Unscientific Proverbs in Nepali Literature

Proverbs are widely used in Nepalese society. Proverbs really give sweetness to the expression and language. But they are very funny if they do not carry scientific meaning. In this article, I am going to present some famous proverbs in Nepalese literature which are bitterly unscientific.

1. Ghati Heri Haad Nilnu {swallowing the bone according to the throat}
Who swallows bone? I am a vegetarian. I don’t know what people do with bone. However as per my knowledge people throw bone and eat meat.
2. Badarko Haatma Nariwal {Coconut on the hand of a monkey}
Does a monkey like coconut? I think not. Then what is this proverb doing with any situation?
3. Jun Goruko Sing Chhaena Usakai Nam Tikhe {An ox with no horn is being called horny}
Is there any ox in the world with no horn? If there is, please send me a picture.
4. Aanti Chhora lae Baagh le Khadaina {A tiger does not eat a courageous man}
Who said? Tiger does not judge a person like that. It attacks anyone.
5. Baagh ko Mukh Khaye Pani Ratai Nakhaye Pani Ratai { A tiger has red mouth regardless he eats or not}
Can you please tell me which tiger has red mouth?

Now some mostly used phrases and idioms in the society.
1. Marna Nasake ko Murdo {A dead not being able to die}
I think someone is dead after death. If someone is not able to die, he is alive not dead.
2. Haat ma Dahi Jamaunu {Freezing curd on hand}
Do you know anyone who can do that?
3. Bhat Khanu {Eating rice}
Rice is not taken alone. It is taken with pulse and vegetables.
4. Geet Herne {Watching song}
Song is not watched, it is listened.
5. Gadi Bata Jharidinu {Pushing from the vehicle}
Haaa, really funny! If you say like that you should be thrown away from the vehicle. Are you sure you are requesting for that?

I think government and the concerned people should be conscious to update the linguistic property of the country.

What do Scientists Say about End of the World?

We have been predicting for many years that the world will face an end within 2085 A.D. We also have said that the judgement is not like people think. Newton says the end of the world is just an end of an era and the beginning of another which begins right after the establishment of peace in the world. We support the theory of Newton. After all we believe that the world will naturally face a partial destruction.

We admit that prediction of anything either end of the world or any other thing seems to be a bit superstitious and unscientific. However tons of evidences like our past history, present condition of the earth and the statements of famous and established scientists have compelled most of us to believe on the end of the world.

We don’t recommend anyone to believe on astrology. However we highly trust psychology. So we had made our prediction on the basis of psychology. But our prediction can be supported by Physics too. Below are the world famous scientists whose theory matches with our belief:

1. Sir Isaac Newton: Sir Isaac Newton is the greatest scientist of England who is the founder of the law of gravitational force. He had done long research on the end of the world with combined study of Bible and Physics. He concludes that the world will end on or after 2060 A.D. However it won’t be the destruction of earth. It is end of old era and the beginning of new era with establishment of peace.

2. Sir Martin Reese: Sir Martin Reese is a very famous scientist. He says that the human race has fifty- fifty chances to survive in 21st century.

3. Elbert Einstein: Everyone knows Einstein. But a few knows that he also believed on the dooms day. For the protection he along with another scientist had appealed people of the world to save humanity. According to him if we save humanity, we can save the earth.

4. Stephen Hawking: Hawking is the greatest living scientist after Einstein. He extremely believes that the universe is still expanding. It will stop in a certain level then it returns in the previous stage.

There are many other scientists who have predicted the chance of apocalyptic in this century. The above mentioned scientists are a few of them whose statements are still famous in the world.

6 Differences between Two Google Boys

World believe on Science. But some people dare to break the law of even Physics and Biology. Kautilya Pandit from Haryana of India and Aditya Dahal from Kathmandu of Nepal are the two big examples. They have threatened the modern Science by their extra ordinary talent. Because they beat even Google, the biggest search giant in knowledge. Both are featured by their native News Channels. Both are known with the title Google Boy. Because they answer faster than Google. Yeah, faster than Google. Google sometimes delays due to network problem{I heard laughter at the background}. Being similar in age, name, fame, religion and talent, Aditya and Kautilaya do not share some features in common. What are they? Let's read.

