A day after the marriage and Suhagrat in a resort in Dhulikhel, Rajesh Hamal and his newly married wife, Madhu Bhattarai went to their ancestral home at Nawalparasi. The couple took a Buddha Air flight from Kathamndu to Chitwan and drove to their home in their car. In Nepali culture, a newly married wife enters the house after performing certain ritual. Rajesh performed such rituals at his home before taking his wife inside. A priest, Bishownath Gyawali performed the rituals before Madhu entered Rajesh’s ancestral home.
Rajesh told that he wanted Madhu to first enter his home in Nawalparasi before they start to live in their home in Kathmandu. In Kathmandu Hamal lives in a house in Kapurdhara, Kathmandu. There were no decorations or any signs of marriage in his Kathmandu residence.
