Representation of post earthquake Nepal

The question is of problem of representation. Nepal faced Earthquake on April 25, 2015 and major quake was followed by several smaller quakes and there are small earthquakes of Magnitude 4-5 almost each day. It was not massive nor was it a minor.

The post earthquake situation seems illusory as picture of Nepal created by both extremist is untrue or partially true. Here extremists means the NGO’s, INGO’s and Tourism entrepreneurs. The NGO”s and INGO’s are representing Nepal more than the devastation aiming to survive in the world of charity. This very image of Nepal is pitiful. They managed to circulate this sort of image around the world and managed to chase their dreams. This helped Nepal get sympathy from the people of world but it is sure that it in long term harms the country.

The other are travel business holders who are labeling their campaign as Nepal Tourism recovery! Strategies and Actions to counter the negative image of Nepal presented by first group of people but danger is that they are hiding the dark spots and telling the world that they should come Nepal to visit because it is safe. The earthquake did make lots of effects on the heritages of Nepali tourism. Still here are aftershocks each day, there are boards on world heritage sites saying danger zone, most of the hotels in the heart of Kathmandu are not labeled by experts if they are safe. One will have different picture of Kathmandu on the mind after sightseeing the world heritage sites of Kathmandu valley. It is nice that no major problems have arrived but if some calamity will occur, are our mechanisms and system able to cope with the situation. After the earthquake many foreigners came Nepal risking their life to help and rescue but for tourists who come Nepal on holiday the matter is different at present time.

It is wrong logic to say that tourists should come and visit Nepal to help local economy. They should think twice and take independent decision. Nepal is danger as well as safer at the same time. We hope things will start getting better once the monsoon will be over, the aftershocks stop. The major trekking routes like Annapurna circuit, Annapurna base camp, Everest base camp, Kanchenjunga base camp are doable but there are possible threats of landslides.  If there will be 5-6 Richter scale aftershocks with Kathmandu center that can cause disaster. Nepali people are slowly coming out of earthquake caused trauma and trying making life normal.

Think Twice and if you feel coming Nepal: You are welcome to visit Nepal. Choose activities and areas that are more fulfilling.
