Sushma Koirala is excited that Deepavali is just around the corner. She knows the Festival of Light as Tihar, for that’s what it’s known as in Nepal.
“Tihar is one of Nepal’s main festivals. It is celebrated over five days with rituals and rites. It is a must to have lots of food, houses decorated with lights and merry-making, ” says Sushma, 38, who moved to Malaysia in 2002, after marrying Nepalese Ramesh Bahadur, 49, who lives in Rawang, Selangor.
