The Royal Ghosts: Stories of Contemporary Nepal
The Royal Ghosts: Stories of Contemporary Nepal
Description
About the Book:

The Royal Ghosts features character trying to reconcile their true desires with the forces at work in Nepali society. Against the backdrop of the violent Maoist insurgencies that have claimed thousands of lives, these characters struggle with their duties to their aging parents and oppressive caste system and the complexities of arranged marriage. In the end they manage to find peace and connection often where they least expect it with the people directly in front of them. These stories brilliantly examine not only Kathmandu during a time of political crisis and cultural transformation but also the effects of that city on the individual consciousness.

About the Author:

He is the author of Arresting God in Kathmandu which earned him a Whiting Award, and the Guru of Love which was a New York Times Notable Book, a San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year and a finalist for the Kiriyama Prize. He Lives in Bloomington Indiana.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
