Outdoor Social Gathering of D2 Nepal

Date:Saturday, July 21, 2007
Venue: Tribhuwan Park, Thankot
Report: Shreeya, AnupS, SmritiS, RiteshK and AashishK

On Saturday, July 21, 2007, D2HS went company picnic. The venue was Tirbhuwan Park and more than a hundred of D2ians and their family and friends enjoyed the day in various ways. Please find below some personal experiences:

Shreeya Shakya:

All the D2ians gathered for a social gathering, which turned out to be fantastic and fun filled day. With the perfect weather, no rain and no sunshine with occasional drizzle, all the gathered D2ians enjoyed the ambience to the fullest, some gambling, some breaking their backs dancing to the hip music and some taking the role of enthusiastic on-lookers.

The day started early at least for PrakashM, SmritiP and myself as we were one of the first ones to reach the venue before the clock had hit 9 in the morning. We strolled around the park for an hour or so and were soon joined by fellow colleagues with food and drinks for our hungry and thirsty souls. After having quick breakfast and a tour of the park, few settled down to play cards exhibiting their gambling panache, while others settled to loosen up their tight muscles on the dance floor. A little intoxication for few and a ‘lot’ for most, the dance floor was surely on fire with head bangs, swings and sways and even to salsa.

The gamblers gambled the whole day with countless wins and losses. And the dancers danced the day away. Everyone found something or the other to do and took full advantage of the day and returned home with something to share with family and friends.

Anup Sharma:

There was lot of excitement in the air as everybody was planning to spend a Saturday just the right way. So was it. With more than 100 people in the spot, the picnic began with a bang. After having the breakfast (puri, tarkari, jeri etc), everybody got geared up to celebrate the picnic party the way it is meant to be.

Some started playing cards, some went to roam around while some started playing badminton and the lucky ones with cameras started capturing every ups and downs of the picnic. The mood was beginning and everybody was enjoying either playing cards or talking or snapping or walking. When the music hit the spot, boy, some of the male counterparts hit the dance floor. You could see bodies humming with the sounds of serenades from those large loudspeakers. By then everything was ready: music, beer, wine, cold drinks and yes-good old MASU.

The activities continued till the evening (around 5pm). After that everybody started to move towards their homes thinking about how good the day was? Just then, somebody from the crowd said:
Such event should be held regularly
After all, we need to socialize.

Smriti Shrestha:

To start with, the concept of a picnic was not something very appealing. Even till 8AM in the morning, I was in a quandary about whether to be part of picnic or not. But now as I look back at the day, it was worth experiencing.

As I retrospect the picnic, the only thing that comes in my head is dance, dance and dance. It had been a long break to D2 parties and what could make us dance our hearts out more than open space, DJs, music and friends!

Ritesh Khanal:

Rainy season, leeches, and picnic? Didn’t know dancing can hurt your legs more than a whole day of hiking.

A day out as such once in a while, and you can go on for a few months without complaining the pressure.

Aashish Koirala:

I got to the picnic spot early. That’s why my “fun” started early. I do sort-of remember when I left the picnic. I then went roaming around Swayambhu for a while. Besides that, I am quite hazy on what exactly went on (but that’s a good thing– and in my case, a regular thing). All I have to summarize the picnic, therefore, are some “excerpts”, if you will:

“Fanta plus vodka is penchis!!”
“Tyo bottle kasto idle basirachha…”
“Mayale !@#$ !$#@@!!”
“Oh! Aah!! Maile bolaaune!! Maile bolaaune!!”
“Helloooo….. hellooooo…”
“Aiya khuttaa madkiyo!”
“I love you Laaanaaaa!!!”
