The day then concluded with a band display to commemorate the start of the Buddha Subba Gold Cup at Dharan Stadium. On the same occasion the Band also presented NRS 25,000 for the player of the match.
It was incredible to see so many participants of all ages partaking at Dharan Run. It is 20 years since the Gurkha Band has performed in Dharan and the crowds were delirious with joy at the opportunity to see and hear our band once again. The appreciation that Dharaney people expressed to the Band was just amazing.