1. Aditya is 4 years old and Kautilya is 6 years old.
2. Kautilya was normal from the beginning but Aditya was not able to speak and walk up to 2 and half years old.
3. Aditya’s talent is sudden and said to be miraculous but Kautilya developed it by reading books.
4.  Aditya is claimed to have capacity to see future but Kautilya has not claimed such thing.
5. Kautilya is specialised in Geography, General Knowledge and Politics and Aditya is expert at speaking different languages.
6.  Aditya has never been admitted in school whereas Kautilya studies in class 1 in his father's school.

This sort of talent is still secret of Science on the earth. Some psychologists try to shut the mouth of people by saying the talent as a type of psychological disorder. But I don’t think so. Moreover, many psychological disorders are excluding from the list of disorders every year. Lazy people close this topic by naming it a miracle and the intellectual people can’t dare to accept the truth. As a result there are so many secrets on the earth which are yet to be revealed. Let’s hope we will get the answer one day.

Kautilya has got several awards and rewards in India. He had become host in KBC of Amitabh Bachchan. He was featured in several news channels and online portals. Similarly, Aditya was also brought in the flash by a news channel of Nepal. He is also scattered everywhere in the cyber world. We can hope huge contribution from these two children later in the future. Let's wait for the time.

7 Types of Ghost in Nepal and India

Nepal and India are two of the most famous countries for real ghost stories. Here people hugely believe on underworld. 1 in every 1000 people has experience of encountering with ghost. We had done a small research on the people of Nepal and India who claimed to have seen ghost. They are Nar Bahadur Kshetry, Mohan Lal Shah, Ajay Shrivastav, Sakila Khatoon, Tanka Prasad Kafle, Rupesh Basnet, Sanjay Choudhary and Ranvir Panchal. According to those people’s account, there are 7 types of ghost in Nepal and India.

1. Kichkanya: This ghost is too famous. When a girl dies before marriage, she becomes Kichkanya. She makes boys fall in love with her. Then the boy will start being thin day by day and ultimately he dies. This ghost has opposite feet. She is very beautiful and she has no flesh on her back. If one secretly binds a thread on her backbone and follows her, she will go to her place and becomes invisible inside a bone. If the bone is born, her existence will be no more. This ghost is famous in Makawanpur and Chitwan districts of Nepal.
2. Murkatta: People in Nepal often say Murkatta while scolding other. Murkatta ghost is said to be very dangerous. It has no head. It has eyes and mouth on its chest. It is found especially in forest. It sometimes comes to home too especially at night. It can be easily chased if one tries to scare it.
3. White horse: it completely looks like a horse and it runs on the way at 3 o'clock in the morning. If anyone sees it will die on the spot.
4. Chhauda: Chhauda is a Bhojpuri word which means child. So the ghost is in the form of child. Especially children see it doing different activities and playing tricks. Then the children become sick. This ghost is not so dangerous. If one sees baby in dream, it is also Chhauda playing trick with the dreamer.
5. Veer: Veer is a type of ghost which is like a faithful servant for his master. When it is controlled by someone with the power of tantra mantra, it will do all household and field works with its magic. But if it is imbalanced, it will cause mental problems up to many generations of the master. It can walk oppositely on the ceiling. It can also plough a bulk of land within a matter of a night.
6. Chudail: This is living ghost. It transforms into cat and sucks the people at night. It can cause sickness and sometimes death of humans and animals. It is powerless if its hair was cut. It specially attack the people who sleep by putting hand on their own chest.
7. Pichas: This type of ghost lives on the blood of humans. It appears only at night. It can not stay on sun light. It is very dangerous. It is man hunter.

Do you know other types of ghosts? If you do, write your experience shortly in the comment. Your little effort can contribute hugely to others for the further research. We highly expect that you will cooperate with us.

{Disclaimer: We don’t believe on the existence of ghost and we are not promoting it. This article is only for educational purpose. Don’t take it as one of the parameters to believe on ghost and spirit.}

About Jhuma Pratha

I described about Deuki Pratha in my previous article. In this article I am presenting Jhuma Pratha which is one of the popular but disappearing traditions of Nepal. I hope it will give a good education to all. Unlike the article about Deuki Pratha, this article has been written for the purpose of social changes.

