Hindu are never terrorist because Hindu is the peaceful and cultural religion. Person worship chhath also for many reasons that we talk below. As it falls in the month of winter, the month of October or in November, people make different kinds of dishes and offer to their guests. Festival has much grace that should be distributed among in the family. Everybody wants their best and dreams the big. But due to the unwanted obstacle, people fail to fight with obstacles and become poor. The world respect only the shining star, not the falling stars. The person who has nothing, he is like the animal and behaved like an animal that man do with an animal.

The world is categorized in different races, cultures and economic groups. Nobody is wishing the good for others. they are just thinking about himself. The person who is poor depends on upon the god and prays with a pure heart for the fulfillment of their demand. The people of a different country especially the Hindu of the different country celebrates this Chhath with their natural ways. The views of pond and rivers are more decorating and attractive in the photo. Wearing of the new dress and the sound of crackers are adding the praise and value of chhath. In India, it is celebrated all over but in Nepal, it is only celebrated in Terai regions by the Madhesi community. Chhath has much power, people worship this festival very carefully without doing any mistakes and wrong thinking. But this Chhath is also celebrated twice a year. Most valuable Chhath is Kartik Chhath which is celebrated firstly. Chhath has different name as it is called in different states and country, that is

Chhath Parv
Chhath Puja
Dala Chhath
Dala Puja

People worship this Chhath with great courage and great happiness.  Let’s talk about the reasons for celebration :

1. Unity in the family :

Chhath Puja in NepalAs I have mentioned above people worship this festival for love and granting the wishes. In the Chhath, there comes all the family members together and makes the part in the celebration. As the festival goes up, the relation also goes strongly. All the members of the family help the man who is going to take fast and helps in their working hands. If anyone of the family has something goes wrong, the mistakes are forgiven because this is the time of festive. Everybody forgets their past mistakes and the things, start their life and rule of the family again with happy and helping each other. So this is the also one factor to celebrate Chhath.

2. Greeting the wishes :

The festival is also known as bonding the relationship and taking the care of own. As this is also the festival of celebration in the crowd. The person in the bank of ponds or river share their wishes and greetings to their friends and their own relatives. But remind the great thing wishing should be always positive. There must be positive wishing even though you are wishing to your enemy.  positive wishes reflect and act positively. If you wish and thinks bad for other you will be also in the same falling situation. There will not be seen the helping hands for you if you had never helped anyone in your life. React and return is two parts of the same coin. If you help and wish someone good, surely you also achieve well. The obstacles come in our way because we have done some unknowing mistakes, that we forget and raise our foot front.chhath puja picture download Quotes, cards, messages, wallpapers

Hoping good for other is hoping good for own selves. The assumption in the life comes not most time it gives very less and short opportunity to do and achieve the goal. If you fail in that time, the goal and your wish sink in the water. Wishes every time don’t mean that giving the gift but also the wanting good for them. it will be meaningless if there is not transportation of feeling is not done for celebrating Chhath.  Chhath itself consists the lots of meaning and mystery. If the communication of wishes is done there will be a construction of good and longevity relationship. The relationship works as the construction of bridges of happiness and helping. A single man is like the tree in the garden but the people who are grouped is like the tree in the forest which is more precious.  So this is also the better and best way to express and communicate your feelings and wishes to your owners and relatives. And it’s also the one reasons to share the love and respect in the crowd of people that seems only in the Chhath to celebrate it.
