Evaluate the extent to which your country has achieved equality for all of its people.

According to me, I think that my country has fulfilled the above statement to some point of view. So, with the proud from my inner heart, I am glad to tell all that I am from the country where people of more than 120+ languages and various caste, race, and religions live together with a peaceful environment. I am proud to say that I from “Nepal”. If I have to describe something about I country I can easily talk more 1hour non-stop. So, Nepal is a country of beauty which is located in Asia. As I have mentioned above more than 120+ languages are spoken in Nepal. Nepal is a country where every people follow the slogan “Unity in diversity”. Nepal has a great history since the time of East India Company trying to capture Nepal. Nepal has always been a freedom country which was not ruled by any other nation in the world. Although, Nepal is a small country the heart of the people living here is very big. During the time period of Anglo Nepal war because of unity and self believe among people they fight with East Indian Company with knives and hands whereas East Indian Company were using modern technology but till the last moment Nepalese fought against them due to which Nepalese got the huge respect from British. And from that time to now Nepalese people are choosing to join their army with the faith that Nepalese can help them a lot.

The above are a few introductions about Nepal and its people. Now we will be talking about “Does Nepal has really achieved equality for all of its people?” If someone asks me this question my answer will be yes. After the long wait for the constitution in Nepal, we Nepalese got it during the time period of 2015AD (2072 BS). Before that constitution, Nepal has no rule for equality in its previous constitution. In its previous constitution women were given only 28% of the freedom and right whereas male was always given more than 70% of the freedom and rights. Not only in the name of gender but there was also discrimination regarding the people caste and religion. People were categorized into low caste, middle caste, and high caste. During that time if a person falls under the category of low caste then they cannot touch the people of high and middle caste, they cannot marry the people of middle and high caste people , they cannot touch the foods  in case if the food was touched than the food was used to be thrown in the garbage, they cannot enter into the house of people of middle and high caste especially they are not allowed to enter into kitchen, and they were not allowed to enter into temple. Even the work was given and categorized according to the caste.

After the implementation of “Constitution of Nepal 2072” new rule was introduced where people cannot discriminate each other in the name of caste, people of any caste can follow any religion they want and the percentage of freedom and right among male and female were made equal. For example: – “after the implementation of that constitution for the first time Nepal got its first lady president and till now also the president of Nepal is a lady.” Let me give one more example: – “during the local election also it is most to have at least 1 women and 1 dalti( the people of a caste who were categorized into low caste in the previous constitution) among 5 candidates and the remaining can be even male or female from any caste.” Nowadays girls and boys are equally treated and if the discrimination is done in the name of caste and gender then the punishment will be given as per the constitution.

In the end, we can conclude that the above statement matches the situation of Nepal. For the clarification, we can also see the example given at the second last paragraph and check the constitution of Nepal also.
