CU Celebrates Nepali New Year

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._ More than 200 people gathered at Cameron University Sunday afternoon to celebrate the Nepali New Year.

Bishaka Karki is from Nepal and has been living in Oklahoma and attending Cameron for three years. She says participating in events like Nepali New Year reminds her of home.

"It is really difficult sometimes," says Karki. "You feel like you want to cry and give up and just go home … you feel like an outsider most of the time, but stuff like this makes you feel a little closer to home."

There were traditional Nepali performances at the event as well. Nepal uses a special calendar, so Sunday marks the first day of 2071.
