I've been her for a while now, but I would like to use this opportunity to introduce something that is important to me.

I am now 32. But I was, like every other men, once a boy. One set free to over-indulge. Like every other man I had many choices, sometimes good...sometimes not so good, but I always lived by them.
Never to question the what if but rather the what now.

I am a free man, disconnected from fear and over driven by inspiration. The world has become my petrie dish. Simply, because I choose. I choose to be a good man.

And I do so because of another. A man a world away. A man that once wrote to me , "You are a champion of life, try not to be a great man but be sure to be a good man."

His name was Krisha Prassad Bhatterai.

He was a man of purity, of hope. His ever-presence was one of acceptance and understanding. Unity with the unknown is possible by its familiarity. Control of the unkown was simply the essence of his being.

He was a man that I learned to respect at an early age and one that saw me through the coming of my own.

Krishna Prassad Bhatterai died in March of this year.

I wish that he could know my intentions.


Bhattarai had actively participated in a long struggle to modernize the Nepalese political system, aiming to transform a society that was isolated for centuries from the outside world.

He started politics to end the 104-year-rule of the Rana Dynasty. During the political movement of 1950 to overthrow the Rana autocracy, initiated by the Bairgania Conference of the Nepali Congress on 26–27 September 1950 (Ashvin 10-11, 2007 BS), he was in charge of armed group Congress Mukti Sena fighting in Gorkha district.
This armed struggle was initiated by the Nepali Congress, of which he was founding member. The armed revolution by the Nepali Congress was supported by King Tribhuvan, who was in exile, and by Indian and Burmese socialists. The armed revolution ultimately brought an end to the 104-year-rule of the Rana Dynasty on February 18, 1951 (Falgun 7, 2007 BS).
This day is celebrated as Democracy Day and is a public holiday in Nepal.

After the first parliamentary election of 1959, at the age of 36, he became Speaker of lower house of parliament, though he was not an elected member.
After the coup of 1960, Bhattarai was held without trial for eight years at the Sundarijal Military Detention Camp.[1]

Bhattarai was nominated as the officiating President of the Nepali Congress on February 12, 1976 (Falgun 1, 2025 BS) by then party supremo Jananayak BP Koirala.
He held this post for more than 25 years, during which time he was a key figure in Nepal's democratic movement.
He was elected President of the Nepali Congress by the Eighth National Conference of the Nepali Congress, held in January 1992 (Falgun 2049 B S).

I understand that there is not much to say.

I only hope that you remember this man's name and one day look deeper into the way he lived his life.

Thank-you for reading.
