Few days ago, I saw a news about a delegation to Home Minister regarding Sharad’s Citizenship lead by our Taekwando Star Dipak Bista who is the president of Nepal National and International Players Association (NNIPA).
Sharad Vesawkar has been playing for the country for the last eight years but now facing tremendous problems and pressure in the lack of citizenship. Vesawkar, is a son of a Nepali mother and a foreign father and born in UAE, a star of Nepali cricket and serving Nepal to make us proud Nepali.
He lost his father in 2002 while he was playing U-14 Asia Cup for the country in the UAE. He is one of the major players in Nepali squad. He had important role when Nepal won U-19 Asia Cup in 2003 and 2005 as well as ICC World Cricket League Division 5 last month where he scored his maiden century as senior player and earlier he had scored another century in the level of U15.
By the way, here in Korea, as a son or daughter of a mother can get a citizenship but he or she has to fallow their mothers cast. Interestingly, women are not forced to change their cast after marrying to other cast in Korea. And for Sharad I suggest him to take his mother’s cast which will be more familiar to our society.
