1 DID YOU CLIMB MT EVEREST?
Forget about climbing the Everest majority of the Nepalis had not even seen it from far. The world’s tallest peak is in the Himalayas where there is no human settlement.
2 IS NEPAL A DIFFERENT COUNTRY?
This is the worst question you will ever ask to any Nepali. Most of the Nepalis can’t stand this sort of ignorance or humiliation.
3 WHEN DID NEPAL BECOME INDEPENDENT?
Please don’t ask this because it has no answer. Unlike many other countries, Nepal was never ruled by any foreign country so it has always been an independent nation.
4 YOU MUST BE USED TO THIS FREEZING COLD, AIN’T YOU?
People ask this even in the coldest parts of the world eg in Northern Europe, Canada or Russia where winter is too harsh and temperature goes below -20 degree. But it is pretty warm in Nepal. Of course, there is snow in but only in the Himalayas where hardly below 10% population lives.
5 ARE YOU FROM INDIA?
Never guess and ask anyone’s nationality on its appearance. A white can be from Britain, America, Germany , Russia, Netherlands. A black can be from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya or Canada. So can a brown be anywhere from Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, India or elsewhere.
6 WHY DO NEPALIS LOOK LIKE CHINESE?
Nepal is a mixed country dominated by two major races Mongolians and Aryans. Rest, See no 5
7 ARE YOU ALLOWED TO DRINK IN NEPAL?
Don’t ask this. Just give them a few shots of vodka to test then what you will see might surprise you.
8 WHY NEPAL HAS A TRIANGULAR FLAG?
Probably Nepalis will be happy to hear that you know at least something about Nepal but many Nepalis do not know the reason behind unique flag.
9 WHAT LANGUAGE DO YO SPEAK IN NEPAL, IS IT HINDI?
You will get straight answer ‘No’. More than 100 languages are spoken in Nepal but national language is Nepali. The secret though is majority of Nepalis follow Bollywood, Indian TV channels and media so they do understand and speak the language
