Nepal: Former King Gyanendra of Nepal is not satisfied with the present situation in the country. The former king visited the Pashupatinath Temple on Monday evening.

On the occasion of Maha Shivaratri, he extended his greetings to all the Hindus in Nepal and around the world, upon a brief encounter with journalists.

The former king expressed his disappointment with Nepal’s present situation which seems to be going downhill. Political uncertainty in Nepal has made it extremely hard for its economy to grow.

Nepal’s rocky geography, scarcity of tangible natural resources accompanied by poor infrastructure are factors to its declining economy. Also, the ineffective post-1950 government and the long-running civil war are contributing factors in demolishing the nation’s economic development.

The King prayed to the Lord Pashupatinath for country’s peace and relief from the present situation.

The 2,000-year-old temple of Pashupatinath is situated on the bank of the sacred Bagmati River in Kathmandu valley. It comes under one of the most significant Hindu temples of Lord Shiva who is considered the creator of the world.

Gyanendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev was the King of Nepal from 2001 to 2008. He also briefly served as king in his childhood from 1950 to 1951. This was when his grandfather, Tribhuvan, went into exile in India with the rest of his family.

There’s a celebratory flavor to Maha Shivaratri, and maintaining the long followed tradition, he performed the 45 minutes long pooja at the Pashupatinath Temple on the festival’s occasion. (With Inputs from Agencies)
