How Kids are Bigger than Adults

Because they play Deusi-Vailo in Tihar, assemble ‘Pings’ (i.e. swings) during major festivals Dashain and Tihar etc. which adults don’t.

They’ve been keeping the very characters of our festivals alive which adults have been failing to do. Adults rather prefer holing up somewhere spending all day either boozing, playing cards, wagering, sitting in front of the boob tube or simply bumming around. Widespread apathy towards the long-practiced traditions among these folks is letting many of cultural and authentic characters of our festivals die away.

But, kids are the savior! They’ve been keeping the staple characters of our festivals going even in the midst of fading traditional values.

Let’s give these dinky little guys a slap on the back.
