A Nepali legendary folk song, ‘Riting Riting Nabajau Binayo..’, rocked entire Beldangi camps Tuesday as its sexagenarian folk singer Lakshmi Prasad Joshi started dancing in the stage, entertaining hundreds of thousands of exiled Bhutanese in Beldangi-II.

The song, which singer Joshi had first song this song 62 years ago, has been a popular song among his fans of all ages.

Joshi was then joined Anju Panta, a Nepali ghazals and playback singer from Kathmandu, with her over half a dozen of popular items including ‘Nabirse Timilaiā€¦,’ and ‘Tirkha Lagyo Paani Khayeh..’ among others.

Organised by Camp Mediation Center and solely funded by resettlement aspirant Ghana Shyam Lamghadey, the program also felicitated artists Joshi, Panta, journalists Dikesh Lama and Chetan Adhikari, among others.

Lamghadey sponsored the program as his a token of love and remembrance to his fellow-refugees prior to his departure to the west through the ongoing third country resettlement program.

Yet, another remarkable part of the program was performance by television comedian Suleman Shankar alia Ikku.
