Vijaya Dashami

The greatest significant of this festival is to receive Tika from their parent's hand. Scriptures say "If we take Tika from our parents' hand on Dashain or Bijaya dashami, our wishes will be fulfilled by the God soon because it describes that there's no God above our parents for us". That's why the dispersed families try to unite together at their home in this festival. Not only from their parents; also have they received Tika as a blessing from the elders' hand as well. Before some people crowd to Narayanhiti Royal palace to receive the Tika from the King's hand on Dashain.

People renovate their houses and its compounds nicely and make it more shinning at this time; and everywhere the streets also looks very neat and clean than the usual time. In the village, the houses are besmeared by red mud and white chalk, which looks quite brightened and beautiful. People rush to buy new clothes and festival requirements in the market and the whole market looks very busy and crowed at this time. The main motto of this festival is to enjoy with their family eating delicious foods and wearing new brand clothes. The Tika is prepared by mixing the rice with yogurt and colors.


This is the beginning day of the festival. On this first day the people keep Jamara in their houses. Jamara is the grown collection seedlings of barley and corn. The barley and corn is soaked in water a day before and it's sown on a leaf plate filled with black mud. Everyday a little water should be sprinkled on it; and on the tenth day of the festival, which is called the Badashain day (the biggest day of the festival); this seedling is given to the Tika receiver.


Navaratri begins since the Ghatasthapana day and ends after nine bay before the Tika receiving day. During these nine days different features of Kumari Goddesses are worshipped. They are, Kumari; Trimurti; Kalyani; Rohini; Kali; Chandi; Shovaki; Durga; and Bhadra. People worship nine different virgin girls separately on these different days to them considering as the features of Goddess Bhawani; and contribute them foods, clothes and money as per their capacity.

The seventh day of the festival is called the Fulpati and it's celebrated grandly all over the country by playing traditional musical band Panchai Baja and sacrificing small he-goat and he-buffalo. The Fulpati is the combination of a few verities of plants viz. sugarcane marigold and etc flowers'. Lot of spectators assembles to look this fete in their respective places.

A very superb Fulpati feu de joie takes place at Nepal Army Pavilion at Tundikhel in Kathmandu on this day. The Fulpati coterie comes from Gorkha palace where the Shah dynasty King's used to sojourn a long time back there. Thousands of people flock to see this fete in Tundikhel on this day; where before His Majesties the King, Queen and the Royal families also used to attend to grace this fair. Also HMG high ranking officials and high level diplomats are also invited to look the occasion. Thirty one cannon's fire salutations are offered to their Majesties as a Royal Honor. His Majesty the King confers the Royal decorations and orders on this day to the persons who have done the commendable contribution for the improvement of the nation. The names of the recipients' are already have been broadcast on media previously on His Majesty the King's birthday; and they come to receive these orders on this day there. After giving the audience there Their Majesties go to Hanumandhoka palace to observe the Fulpati worship. But the autocratic King's all the powers have been seized by the people in the grand peoples' move held since Chaitra 14 to 2068 and where many people had received their martyrdom in this public move for the nation and have brought the sovereignty of the country on the peoples' hand from a single man's autocratic regime.


Dashain Festival ToursThis is the ninth day of the festival; and all the arms and weapons are worshipped on this day collecting at the altar of the goddess. Many he-goats and hebuffalos are sacrificed and the blood is offered on the idol of the Goddess Durga to appease her. People go with roosters, goats, pigeons and buffalos to sacrifice in the name of Goddess and consume it as a prasad. Many people herd to worshipping at the strengthening point of the goddess mother and the traditional Panchai Baja is played there; because of this the place turns in to a spectacular fair. On this day's night people make selroti; the rice's round Nepali bread cooked in the boiled oil; then this selroti is served to the Tika receivers on the next day.

