9. How far do differences in behaviour relate to national characteristics?
I think there should be similar attitude of people towards their nation and citizens. This is called a sense of nationality. All should be dedicated to sacrifice for the sake of nation, in this case the nation becomes ideal and it reflects a true national characteristics.
Each individual is naturally different in their behaviors and activities. This individual difference is one aspect but there should be proper concept of national integrity and universal brotherhood. We normally introduce proudly ourselves as Nepali since our Nepalese culture, honesty and generous hearts show the loyalty and true humanity in the international scenarios.
There are a number of ways to respect our elders. Some bow down their head, some say Namaste, other bow down on someone’s feet, but there lies a true sense of respect. Though we adopt our own types of religions, but if any Nepali is killed and misbehaved, we feel sorry with a feeling of nationality. Let’s take the scenario of natural calamity took place in 2015 (2072 BS) as Earthquake that damaged billion dollars of property and hundreds and thousands families. In this national pathetic situation most of Nepalese are cooperative, understandable and sharing and caring to each others. Though some rogues are getting benefits of this period but the majority of people are wailing for national problem and taking challenge and helping each other from home and abroad.
Unfortunately, political leaders in Nepal have spoken lies and frequently cheated to humble people. This is why there is no peace and stability in the country. Again, there are verities in our respective relations and in our understandings. Sometimes we characterize our nation as unity in plurality with integrity and multiple races, classes and groups. This is special characteristics of Nepal and Nepalese people.
Most importantly, some behaviorus of our forefathers and leaders or heroes we have established a distinct national characteristics. Our golden past or history has ever highlighted our unity in differences. This invaluable cultural heritage must be maintained and promoted by all Nepalese people. From an individual manner to socio-cultural patterns, differences in behaviours reflect to national characteristics in the context of Nepal.
