I picked up the translated version of this book in an amazing bookshop in Kathmandu as I was keen to read something from a native author. The story is a tragic one and unfortunately one (perhaps partly due to something being lost in translation)that I did not particularly enjoy. I did not 'connect' with any of the characters and even although it was a short story it became a bit of a chore to finish.

I read the novel quite long time ago, probably some 13 years ago, during my high-school days! I was literally blown away that time! May be I was too young for such a great piece of fiction, but every sentence in this novel are so well constructed and so powerful! Although Parijat being a female writer, she crafted the novel so perfectly from the perspective of a middle aged Gorkha vetaran who is suffered by the middle age crisis chiefly sex.

धेरै हला र खला सुनेर पढेको थिएँ, साह्रै राम्रो लागेन । यो पुस्तकमा "वरी" भन्ने नाम र शङ्कर लामिछानेको परोवाक बाहेक अरू केहि पनि चाखलाग्दो पाईन ।

Lost in Translation.
One of the best fiction I have ever read. The story delves into the delicacy of life and gives a totally different perspective to look at it. I was so much dragged into the story that I never wanted it to end; but it did and did it superbly. A very short read but have potential to change you. Parijat is an exceptionally great writer. I would highly recommend this book.

The best thing abt this book is that this book is written by a woman.
It has a simple and true love story and shows a real heart of a man.
Simplicity and realistic makes this book awesome.
