Bhadau Sabha makes rules every year during “Bhadra” month, the rule for the village is made, and Bhadau Sabha declares the wage rate and decreases the rate of locally made products.

The rate of Agricultural products is declared, and if one goes against the rules and is punished, locals promise to obey the rule touching khukuri, they called it “Dharma Samatne”

Until today the rule is made in the same way but is made in accordance with the constitution of Nepal. Rules are made practically.

Bhujung Village

The life of Bhujung was difficult Before the roadway, they used to carry items on their back for serval days.

They traveled a lot for salt, oil, and foodstuff, at that time they didn’t have cash, so they performed barter trade and exchanged village products.

There is a settlement at the top hill, agricultural land lies down below so they should go up and down to carry produce land is cumbersome.

There is a station of ropeway in Bhujung that makes life easier. The rope can handle heavy items. down there is cultivable land, agricultural items can be brought using this ropeway.

This ropeway was made with the assistance of Japan making farmer’s life easier.

The life of villagers became convenient as time passed. A roadway has been made, and transportation is possible people divert from agriculture to tourism, more tourists visit, and homestay has been established.

Tourists became happy while visiting here, far away from the city the place is perfect for tours, tourism adds income, and life standards increase for villagers.

People used to hunt earlier landlords used to gamble and alcoholism many villagers lost their land and houses, played cards, and made fake documents to take houses and lands.
