About : 

  • The Panchayat democracy without parties has made the Nepalese cohesive like the bees in a hive. As bees collect honey from various flowers, so too, we have to gather knowledge and skills by travelling far and near and bring home such techniques and know-how as are suited to the needs of our country. It is only with such devotion to perseverance that will be able to create a viable modern independent Nepal.” – H. M. King Birendra
