  3. Tika koirala is my father.I love him very much because i never forgot him.

    • My dear Yadhap Koirala: You have sent your message to bhutanusa.com. This shows you are a very smart young boy. You are only 12, but you have written beautiful words, and have expressed your true feelings. . Yes, we all know you loved your father so much. Your brother Narayan sent me pictures of all the family members, and I have seen your picture too. Your other brother’s name is Shahrukh, and this is a very well known in the world.

      Your father was a great social worker, and people loved him so much. Bhutanese people from all over the world are still sending their condolences to your family. Millions of people are sad over the death of your father, because he was special. Look at me. I am totally starnger to you. I am not even a Bhutanese. I am sitting here at least 1000 miles away from your home, and I have gone home to home of Bhutanese people living here in Massachusetts, telling them to help your family.

      My dear, God is very kind to all of us and He loves us all. But sometimes He takes someone away from us whom we love so much, and nothing we can about that. We just have to accept His way.

      I cried so much when my father died. My friends told me to stop crying. I could not stop crying because I knew that now I would never be able to talk to my father and would never be able to hold his hand ever again. I cried and continued crying. Now , after 5 years, I do not cry anymore. But every time I see his picture, I always say, “Abba (Dad), I love you. I always will be loving you”.

      So, take it from me, because I know how it feels like losing someone very very close to you. Be strong: You have to take care of your sister, Januka and other brothers and sisters. Never stop loving all of your sisters and brothers. Find your beloved father’s face in your elder brother, Narayan’s face or in your other brother, Sharukh’s face. And never let your Mata Jee (Mom) feel sad. Always try your best to keep her happy. All of you brothers and sisters, Mrs. Madhavi Sharma, Mr. Narayan Koiral, Mr. Shahrukh Koirala and Miss Januka Koirala, must do your best to keep your mom happy.

      All of you family members have to take very good care of your Mata Jee.

      God Bless You and all of your family.

  5. I was shocked to learn the sudden and tragic death of Tika Ram Koirala in a fatal car crash. Late Koiralla was a true social worker and committed community volunteer. His death is an irrepairable lost to the bhutanese community. At this hour of immense grief I on behalf of bhutanese community in Durham, North Carolina and myself, express our profound condolence to the grieving family members. We pray to the god to provide peace and tranquillity to the bereaved family. May the departed soul rest in peace.

  6. Today, January 1, 2010, I contacted Mr. Tika Ram Koirala’s son, Mr. Narayan Koirala who is only 18 year old. He requested me to appeal to Bhutanese/Nepalese community to send him donations. He has a 20-year sister who got married 3 months ago. All other sisters and brothers are under 14.

    Mr. Narayan Koirala gave me permission to give out his phone number and other personal information so that people can contact him directly.

    Here is his address:

    Mr. Narayan Koirala
    Apt. # 286
    Turtle Creek Apartments
    121 Hickory Trace Drive
    Nashville, TN 37211-7102
    Phone: 615-753-8153
    Email address: narayan_koirala@yahoo.com

    I appeal all the readers to help r. Koirala’s family as much as they can.
    Thanks a lot.

    Mr. Shahid M. Pasha

  7. I was lucky enough to establish a direct contact with Mr. Koirala’s family. I did talk to the family over the phone, and it is my understanding that this family needs a lot of financial, emotional and social help and support. I wish I had millions of dollars to give away but unfortunatley I do not have that kind of money.

    Here in Massachusetts, Bhutanese community members are celebrating Christmas and new year night, and there, about 1000 miles away, at “Hickory Trace Drive, Nashville, TN”, a Bhutanese family members are mourning the death of Mr. Tika Ram Koirala.

    Probably, Mr. Koirala’s family will recieve a large sum (may be $50,000) in compensation from auto insurance, or may be they will not recieve any money because the driver of other car was an illegal immigrant and probably had no auto insurance. But at present, this family does need financial support from Bhutanese community members all over the United States and all over the world.

    I suggest all readers to donate at least $1 to help this family. I also suggest bhutanusa.com to lead in helping this family by setting up a help center. bhutanusa.com has ability and resources to reach victim’s family, collect donations for this family from Bhutanese community and then send donations to the family.

    I am not a Bhutanese but I will be the first one to send my donation check to bhutanusa.com. Who says I have to be a Bhutanese to help a Bhutanese???

    By the way, I personally know some of Mr. Tika Ram Koirala’s relatives living here in West Springfield, Massachusetts.

  8. A true social worker who sweated a lot for Bhutanese community . We missed him a lot but we all from Harrisburg city PA in USA pray almighty to give power to his family in Tennesse & Bhutan. We knew that his (Tika Ram’s ) old parents are still awaiting for Human Rights in Bhutan & longing to see him. The whole Bhutanese community feels a lot to this tragic scene. Let us not hope to see such scenes in 2010. YP Acharya.

  10. Can someone in Tennessee please send me the address of Mr. Tika Koirala’s family and their phone number?
    My email address is:

    I also need the address and phone numbers of Ms. Moni Rai and two other passengers in her car who were with Mr. Koirala in the car but fortunatly survived. I want to reach out to them to offer my help to secure their rights. I also want to make sure that illegal Spanish immigrant who hit the victims, gets punished and does not get a green card.

    Mr. Tika Koirala ‘s death is a great tragedy. I offer my condolence to his family. It is so sad to see someone losing his life who came to America after suffering in refugee camps for 18 years.

    Mr. Koirala was hit by a car driven by a Spanish who was illegal in this country and was drunk.

    In Nashville, Tennessee, so many innocent people have been killed by those Spanish drivers who came to America illegally. They do not have a right to live in this country even for one minute, let alone driving around and killing innocent people.
    Immigration officials have put that Spanish man in jail but probably he will be out soon on bail and probably will be driving around again endagering other innocent people.

    Please read this news report on the accident that was published in Tennessee’s local newspaper:

    A man believed to be in the country illegally has been charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication in connection with a fatal Christmas morning wreck.
    Ramon Nerl Olea, 22, was northbound on Haywood Lane at 8:30 a.m. when he lost control of his car and crashed into a vehicle driven by Moni Rai, 22, police said in a news release.
    Tika Koirala, 46, of Hickory Trace Drive, a passenger in the back seat of Rai’s car, was critically injured and died Tuesday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
    Officers reported that Olea smelled of alcohol and a blood sample was taken for testing. He was treated at Vanderbilt and released into the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
    ICE placed a federal immigration hold on Olea, saying he is suspected of illegally entering the country.
    Rai and two other passengers in her car were treated and released at Southern Hills Medical Center.
