NEPAL'S NEW NATIONAL ANTHEM:
to celebrate o celebrate the restoration of multiparty democracy, Nepal is searching for the right note - a new national anthem that would provide the right blend of patriotism and people's sovereignty.
The country is now presently considering many intellectuals and literatures for a new national anthem and minister of state for in formation and communications , mr. dilendra prasad babu is busy in it,who is also the spokesman of girija prasad koirala government
they are now lookin for a song that honours nation and people and that paye tribute to the people as the state soveriegn power
the natinal anthem " "Shrimân gambhira Nepâli prachanda pratâpi bhupati", was last sung in public May 17. The next day, Nepal's parliament, reinstated after four years, unanimously approved of a series of dramatic changes to clip the powers of King Gyanendra in retaliation for his having seized absolute power through a coup last year.
he has ruled with an iron hand for 15 months and axing the national anthem that hailed the king as the sovereign.
The history of the national anthem goes back to 1895 when prime minister Bir Shumshere Jung Bahadur Rana ruled for six years.
It was felt that two separate tunes should be composed to salute the king and the prime minister during their public appearances and the army band was asked to produce the music.
Once the two tunes were composed, the rulers wanted songs and a committee was formed to come up with the lyrics. The Nepali Language Publications Committee asked popular poet Chakrapani Chalise to do the needful and he wrote two separate songs
Chalise's salutation to the king, roughly translated, goes: "Brave sovereign Nepalis, may glory crown you/His majesty, king of kings, our glorious ruler/May he live for ever/May the number of his subjects increase/Let every Nepali sing this with joy." bot after the battle in 1950's between ranas and titular kings, ranas has ended the rule.
ad the song was discarded
the king salutation was only song till 1962 but then after chalise death a new constitution has been written and royal salutation became national anthem
the strike against the national anthem was first started in people's war where this song should not be sung in any schools or assemblies
butnow this song ,WRITTEN BY CHALISE ,is completely discarded and new national anthem will come for NEPAL'S GOVERNMENT.................................
