Redefining contemporaneity/ MAHESH PAUDYAL

Samakalin Nepali KathaharuOf 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.

Tamor Whispers in Tranquility/ Dr Madhav Joshi "Lamjunge"

Oh! Bluish Tamor –n-Taplejung riverine,

Trans-Himalayan origin of thine,

Setting eco-niches on ooze-ores.

Lessons from a vagabond/ Mahesh Paudyal 'Prarambha'

Essence a novelAfter his essay collection A Wonderer Within, writer Dipesh Parajuli has come up with his novel Essence , the success of which remains to be seen. The novel steers clear of the criticism of lacking linguistic and grammatical refinement—one most commonly received by Nepalis writing in English. This may set Parajuli apart from many who try for fiction in English, but the young writer, in his twenties as yet, has yet to innovate in the domains of narrative structure and choice of themes.

Capsized by Affective Fallacy/ Mahesh Paudyal 'Prarambha'

Chhori Jwai Bhetna AmericaOf late, travelogues have been making an appearance in Nepali literature in quick succession. A thorough scansion of a majority of them suggests a commonality in style—an exceptionally narrow range of stylistic variation, and a lack of unique thematic expression. Some carry a camouflage of linguistic intricacy that simply veil their thematic barrenness and utter monotony, while others present a photographic description of places visited that often read like tourist guide books or personal diaries.

I am a feminist/ Prof. Dr. D. P. Bhandari

Woman is a beautiful thing
From the moments of man's creation
Woman came before man
And she was the first
To look speechlessly at the stars
And to wondrously tread the earth
Then man followed her ways.
Right to the beginning of speech
God knows for how long
Man and woman walked speechless
Among fish, fowls and animals
Upon the luxuriant surface of the earth
Naked and clad to the sky
they searched their food and shelter
Together, upon the opulent planet
And slowly moved into holy act of copulation
In friction the language was born
