Democracy Day or Rashtriya Prajatantra Diwas is celebrated every year on Falgun 7th. It is a public holiday in Nepal. This day is celebrated in Nepal to commemorate the day when Nepalese were released from the clutches of 104-year-long Rana autocracy on February 18, 1951.
The People of Nepal experienced a life full of nightmares while under the ruling power of the Ranas. The Ranas had taken away a lot of opportunities away from the people while the members of their family were enjoying the extravagance and abundance that they had from the highest office. Anomalies such as corruption, discrimination and violent behaviors have ruled the country during this period of Nepali history.
