Project: Deusi Bhailo for a cause
Theme: Promoting our tradition
Deusi and Bhailo are traditional songs that are sung during the festival of Tihar in Nepal. After finishing the Laxmi puja in every household, children and teenagers gather together and sing this song along with traditional dance, and they go to various houses in the community. They collect money, sweets, sel rotis and other special delicacies prepared during the festival. It is believed that singing the song brings the blessing of prosperity to the houses. Generally, Bhailo is sung by girls, while Deusi is sung by boys.
The main objective of the event was to collect the fund for mensturation health management and reusable sanitary pad trainings in schools for school girls. Preservation of our culture and tradition has always been a important part of playing deusi & bhailo on tihar’s occasion.
We gathered at our school first and then we headed towards Panauti Layaku Durbar. Team of Interact Club of Siddhartha Vanasthali Institute was led by Rotaract Interact Coordinator Rtr. Jaya Magarati. With the proper coordination and collaboration of Rotaract Club of Panauti and Interact Club of Siddhartha Vanasthali Institute, the event was very awesome. It was a whole package of fun and learning. Many tourists as well as local people were enjoying our deusi bhailo program at Layaku Durbar.
The fund collected would be used for the menstruation project (the signature project of IC SVI) in collaboration with RAC Panauti.
