Home for a month

December 2016

When you are abroad living away from family, you realize the importance of your loved ones.  When you are so stressed at times with school and work, you miss the chill-ax life you had back home. When you do not have time to cook, you miss mom’s handmade spicy chicken. The best moments are always found when friends and family gather around.

I went to Nepal over the winter break after almost three years staying in United States.
When I realized that I had only one month to spend in Nepal I had to rush, rush to make this trip worth as much as possible. I wanted travel, eat all the food that I was craving for, spend time with friends and family but the time period was very limited. I used to wake up everyday with a motive on how will I make this day productive.

Reading all this is boring so here are some pictures expressing my stay in Nepal.

International Club and Namaste Nepal jointly organized world’s most colorful festival on Truman.
Holi was organized on April 2nd, 2017 in Red Barn Park.

Holi is one of the largest festivals celebrated by Hindus to represent good overcoming evil. It is best known around the world for the powder that revellers throw on each other, leaving festival goers coated in colour by the end of the day.

Himalayan Night 2017

Namaste Nepal organized 13th annual Himalayan Night on March 4th, 2017. The program comprised of cultural dance, songs and traditional Nepalese cuisine. The theme of this Himalayan Night was “Back On Top Of The World”, trying to depict that Nepal is recovering from the devastating earthquake of 2015 and sharing the news that Nepal is total safe to travel and naturally once is not enough.

Overall, the event was a huge success.
