    The age of the anti-hero

    What inspired the stories in your latest book, Pratinayak?Pratinayak is a collection of stories which covers various phases that the Nepali society has gone through. I did not write this book in a single sitting. I wrote the stories over a span of many years. This anthology has stories that range from the ones I wrote when I was just starting out as a writer to ones that I wrote only very recently. In a way, this book sums up my writing journey till date and compiles stories that best describe my style of writing. Hence, I cannot put a finger on a single thing that inspired all the stories. All stories are unique in their own way, and every story is inspired by a different scenario. However, the theme that binds all the stories together is the hardship and struggle of the Nepali people. Our society has gone through various changes over the last few decades. This book is an effort to put light on that evolution and how it has changed lives of the people across the country.

    What space do the historically deprived, culturally marginalised communities occupy in Nepali society, where individual life and cultural practices are being sacrificed at the altar of the privileged? This is the question that the latest string of plays in Kathmandu’s bourgeoning theatre scene is trying to explore, as they wrestle with the question themselves.

    What is a city?

    Cities are fascinating. Kathmandu has been a home and much more to me all these years, and all my life, I have been exploring its streets, trying to understand what exactly makes this space a city? Recently, I found myself asking the same question in a city half way around the world.

    Whose government is it anyway?

Visiting the coastal city, where her husband, Heeralal Niure, had been living and working as a driver, sightseeing was the only thing on her mind at the time.
