KATHMANDU, Oct 18: The resounding Dashain song has already echoed our homely walls as we enter the sixth day of the festival. Dashain much known for a family reunion and longer days off from work is an occasion to rejoice with an age-old culture and rituals sharing roots to our deep-seated values and beliefs. Over the decades, our new trends and practices have quite blended in adding different ways of celebration. However, no matter how much we long to play the Dashain swing or how many kites we flew in the past years, the spirit of celebration has remained intact with nurturing our religious significance of truth's victory over the evil.
