Tuki and Diyalo traditions are lost

2022 Mar 02, 15:15,

The tradition of burning tuki and diyalo, which identifies the lifestyle of the ancestors and the time, is beginning to disappear. These traditions are disappearing with the rapid expansion of electricity and use of alternative energy in the villages of the district.

Aaron, which was seen in the rural areas of the district a decade and a half ago, has also been displaced recently. Bishwakarma, which operates the iron profession, said that the traditional profession of making iron tools is disappearing after the practice of using imported agricultural tools started.

Even though electricity has not reached all the places in the rural areas of the district, the tradition of burning tuki and diyalo in the dark is about to disappear as kerosene is not available on time and even diyalo cannot be extracted from the pine tree as before.

"Due to the development in the villages, people in the rural areas of the district now use solar panels for lighting instead of tuki and diyalo," said Prakash Subedi of Dhawalagiri village municipality-7. As it happens, their attraction has increased. ” He said that they have been living on tuki and diyalo for generations but they have disappeared due to the recent expansion of electricity and development of alternative energy.

Locals of Raghuganga Gaonpalika-6 have started using solar instead of Tuki and Diyalo even in remote villages of Myagdi where electricity is not available from the central transmission line. Ward Chairman Mankumar Sherpurja said.

Himali Chhantyal of Raghuganga Gaonpalika-6 Thadakhani said that it has become easier for children to read and watch television at night after installing solar. As the village is attracted to alternative energy, some community forest user groups in the district have been spending a certain percentage of their income on installing solar in their homes.

Iron Smith's are disappearing

Due to the increasing modernization in recent times, the iron profession is also disappearing in Myagdi. According to Shyam Bahadur Bishwakarma of Malika Gaonpalika-3, who started working as a wage earner three years ago after losing his job three years ago due to lack of professionalism in the past.

He says that the youths are leaving the profession as there is no suitable income in the current environment. "Young people are becoming more attracted to foreign employment than their traditional occupations. It has become difficult to support the family as they have not been paid for making various materials by beating iron all day long, ”he said. I was the only one in the village doing this job alone. He said that he had to change his profession as he did not get proper remuneration even after working day and night.

According to Toran Lal BK, a local, Aaron is disappearing as the new generation is leaving the profession. He said that life would be better if the state provided necessary assistance and necessary arrangements to it like other professions.

He said that the condition of repairing and building tools is still the same throughout the year. Vishwakarma says that despite the change in the attitude and attitude of the society towards sewing, there has been no change in the profession of Aaron. It is said that the profession has been neglected due to lack of professionalism, lack of respect for the profession and lack of support from the government.


Locals are involved in the protection and preservation of the old heritage .

A campaign to develop it as a spiritual tourist destination has been announced under the chairmanship of Dr. Rudrananda Brahmachari after the historical fact was found that Kapilananda Swamiji, a disciple of Baitapasvi Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, came to this place about 115 years ago and performed penance at this place around 1962 BS.
