Nepal had been surrounded by two major powers- India and China. India and Nepal had been sharing very historical and civilizational relations.
Within weeks of promulgating its first republican constitution Nepal has not just stepped into a new era domestically but also with its two giant neighbours, writes Shreya Paudel. In response, Nepal has signed a breakthrough treaty with China, moving away from the turbulent trade marriage with its southern neighbour for the first time since Delhi on its part says that goods are not able to go towards Nepal because Madheshi protesters are blocking the passage, but traders have highlighted that goods are not even entering Nepal from the entry points like Kakarbhitta which have not been affected by Madheshi protesters. The few trucks that are crossing the border are not enough and the Nepalese are rapidly running out of gas and petrol, leading to fuel rationing and fears that supplies will run out completely.
July 25, The visit underscores yet again the primacy of South Asia in the foreign policy calculus of the new government in New Delhi and comes nearly two months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi hosted the leaders of SAARC countries for his swearing-in ceremony and a month after Mrs Sushma Swaraj visited Dhaka.
Close and intimate ties Perhaps no two neighbours have such close and intimate ties, which are rooted in history and manifest in day-to-day existence in a thousand different ways. The facts and figures tell their own story, and evoke a rich tapestry of relations framed by trade and investment, culture and robust people-to-people contacts.
There are six million Nepalese working in India. And there are , Indians who have made Nepal their home. Nepalese can work in India without a work permit, open bank accounts and own property.
Open border has ensured an uninterrupted flow of flow of people between the two countries. Besides, there are 60 flights per week between the two countries. Twenty per cent of all tourists visiting Nepal are from India, and around 40 per cent of tourist flows to Nepal are through India. Interlinked economic destinies The imperatives of geography and history have resulted in an intertwining of the economic fortunes of the two neighbours. India accounts for 47 per cent of foreign direct investment in Nepal.
The trade treaty, which was revised in , has proved to be a pivotal point in economic relations between the two countries. There are about operating Indian ventures in Nepal which encompass diverse sectors, including manufacturing, services banking, insurance, dry port, education and telecom , power sector and tourism industries.
The importance of the meeting can be gauged from the fact that this will be the first joint commission meeting in 23 years and will encompass five clusters of issues, including I Political, security and border issues II Economic cooperation and infrastructure III Trade and transit IV Power and water resources V Culture, education and media. Signalling the importance of the talks and given a wide array of issues on the table, the minister will be accompanied by officials from the ministries of external affairs, power, water resources, commerce, road transport, railways, human resources development, Culture.
Given the scope of the joint commission, one can safely say that the entire spectrum of bilateral issues will be discussed at the talks. Issues relating to revision of the Treaty of Peace and Friendship, which forms the bedrock of the India-Nepal relations, are expected to figure in the discussions.
The treaty is seen as unfair by some sections of the Nepalese political establishment, a charge denied by India, but New Delhi has indicated its willingness to be receptive to concrete suggestions from the Nepalese side. Deepening security and counter-terror cooperation is another important priority for India.
In this context, the security agencies of the two countries have been proactively cooperating across a wide swathe of areas, including tackling illicit smuggling, arms-trafficking and fake currency. Given porous borders and reports of militants using the India-Nepal border as a conduit, the security dimension of the relationship is set to bolstered in days to come. Hydropower: Co-creating prosperity Most important, the focus will be on fructifying the potential of hydropower cooperation, which has remained untapped largely due to differing perceptions.
At the talks, India is hoping to clinch a new power agreement that open new vistas of win-win opportunities in this sector. Nepal, according to experts, have 40, MW of hydel power that has been found to be technically and financially viable. The total hydel potential is estimated to be 80, MW.

The development partnership spans a wide arc, with India building highways, bridges, optical fibre links, medical colleges, trauma centres, polytechnics, schools, hospitals and health centres. For river training and embankment construction, the Indian government has been generous with funds and expertise for strengthening and extension of embankments along Lalbakeya, Bagmati and Kamla rivers.

India has maintained a well-thought out policy of keeping away from internal affairs of Nepal, but in the spirit of friendship has consistently advocated an inclusive political process to establish durable peace and stability in the Himalayan state, which is navigating its journey towards modernity and national renewal on its own terms. The prime ministerial visit, when it happens, could be a defining moment in pitching the India-Nepal relation onto a higher trajectory and open up numerous new vistas of multifarious win-win opportunities, bringing the two neighbours closer in web of co-prosperity.
