Competence at sports associations

If you meet a Nepali sports official, a standard line you will most likely hear from them is how no one with a shred of competence is willing to work in the sports sector. Thus as a great sacrifice to sport and country they must continue to serve as the guardians of their sport to protect it from leaches and infidels.

Sukuti! (Guess that would be the equivalent to ‘Bologna’ in Nepali)

Nepal has plenty of passionate and talented people who would be more than enthusiastic to help uplift sports in the country. If you don’t know any, then you probably have spent half your life inside the corner MoMo shop and the other half at Ranjana Cinema Hall. Basically you're living in the dark.

The dirty little secret is sports officials are terrified to bring in competent people into their associations. They know it may expose their own incompetence and could cause cracks in their well guarded fiefdoms. Therefore creating a dysfunctional sports organization suits them perfect, because that is exactly what will drive away the overachievers and protect their lands from invasion.

  1. I should be clear that there are quite a few competent people within the sports associations too. Unfortunately they are not given the opportunity to shine - basically for the same reasons mentioned above.

  2. Mirror Mirror !! show me the truth n bang!! that does it....dirty politics ...u find it everywhere in nepal...even game play as well...how often have we heard about a young talent with outstanding results in the nationals??a country with almost 27 million ppl can't find one guy who cud make a difference?? I dun buy that!! the fact is they won't let u do that!! one keeps struggling to be noticed...many pass on...opt for different fields...n by the time he makes his way to the team...uhoh!! just a few years left 2 find wrinkles in ur forehead!!...I personally have seen n met some amazing talents in swimming and cricket....who eventually 'took a pass',,,just bcuz they dint have one o those big magnets in the upper level to pull em up!!

  3. Beyond magnets, anyone with talent has better ways to spend life than working at a sports association where everyday you are putting out fires. Better to be a fireman.
