Sixteen strangers, each with their own stories came together for @TracingNepal 2017 where we all went through one journey. This year has been so very different. My team members, you have broken your own walls, you've helped me break down my own wall. The way we have opened up to one another, the way we shed a tear for one another; this was beyond what I imagined. Seeing how close knit you guys became, the sisterhood you created Team Udaan and the strong friendship you created Team Babbal... you left me in awe. Remember, I will always be here for each one of you and I hope you will be there for one another too. We're never alone if we share and we now have bucket load of memories. Till the next journey! Stay strong, #TracingNepal2017#TracingNepal#Travel#Learn#Explore#Experience#Nepal#KasaraResort

Happy Dashain to all my friends and family.. Today the first day of Dashain ; biggest festival of the year in Nepal.
Dashain is celebrated as for the great victory of the gods over the wicked demons. One of the victory stories told is the Ramayan, where the lord Ram after a big struggle slaughtered Ravana, the fiendish king of demons.
Dashain is celebrated by Nepalese of all caste and creed through out the country. The first day of Dashain is called Ghatasthapana, which literally means pot establishing.
On this day the kalash, (holy water vessel) symbolising goddess Durga often with her image embossed on the side is placed in the prayer room. The kalash is filled with holy water and covered with cow-dung on to which seeds are sown. A small rectangular sand block is made and the kalash is put in the centre. The surrounding bed of sand is also seeded with grains.
The ghatasthapana ritual is performed at a certain auspicious moment determined by the astrologers. At that particular moment the priest intones a welcome, requesting goddess Durga to bless the vessel with her presence.
