This is an update to a post originally posted on Jan 29, 2012. A new/updated version was posted 2 years ago on Dec 6, 2016. This updated version includes the recent divorces including that of Manoj Gajurel, Reema Bishowkarma, Milan Amatya, Arunima Lamsal and Neelam Dhungana.
It is not only in the Nepali movie industry, divorce among Nepali couple has been in the increasing trend these days. This might be because, compromising is not in the cards of today’s youth. I think, there is nothing wrong to get out of the relationship that is not working out. But, divorce also brings a lot of pain and problems to the both the couple involved. The traditional Nepali society has made it even worse by tagging them ‘bad example’ to the society.
After reports of divorce of Ram Krishna Dhakal and Neelam Shah Dhakal, both of them have written online statements about the incident:
I, Neelam R. Shah would like to make a public statement about all the rumors going around.We have been happily married for over a decade now and will continue to be married for a very long time. We are a small but a happy family and we would really appreciate it if the media and individuals stopped attacking our family constantly.
We are constantly being harassed by the media all across social media and all news outlets and this fire is fueled by the hateful individuals and their comments. The audacity of such people to speak of my family, my familyâ€™s reputation, mental health and well-being is beyond cruelty. I see these people as opportunists who continually try to ruin a good family and their good name by connecting them with individuals that could never happen!
I understand we live in a society where everything seems to be everyoneâ€™s business but it is not. These are instances that you would not want your family to be involved in, talked about, so why do it to others? These are baseless, emotionless and completely ridiculous lies being spread by people who are not our familyâ€™s well-wishers.
This is harassment, mental abuse; cyber bullying and I will continue to defend my family.
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.
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: Continue reading
