I have moved to ashishlohorung.com.np
Though it took much time to move from this domain to new domain ashishlohorung.com.np finally I did it. This is a great leap for me as I have become fan of Wordpress customizable CMS. Though I had a great SEO in this site I have to finally move to the new one.
But I am not leaving this site fully. I will be updating it but only occasionally. Most of my post can be seen at ashishlohorung.com.np

This is celebrated two time in one year. Ubhauli is celebrated during the full moon of April/May to denote the commence of cultivation and farming where as Udhauli festival is celebrated during the full moon of November/December thanking gods for giving nice crops and harvesting. The program was organized by Kirat Ykthung Chumlung and Kirat Rai Yayokkha. It has been organizing the program every twice in a year. Chitra Tumbahangphe became the Silimangpa of Limbu. Chyabrung dance was also performed in the event. Dhol and Jhyamta were also used during dancing. The style of dance movement called sili were different for different ethnicity. Many kind of sili were performed including Chamling, Bantawa, Bahing, Limbu and Lohorung. Many attendees were dressed in cultural style. The women wore Chawbandi cholo and Guneu with patuka.

Sakela, Udhauli and Ubhauli of Kiratis
Today is the Udhauli festival of all Kirati people. It is believed that from this day the winter season starts. So people, birds and animal migrate from cold regions to warmer regions. This kind of migration occurs twice in a year. The celebration of migrating downwards during this season is called "Udhauli (उधौली)" and the celebration of migrating upwards during the season of Baisakh (April or May) is called "Ubhauli (उभौली)".
Kirati people performs a speacial kind of dance called "Sakela" in this event playing various muscial instruments like Dhol, Jhyamta etc and wearing "Chhit ko Guneu" (specially patterened cloth) by Kirati women. This event of Kirati people has also been stated in Mundhum (holy book of Kirati people). This event is also called "Bhumi Puja" (Worship of Land) where Kirati people worship mother nature asking for good cultivation of crops during the season of April and thanking the god for giving good crops during this current season.
The legend of the celebration of Sakela as stated in Wikipedia is as follows:
The celebration is connected to many myths. According to the Kirat Mythology, it is said that before the marriage of Sumnima and Paruhang, Paruhang used to live in the heaven .One day, he saw beautiful Sumnima on the earth and fell in love. He made a beautiful comb, sent it to Sumnima who wished wed him.
Four children were born of them after marriage. But Paruhang left Sumnima in a hut on the bank of Dudhkoshi River and did not return for long time. One day, she saw a creeper on a stone while she was in search of food for her children. She tasted the creeper and it was full of power and happiness. She brought the creeper and made Buti, an intoxicating religious garland, and kept it safe. The Buti inspired everybody who saw it to tell the truth of her/his life. Paruhang returned suddenly. He tried to counsel angry Sumnima. She gave the Buti to Paruhang. This immediately made him glad and he started to tell what he had done. He had spent the time looking at the heaven and the earth from the top of Chomolongma (Mt. Everest ). He also said her that he had meditated, and visited the whole universe. Paruhang promised not to leave her, which made Sumnima dance with joy. It is believed the dance is the 'Sakela Dance'. For this reason, tradition is also that young boys and girls comes to participate this dancing festival to meet each other and find their love.

Constructive design criticism of suzannefranco.com
Suzaane Franco has been running suzannefranco.com and recently became second in the competition named Blogging Idol 2 after a tie breaker getting equal marks of 3, with the first Happy Schools Blog. Being a mother of three kids she enjoys internet marketing which she has been doing for about eight years. Living in Texas Hill country in USA, she has hobbies of beach, river, lake, pool, boating, traveling. She also enjoys playing Tennis very much.
So why she loves internet marketing so much? Let's read in her own words:
I believe that Zig Ziglar (love him!) had the right idea when he said, “If you help enough people get what they want … you’ll get what you want.” I want to build and run a successful online business. And I truly believe that if I help others build and run their own successful online businesses (which is just totally in my personality anyway) … I’ll reach my goals too.
Here is the commented version of suzannefranco.com.
NOTE: Any kind of comments are highly encouraged to apply. I hope you all reading this blog you get some ideas of designing. Do you want to share same kind of stories? Just email or comment me. I will be glad to get support and ideas from you too. I will be happy to suggest you and help you in anyways I can as a web developer.

Search songs and music albums by hacking Google
-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(wma|mp3) "<BANDNAME/SONG>"
Well wondering how can you hack into Google search? So let me tell you just copy the code above and paste in the Google search. Edit the BANDNAME and SONG with your list of choices and hit ENTER.
That's it! You get a long list of downloadable songs and music albums. Want to try more?
You can change the wma/mp3 to the extension you like eg. zip, jpg, gif to search with more variations. If you want to know inside out of the above crazy string then follow the following links:
Or if you want to search with much cleaner interface then try these ones:
Warning: Personally I am not responsible for any kind of damage using the above code by someone else. I suggest to buy a copy of music album before you are downloading any songs.
