Woman’s Day in Nepal is written as ‘Nari ko Diwas‘ popularly written as Nari Diwas in the Nepali language. The ‘of’ means ‘ko’ which is not necessary to say while you write a phrase as a noun. Nari means ‘women’ and Diwas means ‘day’ in the Nepali language while the counterpart being ‘Nar’ meaning ‘male’.
If written as a phrase it is ‘Nari Ko Diwas’ means ‘day of women’ and if it’s treated as a noun, it’s ‘Nari Diwas’ means ‘women-day’ and we say it in the noun. Some people also write Diwash as Dibash or Diwash depending upon their Nepali lingua franca. The confusing part is it’s written as ‘Diwash’ and pronounced as ‘Dibash’. However, most of the media newspapers are seen using ‘Nari Diwas’ which I am also following since my last post on International Women’s Day in Nepal.
Now let’s enter to our topic of International Women’s Day Nepal. The slogan for this’s years International women’s day is ‘Press For Progress’ which literally means pressure for development. Speaking in the present context of Nepal, Honorable President Vidyadevi Bhandari is recognizable for the overall women’s pride and for the nation too.
President Vidyadevi Bhandari greeted on the 108th International Women’s Day stating that integral initiatives are necessary to ensure women’s rights. She added that this day marks the special importance to be given to the holistic development of women as well as social awareness for their needs. #PressforProgress
