Looking back at these developments, Sudheer Sharma argues that poverty, severance and oppression drove the Maoist rebellion, and despite its ultimate failure, it played a decisive part in the socio- political metamorphosis of Nepal. likewise, the relationship between the Maoists, the monarchy( Durbar) and the Indian establishment( Delhi) is absolutely critical to the understanding of the line of the changes.
