‘Sampark Bharat Nepal’ brings you “Reminiscing Kashi” as part of a series on 5th October 2021 (19th Ashoj, 2078 B.S.) through digital live media. The series focuses on memories of Nepalis, who have called the ancient city of Kashi, a home away from home.
Sampark Bharat Nepal is an initiative to bring together lakhs of Nepalis who have received education in India who are now spread all over Nepal. This platform seeks to develop intellectual, cultural, and social cooperation among alumni through greater interaction and activities.
While Nepal’s association with Kashi – Pravaas began centuries ago, ‘Reminiscing Kashi’ re-lives memories spanning the decades between the 1920s to 1980s – the decades when this city was a vibrant hub of Nepali diaspora – for revolutionary thinking, politics, religion, pilgrimage, education, publication, trade. It was a refuge for widows, for the elderly in their twilight years awaiting death, for young people aspiring for education, for political exiles escaping the oppressive Rana regime. This place shaped the sensibilities of the Nepali diaspora and ultimately of Nepali society thus contributing to Nepal’s cultural and political evolution. The city continues to be a focal point of shared culture and affection between Nepal and India.
‘Reminiscing Kashi’ is the first in the series, ‘Reminiscing My Alma Mater’ – a program of nostalgic trips down memory lane of some eminent Nepalis out of hundreds of thousands who studied in different Universities across India.
The program being aired from Swami Vivekanand Cultural Centre, Embassy of India, Kathmandu, on 5th October 2021 (From 3:30 PM to 5:30 P.M. Nepali Standard Time) will host Dr. Shashank Koirala, Durga Prasad Shreshta and Kiran Manandhar. It will be moderated by Ila Sharma. These prominent people, from different walks of life, will discuss their experiences and memories of living in Kashi.
The program will be aired Live through ‘Sampark Bharat Nepal’ FACEBOOK page
