Spot: Tribhuvan Park, Thankot
Date: Saturday, 16th December, 2006
Outline: Vishnu and Sharad
As we recall history of Nepal, Poush 1 would be Constitution Day and many of our friends might have taken part in the march- pass made compulsory by the then Government. However, this Poush 01 took the other way for friends from Padmodaya 2036 alumni. They had a wonderful time at Tribhuvan Park to recall those school days and mingle with themselves in the picnic.
It was almost 8 AM when we guys gathered at the school premises to set for Thankot. However, we finally gathered at the spot not before 10, which is usual for Nepalese. To our surprise, some generous soul and hands were busy with preparing breakfast, jeri-swari, and eggs. As one eyed at the preparation, it didn’t explain picnic at all, but rather it looked more like a well-served and full of hospitality from some restaurant. This was made possible by none other than Bijaya Kayestha who stood during the picnic like a general and on behalf of all friends must thank Bijaya for this noble deed.
After enjoying breakfast, we were engaged in exchanging experiences gathered from their impersonal lives, some were hovering around to explore the natural beauty, some were taking pleasure of watching others enjoying. Rudra even managed a short tour to Kanakot, Rudra’s birth place, along with some of us to explore the possibility of joint venture in due course. Thus we missed the Captain of the ship for a while. However, it was pleasant to learn that the ship was full boarded. No one can deny that not all are born with the abilities to direct the courses.
Only Chiura and Bread were source of carbohydrate to minimize its intake. As usual, more people preferred eating BBQ than participating in its process. It was so superb that every body was, with no doubt, enjoying it in full swing, especially along with wee-drams, which was also a good combination for culmination to the apex of delight-ness for some guys. Outcome of the picnic can also be attributed to the unlimited personal secrets that were unveiled intriguingly. However, this has helped to even add the real value of having a company.
It was second picnic in rows and it normally takes place when Rudra visits from Boston. For both events, the major credit for initiation goes to Rudra. To our surprise, he was interestingly engaged in BBQ preparation.
In general, the picnic ended just before the dusk. It was incredibly full of enjoy, charming and fabulous. The next picnic has been planned some day in the upcoming spring upon Rudra’s arrival, where all friends would be, most likely, invited along with their family. That shall provide us an opportunity to expand our circle again.
