Dhaka Topi (Nepali Hat)

A Dhaka topi (Nepali: ढाका टोपी ) is a type of hat, popular among Nepalese people and Nepali (anything of, from, or related to Nepal).

The hat is made of a fabric called dhaka, which is also used for a type of blouse, a dhaka-ko-cholo which translates “blouse made of dhaka fabric”. The word topi means “hat” in the Nepali. Men wear a long Kurta Suruwal or Daura Suruwal and Patuka instead of a belt. The hat is worn by Nepali communities. Dhaka Topis are also given away as gifts during Dashain, Tihar and Chhath festivals.[citation needed] Many nepalese men and women still wear costumes made from Dhaka on a regular basis, and the fabric itself unequivocally represents Nepali tradition and history.

Happy New Year 2017

New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar’s year count increments by one.

Many cultures celebrate the event in some manner  and the 1st day of January is often marked as a national holiday.

In the Gregorian calendar, the most widely used calendar system today, New Year occurs on 1 January (New Year’s Day). This was also the case both in the old Roman calendar (at least after about 713 BCE) and in the Julian calendar that succeeded it.

Other calendars have been used historically in different parts of the world; some calendars count years numerically, while others do not.

During the Middle Ages in western Europe, while the Julian calendar was still in use, authorities moved New Year’s Day variously, depending upon locale, to one of several other days, among them: 1 March, 25 March, Easter, 1 September, and 25 December. Beginning in 1582, the adoptions of the Gregorian calendar and changes to the Old Style and New Style dates meant the various local dates for New Year’s Day changed to using one fixed date, January 1.

The widespread official adoption of the Gregorian calendar and marking January 1 as the beginning of a new year is almost global. (The 2014 New Year celebrations held in Dubai broke the world record for the most fireworks set off in a single display,[2] lasted for six minutes and used over 500,000 fireworks.)

Regional or local use of other calendars continue, along with the cultural and religious practices that accompany them. In Latin America, various native cultures continue the observation of traditions according to their own calendars. Israel, China, India and other countries, continue to celebrate New Year on different dates
