‘I am from Nepal, the country of Mount Everest and Lord Buddha’
There are millions of things us Nepalis can relate to.
*Goes through all the food items in the menu and ends up ordering momos
I don’t think I need to explain why we can relate to momos. Momo is prolly the most important snack of ours. The answer to all weather snacks, lunches and dinner is momo.
P.S. – You’ve already have had a plate of momo today, yesterday or atleast you’re thinking of having it later today.
P.P.S. – Could someone go ahead and declare momos as our national food, already?
Remember those countless times you’ve voted for our Nepali didi bahini and daju bhais in international competitions and pageants? I’m sure you do. Aren’t we all proud of Anuradha Koirala, Pushpa Basnet, Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita, Teriya Fauja Magar… and the list continues.
By the way, did you vote for Mira Rai, our national pride?
Ohhooo.. kasto motako/dublako?
Dashain, Tihar, Chaitey Dashain or any get together with relatives and at least one of your kins would make you realise that you’ve either gained weight or lost too much.
Mamaghar= tika and dakchhina
No matter how old you get, you always are offered tika and dakchhina by your hajuraama/hajurba or mama maiju.
18+ = marriage offers and pressures!
I’m sure we all know the pain. As soon as you graduate your high school, you are sure to be pelted with marriage proposals and pressure.
News about you hanging around with someone of opposite sex reaches home before you do
Nepali neighbours, and/or relatives are the fastest communicators in the world, IMO.
Okay, can we just go ahead and declare bandas as one of our national festivals?
Nepal’s win in international matches ‘Yo jeet kasko Nepal ko!’
No matter how diverse and multicultural we are, when our players bring home trophies, our hearts are filled with happiness. We love our players!
We don’t mind having dal bhat 3 times a day, or even four!
Two dal-bhat meals is really common among Nepalis. But we don’t mind having left over dal bhat as our lunch or gobble some up at midnight.
Face smeared with vermillion powder and marigold garland is our kind of welcome!
From David Beckham to Selena Gomez and other national guests, we welcome them by smudging their faces with abir and beautifully woven flower garlands.
Festive season= Facebook filled with festive pictures
Okay everyone knows what this means. Let’s just move to the next point.
National flag, Mount Everest and Lord Buddha
I believe that Nepalis spend most of their lives trying to prove to the rest of the world that Mount Everest and Lord Buddha belong to Nepal. About national flag, aren’t we proud of the only non-quadrilateral Nationl Flag in the world?
Now, what’s the most used word in Nepal?
Loadshedding equals to no water motor so no water, no internet, no TV and no life, so Stone Age, basically.
But hey, am I the only one who misses loadshedding in Kathmandu, right now?
To conclude, I would like to add that no matter which city/town/village we belong to, or religion or race we are from, we always are proud of being a Nepali. Aren’t we all amazing?
