Well, we can have long discussion on this if one wish.
Today, i read kind of anatomy of our national anthem and its origin.
if you wish, here is the link.
Some selected points from that article for those who do not want to read long one.
Nepal did not have a national anthem as such till about 100 years ago. The Rana government of the day, it seems, made do with whatever melody came in handy for official events and celebrations. Local folk tunes, popular melodies and sometimes even a likeness of God Save the Queen would be played by the military band as the occasion demanded.
The original anthem was like this:
Shreeman Gambhira Gorkhali prachanda pratapi bhupati
Shree-paanch sarkar maharajadhirajako sada rahos unnati
Rakhun chirayu eeshale praja phailiyos pakaraun jaya premale
Hami Gorkhali bhai sarale
Bairi saru haraun, shanta hun sabai brighna byatha
Gaun sara duniyale saharsha nathako sukriti katha
Rakhaun kaman, bhari biratale Nepalimathi sadhai nathako
Shri hos thulo hami Gorkhali ko
For these reasons, many songs have been proposed as alternatives. Among the numbers vying for the top spot is one penned by the firebrand 1940s poet and political activist Gopal Prasad Rimal and put to music by singer-composer Ambar Gurung. The song glorifies the Nepali flag: “Rato ra chandra soorya, jangi nishan hamro…” (‘In red, with the sun and the moon emblazoned, our martial standard…’) A more recent aspirant has been a long-forgotten song by one of the first successful poets of Nepali and a prolific writer, Shambhu Prasad Dhungel. Dhungel was given the title of ‘Aashu Kavi’ by Chandra Shumshere, who was impressed by the poet’s natural ability to simply churn out verse. The song, long forgotten, was resurrected by the singer and musician Deep Shrestha recently. It refers to the Nepali’s need for respect, which has a certain resonance today when the country is dealing with a serious problem of image: “Har bakhat harek kura ma, mana hos Nepalako, jaha jaha jaun hami, shaana hos Nepalako”. (‘All the time, and in every sphere, let Nepal be honoured; wherever we go, may we find Nepal perceived in glory’.)
Perhaps the ideal national anthem would be one that extols and glorifies
exclusively the diversity – geographic and human – that makes up the nation-state of Nepal .