Jhuma Pratha is one of the typical traditions of Buddhists which is prevalent specially in the Himalayan Region of Nepal. This system is particularly seen in the eastern part of Nepal. Mostly it is common in Sherpa community. It is is the system in which second girl child is offered to the monastery. She spends whole life in the monastery without marriage. The child born from the girl becomes Lama of the Monastery.

According to a blog, Sherpa also offers a second son to the monastery. He is called Dhawa. This is really an amazing system. Ang Temba Sherpa, a local resident of Namche Bajzar area says, 'This is our old tradition and we want to continue.'' But his educated son does not agree with him. He says that this system should be reformed.

This is similar to Deuki Pratha of Hinduism. However it is a bit different than Deuki Pratha. For instances, only second child is offered in Jhuma Pratha. Similarly, a Jhuma can also get education if she likes. Deuki Pratha is practised in Hilly regions whereas Jhuma Pratha is practised in the Himalayan region. Though there is no clear history when and how this system began, it seems to be influenced by Deuki Pratha of Hindus. Both Deuki and Jhuma Pratha are similar to Devadashi System of India. In Nepal, Hindus and Buddhists are exchanging culture from ages. There is notable tolerance among them.

There is also a film named Jhuma in Nepali Film Industry which clearly deals with Jhuma. Unlike Deuki Pratha, Jhuma Pratha is listed as one of the Social Problems of Nepal by the government of Nepal. Many NGOs are working for the reformation.

Amazing History of Deuki Pratha

Deuki pratha is the system of offering a girl child to the temple to collect religious merits. According to Wikipedia, parents generally offer 5 to 6 years old child to the temple. Some wealthy parents buy other poor child to earn merit by offering to the temple. After dedication, the Deuki has to spend whole life in the temple by taking care of the temple. She has to live on the offerings offered by worshippers.

Deuki is deprived of many rights like marriage, education, etc. It is believed that sexual relationship with Deuki can lead to religious advantages. So Deukis are physically exploited by priests and worshippers. Though the country code of Nepal 2020 BS has clearly banned prostitution on the basis of any custom and tradition, this system is still alive in the society. Illegal children born from Deuki hardly can get citizenship. Deuki pratha has been formally eradicated by the government of Nepal. However, there is still sign of this custom in western and far western development region of Nepal. NGO like Jandesh has played a vital role to abolish this system by rehabilitating the Deukis. However there are still around 350 Deukis in Nepal. This system is declining day by day due to the impact of education and also some Deukis are eloping from the temples.

There is interesting historical background behind Deuki Pratha. According to an online forum, in 17th century, the Doti state of Nepal faced several problems like natural calamities and epidemics. Some religious priests suggested that if the king of Doti, Nagi Malla offered his daughter to the temple of Bageshor Mahadev, the problem would be solved. Then after king Nagi Malla offered his daughter to the temple. His daughter spent whole life in the temple. In this way the Deuki system emerged in the society.

Several stories have been created on the basis of Deuki Pratha. There is also a movie ‘Deuki’ in Nepalese film industry which advocates for the rights of the Deukis in Nepal. According to the survey the number of Deukis has increased from 1992 to 2010. But now a day this number has decreased due to the impact of high education and strict law as well as successful role of the NGO.

Krishna and Radha Appear to Dance Every Night in Vrindavan Why No one Dare to See

‘Madhuvan Main Jo Kanhaiya Kisi Gopi Se Mile
 Kabhi Muskaaye Kabhee Chhede Kabhee Baat Kare
 Radha Kaise Na Jale, Radha Kaise Na Jale
 Aag Tan Man Me Lage
 Radha Kaise Na Jale, Radha Kaise Na Jale’

Have you ever heard this song? This song says that Radha, Krishna and Gopinis meet everyday in Madhuvan. Do you think it is real?

Yes, it is true that Radha, Krishna and Gopinis appear every night in Madhuban. They dance together as they did in Dwapar Yuga.

It is extremely believed by the people of Vrindavan that Krishna and Radha every night appear and play Raas Lila in Madhuban. But they no one dare to meet Radha and Krishna. Do you dare?

