Nepal is dominated by agriculture. More than 60 % of people of Nepal depend on the agriculture-based profession. The “rice planting festival” of Nepal is one of the country’s most important monsoon seasons which mark the first planting of the premier staple crop. This festival is celebrated on 15th Ashar (29th June this year) of Nepali calendar every year as a tradition of Nepalese culture.

Fifteenth of Ashar is the day when the crop planting season officially begins. On the festival day, all over the farmer get-together at their paddy field where ladies plant the rice and gentleman plough the field to make the land suitable for planting the paddy. Rice Planting Festival is also known as Ropai Jatra. People from all over Nepal and abroad get together and enjoy this day by playing mud, eating Dahi-chiura (yoghurt and beaten rice), drinking wine, dancing and singing the Ropain geet(traditional planting song).
