Respected NASeA’s Life members, yearly members and all community leaders and members,


  1. With the immense pleasure and pride, first of all, I would like to express my heartfelt sincere thanks to all life members, yearly members and well-wishers who elected me unanimously as the President of Nepalese Association in Southeast America ( NASeA ) for the tenure  of 2021-23 on 21 November 2021. I am fully honored and overwhelmingly delighted with all yours trusts, hope and confidence extended towards me to lead this beloved organization NASeA with the glorious history of more than three decades. Along with me , the entire executive committee of NASeA ( 2021-23) has been elected unanimously. I would also like to congratulate all my executive team of excellence and eagerly looking forward to working together for the betterment of our community.


  1. After the pandemic of COVID 19, this was our first in person gathering in Orlando, Florida to make the 16 th NASeA / ANMA joint convention a historically grand success . In spite of COVID 19 Pandemic, this joint convention in presence of more than 20 various organization was grand success which was jointly hosted by Nepalese Association of Florida ( NAF)  , INLS Fl Chapter , Nepali Community Center Orlando ( NCCO) , Newah Organization of America – Fl Chapter , Madhesi Association in America ( MAA) – Fl Chapter , Greater Orlando Lord Buddha  Lions Club , Orlando and NRNA NCC Fl Chapter  .I sincerely thank all these organizations  for helping to make this  entire joint convention a historically grand success . Special thanks go to all presidents and their entire team of these organizations Dr Niraj Shretha , Deep Karki , Nijananda Malla , Dr Rajendra Shakya , Prem Singh , Nijananda Malla and Bikash Devkota respectively .


  1. The theme of this joint convention “Facing the future together “ is clearly imparting the message to all of us to face any kind of opportunities or challenges together, meaning the UNITY among us in our community is the utmost important factor to be successful in any aspects in the days ahead . We are aware and clearly understood the crux of the famous proverb “United We Stand, Divided We Fall “ . 100 is always stronger than 99 and in the same way 99 is always weaker than 100. 100 is the result of full unity. We must maintain it . Any Institution or organization is intended to remain forever whereas any position or person or executive committee works for certain time / tenure only to run that institution/ organization. Such organization is the common home for all community members which must accommodate each and every one of them. So we must always enforce to make our common Home more stronger and impactful. I would again like to reiterate to fulfill my promise that I would focus to make our community United which eventually make our beloved organization NASeA stronger and more reputable.


  1. I Would like to thank the chief Guest of this joint convention officiating Ambassador of Nepal to USA His Excellency Kumar Raj Kharel for his valuable time .I would like to thank our election commission led by chief election commission Gyanendra Gadal and two commissioners Basu Phulara and Ram Krishna Wagle who had accomplished the overall election process in a fair , transparent and democratic way . ANMA former president and NRN NCC USA Midwest VP Gopendra Bhattarai deserves a big thanks as well. We are thankful to all the presidents and / or representatives of more than 20 organizations for their valuable presence , active participation and sharing their success stories with everyone . All the guidelines and suggestions of all former presidents of NASeA helped to make this successful convention. The physical participation and direct help on various activities of former presidents Raja Ghale , Dr Ram C Baral and Bimal Nepal to make this joint convention a grand success is truly appreciated. We express our sincere thanks to delegate Harry Bhandary , The Maryland General Assembly for the official citation to recognize NASeA and ANMA for the 16 years of empowering the Nepalese Diaspora in America .


  1. Every one of our actions must be guided and controlled by NASeA’s Bylaws. I and my entire executive Board assures that we will strictly uphold and implement the bylaws. I am also very much proud to have this entire team of excellence representing 9 different states with 5 female executives including various expertise and professions. To meet the expectations of all community, I would certainly focus to make NASeA more inclusive, more dynamic, transparent, effective, and praiseworthy for our community. We surely keep NASeA out of politics and always non polarized. I believe in group leadership rather than on individual leadership and always eagerly waiting to listen your valuable feedback, comments, suggestions and any kind of innovative ideas. By myself alone, I may not accomplish many thing effectively but together we can do everything perfectly. Let us work together to lift NASeA image up to a next newer height.


  1. I am fully confident that this executive committee will receive your full cooperation, help, support and suggestions all the times in the days ahead.
