This Retired CISF Officer Threw a New Year’s Eve Party for Stray Dogs, Treated Them to Biryani


No matter how epic your New Year’s eve plans were, chances are you probably missed the best party thrown in India on December 31. That’s because it was thrown by the sweetest retired Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) havildar, and was an exclusive New Year’s eve bash for the stray dogs in his locality.

According to a report by The Hindustan Times, Kamal Tamang drew up a special menu to treat his guests, including beef biryani. He says it was a no-brainer when it came to cooking up this particular dish because it is a delicacy he himself happens to love. Beef soup was also served during the festivities that took place in a small town called Sonada in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal.

While Tamang has long been feeding stray dogs in his neighbourhood, for New Year’s eve he wanted to do something special to reward dogs for being so loyal.


He says, “We human beings observe different festivals and parties, but the dogs who are very faithful to us can’t celebrate. Therefore, I thought that the dogs in my locality should also celebrate.”

To ensure the get-together was a success, Tamang had to wake up early to begin his preparations. While the guest list was thrown open to any dog that wished to show up, a total of 15 came to ring in 2017 in style. In fact, some of the dogs came much earlier than anticipated but that can be forgiven because even the best of us can’t keep away from good biryani for long.

The dogs who attended this soiree weren’t at hand to comment but we are sure they must have had a “woof” of a time.
