    Saturday February 18, 2023
    cards/flowers : The Rana Dynasty ruled Nepal for 104 years. It was on this day in 1951 when they were ousted from power. To mark this political shift, the Nepali army sounds the bugle at sunrise and fires cannons atop the Bhimsen tower in Kathmandu. A formal ceremony to commemorate the day is held at the Nepal Army Pavilion and attended by the Prime Minister and other key government officials. Celebration of the Democracy Day, however, has not been consistently observed by the Maoist-led government although the country’s Armed Forces and civilian organizations honor this day with their own version of programs.
