Everybody knows – Paras Shah is a spoiled prince (an ex-prince to be politically correct although there are still some people who prefer to call him a prince.) I prepared a biography video of Paras a while ago. The video got almost 900K views in a year. That is an indication that he still has the charm of the royalty – he is still a celebrity.
Paras wasn’t born to be a crown prince. His father wasn’t born to be a king. But, luck made Gyanendra a king of Nepal – twice in his lifetime. The first time he became the king he was a child. The four-year-old king didn’t get India’s approval and was dethroned when his grand father – King Tribhuwan returned back from exile in India.
The second time he became lucky again. When all the family members of King Birendra were killed in the 2001 royal massacre, Gyanendra was crowned the new king in the year. Gyanendra waited a few months before announcing his son, Paras, the crown prince. But, Paras’s dream to become the king of Nepal was cut-short when monarchy was abolished in 2008.
