Tulsi Ghimire, life in his own words

I had a feeling that I had to be popular in any cost. From the childhood I was attracted to movie sector. Born in Kalingpong in India, I used to go to the shootings that were done in the area. My parents had suggested me to become a person who is “understood by the king and known to the people”.

Childhood

In my childhood I studied in Mani Memorial Primary School in Sindebung. Although there were classes for up to grade 4, I left the school after second grade.  In the school, they had an unique way of teaching the alphabets – the teacher used to write the alphabets in floor and we used to lay small pebbles on top of it. From grade 3 to grade 11 I studied in Scottish University Mission Institute (SUMI). Up to grade 5 we didn’t wear any footwear. There was no school dress.

Bombay (Mumbai) Journey

In around 1973 there was a shooting of a Hindi movie, “Romeo in Sikkim” in Sikkim. I went there and met the cameraman to tell that I was crazy to get into film making. He told, “If you are crazy enough why don’t you come to Bombay?” At the age of 22 I went to Bombay to enter the film industry. I went to the cameraman’s home. But, his house wasn’t what I expected. He told me to ‘struggle’.

Rabindra Shrestha, 50-year-old father of a college-age daughter and a minister in-office, eloped with a 22-year-old student in February. Dipak Bhattarai named him the Valentine Hero and I wrote about it in a post at that time.

After a long silence, the couple have re-surfaced as husband and wife. In the photo above, Supekchya has sported, red Sindoor, a sign of a married woman.

Before we argue if they have done something good for the society
, let’s evaluate some of the Facebook posts of Supekchya:

Although they had run away in February, Supekshya waited for more than two months to announce her marriage. On April 22, she changed her profile to married.
