Ganesh Man Singh is publicly acclaimed as an acceptable leader of democracy. It is a sign of respect that all the Nepalese show towards him that they call him the supreme leader. He was born to a well-to-do family on November 09, 1915 in Itumbahal, Kathmandu. He studied in Darbar High school till grade six. He was expelled from the school for not respecting his fellow students who were Ranas. He went to India to continue his studies. After completing his I.Sc. from Vidyasagar college, he returned to Nepal. As soon as he returned to Nepal, he planned to protest against the autocratic rulers of Nepal. In 1940, he joined the Praja Parishad, the first political party in Nepal. Unfortunately, he was arrested on October 18, 1940. Though he was sentenced to life in prison for anti-Rana activities, he ultimately escaped from Bhadragol Jail in 1944. He spent many years struggling against the partyless Panchayat system.
