Times have changed, and people’s taste and wants too have changed and though what is inherent to our culture shouldn’t be subject to this change, sadly, it is.

Dashain is already at our doorstep and the festival vibe has taken over the city. Many people have started packing to partake in the festival merriment at their native birthplace. However, the vibe isn’t equally awesome for everyone. Some cannot spend their festival as they wished. The students are most likely to go home with an extra burden of festival assignments.

KATHMANDU, Oct 4: Air borne kites and the intense aerial battles have been the focal leisure activity during Dashain for ages, until recently. As soon as monsoon ended, the vivid color variations of kites used to engulf the blue sky. Legends suggest that kites are indicators to Lord Indra, the rain god, that the fields had water aplenty. Kites are also believed to send ‘thank-you messages’ to the celestial deities for the abundant rain during monsoon.
