On Tuesday, January 6, 2009, Thakur Dai invited his colleagues for a cocktail dinner at the Delicatessen Center, Kantipath. He is leaving D2 Nepal Office and joining the D2 Boston Office. The lavish party that he threw was a blast:
- The karaoke songs were comforting. It was great to listen to old Nepali and Hindi numbers.
- The food was appetizing and the drinks were soothing. The bar was literally open.
- The dances were ecstatic: mixture of folk, ballroom, hip hop and ‘drunk-trot’.
Thakur Dai dedicated the song “chalte, chalte, mere ye geet, yaad rakhanaa; kabhi albidaa naa kehnaa, kabhi albidaa naa kehnaa”. His song, and his contributions to D2 Nepal, will be remembered.
Thanks to Vishnu Dai for his coordination – his ‘khelaa’.
All attendees thoroughly enjoyed the evening and Thakur Dai is sure to be missed very much in Nepal. Our warm wishes are with him.
