मेरो प्रश्न !!!!!

आफ्नै स्वार्थ मात्रै हेर्ने बानी रोक्न मिल्दैन कि ?
बिरामी ती आमाको भार मिली बोक्न मिल्दैन कि?

एमाले र कांग्रेस भन्छन सरकार हामी चलाऊँछौ !!
मशाल बोकी माओवादी भन्छ सरकार ढलाउँछौ !!
चलाऊने र ढलाउने यो खेल रोक्न मिल्दैन कि ?
बिरामी ती आमाको भार मिली बोक्न मिल्दैन कि?

एक मधेश एक प्रदेश कुर्लदैछ फोरम पनि !!
बिभेदहरु जन्मदैछन जात, धर्म, क्षेत्र बनी !!
नेपालीमै भाँजो हाल्ने काम रोक्न मिल्दैन कि ?
बिरामी ती आमाको भार मिली बोक्न मिल्दैन कि?

राप्रपाको उही पारा बाँकी भाका दल नि त्यस्तै!!
सत्ताको नै लोभमा परि यताउती धाउन ब्यस्तै !!
सत्ताको यो लुछाचुँडी अझै रोक्न मिल्दैन कि ?
बिरामी ती आमाको भार मिली बोक्न मिल्दैन कि?

हामी जनता चेतनशिल किन भन्छौ आँफैलाई !!
मौन नै छौ अझै पनि धेरै चोटि घात पाइ!!!
बुझेर नि अबुझ बन्ने नाटक रोक्न मिल्दैन कि ?
बिरामी ती आमाको भार मिली बोक्न मिल्दैन कि ?

गजल-- आव्हान !!

बिकासको मुल अब फुट्नु पर्छ भन्छु म त !!
गाउँ शहर लेक बेशी जुट्नु पर्छ भन्छु म त !!

कती तोड्छौ भत्किएको घरलाई अझै तिमी,
बन्द हड्ताल पुग्यो अब छुट्नु पर्छ भन्छु म त !!

चुहिने त्यो घरको छानो टाल्नलाई मिलिजुली,
भाईचाराको गिटी पनि,कुट्नु पर्छ भन्छु म त!!

एकताको उदाहरण बनाउन यै देशलाई ,
अनेकताको बाँध अब,टुट्नु पर्छ भन्छु म त !!

राम्रो गरे साथ दिउँ, गलत गरे खबरदारी,
जागरुक भै अब सबै उठ्नु पर्छ भन्छु म त !!

गजल-- तिम्रो कसम!!!!!


टाढा जान्छु भन्छौ बाटो,छेक्ने छैन तिम्रो कसम!!
फेरी तिम्रो मनको दैलो, टेक्ने छैन तिम्रो कसम!!

बाँचिदिन्छु यो जिन्दगी,अन्जान बनी सधैं भरी,
देखे पनि तिमीलाई, देख्ने छैन तिम्रो कसम !!

भावनामा डुबाउला, बहकेला त्यो मन फेरि,
तिम्रो मुटु छुने गजल, लेख्ने छैन तिम्रो कसम!!

रोएको छ यो मन मेरो,तिम्रो पनि उस्तै होला,
आशुले नै तर पीडा, सेक्ने छैन तिम्रो कसम!!

खुशी चाहें दु:ख पाएँ, चेतिसकें अब मैले,
त्यै दल्दलमा फेरी मुटु,फेक्ने छैन तिम्रो कसम !!

गीत----- तिमी!!!!!

कल्पनामा आँफैभित्र मात्तिएकी फूल तिमी !!
भँवराको हुल देखी आत्तिएकी फूल तिमी !!

बैश चढ्यो मात बढ्यो, सुन्दरताले बास पायो !!
चोखो तिम्रो फुलवारीमा, नयाँ मधुमास छायो !!
भरिएको जवानीले, मात्तिएकी फुल तिमी !!
पोखिन्छ कि मिठो रस, आत्तिएकी फूल तिमी !!

रीत न हो, वैली झर्‍यो, मगमगाउँदो फूल पनि !!
बिझायो कि उदासी त्यो, चोट दिने शूल बनी !!
अझै पनि अबुझ बनी, मात्तिएकी फूल तिमी !!
ढल्किएको बैश सम्झी, आत्तिएकी फूल तिमी !!

तिम्रो साथ याद आयो!!!!!!

ठेश लागि लड्न लाग्दा, तिम्रो साथ याद आयो !!
निदरी नै टाढा भाग्दा , तिम्रो साथ याद आयो !!

दिन रात एकै सरी, याद साँची बिताएका ,
आफु सँगै रात जाग्दा, तिम्रो साथ याद आयो !!

साथ हुँदा सयौ कोश, लाग्थ्यो के नै हो र भनी,
दुई पाइलामै आज थाक्दा, तिम्रो साथ याद आयो !!

चन्चले यो मन पनि, बरालिन्छ त्यसै त्यसै ,
भावनाले सिमा नाघ्दा, तिम्रो साथ याद आयो !!

तिमी बिना यो जिन्दगी ,कसरी खै सोच्नु यहाँ,
औशिले नि जुन माग्दा, तिम्रो साथ याद आयो !!

गजल - विकल्प छैन!!!!

तिमी हुनुको विकल्प छैन !!
सम्झी रुनुको विकल्प छैन !!

मानशपटमा छाइ रहने त्यो,
छुनु मुनुको विकल्प छैन!!

भन्थ्यौ साथै हुन्छु हर्दम् ,
मुटु छुनुको विकल्प छैन !!

यादमा बहेका ति आशुले नै,
पिडा धुनुको विकल्प छैन!!

केही टुक्रा टाक्री हरु Part 3

काम उस्तै नाम मात्रै,फेरे देश बन्दैन हजुर !!
मुखले मात्रै संबिधान ,केरे देश बन्दैन हजुर !!
काला गए गोरा आए, आफ्नो स्वार्थ पुरा गरे,
मुकदर्शक बनी रमिता, हेरे देश बन्दैन हजुर !!
---------------------------------

गल्ती हुन्छ मानवबाटै, सुधारेर अघी बढौ !!
ठप्प बिकासका मार्ग, उघारेर अघी बढौ !!
जिन्दाबाद-मुर्दाबाद त्यागी सबै एक बनी-
फर्फराउने झन्डा हाम्रो, उचालेर अघी बढौ!!

केही टुक्रा टाक्री हरु Part 2!!

क्षितिजपारी त्यो गाउँको बाटो भेटिएन !!
यो शहरमा खोजे आफ्नो माटो भेटिएन !!
चस्स किन दुख्यो भनी मुटु छामी हेरे ,
एउटा थियो तर अर्को पाटो भेटिएन !!

-----------------------------
एक्लै हिडी बिरानीमा, देश भेट्न सम्भव हुन्न !!
रक्तनदी जती बहाउ ,प्यास मेट्न सम्भव हुन्न!!
एक हातले ताली कतै बजेको सुनेका छौ तिम्ले,
दुई हात नभै सारङ्गिको, तार रेट्न सम्भव हुन्न!!

