Suk Gurung undergoing treatment
Mar 1, 2015-
Suk Gurung, the lyricist of popular songs like Chekyo Chekyo Deurali Dada (performed by Nepathya) and Bhaitika ma Bhetna Aaula (sung by Raju Lama), among others, was recently hospitalised due to the compications arising from diabetes.
Gurung, who has already lost the vision of his left eye to the disease, was placed in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Green City Hospital, Gongabu, for 12 days. Though discharged from the hospital for now, the lyricist is still undergoing treatment.
Born and brought up in Pokhara, Gurung started playing harmonium and guitar while at school.
Later, in the early 80’s, Gurung, together with Amrit Gurung and Bhim Pun, formed Bhanjyang Jhankar—a band of young music enthusiasts that also did some theatre performances.
Gurung got his first break in the Nepali music scene when senior artist Mira Rana sang one of his songs. Gurung has recorded more than 100 songs till date.
Gurung is a video editor by profession. Despite suffering from the disease, he is still working on his creations and plans to record them as soon as possible.
