As one said, we can give thousands of reasons, why we need to protect and respect our heritage Chiva and Chaitya.
Chiva and Chaitya are situated in streets and courtyards, in a such a way that we can not miss them when we drive or walk in the streets and roads in Kathmandu. So, it is very easy to GET INVOLVED in this protection drive.
a)For Schools, Colleges, Offices, Companies, Clubs:
-If you are organizing any function/gatherings, inform/invite us, we would be happy to talk about our heritage (Chiva/Chaitya)
b)While walking on the street:
–Going round a Chiva – Clockwise whenever you see a Chiva. Those who show disrespect, will be hesitant to do bad deeds.
–If you see some activity of disrespect towards our heritage(like clothe/rope hanging, pouring building materials, garbage around), request the people to refrain from those activities
c)For Saturdays and Holidays and free times
-Give small amount of time(maybe an hour or two a week), take your children and friends to some place where Chiva needs cleaning or uprooting unwanted plants
d)For Social media enthusiasts
–Follow our facebook and Instagram pages
–Post pictures of Chiva and Chaitya in your wall/posts with messages to protect and respect them
