October 2019

Most of us know, October is the month of full festivals. More than half days of the month gone by traditional celebrations. Busiest day to NECO for shopping and managing the festivals with children. Dashain, the festival of receiving Tika and blessing from the elder people and Tihar is the festival of brothers and sisters.

On special day of Dashain, families used to gather, take Tika from the elder on the foreheads by kneeling or sitting by cross legged in waiting, (The Tika, made of red color and rice, mixing with curd ) putting Jamara behind the ear or tucked into the hair. It’s all to offer blessings.
After finishing the rituals of putting Tika and blessing, started to have delicious food items.

Then Tihar, “festival of lights”, the best festival for
the children. Beautifully, houses are decorated
with lights and flowers also with traditional
Nepali lamp made of clay filling with oil and
twisting cottons by dipping in the bowl to light.

This the movement after sisters applying Tika to
the foreheads of their brothers to ensure their long
life and for healthy life, with garland in their
necks and exchanging the sweats, fruits and gifts.
