New Year 2061 BS

April 17, 2004. As usual ANQ celebrated Nepali New Year 2061 BS with a great enthusiasm by Association of Nepalese in Quebec (ANQ). To make our Nepali culture alive a Cultural Program has also been organized and that was the main entertainment of the celebration. Program was started by announcer Surendra Shrestha and President Muga Rajbhandari, Advisor Raj Kumar Mahat and Advisor Pabitra Upadhyaya highlighted the activities of ANQ, importance of program and wished a very happy prosperous new year.

The second phase of the program was Cultural Program. Opening by Cultural Coordinator Hirendra Khatri - Munu, Raksha and Prativa put their all efforts to make the program lively and enjoyable giving a new style and model to lunch the program. Although they were first time in the stage, they have shown their great skills and courage that was really appreciated. At the same time Anju Mahat and Gita Baral were trying to assist TRI DEVI and Member Hemanta Dahal was also trying his best to make the program successful announcing and telling jokes. All most all children were on the stage singing and dancing. It seemed that they were having really fun showing their skills without any hesitation. Usha Mungrati, Munu Kanel, Raksha Mahat, Rukshan Mahat, Princedeep, Hirendra Khatri, Dilasha Thapa had performed dance that looked like really a professional. On the other hand Patrick Baral was trying to convey the New Year message with his little voice and Surendra, Hirendra, Hemanta and Subash (read by Surya) were able to give an impression that they are the great poets telling their poems. Gopal Pokhrel’s song and Hirendra’s SARANGI added more entertainment on program.

Candy distribution and DVD Prize were another attraction of the program. As a whole the program was a really successful. Everybody seemed to be very busy. Sarad Subba has played a vital role to serve drinks and on the other side Shankar Subedi was really busy at the registration. Of course, Vice president Sajir Shrestha was trying to capture all the events moving his tiny video camera and Prakash Mungrati and Gita Baral were pushing people here and there to serve food. At the corner of the hall Bal Mukunda, Shankar and Govinda were busy counting money and empty beer bottles.

To end the party there was group songs and dance. Wow, everybody was on the stage dancing and singing with great fun. At the end, a really good teamwork has been displayed, within less than ten minutes the hall was completely cleaned, all musical instruments and electronics were taken to the car. It was really nice to hear the good night message and once again new year wishes at the departure. Indra Khatri, Home Lamichhane, Gopal Pokhrel and Prakash Mungrati were the hero of decorating the hall and shopping necessary goods for the party. ANQ would like to thank all participants, artists, volunteers and of course Mr. Sing-Bharat Bhawan for providing a Hall and assistance and New Indian Mahal Restaurant for their great food and cooperation.
