Centenary personality Joshi study centre to be established

02/20/2019

Kathmandu, Feb. 20: The Lalitpur metropolis is to establish the Bangmaya centenary personality Satya Mohan Joshi Academy and Study Centre.
Joshi is becoming 100 years old from coming Baisakh 30, 2076 and the centre will help those wishing to study about Joshi, said Mayor Chiri Babu Maharjan at a press conference held to announce the programmes to be organised for a year, after Joshi turns 100.
Likewise, a park including a statue of Joshi will be constructed at an appropriate location in the metropolitan city, while a street will be named after him. Other activities include taking Joshi for a darshan of Gosaikunda, presenting prizes and awards in his name, publishing postage stamps and golden coins.
Likewise, a special souvenir about Joshi will be published while a documentary will be prepared about his daily lifestyle.
The birth centenary festival will begin with Joshi being taken around the city for a tour. "We have taken this initiative as people need to be honoured when they are alive. This festival will be a break away from the tendency of showering respect on people only after their demise, while ignoring them when they are alive," Mayor Maharjan said.
It may be noted that the Metropolis had formed a 111-member committee under the convenorship of Mayor Maharjan to celebrate the centennial of Joshi by organising a variety of programmes for a year. RSS
