Panchami Shradhha/Rashtriya Bal Diwas

With the commencement of the Sorha Saddha may all the godlike Pitri in the Pitri realm between heaven and earth obtain salvation, may all the Pitri cross the Baitarni River, and may the ancestral love be maintained.

May the blessings of the ancestors be maintained, May goodness and good wishes are maintained, and we are the remnants of the ancestors in today's form, aren't we?

Tarpan, Diyo Puja, Vishwedeva Brahman, and other pujas can be performed before the appointed time. There is a belief that if the Pinda is not donated at this time, the Pitris will not get it. Sanatana Philosophy largely acknowledges the importance of Pitri in the existence of life and the universe.

In Vedic Sanatan Sanskrit, Pitrikarma i.e. shraddha is usually performed twice, regular shraddha is performed on the tithi of death and another shraddha is performed during the period of Sorha shraddhas. May peace and happiness prevail in every family with the commencement of this year's Sorha Shraddha Wishing for the salvation of the Pitri who passed away on the Panchami Shraddha.

Rashtriya Bal Diwas

Historical Background:
Ratnarajya Laxmidevi Shah, during her visit to India, saw that Children's Day was celebrated in India on the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, and came back to celebrate a special national day for children at the state level in Nepal as well. Inspired by this intention, National Children's Day was started on Bhadra 4, her birthday. In B.S 2021, National Children's Day was celebrated for the first time in Nepal.

Children's Day on the 29th of Bhadra
Gradually, along with the change in the governance system in Nepal, the date of celebrating Children's Day also changed. Nepal has been celebrating National Children's Day every year on Bhadra 29, on the occasion of the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989 on 14 September 1990.

What are child rights?
Children's rights are a combination of children's rights to live, develop, get protection, express their opinions, have the right to make policy decisions about themselves and participate in social activities in a meaningful way.

Convention on the Rights of the Child:
The Convention on the Rights of the Child is a common agreement among states on the rights of children, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on November 20, 1989. Child rights are not limited to ideals and declarations, but this convention has been interpreted to give it a practical form of child development. Nepal has approved it on September 14, 1990. Along with today's changing times, children's rights have been included in the basic law of the country.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
