Fagun 7 (Democracy Day ): A Royal Propaganda and Myth in Nepal

By Harsha Man Maharjan

Happy PraJaTanTra DiWas!!
Nothing really. Its just a great day, the sun’s shining ah but again everyone’s after the King’s “Baktabya”. But well, let me not talk of things I have no expertise on..So Happy Prajatantra Diwas Everyone! And For bloggers, I wish this Freedom of Expression Last for ever and ever!! And my day began with this day..So enjoy!! http://zade.wordpress.com/

I don't know how to answer her. I want to write more about Falgun 7. So here is my experience and idea about Falgun 7.

I have celebrated many Falgun 7 as Democracy days.

Nepal celebrated 57th Democracy day on 19 February 2007.

During my school days I used to praise King Tribhuwan for fleeing Delhi, sacrificing his happiness and supporting the Anti-Rana movement. I saw nothing wrong to declare him the father of Democray or Rastrapita or Father of the country. blah.blah.

I got this impression from text books on history I read in my school. My holidays on these occasions thickened my belief. Broadsheet dailies Gorkhapatra and The Rising Nepal publish special issues on the day. They did same this year also.

This praise for Tribhuwan no more remains in me. In fact from few I doubt this notion from few years. It is due to my colleagues at Martin Chautari, a platform of discussions.

Today I take Falgun 7 as a propaganda this country is disseminating from 2007 v.s (1951). It is a myth that I deny to buy. I could only free sorry to PM and ministers to fall in this royal trap. They could not damned this day.

That's why they are still giving holiday on this day. We need to learn real incident.
On Fagun 6, I found a book, Sri Panch Mahendra ra Samakalin Nepal (King Mahendra and Contemporary Nepal) while visiting second hand books on pavements near RNAC building. This book eulogizes late King Mahendra who cashed the cold war situation and pleaded the notion of ‘Bikas’or development in the country which was languishing in darkness. He ruled Nepal for thirty years absolutely. He became a shrewd dictator.

The book’s information:
Writer: Tirtha Raj Tuladhar
Published date: Jestha 29, 2021 v.s
Publisher: Department of publicity, Ministry of

Here writer’s name is unimportant. During Panchayat period the king would not let people know reality. Books like Leo Rose and Bhuwan Lal Joshi’s Democratic Innovation in Nepal etc were banned for presenting real political history of Nepal after 1951.

The books tells also about Fagun 7 and its importance in Nepal. According the book, on Fagun 7 2007 (18 February 1951) late king Tribhuwan made a historical proclamation after he returned Nepal on 4 Fagun 2007 (15 February 1951) from India. That’s why even king Gyanendra could not resist him from giving a statement on this day though it is unconstitutional.
And literally he has dug his own grave.

The book only informs that on that day he declared a Rana-Congress coalition cabinet. But it does not give more information on Tribuwan’s royal proclamation.

I found this proclamation in Grishma Bahadur Devkota’s book, Nepal ko Rajnaitik Darpan.
O. I could not believe what I found in the book. I really did not believe what I found in the book.
On that day, could you believe! Tribhuwan declared that he desired a republic political set up in Nepal formed by election. And he formed the cabinet so that there could be the election.

He never let that election happened till he died on 30 Falgun 2011 v.s (14 March 1955). He cashed internal feud in Nepali congress and made Matrika Prasad Koirala Prime Minister in next cabinet. Tribhuwan also formed other cabinets only in his convenience.

It is Tribhuwan who took direct control of army and assumed the title of Supreme Commander of Chief on the pretext on Vir Gorkha Dal. This dal, backed by Ranas tried to subvert army and overthrow the government. For more detail I request readers to study the book Democratic Innovation in Nepal: A Case Study of Political Acculturation. What u will find is definitely not good face of King Tribhuwan and King Mahendra.

Let the myth evaporate.

WE no more need to celebrate FALGUN 7.

No way. No compromise on the freedom of expression.

Did you read *jhan charitrahin chelis* nepal declartion?

Here is my response.
Riposte of a Beau of Good Moral Character towards the Declaration of Jhan Charitrahin chelis

You juicy intellectuals with shaven crotch as well as those with long pubic hair, who are running cloak-and-dagger activities! Ah! You the ones without phallus (Let me say it. Why to say you have vagina? You don’t have penis, this is a fact.)

Unlike you I am not a hardliner. I am an individual, not a group. I won’t hide my identity. I am K sth.. C.sth. By profession, I am a scribe. This much for now Rest you find out.

