Happy Nepali New Year 2075 🇳🇵🇳🇵🇳🇵

Today is Nepali New Year 2075. Yes, we are ahead of time 😊.

As I have mentioned before, Nepal follows a different calendar than the Gregorian calendar so Nepali New Year falls on mid-April instead of 1st of January. Bikram Sambat or Nepali Calendar or Nepali patro is approximately 56 years and 8½ months ahead of the Gregorian calendar.

Last night we celebrated the new year eve with few friends eating yummy food and enjoying great company.

We all dressed up in kurta so we had a Nepali vibe . Chhori also loved her Nepali outfit and was happy  throughout the evening.

What can be more Nepali than momo for food with aloo achar .

We also had cake so the kids help us cut it.

We really had great time .

A new beginning…
New hopes…
New horizons to reach for…
May the Sun radiate all the goodness of life…
In the coming year and always!
Happy Nepali New Year 2075 to all!!!

Take care,

For us, in Australia, this year had been great as the New Year Eve fell on Saturday and New Year on Sunday. First of all I can’t believe its year 2070 as the last Nepali year I remember writing would be year 2056 in Nepal.

Anyway, we had a great time with my cousins and brothers BBQing and drinking over the weekend. It was a good way to remember Nepal and enjoy ourselves on New Year’s Eve.

Then yesterday, we went out with our friends for dinner. Have to say it is great to get together and celebrate Nepali New Year even though we are not in Nepal.

A Nice Suprise

As you may already know Nepal follows a different calendar than the Gregorian calendar. For most of the children born in Nepal, a birth chart is made by an astrologer as per the Hindu astrological calendar. This chart is called a “Cheena” or “Janam Patro”. So if you look at it as per the Gregorian calendar it looks as if a child’s birthday falls on a different date every year based on the Cheena. A day as per the astrological calendar is called a Tithi. So a child can have his birthday celebrated on his Tithi birthday or as per the Gregorian calendar or both.

Every year, my mum takes my birth chart to an astrology to get my birthday according to the Tithi. And so every year, I have two birthdays. One according to the Cheena, and the other according to the Gregorian calendar.

 On my Tithi birthday , my mum performs some Puja in Nepal for me and on my Gregorian calendar birthday I usually have some friends over and enjoy the day.

While Skyping last Saturday, she told me this year my Tithi birthday was last Tuesday. I thanked her for the gift she had sent me with my friend and told her how much I loved it.

So Tuesday came as any normal day and I even forgot that it was meant to be my Tithi birthday for this year. We had invited some of my cousins and my brother for dinner(not for the birthday of course) that night so my head was occupied with all the cooking and planning I needed to do for the evening.

I had to go for a training from work in the city that day so I didn’t reach home till 6pm. When I was rushing home to cook, AS called to let me know that he had to stay back at work a little longer (it always seems to happen when we have plans eeeerrrrrrrrrrr). I was annoyed but I knew he would have come early if he could to help me with the preparations.

I went home and quickly started making dinner. While I was cooking, AS came home. When he opened the door, I saw him carrying a stunning bouquet packed with luscious red chocolate hearts. It also had a card with very sweet message. “Light of my light, heart of my heart, you’re my true love under the stars. Happy Birthday Love”. He handed me the chocolate bouquet and wished me happy birthday. I was so touched and felt so special. I wasn’t expecting anything at all as I knew he would get me something on the day of my other birthday.

I guess this is another perk of being married/in relationship. You get unexpected surprises which warms your heart .His gesture brought a big smile to my face and made me feel very loved.

I love you baby. Thank you soooooooooooo much.
