Since quite a long time, there had been a discussion going on about which game should be made the national game of Nepal. And the Nepal government has finally made the decision. On Monday, the government declared volleyball to be the national game of Nepal. Confirming the same; Surendra Karki, the spokesperson of Nepal government, said that the cabinet meeting decided to pick volleyball as the national game.
Nepal never actually had a national game; but it was considered to be Dandi Biyo, unofficially. We’re glad we finally have a ‘real’ sport as our national game; and we would not have a tough time trying to explain our national game to a foreigner.
Let us know what do you think of the decision in the comment section below.
