An enormous earthquake strikes the Nepal on 12 May 2015 with a series of aftershocks that causes thousands of deaths demolish and collapse houses. Similarly, it directly affects the daily life of people in terms of survival. However, the most important thing observed, and experienced by the Nepali people just after the earthquake was “Togetherness” because, it bond the people from diverse community with different religion and culture. That was the unique character shown by Nepali people during the post-earthquake days and was the strength of the Nepali people for a cohesive society. It encourages people to unite, gather at a place, interact and co-operate each other, share the feelings, eat and enjoy together, utilize locally available materials like a living in a joint family with members. That also helps the people to prevent from the fear of the aftershocks and hard life living with psychological tension as well as easy and jointly cope with the worst situation occurred by an earthquake. Finally, Nepali people learned and realized that they are rich in diversity with different ethnicity, culture, and religion. They have their own local knowledge system for survival via managing locally available resources that are vital for coping with disaster and make them resilience to construct and sustain cohesive and secure society. Therefore, togetherness they experience during the crisis should be continued and replicated in normal situation as well.
