Reporters Octubre 2013

Namaste Maria.

In this October month.  Women, children and we all teachers enjoy Dashain Festival very goodly, happily with our friends, family and relatives. The khushi Nest starts from 20th of October. Women and Children are coming but some are not coming because some women had gone to village so they will come after Tihar. In Tihar, they need to do Bhai Tika to their elder brothers or younger brothers; they meet their relatives, friends, near and dear ones person. They enjoy with them.

I want to explain you about Tihar Festival. Tihar is festival of five days.

-1st day is Crow day and in Nepal we say Kaag Tihar. In this day people worship early in the morning crow as God with flowers, fruits, Tika, insane and candles. While we are going to eat food at morning we put all things to crow so that crow will come and eat it. we worship crow because from the ancient time we used to believe that if in a house someone is going to die or ill, it gives us awareness and make us feel about this happening or something is going to happen which will be not good.

-2nd day is Dog Tihar, Nepali we say kukur Tihar. In this day, Early in the morning; People worship Dog as a God with flowers, Tika, fruits, candles, insane. Dog will be very happy at that day. When we are ready for food. We give meat with rice to dog so that they feel happy. We worship Dog because if any problem, disease or wrong is going to happen us or in our family from ancient time we used to believe that dog fight for us and take the wrong thing which is going to happen, take diseases and make us healthy. Dog protect us if anything is going to happen to us.

-3rd day is laxmi Puja means the day we worship laxmi. Early in the morning , people used to put the red mud with cow dung in front of everyone house for the Good luck sign. They worship it to begin their day. All people go to worship cow at that day in the morning as we believe it as Goddess. So at evening time people decorate their houses with lights, candles. They burn patakas with their family, friends, relatives and other. They decorate, design and do rangolies woth different colors at their houses and worship Goddess Laxmi with full honor, respect, good thinking, and purity by their hearts with their families to male Goddess Laxmi happy. They put many types of sweets, fruits, candles, insane, coins, money, rice etc. All family members worship Goddess Laxmi in believe that goddess will come at night time in their home and bless them so they make arrangements for it.

4th day is Body worshipping; Nepali we call it Mha Puja. At that day in the family, all family members are doing arrangements and serving each other to worship their body (soul) because people believe that from ancient time our soul will change in the body and we do all activities or work whether it is good or bad. So if we donot have soul then body will be of no use and we could not do work and we could not be what we are up to now. They make rangolis to each family member with colors so that they need to sit their individuals rangolis. Mother, Grandmother they worship all family members from elders to youngers from head to shoulder and after worshipping they eat feast with many items. They enjoy time with their families and friends. They fire and burn patakas. They put lights and candles inside and outside of the houses. They burn insane and light candles to Goddess Laxmi.

-5th and very important day is Bhai Tika. Some people if their village is far and they are coming to work in Kathmandu then people go to their village before Bhai Tika and reach their home. Some women or ladies will go to their brothers’ house and some women or ladies call their brothers to their house to put Bhai Tika. All women/girls/ ladies are very happy from morning. They are preparing food; make arrangements to worship their brothers. They bring what they needed to worship. They prepare all the things to make happy to their brothers. They make manda(rangoli) for each brother for puja and they put many varieties of fruits. They cook sel roti to them and will honor, respect and happiness, blessing their brother. They worship with full process, rules and regulation. Brother put seven colors tika at their forehead by their sisters and mala (flowers) etc. we bring special Bhai Tika Flower to them. All seem to be so much happy, excitement, enjoying. Brothers give gifts to sister’s money or something whatever they like. Elder give blessing to youngers and youngers give love and respect to elders. People celebrate Bhai Tika because ancient time people believe that one women save her brother from the death by worshipping at that day of Bhai Tika by following the rules with full process with seven colors and mala so it make strong bonding relationship between brother and sister with love, respect and prosperity.

Like this we celebrate five Days Tihar Festival.

