Hello and welcome to all my friends!
“Prakritiko sundar des Nepal aaunuhune sabai pahunalai hami hridayadheki nai nayano swagat gardachhu.
Namaste, Swagat chha yahalai!” – “We heartily welcome all our guests who step their feet on this sacred land of nature.
I am Binod Luitel from Nepal the land of heavenly beauty – doing my MBA from at Tasmac Pune. I love music and enjoy playing my guitar. Naturally gifted and lovingly cradled in the lap of the Himalayas and lovely view of the mighty Mt. Everest. Above all Nepal is the sacred land the birthplace of Lord Buddha.
Although very small in size, my country is large in terms of languages, cultures, religions and values. Nepal is well known for its rich cultural heritage. There are several different ethnic groups of people like Newar, Bhutia, Sherpa, Gurung, Magar, Tamang, Rai, and Limbu who have their own different mother languages and cultures. Diverse religious groups like Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, Janise,
and Sheikhs live together in peaceful harmony – “Unity in Diversity is Our Specialty.”
My people are very warm hearted, friendly and fun-loving. Those who visit Nepal will rarely ever forget the warmth and hospitality of the Nepalese people. The mountainous terrain has bestowed great deep rooted qualities in my people of simplicity, courage, trustworthiness, self respect and loyalty.
Lumbini is the place where the Buddha, known as the Tathagata (One who has found the Truth) was born. Lumbini is situated at the foothills of the Himalayas in modern Nepal. In ancient times, Lumbini was a beautiful garden full of green and shady Sal trees. It
is the place which should be visited and seen by a person of devotion to realize the nature of impermanence.
My country is geographically divided into 3 major parts viz. Himalayan, Hilly and Terai. So, climate varies according to its altitude. The snow clad and the tallest lofty mountains on the northern most part, lure people throughout the world. The Mountains are soothingly green with lakes, cascades, and valleys as the center of attraction. Many endangered species safely coexist and the wildlife reserves are the prime glory of the country. Cereal crops and vegetation in the fertile plain land of Terai region always give a feeling of richness to this nation.
Though economically still developing, the country is very rich in water and minerals. The perennial rivers like Koshi, Gandaki and Karnali are the wealth of nation. For adventurous experiencing
like river rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing, paragliding, bungee-jumping, there are plenty of places: rivers and hills.
Business Growth and Opportunities
Nepalese capital market is highly concentrated on the banking and financial sector companies. Apart from cottage industries and small scale industries, there are no multi-national companies in Nepal. Manufacturing industries are yet to emerge. Real Estate business is in the initial stages. So, right now, real estate sector companies are in great demand and are in centre of attraction in Nepalese securities market. Though the country is 2nd richest in water resources in the world, these resources have not yet been utilized.
There are great investment opportunities for those who dare to run even small Hydropower- Projects. Besides, those who are considering of running big industries and production sector companies in this land can have a great profit potential. The present unstable political scenario is the prime cause of dilemma for many such foreign investors.
Nevertheless, Nepal is always one of the best tourist destinations in the world. Therefore, Tourism Industries are always booming, but yet in niche market situation, and those who join in the tourism sectors, are undoubtedly blessed and can earn a fortune over here.
In short, those who want to sigh being close with the nature and beauty, those who want to live and talk with the nature, at least once in his/her life time, must visit Nepal not just because it is one the top 10 the most beautiful countries in the world, it is far more an incredible country of being in heaven with a feeling of glory and greatness.
“Namari Bache, Daibale Sache, Pheri Vetaula,
“Jaha chhan buddaka aankha, snigdha santa ra sundar”! – “If we are destined by god, to see you again. The holy, innocent and peaceful eyes of Buddha are always here to welcome you, even if I am gone”
