Courtesy of the Nepal Unites movement Bagmati Bridge has received a face-lift. Not only that but whilst the volunteers were at it they also cleaned the area covered by the bridge. This movement which primarily started off Facebook is a fine example of how each of us citizens should be regardless of where we are from, Nepal or elsewhere; RESPONSIBLE. You make your mess, go clean after it. If everyone followed that rule then we wouldn’t have to block our nose whilst walking in various junctions of Kathmandu. Now I know it’s easier said than done but we can try our best. It’s all hand in hand. Apart from campaigning to put pressure on the Government to write the constitution, this movement has been successful in attracting the youth, public figures from the media field and in general putting pressure. After we had our own Nepal Unites – London protest other places in USA, Finland to Australia have hosted and will be hosting such events too.
If you’re in the capital and want to take part then come along and join us in the Basantapur rally this Saturday. If you don’t know what this is about then still come along as you can learn along the way.
PS. I’m in Nepal from tomorrow so please visit lexlimbu.com directly as Facebook wont be as active.
