Greetings & Messages
very nice to meet the Tamagithemai in UK during the recent Tamagi
picnic held on 12th of July. I was very surprised to learn
that so many member from Tamagi are settling in UK.
special thanks to the organising committee and those people
helping in action for making the picnic successful. I hope
this this spirit will continue also in the future.
regards, Hem in Norway.
to see photographs of Tamagi and Bhichok annual get together in
the Tamagi website. The
website is keeping us all updated with the latest news and
photographs of Tamagians from all over the world.
Information and photographs provided are manifest to the modern
technology available in the 21st century. The design and simplicity are there. Especially, the photographs are very
nice, whereby one can clearly see the current faces of his or her friends
and families. The group photographs are very clear from the
all, the website is bringing all Tamagian families together, who
are separated from each other from this tiny village for so many
years for variety of reasons. It is nice to get to know so
many people, who are now living abroad. I think the
initiative taken is a great success, and I hope this wonderful
work will continue in the future. Well done [sybash].
I would like to send my best wishes to all Tamagians all over the world .through this website

Thank you for the information. It is indeed a creation of
a person who live, heart and mind, with Tamagi. - a special thanks to the
special person. I am thankful to all who contributed in the development of
the website. I am surprised to see the population of Tamagi living
in U.K. I hope everyone enjoyed the first ever tamagithemai picnic in UK.
I truly believe that this website will bring Tamagithemai closer particularly
among the young people. A pleasant news to me is the "Best Student Award
in Math to Prakriti". I hope the success to Prakriti will be the source of
inspiration to other young people. Please give my congratulation to her. Love
and Aasirbad from Chitwan!

Dear Tamagithemae (Tamagi
Family) in UK,
>A very warm greetings from Norway!
>It was interesting and wonderful to see the picture of Tamagi Pariwar in UK and
also to learn that so many of us are living in UK. I realise that many of you in
the picture are difficult for me to identify. However, I can easily recall if
some days some one explain me about their parents or grand parents. Hopefully,
this occasions will certainly come.
>Time has changed and along with this the world trend of moving people over the
country border has also changed. Besides and specifically, Nepal's own problem
has planted the main reasons so that so many of us are today meeting in UK than
for example at Tamagi. If Nepal's development situation would be favourable and
had moved forward in accordance to our new generations demand, I am sure the
scenario would be different.
>As an almost(?) senior generation of Tamagi, I have some points which I want to
put forward hoping that our future might be successful and at the same time the
coming generation's will not forget their native village (Tamagi).
>1. I think, no matter which part of this world (geographically) we might be
living in or working with, we shall always be an individual of Tamagi. This is
our identity. To strengthen and sustain this identity, two important process of
actions are necessary to be maintained. (A): Continue to visit your own village
time and again and also try to follow-up the contemporary changes taking place
there. If possible, try to be participatory in the process. In terms of
participation, one does not need to be present physically at Tamagi to be
considered as a participatory member, but keeping your own curiosity alive and
enhance eagerness to contribute some thing/resources/ideas/thoughts for Tamagi
would be the vital contribution and is of course active participatory or
>The other point (B): Keep on going to talk/explain to your coming generation
(children) about Tamagi. Be able to feed them at least some words, have good
pictures of Tamagi in album or in the wall, collect articles if any written
about Tamagi, inform or tell about the happenings at Tamagi and its surroundings
and many more. By doing this to the coming generations while they are still in
the stage of childhood or young, they will have good impression and memory of
Tamagi. Tamagi will then always survive.
>2. WE, Tamagi people should be proud on our capacities: like having good GUTS
of entrepreneurship, high moral obligations, straight forward behaviour,
egalitarian approach and for excellent capacity to stand on our own feets. If
one in general term analyse the general statistic of Tamagi people during the
last 40-50 years, we score very high mark compared to thousands of villages in
the remote part of Nepal. Being such a tiny village in the Himalayan region of
Nepal, its ability to sustain life in an acceptable manner in the Nepali context
is significantly high. This is of course in various discipline. And this is very
good. Of course, the scenario here is compared with the contemporary situation
of Nepal. To my mind, these values and the attitude should be continued to
>3. Finally, the most valuable tools and capacity to survive in the future would
be Education. Every means and resources should be prioritised to spend in this
sectors. This should be started as early as possible. Education environment at
home is very important in this regard. This is of course a very long process and
takes generations before we really notice its significance. The most strongest
tools/weapons or gift a parent can give to their children today is Education,
education with big E. The education could be of diverse and in various areas.
Diversity in all discipline is a rich quality of any society, I think.
>Well, a professional and attractive but well thought stickers of Tamagi would
be in its own place. If some one could have creative ideas and thought on this.
A Tamagi Bulletin publishing 2-3 times an year would also be very positive to
hold keeping Tamagithemae together around the world. Pictures, news related to
our native village and its surroundings and interviews could be of the contents.
>This much for this time and thanks a lot for sending me the picture. I do hope
that I might be able to participate in the next planned Tamagi Picnic of 2008 in
UK. Many thanks to our VDC chairperson, Mr. Bhakta Bahadur Gurung who I assume
took real initiative to arrange this picnic. He was keeping me oriented about
the initiative. This tradition should be continued also in the future and I do
hope for that...
>With lots of regards from me and my family in Norway,

Mr Santosh Gurung, Camberley, UK (08/08/07)
am delighted with our website which has just been launched. We now
have a great opportunity to unite our villagers through this website from
all over the world. I would like to thank the webmaster for his
Message from Mr Prakash Gurung, Sydney,
"I am honoured to be a part of
this big family". It is wonderful to see a website
totally dedicated to our village or our original home. All praises go to
you and all the tamagians out there for this new effort to unite us
through the help of the worldwideweb. I am sure the website
will bring us closer to our relative whom, we
have not met or seen for a very long time.
