With time, the strong culture that we Nepalese abide to are fading off. We often don’t know what items are necessary for a holy ritual or we are lost when it comes to what step comes after what. The Hindu calendar is flooded with festivals and this new app, RitiRiwaj will help you overcome these obstacles and keep your culture and rituals alive. This app will give you a basic structure of how the rituals must be conducted apart from letting the users know what item is required to conduct it along with the stores that has the availability for the same.
