RE:  "There has been uprooting of the pillars in the border but no initiative has been made to stop it."

The initiative begins now.  What shall we call it?  Here are a few suggestions in English.  Please add more in any language.

  • Junge Pillar Preservation Coalition (JPPC)
  • Junge Pillar Historical Society (JPHS)
  • Junge Pillar Restoration Initiative (JPRI)

Any suggestions?  What needs to be done in order to promote the initiative and stop the needless destruction of landmarks?

Thank you Tri Dev Acharya.  I understand much better now.  With all political boundaries, especially disputed international boundaries, one can expect ridiculous behavior on both sides.

The pillars were made by Prime Minister Jung Bahadur Rana along the major borders around 1860s (Source). Due to political instability in Nepal and lack of boarder-issue talks.

Who made all these pillars and why is there so much disrespect and neglect for them?
