Like previous years, I am sharing the photos of the Nepali celebrities celebrating Bhai Tika. Tihar being the second biggest festival in Nepal, it is celebrated by almost everybody. The festival involves worshiping dog, crow, cow, bull and siblings. I had written about the 5 Days of Tihar festival in a previous post.
The photos of the previous years:
Priyanka Karki’s Bhai Tika and Laxmi Puja celebration:
Rekha Thapa’s Bhai Tika Celebration:
Deepawali and rangoli are usually made by women in the house. So, I haven’t found any male celebrities sharing the such artworks online. I have collected the photos of the Nepali film actresses and some videos to compile the following video. In the background I have used a video clip of the well known comedy poet, Shailendra Simkhada, telling one of his latest poems in the Sisnopani Deusi program held on the Deepawali day in Kathmandu.
Shailendra’s poems are satirical and funny. Sometimes the words in the poem and the photos might seem connected but, that is not true. I have placed the photos of the actresses alphabetically, so if you find any connection between the words in the poem and the photos, it is not intentional.
Watch the video:
In addition to the poem of Shailendra Simkhada and photos of actresses celebrating Laxmi Puja, I have also added a video clip at the end of the video of actress Priyanka Karki dancing with the little Bhailo girls at her home. The song she is dancing is one of the most popular songs of her movie in theatre ‘Chhaka Panja’. The movie had recently celebrated 51-days in theatre. Continue reading

Social network is a crowd of people. If you expect something from them, you are bound to be disappointed. The latest proof of that fact is the recent open letter of Nepali actress Priyanka Karki. Priyanka Karki has expressed her dissatisfaction on the comments she received in her social media pages.
Priyanka wrote, “Whenever I upload new picture, share new music videos or movie songs songs, why do you guys abuse me so much?” She tells, the people react as if she has hurt them or personally offended them. She also told that she feels offended by the the people when they call her whore or prostitute. Full detail of the letter is given in the following video:
Did Priyanka Karki write the letter to create controversy?
I think so. Priyanka is a smart actress, way better than the ones who cry foul in social media! Here are my reasons:
Priyanka knows Social Media
Priyanka is one of the most social-network active actress in Nepali film industry. No other actress in Nepali film industry has explored the social media as Priyanka Karki. She had organized social meet-up in Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. She has extensively discussed with her followers in the past. She knows, people can get away with telling anything in social media because of it’s anonymous.
