June 1, 2011 marks the second anniversary of the establishment of TexasNepal.com and we would like to thank all our dear website viewers and our well wishers for their love and continuous support that has helped us to reach this far and also has been encouraging us everyday to work harder.
We initially launched the website as dfwNepal.com to serve the need of a communication portal for Nepalis living in Dallas – Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex. June 1, 2009 became the official launch date. Since then we have been publishing articles, photos, videos, news and more on our website on a regular basis. We have received several suggestions and comments over these months and we appreciate all our website visitors’ concern for us.
Renaming to TexasNepal.com
