Carnival time

KATHMANDU: The season’s just right for picnics in the sun, a day out with your loved ones. Wouldn’t want to miss out a few hours — if not more — under the warm early winter sun, no? And what better way to spend such a day than one that has been christened ‘Tewa Carnival’.

Yes, folks mark your calendar — the second Tewa Carnival is being held on November 11 at the Birendra International Convention Centre (BICC).

Tewa, which in Nepali means support, is an organisation that was established in 1996. It aims to strengthen communities to bring Nepali men and women into equitable partnership in development of the country and assist in empowering emerging groups of rural women.

Games stalls, rides, food stalls, craft stalls, face painting, mehndi... you name it and you’ll find it here. The food stalls will be catered by 15 of the Capital’s best restaurants. Apart from these fun stalls, there will be stalls that will be manned by various NGOs.

Apart from these, there will be performances by popular singers and artistes. The carnival is a fund raiser that is aimed at empowering women and for their uplift and kicks off at 10:00 am.

(Tickets: Rs 100 each; Rs 50 for kids below 12 years of age and for students) — HNS

Eve with Raju Lama

KATHMANDU: He’s got the cute looks and has managed to capture hearts of many. Now’s your chance to listen to his groove live.

Raju Lama will be performing at the Maroon Lounge, Thamel on November 10 from 7:30 pm.

As concerts mean huge crowds, this event say the organisers, is a chance for all of Lama’s fans to enjoy his music in an intimate atmosphere.

Tickets are priced at Rs 500. However, taking a cutout of the event’s ad printed in The Himalayan Times ensures one of a heavy discount.

Raju Lama’s performance will be followed by a DJ session late into the night.
