We feel proud to tell that the ancient legends Buddha, Bhrikuti, Araniko, and Sita were born in Nepal. We have a tradition of recognizing a person after death. While alive, we usually compete with them and try not to believe them as an extraordianary personality.
This page is created to list such not-so-ordinary personality who has gone out of the traditional framework to show their talent. This is a dynamic page, often edited to reflect the current knowledge on the person in question. For example, once a god-figure, Ram Bahadur Bomjom, has made himself not-so-god-like these days.
More legends to be updated later : Khagendra Thapa Magar (Shortest guy in the world), Ram Bahadur Bamjom, Deepak Sharma Bajgain (Longest Marathon Reading), Apa Sherpa (20 Everest summits), Min Bahadur Sherchan (oldest man on the top of Everest). Please suggest missing legends in comment. Thank you!
