सयौं थुँगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली

ज्ञानभूमि, शान्तिभूमि तराई, पहाड, हिमाल
अखण्ड यो प्यारो हाम्रो मातृभूमि नेपाल।
बहुल जाति, भाषा, धर्म, संस्कृति छन् विशाल
अग्रगामी राष्ट्र हाम्रो, जय जय नेपाल।

English translation
Woven from hundreds of flowers, we are one garland that's Nepali
Spread sovereign from Mechi to Mahakali
A playground for nature's wealth unending
Out of the sacrifice of our braves, a nation free and unyielding
A land of knowledge, of peace, the plains, hills and mountains tall
Indivisible, this beloved land of ours, our motherland Nepal
Of many races, languages, religions, and cultures of incredible sprawl
This progressive nation of ours, all hail Nepal

Loose Explanation

The following explanation is meant for capturing the true essence of the National Anthem:

"We Nepalese, from different lingual, racial, religious or cultural background are the individual flower of a whole garland of the Nepali race. We have always been sovereign and we are spread out from our territories of Mechi to Mahakali.

Blessed with Nature's millions gifts and blessed by the blood sacrificed by our Heroes, we are independent and are immovable - standing still with pride.

Nepal - the land where knowledge shines, the peaceful nation consisting of Terai, Hills and Mountains - is indivisible. It is our beloved motherland and we shall preserve its sovereignty at any cost.

A melting pot of diverse races, numerous languages and religions, Nepal is rich in its large diverse culture. We are a progressive people of the progressive nation and we don't look back - Hail Nepal!"

History

After the unanimous decision on May 19, 2006, by the House of Representatives (Pratinidhi Sabha) of the Kingdom of Nepal, the old national anthem was suspended. The National Anthem Selection Task Team (NASTT) on 30 November 2006, selected poet Byakul Maila's (real name: Pradeep Kumar Rai) song as the new national anthem of Nepal. The new national anthem was selected from a total of 1272 submissions made from across the country. It was officially approved on 20 April 2007.[4]

On August 3, 2007, Sayaun Thunga Phool Ka was officially declared as Nepal's national anthem by the House of Representatives.

Former national anthem

"Shree man gambhira Nepali" was the national anthem of Kingdom of Nepal.[5] till May 19, 2006, when the century-old national anthem was suspended by the House of Representatives. It was adopted in 1962, as a homage to the ruler of Nepal and the country's national anthem. In English it may be named "May Glory Crown You, Courageous Sovereign" or "May Glory Crown Our Illustrious Sovereign." The music was composed by Bakhat Bahadur Budhapirthi in 1899 (Grandfather of musician Louis Banks or Dambar Bahadur Budaprithi), and the lyrics were written by Chakra Pani Chalise in 1924.[6][7]

Devanagari Script

श्रीमान् गम्भीर नेपाली, प्रचण्ड प्रतापी भूपति
श्री ५ सरकार महाराजाधिराजको, सदा रहोस् उन्नति
राखुन् चिरायु ईशले, प्रजा फैलियोस, पुकारौं जय प्रेम
हामी नेपाली सा...रा..ले.....

Transliteration

Shri mân gumbhira nepâli
prachanda pratâpi bhupati.
Shri pânch sarkâr mahârâjâdhirâjako
sadâ rahos unati.
Rakhun chi râyu eeshale
prajâ phailiyos.
pukâraun jaya premale
Hâmi nepâli bhaee sârâle.

Translation

May glory crown you, courageous Sovereign,
You, the gallant Nepalese, Shri Pansh Maharajadhiraja,
our glorious ruler, May he live for many years to come
And may the number of his subjects increase.
Let every Nepalese sing this with joy.

After the April movement for democracy, The anthem was abolished as it was widely accused of being just a tune for monarchical glorification instead of representing the Nation as a whole.
