Gopal Hamal: Social Worker

A social worker from a very young age. Gopal Hamal initiated the start of a blood bank in Dhangadhi in 2042 B.S. by inviting late Narayan Gopal, Madan Krishna Shrestha, and Hari Bansha Acharaya by playing in a Sanskritic Sanjh program. He was only 22 years old at the time.

Afterwards, Gopal Hamal started the Sundar Sudurpaschim and Gantabya Sudurpaschim campaign to help Sudurpaschim regain its fame as it was depicted as the place of inadequacy, “Deuki Pratha”, “Chaupadi Pratha”, social injustice, and “Dalit” and non-Dalit sense of distinction.

Gopal Hamal exhibited 1000 photos of the different art and culture of Sudurpaschim and campaigned for it in different parts of the country. So, he is regarded by the people of the Sudurpaschim as a leader and visionary person of the Sundar Sudurpaschim.

Under his leadership, the influential leaders of the center who reached the far west were garlanded with 38 kilos of the demand letters that were handed over to remind them of the problems there.

This was also his idea. For this, he started the Mahotsav in Dhangadhi, and a 21 kg garland was given to Sher Bahadur Deuba along with 21 buds. After that, the custom of garlands for the leaders spread.
