‘Dasai’ could not be celebrated last year. Didn’t have much fun,’ Pramod told online news- ‘This time I am in a mood to celebrate Dashain in a good way with my family.’ He said that he had turned down an offer from outside the country to celebrate Dashain with his family this year.

The decade he enjoys is from childhood. He said, “The decade of Sanobella seems unforgettable. In Dashain Lingye used to play ping pong, Dashain used to go to the market to buy clothes. Ping is no longer visible. My mother-in-law is from Assam. It was fun going to Mama’s house by train. Assam has a different atmosphere than Nepal, they celebrate Dashain with more fanfare than here. The fun of celebrating a holiday at Mama’s house in Dashain was something else.
Pramod narrated another story of Dashain in his childhood. Now it is being seen day and night on the Internet that there is no curiosity.
Pramod said that many childhood memories including buying Khasi, going to the forest and covered with red clay, or bringing lime, distributing jute for Lingye Ping, beating Chiura in Dhiki are now missing. “I miss the joy of celebrating Dashain at a young age,” he said.