----------------------------------
हरा'को त्यो गाउँको बाटो खोजौ अब मिलीजुली !!
वैमनस्यता त्यागी भाईचारा रोजौ अब मिलिजुली !!
भर पर्यौ सधैं तिन्कै बदलामा बस धोका पायौ,
निमुखा भै कती बस्नु यहाँ सोचौ अब मिलिजुली!!

----------------------------------

केही टुक्रा टाक्री हरु Part 1!!

बाढी मेरो मनमा आउँदा, त्यो तन-मनमा हल्चल देखे !!
चुल्बुले त्यो चुरा कस्तो, हर छन्छनमा हल्चल देखे !!
कस्तो यो नाता हाम्रो, भेउ कुनै पाईन मैले ,
छुरा धस्दा यो मुटुमा, त्यो धड्कनमा हल्चल देखे !!

------------------------------------------

बन्धन सबै तोडी आउ डर किन मान्छेउ!!
प्रीतको बिउ गोडी आउ डर किन मान्छेउ!!
लक्ष्य हाम्रो एउटै रै'छ बाटो किन फरक,
पाइला यतै मोडी आउ डर किन मान्छेउ!!

गजल--- यसरी बन्छ गजल

मुटु भरी वेदना ले , आशु झार्दा गजल बन्छ !!
यो मनले त्यो मनमा, डेरा सार्दा गजल बन्छ !!

सुख दु:ख सँगम जीवन, भन्छन भन्ने हरु तर ,
दु:खरुपी तुवाँलोले, सुख बार्दा गजल बन्छ !!

अन्धकारमै हराएर, सारा जीवन जिउँदा जिउँदै,
उजेलिमा रम्ने झिनो, आश मार्दा गजल बन्छ !!

कि त पढि कि त परी , जानिन्छ रे भन्छन यहाँ ,
पिडासङ्गै जीवन अझै, सुनझै खार्दा गजल बन्छ !

जीवन भन्नु जुवा ठानी,खुशी सबै दाउमा राखी,
'जितु'ले नै जिन्दगीको, बाजी हार्दा गजल बन्छ !!

मेरो बाल्यकालको साथी !

"जन्मिदा एक्लै, मर्दा नि एक्लै", ध्रुवसत्य कुरा, तर जिन्दगीको यात्रामा कयन साथहरु साथी बन्छन, कयन हातहरु साथ छोड्छन । यो क्रम चलिरहन्छ, जिन्दगीको यात्रा जो चल्नु छ !! कुनै साथ यस्ता हुन्छन जुन लामो समयसम्म चल्छन तर हामी याद गर्न चाहन्नौ, अनी कुनै यस्ता हुन्छन जुन क्षणिक हुन्छन तर हरपल सम्झनामा आइरहन्छन !!

कथा जस्तो लागे पनि यो कुनै कथा होइन, मेरो भावना अनी त्यो बाल्यकालको साथीको सम्झना हो जुन मेरो मनमा हर्दम आइरहन्छ, मानसपटमा छाइरहन्छ । त्यही सम्झनाहरुलाई त्यन्द्रा त्यान्द्रा बुनेर यो लेख्दैछु !

गाउँले परीबेशमा हुर्किएको म सानोमा सार्है नै लजालु स्वभावको थिए । कसै सँग नि खुलेर कुरा नगर्ने, केवल आफ्नो काममा मात्र ध्यान दिने, बाँकी दुनियाँ बिरानो थियो मेरो लागि ।चार बर्षको हुँदा पनि म स्कुल भनेपछी डराउँथे,घरबाट अंकल ले जती भने नि म कहिल्यै स्कुल गईन रे । एक दिन अंकल ले मलाई काँधमा राखेर स्कुल छोडेर आउनुभएछ, जुन दिन पस्चात मैले एउटा क्लास नि छोडेन रे !! ५ सम्मको मेरो पढाई गाउँकै स्कुलमा भएको हो ।

म त्यतिबेला कक्षा २ मा पढ्थे, मेरै गाउँको स्कुलमा ।त्यतिबेला "प्रभाते स्कुल"(MORNING SCHOOL) चल्दै थियो ! प्रभाते स्कुल बिहान ७ बजे सुरु हुन्थ्यो र १ बजे सकिन्थ्यो जुन हामी एकदमै मन पराउँथ्यौ, DAY SCHOOL को तुलनामा । हामीहरु BREAK TIME को लागि 'अन्नी'(TIFFIN) लगेर जान्थ्यौ घर बाटै।

एक दिन एक जना नयाँ मान्छे हाम्रो क्लासमा आयो, मैले ज्यादा ध्यान दिएन, किन मैले कारण माथि नै लेखिसकेको छु । अरुले कुरा गरेको सुन्दा खेरी उ OVERSEER को छोरा भएको थाहा पाए, त्यो OVERSEER हाम्रो गाउँमा बन्न लागेको सिचाइ नहरको कामले केही दिनका लागि मेरो गाउँको पाहुना रहेछ । BREAK TIME भयो र म पनि सबै झै आफ्नो 'अन्नी'तिर लागे, मुवाको हातबाट बनेको मीठो रोटी । एक जना साथी जहिले पनि म संगै नास्ता गर्थ्यो किनकी मेरो 'अन्नी' उस्को तुलनामा जहिले नि मिठो हुने गर्थ्यो । त्यो दिन त्यो नयाँ साथी हामी भए तिरै आयो शायद साथ खोजिरहेको थियो । उस्ले पनि TIFFIN बोकेको थियो जुन हाम्रो भन्दा नि राम्रो थियो। आफ्नो TIFFIN बाट केही मलाई दियो उस्ले र भन्यो "आजदेखी हामी साथी साथी है !" म संगै भएको साथीले 'हुन्छ भन' भनेर भन्यो, जस्मा उस्को स्वार्थ लुकेको थियो, राम्रो TIFFIN पाउने । तर म मुकदर्शक भएर उभिरहे, बोली फुट्नु भन्दा अघी नै क्लास सुरुको जनाउ घन्टी बज्यो, दगुरियो क्लास तिरै।

अर्को दिन मैले उस्लाई खोजे, किनकी मलाई उस्को प्रश्नको जवाफ दिनु थियो, उ सँग दिगो मित्रताको साईनो गास्नु थियो। मेरो खोजाइ ब्यर्थ भयो किनकी उ त्यसपछी मेरो स्कुलमा कहिल्यै देखिएन, भेटिएन ।

यती धेरै बर्ष बितिसकेका छन, समयले लामो फड्को मारिसकेको छ । उ कता छ मलाई केही थाहा छैन, उस्लाई यो कुरा याद छ कि छैन भन्ने नि मेसो छैन मलाई । तर पनि उस्का ती निस्चल शब्दहरु अझै नि कानमा गुन्जिरहन्छन । उस्को त्यो साथीत्व हर घडी याद आउँछ ।

करीब ३० जना मध्य उस्ले मेरो साथ नै किन चुन्यो, यस्को जवाफ म सँग छैन, तर आज म उस्लाई जवाफ दिन चाहन्छु दुनियाँलाई साक्षी मानेर , "हुन्छ !! हामी साथी साथी, युगौ युग सम्म लाई!!"

