<March 5th>
After completing the meeting participants today were not working whereas it was the day for celebration amongst villagers and members. Choosing the auspicious day of Holi, together the villagers conducted the program of Japanese food festival in the afternoon and a farewell party from the side of villagers. The preparation of food started from about 11:30 am in the morning. Villagers also helped the participants to cook the Japanese dishes though they couldn’t get the proper idea of what they were making. It perfectly depicted the emotions which Japanese members and villagers shared for each other.
It was about evening when Japanese participant cut the pig brought by villagers in village’s volleyball court. Then the pig was cut and cooked. All villagers and Japanese participants together enjoyed the Japanese dishes and Nepali dish together. In the program itself the leader of FIWC’s group handed over the money to the village head Mr. Mohan which will be used in village work in the future. After that, villagers performed traditional dance of Magar( one of the ethnic group of Nepal) and Japanese performed the Japanese dances. The celebration went till about 9pm and then the participants went to their own homestays to sleep.
