Topi Diwas - Baburam Bhattarai, Anita Yadav

Posted by Dhruba shrestha Jan 2, 2017 :
A Dhaka topi 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[clarification needed] 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. The founder of the Art of Living Sri Sri Ravi Shankar announced March 1st as the Dhaka topi Day in India celebrated by Indian Gorkhas.