गजल--बुवाको मुख हेर्ने दिन बिशेष


जन्म दियौ प्यारी आमा, कर्म दियौ बाबा तिम्ले!!
सुख सुम्पी हामीलाई, दु:ख लियौ बाबा तिम्ले!!

गार्हो हुन्छ सुख लत्याई, सधैँ दु:ख अँगाल्नलाई,
पीडा भुली हाँसी हाँसी, आँशु पियौ बाबा तिम्ले!!

जिन्दगीको यात्रा सहज, बनाउन सन्ततिको,
फुल रोप्न बाटैभरी, नङ्ग्रा खियौ बाबा तिम्ले!!

ठुला ठुला सपना र,  आशाहरु सजाएर,
पहिल्याउनु सुमार्ग नै, भन्या' थियौ बाबा तिम्ले!!

सेवा गर्छु बाबा आमा, ऋणी भएँ युगौसम्म,
ज्युँनु जति यहाँ दुखी, जीवन जियौ बाबा तिम्ले!!



((आफ्नो सन्तानको खुशीको लागि दिनोरात खट्ने सम्पूर्ण मातापिताहरु प्रती समर्पित यो गजल !!!))

'नयाँ नेपाल' र 'गणतन्त्र'

निर्दोश जनको रक्तनदी,
बहन यदि रुक्दैन भने !
चुलिएको अपराधको शिर,
कानूनसामु झुक्दैन भने!
दुखी मेरा आफन्तको,
आँशु यदि सुक्दैन भने!

पुरानोमै खुशी थिएँ,
'नयाँ नेपाल' चाहिदैन!
जन मर्म कुल्ची हिंड्ने,
'गणतन्त्र'चाहिदैन!!

जनताबाटै चुनिएकाहरु.
कुर्सी मोहमा फस्छन् भने !
श्रीखण्डको आडमा पालीई,
बिशालु भई डस्छन् भने !
अघिल्तिर मिठो बोली,
पिठ्युमा छुरा धस्छन् भने !

पुरानोमै खुशी थिएँ,
'नयाँ नेपाल' चाहिदैन!
जन मर्म कुल्ची हिंड्ने,
'गणतन्त्र'चाहिदैन!!

हरेक साँझ कोइली वनमा,
विरह गीत गाउँछ भने !
हत्या, हिंसा, बन्द हड्ताल,
अझै प्रशय पाउँछ भने !!
अशान्तिको त्रास अझै,
हर धड्कनमा छाउँछ भने!

पुरानोमै खुशी थिएँ,
'नयाँ नेपाल' चाहिदैन!
जन मर्म कुल्ची हिंड्ने,
'गणतन्त्र'चाहिदैन!!

बिसंगती कुरितिले,
नेटो यदि काट्दैनन् भने !
जंगे पिल्लर वरै सर्दा,
बोल्न कोही आँट्दैनन् भने !
एउटै घरका दाजुभाई,
प्रेम सद्भाव साट्दैनन् भने!

पुरानोमै खुशी थिएँ,
'नयाँ नेपाल' चाहिदैन!
जन मर्म कुल्ची हिंड्ने,
'गणतन्त्र'चाहिदैन!!

तेरो मेरो हैन हाम्रो,
हर नेपाली सोच्दैन भने !
बिखन्डनमा डोरिंदा देश,
अखन्डता रोज्दैन भने !
विकास ठप्प देख्दा देख्दै,
विकल्प केइ खोज्दैन भने !

पुरानोमै खुशी थिएँ,
'नयाँ नेपाल' चाहिदैन!
जन मर्म कुल्ची हिंड्ने,
'गणतन्त्र'चाहिदैन!!


मेची दुख्दा महाकाली,
सुसाएर रुन्न भने ।
हिमाल रुँदा तराई पहाड,
कसैको मन छुन्न भने ।
नेपालीको सन्तान भन्दा,
छाती ठुलो हुन्न भने ।

पुरानोमै खुशी थिएँ,
'नयाँ नेपाल' चाहिदैन!
जन मर्म कुल्ची हिंड्ने,
'गणतन्त्र'चाहिदैन!!

म यो जाति तँ त्यो जाति,
मेरो साथी सोच्छ भने ।
टुक्रिएको नेपाल भित्र,
आफ्नो राज्य खोज्छ भने ।
भाईचाराको कुम्लो फाली,
दुश्मनिको भारी बोक्छ भने ।


पुरानोमै खुशी थिएँ,
'नयाँ नेपाल' चाहिदैन!
जन मर्म कुल्ची हिंड्ने,
'गणतन्त्र'चाहिदैन!!

एउटा भिन्न प्रयास !!

हरियो चुरा मिठो छुरा मुटुभित्र धस्ने को हौ !!
रातो सारी मन उघारी सुटुक्क लौ पस्ने को हौ !!


त्यसै सुन्दर तिमी सानी मिथ्या श्रिंगार किन,
सुन्को बाली ओठ्मा लाली लोभ्याउन घस्ने को हौ!!

थाहा छैन किन तिम्लाई मेरै गाउँ प्यारो लाग्यो,
रेशमी केश परीको देश छाडि यतै खस्ने को हौ !!


भेट्या थे'न आज सम्म मनमहल सजाउने कोइ,
रुपकी रानी प्रेमकी खानि यो दिलैमा बस्ने को हौ!!

उराठलाग्दो यो जीवनमा प्रेमिल मधुमास ल्याइ,
मुहार गोरो प्रितको डोरो 'जितु'सँग कस्ने को हौ!!

तिम्रै नाममा !!!

केही लेख्न मन लाग्यो आज तिम्रो नाममा !!
खबर कस्ले पुर्याउला तिमी बस्ने ठाममा !!

भावना यी बाढी बनी उर्लिन्छन यो मनमा,
पोखेर ती मनका कुरा राखे बन्द खाममा!!

नशा यो कस्तो तिम्रो लठ्ठै बनायो मलाई,
भेटे छैन यस्तो मात मैले पिउने जाममा!!

तिमी पाए पुग्छ मलाई अरु केही चाहिदैन,
भाकेको छु तिम्रै नाम भेटे जती थाममा !!

गजल - कोइ छ कि ?

मनको ढोका खोलेको छु, आउने कोइ छ कि !!

जुगौ जुगको चोखो माया, लाउने कोइ छ कि !!