Madhuban forest is popularly known as Nidhivan. It lies in Vrindavan city of Mathura district in Uttar Pradesh, India. This is the place where Lord Krishna played his pastimes in Dwapar Yuga. But do you believe he along with Radha and other Gopinis still appears there? This story has been featured by Aja Tak Channel of India also.

Nidhiban is surrounded by Bhusal {Tulsi} trees. In the middle of the forest there is a temple of Radha and Krishna. There is a one room Kunj also in a separate spot where Radha and Krishna take rest after dancing. The priest keeps brushes and waters every night before closing the temple. In the morning they seem to be used.

If you reach Nidhiban, you can see couple of trees connected everywhere. It is said that each tree represents Radha and Krishna. The forest is full of monkeys. People say that all trees become Gopinis at night. And the monkeys and any other animals and insects will disappear.

No human has witnessed the Raas Lila of Krishna and Radha in this forest. It is popularly said that those who went there at night to reveal the secret of Radha and Krishna, never came back. Some died and some became mad. Some were not in condition to describe what was happening inside the forest.

During the day, the spot is full of devotees. After 5 PM the temple will be closed and after worshipping at 8 PM, even priests don’t dare to enter there. Do you want to go there?

Why did Sati Curse Nepal?

I have already said in my previous article that Sati who cursed Nepal and Sati who burned herself for God Shiva are two different personalities. In this article I will tell you why Sati cursed Nepal.

Bhimsen Thapa, the husband of Sati was accused of attempting to murder Queen Samrajya Laxmi by giving poison. The poison was mistakenly replaced and Prince Devendra died instead. Bhimsen Thapa was arrested. His post was snatched. But he was proven innocent.

Later Ran Jung Padey Group reopened the case and imprisoned Bhimsen Thapa. He was punished of life imprisonment on the basis of fake documents. But the Pandey group was still hungry for Bhimsen Thapa.

1. Bhimsen Thapa was given severe torture in prison.
2. Rumour spread that the wife of Bhimsen Thapa Sati would be made walk naked in the Kathmandu valley.
3. After listening the rumour about wife, Bhimsen Thapa hit Khukuri on his own neck as deadly attack.
4. He was injured and suffered for 9 days and died.
5. The corpse of Bhimsen Thpa was rounded in the valley marking humiliation.
6. The corpse was made into several pieces and let the jackal, dogs and vulture eat.
7. The administration did not permit for death rites.
8. The family members were imprisoned.
9. Their property was snatched.
10. The family members were banned to hold job up to 7 generations.
11. Thread {Janai} was taken from the Thapa Group.
12. The women members of Bhimsen Thapa were made to wake with bared foot from Kathmandu to Barlang and Barlang to Kathmandu as humiliating punishment.

After this pitiable event, Sati, the wife of Bhimsen Thapa was so frustrated from the administration of Nepal that she cursed Nepal to suffer with political, economic and social problems forever. She cursed Nepal never to be developed. Nepal still has many social, economic and political problems. This country is walking behind. Is it effect of the curse of Sati or just a coincidence?

Yeti: the Living Monster of Nepal

Some children in a Sherpa family gathered around their grandfather to listen adventurous stories. The grandfather said, ‘’Today I will tell you the stories of Yeti.’’ Now all the children became excited. They sat around the grandfather with excitement and fear. First the grandfather introduced the Yeti, ‘Yeti is called big foot in English because it has very big foot. Yeti is also called Him Manav in Nepali. Him means snow and Manav means man. It means snow man. It lives in snow. It is similar to polar bear. It is taller than man. It is about 9 feet tall and its weight is around 200 kilo. It has red eyes. It hunts Yak and Sheep. Its body is full of fur.’’

‘Where was the Yeti found first?’ A child asked. The grandfather replied, ‘Yeti was first noticed in Nepal. So Nepal is probably the origin place of Yeti. Now Yeti was believed to be found in Russia, India, Bhutan, China and Mongolia. However the research for Yeti should be specially centralized in the mountainous parts of Nepal because Yeti has been mostly noticed in Nepal.’’ Another child asked, ‘How can you say that Yeti was mostly found in Nepal?’ ‘Let me tell you the history of the detection of Yeti.  First time in 1832, B.H. Hodgson and a Nepali guide saw Yeti in the northern hill of Nepal. In 1951 Eric Shipton took photographs of the footprints of Yeti while climbing Mt. Everest. In 1953 Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa found the footprints of Yeti while scaling Mt. Everest. In 1954 John Angelo Jackson took the photographs of Yeti while trekking from Mt. Everest to Kanchanjunga. In 1970, Don Whillans claimed that he saw Yeti in Annapurna mountain of Nepal. In 1974 a Yeti tried to kidnap a village girl of Nepal. Are not theses proofs enough to say that Yeti is mostly found in Nepal?’  ‘Yes.’ All children admitted.

