Child of the crown ruler (later, from 1955, lord) Mahendra, Birendra was instructed at St. Joseph's College (Darjeeling, India), Eton College (England), Tokyo University (1967), and Harvard University (1967–68) and ventured out widely before consenting to the honored position on his dad's demise on January 31, 1972. (He was delegated on February 24, 1975.) Birendra proceeded with the imperious custom of his dad, who had broken up the chosen parliament in 1960 and banned political gatherings in the constitution of 1962; without a doubt, for a period, Birendra was one of the world's few staying total rulers. He figured out how to keep up Nepal's freedom in spite of infringing impacts by India, China, and the Soviet Union. Amid his rule Nepal was opened up to broad tourism.
