2013 - a Wet Dashain

Due to the influence of cyclone Phailin, Kathmandu and many parts of Nepal from eastern region to mid-western region is facing incessant rain since October 13th which coincides with the Maha Nawami, the 9th day of the greatest Hindu festival of Dashain in Nepal. While October 14th, the most important day of the festival - Vijaya Dashami, recorded almost 44mm of rain. Thanks to the prolonging influence of cyclone Phailin, to dismay of many festival lovers Dashain 2013 has been the wettest Dashain in recent years.

We have a perception of dry weather and clear sky during the festive season of Dashain. However, looking at the trend of weather during the Dashain festival, it is not necessarily true. Except for year 2012 - a perfect dry Dashain, meteorological department of Nepal recorded rain to certain degree during the season.

Also looking at the recent years data, only the day of Trayodashi is a total dry day in recent years. Coincidentally, GFS models also suggest intesity of rain caused by Phailin to get lowered from October 16th onwards.

Doleshwar Mahadev, Sipadol
Place: Sipadol, Bhaktapur

Extra info:
Doleshwor Mahadeva (Nepali:डोलेश्वर महादेव) is a Hindu Temple of Lord Shiva located in the Sipadol VDC, south eastern part of Bhaktapur District, Nepal, and is believed to be the head part of Kedarnath located in Uttarakhand, India

History
For 4000 years people have been searching for the head of (Hindu deity) Kedarnath who assumed the shape of a bull to avoid the five Pandava brothers,the heroes of the Mahabharat. The legend goes back to the fabled battle of Kurukshetra fought between the five Pandava brothers and their cousins, the 100 Kaurava brothers, which is the pivot of the Mahabharata. The Pandavas won, but sorrowed by the loss of lives, they renounced the kingdom they had wrested back and headed for the heavenly abode of the gods, believed to be atop the mighty Himalayan Mountains. The Pandavas reached the Kedarnath region to seek forgiveness from Lord Shiva for the loss of lives during the 18-day Mahabharata war. But Lord Shiva was not ready to forgive them and he took the form of a bull to avoid them. The Pandavas soon realized that the bull was Lord Shiva and tried to stop it by pulling it's tail. Suddenly the head got separated from the body of the bull and the Pandavas could not locate it. The hump-backed structure at Uttarakhand’s Kedarnath temple is worshipped as the torso of the holy bull.(ref: wikipedia)
