The Cosmos as a Kaleidoscope

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.’

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.

The International Frog Conference / Bhairav Aryal

Bhairav Aryal EssayIn today's world, a son has greater worries than the unemployed; a journalist is in a greater rush than a taxi car. On top of that, if someone takes up journalism in order to stave off the daily hassles of being a son, you can imagine how patchy his life gets. And I am the kind of journalist who must serve journalism all day on the basis of a rickety cycle, and enjoy the nectar of filial life in the early evening, scraping out the pot for storing grains.
