A few years ago a concept came in my mind when I had been running a Digital Nepal Campaign for the first time in Nepal. The concept came in my mind as Dashain festival was near. Since everything was in the stage of being digital sooner or later, so I thought why not apply the idea of transferring digital money and then I started circulating the concept of Digital Dakshina around my friend circle. Since Dashain was about to start, I starting Dashain Dakshina back in 2015.
To my surprise, after 1 or 2 years later it became the trend. Even eSewa, IME Pay, HostingSewa and even later NIC ASIA bank also started. Obviously, most of them are wallet companies so they definitely will have an advantage too. Nowadays it has become a trend and it feels so good to see. Whenever I see Digital Nepal and Digital Dakshina, it makes me happy.
On 18th October of 2018, I had also run a scheme to increase Digital Wallet presence in Nepal which I also had shared on RabinsXP that day. You can read the article Free Paypal Dakshina (Money) by RS Softwares Pvt. Ltd. in this Vijaya Dashami
This year also I’m donating Digital Dakshina to the orphans and feed the needy one. I have already donated in India through Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled (Bangalore) and in Nepal, I’m planning through the “Write to Feed” writing competition organised by Blogging Big in the association of Leo Club of Creative Youths.
It has already been 5 years since I have started Digital Nepal, Digital Dakshina and Dashain Dakshina and now it has been a modern trend in Nepal. Perhaps, COVID 19 pandemic accelerated this process.
Enjoy Dashain and Enjoy your Digital Dakshina. 🙂
