DHADING, Nov 6: Chhath festival, normally celebrated in the Tarai or plains of the country is gradually becoming an occasion to celebrate in the hills too.
Accordingly, the river banks in the district headquarters today were beautifully decorated for those coming to celebrate Chhath and making offerings to the sun as it sets in the evening.
People originally from the Tarai and living in the hills are leading the celebrations and many locals have joined in.
The festival is also being seen as a mode of promoting goodwill and fraternity between the tarai and hills. The festival will come to an end tomorrow morning, after offerings are made to the rising sun. RSS
