A book based on the life of Keshav Bahadur Karki, a self-made scientist who experimented with organic oil produced from herbs and its potential as fuel, has been launched amid a function held in Palpa. Written by Hiramani Gaywali, the biography, titled Alag Baato, was launched by author Neelam Karki ‘Niharika’.  Forty-six-year old Keshav Bahadur Karki who initially started out as a truck driver came into the limelight after manufacturing fuel from herbs like Sajiwan, Salla and Bakaaino. Despite his relatively poor academic background—Karki doesn’t even have a secondary level degree—the many scientific experiments Karki conducted raised brows in his hometown of Palpa. Karki currently owns a water supply company, which provides employment to 50 individuals.  The book details Karki’s childhood, his many ups and downs, and his ascent to fame as a “yuwa baigyanik,” as he is known as in his hometown Palpa.  (PR)
