Downfall of Monarchy in Nepal
Once declared “The most peaceful country in the world”- Nepal, is now facing the extreme political crisis ever in its history. It dates back to the Maoist’s insurgency from 1996 to the Royal Massacre and ultimate downfall of monarchy from the country. Maoist, in the name of maintaining equality among the poor and the rich, started a digression of no reason, which resulted in the war among the Royal Nepal Army and the Maoist Army. Then after, it feels like somebody put an evil eye on our peace. When one thinks of the cause of this major disappointment, everybody laments on the day, June 1, 2001. ...view middle of the document...

Monarchy was the one which united the people in Nepal. King Birendra was the one who always rescued Nepal and Nepalese from evil foreign eyes. In fact, Nepal had never been in the prosperous condition than in during the reign of King Birendra, and his fall can only be attributed to his being loyal to his country. There were several speculations made on the Royal Massacre. Majority of the people speculated the crown prince Dipendra Bir Bikram Shah to be the murderer. Furthermore, the international news channel and newspapers also highlighted the murderer to be the then prince Dipendra Bir Bikram Shah. Those who speculated Dipendra to be the murderer explained the incident as a matter of family fight. One of the documentaries on You Tube explains the plot of Royal Massacre as, “This is the story of a forbidden love affair: A family tragedy and a national nightmare. Crown Prince Dipendra carefully planned and cold bloodedly executed a royal massacre.” (YouTube) Similarly, the main international headline in ABC News read:
“Crown Prince Dipendra shot and killed nine members of his family and himself. His parents apparently objected to his plans to marry local aristocrat Devyani Rana. They had reportedly threatened to disinherit him if he did so and there have been speculation that this conflict between love and duty is what caused his rampage.”
However, there is something not quite right in the agency reports regarding the mysterious deaths of the royal family of Nepal. First, there is the curious story that the crown prince, Dipendra, having massacred his entire family, then tried to kill himself. “He might have succeeded, except he contrived to shoot himself in the back of the head. This appears rather difficult to do, especially with an assault rifle. So then who shot him? And the latest story is that an Uzi assault rifle "exploded". Very strange, that an explosion should have precisely targeted all these people” (Rajiv Shrinivasan) writes Rajiv. It became clear that Dipendra was used as the major trump card to suppress the truth and his death would suddenly end the conflict too. Following this further, even majority of Nepalese are not in a state to believe that Dipendra was the murderer. They still respect the royal family and instead they have their own speculations saying either Maoist, who had almost taken the country to the situation of civil war, or Gyanendra Bir Bikram Shah, the younger brother of Birendra Bir Bikram Shah, to be the murderer (Wagle). Adding to this, there are some mysteries of foreign effect on the Royal Massacre. Whatever the speculations may be, the death of the Royal family is still a mystery. In the lament of people, there is a motif of contrast. There are several other incidents which caused the monarchy to end. Some of the causes are:

After the demise of the king, the Shah Dynasty had to be taken over by someone. There had to be a king to follow the democratic rule of the nation. Finally, Gyanendra Bir Bikram...