कती ज्युँनु विरहमा, यहाँ पीडा लुकाइ ,
सँगै मिली प्रितीका गीत, गाउने कोइ छ कि !!

वेदनाको सागर हो यो, दुई दिने चोला,
खुशी बनी यो जीवनमा, छाउने कोइ छ कि !!

बरालिन्छ यो मन सधैं, के के खोज्छ कुन्नी,
मेरो माया आफ्नो मनमा, सजाउने कोइ छ कि !!

दागबत्ती कुरिरा'को, चिता भयो जीवन,
अमृत छरी यही लाश, ब्युँताउने कोइ छ कि !!

MISSION GULF…WHAT I FELT

I am writing these things based on my almost one year residence in United Arab Emirates (UAE)

When I was about to complete my Bachelors, random feelings used to come in my mind. I was worried about my Carrier, my family and my future and these feelings were not only mine but most of my friends who were about to complete their studies and step in their professional life. Market needs the experienced ones and there is lack of opportunities for the FRESHERS especially for them who lack recommendations. So the hard work of four or three years of Bachelors is always in trouble and most of the students are always in dilemma, “WHAT NEXT?”

But my plan was certain and I was mentally prepared to enter the Gulf. Discussions happen in fresh graduates about the future plan. In the same discussion I said, “I am planning for Dubai”. Some friends took it as a joke and told me, “Why don’t you try for Australia, UK, Canada or USA?” I was aware of the mentioned countries and also the life of students there. But their question didn’t astonish me because the concept towards GULF is not good in our society. Even till the date, most of people think that only unqualified persons are made for GULF region and qualified ones should try for Europe and America!!

UAE has reached in a level of all the developed countries amazing the world in last few years. Its fast growing economy and lots of amazing projects is attracting many people around the World towards it. So now it is time to eradicate the misconception of Gulf. This is not a country for living a long life but a place for making money. Earn money here and invest in your country. That will develop your country also. GULF is not a place for uneducated and ruined ones but other professionals can also make it their target.

I entered UAE in the month of July when the thermometer was showing about 50 Degree Celsius in this country. I was in Visit Visa and was about to start my carrier. I faced different interviews and took lessions from each. Everyone was seeking GULF EXPERIENCE and so I lost some good opportunities. Anyhow I found a job and started working. I am still in confusion what this GULF EXPERIENCE means? Is it whether staying in GULF or working in the related field in GULF? If I will get the exact answer I will let you know.

Beginning days were not quite good for me. This was not because of new place and new people. It was because of the concept of other nationals here towards Nepal. They had lots of misconceptions about Nepal. It is a bitter reality that Nepal in their concept is “Country of Labourers”. This is because most of Nepalese here are labourers and only a few are in good positions. Even certain people have a misconception that Nepal is a part of India. I can’t change the mentality of all but I have changed the mentality of the persons whom I am in contact with. Our society is not aware of the fact that there are lots of opportunities for educated ones and professionals here.

‘’One fact disheartens me. When a non-Nepalese speaks against our nation, most of us encourage him to speak more and more instead of protesting. This is due to lack of knowledge about own country. We have lots of things that we are proud of. If you can’t protest then you don’t have right to say “I am a Nepalese”. We have a history of independency. When our two big neighbor countries were ruled by British, we had a fragrance of independency spread all over Nepal. There is a huge contribution of Nepalese soldiers in waving the flag of peace all over the World. Nepalese are renowned for these words: calm, sincere, peace loving and brave. History is evidence that Nepalese do not interfere in other’s matters and fear not to cut the heads of those who interfere in their matters (AAI LAAGNE MAATHI JAAI LAAGNE). So non-Nepalese do not dare to cross the boundary of our patience.

Nepal is Birthplace of Gautam Buddha, Sita, Genius King Janak, home of 8 among top ten mountains of the World including MOUNT EVEREST, the Hat of Nepal. We are second largest in water resources after Brazil. Nepal dwells variety of animals and plants. Also we have variety of cultures and languages in a small. We can say Nepal a complete package that God has sent for us and we are proud to be Nepali. ‘’

Mentioned above are the things we should at least know about our nation.

Suggestions for those who are planning for abroad:

If you will chose UAE or any Gulf country for your working area before trying for Masters, there are several benefits. First one is the international experience which most countries seek while providing Visa. Second, you will have money in your hands and you will not need to depend upon your family for investing the money for Masters. Third, if you get a job in your related field in Gulf, you will, of course, get a good job in next country where you want to study only because of this experience. These are the main advantages. Also you will be able to cope up with the professional life.

Suggestions for those who are helpless to come for working in GULF:

If you want a good job and a good salary, then Computer Knowledge is most. Also knowledge of English, Hindi and if possible Arabic is needed. Before you leave your country, be sure for what work you are hired for. I have seen many workers who have invested a huge amount and are paid a low salary with different work. They cannot protest here and can’t even return back as they are drowned in a debt that they invested while entering Dubai. To regret and face whatever comes in their way becomes their life here. It becomes a Golden jail for them which seems gorgeous from outside but the inner reality is different.

People work really hard for earning money. I have seen many people who hesitate to spend a single Dirham for their good health and good life. Accommodation is very much expensive here and many people share a single room (A normal room includes 10-20 persons). The family members and other neighbors see the earned money only but not that hard work and the pain of the person while earning that money. This is not only the reality of our nationals but also of other nationals.

Now the condition of our country is propelling persons to leave the country. But while leaving country keep yourself well prepared. Otherwise you will have to suffer a lot. Take this out of mind that if you are not satisfied with the company you are hired by, you will change another company(You will have permission if NOC(No Objection Certificate/Letter) is provided to you which is a rare chance). Because once you sign the contract, you will have to pay for breaching the contract. You can be BANNED for 6 months or 1 year if you breach the contract. You are not allowed to work in multiple companies(PART TIME) and also Overtime(OT) is not provided by all the companies. So dig out all the necesaary details of your destination before sailing your dream ship to GULF.

I have heard there are lots of Nepalese Societies here that are made for welfare of Nepalese workers here. But I am not in contact with even a member of those societies. May be I am new to UAE and so I could not meet them. Proper trainings and classes should be given to them to cope up with the circumstances that happen here. It is their duty to make aware who are willing to step GULF and help the ones who are working here.

Last but not least, it is a fact that when you are out of your country you miss it most. But life is uncertain and we need to cope with different circumstances in life. Gulf life has made me feel I can survive in any other place wherever it may be. This experience will certainly help me in my upcoming days.

गजल....मुर्खता

जिन्दगी को गोरेटोमा अनायासै हराइ रहे
दु:खको बाटो रोजे हर्दम् सुख पर सराई रहे

कठीन पलमा साथ दिनु धर्म आफ्नो सम्झी
आफु डुबे अरु लाई खोला पारी तराइ रहे

मुर्खता थियो मेरो अरुको लागी राम्रो सोच्नु
अरुलाई माथि पार्न आफु लाई झराइ रहे

स्वार्थी यो दुनियाँमा भेटिन कोइ दु:ख पर्दा
आफन्तको नजरमा विडम्बना पराई रहे

निरासाको जिन्दगी जिउनु गार्हो हुंदो रै'छ
रित्तिएको मुटु पनि आसले नै भराइ रहे

गजल -- मैले सोचेको मेरो देश !!

