Tihar (also known as Deepawali and Yamapanchak) is a five-day Hindu festival of Diwali celebrated in Nepal. Nepal’s various communities celebrate Tihar in different ways. The festival is popularly known as Swanti among the Newars and as Deepawali among Madhesis.  Nepalis also make patterns on the floors of living rooms or courtyards using materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand or flower petals, called Rangoli, as a sacred welcoming for the gods and goddesses, particularly Lakshmi.

Bhailo and Deusi, collectively known as Deusi/Bhailo, are Nepalese traditional folk songs sung during the Tihar festival in Nepal as well as in Darjeeling hills, Sikkim, Assam, and some other parts of India among the Gorkhali diaspora. Children as well as adults perform Deusi/Bhailo by singing songs and dancing as they go to various homes in their community, collecting money, sweets and food and giving blessings for prosperity.

This year we celebrated Deusi Bhailo with our Pathasala Kids and parents; however, it was open to all the community members. Children and participants enjoyed the Deusi/Bhailo vibe
