Each week Haamro Chautari offers the chance for the Nepalese community to gather round and share their culture, news of the local community as well as the latest from Nepal. The hosts also present a selection of new music and golden hits. Interviews and updates on community events in Auckland keep the connection with the Nepalese way of life.
