Late M.r Krishna Bahadur Rajkarnikar during his visit to Kolkata, India, in 1944 A.D. had gone to Kalimandir ( temple of goddess kali) located at Kalightat to get blessings. There was a big crowd of devotees in which Mr. Rajkarnikar saw a 10-11 Year old girl being trapped and he rescued her with great difficulty. The girl’s father was very pleased with him. He took Mr. Rajkarnikar to his home and treated him as a guest for some days. The person who thus treated Mr. Rajkarnikar was a chief loaf maker working in the famous English bakery named Firpo’s where he trained M.r Rajkarnikar to make loaf (bread) as desired by him. He got good training and returned to Kathmandu.
He then started to make bread for the first time in Nepal. Indu Smasher, grandson of the then prime minister Bir Smasher had given away 50 bigas of land to Mr. Rajkarnikar as a reward for his service which was then taken back by the same smasher on some other pretext. If it was not taken back, he would not have the idea to establish the bread industry. So Krishna bahadur Rajkarnikar became as a promoter and pioneer of bakery industry in Nepal. It was he who introduced loaf and cakes in the Nepalese food world.
It was in 1949 A.D. when he established loaf factory under the name of Krishna Pauroti Bhandar at Kamalphokhari. Krishna Pauroti Bhandar legacy still continues and been expanding.
