New National Anthem of Nepal

Posted by: Pawan Shrestha

सयौं थूंगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली
सार्वभौम भइ फैलिएका, मेची-महाकाली ।

प्रकृतिका कोटी-कोटी सम्पदाको आंचल
वीरहरुका रगतले, स्वतन्त्र र अटल

ज्ञानभूमि, शान्तिभूमि तराई, पहाड, हिमाल
अखण्ड यो प्यारो हाम्रो मातृभूमि नेपाल ।

बहुल जाति, भाषा, धर्म, संस्कृति छन् विशाल
अग्रगामी राष्ट्र हाम्रो, जय जय नेपाल ।


We are hundreds of flowers, the one garland – Nepali
Sovereign, spread out from Mechi to Mahakali.

Amassing nature’s millions of heritage
By the blood of the braves, independent and immovable.

Land of knowledge, land of peace, Terai hills, mountains
Undivided this beloved, our motherland Nepal.

Diverse race, language, religion, culture are so large
Our progressive nation, long live, long live Nepal.

    one who cannot reason is a fool,
    one who doesnot reason is a bigot,
    one who dares not reason is a slave.

    nepali, though u have chosen this name , u r among the handful few nepalese still praying for your master.

    Even RPP have left monarchy and the present discourse is not about monarchy or republic but
    What kind of republic.

    timi le complex sanskrit bhanyau tara timi tyo sanskrit lai bujhne koshish nai garenau. ahile timile je boli rachau(nepali) tyo pani sanskrit kai derivation ho tara timro lagi agadi je lyayera rakhidiyo tehi nai thulo hunda raicha afule banaune auta soch pani rakhenau…

    Shriman Gambhir is one of the world’s best national anthem as our flag is and as our Gorkhali bravery is…

    Timiharule je bhane pani ahile yo stage aayera je rajniti gari ra chan chor neta haru le tyo sabai Prithivi Narayan Shah kai devotion ko faaaalll ho
    If he hadn’t done that, I don’t thin you would be hhere writing your stupid view here, (Hamro desh
    ta khaisakya hunthiryo bro British le pahile ani
    India Le ) tyo pani bujhna paryo sathi ho Nepal
    ma Raja yetikai chahine hoina, tara Hamro
    swabhiman paan ko lagi chahine ho, I don’t know
    if any of you are smart then you should be able
    think that why these foreign forces are to active
    in Nepal? that is because there is not a single
    person who could confront these forces, beside
    the King himself. Nepal lai ramro banune ho
    bhane Raja dekhi janata dekhi liyera saab party
    ek huna parcha natra kaam chaina desh bigrincha
    tesaile socha abaa timi haru dus choti ke hola
    bhabisya nepal ko bhanera timi haru le sajilai
    birsi ra cha ki raja ko supporter haru pani chan
    bhanera bholi raja lai nikalne ho bhane tini haru
    pani ta danga fasaad gari halchan ni tesaile
    sabai jana namili kana desh banne wala chaina……

    एकदम झूर, शब्दको नाश, feel kind of numb after reading. पहिलेको भन्दा काम नलाग्ने, खलास। दोभानलाई ब्याकुल माईलाले लेखेकै भरमा राम्रो लाग्या हुनु पर्छ।
    एक चोटी जर्मनीको गान पढनुस न then you will know.

    Regarding our last national anthem ‘srimaan gambhir..’
    as a child I never got the meaning of the complex sanskrit words .
    then when I too was a victim of the propagandist nationalism , I was very touched by the very tune,
    and then when I started to get the words, I used to feel pity for our own slavish ideals.

    This new song is simple and sweet. Little school children will enjoy it.
    What I like most abt it is that is carries the right notion of nepali nationalism “diversity” than the feudal concept of “gorkhe birata”.