Some children will come after tihar as they have holidays upto Tihar. They seem to be very happy to celebrate in the khushinest with candles and making rangolis and serving ech other. We gave them Chocolates, Fruits, Juice and biscuits. They also learn how to make handmade greeting as gift for any occasion to give anyone as a gift which saves money and develop their minds and intellectual. Children are doing their homeworks, playing games, reading and learning activities from the khushi nest. The khushi nest will be closed for 3 days from 3rd Laxmi puja to 5th November  Bhai Tika. The khushi nest will Starts from 6th of November after Tihar.

Next month, we are giving order for Nepali, English and Math copies like before with same logo of the khushi nest. We will try to buy 5 cameras with beter or good quality at reasonable price. For those we need more money for cameras and copies.

Wishing you a very Happy Dipawali/Happy Tihar. Take care and warm hug..

Adios…bye…

Namaste Maria.

 In this month, I write a mail to you lately because since two weeks. I am having sick. I have back pain problem so I am sick. When I go to check up with Doctor in Hospital; he said me to take therapy of backbone so I went to take therapy for one week. Now I am taking medicine so I am feeling little fine. I am sorry to send you message lately.

After finishing Dashain festival, we had started classes but many women are not coming regular as they are not coming back from the village. Women have been given Dashain Homework so I had checked during class. In 10am morning class, all women are not coming so who are coming they are studying goodly and doing hard labor. They will come after Tihar. Likewise 1pm group of women they are also doing hard labor to study social studies, coming time they will try to write long literature without looking in the book. At 2pm class of Math, women are also interested to learn and write Mathematics.

All children are also not coming because they are already in village so they will come back after Tihar. But children who are coming we had started the class with learning classes, checking home works of the Dashain Festival time. In free time they had played games. For this October month I teach them how to make useful greetings with colorful papers for Tihar. At that time they seem to be very happy and excited. While we made this type of greeting it is less costly. It is useful and less expensive. Children can wish each other easily through it.

Among this week, During Occasion of Tihar. We celebrate Tihar festival by organizing program with children. They are very happy at that time because Candles are burned, Rangoli has been made and Children are given fruits, biscuits, and chocolates. They seem very happy to take it from us. We all had missed you a lot.

We give 5 days’ holidays for Tihar Festival. Before you go back we had a conversation to paste a ceiling drawing in an office but that man has already gone to his village for Festival so his shop has been already closed. So we will go to order it in coming week and paste it. We will send you picture of it. 

Thank you very much.

Next week, on September from 8 to 10 September women need holidays as they need to go in their own village and house to celebrate the Teej festival with their relatives, friends and family, they need to put fasting and worship god with respect so we decided to give them holidays.

For children, some Children are not coming like Astha Lama, Shirisha Ghimire, Mallika Lungeli Magar, Kritika Tamang, Manish and Anish Pandey and Ranjana Pariyar. Astha Lama is now taking classes lately in the school so she will not come as she is studying in the school late evening. Shirisha Ghimire is going hotel. She is busy in going hotel with her mother so she is not coming. Mallika Lungeli Magar is not coming since so many days nor can we contact with her parents. Kritika Tamang is very small child so she cannot come alone in the cultural center and her mother is pregnant and delivery period. So she is not coming. Manish and Anish Pandey is now taking home tuition with their school teacher; they too are also not coming. Ranjana is not coming since long time so she said she has extra classes in the school because now in schools children of upper level classes; they keep extra study classes to them for reading and writing so in the place of Ranjana we keep a girl name Chhoting Sherpa. Her mother gone abroad since a year so her father work in a trekking so she need the place like the cultural center so she could get better knowledge and ideas. She gets help and support to deal with the study problem too. We teach them how to painting with water color in a paper with imaginative and with their ideas. So they are now learning how to use painting color in a paper. They are now in painting in paper about coloring.

You have made an agreement about running it for years and lawyer had already made an all legal document to run the orphan home and is in process to run the orphan home with kids so
