Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 29, 2013

Ishani makes Nepal proud like never before

Nepal for the first time in history has been able to come in Top 10 with a 5th position. Ishani Shrestha had already won a title “Beauty with purpose” and now by being able to make her a decent place in the Top 10 finalist she has undoubtedly craved a space for Nepal.

Though Ishani couldn’t make it to Top 5, she performed really well. The entire country is proud with her performance. She rocked Nepal’s identity with her grace, beauty, talent and dedication of course. It was indeed disappointing for everyone not to find her in Top 5 because she had become a semifinalist by capturing a 5th position in the countdown. Read the rest of this entry »

Nepal was promoted in Pako Festa, Australia

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 24, 2013

Parade

23 February 2013 Geelong, Australia: Geelong, the second biggest city of Victoria in Australia, transformed into a multicultural melting pot as thousands flocked to the thirty-first annual Pako Festa. It incorporated an extravagant street parade featuring around ninety floats and hundreds of performers representing forty-five affiliated ethnic communities and around sixty other community groups and organizations. The street was lined with stalls selling traditional foods and arts and crafts, and nine separate stages in the precinct offer performances of music and dance as well as interactive workshops and exhibitions. Pako Festa has become Victoria’s premier multicultural event, attended by well over hundred thousand people in each of the last three years and estimated to inject close to $2.5 million dollars into the local economy just over the course of the day itself.

Because of very nominal Nepalese in Geelong, Lumbini-Kapilvastu Day Movement Global Coordinator Mr. Ram Kumar Shrestha requested other Nepalese communities living in other cities to use Pako Festa as opportunity to promote Nepal as the country of the Buddha and the Mt. Everest. His idea was for Nepal to take advantage of this big gathering from different counties to try to dismiss misinformation of Buddha’s birthplace. Nepalese Association of Victoria President Bom Yonjan, Nepali Sanchar Managing Director Pramod K Soni and Namaste Nepal News Chief Editor Sabin Thapa, and Lumbini-Kapilvastu Day Movement Victoria Committee were active for necessary input and mobilized community members to participate in the festival to promote Nepal as the country of the Buddha and the Mt. Everest. Nepalese communities promoted Nepal through flags, banners, Nepali music, dance, Nepali dress and stalls. Miss Nepal Australia 2012 Deepashree Shah represented our country with a Kumari dance. Read the rest of this entry »
