Did you know… that the 28th of May is Republic Day in Nepal? The holiday – also known as “Ganatantra Diwas” – commemorates the day on which the country put an end to its long-standing civil strike to officially become a federal democratic republic in 2008.
To get in on the celebrations, Indian company Mangalam Industries is enlisting the help of Nepalis all over the world to create the country’s largest-ever national anthem.
Those wishing to participate in the #VoicesofNepal can visit the specially created website to record and upload their unique renditions of the anthem. The company will then collate these to create a master copy, which will be shared on the 26th of May. While the crowd-sourcing campaign hopes to appeal to all ages, the colourful collaterals put a youthful spin on things.
