KATHMANDU:- The Chasuwa festival of Yakha community, Folsyadar of Sunuwar, Udhauli Sakela of Rai and Chasok Tangnam of the Limbu community are being observed today.
The Limbu community celebrated Chasok Tangnam on the first day of the festivals that began three days ago. But today, all jointly celebrate the Udhauli Sakela or Kirant festival. Though various ethnic groups within Kirant community call the festival with different names, it is popularly known as Udhauli, said Kirant scholar Kirti Kumar Dumi Rai.
The day is celebrated to mark the ripening of the food crop, by offering it first to the god, seeking permission to consume it and also remembering the ancestors. On this day, the Kirant followers worship the land and get to dancing and merry making donned in traditional attire.
