Nepali anthem best in the world

Nepal now has among the 10 best national anthems of the world (according to Guardian magazine). Finally Nepalese bag something in Beijing Olympics! The new Nepali national anthem is among the best chosen from the 205 countries. Congratulations to the new Nepali national anthem. Too bad the players couldn't do any proud (medal wise) to the nation this time either.

I also hear that the maoist leader / current prime minister of Nepal has gone to participate in Beijing Olympics 2008 closing ceremony. Lets see what prize he wins or what records he breaks this time around.

Meanwhile we could as well sing along to the new national anthem of Nepal, just over a year old..

Hundred of flowers one garland of Nepalese,
Sovereign and spread out from Mechi to Mahakali;

A collection of millions of nature's heritage
Independent and intact due to the courage of our braves

Land of knowledge and peace - Terai, mountains and Hills
Undivided beloved motherland Nepal of ours

Diversities in races, languages, religions and cultures
A progressive nation, long long live Nepal

Written by Byakul Maila, Compoision by Amber Gurung

Hopefully I got the translation correct
