Compare the degree of success for all these people, i don't think DarshaN Rauniyar fits in that category.

 Kiran - never read or heard anything from her that says she is Nepali.

Samrat - He was somewhat famous at one time for his literary accomplishments.

Darshan - He had one chance to shine and paved a way for future Nepali to embark on political path but he had one chance to shine and he is done!

Daya and Sweta - never heard of em before!

Prabal - Definitely the winner!

Darshan Rauniyar is a very successful man, I would say. He is a self made millionaire from the business that he started from the ground up. He was a pretty successful As a local politican too up until his fight for a congress.

As far as the term "successful" is concerned, every nepali (or other nationalities) is successful in his/her own way if s/he is able to achieve his/her dreams on their own. But yeah, you can say FAMOUS. And there is no doubt that the most famous from your given list is PRABAL GURUNG.

I know many of you would disagree but i would like to think of myself as a most successful Nepalese in the US.

What a waste of time...

champak123: I am not big fan of Darshan Rauniyar but we have to accept the fact that he is the first Nepalese  to announce the candidacy for  US Congress. 
 
Laure bro: What does Bindu Pariyar do ? How is she successful ? I have never heard about her. Can you explain plz ?

Still_Snake: I don’t think Varsha Thapa has reached to the height comparable to Prabal Gurung. What do you think?

 How do you define success? I am not sure if the person comes in the media so often, then that would be a successful person. I know Prabal was not born in Nepal and that's his greatness that he still like to be called a Nepalese. I definitely second that he has done great job in his career. How about the other people who are doing great in the field like academia or industry but his/her name does come in the media. So I believe, success needs to be defined before to be found who is the most successful.....

 Waste of time? Why write "waste of time" if you think it is a waste of your time.  Oxymorons.

Every Nepalese in US are successful indeed in their perspective. Everyone is living in good house, eating good food and wearing good clothes. In fact living somehow better living standard than they had in Nepal. But except their family member and friends no one knows and cares about them. There are some people like Nepalese film actors and singers who are very popular just among the Nepalese community.

But there are only few people who have gained a great achievement in this foreign land, whom even the people of other demography know and appreciate. I am asking about those people.

@it_guy: he is the first nepali to to announce the candidacy for  US Congress.Accordingly he is the first Nepali to be 7th in the voting.wait up people.there were 7 people in the election.
Lesson learnt: A donkey cannot pose like a monkey,coz donkey cannot climb trees.Know your limits and talent and do what your good at.Otherwise just imagine a donkey trying to climb a tree.it might fall down on its back..same happened with Darshan Rauniyar..Have you ever seen him giving a speech.

Like Darshan, there are many more Nepali millionaire across the world, we simply do not hear about them. I was always hesitant about his political carrier cause he had nothing to offer than the average joe. Remember, anybody can run for office in America, it's not a big deal. A porn star ran for the governer of california and she did pretty good. A little bit of money and some connections will take you a long way, but don't expect people to take you seriously. I didn't see anything unique in Darshan's platform even though he ran for office in a very liberal state, being brown with that much of an accent, the bar was already set low. But again, that is just my opinion. However I do admire his success and his effort, wish him a good luck.
