ANQ Dashain Celebration 2075

Montreal, October 20, 2018

A huge number of Nepali community members, families and Canadian well-wishers from Montreal and surroundings joined together to celebrate Bada Dashain 2075 on 20th October 2018 at the Eagle Party Palace. Dashain is the most auspicious and longest festival in Nepali culture and tradition, celebrated in most of the families throughout the country and foreign lands.

The evening started with National anthem followed by welcome speech and Tika/Jamara offered by ANQ Advisor Pabitra Upadhaya hosted by ANQ Secretary Rishi Shrestha. ANQ honoured Advisor Deepak Kumar Shrestha and his family for their contribution and volunteer service to the community. The grand party successfully ended with an entertaining cultural program hosted by ANQ Executive Members Sitaram Dhakal and Nirmala Kunwor. This time we had a Nepali celebrity with us along with talented local dancers and singers. The famous Nepali folk singer / dancer Priti Ale Magar came all the way from Nepal to entertain Nepalese community in Canada with her songs and dances.

ANQ Advisors Dr. Hemanta Paudel, Pabitra Upadhaya and Honorary Consul of Nepal to Quebec Bernard Voyer extended their best wishes. ANQ President Yubaraj Bhandari welcomed all the participants and newcomers, wished a very happy Dashain and thanked all for their continued support to ANQ. He also requested community members to get involved in ANQ activities and be a part of the ANQ family.

The highlight of the celebration party was the Nepali cultural program. The program commenced with spectacular performances of talented community artists and continued by entertaining performance of Priti Ale. Our artists Anila Simkhada (dance), Muskarin Khanal (dance), Pratistha Sainju (dance), Purshottam Bhusal (poem), Salyan Bhattarai (songs), Sanskriti Gautam (song), Saurav Gautam (song), Sudha Binod (dance) and Yubaraj Bhandari (song) performed/presented their dances, songs and poems. Our community artists Yubaraj Bhandari (vocals) and team (Salyan Bhattarai - vocals, Saroj Ghimire - madal and Nawaraj Gautam - madal) sang lok dohori with Priti Ale.

Special thanks to Geeta Baral, Mala Budha Magar, Nirmala Kunwor, Salyan Bhattrai and Sitaram Dhakal (cultural program coordination), Prajwal Sainju, Geeta Baral and Mala Budha Magar (registration), Deep Nandan Achhami and Jebin Lamichhane (bar), Anuj Khanal (music), Vivekanand Dwivedy (food & beverage) and Bikram Paudel and Gaurav Khatiwada (sound system support) who put their entire energy to make the event a great success.
