In May, a second earthquake struck, setting back relief work and demoralizing Nepalis right when the earthquake was drifting out of the headlines. Food will be served!

There is a lot more of youth involvement in writing and performing poetry, in both Nepali and English. The themes cover the personal as much as the political.

So a slam poetry contest will veer from heartfelt odes to the body, love and teenage rebellion to weary satires on society and politics. Political instability — or stagnation, if you will, in the sense of enduring corruption — clearly frustrates the Nepali youth, who refuse to accept the dysfunction that warps their futures.

An evening of literature
Your most recent work was an acclaimed historical memoir about Thamel. Lit , the literary magazine you edit, dedicated a full issue to translations. What do you think is the role of the writer in modern Nepal? Writers may be engaged in hand-to-hand combat on a number of fronts — writing, editing, translating, interacting with peers and audiences, and, often, a tedious job as well, to pay the bills.
And finally, what can publishers of Nepali writers do better to make their works reach a larger audience? To a great extent, Nepali publishers have succeeded in this through marketing ploys and promoting the cult of the celebrity writer. International publishers of Nepali writers need to work harder to market and distribute the books — they owe it to the authors.