मैले सोचेको मेरो देशमा हत्या हिंसा हुन्न साथी
मैले खोजेको मेरो देशमा कोही आमा रुन्न साथी

कोइलिको मिठो गीत गुन्जिन्छ बनैभरी मनैभरी
मैले रोजेको मेरो देशमा अशान्ती ले छुन्न साथी

गिद्दे नजर राख्ने हरु होसियार भई बस्नु तिमी
मैले सोचेको मेरो देशमा पाउन्न जालो बुन्न साथी

एकताको उदाहरण बनी यो चिनिने छ दुनियाँमा
मैले खोजेको मेरो देशमा कुनै फाटो हुन्न साथी

हिमाल पहाड तराई मेरो क्षेत्रियताको बिभेद हुन्न
मैले सोचेको 'नेपाल'को थाले स्वप्न उन्न साथी

गजल दोहोरी !!

Jiten: घर नगिचैको बरको त्यो रुख ढलेको देखे
सपनिमा हिजो आफ्नै चिता जलेको देखे

Pradeep:किन यस्तो निरासाको भुमरिमा साथी तिमी
हतास भई आज तिमी आँफै भित्र गलेको देखे

Jiten: विरक्तिन्छु साथी म घरको त्यो स्थिती देखी
सुन्दर मेरो फुलबारिमा बिशालु फल फलेको देखे

Ravi: इमान् जमान् मरिसक्यो धर्म भ्रस्ट भएपछि
बेइमानीको त कालो बजार नै चलेको देखें ।।

Jiten: खोक्छन अझै देश जनताको लागि लड्दै छौ
राष्ट्रभक्तिको खोक्रो चन्दन तिनैले नै दलेको देखे

Pradeep: आफ्नै सन्तानले आगो लगाए विवशतामा रुन्छिन्
भित्र भित्रै नेपाल आमा डढेलो सरि बलेको देखेँ !

Jiten: चुनिनु अघी ठुला ठुला आश्वासन दिने यिनले
छेपारो झै रङ फेरी जनता अझै छलेको देखे

Ravi: स्वार्थ आफ्नो सोझ्याएर महल ठडाउन भ्याए,
रगतको भेल तेल सरी नेपालीलाई मलेको देखेँ !

Jiten: कुकुरको पुच्छर १२ बर्षमा नि बाङगै हुन्छ था'छ
अझै धुलो छर्न "जन सर्वोच्चता' ओकलेको देखे

गजल --- परदेशीको ब्यथा

मन त छैन बिदेशमा, खुन पसिना बगाउने !

आफ्नो घर उजाड राखी, पराइ महल सजाउने !



आफन्त म खोजुँ कहाँ, पराईहरु माझबाट,
भेटिएन कोही पनि, मनको मीत लगाउने !



धेरै भयो स्वदेशबाट, खबर केही आ'को छैन,
सुनाउ साथी केही शब्द, देशको माया जगाउने !



बाध्यताले आफ्नो माटो, छोडी आएँ पराइ मुलुक,
दिन गन्दै बसेको छु, आफ्नै ठाउँ फर्काउने !


गजल --- के पायौ ??

आफ्नै भाई निर्ममताले मारेर के पायौ
दु:खको भारी जनता माथि सारेर के पायौ

खुशी होलाउ आज तिमी सत्ताको मातमा
देखावटी खोक्रो जीत हारेर के पायौ

आश्वासन चर्का भाषण सत्ता पुग्ने सिढी थिय
बिकासको मार्ग पर सारेर के पायौ

भाईचारा भन्ने शब्द एकदेशमा सिमित रह्यो
भाई भाई बीचको नाता बारेर के पायौ

भन्थ्यौ तिमी यो देशलाई स्वर्गसरी बनाउनेछौ
स्वर्ग थियो नर्क तिम्ले पारेर के पायौ

शान्ती कैले आउँछ भनी अन्योलमा छ जीवन
संविधान लेखने मिती टारेर के पायौ

गजल -- कहाँ सक्छु ??

वैलिएको फूल हुँ म, सुवास कहाँ छर्न सक्छु ।
एकफेर त मरी सकें, फेरी कहाँ मर्न सक्छु ।

माया बिना रित्तिएको, धेरै भयो मेरो मुटु
महँगो रे सुने जब, सोचें कहाँ भर्न सक्छु

सुखमा त साथ दिने, साथी भेटें कति कति
जीवन तर दु:खसागर, एक्लै कहाँ तर्न सक्छु

छोटो जीवन लामो यात्रा, धेरै भोगें धेरै देखें
आत्मिय हुँ भन्छौ तिमी, भर कहाँ पर्न सक्छु


भयो अब चाहिदैन यो शहरको बसाईँ पुग्यो

क्षितिजपारी त्यो गाउँमा, डेरा कहाँ सर्न सक्छु ।


गजल !! आमा !!

AN EXPERIENCE IN DUBAI

Nobody inherits religion, cast and many other differentiations that are made by us, so called “HUMANS” of this world. When we step in this world, then we are categorized into certain borders, religions and other differentiations that make a barrier between us. In today’s world, known as Global Village, still there are barriers that dishearten us as we are forced to do the things we don’t want and not allowed to do what we want.

There is a saying “Children are gifts of God”. This is because of their innocence, purity, virtuousness. They are not aware of this aberrant world. As far as I think hardly there are people who hate children. Their one smile makes you get rid of thousand tensions.

You may be confused why I am talking like this. Let me eradicate your confusion.

After my office hours I need to take a public bus to get to my residence. It takes almost one hour to reach my residence provided that there is not a huge traffic jam. This is my daily schedule.

Yesterday (14th March 2009) I boarded the bus and took a seat that was just behind Ladies’ seat area. I was busy listening songs not caring what is happening around me. After a while I was attracted by a cute child with a smile in her face. She must be between her second or third year of birth. I wanted to play with her but was helpless as she was with her mother with “Burka” (traditional dress that Muslim Women wear). I could not stop myself as she was inviting me to play with her with a cute smile. Her invitation forced me to play with her symbolically like wagging hand, blinking eyes, making comic facial expressions. She tried to imitate my expressions with a huge smile in her face. There was a border between us, a glass that separates ladies and gents section. I thought it is nothing, the main barrier is the barrier created by we humans, “The barrier of Religion”. I wanted to hug her, lift her and play with her. But…….. Her mother was noticing the things going on there. She was trying to keep her child apart from me. But anyhow she was fighting with her mother to have a look at me. She was innocent and her heart was no doubt pure. But I understood the situation and changed my seat. I don’t say it is the fault of her mother. All this is the fault of us, the most intelligent creature of this World.

