Hello and Namaste! Welcome to the Royal Holloway Nepalese Society

Nepal's rich history, stretching from the ancient Gopalas and Mahishapalas to the modern Federal Democratic Republic, reflects a journey of resilience, cultural evolution, and political transformation. The unification of Nepal under Prithvi Narayan Shah in the 18th century marked the beginning of a centralized state, with the Shah dynasty and later the Rana regime playing pivotal roles in shaping the nation's destiny. The struggle for democracy, culminating in the abolition of the monarchy in 2008 and the promulgation of a new constitution in 2015, underscores Nepal's commitment to self-determination and progress. Central to Nepal's identity is its historic relationship with the United Kingdom, epitomized by the valor of the Gurkha soldiers who have served in the British Army since the Sugauli Treaty of 1815. This relationship extends beyond military alliances, encompassing development partnerships and cultural exchanges that have enriched both nations. The contribution of the British Gurkhas, celebrated for their bravery and loyalty, serves as a symbol of the enduring friendship between Nepal and the UK, reflecting mutual respect and shared values.

At our university, the Nepalese society is dedicated to sharing Nepal's rich cultural heritage with the broader community, fostering an environment of inclusivity and learning. Through cultural events, educational programs, and social gatherings, we aim to bridge the gap between different cultures and promote an understanding of Nepal's unique traditions, history, and societal contributions. Whether it's through the celebration of festivals, the sharing of Nepali cuisine, or discussions on Nepal's developmental strides and challenges, our goal is to cultivate a sense of global citizenship and mutual respect among students from diverse backgrounds. By highlighting the historical ties and contemporary relationship between Nepal and the UK, we underscore the importance of cross-cultural friendship and cooperation in today's interconnected world.
