The Best Tihar Ever!

That’s what the older boys said… “the best Tihar ever”… but it was bittersweet. That’s because the whole Ama Ghar family, including alumni and older kids who have been away at school, jobs and internships, were together for a wonderful holiday celebration – but then the older ones all had to go back and leave their younger brothers and sisters, aunties and uncles, who will miss them terribly.

The two most memorable events were Mha Puja, the Newari celebration of the self which includes a beautiful feast of fruits and sweets, and Bhai Tika (brother blessing) where all the boys are given tika by their female relatives.
