Description: A group of Newar girls taking rest after performing cultural dance at cultural program which was organized by Jyapu Mahaghuthi, Kathmandu Metro Committee, following the Jyapu (Day 20 December 2008).

Native dwellers of Kathmandu Valley are Newars. Newars who are living in the various parts of Kathamandu valley not only speak different dialects of Newari, but also wear different types of clothing. The Jyapu community wears a distinct saree popularly known as Haku Patashi (see picture), which is a plain black saree with a red border. They wear a full sleeved blouse which is tied at four different corners and is called ‘Thana tagu kapoya lan’. Above it, they wear a shawl call Haku gacha in Newari.

  1. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossip and net stuff and this is really annoying. A good website with exciting content, this is what I need. Thank you for making this site, and I will be visiting again. Do you do newsletters by email?

  2. Hey there. I found your blog by the use of Google even as searching for a comparable topic, your site came up. It appears good. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks to visit then.

  4. All,

    N wats abt giving out small coments. Its will ease to read out the viewers. Its so hectic on reading LOOOOOOOONG & superfluous comments. Do U ppl AGREE wit me or not??????

  5. I agree with Shutterbug. It is a community portal and everyone is free to pass a comment. It would be good if those comments are constructive. Let’s not get bothered with what one is doing. Let’s not waste our time and energy passing non constructive comments and waste time of others as well. EU is growing as a very good portal for sharing ideas and let’s contribute to grow it further for better.

  6. ‘ Agree with sutterbug bais ‘ It would be so nice if I can hire you to know more of my personal matters that even I have no knowledge of. Next time please do comment with your real identity and yes don’t forget to give your phone number so that I punch your number right away.

  7. Interesting!
    Comments here in Rina Maharjan‘s post are getting spicy but I am not sure how it might taste to other viewers who don’t care to cook such a strange dish. But here I would like to share my easy recipe to those ‘Master Chefs’.

    Dear agree with Shutterbug bias
    You are a very good undercover agent and I must congratulate you for this great job done in revealing information on my private life. But let me give you my small suggestion, “Please for sake of your valuable time, stop playing this guessing game and do something productive in Life. Your Mother will be very proud.

    Dear Shutterbug-lai-comment
    Shall I perceive your comment as a proof and realize how desperate people are here in Everest Uncensored to have my rating and comment? Or is it just your immature thought of seeking my comment in everyone’s post here in EU. If EU Admin has no objection on your thought then I should be thankful to you for this opportunity to count myself as an official Commentator of EU and think my comment is obligatory in all pictures post. I guess EU Admin can shed more light on this.

    And for you kind information: please bother yourself for a while to check EU’s comment stats and save yourself from nourishing this wrong fact that Shutterbug don’t comment on pictures posted by GUYS in Photo Blogs and ‘Life in Nepal’ section of EU.

    Dear All,
    Well wishers of EU, Valued Viewers, Photo contributors of LIN, Talented Authors and Good Commentators, let me make this clear that I am simply sharing photography experiences I have being a Photojournalists with budding photographers of EU to help them learn more. I have never claimed myself the ”GURU of PHOTOGRAPY” and dare not to do so because I know I am still learning photography to greater height.

    Besides, I am an ordinary person and do posses this right to comment on pictures posted here in EU on my will. And to be honest, I don’t let go any pictures post here in EU without jotting my comment and share my views. I might have missed commenting on few posts due to my tight schedule and frequent traveling as my profession demands but that didn’t mean I don’t value them.

    Here I remain solid on my purpose for EU and happy to lend my expertise to grow this community wiser and better. Needless to tell Shutterbug is very proud of EU and continue sharing his knowledge of photography to those who believes in sharing and caring.

    Please feel free to disagree my views.

  8. Hi All,
    I see no point arguing more. Let’s be descent enough and think for a while, Experienced photographer don’t need to get appraisal but the one who is learning seek for appreciation ……… So how can we say Shutterbug has been more biased to female than a male here in EU … Abishesh and Heretic are genius in photography themselves and such type of comment don’t really implement on them or be any helpful. So Guys stop twisting things on our own.

  9. Get lost you ‘one of the looser’. Dare not to understimate the ‘Strength of a Women’ of D2Hawkeyes.

  10. If you can do better than show with your work. Don’t come up with idiot comments like yourself.

  11. Rina ko picture is good, but Shutterbug biased kina bhanna mann laagcha bhane there so many other photo blogs…by GUYS (e.g. abishesh, heretic) and there is not a single comment from shutterbug…

  12. Dui chaar wota ramro photo k chich ne bha che aru lai looser re. This is what otherwise called pothi baseko 😆

  13. Dear Shutterbug biased,
    I wonder what makes you think that Shutterbug is biased on his comments. Are you saying so just because I did a comment on picture posted by a lady photographer? What I value most is photographer’s work despite their gender and do comment to appreciate their work and encourage them to learn photography more. I am a photo commentator here in EU and what does it matters to me whether photographer is Rina, Gina, Tina or Mina in particular.

    It would be so nice if you make your accusation specific and help this Shutterbug to realize if you think he is being unfair.

  14. Shutterbug is biased on his comment. 👿
    is this with all girls or with rina only?
    this is not so good picture!!!

  15. Dear “4-S”
    Sangesh, Shutterbug, Samir and Shutterbug ko fan!!
    Thank you for your encouraging comments. I really appreciate it. Comments like yours do inspire people like me who are learning photography keenly and good comments like yours also helps to make this Everest Uncensored a nice e-platform to surf in. I know EU doesn’t lack visitors who are fond of dropping irrelevant and stupid comments and count themselves a superior. Well there is nothing we can do to help those ‘looser’ to be a better person but feels pity.

  16. ramra ramra jyapuni haru ko line lagechha. kanya keti hun ki budhu kanya hun ki kanya janmai sakeka haru hun?

    second and third ones from the left are the pretiest… would go out with them in a sec!
