1 Squadron, 10 The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment (QOGLR), celebrated the Dashain and Tihar festival in a unique and original manner.
The Kalaratri programme was full of surprises and wonderfully choreographed. Sadly, guest numbers were limited so the event was live streamed on Facebook for wider QOGLR families which was viewed by 10,000 people around the world and the audience were left in awe when surprise Nepalese celebrities’ video messages were played.
Equally, Tihar-Ghar was decorated with lights and beautiful rangoli. The festival day began with the Commander rolling a Tri-pasa dice and this year the Deusi- Bhailo programme provided a nice change from previous years. All the gaming stands were busy, and everywhere people were having good fun. The food stall was organised by the Gurkha Families and a good amount was collected for the QOGLR Ladies’ Fund.
