Welcome to my blog.

Jwajalapa everybody. Myself Rukshana Kapali, a  transgender girl from Yala(Patan) , Nepa Valley, Nepal Mandala, Nepal. My nickname is “Minjala” मिँजला, which means “the flashes of fire” in Nepal Bhasa. I am here in this page to share my view points on different issues and topics. I started my social activism since I was 14 and now I am 19.

My working fields are LGBTI rights, Feminism, Newa movement, Indigenous people and ethnic groups, #SaveNepaValley initiation, Comprehensive Development, Heritage issues, Nepal Bhasa, Language rights, Linguistics, Minority groups, Body Image and Body Shaming, Online harassment, and bringing intersectionality on all these issues.

Lets make our Newa Civilization great again!

You can read my posts in three languages. I write in two Nepalese languages: Nepal Bhasa and Gorkhali/Parbate/Khas language, and in English. Here are the lists:

Highlighting: My personal experience in taking birth as a transgender

Gender and Sexuality terminologies in Nepal Bhasa

Mini research on Balambu: 

An article where I have dumped informative resources on: Kathmandu degrading in the name of development

The articles dumped can be in any language. I put it here so that people could easily make link with diverse kind of resources through a page click.

Another important issue is The Relevance of Ancient Newa Urban Settlement Patterns to the Global Sustainability Crisis and The Newa Architecture & building technology: Indigenous knowledge for earthquake resistance

Wake up Newars message by me

This section take you to articles regarding the hidden history of Prithvi Narayan Shah and the Gorkha conquest

These two sections One and Two directs you to a page with my quotes.

The following are the links to pages with the National Report of Nepal on Same sex marriage 

The study was done in National Level with formation of committee members by the Supreme Court order and the report contains facts on same sex marriage, and examples from around world and suggests Nepal to legalize same sex marriage. The document is available in Blue Diamond Society, however, I have digitized this in my blog with three section divisions.

  1. समलिङ्गी विवाहसम्बन्धी अध्ययन प्रतिवेदन- भाग १
  2. समलिङ्गी विवाहसम्बन्धी अध्ययन प्रतिवेदन- भाग २
  3. समलिङ्गी विवाहसम्बन्धी अध्ययन प्रतिवेदन- भाग ३

There is a page of mine that helps in Sex education for transwomen and men who have sex with them

I am also campaigning that we are Not the third sex and this term is not appropriate to be used for transgenders

I have been challenging the stigmatization of Newa people while they speak Khas/Parbate language and have started this new trend of  Newa Khas Vernacular– a way traditional Newars speak, also a satire to those people who tease Newars  speaking Khas language with Newa accent.

Initiated events

Few events which I have initiated through Facebook and am trying to establish or celebrate these events.

  1. International Day for Men who are attracted to Transwomen– April 5
  2. International LGBTI Day– June 17
  3. National LGBTI Day(Nepal)– Paush 6
  4. Decentralized Nepal Campaign
  5. Save Nepa Valley Movement(part of the core team)

  2. Rukshana you are a brave young lady. Work hard, read as much as you can, travel. Aim for nothing but the very best for yourself. I was glad to know you want to be a linguist and Nepal Bhasa expert. And I am confident, you will make an excellent scholar. You are smart, hardworking and motivated. At seventeen, you have taken control of your life and destiny. You have embraced your identity and you have refused to give up your dreams despite immense pressure from the society. I am so proud of you.

    My best wishes are with you.
