National Anthem Of Nepal:
After the unanimous decision on May 19, 2006, by the House of Representatives (Pratinidhi Sabha) of the Kingdom of Nepal, the old national anthem was suspended. The National Anthem Selection Task Team (NASTT) on 30 November 2006, selected poet Byakul Maila’s (real name: Pradeep Kumar Rai) song as the new national anthem of Nepal. The new national anthem was selected from a total of 1272 submissions made from across the country. It was officially approved on 20 April 2007. On August 3, 2007, “Sayaun Thunga Phool Ka Hami “ was officially declared as Nepal’s national anthem by the House of Representatives.
राष्ट्रिय गान
सयौं थूंगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली, सार्वभौम भइ फैलिएका, मेची-महाकाली । प्रकृतिका कोटी-कोटी सम्पदाको आंचल, वीरहरुका रगतले, स्वतन्त्र र अटल.
ज्ञानभूमि, शान्तिभूमि तराई, पहाड, हिमाल. अखण्ड यो प्यारो हाम्रो मातृभूमि नेपाल । बहुल जाति, भाषा, धर्म, संस्कृति छन् विशाल, अग्रगामी राष्ट्र हाम्रो, जय जय नेपाल ।
Words: Byakul Maila (pen name of Pradeep Kumar Rai)
