Version 2

The new national anthem of Nepal

In English Translation

We are the flowers of hundreds, the one garland - Nepali
Sovereign, spread out from Mechi to Mahakali.

Amazing nature's millions of heritages
By the blood of the braves, independent and immovable.

Land of Knowledge, land of peace, Tarai, Himals, Mountains
Undivided this beloved, our mother-land Nepal.

Diverse race, language, religion, culture are so large
Our progressive country, long live, long live Nepal. 

In Nepali Language / Script

    सयौ थुङ्गा फूलका हामी एउटै माला नेपाली,
    सार्बभौम भई फैलिएका मेची महाकाली
    प्रकृतिका कोटीकोटी सम्पदाको आंचल,
    बीरहरुका रगतले स्वतन्त्र र अटल
    ज्ञानभूमि शान्तिभूमि तराई पहाड हिमाल,
    अखण्ड यो प्यारो हाम्रो मातृभूमि नेपाल
    बहूल जाति भाषा धर्म संस्कृति छन् विशाल,
    अग्रगामी राष्ट्र हाम्रो जय जय नेपाल

English Translation of Version 1

May glory crown you, courageous Sovereign,
You, the gallant Nepalese,
Shri Pansh Maharajadhiraja, our glorious ruler,
May he live for many years to come
And may the number of his subjects increase.
Let every Nepalese sing this with joy.

All Nepalese TV and Radios play national anthem at the begining and ending of each day's programming. Students line-up infront of their school singing national anthem before classes begin. Nepalese love Nepal like no other! There are hundreds of Nepali national songs all of them are about loving Nepal and giving their contributions to Nepal. There are also national songs about the ongoing war in Nepal that is ripping the country apart. Nationality is very improtant to Nepalese and is respected very well.

The reality of the Nepali national anthem Version 1.0, is that most don't really like the anthem at all, well, a lot of people on this planet don't like their national anthems either! Nepali anthem is a King's song. It does not honor the poorest people that make up the entire Nepal kingdom. Majority of Nepalese believe that Nepali anthem should be rewritten. Well, the version 2.0 is the latest national anthem, read it above!

In Nepali, national anthem is called "Ras Triya Gaan" and the Anthem's words were by Sri Chakra Pani Chalise (1884-1959) and music by Bakhat Bahadur Budhapirthi (1857-1920), and the anthem was inducted in 1924.
