  1. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!

  2. Good to know about Dashain festivities in Dalkebar. Thank you for sharing.

    Lines created by these ‘kalas’ in the photo are balance well horizontally for a good composition yet Bhanu could improve it by putting emphasis on the spot where these process of shifting ‘kalash’ to he temple roof was taking place. These religious activities are no doubt the best opportunity for great cultural portraits of people.
