I am a begineer with Python and I was wondering why cant we use the dunder method outside a class ? or maybe I am doing it wrong and not aware of any method.

What I have tried:

Google and other online resources

You may use them outside (if I got you):
Python
class Foo:
  
    def __str__(self):
      return "a foo"

f = Foo()
print( f.__str__())

See The Python Tutorial — Python 3.7.9 documentation[^].

This works fine:
Python
def __foobar__():
    print("foobar")

__foobar__()
