Seems old killer-P is going big time for the new makeover. Last week he played a round of golf with U.S. ambassador James Moriarty. http://kantipuronline.com/kolnews.php?&nid=39408
One wonders how, in the midst of Nepal’s crisis, the U.S. ambassador found the time to organize his “Ambassador’s Cup” golf tournament. Blogdai guesses that Moriarty must have too much time on his hands. Forget human rights and press suppression. Forget the Maoist insurgency and the U.S.’s pending arms deal to the King: we’ve got a golf tournament to play!!
Paras's golf coach, "Butch Harmon" Chettri emplores Paras to "visualize shooting the ceiling of a disco" to help our Prince maintain his focus, while Princess himani watches Paras's "driving prowess" through protective eyewear.
Since Moriarty is supposed to set the tone for U.S. policy in Nepal, one also has to wonder what kind of signals he is sending to the world. Looks like he doesn’t care and would rather be back in his old Chinese stomping grounds to blogdai. He’s already proven by his speech that he considers Nepal to be an incompetent backwater of feudal insignificance, so why not chuck the whole thing and concentrate on organizing a golf tournament? Blogdai can envision the exchange at the U.S. embassy as Moriarty instructs his receptionist: “Tell the King to call back later, I’m working on my putting!”
Anyway, back to our pugnacious Prince of pulchritude. Paras was having quite the jovial time with reporters, ambassadors and generals during his foray on the links. Apparently the mood was temporarily broken when the entourage fell silent after Paras’s exclamation of “my driving prowess is good.” No word on which member of the party choked on their cocktail after this utterance.
Our Prince played a poor front nine, but rallied at the turn and posted quite a respectable score on the back nine. Blogdai has no way of confirming rumors that the struggling Prince commanded that Nepali artists be placed at each of the final nine holes in order to improve his accuracy.
So the makeover continues. Expect the new Paras to hire someone to beat-up bar patrons from now on.