‘Yeti has been shown as monster in many stories and movies. However some movies like Mummy shows Yeti to be kind and helpful towards humans. However Yeti is still a monster in Hollywood movies. The adventurous stories of Yeti are famous in Nepal and Bhutan. Some researchers have described their adventurous journey in the mountainous region where they had been helped by Yeti.’

‘Is Yeti really existed?’ Another child asked again. The grandfather said, ‘I have already said that many footprints of Yeti have been detected. And also many researchers claim that they have found Yeti on their journey. In 2013 Yeti conference took place in Russia where scientists presented the fur of Yeti. However, these proofs are not enough to prove Yeti. There are more proofs against the existence of Yeti. The biggest proof is that there is no real photo or video of Yeti. Only finding footprints and fur are not enough.’’ In this way grandfather gave the introduction of Yeti. After introducing the Yeti, the grandfather started to tell the imaginary stories about it.

The Story of My Research on Witchcraft

Do you believe on witchcraft? If we do a worldwide poll, the number believing on witchcraft will be tremendous.

I asked an old man, ‘Do you believe on witch?’ He blindly replied, ‘Why not? Sure.’ Similarly I asked same question to a highly educated man. He replied without thinking a second, ‘No, never.’ I fall between those two men.

I don’t say I am confused. But I trust that I should find reasonable cause to believe or not to believe on anything. That is a witch, ghost or any other thing.

I have written a numerous articles on the topic of witchcraft in the past. You can simply go through the witchcraft channel form the right sidebar of this blog.

Now let’s enter today’s topic. Today I am going to present a real event of my life that will compel you to think a witch may be real too.

I am taking you 14 years back. Are you ready? I was under 16 at that time. One day my friend called me in his house which was in a remote village. As I liked visiting new places, I happily accepted his invitation. I was staying for a night there.

My friend, his 6 years old brother and I slept on a big flat bed at night. My friend was at the edge. The 6 years old child was in the middle and I was at the window side. We talked up to 11 PM and slept. I was just going to fall asleep. It means I was in the state of alteration. Someone from outside the window gave me a command by whispering slowly, ‘Hey, go to another side.’ I was confirming whether it was real or only my delusion. He again repeated. Anyway I did not need any disturbance. So, I exchanged the place with the child and slept in the middle.

I was thinking it as just my hallucination. But next hour something strange happened. I was in a deep sleep. My subconscious mind gave a signal that somebody is about to attack from the window. Before I responded, something strange like a black shadow entered in the body of the child. I had waked up exactly on time. The child began to scream. My friend also got up. He was looking us with his scaring eyes. He asked, ‘What happened?’ The child was breathing abnormally and he was still crying in dream. I kept my hand on his forehead. He stopped uttering. His breathing came in normal state step by step. Then we slept again.

In the morning we did not say anything to the child. But he was off. His mother noticed it. She pointed his eyes and said, ‘You have been caught by an evil spirit. Let me see.’ She showed a blue mark on the neck of the child and said, ‘Look, a witch has sucked here last night.  I will take you to a witch doctor.’

This amazing event is really true and I am referencing the event here so that it helps other paranormal researchers for the research. This incidence clearly states that there is existence of witch or evil spirit in the society. However this evidence is not enough to prove the existence of the underworld. I still suspect coincidence may have played a vital role in this story.

National Discovery doesn't promote superstition and blind faith. This article is only for educational purpose. The myth of witchcraft has been spread from Asia to Africa and America to Europe. Moreover, I have already said in my previous article on witchcraft that Witchcraft is a commercial and traditional profession in Kenya. So, I believe that underestimating a belief without researching scientifically is also a superstition. So through this article I appeal all paranormal researchers to stick their eyes on this topic.
