I am the greatest fan of Haku Patasi in the whole of Kathmandu. I went berserk when I saw hundreds and hundreds of cute young things (and cute old things, too) parade through Janabahaa in brilliant red, black and white on Bala Charey last year. Some were showing off their slick cell phones, while others willingly posed for the camera, flashing their red roses of love on neatly pleated fishtail hairdo. Bala Charey this year falls on November 19 – come and enjoy the sights and sounds at Janabahaa, and share a little bit of the madness with me. Photos by Alok Tuladhar.
