Trending #1 – Paras Shah and Ram Krishna scandal

The video featuring the details of the scandal between Paras Shah and Ram Krishna Dhakal has gained an unprecedented viewership in YouTube. The video attracted a lot of negative comments. But, those who liked the video made it popular without commenting.

Watch video:

Although the video didn’t have any new information, people assumed it to give a negative message. I believe there is more to the story that what is being told by either Ram Krishna Dhakal or the others.

The Truth about Ram Krishna Dhakal and Paras Shah

I would rather say it is a half truth. Because, the full truth won’t be revealed either by Ram Krishna or Paras. The half-truth is:

Can Himani correct the Spoiled prince Paras ?

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.

Paras and Himani talked, relationship – unsure!

The relationship between ex-prince Paras Shah and ex-princess has been going through a rough road for the last few years. Paras and Himani are living separately since Paras’ return from Thailand two years ago. It is not only the relationship with his wife, his relationship with his parents is not good either.

They only meet in special functions and they don’t seem to talk to each others. But, that changed in the party organized to celebrate the Bratabandha of Paras’s son, Hridayendra Shah at Soltae Hotel. The party with invitation to guest exceeding 3,000 was huge and included high level personality in the country. Although the Prime Minister was not seen in the party, the president and other high level official were present.

Hridayendra’s parents Paras and Himani were seen together in the party. They also talked briefly but the way they talked wasn’t that cordial. Paras seem relaxed and comfortable talking to Himani but Himani seem tensed and more focused to the guests than Paras. When Himani smiled at the end of the conversation, Paras didn’t look happy.

A video report:

Only the close relatives were invited in the function. As no journalists were invited to the ceremony, no photos or the videos of the ceremony were released.

I have collected these photos from various sources in Facebook.

sujata_daughter_marriage-2006Ex-prince Paras Shah was accused of shooting at Deputy Prime Minister, Sujata Koirala’s daugher and son-in-law, in a jungle resort, Tiger Tops, in Chitwan.

Sujata, currently in Bangkok, reportedly called PM to inform about the incident that happened on Friday evening. Sujata’s daughter Melanie Koirala Jost and her Bangladeshi husband Rubel Chaudhary ran away from Tiger Tops after the incident and took refuge in a guest house in Gaidakot. Sujata’s daughter got married with Rubel back in 2006. The lavish wedding party was accused of being against Nepalese law.

An Indian newspaper, Indian Express, writes that the Home Minister Bhim Rawal refused to obey the PM Nepal’s order to arrest Paras Shah, who had returned back to Kathmandu on Saturday. Rawal however has promised to probe the incident and punish the culprit.

In the recent days, the members of the royal family had been active in various public  functions in a bid to win support of the public. Paras’ wife, Himani Shah, had also registered a NGO and started her social activities. In recent interviews Paras used to accepted all the wrong-doings of his prince-days and promise that, he has changed himself and will not repeat such mistakes again.

The current incident might ruin all the efforts of the royal family to restore their popularity in the public.
