Expert Answer:

The popular struggles and movements in Nepal and Bolivia took place at different times in different contexts. Though the movements had many similarities, it had some main differences too. These were:

  1. The movement in Nepal took place to establish democracy, while the struggle in Bolivia reflected people’s expectations of the elected democratic government.
  2. The popular struggle in Bolivia was about one specific unpopular decision taken by the government (privatization of water supply), while the struggle in Nepal was about changing the foundations of the country (monarchy to democracy) and its politics.
  3. The struggles of both the countries were successful; however their impact was felt at different levels.
