The president of Association of Nepalese in Quebec (ANQ) Mr. Muga Rajbhandari concedes that Montreal's Nepali population is tiny but the needs for their quake-stricken homeland are great.

Because of diverse ethnic groups and traditional beliefs, Nepal has numerous cultural practices that may appear unusual to a person on his/her first visit to the country. Do not feel offended if a Nepalese woman hesitates to give you a hand. Especially women, but greet you with "Namaste”, a gesture reminiscent of a praying position, in which the two palms are placed together. Below are some common Do's and Don'ts which may be helpful to every one who wish to visit Nepal.
