Bhoj Bahadur Balayar, an educationist from Shikhar Municipality, Doti District, is leading a campaign to teach Nepali children to speak and write Nepali during their migration.

He said that a Nepali language school has been set up to connect the children born in exile who are ignorant about the language, art, culture and civilization of their country with Nepal. "We are trying to transfer the language of Nepali language, art, culture and moral education to the children of Nepali born in exile by running schools," he said in a telephone conversation with RSS. Such a school class is necessary to remove the inconvenience.

 Those who come to the temple for the vision and worship of God, after the completion of the work of worship, such a school is also run by inviting children to the same temple. In some parts of the United States, the Nepali community itself and in some places, the initiative of the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) is said to have given such education. He has the experience that the children of the Nepali diaspora are able to speak and write both English and Nepali language through such language school education which is conducted informally by arranging suitable time. With the problem of corona infection, such schools have been operating through online classes in recent years.

"Blair's leadership role in running a school for Nepali language and culture for Nepali children born in the United States is commendable," said Shankar Thapa of Jorail village in Doti district, who lives in the United States. Blair, who has lived in Texas for a decade, has been appointed chairman of the Nepali Pathshala Committee, formed by the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA). He is also contributing to the coordination of the work of creating and managing the level curriculum required for the operation of the school.

Migrant Nepalis say that it is inevitable to learn language through school classes as the transmission of their language, art, culture, etc. is seen as a challenge in the children of migrant Nepalis. Their language, culture, art, culture, behavior is passed down from one generation to another. Due to the changing society, it seems that some complications are arising from time to time to easily pass on some of these issues even in the homeland. It is even more challenging for children born in exile to pass on these issues. In order to solve these problems, informal language schools are being run in Texas and other states of the United States under the leadership of educationist Blair.

The Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) is said to be assisting in such work. "Nepali Pathshala has a great deal of experience in connecting Nepali children growing up in exile with Nepal," he said. He plans to produce the book and make it available to the school free of cost. Basic classes on Nepali language, culture, rites, moral education, literature, yoga, dance and Nepali alphabet are conducted in the school.

It is stated that more than one thousand Nepali children have benefited from the Nepali Pathshala last year alone. While living in Nepal, Blair was involved in the teaching profession for a long time. He said that he was happy to have the opportunity to serve Nepalis in the field of education even while living in exile. Meanwhile, he has been appointed as the chairperson of the Nepali Pathshala Committee formed by the Non-Resident Nepali Association of America.
