English Meen Sankranti | Hamro Patro

ब्लग - साहित्य / नेपाली चाडपर्व तथा महत्त्वपूर्ण दिनहरू

Meen Sankranti welcomes this spring.

With the dryness and light breezes of March, dried leaves and dust particulars frequently appear and reappear in our courtyard and doorsteps. These movements bring a strange inspiration in our heart, the long winter is now being compensated by the warm waves. Congratulations, we have managed to witness these 11 incredible months of the current year, welcome to this final and 12th month, Chaitra.

The pure Sanskrit translation defines the word "Sanskrit" as a transitional and changing phase of time, Sakranti depicts the changes of months, and the first day of a new month is Sakranti as we all know. Along with these passing months, our dress, seasons and thinking are also changed, Meen Sankranti now demands to store your winter clothes and take back summer clothes.

Sun enters in Meen Rashi from either Kumva or Mesh Rashi, this day has its own religious significance and devotion towards the Sun and its light. Rural Nepal is now all set to organize local fares "Melas", Chaitra is a month of color and brightness. These Melas are organized above the recently cut wheat plants in the fields, Cuckoos are singing the valor of love and rejoice.

Welcome to the spring, king of all seasons. Loads of love, Happy Chaitra.

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.
