Thursday is staff meeting day.
Today’s staff meeting has just finished. Due to Love & Happiness the meeting was much longer than usual. It’s Raksha Bandham and Urmilla has gotten married.
Raksha Bandhan is an ancient Hindu festival that ritually celebrates the love and duty between brothers and their sisters.
Sisters ties threads on brothers arms, as a way of showing that they want them to stay well.
To us Westerners the concept of ‘Famiily’ is very different compared the Nepalese tradition. You have blood brothers and sisters, you have best friends brothers and sisters, you have cousin brothers and sisters.etc…
One of the biggest gifts we have received from Nepal are all the new family members we have got.
We love each and every one of our sons and daughters…
