‘सोह्रखुट्टे’मुनीको मान्छे

त्यो दिउसो म त्यहाँ पुग्दा सोह्रखुट्टे पाटी ढलिसकेको थिएन । तर त्यसको छानो उडिसकेको थियो । काठमान्डू सहरका सर्वाधिक ख्यातिप्राप्त ल्यान्डमार्करूमध्येको त्यो सत्तल छिट्टै नजिकै स्थानान्तरण हुनेवाला थियो । सडकलाई फराकिलो हुनबाट रोकेको हुनाले तुलनात्मकरुपमा एेतिहासिक त्यो संरचनालाई सार्न लागिएको थियो । त्यो प्रकृया निर्विवाद थिएन । तर मेरो ध्यान त्यसलाई खोतल्नु थिएन । म […]

Old Men of Bhaktapur

I saw a group of elderly men relaxing at a sattal in Bhaktapur in a recent afternoon. They were soft-spoken folks who chatted with each other in Newari/Nepal Bhasha. Some smiled occasionally while others maintained an unchanged facial expression for long. Some frequently moved their bodies and adjusted their sitting positions while others didn’t even move […]

Thabang: The village that didn’t vote; once hosted Maoist guerrillas

(यो लेखलाई नेपालीमा पढ्न यहाँ क्लिक गर्नुस्) On November 19, 2013 Nepal held national elections for the second Constituent Assembly. The country witnessed a record turnout. I was among the 9.4 million Nepalis who voted that day. But one entire village in remote mid-west Nepal abstained. Thabang boycotted the elections. One more reason to go […]

Nepal Votes. And I Also Voted. Again.

As you can see from the excerpt of an old entry below I was super excited about voting and about the election process back in 2008. It was because I believed, as I do now- sort of, those were the ‘historic’ elections for the CA. If same thing happens in exactly about five years, it […]
