Gopal Dynasty (Bangsa) : Its History & Origin

Gopal Dynasty

 Gopal Dynasty 

It is a well-known fact that hundreds of states rise and fall on the world map with the rise of states. The flag of the existence of a state which was founded on a solid foundation and with a sufficient foundation has been flying for thousands of years till date. But the states that stood on weak foundations and which were manifested in excitement and excitement also disappeared from the map.

When analyzing the political existence of states, the overall basis has to be examined.Looking at only the part, its all-encompassing and meaningful result becomes difficult. An unbroken human chain is human history. The order of human civilization in a particular state is the basis of the ‘standard’ of civilization there.

However, archeological grounds and records are difficult, and future generations are deprived of knowing the glorious history of the place when the winners are only forced to celebrate their contributions.And, the historical side of the issue feels uncomfortable when other social groups in the country that have contributed to the formation of those states deny or overshadow the role of their ancestors.

The longer the history of a state or states, the longer its existence can be maintained. But it is not as easy to see things from afar as it is to see things from near. But politicians, scholars, historians must present their unbroken human civilization to their descendants in a fair manner.

In this context, the emergence of the state in Nepal has been done by distorting the fair contributions made in the history, due to which the existence of the state has sometimes been in crisis. On the one hand, some people are strongly presenting the issue of isolation of Madhes or the plains of the country through their one-sided study, while on the other hand, the current establishment or ruling class is trying to cover up the real history of Nepal and make its community play a small role through its praisers.

Some of the writers of Nepali history have presented the journey of Prithvinarayan Shah’s expansion of the kingdom in a special way (1801 BS) as if the state of Nepal was born from this and pretended to have spent all their energy on his success. Attempts have been made to put all the historical events before that period behind the scenes. While the state called Nepal had come into existence thousands of years ago.