You some among Pradhan, Sharma, Ranjit, Thapa…. I don’t know more names because my belle, a journalist who met you sometime at past in some place—for sure not a seedy bar as you have claimed when you had not declined to Jhan Charitrahin—denied to tell me the names. Look how ethical she is! How charitrawan she is!

I am not a lawyer. I am not an author. I don’t have journalistic background and I don’t work for INGOs. I am not a painter either….

Also, I also not a sexist. Not a masculinist by any chance. Sorry if I sound so. I am a beau with very good moral characters. . I don’t drink (…) and I don’t smoke (tobacco). Why do you count those meager puffs of black and green? More than that even at the age of 28, I have not experienced penetration. (Forget about those foreplays that never led to intercourse. Don’t count those eve-teasing, and forget about those molestations. You should not take into account those fondlings and smoochings.)

I don’t have any agenda, and I don’t declare Nepali men autonomous. Because I know though most of us are chauvinist we men need you women. To ride and for pride. For being taken care off and to take birth from. To make love and to be loved. Men is an evolved version of women. You take example of deer with horn, and doe without. Similarly, we men have penis and you do not. You have slit. Testes and ovaries are analogous however.

Apropos to your 12-point declarations, I have 36 things to say.

1. Yes, let’s make love not regression. Okay, sex boycott is over now. So shall we change the traditional posture of love-making? Let’s say eff off to Vatsyayana and his Kamasutra, and let’s try something different not to stick to regression.

2. Vision 36/36: Hey! Penises are great things to be in Parliament. You simply cannot prohibit those to enter the dark holes of the Vyawasthapika Sansad. Even if you try, the penises of different size, colour, texture, and expertise in the power-game -- representing different ethnicities, cults, regions, doctrines and experiences will pierce the slit. So better be wise and come to a compromise before confrontation. You want civil war, filles?

3. I have a solution. Look at this aphrodisiac number. 36. Not we won’t stick to 33 per cent. You will get three more per cent and men are ready to enjoy the same number game. The rest 28 goes to in-betweens. Not to gays and lesbians, by the way. Because they have either penises or vaginas. So they can be included in either your sex or ours. Inclusive democracy we will be practicing.

4. Okay, we can give some reservation to them from our quota. 3 of 33 of vagina quota to lesbians, and 3 of 33 of penis to gays.

5. Government bodies too will have same structure. Bust all around may be abuzz. You know, busts are worse at the time when you frat. And also when you put pad. (During periods.) You put on cotton plugs to absorb the seepage, but it sucks.

6. Naturalise foreign jwains? Does Danny want to take Nepali citizenship then? Or you others got divorced, baby? So you want to ride a bideshi ghoda in deshi ground? Umm, may be You found out a black horse during your Fulbright term.

7. I have American Green Card. Do I fall under that category of Bideshi? I have been living in the US for six years. Shall I apply? But I won’t give up Nepalese citizenship. I am proud to be whatever I am and wherever I hail from. One idea, let’s date first. Trial ride also same time. Agree?

8. CV idea is not good. Okay I will submit one, albeit. But where? By the way, shall I mention my size in the CV. (Mine is comparable to that of an Arabic horse. That is my qualification. You will grasp it very soon.)

9. Forget grey coats. Pink is our colour. Recently I watched a pondy movie. Pink was all around.

10. Again if you want to talk about the grey coasts. Let do it. Have you counted the number of the Maoist women who cashed in on the loss of their Comrade Penises?

11. You ask them to find new and virile MEMBER. Party command won’t be an obstacle, I believe.

12. Why do you ask them to speak their minds? I suggest them to speak their desire. Her can be the point of unleashing themselves from all uniformity. Hisila has Baburam. But those bebes do not have any. But I don’t know what they do in locked rooms.

13. Hey, you old and worn-out bimbos! You forgot to talk about kamrednis in cantonment. Not only the gray coat but also the camouflage should be taken into consideration.

14. Again, what sort of suggestion is that “Get rid of grey coats.” Girls, how can they who are against the beauty pageants be topless?

15. You luscious intellectuals have no wisdom! They are not like you. They are real jans (people) and janapratinidhis (people’s representatives.) Be ready for jana-karbahi, Comrade Yami backforced by Pawanman and the cadres will raid your den very soon.

16. Yes whipping is for brutes. These men have a natural whip hanged on our loin.. So they whip. But if women defy the action, they have to resort to some unnatural means of action.

