The discrimination faced by the Tamang caste in “Masinya”

In 1910, Jung Bahadur Rana promulgated the Civil Code. Even after 170 years of its existence, the effect of this Act is still there. The act divided classes on the basis of caste. If Brahmins and Chhetri became the upper class, caste discrimination like Namasinya Matwali and Masinya Matwali were formulated. The play ‘Masinya’ has been prepared on the theme of its social, psychological and cultural impact.

Poet and author Raju Syangtan claimed that the play “Masinya narrates the tale of the stunning Tamang settlement’s decline from Janga Bahadur’s time until the present. We composed poetry, but feeling that this was insufficient, we added a play. We have selected the theatrical form to convey the tale of our personal suffering, the ground that holds our uniqueness.”

Mohan Gole Tamang, president of Nepal Tamang Ghedung, Ganesh Yonjan, president of Tamsaling Sangharsh Samiti, and others participated in the program along with the author.

Buddhi Tamang and Sonam Lama have directed and conceived the play, which will be staged at Mandala Theater until Magh 28 every day except Monday at 5 p.m. Information about this was given at a press conference held on Tuesday. Ramila Moktan, Bishnu Moktan, Rabin Dong, Sunil Tamang, Rohni Lama, Sheetal Thokar, Rupesh Tamang, Ingihopo Sunuwar and others have acted in the play.
