Bihari Krishna Ethnographic Research Fund established
Mr Mainali also made an appeal to the audience to contribute to the newly established Baha Social Science Research Fund, of which the Bihari Krishna Ethnographic Research Fund would form an integral part. He announced that members of the Social Science Baha had already contributed a sum of Rs 150,000 towards the setting up of the Baha Social Science Research Fund and efforts would be made to increase the funds through contributions. Social Science Baha has already undertaken to contribute Rs 10,000 every month towards the Fund. He further said that under the Baha Social Science Research Fund, a student had been provided with the Social Science Baha Scholarship at the Nepā School of Social Sciences and Humanities.
Chair of Social Science Baha, Nirmal Man Tuladhar, received the cheque on behalf of the Baha. Mr Tuladhar thanked Mr Shrestha for reposing trust in the Baha and called on the gathering to witness the Baha’s commitment to live up to his expectations.
