A special wedding celebration was held in Kunming, Yunnan province, on June 29.

Moti Lal Dugar, a 72-year-old Nepalese billionaire, celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary with his wife at a resort hotel in town.

As a third generation entrepreneur, Mr. Dugar is now the chairman of MV Dugar Group and Sunrise Bank of Nepal.


Mr. and Mrs. Dugar gratefully received congratulations and wishes from all the guests who attended their ceremony. 

A number of traditional Chinese shows, like lion dance, fire breathing and bian lian (face changing in Sichuan Opera) brought the festive atmosphere of the venue to a new height. 

“The 50th anniversary is an extraordinary moment for my parents, so I couldn’t wait to prepare something very special for them,” said Vivek, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Dugar.

Vivek is also the main organizer of the celebration.



“We decided to hold this ceremony in Kunming because the city is quite beautiful, and it’s not far from South Asia,” said he.

“Many of my families are vegetarians, and it is easy to find a great choice of vegetables here in Kunming. That’s another reason why we picked up Kunming as the anniversary destination for my parents,” he added.

Having this ceremony in Yunnan also marks a new milestone for the business of MV Dugar Group.

“My family began trading with China back in the 1950s, and we hope to carry out more cooperation with Yunnan in the future, especially in the field of water resources utilization,” explained Vivek Dugar.



“We decorated the celebration venue with both Chinese and South Asian ornaments,” said Wang Weinan, a Kunming-based wedding planner. “But the dishes were all prepared by Nepalese chefs with an aim to make our guests feel at home.” 

As a major tourist hub in southeast China, Yunnan has been dedicated to branding itself as a “healthy living and tourist destination” in recent years.

Ceremonies of such would enhance the relationship between Yunnan and South and Southeast Asian countries, while boosting the wedding industry of the province to a large degree.