Vijaya Dashami or Badadashain

This is the tenth day and the greatest day of the festival. The Tika receiving exact auspicious time has been broadcast on the radio, which is calculated by the knowledgeable priest. The facing movement also to receive the Tika is calculated by the purohits; and the receivers turn towards the same direction in the Tika receiving time. People go to their respected elders house to house to receive the blessing. After the Tika they enjoy the day long eating the sumptuous foods. People exchange among each other the Vijaya greetings during the whole 15 days' festival period. The Tika receiving procedure lasts for another four days till the shortly coming full moon and ends on this day. The Jamara and the left Tikas are all thrown in the river or at some pious place at the end. This festival is believed to be in practice since the silver age itself; on the happy occasion of slaughtering the cruel Demon by Lord Ram; by the grace of Goddess Bhagawati to relieve all the virtuous persons of this earth.

Navratri begins

The auspicious nine-day 'Nawaratri' or 'Navratri' festival dedicated to the nine manifestations of Goddess Durga has begun from today.

Since early morning, devotees flocked to temples to offer prayers to Shailputri (Daughter of the Mountain) and Navdurga. Goddess Shailputri is the first among the nine forms of Devi Durga. Goddess Durga is worshipped under nine different names for the nine days of Navaratri. According to holy book of Hindus, Every day she assumes a new character. The Goddess is worshipped as Shailputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skanda Mata, Katyayani, Kalratri, Maha Gauri and Siddhidatri, altogether nine names in nine days.
During these nine days, temples are packed with devotees from  early  morning and all day long.
The festival is celebrated with immense zeal and enthusiasm all over the Nepal and India.

The word ‘Navratri’ or ‘Nawaratri’ literally means ‘nine nights’. The nine-day festival symbolizes the triumph of good over evil. This festival is observed twice a year, once in the beginning of summer (Ramnawami or Chaite Dashain) and again at the onset of winter(Navratri or badaadashain).
This year, the ‘Navratri’ festival will be celebrated from September 25 to October 3,(Aswin 9 to Aswin 17, 2071 BS). The festival falls in lunar month Ashwin during Sharad Ritu. ‘Ashwin’ is the Sixth month of the lunisolar Hindu calendar, called Bikram Sambat.

After the nine days of ‘Navratri’ another day is ‘Dashami’ or Badadashain, that they is the day of Tika and wishes.

Farwest Nepal- History and Present

This article is by Ankit Awasthi 
The Far-western Development Region is one of Nepal's 5 development Regions. It is located at western end of the country with headquarters at Dipayal (Doti district).Far-western Region covers 19,539 km2. It is smallest development region in Nepal. It has 9 districts and 2 zones. 
The Far-western Region of Nepal is sometimes called the Doti region, which some believe originated from 'Dovati' meaning land between two rivers, others believe it originated from the HIndu god Dev and aatavi, meaning the place of re-creation. The area's history goes back to the 13th century when Niranjan Malldev founded the Doti kingdom following the fall of the katyuri kings. Dotiyali and kumauni is spoken in the far-western region. Deuda, Jhoda, Chhgeli, Chhaliya, Bhada etc are traditional dance of the region and Gaura is the biggest festival of the region. 
Doti was an ancient kingdom of far-western region of Nepal and Uttarakhand state of India,which was formed after disintegration of katyuri kingdom of Uttarakhand and far-western region of Nepal during 13th century. Doti was one of eight different princely states formed after the kingdom broken and others were- 1.Bajnath, 2.Dwarahat, 3.Doti, 4.Baramandal, 5.Askot, 6.Sira, 7.Sora, 8. Sui(kalikumon),kingdom has broken because of the invasion of khas kings Ashoka challa and krachalla from karnali zone(Dullu) of Nepal in 1191 and 1223 respectively. Later on, thr whole land between Ramganga on the west(Uttarakhand) and the Karnali on the east(which divides far-western region to other part Nepal) came under Raikas after the origin of Raikas of katyuris in Doti,"Brahma Dev Mandi" at kanchanpur District of Mahakali zone was established by katyuri king Brahma Dev. 

