Guru Falgunanda Jayanti | World Science day for peace and development

It takes a long time for the arrival of great Gurus into this earth, it is believed that only one Guru is born at a time. Such great personalities, based on their knowledge, experience, and skills, have been guiding society towards the positive path and showing the way to salvation for ages and today we are going to reveal the facts and histories of the birth anniversary of such a man.
Guru Falgunand, who was born in Ilam, Eastern Nepal in 1942, is believed to have had wonderful and miraculous qualities.
Guru Falgunand has played an invaluable role in bringing the highly decent and nature-loving Kirant community living in the hilly districts into the mainstream of development, deepening them socially, economically, and culturally, and influencing education. Similarly, Guru Falgunand has a huge contribution to bringing the Kirant community out of the orthodox tradition. This is the reason why even today, after hundreds of years, the work and fame of Guru Falgunand is being praised in the Kirant community.
Guru Falgunand's full statue is established in Timae, 1, Shantinagar, Jhapa. Today, various events and gatherings are held there. Similarly, the Government of Nepal has started construction and development of the road connecting China through Damak, Jhapa, Ilam, Taplejugan, and Panchthar as Falgunand Highway. Similarly, the Falgunand Cup football tournament is also being organized in Eastern Nepal.

However, these meetings and gatherings are condemned for this year, but the respect towards Guru Falgunanda and acknowledgment of his contributions have no limits.

Football tournament is organized every year in Phidim of Pachthar district however, this year could be a bit different. The Government of Nepal has also issued postage stamps in 1993 with a picture of Guru Falgunand, a follower of love and non-violence.

The Guru of the Kirants, Falgunanda Lingden, is a well-known Guru, Satyavakta, and Sadhu of Nepal. The divine wisdom and the ultimate truths he gave still show the true path in different periods of human life. In memory of this social engineer and master of social and spiritual thought, Falgunanda Jayanti is celebrated all over Nepal today with various programs and cultural exhibitions.
The Kirant community not only in Nepal but all over the world celebrates Falgunanda Jayanti on this day, especially in Nepal, Bhutan, India, and other places where his name is taken with great pride.

The Limbu Conference was organized for the first time in Nepal in 2070 BS by embracing his divine word and knowledge delivered by Guru Falgunanda. The conference, held under the theme "Dignity, Self-Dignity, Prestige and Identity of Indigenous Peoples Limbuwan National Awakening, Kiachu Yuppa Tangberen Hekam" The aim was to build a common understanding on various issues.

World Science day for peace and development
Every year on November 10, World Science Day for Peace and Development is celebrated around the world. The United Nations has started celebrating this day to understand the important role of science in society and how it affects its importance and relevance in our daily lives by engaging the general public in debates on emerging scientific issues.
This year, the biggest scientific achievement would happen if medical science can develop an effective vaccine against COVID 19 and set the world free. 2020, is not the general year, this year is the remarkable year of human solidarity against COVID, the year of combat with the affliction of lockdown and silence.

To keep the citizens of today's society informed about the progress of science, the United Nations wants to move forward by keeping the society as close as possible to science. Today also explains the remarkable contributions that scientists make to the community for the benefit of our society.

Besides, the objectives of World Science Day for Peace and Development are to promote national and international solidarity for science among nations, renew national and international commitments to use science for the benefit of society, draw attention to the challenges faced by science and mobilize national and international support for scientific endeavors. Since its inception by UNESCO in 2001, many scientific projects and programs have been successful, with many countries around the world providing financial support at the initiative of UNESCO. One of the objectives of the day is to coordinate the work of war-affected nation's scientists with other scientific organizations in the world.

In this scientific age in which we are born, the contribution of science to peace and development will be incomparable. Good luck to everyone on this day.
