INTRODUCTION:

PurnaAmong hundreds of castes of Nepal, Sherpa are the one of the ethnic communities living in the Himalayas of Nepal. This community is a permanent resident of the Himalayas since thousands of years. They are born as Himalayas themselves. They have got their own culture, religions, language, tradition and their own identification which has made them totally different from several castes those live in Nepal. Buddhism is their religion which they have been following since their origin. Animal husbandry is their primary occupation. In addition to this, they have also adopted the occupation of medicinal herb collection from the Himalayas. Time has changed and so have they. These days Sherpa have not only confined themselves within these territories, but also have done amazing jobs in politics, social works, artistic field, industries, and tourism sectors too. In 1953, Tenzing Norkey Sherpa climbed the highest mountain peak of the world “Mt. Everest” for the first time and created a platform for several other sherpas who managed to follow his footsteps and included their names in the Guinness Book of World Records by climbing several mountains of Nepal and throughout the entire world. They have always been co-operating with the expeditors of the world who come to Nepal as mountaineers. Some of the sherpas have managed to enhance their economy from tourism and consequently it has helped a lot to enhance the economy of Nepal.

PurnaSherpas have contributed in the social and political sector of Nepal. Several schools have been opened in the Himalayas of Nepal by the sherpas. It has helped a lot to improve the literacy rate of Nepal. The poor and needy people who had no food to eat at all have been able to achieve education abroad due to the scholarships provided by the sherpas. Education has always been a matter of importance and sherpas have tried a lot from their side to the education sector.

As sherpas are born as Himalis, mountains have always been important for them. People explore the Himalayas but they don’t care about the waste materials they leave there. Sherpas are the one who care about their Himalayas and they have conducted several Everest cleaning campaigns and have contributed a lot to keep the Himalayas natural as they were before. The consequence of global warming has affected the Himalayas and people have forgotten about it but sherpas are the one who have tried to make the Himalayas as safe as possible by conducting several campaigns against the global warming and their effect in the Himalayas of Nepal. Sherpas have always been able to make Nepal proud and have always tried their best to enhance Nepal externally and internally too. But has the government of Nepal understood it? The answer always comes pessimistic. It is our responsibility to bring out the problems the Sherpa face, to promote the historical ethnicity, to conserve the ecology and anthropology and natural Nepal. We have tried to prepare a documentary with a vision of preserving it.
