Today is first day of New Year as per Indian calendar, and Hindus celebrate it by erecting auspicious flags on their houses on top of bamboo sticks, which is called as Gudhi. We celebrated the festival here in Kathmandu in traditional way. After the pooja team members exchanged warm hugs and wished good luck for the coming year.
