In Nepal, pregnant women are fed beaten rice and yogurt (Dahi Chiura) to wish for the health of the mother and the unborn child. Three of the Nepali actresses, Rekha Thapa, Rejina Upreti, and Richa Ghimire gathered in an event organized at Arunima Lamsal‘s home in Kapan Kathmandu. They also invited another pregnant actress Sanchita Luitel in the ceremony.
What makes this event special is that, these five actresses, who are considered to be rivals in Nepali movie industry, have tried to prove everybody wrong by gathering in a place to celebrate the happiness of two of their colleagues.
A book of haiku poems, measuring three inch in length and 2.5 inch in width (3"x2.5") is probably the smallest book ever published in Nepal. The book named ‘Dahi Chiure’ is written by Iran Rai ‘Sweak’ and is of 67 pages long. The price of the book is set to be Rs. 10.
