  1. Introduction

2.1. Bibeksheel Nepali

2.1.1 Who we are?

A group of concerned, committed Bibeksheel Nepalis who have come together to uplift Nepal from its current deteriorating state and free ourselves from the major sources of the evils that plague our society.  In short, we are not talkers, we are the doers. And that is why we do not just write or go sloganeering about our values and beliefs but instead reflect them in our actions.

We are enthusiastic youths who are disciplined, self-confident, capable, moral and visionary with a dynamic organization. We are eager to build a prosperous future of our country and fellow countrymen. We are both the present and the future of this country.

2.1.2. Why are we here?

We strongly believe that only responsible citizens and accountable leadership can build a peaceful and prosperous Nepal. We will not wait for alternative to come and solve our problems but we are trying to be a part of the alternative. Our thoughts and ideologies might differ, but if our action itself is “Bibeksheel” (one that is pragmatic and with common-sense wisdom), then whatever path we take, it will lead us to a peaceful and prosperous Nepal. That is why we are here.

2.1.3 How we work?

With our 8 pillars, BibekSheel envisions to build a peaceful and prosperous Nepal.

  • Responsibility : Responsible Nepali
  • Accountability: Accountable Nepali
  • Prosperity: A prosperous Nepali
  • Empowerment: Empowered Nepali
  • Freedom: A free Nepali
  • Diversity – United Nepali
  • Citizen-centric rule: A ‘servant’ Government
  • Pragmatism : An open and evolving Nepal
  1. The Campaign

3.1 Overview

3.1.1  Yuwa Aghi Sarcha, Desh Aghi Badcha; Rastra Nirmaan ko lagi 3     crore paila

3.1.2 About Padyatra (Rastra Nirmaan ko lagi 3 karod paila)

Calling all the determined youths to unite together for the development of the nation, on 14th of Baishak 2070, Bibeksheel Nepali started its nationwide walkathon campaign from all 14 zones of Nepal  up to Lumbini; the holy birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha. Various youth representatives from different walks of life participated in the campaign with a genuine enthusiasm. After 28 days of walking from various zones, on 11th of Jestha, the campaigners reached Lumbini and thus on Buddha Purnima (full moon day; birthday of Lord Gautam Buddha), taking an oath to develop the country, the national campaign  “युवा अघि सर्छ, देश अघि बढ्छ”  officially was started. It was assumed that all these walkers will walk 3 crore plus steps, counting every step of individual.

3.1.2 Objectives of the campaign:

  • To change hopelessness spreaded all over the country into hopefulness
  • To identify and unite all capable youths of the country and encourage them to take the leading role on nation building.
  • To build a modern political alternative with the help of well-cultured youth from all over the country.
  • To recognize ‘doers’ not a ‘talkers’ around the country  and to honour them
  • To identify dreams of general citizens and to commit for the change of those dreams into reality.   
  • To guide the national politics towards solution through youth participation.

Here are some dreams collected during padyatra:

 

सुमन राई, मोरङ

 

हाल म ३३ वर्षको भएँ,  अहिले सम्म मैले विचार र सिद्धान्तले धेरै राम्रा तर काम र कर्तब्यले निपुण मानिस भेटेको जस्तो मलाई लाग्दैन त्यसकारण मेरो एउटा सपना छ, म त्यस्तो काम र कर्त्यव्यले समेत असल मान्छे बन्न सकुँ।

 

ओम प्रकाश कुशलहा, बिरगंज

 

मेरो विचारमा बिरगंज नाका र भन्सारबाट जति हाम्रो नेपाललाई राजस्व संकलन हुन्छ त्यसको १०% मात्रै पर्सा जिल्लामा  लगानी गरिदिएको भए सायद बीरगंजको यस्तो अवस्था हुनेथिएन  बरु बिरगंज नेपालको एउटा  सफा र राम्रो बिरगंज हुन्थियो होला।

 

किशोर सुबेदी- मनहरी-०७, ज्यामिरे, मकवानपुर,९८४५१२४०७७

 

सम्बृद्ध तथा भौतिक पुर्बधारको विकाश गरि उन्नतिको बाटोमा लम्किएको हेर्न चाहन्छु। युवा जनशक्तिको खेर गइरहेको समयलाई पूर्ण रुपमा सदुपयोग गरि एउटा उन्नतशील कार्यमा लगाउन आवश्यक देख्दछु। धन्यवाद।

 

विकास कार्की, फाखेल-८, पुरंडे , ९८५५०६९१७५

 

सबै भन्दा पहिला राजनीति स्थिर हुनु पर्यो।, देशका युवाहरुलाई विदेश जानबाट रोक्नु पर्यो। देशमा केहि गरेर बसेका युवाहरुको आवश्यकतालाई सरकारले बुझ्नु पर्यो। जस्तै हामी हाम्रो ठाउँको माटोलाई प्रयोग गरि स्वस्थ तथा आधुनिक कृषि गर्दछौ।

