Bhutanese Community Association of Pittsburgh (BCAP) observed 199th Bhanu Jayanti on the July 14th with different nepali cultural items, poem competetion, free poem recitations and graduate student honoring program.
Many would be coughing with dry throat or fall dehydrated without the water provided by the Sahayogi Haatharu( Helping Hands) Group. Many would yawn continuously in the hall without the spicy musical performances by the United Youth Group, Pittsburgh. The serious and humorous verses recited as fillers appropriately filled the gaps .It wouldn’t be Bhanu Jayanti without the recitation of verses from the Ramayan by Mr. Hem Mishra and the story of pioneer poet Bhanu Bhakta Acharya by Mr.Shyam Khanal. The audiences enjoyed the Bhakti song with equal admiration. Students Group of Pittsburgh was a major attraction of the event. Their production is praiseworthy; trailer alone spoke volumes of their hard work and capabilities. The other side of the program: Monetary contributions from Himalaya Grocery, Nepali Bazaar and from the two individuals: Pankaj Lathia and Jaya Shah. BCAP appreciates for their philanthropic move. The MCs – Mr. Tara Phuyal and Ms. Uma Gautam kept the event going smoothly until the end.
Overall, the Bhanu Bhakta Jayanti celebration committee deserves all the credit on the successful completion of the event. None can dream of the success of the program without the sound system. Remarkably, after the program was concluded a group of Nepali laureates gathered for an organized literature activities in the forthcoming days mainly keeping the head office in Pennsylvania.
The program was chaired by Mr.K N Timsina and the Chief guest of the program was Mr.Bhakta Ghimire who hailed from Akron, OH.