While I was facing the situation, I was reminding a story “Mero Sano Saathi”(My Little Friend”) which I have read while I was in school. I don’t remember the name of the writer (May be Manjul) and the class.

गजल -- आमाको मुख हेर्ने दिन बिशेष !!

गुम्सिएका मनका भाव, पोखेर यो गजल लेखें !
तिम्रो माया यो छातीमा, रोपेर यो गजल लेखें !

चाह छैन मन्दिर-मस्जिद, चहारेर बस्ने मलाई,
मेरी आमा तिम्रै पाउ, ढोगेर यो गजल लेखें !

मेरो लागि कति दु:ख सहेकी छौ मलाई था'छ,
के सकुँला ऋण तिर्न ? सोचेर यो गजल लेखें !

सम्झन्छु म पुराना दिन, रसाउँछन् यी आँखाहरु,
परेलिको डिलमा बाँध, बाँधेर यो गजल लेखें !

तिमी छैनौ ब्यर्थ छन् यी, दुनियाँका खुशी सारा,
तिम्रै नाम तिम्रै मन्त्र, जपेर यो गजल लेखें !

गजल -- तिम्रो याद !!

देखे जून आज फेरी तिम्रो रुपको झल्को आयो
याद सँगै बिताएका ति मधुर पलको आयो

फुलबारिमा फलेका छन फल मन लोभ्याउने
मानसपटमा तर मुहार त्यै मेरै फलको आयो

मिलन हुँदा खुशी हुने बिछोडको दु:ख अर्कै
हाम्लाई टाढा बनाउने खेद दैव छलको आयो

कस्तो थियो साथ तिम्रो रमाईला ति दिन थिए
जीवन यो उराठलाग्दो मन्मा आजकलको आयो

बिछोडको वेदनालाई रोएर नै टारेकी थ्यौ
सम्झना बिछोडिदा बहेका अश्रु भलको आयो

STORY OF TORTOISE AND RABBIT

I think there are a few people in this world who might not have heard the story of Rabbit & Tortoise.  It is like this:

Once upon a time in a place, there was a Rabbit who was proud of his running speed. He was very fast in running among the all animals living in that place. He used to bother the Tortoise because of its slow speed. One day Rabbit challenged the Tortoise for a race. Tortoise thought for a while and accepted for the race. The day of Race came and both started racing. In a short period Rabbit had left the Tortoise far behind. So he thought to take a rest and meanwhile it slept. To his surprise when he woke up, the slow Tortoise had crossed the Victory line.

LESSION: Slow and Steady Wins the Race

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The story we all have heard is up to this only. But the story had not finished. It continues as follows:

After being defeated, Rabbit realized his mistake and again challenged the Tortoise for a second Race. Tortoise agreed and they fixed the date of Race. Race began and this time also Rabbit left the Tortoise far behind. But this time he didn’t take rest till he crossed the Victory line.

 LESSION: Fast and Steady Also Wins the Race

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After few days, Tortoise again challenged the Rabbit for the race. Rabbit was sure he will not commit the mistake of First race. So he accepted the challenge. This time the racing spot was changed. Race began, Rabbit took his most speed and tortoise also took his highest speed. Rabbit left the Tortoise far behind. In the way he saw a river that he was not able to cross. After few hours tortoise came with its usual racing speed and crossed the river and the Victory Line as well.

LESSION: Proper Planning leads you to success and don’t take Decisions without proper plan.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Again the Rabbit and the Tortoise met and after a short conversation they told each other,” Let’s have a Final Race”

This time, the spot contained both land and rivers. Surprising all, the Race was a tie.

You may be also surprised how it happened???

The reason is like this. In this race, wherever there was land, rabbit carried the tortoise and wherever there was water, tortoise carried the Rabbit. This was how they both finished the Line of Victory at the same time.

LESSION: Team Work leads to success. (Together we win)

 

 

This story not only me but also most KECians heard a lot of times from the Prof. Hirendra Man Pradhan, Chairman of Kathmandu Engineering College. I would like to share this story with my friends and I am sure it will touch your heart.

History of Nepal

The Ancient Period

THE MYTHOLOGICAL PERIOD

According to Hindu belief , the history of the development of Nepalese civilization and culture can be traced back to the Age of truth. King Manu, who is said to be the first King of the world ruled Nepal in the Age of Truth (Satya Yuga) and Nepal was known as the Land of Truth (Satyawati). It was called the land of solitary meditation and penance (Tapovan) in the Silver Age (Treta Yuga). Similarly, Nepal was known as the ladder of slavation (Muktisopan) in the Copper Age (Dwapar Yuga); and it is known as 'Nepal' in the Iron Age, i.e., the present age of science and technology (Kali Yuga). The kings of the Solar dynasty ruled Nepal in the Age of Truth. They contributed much to the development of the Nepalese civilization and culture. The fact that we still follow the Solar Calendar in celebrating festivals and ceremonies testifies to the rule of the Solar Dynasty kings in our country.

The country, full of great forests, was the chosen place for sages like Kanwa, Biswamitra, Agastya, Valmiki, Yajnavalkya and others. King Dushyanta of India married Shakuntala, the adopted daughter of Kanwa Rishi of Nepal. Their son Bharat ruled over here. Then Nepal was called Mahabharat, and the surrounding territories under the souverainty of King Bharat was called Bharat (now the other name of India).

The Mahabharat range stands to corroborate this belief of King Bharat's supremacy. There are several references in the religious books of Hindus about Nepal. Janak, the king of Janakpur was known widely for the administration of justice. Some people believe that the Ramayan was composed at the bank of the Saptagandaki. Veda Vyasa was born here. The Vyas Cave at Damauli (Vyasangar) signifies this belief. Similarly, Biratnagar, the kingdom of King Birat is also mentioned in the Mahabharata. All these references show that Nepal had developed long before Manjushri visited the Kathmandu Valley. It is mentioned in Swayambhu Puran that Manjushri came from China and managed to drain away the water of a big lake called Nagadaha and peopled the valley. He established a town called Manjupattan and installed Dharmakar, its king.

After that, the history of Nepal was more or less limited to the history of the Kathmandu Valley. Since then, Nepal has been ruled by the kings of various dynasties - the Ahirs or Gopala, the Kiratas, the Lichchhavis, the Mallas and the Shahs.





ETYMOLOGY OF THE WORD 'NEPAL'
The word 'Nepal' has significantly been used as the name of our country. There are various opinions about it :

1. Long, long ago, the kings of the Gopala dynasty ruled over it. They were called 'Nepa', so, after the name of the dynasty who ruled over it, the country was named as 'Nepal'.

2. A sage called 'Ne' lived in penance on the confluence of the Bagmati and Bishnumati rivers. He was the sole advisor of the king. So, the word 'Nepal' was derived from the name of the sage 'Ne'.

