February 19, 2015, I was walking with  my friends in Basantapur, a famous World Heritage enlisted site by UNESCO, before and after the advent of Nepal Earthquake 2015, for gatherings. be it a college reunion, or you wanna have a sip of Nepali style tea with  some chitchats, you can always count Basantapur in. While we were waiting for our all friends to arrive, we were posing for pictures (its natural i guess, everyone don’t come on time). We saw a man on his 50s, wearing Daura Suruwal ( Nepali national dress) waving Nepali National flag and passers by were staring at him and clicking some photos of him, with him- portrait, selfie, wefie and in every possible forms. One of my friends was curious to know who that man was? where did he come from?

I was also curious about him and I wanted to take a picture with him and Nepali National Flag. I insisted my friend to go and ask him. He went and asked for permission to take picture with the flag and him. We took some pictures and all of us were happy and smiling.

I was curious about him and asked where is he from and why he does this all day?

Based on conversation with him

” I am from Kalimati. A small town from Kathmandu famously known as the ‘tarkari bazaar’:vegetable market.  All I want is my country’s flag to be known by people around the globe. Firstly, I want to start it from ourselves, within our citizens. I want everyone to Respect for country’s flag, build patriotism.

Here, I am not representing any organizations , I represent myself, a Nepali! ”

Nepal’s national flag is a unique triangular flag as you can see in the picture above- one of it’s kind in the world.

I was very inspired by what he said.It mesmerized me and my mind was striked with a thiught that day. Yes! an individual can start on his own for a change, why not we? He started on his own and continues to do so. Let’s start from ourselves!

At present date as well, after the Nepal Earthquake 2015, The Flag Bearer of Kathmandu- Laxmi Narayan Shilpakar stands at Basantapur premises and waves Nepali national flag.
You can find him on facebook. See the image below :

Why do these discrimination exist regarding caste, gender , class, clan, race.. ?? teit!! To all the people first of all we are HUMAN BEINGS and if you don’t value the importance of this B’ful Life than just go to hell.. but u dont have the right to discrminate and intrude other’s LIFE. See this life from the HUMANITARIAN perspective.

Talking about me being a dalit youth,

My vision has changed from what i have experienced from the past.   Now, I perceive this world through Global perspective. I  have the vision to help others who are deprived of their rights but not like the so called high caste people who keep on humiliating and abusing people like me.

In Fact, these days i feel its good that i am a DALIT ; cause this makes me much more stronger than the person what i was in my past. I can easily distinguish who are the discriminators and what their intensions are!  I have become more responsible, more competitive and my skills: i think they are improving day by day and i can just say those hypocrites on their face –

” Yes! I am a DALIT and i live my life and have my vision far more better than yours in a  much more positive way”