17. You don’t need to sacrifice your rights. You can call for the up-side down position for men. Sorry for mentioning men’s position. You appeal for the reservation of women’s top posture. For sure, this feminist Parliament will unanimously pass your call. Then you first practice first with your paramours. Hey, never let them change the position.

18. New leadership for the New Nepal! But why that Jhankri bebe for the presidency? Sexy Sujata will kill you. She will ask for your resignation, chelis!

19. Take Women’s council to every home. Make every woman member of it. Make a different party of women. Go to constituent assembly polls.

18. Because of pervert parents craving for baby penis, our more than half population has no penis. Why not to take action against fathers? You can give an amnesty to all those who do not have penis.

19. Fill the Constituent Council with vaginas. It’s 100 per cent cunt. But don’t forget to ask for free vibrator. 100 per cent bust!

20. No comment on Maina Sunuwar case. You can ask for hanging of the rapist. I am with you. No excuse to the perpetrators.

21. Hey, you forgot to urge OHCHR regarding action against those who raped and killed Namita-Sunita. You should be bold enough to speak against late Shah and director Shah. Is anyone of you related to Mr. Shah living in Gyaneshwor? Thapa bebe should be, if I am not wrong. You in the Mau-samuha or this this new gang?

22. You can, by the way, advocate for rapes by women. You can train girls for seduction and rape.

23.One suggestion, You invite Manisha in your gang. Her former lover Mr. Ambassador is younger than this old Moriarty. Why not to take help of one of the former royal foreign ministers. Dr. Thapa. He has connections with army.

24.Sexiest man of Nepal Sunil Babu Pant? Yes, he is a man. I don’t know what is the size of his penis though.. But not the sexiest. How could you forget Prachanda the great? His sexy moustache! His appealing speeches. His charming voice. Overall, the unprecedented movement led by him.

25. You chelis are reactionaries! You are mandales. You did not vote for Prachanda. Shall the Maoists come to the power, you will be tried for you conspiracy and your nexus with imperialist America. They will have strong proofs against you: One of yours ulbright Scholarship, one of yours affairs with Canadian scribe working for BBC, one of your…….

26. Will donors retreat? They give so they take. They give dollars and they take nice and best women. Simple principle: give and take. By the way, after earning a lot for yourselves why you want kuires to back off? You jealous of young women? You worn-out of the game and you are old; that is why?

27. “Their country needs them more than your country reports do.” Here is see some truth. Donors, back off! You have made our economically independent and women ultramodern and. That may be why they are practicing “Use and throw” dictum.

28. One of my friends waited for his lover working in an INGO to marry. She originally from Jhapa exploited the Kathmanduite buddy. Took advantage of his connections and got a job in the INGO. They lived in a flat for some months. However, she abandoned him to live with and massage penis of a kuire of another INGO.

28. Donors back off and citizenship to bideshi jwains? Now where do your demands meet? Donors later may become jwains. They may need to run some NGOs to earn bread to feed their Nepali concubines.

30. Keep it up; Don’t give up! Keep it up; Don’t give up; Keep it up; Don’t give up! I urge (who?) that your demands never be taken seriously.

31. March 8? Will love to see another satirical twaddle again.

32. Bimbos! My challenge: Though fast food is at disposal of your males, can you zip your blouse for ever? Ah. You can. You want to say rub from outside? Right? You will put lingerie without zipper then!

33. “No joy till you capitulate.” Okay. Let’s see who will surrender first. Till then you find vibrators. One suggestion: IN Nepal there is load shedding these days. You can make maximum use of wax candle of appropriate size till then. Enjoy.

34. “Nationwide stove-and-blouse closure’ You financed by chowchow factories and fast food houses? “Nationwide chulo-ra-cholo bandh (stove-and-blouse closure).” You have nexus with Blue Diamond Society? You want all men to be homosexual?

34You tried to compare yourselves with other rebel groups that have both vaginas and penises working together. Does a lock open without a key? You are lock, we have got key. You will never succeed alone.

35. Men won’t say “languati-banda”, however. They are ready to welcome you in their crotch. You come soon and put off their G-string. Hurry up to feel the warmth of the loin!

35. You want to join the negotiations then. Ha ha ha. Don’t joke. You have guts to come above-ground?

If yes, I self-appoint myself from the side of the Nepal government to talk to you. Common bebes!

Jaya Purush, Jaya Nari!
