NCSC Dashain Celebration 2019

Dashain, also known as Bada Dashain or Bijaya Dasami is the longest festival of Nepal. Dashain is celebrated for fifteen days with different prayers and offering to the gods. Dashain is also the great harvest festival when the family reunites, celebrates with delicious foods and drinks, exchange gifts and blessings and worships the god together. During the time of Dashain, people from different parts of the world, as well from around the country return to their home to be with the family and celebrate the festival together. 

Dashain is recognised as the Nepali festival all over the world. However, the festival is practised in the other part of the world as well. Dashain is celebrated in some parts of India as “Dashara”. Also, it is celebrated by the Nepali people of Indian hill states of Sikkim, Assam and Darjeeling. The festival is celebrated by Lhotshampa group of Bhutan and the Burmese Gurkhas of Myanmar as well.

Dashain is a very joyous festival of Nepal. It was the day when the parted members of the family met and celebrate. Dashain is a festival of fun with friends and family that goes for 15 days. But as they Dashain approaches, the environment becomes festive as well.
