    Pahachahre । World Health Day

    Pahachahre Special Audio

    "Paha" means guest and "Chahre" means Chaturdashi. This day is also called "Pishach Chaturdashi". There is an ancient tradition of celebrating the Chartudashi of Chaitra Krishna Paksha with joy and excitement in Newa civilization.

    This is also the last Chartudashi of this year. This Chartudashi is considered as a religious end and faith destination for diseases and calamities that may occur during the early summer and dry season.

    Significance in Sanatana and Buddhist community
    This day is revered by the Neva community of both Hindu and Buddhist backgrounds. Today idols of Ganesh, Bhairav, Bhagwati, and Ashta Matrika are revered with special khat journey. This evening is celebrated with special worship of the hidden Mahadev (Lukumahadya :).

    This is the pisach form of Mahadev, who eats whatever he finds in a dirty place. On this day, this form of Mahadev is taken out of there and worshiped by offering clean garlic plants, traditional alcohol, and other food items. This festival is called Pisach Chaturdashi because of the worship of this pisach form of lord Mahadev.

    Another significance of this Chartudashi is the Ghode Jatra that will take place tomorrow.

    Today, in the Newar community, people wear a traditional mask (Mukundo) and dance. Several processions are seen on the streets and Kathmandu streets are seen to be busy in their traditional fiesta of Pahachaharey. Today, the Newa community organizes a grand banquet and invites their daughters, relatives, and friends to their homes. That is why today there is a belief that love, affection, harmony, and unity between family relationships are strengthened.

    It is said that there was a feud between King Pratap Malla of Kathmandu and King Srinivas Malla of Patan around 787 Nepal Sambat. It is said that a horse was run in Bholakhya: Tol in Patan so that the people of Patan would not go to see the horse procession in Kathmandu.

    I will talk about these issues on the day of the Ghode Jatra tomorrow.

    World  Health Day
    World Health day 2024: My health, my right
    World Health Day is a global health awareness day observed every year on April 7th. It is celebrated to mark the founding of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1948 and to raise awareness about important health issues facing people around the world. Each year, the WHO selects a theme for World Health Day that highlights a particular area of concern.

    Theme for 2024
    " My health, my right"
    The WHO Council on the Economics of Health for All has found that although at least 140 countries recognize health as a human right in their constitution, only 4 countries have mentioned how to finance it. To address these types of challenges, the theme for World Health Day 2024 is 'My health, my right'.

    Around the world, the right to health of millions is increasingly coming under threat.


    Do you know ?
    Diseases and disasters loom large as causes of death and disability.
    Conflicts are devastating lives, causing death, pain, hunger and psychological distress.
    The burning of fossil fuels is simultaneously driving the climate crisis and taking away our right to breathe clean air, with indoor and outdoor air pollution claiming a life every 5 seconds.

    The WHO Council on the Economics of Health forAll has found that at least 140 countries recognize health as a human right in their constitution. Yet countries are not passing and putting into practice laws to ensure their populations are entitled to access health services. This underpins the fact that at least 4.5 billion people — more than half of the world’s population — were not fully covered by essential health services in 2021.

    To address these types of challenges, the theme for World Health Day 2024 is 'My health, my right’.

    Hashtags for 2024:

    In 1948, countries around the world came together and founded WHO to promote health, keep the world safe and serve the vulnerable – so everyone, everywhere can attain the highest level of health and well-being. It is also an opportunity to motivate action to tackle the health challenges of today and tomorrow.

    Do you know?
    Air pollution kills 13 people every minute due to lung cancer, heart disease, and strokes.
    Nine out of ten people breathe polluted air.
    3.6 billion people lack safe toilets globally.
    2 billion people lack safe drinking water.
    829 000 people die from the diarrhoeal disease every year caused by polluted water and poor sanitation.

    And the post-COVID world has seen a lot of mental and emotional disturbances in human beings. It’s a question to all of us to review our lifestyle, smiles, and emotional balances and advocate for a safer and healthier world.

    Best and meaningful wishes

    -Suyog Dhakal

    Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
    Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
