Nepal – the country of Mt. Everest and Buddha


Greater Nepal is a concept referring to the state of Nepal extending beyond present boundaries to include territories ceded to the British East India Company under the Sugauli Treaty that ended the Anglo-Nepalese War in 1814–16. The idea of a modern Nepali state covering the same territories motivates some Nepali nationalist groups.

Under the Sugauli Treaty, the Nepalese kingdom had ceded conquered territories that spanned from the Teesta River in the east, which are constituted in the modern Indian states of Punjab[citation needed], Himachal Pradesh[citation needed] and Uttarakhand and including places such as Almora, Pathankot, Kumaon, Dehradun, Garhwal, Sirmur and Shimla and Kangra, located to the west of the Sutlej River in the modern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. Nepal also ceded control over kingdom of Sikkim, whose local ruler, the Chogyal, had supported the British in the war. The re-acquisition of these territories is a goal held by several Nepali political groups, especially the parts of then Nepal integrated into India only because of the consequence of the Sugauli treaty concluded between British India and the Nepalese government.

The ideal of “Greater Nepal” motivates not only some Nepali nationalists but a majority of Nepalese academians, who seek to extend the boundaries of present-day Nepal to include the very territories ceded under the Sugauli Treaty. Some Nepali politicians and activists accuse India of usurping Nepali territory and using the present border and territorial situation to dominate Nepal, which in the opinion of Nepali nationalists can be overcome by a “Greater Nepal.” Most law graduates claim that the Sugauli Treaty became null and void on August 15, 1947 when India obtained her independence from British Raj and by the 1950 Indo-Nepal Friendship Treaty. Several Nepalese publications and activities claim the lost territories must be recovered since the Sugauli Treaty has in effect been void by article 8 of the 1950 Indo-Nepal Friendship Treaty and Anglo-Nepal Treaty.

    History of Nepal has been tweaked and twisted with the time, favoring contemporary rulers. It is a pleasure to be revealed the truth of war-monger Prithvi Narayan Shah’s unmanly characteristics to snatch and destroy the whole economic system in Asia proving the fact that managing the business of country is not their niche and others who have been in Kathmandu Valley for that matter for quite sometime. Conclusions can be drawn easily that the Mallas were not only the rulers but also the best business managers who kept Nepal a pivotal business location.

    General citizens of Nepal are tired of the chaotic political, economical, educational etc situations brought upon by almost the same genre of selective and/or elective candidates as that of the dynasties after the constructive rulers of Kathmandu Valley, why not wind our history back to the best times and let the once successful people take control of the country and respectfully handle the businesses……
