The tenth day of Dashain is called ‘Dashami’. On this day we take Tika and Jamara from our elders and receive their blessing. The red Tika also symbolizes the blood that ties the family together. Elders will give “Dakshina”, or a small amount of money, to younger relatives at this time.
This year Tika was on Thursday so after work, I performed Puja at home. Then we went to my cousin K’s place for tika. We had a Nepali bhoj and lots of fun.
Here are some pics from the day.