3. 'Nepal' might also be derived from 'Newar', one of the ancient tribes living in Kathmandu valley.

4. In the Gandaki Mahatmya, it is mentioned that a king called 'Nepa' ruled over it. He conquered many kingdoms and established Shanker as his deity. He founded a country and called it 'Nepal', after his own name.

5. In the Tibetan language 'Ne' means 'home' and 'pal' means 'wool'. Sheep were reared in Kathmandu valley and much wool was produced. So, it was called the home of wool, i.e., Ne Pal.

6. In the Newari language 'Ne' means 'centre' and 'pa' means 'country'. So, 'Ne pa' means a country situated at the centre. Nepal is situated in between the two great countries, China and India. So, it was called a central country, i.e., Nepal.

7. In the Limbu dialect 'Ne' means 'plain area'. Kathmandu valley is a plain, so it was called 'Nepal'.

8. In the dialect of the Lepchas, 'Ne' means 'holy' and 'pal' means 'cave'. As it is a holy place - the centre of pilgrimage of Hindus and Buddhists, it was called a holy cave or Nepal.

9. In the language of the Tibeto-Burma people, 'Ne' means 'cattle' and 'pa' means 'people'. Kathmandu valley had a good grassland for cattle and the main occupation of the people was to rear animals. So, it was called the land of the people who reared animals, i.e., Nepal.

10. Thomas Young and Geroge Griharson, the two famous historians gave thier opinion that both the terms 'Nepal' and 'Newar' might be derived from the same root 'Nyarva'. In this way, Nyarva was turned into Newar and then to Nepal.

11. Kiratas, the earliest known inhabitants of this country, had a clan called 'Nepar' living in Kathmandu valley. So, Nepal might also be derived from Nepar.



SOURCES OF THE HISTORY OF NEPAL

There are no reliable written documents on the history of ancient Nepal. The people of that time had no historical sense. There had been the rise and fall of different dynasties all the time. The mode of administration, way of life, culture and civilization kept on changing from time to time. However, there are varieties of historical monuments, coins, temples, images of Gods and Goddesses, works of art, inscriptions, etc. which throw light on our past. They help us to draw the history of our country.

a. Chronicles: Chronicles (Bamsawalis) are one of the main historical sources which throw light on ancient Nepal. The chronicles mostly complied by Brahmins and Bajracharyas, deal with religious works of kings. Most of the available chronicles were written in or about 1800 A.D.
The latest one was written by a Buddhist Monk of Patan during the regin of Rana Bahadur Shah. It was translated into English by Daniel Wright. A short history of the king, some important events related to the king, are mentioned inthis chronicle. But it does not contain anything about the culture, civilization and the life of the people.


b. Colophons : Colophons are the hand-written books (manuscripts) of ancient times. At the end of their manuscripts different writers have mentioned their names, the names of contemporary kings, and some of the main event. These have been of great to write our history.

c. Ancient Religious Texts : Great religious texts of the Hindus like the Puranas, the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, etc. also help us to collect the historical facts of ancient Nepal. The marriage of Sita, the daughter of King Janak of Janakpur with Prince Ram of Ayodhya helped to exchange the culture of Nepal with India. The Kings of Nepal had participated in the great war of Mahabharata. The king of Nepal also took part in the Swayambara ceremony of Damayanti. Similarly, the king of Nepal offered gold, diamonds, herbs, animals and beautiful girls as gifts to King Yudhisthira of India in his Coronation Ceremony. Such accounts and other references have contributed much to the writing of the history of ancient Nepal.

d. Stone and Copper Inscriptions : Stone and Copper inscriptions of ancient times can also be a considerable help to write our history. The inscription written on stones and copper are found from the 5th century A.D. to 8th century A.D. in Sanskrit. The Lichchhavi inscriptions at the temple of Changunarayan and those of Lazimpat are such inscriptions. but the inscriptions after the rule of the Lichchhavi King Siva Deva are yet to be found. However, from the 14th century onward, from the rule of Malla King, Jaysthiti Malla, there are sufficient inscriptions in various places on the basis of which it is possible to write the history of ancient Nepal.

e. Ancient Buildings, Temples and Stupas : Ancient buildings, temples, stupas, statues and wooden and metal images are other reliable sources of the history of Nepal. They provide clear evidence of the excellence of the Nepalese arts and sculptures. They also tell us the names of artists and sculptors, and their patrons. The most important temples are of Changunarayan, Pashupatinath, Hanuman Dhoka. Krishna Mandir of Patan, the Nyatapol (five - storey) of Bhaktapur, Swayambhunath, Baudhnath, Mahabaudha, etc. These temples and the statues of the Malla kings are of great historical value.

f. Ancient Coins : Different kinds of coins on which names of the sun, the moon, horses, bulls, etc., are imprinted, have been found in different places. These coins throw light on the character, work, period of rule, tastes and religious temperament of the kings of that time.



g. Foreign Accounts : This history of Nepal has also come to light from the writings and accounts of foreigners and foreign travellers. It is mentioned in Arthasastra of Kautilya that Nepalese woollen blankets were of great demand in the Indian markets. Similarly, the Rajtarangini of Kalhan speaks about the Nepalese war. Again, the collective writings of the Chinese kings of the 'Ming' dynasty, the accounts of the Chinese travellers like Hieun Tseng, and the writings of Indian and European historians throw much light on the history of Nepal.

h. Archaelogical Findings : Ancient vessels, coins, utensils, images and stone-taps have been discovered from recent excavation works at Tilaurakot, Lumbini, Bishalnagar, Lazimpat and Ratna Park. They also are of great historical value. It is expected that new archaeological evidence will be discovered from time to time that will tell us more about our history.



THE LEGENDARY PERIOD

There is no definite historical proof of this period. On the basis of legends, chronologies and folk-lores, a history is drawn on supposition. So, this period is called legendary period.

1. The Kathmandu Valley Kathmandu Valley consisted of a big lake called 'Nagadaha'. The lake was surrounded by hills on all sides and there was nothing but water in it. In ancient times, a sage called Bipaswi Buddha settled on Nagarjun hill, in the north - west corner of Nagadaha. On the full moon day of Chaitra, he sowed a lotus seed in the middle of the lake through divine inspiration.

After six months on the full moon day of Aswin, a lotus flower grew out of the seed and the image of Swayambhu appeared there throwing bright rays of light. Later on, Bishwabhu Buddha came with his disciples and settled on Fulchoki hill. He worshipped Lord Swayambhu with a hundred thousand flowers and taught his disciples how to drain out the water of the lake and went back.

