dashain and meat

dsc03266

Drinks, meats and cards.

One of these will definitely will  hit your mind when you talk about Dashain festival.

I don’t know Dashin is all about meat or not but when ever someone talks about Dashin festival, meat and its different variety  will definately come in the mind at any point of time.

Meat is one of the important component of this festival. नेपाली समाजमा दसैँको नम्बर एक आकर्षण मासु नै त हो। In one of the story Manoj Dahal at  setopati  sarcastically writes सदियौंदेखि खान नपाएर खरिएका हामी। भोको समाज! शरीरले थेग्ने भए सिंगै खसी खर्लप्पै निलिदिन्थ्यौँ होला। Adding flavor to the topic  मासु नखाने रक्सी नछुने जुवा नखेल्ने घुमघाम नगर्ने भए फेशबुकमै दशैँ मनाउदा हुन्छ Like र Comment गर्दै दशैँ बिताए हुन्छ ।।

During dashain our breakfast to dinner all the items are occupied by the meat items.       express this fact in different style as बिहानै खाजामा मासु, दिउँसो खानामा मासु र साझ खानामा पनि मासु नै मासु तरकारि हुने दिनहरुलाई दशै भनिन्छ especially for the children,  dashin is like   पान को पात… मासु नभै खाइदैन धान को भात… मासु भात सलल

For the first some days it becomes fun  यो थालमा मासु आउला भनि आशा गरिरहें ! बदलामा मैले घर पछाडी  रोपेको लौकाको पो तरकारी पो बनाई  ल्याए !! but when the days goes on the meat item becomes  boring.     writes “anyone else suffering from धेरै-भो-मासु  syndrome–I don’t want to look at it anymore syndrome? But actually before coming to that point we come in the delusion; when we cannot choose ourself whether we should eat the meat or not    नखाउ भने ठूलो भाका भन्छन खाउ भने झुसिलडकर आइसक्यो

There is another dimension of this meat consuming phenomenon. Some people love the meat item but for them, the love towards the animals count much more   says  मासु नि   छोड्न सकिन्न, खसी काटी खान नि माया लागेर आउंछ ! Mass consumption of the meat item during the dashin becomes problematic when situation occurs   सिँगै खसीको मासु खाल्डामा गाडीयो मासु पुरै गनाएर ।। दशै त झुर भयो नी बोरो. If we ignore it and consume the meat without caring its type it becomes    मासु नपचेर दशैँकाे दक्षिणा डाउटरलाई बुझाउन पर्रलाकि भनेर बहुत टेन्सन भैसक्यो हजुर… पेट छामे कि  हजार ठटाउछन फेरि ।

Some become proudly vegetarian and writes   एक किलो खसिको मासु बराबर को प्रोटिन आधा माना भट्मास मै हुन्छ, तेसैले खसिको मासु सट्टा भट्मास साधेर अचार बनाइयो , खाइयो !! And Lastly,  “कराईमा मासु पाक्दै गरेको देख्दा मांसाहारीको मुख रसाउँछ। घाँस काट्दै गरेको देख्दा साकाहारीको मुख रसाउँछ कि रसाउन्न होला? And how can I forget the words like   दसैंमा राँगो र खसिको मासु हसुरेर 6 pack body बनाउने ठूलो धोको छ ….

Anyway eat safely, stay healthy
