She often comes up with smart things to say. For instance, her take on this Dashain is “I don’t know if it is Dashain or Easter?” If you got it at one read then well, think you are smart. If not here’s the explanation. There’s no Dashain for us this year, some one passed away. I have never really enjoyed going to knock the door of all my relatives in Dashain, actually hated doing that. (Both of us). But this having no option “not to go” anywhere is really killing me. Yesterday was “Tika”. It was just another day at home for us. I’ve always liked putting Tika and getting the blessings that follows. I mean, its a culture I cherish, the Tika and Jamara..a rich culture with so many stories behind it from Lord Rama to Mahisasur.And it feels real good that the festival is actually celebrating the “Strength of a Woman”. The Power of Goddesses, It makes me feel powerful too!
