KATHMANDU: A book entitled 'Bideshma Nepali Safaltaka Katha' (Nepali Success Stories Abroad) by journalist Sharad Adhikari has been released.
The book dwells on the Nepali Diaspora's experiences of success, ups and down including the stories of 60 people from the Nepali community residing in 55 different countries including America, Japan, and Australia, in Europe and in the gulf.
Releasing the book amidst a programme in the Capital on Tuesday, Prime Minister Jhalanath Khanal said the completion of the peace process and the constitution drafting process is the first priority of the government.
Also speaking at the book launching ceremony, former Finance Minister Dr Ramsharan Mahat urged the government to appoint the new Vice Chancellor for the Tribhuvan University in a free and fair manner.
Another former Finance Minister Surendra Pandey said development of the country has not been possible due to lack of positive thinking at the leadership level.
Diplomat Dr Bhekh Bahadur Thapa, Non-Resident Nepali Association founding member Bhim Udas and journalist Rabindra Mishra also commented on the book.
Currently, without those living in India, an estimated 3,500,000 NRNs reside in various countries across the globe.
