‘Save Citizenship’ campaigner Govinda Belbase’s book launched

KATHMANDU: A book written by the campaigner of ‘save citizenship’ Govinda Belbase has been launched today by writer Khagendra Sangraula amid a programme organised at Media International.

The book called 'Rashtrabad: Bhram Ki Yathartha', translating to Nationalism: Illusion or Truth, was launched in the programme organised by the ‘save citizenship’ campaign. Amidst the programme, Professor of Law Krishna Belbase and Former Law Secretary Mohan Banjade expressed with confidence that the book is going to make a positive contribute to the society.

Forest Economist and former Secretary Dr Keshav Kandel, Irrigation Expert and Joint Secretary Madhav Belbase and Krishna Belbase, Senior Lawyer Prakash Mani Sharma, Telecommunications expert Bhesh Raj Kandel, Nepali Talent Academy UK Chief Daya Krishna Rai, among others, were present at the event.

The book that is divided into three sections describes in simple yet elegant language the relationship of a nation with its citizens, the experiences of the writer with his citizenship, and legal complexities and practical difficulties related to this subject matter.

The book also highlights the importance of cultural adjustment and preservation, in a time when the youth of the nation - especially middle-income citizens and labour workers - are going abroad for foreign employment. Many Nepalis are settling in foreign lands after going to work there. We have reached a stage where it is now almost impossible for the country to run without remittance.

Through these contexts, the book reflects traditional nationalism and present situation of the society from the viewpoint of law and justice.
