The Cosmos as a Kaleidoscope

 SC Suman Artist
Artist SC Suman came to Kathmandu four decades ago and the first site he went to see was the Pashupatinath Temple. There were more monkeys and more trees, he recalls. And less people. Everything looked orderly and beautiful.

In Suman’s new exhibition Mithila Cosmos: Songs of Innocence & Experience, this image of Pashupatinath is complemented by another painting of the temple as it stands now. This diptych, along with another displaying Kirtipur then and now, is the highlight of the show. ‘Pashupati Then’ naturally looks more peaceful, with colourful trees and fewer human figures. There are three monkey-like figures in this piece, the artist’s reference to the pictorial maxim The Three Monkeys, embodying the proverbial principle ‘see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.’

सधैं साहित्यिक कर्ममा व्यस्त रहने एक छोरी र एक छोराकी आमा उनी अहिले डिमेन्सिया (बिर्सने रोग वा समस्या) बाट पीडित हुनुहुन्छ। सेवानिवृत्त उहाँका पति इन्जिनियर शंकर गिरी अहोरात्र उहाँका सेवा–सु श्रुषामा व्यस्त हुनुहुन्छ। कवि हुनु आफ्नो ठाउँमा छ। कविताकै कारण जोडिएको हो– उहाँसँगका मेरो सम्बन्ध। तर जहिलेदेखि यो सम्बन्ध जोडियो त्यही दिनदेखि उहाँ मेरी दिदी हुनुभयो। अहिले पनि म उहाँलाई वानीरा दिदी नै भन्छु। दिदी नै मान्छु।

In 1992, Nepali was recognised as the 19th official Indian language and included in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India.

Nepali Literature Making it Known to the World

Capable and notable writers are getting lost in the crowds of less talented writers with connections. 
The growth of indigenous publishing and writing in recent years is a good sign. With the spread of education, a social and cultural change is happening and one instrument of cause for this change is the book. However, the growth of the reading-public has not increased with the pace of literacy and the educated mass.

And so far I can tell 
Love is necessary for the existence of life.
It's perfect weather for it
You and me, both
Perhaps if you were nearer to me
Moon,
I would love talking to you 
You are all incredible and awesome

Standing on the cliffs

On the banks of the river that carries the flood and bore

Walking alone

Gazing at the horizons for shore

I am drawing shape deep within the cloud‟s inner core

Samakalin Nepali Kathaharu

Of late, serious urges to anthologise generic creations with limits of period and epoch are being detected in Nepali literature. Not long after Momila edited selected Nepali poems, and Archana Thapa brought together female voices in anthologies, Prabhati Kiran has edited Samakalin Nepali Kathaharu, a collection of stories by contemporary writers, most of whom are in their early forties or younger. While, for instance, initiatives to collect women’s writing—specifically those of renowned authors—have been many, attempts to incorporate evolving and yet-to-be published authors have practically been nil.