 

Bishwo raj Gautam,Butwal

 

  • युरिया रहित जमीन तराइमा ।
  • पहाडको जैविक मल तराइमा प्रयोग गर्ने।
  • violence free, tension free society निर्माण गर्ने।
  • कम्तीमा बिस्व को २% मनिस  नेपालमा ध्यान साधना गर्न आउने बातावरण मिलाउने र सो  को लागि सेवा नेपाली युवाले गर्ने छ र सम्बृद नेपाल बनाउने छ युवाले।

नेत्र प्रसाद कफ्ले,कालिकोट

 

सर्वप्रथम म अति बिकट बस्ती कालिकोटको बसिन्दा भएकाले मेरो जिल्ला कालिकोटलाई एउटा नेपालको बिश्वकै नमुना भनेर चिनाउन चाहन्छु। हुन त हामीजस्तलाख गरीब युवको मन्यता छैन। यि राष्ट्रघाती नेताहरुको लगि म आफ्नो गाउँलाई,जिल्लालाई, अञ्चलल्लाई र देश्लाई केही गराउन नसके पनि नेपाललाई फोड्ने नेताहरु जस्तो हुदिन। हुन त नेपाललाई दुनियाँको देशबाट भिख मागेर खाने नेताहरुले विश्वाशघत गरे तर पनि ति नै कलंक नेताहरुको साहाएता नपाएपनी कुनै यस्तै यस्तै नेपाली दाजु भाईहरुले मलाई साहायता दिएसम्मा कालिकोट जिल्लालाई नेपालमा मात्र हैन बिश्वोमै चिनाउने उदेश्य हो। जसको लागि यस्ता यस्ता युवा बर्गहरुले साहायता दिउन। अब यि नेताहरुको पछी लाग्नु हुन्न अगाडि बद्नु पर्छ।

 

नाम नखुलेको

 

म सुदुरपश्चिमको महाकाली अंचलको आम मानिस भएकोले म लगायत यहाका तमाम व्यक्तिको यौटै चाहना छ हाम्रो यस नाका भएर दैनिक हजारौ मानिसहरु रोजगारीका लागि भारत तिर जान्छन् त्यो देख्दा धेरै ने दुख लाग्छ हामीले पनि आफ्नै ठाउँमा रोजगार भै आफ्नो खुन पसिना आफ्नै माटोमा बगाएर त्यो हजारौ मानिस हिड्ने बक्षवानाको पुल सधैका लागि बन्द हुनु पर्छ।

नाम नखुलेको

 

हाम्रो देशमा राष्ट्रिय एकता अपरिहार्य छ। यो देशको सिमा रक्षामा मधेशी समुदायको बढी भूमिका हुदा पनि मधेशी समुदायलाई राष्ट्रवादी नठान्नु, मधेशीले जायज मुद्धा उठाउदा विखण्डनवादी भन्नु खस शासकको मनोवृतिमा आम नेपाली जन समुदाय बुझेर अगाडी बढ्नु पर्छ।

ओम प्रकाश

 

एउटा नेपाली स्वाभिमानपुर्वक बाच्ने अवसर प्राप्त होस्। आस्थावान, चरित्रवान र नैतिकवान बनेर समाजसेवामा लाग्ने प्रेरणा सबैबाट मिलोस्, आफु पनि त्यसैमा रम्न सकियोस्।

 

बिदुर ढकाल

 

म विधुर मेरो घर रुपन्देही हो म भरतपुरमा बसेर पत्रकारीता गरिरहेकोछु र पढ्दै पनि छु । हामीले यतिखेर पढाईका लागि जुन पैसा खर्च गरिरहेका छौँ त्यो रकम आफुले कमाउन सकिनेमा विस्वास गर्न सकिने ठाँउ छैन । मेरो सपना भनेको देशका हरेक नागरिकलाई सरकारले उसले चाहे अनुरुपको शिक्षा प्रदान गरोस उसले पढाई सकेपछि को ज्ञानलाई सम्बन्धित क्षेत्रमा सदुपयोग गरोस । देशलाई निशलाई स्व्यमसेवक बनेर केही समय दिए पछि उसको काम अनुरुप उसलाई जागिरको व्यवस्था गरिदिओस ।

अनी मात्र देश बन्छ । देशमा दक्ष युवाशक्ति पलायन भएका छन् । हातमा सर्टिफिकेट भएर पनि लेवरको पैसामा आफ्नो अमूल्य जीवन व्यर्थ फाल्न बाध्य छाँै हामी नेपाली

अब कति सहेर बस्ने यो पीडा हामी नै अगाडि बढौँ । हरेक विवेकशीले नेपालीले यो प्रण गरोँ।
