Kathmandu: Ministers, leaders, well-wishers, and artists have expressed their final tribute to the late singer and actor Ravin Tamang. The Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation Minister Sudan Kirati hoisted the national flag for his final homage at the Nepal Music and Drama Academy. Other present artists offered floral tributes and expressed their condolences to Tamang. Minister Kirati mentioned the lack of a designated place for paying homage after the demise of creators during his tenure and stated plans to construct a suitable building.

The government spokesperson, Minister of Communication and Information Technology Rekha Sharma, mentioned the loss of a shining star in the field of arts and conveyed the government’s tribute.

Congress party spokesperson Gagan Thapa expressed sadness over the loss of Tamang, who was renowned as a contemporary singer mentioned in a popular book.

As a tribute to singer Tamang, two of his famous songs, “Ketaketī” and “Gulāb,” were performed. Fans and artists gathered at the premises of the Academy, located in a Maoist-affected area, from early morning on the day of the tribute. Musician Chetan Sapkota, who organized the tribute program in collaboration with the Musician’s Association and the Academy, provided the information.

Preparations are underway to perform the final rites of Ravin Tamang’s mortal remains at Shobha Bhagawati today.
