Asar Pandra, the fifteenth  day of the third Nepali month marks the beginning of the rice planting season in the country. Known as Ropain Jatra or Dhan Diwas, farmers plant their first rice saplings of the season on this day. They celebrate the day with songs, dance, mud-splashing and a feast of dahi-chiura (curd and beaten rice).

Photojournalist Gopen Rai was in Nalinchok and Changunarayan for the fest.
