Yuba Sanchar: Youth Oral Presentation – Swagat Ghimire

 *This show is in Nepali Language*

In this presentation, Swagat Ghimire talks about many Nepali children’s preference to visit developed countries over Nepal for reasons like having to meet relatives, eat rice often, etc.

Swagat makes the case that visiting different developed countries don’t give wholly different experiences. A ride at an amusement park is the same regardless of where the ride is. But Nepal is a world by itself. For example, the experiences one can attain in Pokhara, Kathmandu and Lumbini all have their unique features worth seeing. Despite this, Swagat isn’t blind to the problems either. Frequent street protests pose difficulties for tourists. Nepali politicians take note! And to other children: when you do go to Nepal, try to get out a little – there is a lot to see!
