Seventh Nepali Topi Diwas (Nepali Cap Day) was observed across the country on Wednesday.
Youths with Nepali caps on their head gathered at Maitighar Mandala and Basantapur today, the first day of the Gregorian calendar, to mark the day as in the previous years. The youth also organised a morning rally.
Jagaaruk Youth Abhiyan started celebrating the 'Topi Day' since 2070 BS for the preservation of typical Nepali original attire.
The Abhiyan has been celebrating Nepali Topi Day demanding Nepali Topi (Dhaka Topi, Bhadgaule Topi) should be declared as the national identity after the then government removed Daura Suruwal, Topi and Gunyu Cholo from the list of national dress.
The youths donning Daura Suruwal and Dhaka Topi stressed the need for preserving national dress, demanding recognition to Dhaka topi as national identity.
