KATHMANDU, NEPAL - In Kathmandu's Dubar Square, a young girl lights mustard oil lamps on the eve of Tihar, the Festival of Lights, which is celebrated for five days in the fall. Tihar is a time when brothers and sisters pay respect to one another. The women serve an elaborate meal to the men, while the men return the gesture by giving a gift, usually money. On the fifth day, brothers and sisters pray to Yama, the god of death, that long life and prosperity be granted to their family. (Photo © Jock Fistick)
