Remembering Swor Samrat Narayan Gopal


KATHMANDU: Perhaps there isn’t anyone who hasn’t listened to the melodious songs of Swor Samrat Narayan Gopal. Be it his Priyashi Ka Yaadharu, Malai Nasodha Kaha Dukcha Ghaau, Pokhiyera Ghaam Ko Jhulka, Timi Jun Rahar Le, Aakha Chhopi, Mohani Lagla Hai and so on, they have been all-time hits. Thus, with an aim to highlight the contributions of Gopal in the Nepali musical field, Nepal Art Culture Development Centre in association with Trikal Art Academy, Voice International, Samudayik Sewa Kendra and Nepal Mahila Samaj Sewa Sangh organised a commemoration and musical event on his 24th death anniversary at Maharajgunj on December 5.

Singers Sangita Rana Pradhan, Kunti Moktan, Ram Krishna Dhakal, Santosh Lama, Reema Gurung, along with 15 others were paying homage to the legendary singer and composer singing his 22 eternal songs.

Dhakal who sang hit numbers like Lau Suna Ma Bhanchu, Malai Nasodha Kaha Dukcha Ghaau was praised by the audiences and requested to sing other songs of Gopal. That’s when he sang Priyashika Yaadharu.

“Gopal is the one who always remains in the heights of Nepali music. He is the one who pioneered modern songs. I have been listening to his songs since my childhood and have always been impressed by his personality. He was the one who never compromised on music. Organising such events from a local level is praiseworthy but if such works are conducted from the governmental level then it would be even more encouraging,” shared Dhakal.

Moktan who sang Gopal’s Timilai Bhulda remembered Gopal as a “heritage of Nepali music”. “He is like an ocean in Nepali music. We have been following his path but there are weaknesses in us too,” Moktan shared.

Hundreds of Nepali singers and fans were present at the memorial programme to pay reverence to Gopal.
