hey u being madhesi feel good to be called. It's true that madhesis are not given respect in kathmandu.

But its also true that madhesi feel more near to delhi rather to kathmandu. What do you say for that ?

The madhesis have more respect to hindi rather than to Nepali. What to u say for that ?And they want to call hindi as the National language of Nepal. This has been practised politically by the madhesi parties. Wearing of dhoti in parliament had been politicalized by Sadhbhavana party as the freedom to wear his communal dress in the parliament. Has any gurung or newar or other communal people has ever tried that ? They also have their own communal dress. Why do you donot respect the daura suruwal? The issue of making hindi as national language of Nepal was widely publicized by indian media and even said that only political party in Nepal supporting India is Sadhbhawana.

The extreme communal feeling in the people is taking us nowhere. The kirats and the other community have the same feeling regarding their domination by the other community.

At first madhesis should feel Nepal as the safe land not India. And promoting regional language like maithili is far better than saying hindi as the national language. You answer me how much percentage of population speak hindi as their mother-tounge.
