We nearly had 1000 audiences. The program started from 6.00 pm and lasted upto 10.30 pm. We found many smiling faces among the audiences that day and felt we did something great. Some of our audiences were a bit over excited and was little more emotional over times.
Singer Aim Baral was very charming and he was very happy to see our Bhutanese Artists performing so beautifully. Time and again he was asking audiences to accompany the local artists saying the real hidden artists were within themselves. He said, “This is the largest number of audiences I ever have performed in front in America”
As said, we Bhutanese Community of Pittsburgh planned to present pure Bhutanese Artists however to make more inclusive we planned to bring renowned Nepali Artists, Aim Baral. Remarkably, Aim Baral was very cooperative, friendly and our children benefitted a lot from him since they were taught the singing techniques by him for hours.

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.
