28/100 – New Year, New Saree and (grateful) that it’s same old but always new, dependable family. The husband who has been making me laugh for years, decided to dress up and strike a pose with my ‘hipster’ saree.

After the quake, new year this year makes me feel grateful that we survived and came this far to mark another new year. This tihar is far from festive but we still have so much to be grateful for. ‪

Newar community in Nepal celebrate their new year a day after Deewali with a ‘mha’ puja (worshipping self).
