This post was originally written and posted on Oct 31, 2008. I am making an update on the post by adding details how Nepali celebrities celebrate the festival. I have also added a video introduction of the festival. I have included the details of the celebration of three US-return artists of Nepali movie industry:
Actress Jal Shah is in Nepal for Dashain and Tihar this year with her 8-years-old daughter Kalas. She is planning to cook ‘sel’ the sweet bread popular during tihar. Last year, Jal had offered tika to actor Dilip Rayamajhi.
Actor Ramesh Upreti is not celebrating this year because of the death of his grandfather. Although there wonâ€™t be Tika and wonâ€™t be much fun at home, he will meet and celebrate with his friends.
Ashishma Nakarmi doesnâ€™t have brothers. So, she hasnâ€™t celebrated bhai-tika yet. She enjoys the festival with her friends and family.
