Minting money

Dashain is the most exhilarating festival for me as we (children) get plenty of money.

I celebrate my Dashain by rolling the dice playing langurburja, and nobody can even guess how much money I earn by playing this game. I also don’t fail to benefit from playing cards. I earn almost half of the money of what I get during Dashain by playing these two wonderful games.

Every forehead is red with tika and the heads are decorated green with jamara.

All plane and bus tickets are booked by those whose homes are far away. People buy new clothes and go to dinners with their family. 

Dashain is a great festival and I enjoy it a lot because I earn around Rs 3,000-4,000 then.Isn’t that great?

I really, really love Dashain!