2. Manjushri Bodhisattwa It is mentioned in the Swayambhu Puran that Manjushri came from China to worship the glowing flame of Lord Swayambhu. From the top of Mandapgiri (Nagarkot) he saw the flames constantly emanating from Swayambhu. Then he thought to drain out the water of Nagadaha. Placing his two Shaktis (powers) - 'Mokshyada' on Fulchoki and 'Barada' on Katwaldaha, he cut down the hill between them with his sword and let the water go out of it. A beautiful valley with good soil appeared and he asked his disciples to settle there. Then he worshipped Swayambhu and Guheswari. He made Dharmakar, one of his disciples, the ruler of the valley. He also founded a beautiful city and named it Manjupattan. Then, leaving his disciples, he went back to his country.

3. Krakuchanda Buddha Krakuchanda came from Kshamavati and lived in the forest near Guheswari along with his disciples. The forest was a beautiful place to live in. It was called Mrigasthali as the Gods and Goddesses visited this place in the form of deer to see Lord Swayambhu and Guheswari. It was also called Slesmantak because the Slesman tree grew there. Lord Shiva used to wander about this forest in the guise of a Kirat. A stone image of Lord Shiva is still found there which is known as Kirateswar.

King Dharmakar had no issue. So Dharmapal, one of the disciples of Krakuchanda succeeded him. Karkuchanda found that there was a scarcity of water in the valley. So, he prayed to Goddess Guheswari for it. The Goddess listened to his prayer and generated the river Bagmati from the north of Shivapur hill.

This place is now called Bagdwar, the source of the Bagmati river. Sudhanwa was another king, the descendant of Dharmapal. It is said that Sudhanwa participated in the Swayambara ceremony of Sita at Janakpur. During the ceremony he was killed by Kushadhoj, the brother of King Janak. Now Kushadhoj came to reign in Nepal. His descendants ruled over Nepal for many centuries.



4. Prachanda Dev At the end of the Dwapar Yuga, Kanakmuni Buddha from Shobhavati and Kashyap Buddha from Varanasi came to Nepal on a pilgrimage tour. When Kanakmuni went back to Gaud, he sent Prachanda Dev, the king of Gaud (Bengal) to Nepal to worship Swayambhu and Guheswari. He also advised the king to become the disciple of Gunakar, one of the disciples of Manjushri, Prachanda Dev, thus came to Nepal and became a monk. He was later known as 'Shantishri'. He covered the flaming image of Swayambhu and erected a stupa over it. He also made five penance groves, viz. Agnipur, Shantipur, Vayupur, Nagpur and Basupur.

The last king of Kushadhoj's dynasty died childless. So, Prachanda Dev's son Shakti Dev came from Gaud and made one of his relatives Gunakama Dev, the king of Nepal. It is said that there had been a great famine in Nepal during the region of Gunakama Dev. Then Shantishri (Prachanda Dev) with the help of the Nagas, got rid of the famine when they received plenty of rainfall. The last king of this dyansty was Simhaketu. During his region Nepal was quite developed in all aspects. Nepal had trade relations with India, Tibet and Sri Lanka. After Simhaketu, there was a long succession of kings. Dharmadutta came from south India, who peopled the country with the four castes of Hindus i.e., Brahman, Kshetriya, Vaishya and Sudra. It is also said that he built the temple of Pashupatinath.

5. The Gopal Dynasty There was a great earthquake and, as a result of earthquake, the temple of Pashupatinath and toppled down and debris had covered the flaming image. Then, Danasur (a demon) again filled the valley with water. So, Lord Krishna came to Nepal, killed Dansasur and married his daughter. He also drained out the water through the gorge of Chobar, and peopled the valley. A large number of cowherds had come along with Lord Krishna and they settled in Nepal.

Nemuni, who according to a legend, is considered to be the patron saint of Nepal, used to perform religious ceremonies at Teku, the confluence of the Bagmati and Bishnumati rivers. He selected a pious cowherd, Bhuktaman to be the first king in the line of the gopal (cowherd) dynasty. The Gopal dynasty ruled for 621 years. Yakshya Gupta was the last king of this dynasty. In course of time, pastoral disputes arose and this dynasty was replaced by the 'Ahirs' or 'Abhirs'. Ahir was another cowherd and shepherd race from India. Three kings of this dynasty ruled over Nepal. They were Badasimha, Jaymati Simha and Bhuban Simha. The Gopal and Ahir dynasties are supposed to be the beginning of the historical dynasty in Nepal. Bhuban Simha was defeated by Yalamber, the chief of the Kiratas, who invaded Nepal from the east and became the first Kirat king of Nepal.

अधुरो सपना नयाँ नेपालको



निर्दोश यी नयनमा धुलो छर्ने,
परीचित तिनै अनुहारहरु ।
चाहेर नि भुल्न सक्दिन म,
आमा बेच्ने ति दुराचारहरु ।
हाम्रै रगत र पसिनामा
ठड्याईएका भब्य महलहरु ।
बिकासको नाममा गरिएका,
भ्रमवाहक पहलहरु ।
आज मेरा सामु लोकतन्त्रको भाषण ओकल्दैछन्,
र त अधुरो लाग्छ मेरो सपना नयाँ नेपालको ।

हिजो सम्म 'आतंककारी' कहलाएर,
टाउकोको मोल भिरेकाहरु ।
१२ बर्शे जंगल शयरपछी,
थकाई मार्न महल छिरेकाहरु ।
हाम्रो रगतको होली खेल्ने,
घिन लाग्दा ति हातहरु
बिनाकसूर आफन्त अपहरित हुँदा,
सन्त्रासमा बिताएका रातहरु ।
आज फेरी मलाई गणतन्त्रको नारा रटाउँदैछन्,
र त अधुरो लाग्छ मेरो सपना नयाँ नेपालको ।

मुलुक निर्माणको जिम्मेवारी सुम्पीईएकाहरु,
कुर्सी तानातानको नाटकमा फसेपछी ।
सत्ताको मोहमा जंगली ब्वाँसाहरु,
र्‍याल चुहाउँदै संसद पसेपछी ।
खबरदार अझै बिशालु सर्पहरु,
नयाँ चाल चाल्न सक्छन ।
मौलाउन लागेको लोकतन्त्र,
फुल्न नदीई ढाल्न सक्छन ।
तैपनी अझै कसैमा चेतनाको घाम लाग्दैन,
र त अधुरो लाग्छ मेरो सपना नयाँ नेपालको ।

पहाड तराई हिमाल जहाँ रहेपनी,
हामी नेपाली हौं हाम्रो नेपाल ।
पुर्खाको नासो, रगत पसिनाले सिंचेको माटो,  
सानो छैन बिबिधता छन् बिशाल ।
शहीदहरुको बलिदान पुर्खाको नासो,
खेर नजाओस प्रण गरौ ।
अनेक जातजाती, सुन्दर यो फुलबारी,
आउ मिलिजुली मलजल भरौ ।
भन्नेहरुको बोली खेर जान्छ, कसैले सुन्दैनन्,
र त अधुरो लाग्छ मेरो सपना नयाँ नेपालको
