What seems obvious has been exposed. Scared by the recent movements in Nepal which could possibly throw Gyanendra to the ground, Nepalese Monarch has sought help from India. According to Times of India, a call was made on May 10 from the Narayanhity Palace to New Delhi. The Times writes that Jana Aastha weekly disclosed the information about the call recently.

King definitely has felt the heat and it is likely that he will be sacked by the people. Even if he is not sacked, he will have to live like ordinary citizens without any power bestowed on him. Moreover, the wrath of Nepalese would always pour on him. Day by day, he will be sidelined from the mainstream and consequently he might find happiness somewhere else other than Nepal.
It is a shameful act of Gyanendra to desire the throne despite the hatred spread among Nepalese against the monarch. Nobody wants him and still he does not feel it. Soon, he will be left with no power and still he wants to continue? He is better off going on exile as he will not have to face the wrath of Nepalese.
Do you think Gyanendra is ready for exile? If not, he might soon have to be….
