BAUL Masters of Bengal
Rabindranath Tagore was inspired by them, calling himself one of their kind. Baba Allauddin Khan went around collecting their melodies before he established the Maihar School. Satyajit Ray included their songs and themes in his early black and white films.
Well, now that Purnal Das Baul and Dibyendu Das Baul have come to Kathmandu from the plains of Bengal, you have a chance to savour the essence of the 'madcap Baul', as Tagore called them and see why the geniuses in our part of the world were so transfixed by union with the divine.
Invitees only, 7 June, 5.30pm,
Nepal Music Centre, Pingalsthan,
Business and pleasure
The scenic backdrop of unbroken mountain ranges, stunning lakes, and serene weather make Pokhara perfect not only for casual travellers and trekkers, but also for hosting seminars, workshops or more relaxed team building activities.
The number of hotels spread across the city offer conference facilities for organisations to choose from according to their budget, purpose, and convenience. Maybe a visit to Pokhara will also freshen the minds of employees.
Start your day with the sunrise in Sarangkot and then head down to Pame for fresh fish with lunch. Later in the afternoon after meetings end, relax in the traditional hot springs of Bhurjung, and then drift Lakeside-wards in the evenings. Learn the lessons of cooperation and team building in Nepal’s cleanest city.
The second installment of Nepali Times EcoFair is finally here. The three-day event will feature various stalls displaying eco-friendly products and services. Know more about solar energy, bio energy, and electric vehicles. Learn about sustainable ideas and practices that help you do your bit for the environment, like rain-water harvesting, bio briquettes, and energy saving lights. Look around or purchase traditional crafts, recycled Lokta paper products, or organic coffee. And also enjoy live model presentations and musical performances.
