I have some friends from: Thailand, Taiwaan, Korea, and Japan, who study with me. I feel some proud because most of them follow Buddhism, and respect Buddha, though I am secular. But It always hurts me, most of my friends think Buddha was borne in India.Actually, most of them never knew or heard about Nepal. No one has any idea about the birth place of Buddha, though most of them have a wildest dream to visit this holy place.
I questioned them who told you Buddha was borne in India. The answer was very common like inborn knowledge. They have never read the document about it. so, it si very hard for me convice them. Now a days I am almost tired of crying- होइन साथी- गौतम बुद्ध नेपालमा जन्मेको हो (No..oooo..no… Buddhha was borne in Nepal).
I find some interestig facts fronm this incident. First of all, the popularity and name of Nepal is condensing day by day. it is very expectable because No Nepalese has done anything to highligth the name of country except in world war II. Definately, after world war II, many people knew Nepal and Nepali because we faught for British bravely.After that, obody has done any significat work to highlight the name of the country.
The year long armed conflict and corrupt parliament, the repurcession is brutal. we are not able to sell the fame of our mountains. Impunity sucks whole nation. No progress in sports, music, academic sector. So, how the world knows us. But we have one misconception, we are famous in the world. I think its wrong. we have to do a lot to make our country famous. The world is under massive social and technological change. The older generation has been replaced by newer one. People are forgetting world war II day by day. But we are still foolishly trying to sell the story of expire movie.
