Kushe Aushi-Father’s Day

Father, mother and teacher are given the place of God in Hindu religion. Father, Pita or Babu is guru, rakshak and the palankarta. That means father is teacher, protector and the savior. Father's day is the day of paying respect once again to him. 

Father’s Day is also known as Kuse Ausi or Pitri Tirpani Aausi or Gokarne Ausi. This day Nepali people pay their homage to their father with their favorite food, clothing and other dad’s favorite stuff. 

Mukh Herne means "to allow someone as our relative or give respect or to recognize the achievement of someone". 

This is a special day; we recognize and pay respect to our father for his care and love to us (his children and family) during his life. Hence, this day is called "Babu ko Mukh herne din”. The literal meaning of Mukh Herne is to see someone's face.
