Bara and Little Buddha

Today, I had a free time to enter cyber and learn some information through Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, since it is weekend for me in Doha, Qatar. Here, I have extracted some of them and hope it may be useful for the viewers.

As you know, I am originally from Bara District of Nepal, I feel an honour to demonstrate some facts of the district.

Bara district, a part of Narayani zone, is one of the seventy-five districts of Nepal, a landlocked country of South Asia. The district, with Kalaiya as its district headquarters, covers an area of 1,190 km² and has a population (2001) of 559,135. Source:

This is another interesting information about little Buddha:

Ram Bahadur Bomjon (born May 9, 1989, sometimes Bomjan or Banjan), also known as Palden Dorje (his official Buddhist name), is from Ratanapuri village, Bara district, Nepal and drew thousands of visitors and media attention for spending months in meditation, allegedly without food or water, although this claim is widely contested. Nicknamed the Buddha Boy, he began his meditation on May 16, 2005, disappeared from his hometown on March 11, 2006, and reappeared elsewhere in Nepal on December 26, 2006 only to leave again on March 8, 2007. On March 26, 2007, inspectors from the Area Police Post Nijgadh in Ratanpuri found Bomjon meditating inside a bunker-like square ditch of seven feet.
