BHAKTAPUR, March 22: We all know that Bhaktapur is one of the oldest Newar cities. According to national census 2011, the total population of Bhaktapur Municipality is 83,658, belonging to Newari community. Nevertheless, the efforts of making Nepal Bhasa popular here has not been successful as expected.

Flutes that are usually played in every traditional ceremony of the Newar community have become a commercial product now. Madhyapur, Thimi-based Nikosera Flute Group in Bhaktapur is touted to be the first commercial flute group.
