Last Year I celebrated Maha Shivaratri at my home in Pokhara. Like most guys I enjoyed the craziness of the festival. It’s an excuse to stay out late, drink, smoke and play with fire – all in the name of worship of Lord Shiva.
In Pokhara there is a tradition of building large fires in the street. Children often steal wooden things from house to fuel the fires. It is believed to be bad luck to discipline them because they are stealing for worship.
