People's Review - - NATION - By our Re­porter

So­cial worker and busi­ness­man Thanesh­war Ghimire, 86, passed away on 30 July. Born in a vil­lage near Memmo, Myan­mar, Ghimire is one among the pioneer trans­porta­tion en­trepreneurs. When Ghimire was in Myan­mar, he had played a vi­tal role in con­struc­tion of the Durga Tem­ple in Memmo. He had planted a Pi­pal tree in the Tem­ple premises by car­ry­ing the plant from Lumbini. He was in­volved in dif­fer­ent busi­nesses, in­clud­ing trans­port ser­vice in Memmo city. When the then gov­ern­ment in Myan­mar de­cided to na­tion­al­ize peo­ple's prop­erty in Myan­mar, King Ma­hen­dra asked him to come to Nepal and start his busi­ness here. By re­spect­ing King Ma­hen­dra's re­quest, Ghimire re­turned to Nepal and started his trans­port busi­ness in Bhaira­hawa – Lumbini Bus Ser­vice. He opened Durga Mo­tor Parts store in He­tauda and op­er­ated truck ser­vice in Kath­mandu, Pokhara, But­wal etc cities. He also started clothes store in Bhaira­hawa. By in­tro­duc­ing 16 buses, he launched Des­b­hakta Bus ser­vice and es­tab­lished petrol pumps in Malekhu, Palpa, But­wal, Bhaira­hawa and Kath­mandu. As he was a re­li­gious per­son, he con­structed a Durga Tem­ple and Gayetri Tem­ple in Malekhu for eter­nal peace of the de­parted souls. He also con­structed Dhar­mashala and pub­lic toi­let in Malekhu. He played a lead­ing role for the con­struc­tion of the Durga Tem­ple in Bhaira­hawa. Later, he launched Asian Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals Pvt Ltd with the aim of pro­duc­ing qual­ity and stan­dard medicines. Late Ghimire is sur­vived by three sons -- Shanker, Kr­ishna and Ganesh and four daugh­ters Maya Khanal, Durga Mainali, Shanti Kan­del and Devi Khanal. From the demise of Ghimire, the na­tion has lost an en­tre­pre­neur who had dreamed for trans­for­ma­tion of the na­tion as a self-re­liant and de­vel­oped na­tion. Peo­ple's Re­view fam­ily prays to the Almighty for the eter­nal peace of the de­parted soul and ex­tends heart­felt con­do­lences to the mem­bers of the be­reaved fam­ily.
