Since the earthquake, every Nepali tried to forget the pain we got from that natural disaster and celebrate every festival with same energy with friends and family. This year every one tried to welcome the new year with new hope and big dreams. Every one participated in the festival to welcome the new year. Here are some picture from the sindoore jatra or Bisket jatra from Thimi .
A unique way of celebrating new year, which starts 4 days before the Nepali New year. Its a festival where there is rivalry between people participating to pull the chariot upward or downward the Taumadi square at Bhaktapur.
Lele is a small village located south of Kathmandu valley in Nepal. We went there to capture some landscape and portraits and daily life of the villagers. People there are very friendly. The kids we met were amazing. You can also see them singing our national anthem below.

Lele is a small village south to Kathmandu valley. Many years ago during the Maoist insurgency I had gone there with my friends, but since Maoist activities were at high at that time, we were not able to explore the place.
After many years, I planned to go there for some photography with my friends. From the Lele bus park, we headed towards south and climbed a small hill where there was a small settlement of roughly 12 to 15 house.
Macro photography always attracted me. Since I didn’t had a macro lens, I am not able to explore this section of photography. A year ago I had chance to use one of my friends macro lens in botanical garden at Godawari. It was fun to use it for the first time.
This time I saw some flowers blooming in my garden, so once again i borrowed his lens to try some macro shot of some flower. Here are some picture i took.
Chariot of Kumari, Lakhe and Pulukisi
Nepal is still in pain as it tries to heal the wounds after the devastating earthquake. Amidst the aftershocks, there are old houses which are standing with support in the aisle of Kathmandu. Indra Jatra is a festival which is celebrated by pulling the chariot of lord Ganesh, Bhairav and Kumari in these aisle.
