Report of Satsang
A nation has lost it’s economy providing and declaring national holiday in the name of Democracy Day but it is a question in people in general where is the demo (people)’s cracy (rights) ? Is it not a great economic loss to our country celebrating 2 days one Democracy day and Loktantra day Jestha 15 , 2066 (May 29 2009) and Falgun 7, 2066 in a same year? If we are celebrating a republican day demolishing 241 years long royal regime with the help of Nepalese people’s IInd movement. Can not 104 years long Rana regime fall under 241 years Shah dynasty’s period?
