The demise of Tyrant Rana rule during 104 years ended due to atrocities in the nation . General public had to always spend life in terror during those days. The life of women used to be even worse.. Besides blockage of access to education, people who performed well in life used to be the target, used to get arrested, beaten up and destroyed. Under such an extremely challenging scenario we are going to describe how a woman Heera Devi Yami managed to spread education despite all the risks involved.

Now Nepali society is transformed to some extent. People are now fully aware of the importance of education. The discrimination between genders is decreasing. However, we should appreciate the brave resistance demonstrated by the teacher Heera Devi Yami and students like Ratneswari Shrestaha, and Laxmi Pravha Bajracharya during the suppression period of the Rana regime.
His old residence area is called Khyo Keb a next to Shanteni Kunja school. From the top floor he used to call out all the neighbours ans display the flesh of pigs shouting” Look Look I have cooked the meat of pig. Look I am eating and it is very tasty. During those days touching pigs used to be banned hence eating pork used to be banned in the society. He used to promote pig meat in the society then. Now every one eats pig meat. Pigs used to be eaten by only untouchables those days. While he was locked up in Nakhu Jail in Kathamandu in 1940s he used to order pork meet and we used to deliver.
