The future of Nepal

Will Nepal's new Maoist elite commit itself to genuine grass-roots development of the country or will the the new Maoist elite simply become the new "Rajas" (kings) of Nepal?

Will Nepal generate its own policies, or will it become a mere satellite of China?

At the moment, there are worrying indications on both the above concerns.
