Dont worry Nepal will not be going through a mini-crusade but the collision is due to the struggle that Christians and Kiratis are facing to find burial rights as the Govnt has failed to designate an area in which they can bury their dead. Shleshmantak Forest just on the outer edges of Pashupatinath was where Christians and Kiratis buried their dead, however the Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT) are on a revamp spree which also includes the forest making it out of bounds for any further burials. Our PM, I dont know which one; also spoke out against this since news of a Kirati man being denied a burial spot made headlines recently. Now we dont want another ‘let Christians have their own state’ debate now do we? We’ve had enough with the Limbuwan, Tamuwan, Khumbuwan and the rest ‘wans’. These wans are just like beauty pageants, theres too many to rememnber. Hoping for a quick solution to this – obviously Nepali timing ta bhaye halcha.
PS. where would you like to get buried? I always thought it would be nice to open a burial site as a business, acquire few ropanis of land, designate burial spots, provide security (euta thulo bhitta) and make it look pretty from the outside and charge the people a one-off fee. Sounds good right? Well if you ever use my business plan please give me a discount when my body heads your way.
