The golden pages flipped within the platoon market. Part 2

In the case of Old Assam, ie the Eastern Region of India, the school named after Nepali medium was established in 1876. This is the school – Gorkha Pathshala located in the upper part of Selangor, the capital of Meghalaya. At present, there are several Nepali medium schools in the state of Mizoram. Demonstrating the fact that there are more non-Gurkha students than Gurkhas in these schools, the development area of ​​Devkota town expects collective activism to keep these schools alive as per the objective of the establishment period. No. 2 Akhil Prakash Sharma of Birkuti, Guwahati has pointed out the need to include a compulsory Nepali subject in the Gurkha High School even though Hindi is the medium of instruction and later transform the school into a Gurkha college.

Stating that Nepali mother tongue has received formal honors in Assam since 1928, Dr. Khagen Sharma says, our ancestors were devoted to themselves and culture. Even now, the Nepali-speaking Gorkhas are showing a state of awareness and activism for the preservation and promotion of the language. If there is an arrangement to teach Nepali subjects from primary level to university level, concrete work will be done for the preservation of Nepali language. At the upper level, Nepali language is being taught as a major subject in the colleges under Guwahati and Badland University. In English and Assamese medium government and private schools, Nepali can be taught as a subject language from class 6 to class 8. It is important to move forward in a systematic way. Even though the number of students is low, there is a provision to study Nepali in senior secondary (9 to 12), college and school.

After the student of Jnanpith Degree College (Nikasi) passed BA in Nepali major subject (2022), Nepali subject in MA has become necessary for further study. The University of Badland is in the process of giving permission and an initiative is being taken to establish a Nepali department in the same university. The illusion that studying Nepali affects one’s job should be removed. If everyone is active, Nepali subjects will be taught in at least two schools in Assam including LP and ME and there will be at least 200 Nepali government teachers.

Examining the historical perspective of Assamese Nepalis, Dhaka Ram Kafle has expressed his profound views in this way: From ancient times, the Gorkhas who came to Assam from Nepal lost their separate identity and became one with the original people of Assam. After the Sugauli Treaty of 1816, the arrival of Gorkhas in Assam gained momentum. Since then, the Gorkhas who have come to Assam for various reasons have been showing their presence in the wider Assamese society with their distinctive identity.

In the above background of migration, Nepali settlement has increased in Guwahati and surrounding areas, farmers, workers working in various companies and those retiring from the army have become permanent residents. Therefore, the author Kafle estimates that Nepali culture has started to be seen in the area of ​​Paltan Bazaar etc. since 1900 BS. Keshav Pandey, the founding chief of the Gurkha Autonomous Govt. The Gorkhas fought many world famous wars on the side of the British. The Gurkha army has a special significance in India as well.

In India, our ancestors fought for ethnic existence from the ‘Gorkha’ caste. We are all Gurkhas with different languages ​​and cultures and we are proud to be Gurkhas. The Gorkhas were one of the castes who liberated India from the yoke of the British and built the Republic of India. Ari Bahadur Gurung, a representative of the Gurkha caste, is the person who drafted the constitution from the Constituent Assembly. Expressing this pride, Keshav Pandey said that the Gurkhas of Assam, like the Gurkhas of other parts of India, are aware of their existence and that the Gurkhas should be properly uplifted through autonomous rule.

There are many such materials in ‘Smriti Darpan’ which have effectively reflected the direction of Nepali language, culture, tradition, intimacy and upliftment. The selfless service rendered by the ancestors, the meaningful deeds put forward for the future generations and the glorious tradition of Nepali / Gurkhali being carried out by the present generation seems to be less appreciated at this time. Fortunately, this rower reached Kamakhya Mai to visit the invaluable Gorkhali monument ‘Nepali Temple’. Then, the golden pages of the platoon reached the platoon market!

 At this time, Gaindakot’s brother Shankar Acharya cannot be missed. “Dai, if you are going to Kamakhya, you must also reach the Nepali temple of Paltan Bazaar!” If he had not given such prior information, he probably would not have reached there! Had it not been for this, I would not have been able to experience this shared Nepali ethnic pride. In this sense, I consider myself lucky.

self-esteem The glorious Nepali temple in the center of Guwahati has become an image of our indomitable self-esteem, realizing the existence of glorious splendor, religious values ​​and successful Gorkhali. The benevolent ancestors and the active conscious present generation, who have been working day and night to make this sense of pride, admirable, memorable and exemplary.Gratitude and best wishes to all the people who are proud of their self (Nepali) caste, self (Nepali) language and self (Nepali) culture in any part of the world and continue to be enthusiastically active accordingly!
