Adelaide , August 22. The Bhutanese Community resettled at Adelaide in Australia celebrated Teej festival along with various cultural programmes here yesterday.

The program was organized at Coglin Community Hall in the city and was attended by more than a hundred participants, mostly female. Meanwhile, traditional Nepali stuff (Dhakane) was served. The participants entertained themselves by singing Sangini, the famous folk song through which a married daughter would express her suffering while at her husband’s house to her parents. Prayers and dances were other attractions of the program.

Mrs. Cynthia, one of the managers of Migrant Resource Center of South Australia and guest of the celebration hailed the beauty of rich culture that Bhutanese had carried along. “The programme as this would make you feel like living in your own cultural environment,’ she said.
Each adult member of the community contributed five dollars for the program expanses.

  1. Adelaide Team,
    This is wonderful to celebrate such event in freedom and under no pressure from anyone. The most significant achievement of this even is keeping our culture, passing this to younger generations and celebration by self interest for everyone in goodwill and not imposed by others.
    Please keep it up, Bhanu Jayanti earlier this year by the same willing minds was another cultural significance you have done in SA.
    I hope you all will carry on all the good work.
