About Shayam Bahadur Thapa

गाउँमा जन्मे र शहर अथवा विदेश गइ उच्च सिक्ष्या हासिल गर्नु राम्रो कुरा हो| तर अथाक सम्पति कमाएर ठुला ठुला
बगालोमा बसेर चिल्ला चिल्ला सडकमा -चिल्ला चिल्ला गाडीमा सवार गर्नु मात्र ठुलोकुरा हुदैन I आफु जन्मेको गाउँमा पनि सकेको सहयोग गरि गाउँको बिकाशमा योगदान गर्नु ठुलो कार्य हुन्छ |
-स्व. श्री श्याम बहादुर थापा
