लगातार 104 दिने पहाड बन्द भएपछि
13 जना भगत सिगं सहिद भएपछि
हजारौ क्रान्तिकारी जेल गएपछि
गोर्खाल्याण्डका आवाजहरू भूमिगत् भए पछि
"म पनी जाने Rising Star*,
ऐतिहासिक बन्द बेअर्थ फिर्ता लिएपछि
क्रान्ती थन्काएर शान्ति रोजे पछि
उन्मुक्ति संग डेभ्लपमेन्ट साटे पछि
सहिद परिवारले सहिदको ज्याला पाए पछि
'म पनी जाने Rising Star*
विभिषणहरू लकां गए पछि
सत्तामोहले दासत्व श्विकारे पछि
उर्दिवालाहरूको तन्खा र पदोन्नती भएपछि
मरौ घरमा उत्सव राखे पछि
_म पनी जाने Rising Star*
(Note- मलाई नाँच्न र गाउँन त त्यती आउँदै तै पनी Rising Star* को खिताब जित्न कवि अगमसिंह गिरी द्वारा रचित तथा स्व अम्बर गुरूङको सगींत र स्वर भएको यो गीत अभ्यास गर्दैछु।
'गीतको बोल यस्तो छ_
हो, नौ लाख तर उदाए, धर्तीको आकाश हाँसेछ।
शरद लाग्यो बनमा, फुलले प्रीति गाँसेछ।
नजली यहाँ झिलिली, मनको तारा निभेछ।
गुराँस फुल्यो पहाडमा, मनको फुल झरेछ।
नसम्झ आज नेपाली, सन्चोले यहाँ बाँचेको।
काँडा कै माझ पहाडी, छैन र कहाँ हाँसेको…२।
सुनको सपना आँसुमा, किन हो बाँधील्यायौ नि।
घरको माया बिर्सेर, किन पो यहाँ आयौ नि…२।
हो, मुटुको रगत एउटै हो, पिरको वह बेग्लै छ।
हामीलाई यहाँ चिन्यौ कि, मनको चोट बेग्लै छ।
नियाली हेर हामीलाई, भिजेको छैन परेला।
आँसुले गह भिजाए, अरुले निर्धा सम्झेला।
बुझ्छ र कस्ले रोएको मुटुमा काँडा लिएर।
अरुका सारमा हाँसेको, आँसुका घुट्का पिएर…२।
पहाडी फुल नफक्री, किन हो चुँडिल्यायौ नि।
मनको आगो निभाउन, किन पो यहाँ आयो नि…२।

|प्यारी दिदी ममता|
By Poet Palden Gyamtsho Dukpa
Where the mind is without fear
And the head held high
Gorkhas are there always ready to die
For our country so beautiful and
For our country of contrast
Gorkhas are here for now till last
For our country so true and
For our country so dear
Gorkhas are here for one and all
Let us all join with Gorkhas so brave
Who can fight for his mother
To dig his own grave
For our country so vast and
For our country so great
Gorkhas are here for ever more
Still fighting not just for country
But still fighting for land
Upon which our Gorkhas need to stand
With mind without fear and
To hold the head high
Gorkhas are here till do or die.
Ink in my pen,
Twinkles the Gorkha name.
Bravest of the braves is our fame.
Our Identity is in mayhem.
Turn the pages of history,
Blood shed,Valour to victory.
Unlock the fierced mystery.
Gained no liberty in our own country.
In the amidst of cloud.
Honour the martyrdom shroud.
All the sacrifices has drowned.
Politicians have to spew.
Happy days to come true.
WILL to CHANGE is in you.
Have FAITH untill bleeds blue.

“Sankee Samay” in Kalimpong on Sunday.
The function also saw poem recitals by noted poets, including Raja Puniyani and Sudhir Chettri along with other young poets Chewang Yonzon, DK Vaibha, Karna Birha, Ashadeep Rai and Vinod Sharma. The programme also had the presence of Kalimpong MLA Dr. Harka Bahadur Chettri, the GTF chairman Dr. Anos Das Pradhan, former Kalimpong College principle Kumar Chettri, advocate Amar Lama, poet Sanumit Rai, writer Sanjay Bisht, Kalimpong Municipality Chairman Jayan Lepcha and litterateur Tara Lohar, along with various other literature enthusiasts.
First time in Darjeeling, the idea to document poems in an audio-visual format has been introduced in the field of Nepali poetry. Gorkha youth poet Nima Sherpa's endeavor of his visual poem, 'Gaon ko katha,' (village story) is a poem where the poet expresses his thoughts on the changing culture of the village, then and now.

The idea to “create” poetry is an innovative one for the hills, one that could perhaps carve the way for others to follow suit. But Nima’s achievement, gained through hard work and dedication, is not without its critics, with the principal one being none other than his father who labours in his field from dawn to dusk.
“We used to shoot for the ‘poetry’ even late at night in order to perfectly blend my poem with the visual presentation, which annoyed my father. He even called me mad,” Nima told the audience comprising poets, writers, journalists and students.
‘Gaon Ko Katha’ was presented by the Darjeeling Press Guild in collaboration with the Mass Communication and Journalism Department of St Joseph’s College, Darjeeling.
Nima is a lecturer at the Ghoom-Jorebungalow Degree College and writing poetry in innovative ways is a ‘mantra’ he wants budding talents to inculcate.
“I interacted with several poets in Nepal and came to know that only a few of them had ever tried writing poetry using audio and still pictures. That was when it struck me to do something different, and the idea of a visual format was born,” he said, while giving credit to the music arranger and his cameraman friends, who had toiled even harder to create the ‘piece’ Nima had envisaged.
“Initially I was skeptical about how the work would come out. I was not sure about how synchronising the music and visuals of the village with my words would go. But all credit to the music arranger and cameramen for the end-product,” said an elated Nima, who shot all the visuals at his native Rampuria village in Takdah.
The poet also unveiled a short selection of poems from his ‘Kurup Phool Ko Gandh’, which was released in Nepal a week ago and will soon be available in the Darjeeling hills.
The audience was also treated to a 40-minute documentary titled ‘Paper Boat’ created by the students of the mass communication department. This was followed by poetry recitals by five poets invited especially for the programme.
