Time passes so quickly sometimes Just yesterday I was dreaming of making Nisha my daughter in law And now the wedding is already upon us She is gradually getting away from us You feel that way in the beginning But when you get grandchildren the world will seem the same again Good Morning, Pokhara !

.. Abhash! Shut up! Happiness spill over when we are around The color of happiness paints the world bright I’ll fly from the world to touch the moon Of the wanton wind I’ll change its ways Of the wanton wind I’ll change its ways Of the wanton wind I’ll change its ways Where is our destination? Where are our dreams? I’ll steal all hidden joys of the world The moon and sun, pearls and jewels I’ll find May I see the world through my pearled eyes May I shape the world with mine own hands May I see the world through my pearled eyes May I shape the world with mine own hands Dawn’s first rays search for your face Heart loses itself in wild-flower scents Dawn’s first rays search for your face Heart loses itself in wild-flower scents If hands join, the world becomes endless If hearts join, life blossoms here Where does hope lead? Where does joy lead? I’ll fly to change the color of the skies As a sun of joy I’ll spread happiness If hands join, the world becomes endless If hearts join, life blossoms here Do you know, guys? Nepal is famous in the world because we have beautiful mountains No ! Strikes, pollution, traffic-jam, power-cuts — we’re famous for that too Shut up, Abhash! Talk something positive That is the fact Every year, at least 20 thousand tourists must come to Nepal We likely make a lot of money from rafting, handicraft and trekking Yes.
.. so? It is sad that Nepal is still known for what foreigners think of it That’s why we only talk about Italian pizza and burgers… …whereas foreigners spend dollars to buy our gundruk In fact, they think our tungba and millet gruel are healthy and hygienic True! What is Nepal lacking in? Nepal is our nation, but it’s feelings emotions and unity are driven by others Please! Don’t get emotional Let’s chill, buddies! Promise me, Binaya– That we’ll come to Nepal at least once every year! I promise! In fact, I want to spend half of my life with you and our child in Nepal Happy now? Yeah, I’m happy But, just half of my life Only half your life? How old are you now? Thirty plus? Listen! The entire house must be decorated It must be painted fresh Flowers and lamps must be everywhere It is my granddaughter’s wedding! Seema – how is the preparation for the wedding going? Don’t you worry about a thing! I’ve given Abhash all the responsibility Abhash? Is he from the bride’s side or from the groom’s side? Me? I’m from both sides.

.. Still taking your bullshit? Asshole! He’s trying to kill me! Fuck you! I’ll be back! Bastard! Fuck you! It has been three years since we last met Me, and Nisha In these three months, nothing has changed Emotions and empathy are the same I still feel her presence As if she is around me Excuse me Do you have the Buddha? Sorry – I wanted to buy the Buddha Just a minute Here.
.. The Buddha How much is this? This is the last copy we had So – you can have it for free Are you sure? Of course! Thanks! You don’t have to thank us We’re glad a reader like you is taking it Where were you lost for 3 years? I searched for you everywhere Nisha Shrestha! We were friends once.
.. talk to me There was nothing between us You were right – Your relations with women were only about sex Not of friendship #Life changes with every moment and isn’t worthy of trust# Binaya – I’m pregnant.
.. Please come back quickly! Never call me again! It is over… we never met… Is that clear? Binaya! #If there is any meaning to life I should be laughing with you# Aah! The story of innocent love! That night, the three of us Were so high on the New Year’s We had no care for the world But, the same night, news came from the US that Binaya’s grandma had died We were so busy partying.
.. …we never realized we were being called Although the wedding date was near The sad news stopped the wedding The brief joy of New Year’s changed instantly into grief Uncle and Binaya left for the US I returned home, leaving poor Nisha alone After that day, Nisha, I and Binaya never met again Happy New Year.
.. I didn’t know a new year had started But, new days, new nights, new mornings and seasons have no meaning for me 2068… It has been two years since I left Pokhara and came to Kathmandu A lot has changed in two years In the last two years, Grandma died My daughter Prakriti is two years old I’ve been teaching adult education for the last two years Everything changed in two years Including my choices.
.. I believe more in the elders now I will read today’s news out to you I’m the one reading Why are you wearing your glasses? I started each class by reading a news But I still don’t understand something Whenever I started reading the news The entire class wears glasses.
.. So strange… My little princess! Are you playing? Ma! What’s the commotion outside? A new man has moved into the neighborhood Into Daya’s place He’s been yelling, drunk since the morning It couldn’t be a good man Only drunks, gamblers and liars live there Why are you so scared of the society? If I were scared of the society I would have been dead by now But to suppress your own life.
.. …that is another kind of death Mary! Mary! Forgive me… Mary ran into your house You? Mary — I mean my dog If I remember right You are Prabhu Singh Kunwar Seema! Seema Shrestha Are you here these days? I think I am.
.. Will you stand outside all day or will you come inside? Please! Mary! Come in… It has been years since we met You left Pokhara suddenly When my wife died, I didn’t want to live there anymore You didn’t remarry? I was fine a bachelor.
.. I mean a widower Did you remarry? I was fine a spinster… I mean a widow Where is Abhash these days? He must be searching for someone What? He is of age now You’re still the same funny man Just a moment Mary, go! Hello! Dad! That’s enough overacting Now get out of here Okay Seema – We’ve moved in next door You replaced the drunk?

