Racism is a disease in Nepali society. People are still raising issues of caste and culture. Malvika Subba wrote a long Facebook post in response to ‘Limbu daju bhai’ who criticized her, a Limbu, to marry a person of Newar caste. Malvika asked people to be positive and understand her choice of the best person she could find for her life. It is not a matter of caste but the person you are attached to.
