Nepali Army is set to organise symbolic inauguration of Nepali’s biggest festival Dashain, on the seventh day called Fulpati, in view of the COVID-19.

The Nepali Army, which is also an integral part of the official celebration of Dashain in the country, will officially mark the beginning of the festivities by firing cannons and performing other rituals at Army’s pavilion in Tundikhel.

“Although there will be cannon firing on the day of Fulpati this Dashain, the celebration won’t be like that of last year,” said Nepali Army Spokesperson Santosh Ballav Poudel. “We will continue our tradition, but without fanfare and gathering due to the grim scenario created by the deadly coronavirus,” Poudel said.
