Nhu Dan Nepal Samvat 1141 Seminar

Pasa Puchah Guthi UK is organising an online global seminar on Sunday 29th November 2020 to mark the Nhu Dan Nepal Samvat 1141 and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its establishment.

With a theme of “Contemporary Practices in the Preservation and Promotion of Newa Traditions”, the conference aims at exploring contemporary ways in which Newa culture experts and activists are involved in the preservation and promotion of Newa culture and traditions. The seminar will also shed light on the challenges and issues Newa community has been facing historically, and their potential solutions.

Pasa Puchah Guthi UK recognises that with the development and accessibility of technology, many of the historical challenges in preservation and promotion of Newa tradition and culture have been overcome by innovative and contemporary practices. The objective of this seminar is not just to celebrate the success of such practices but also to create a forum to discuss various other issues that might require broader participation from the Nepalese diasporas worldwide.

A number of Newa culture experts and enthusiasts globally will be presenting their experience and research on the efforts to preserve Newa culture and traditions.

The event will be delivered as the next seminar in Guthi Seminar Series hosted by Pasa Puchah Guthi UK, London since 2011. Expected to be participated by a number of Newa organisations around the world, the event will be broadcasted live on PPGUK’s official social media platforms.

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.
