Here’s what our celebrities have to say who participated in the event
Anil Keshary Shah
More than that, I am happy to see that Nepalese people care. When it came to keeping the name of their country high, all people gathered together to make this happen. People are here standing in a lines since early morning. The commitment, the enthusiasm of people, its very nice.
One thing that I can infer from this event is – its these under 25 aged group people only who love Nepal. They are the future of Nepal.”
“I am feeling very happy. If this event became successful, we will have our name written in Guniess Book of World record for another new thing.
Mostly, I want to thank god because our Nation flag is secure now. Politicians are onto changing it. Our flag was going to collapse. But this event now will let our country be known all over the world. And our flag won’t lose its identity. We got chance to show our national flag to the world.”
“I am feeling very excited to be in the event that is going to make our country famous worldwide.

I am very thankful to the organizers for organizing such a great event. I am very happy our national flag is safe now and it is going to be renowned all over the world. I am also happy that our politicians could not be successful in their mission of changing such a unique flag; the flag which carries our identity. For those politicians who say that our national flag should be changed, I say – they are the one who are to be be changed. Not our national flag but such politicians should be thrown out.”
“I am feeling very proud at this moment.
We Nepali are moving forward. Someone just wrote name of Nepal in Gunnies Book organizing longest talk show, someone did it being shortest man in the world and now this event. one after another, we are being known to the world.
One thing that I miss in this event is the proper participation of our politicians. Our politicians should also have come to this big event so that they would know the importance, the value of our flag.”
“I am feeling that we Nepalese people are very true, very loyal towards our country. For our nation every one would get united.
Through this event our youths are giving a bigger lesson to all of us that anything can happen when youths unite. Together we are making this event successful, we are making our country famous.
The event is going very well. This huge mass is doing great. But i somehow see management is becoming little difficult. I am feeling sad to see children standing outside in a long line since long time to get inside. They must have got tired.”
“I am very excited as this event is happening now, as it is coming true.
When i first heard about the event,I was quite skeptic regarding people. I had doubt if so huge mass of people would come here today. But I am amazed to see that people are not just coming but they are coming with such a commitment to make this event happen. I had not expected this big crowd.
From today’s event one thing that I can infer is – Nationalism is a thing that brings Nepali people together. Plus, if positive energies like – youths gather together, then events bring result. All these people are dragged here today by our national flag. I am happy to see the involvement of youth here.
Another thing is , its very difficult to manage people. When we organize our meetings in public place, then we feel very difficult to manage people. We wouldn’t have this huge crowd but also it would be hectic. But here volunteers and organizers are managing this group of 35000+ people. I am amazed to see this.
I have been hearing people blaming politicians regarding the issue of changing national flag. But one thing people need to be clear of is – only 10% politicians were in favor of changing our national flag. 90% were not in support of that and that 90% worked. So you can see the result. Our flag hasn’t changed. People need to be well informed about this.
At present context new symbols are being needed to connect people. We need to celebrate our diversity. At one time, monarchy was the symbol. And now, I see flag can be that symbol to bring people together, to unite our nation. Because when it comes to national flag, irrespective of any caste, any religion people come together. Our unique national flag can be our symbol of unity.”
Kshitiz Raj Lohani
Its all the 1100 volunteers, 300/400 securities and the participants coming here are the one who are making this event possible. We organizers are just moderating the event. Regarding management, its being easier than we had thought. Managing more than 3500 people is not a small thing but yet, it’s going on and going very good.”

I am really feeling very proud to be a part of this grand event.This indeed has proved and imparted the lesson how strength unity is.. Here i see all most all present here for this grand event are Nepalese Youths. So today’s youths can be the well leading leaders of the country. Recognizing Nepal in an International era including 35000 + participants in itself is the heroic deed of Nepalese youths. This can also be a great lesson to today’s leaders running the country. Actually, from this,it is crystal clear that,if u dream big,we can achieve that.But for this firm determination,hard work and team work is the most.
