed truthfully by our political Leaders we would not face what we see today. Many deprived people have been a tool of Maoism or communism, If our leaders had followed a " rightful path towards democracy" and respecting all lives we would not have witnessed to what we see today.
Nepal at present is at crises. Do not get fooled by what others say or what you hear. Judge by facts and ask yourself of what is right for you, for others and for the nation. Let us not look at monarchy of what it will do or what will happen in the future. Let us not point at an individual of what his son or sons have commited but to look what can be done for the best and prevent the future of our land from rumors spread.
