Today marks a holiday that not many of us here at CMS were aware of before.
Dashain ( दशैं ), a main festival in Nepal is extremely famous and highly anticipated every year. Very similar to Christmas here in the United States, Dashain is celebrated by Nepalese people throughout the world. The celebration last for 15 days, during which most of everyone is given time off to partake in the festivities.
Our very own Shatabdi Pokharel informed us of what a special occasion this is and was even nice enough to bring in some Nepalese food – Rice and Cauliflower Curry, which was delicious. All of us here at CMS want to thank Shatabdi for taking the time to teach us about this treasured holiday and for bringing in some awesome food! Even though we’re sure you’re a little disappointed to not have off the next 15 days, we’re happy to have you here with us. Happy Dashain to Shatabdi and everyone else that is celebrating!
