Those matters connected with a state which all the citizens of the state need to understand and follow are called national concerns. Nepal is a sovereign and independent country. Unity in diversity is our specialty. Nepal is a common garden of 4 castes and 36 sub castes. Mainly, there are 3 issues of national concerns. They are:

i. National integrity

National integrity is the state of being whole and non-divided, which forms wholeness and unity of all the citizens of all the parts of the country. Nepal is an independent, sovereign, indivisible, secular and inclusive country. Nepalese people have fought hard to transform the country from exclusive to inclusive, Hindu kingdom to a secular state and monarchy to republic to change themselves according to time. Nepal has faced all sorts of difficulties to protect its national integrity and independence. Nepal never became the colony of powerhouse Britain. The national heroes like Balabhadra Kunwar, Bhakti Thapa, fought bravely to save the national integrity.

Measures to promote national integrity:

  • By eradicating all types and forms of negative discrimination based on race, religion, tribes, class, etc.
  • By developing an effective diplomatic relationship with neighboring as well as abroad countries.
  • By making the system of inclusive participation of people in all sectors and authorities.
  • By encouraging the citizens to maintain peace and order in the harmony.

ii. Border Encroachment:

The act of controlling criminal activities at the border for national security is known as national security. Nepal is a small country which lies between two big countries i.e. China and Nepal. There is a high risk of broader encroachment on the southern border than in northern border as the plain land in the southern border is easy to displace. But the northern border is full of steep rocks and mountains. So, the possibility of broader encroachment in the northern border is less. Nepalese are still fighting for border security. As a result, a hidden cold war is taking place between patriotic Nepalese and the Indian government to solve the problems of border encroachment.

Measures to solve border encroachment

  • There should be regular monitoring in the borders areas of Nepal by a national team consisted of various political parties, border expert, and authorized technical persons.
  • Border pillars, boundary lines, etc. should be repaired or built if it is damaged and the records of their real locations should be kept.
  • The government should make the situation of regular monitoring requesting the neighboring country.
  • There should be the participation of international bodies such as UNO or any other organizations acceptable to both countries to facilitate the border dispute resolution meeting.

iii. Self-esteem/Self-Respect:

Self-esteem is a feeling of being happy and delightful with one's characters and activities. Self Respect is a feeling of pride in oneself that what one addresses, says, etc. that is good or bad.Nepalese have been famous worldwide as the Brave Gorkhalis and our country as the land of brave warriors. Nepalese are self-reliant, laborious and hard workers and true nation lovers. Our country, Nepal was protected from British rulers because of the unification campaign launched by King Prithivi Narayan Shah. The national heroes like Amar Singh Thapa, Bhakti Thapa fought bravely to resist the mighty forces of British India during the Anglo-Nepal war. They did so due to their love and respect for the motherland. We should follow their principles and become hard working, sincere and should eradicate all sorts of malpractices. We should also be ready to sacrifice our lives for the sake of the nation.