RAIKAS of DOTI: Niranjan Malla Dev was the founder of Doti kingdom around 13th century after a fall of katyuris kingdom. He was the son of last katyuris of united katyuris kingdom,kings of Doti were known as Raikas. Later on Raikas after overthrow khas Malla of karnali zone,were able to form a strong Raikas kingdom in far-western region and kumaun which was called Doti. So far the historical evidence of following Raikas have been discovered;The Historic place of war between Doti kingdom and Nepal(Gorkha kingdom) during period of Gorkha expansion at 1790,according to the history of Nepal,is NARI-DANG which is at the bank of seti river and Dumrakot was the base of Doti kingdom for fighting against Gorkhali.

A lion never eats grass: Dr KI Singh

"I am K.I. Singh, so I am not a grass eater. A lion never eats grass." (In 1979)
First known Dr of Nepal
Dr KI Singh

Kunwar Indrajeet Singh (1906 – 4 October 1982 AD/ 1963 Baisakh 13- 2039 Asoj 29 BS) was Prime Minister of Nepal for four months in 1957. He was known as the 'Robin Hood of the Himalayas' after initiating an extensive land redistribution scheme in the early 1950s. He was a member of the Nepali Congress. In 1981, he joined the breakaway Nepali Congress (Subarna).
He is also the first known Doctor of Nepal known as Dr K.I. Singh. He also played important role for revolution against autocratic rana rule of Nepal.His full name is Dr. Kunwar Indrajeet Singh, but is popularly known as Dr. K.I. Singh. He worked in India, and Burma (Myanmar) in the Japanese occupied areas during 1932-34. In 1946, he joined the Nepali National Congress Party and actively participated in the 1950-51 revolution against the Ranas to establish democracy in Nepal. Because of his strong opposition to the 1950 agreement, he was arrested and jailed for 6 months. He escaped and fled to China but returned later after Amnesty by King Mahendra. He also served as the Prime Minister for four months in 1957. He was jailed for 17 months because of his involvement in Satyagraha but was released subsequently after the order of Supreme Court in 1965. He was also appointed as a member of the Rastriya Panchayat for two terms. 
Dr. Singh, not too many Nepalis have forgotten, was a fierce critic of the "Delhi Compromise". Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru forced on Nepal as part of independent India's version of the Monroe Doctrine. Indian troops entered Nepal to suppress Dr. Singh's rebellion. He was brought to Kathmandu and jailed. Following a revolt by his armed supporters in 1952, Dr. Singh fled to China. He returned to Nepal and became premier five years later, Dr. Singh had been urging Nepalis to be more grateful for the economic assistance their "greatest friends" to the south had been providing.
King Mahendra invited Dr.K.I. Singh, the leader of the United Democratic Party, to form the Government.
Dr. Singh could not get support from other political parties, so he formed a Cabinet of the United Democratic Party on 26th July 1957 (11th of Shrawan 2014 B.S.). Other ministers of Dr. Singh's Cabinet were Purendra Bikram Shah, Parshuram Mathema, C.B. Singh, Dambar Bahadur Singh, Ramadhin Mahato, Jivaraj Sharma, Kul Bahadur Limbu, Bhupal Man Singh, Padma Narasingh Rana and Laxmi Prasada Devkota.
Politicians were scared of Dr. Singh because common man had full faith in his words.Dr. Singh attempted to get independent control, but later he quit ruling after 110 days as Prime Minister. Thus Dr. Kunwar Indrajit Singh became the Prime Minister for the shortest period in the democratic period of the History of Nepal. 
A leader who refused Mercedes Benz (those days) as a gift from Russian Embassador saying "I am a poor mans leader, how can i travel in such an expensive car". He was an undaunting, honest and fearless son of Mother Nepal. In 1982, he died due to throat cancer at the age of 76.
