Bhai Tika 2015 – Celebrity Celebration, Photo highlights

UPDATE 1 : Photos of Bhai Tika of Rajesh Hamal, Dilip Rayamajhi, Jal Shah, Namrata Shrestha, Nisha Sunar are added.

The second biggest festival in Nepal after Dashain, Tihar has been wrapped up on Friday November 13. The last day of Tihar – Bhai Tika is celebrated by brothers and sisters to show their love and dedication to each other. On the occasion, despite of economic blockade from India, people have followed the tradition. Update

Top 5 Bhai Tika moments:

  • Komal Oli’s petrol presents to her brothers
  • Palpasa Dangol’s – Bhaitika in Teaching Hospital
  • Dilip Rayamajhi and Jal Shah celebrate Bhai Tika after 13 years
  • Rista Basnet got well just in time for Bhai Tika
  • New sisters and brothers

The beauty of Bhai Tika is that people make new brothers and sisters during the festival. For example, Takme Budha (Wilson Bikram Rai) and Ashma DC and Sanyukta Puri, Jal Shah and Bikrant Basnet, Nisha Sunar and Suman Budha Magar, Naresh Bhattarai and Sapana Chamling Rai became new brothers/sisters this year.

Singer, journalist and actress Komal Oli made this year’s Bhai Tika memorable by presenting 2-litres petrol to each of her brothers. At the time of petrol-crisis in Nepal, that would certainly made the happiest brothers.

Comedy actress Palpasa Dangol, popularly known as Chamsuri has urine infection and was rushed to emergency room in Teaching Hospital right before Bhai Tika. As she had to be treated in the hospital, her brothers visited Dangol in hospital bed to take Bhai Tika. Palpasa has told that that was one of the most memorable Bhai Tika in her life.

Actor Dilip Rayamajhi had considered actress Jal Shah his younger sister when they were in a program in Qatar, 13-years ago. After that, they didn’t have an opportunity to celebrate the festival together. Jal has been living in the USA for the last 10 years and Dilip has also moved to the USA this year. That is how they got to celebrate the festival together this year. Both Dilip and Jal had arrived in singer Nisha Sunar‘s residence at New York for the festival. Dilip lives in Baltimore and Jal lives in Utah.

In the occasion, Jal also got another brother – actor Bikrant Basnet.
