After writing umpteen emails to the Shruti Sambheeg team and particularly Achyut Ghimire Dai, they finally aired the much appreciated work of SaruBhakta, Pagal Basti. And I am pretty sure that I wasn’t the only one who wrote requesting to read-out this novel.
There is no-one opposing that this pagal-basti is one of the best novel of Nepal, if not the best. Saru Bhakta, a pen name of Bhakta Raj Shrestha, published this book in 2048BS (1990 is it?) when the country was just retaining claim after turmoil.
SaruBhakta
This is not an review, but since I was child, the Saru Bhakta I knew always mixed some Abstract English word in between his works, that usually used to hard for kid like me to understand. I read Pagal Basti, when I was in Class-10, around the same time I got to know who Hippies were, and I started searching the similarity between the “Wood-stock” and the “pagal-basti”. Whenever I will meet saruBhakta(provided if I didn’t get dumbstruck) I will definitely ask this question to him.
Ok.. folks, sorry to make you read this, Here are a few(will add later, as Achyut dai keeps on reading) episodes of Pagal basti, which you can download..
