    Kathmandu : An Indian diplomat in Nepal has written an Earth Anthem, highlighting the significance of people to people cooperation between the two South Asian neighbours for a better world.

    Written by Abhay K., who heads the Press, Information, Culture and Education Wing of the Indian embassy in Kathmandu, the Earth Anthem has been composed and sung by Nepalese citizens Sapan Ghimere and Shreya Sotang. Words chosen from six languages including Hindi and Nepalese have been used to write this anthem.

    During a function organised by the Nepal-India Human Development and Friendship Association here, Abhay K. was felicitated by Jhalanath Khanal, former prime minister of Nepal, in the presence of the Indian ambassador Jayant Prasad, UNESCO representative to Nepal Alex Plathe, and veteran Nepali actor Rajesh Hamal.

    Personalities from the world of politics, media, cinema, business, and diplomacy were also present on this occasion.

    "I hope that this Earth Anthem inspires UNESCO or the United Nations to come up with a Global Earth Anthem Challenge and official Earth Anthem for our home planet earth," said Abhay K.

    Speaking on this occasion, the UNESCO representative to Nepal Alex Plathe appreciated the fact that the Earth Anthem comprises six languages including Hindi and Nepali.

    "This is an excellent sign of using global languages (for an Earth Anthem). I hope that your wish (of an official Earth Anthem) is realised. It is a complicated process and my office will communicate it to UNESCO.

    "I hope that the United Nations and my organisation take up this idea further and this becomes a global initiative," the UNESCO representative said.
