छठ पर्वको संस्कृतको मूल शब्द ‘प्रतिहारषष्ठी’ हो। अपभ्रंश भएर छठ मात्र भनिएको हो। यसमा भगवान् सूर्यको उपासना हन्छ। शुद्धताका साथ छठपर्वको सामग्री तयार गरिन्छ। भारतीय संस्कृतिले ओतप्रोत भएका नेपाल, भारतलगायत दक्षिण एसियाका देशहरूमा यो पर्व धुमधामका साथ मनाइन्छ। नेपालको सन्दर्भमा मैथिल समुदायमा यसलाई बढी महत्त्वसाथ मनाइन्छ। आजकल पहाडी समुदायले पनि यस पर्वलाई महत्त्व दिँदै सूर्यको उपासना गर्ने गरेको पाइन्छ। ...थप जानकारी
We are a team of socially conscious, energetic and young professionals with an enthusiasm to contribute towards the Nepalese society. The overwhelming users in our facebook application - 'Nepali Patro' and the heart touching feedback mails we received were the motivation behind this social work. Lets make this an endeavor to serve where your small contribution can make a huge difference in promoting Nepal further.
Time is an undeniable entity - everything we do as we live along is associated to time and then to a date. Events, from birth to death are remembered according to a certain instance of time and date.
It was just an application made out of fun when we started Nepali Patro (as an application in facebook) - but when the usability aspect of the application became apparent, as Nepali users staying abroad found it easy and handy to remember certain important events and days because of the Nepali date displayed, we were energiized to make it a full-fledged application and improve it further to enhance its services.
We intend to improve this application for a social cause. Nepali dates, events and festivals be remembered and promoted using this tool - so we envision this application not only as a static calendar but an interactive tool where user themselves can contribute to the Nepalese society by providing information on Nepalese events/festivals or by organising events and promoting them.
This application uses facebook's 'facebook oauth' so that you dont have to repeat the cumbersome registration process yet again. You can login as a facebook user and access the functionality.
Hope we have been able to touch the lives of many. In the days to come, we hope our small effort will flourish in a way every Nepali users will help us promote our work in the whole world