If anybody asks me about her, If anybody asks me about her, She is very beautiful I’m talking about Prakriti I searched for Nisha after that night I regret that we never met again Binaya probably thinks Prakriti is mine Not his child That must be why he never contacted me I used to think of women differently But the day I saw Nisha at the bookshop My attitude towards them has changed I think I can get more students.
.. Nisha! Abhas is our new neighbor Tell him to put Prakriti down But, daughter… Why did you have to re-enter my life? Do you want that to repeat? I was a laughing-stock to the world And Prakriti? You want the world to laugh at her? Prakriti is my daughter You don’t have to worry about her Nisha Why do you make Prakriti share in your misfortunes? Remember this — It is your duty to give Prakriti a father Nisha never revealed who is Prakriti’s father She never will How could she? Nobody stood by her in her time of need Who do you think is Prakriti’s father? Either god knows, or her mother Taxi! Follow the other taxi Go on! Fast! You must be in a rush Yes, I am in a rush Can you drive faster? Must be about a girl None on your business! No, I’m just saying Do you love her? Please!

I wait here, hoping for her.
.. Sun rays become shy after kissing her Wind touches her and wanders wantonly Sun rays become shy after kissing her Wind touches her and wanders wantonly Did dew fall to her face from tall leaves? Are her lips colored with flower petals? Where is she? I wait here, hoping for her.

Answer me, damn it! Do you like him? Did you enjoy his embrace? tell me – whose daughter is Prakriti? Did you sleep with that bastard? He was mad! He wanted to give his name to somebody else’s daughter He was mad that he wanted to give Prakriti to a worm like you You spend so many years sleeping around Did I say no to the wedding? I was mother and father to Prakriti for two whole years Where were you then? You abandoned us for years Did I complain even once? But, when I became emotional with Abhash for just one moment It hurt you? Did I ever ask you to explain away your nights with Kristine? But when became impotent, incapable of ever having a child You came running to us To claim your rights over my daughter We bowed to your every selfish whim Did you ever wonder if we had expectations from you? I was always yours, if you could have understood this truth before I made a mistake by giving birth to Prakriti The day she learns you are her father She’ll spit on your face Wherever I stepped, it became a mire Wherever I stepped, it became a mire Darkness remained thick over life’s page When my lips tried to smile Happiness left me If there is meaning to life I want to live laughing with you Even if I die today I want to live with you forever If there is meaning to love I want my love to be with you Even if I die today I want to live with you forever I want to laugh with you Dad – I tried hard to not love her But, I can’t help it Nisha isn’t like that Not love her? You’d be mad not to love her Nisha is my feeling.
.. Abhash’s feeling Nisha couldn’t be mine I have lost, I am not lucky She was my first true love But, perhaps that love was never mine Dad – Happy New Year In the morning, I will have gone far from memories of Nisha But, I don’t know where Dad – You will be missed Love you!
