    There’s plenty of room to critiue BP Koirala’s Sumnima for the deterministic dichotomy it imposes upon its narrative of boy meets girl wherein the indigenous Kirats self identify with the base earth and Brahmin priests are of the air But in its brave pairing of the star crossed Sumnima and Somdatta and its examination of the conseuences of idealizing either nature or culture it’s much than just a wrenching tale of

    This book demonstrates the class and dexterity of one of the rarest Nepali literary genius Human desires and physical needs when placed under restrictions will all but help ruin one as a person He can never love or live truly Sumnima and Somdutta kept running in the same circle all their life never meeting each other The education that was supposed to be Somdutta's ladder to salvation the meditation soul searching kept him from the real l

    not much of my kind of story I find BPK's work a little exaggerated on sex and life I would have liked the story if it was about the cultural diversions and how love fails and finds itself rather than the extended distraction on the nudity

Surmount carnal desires is not possible for an ordinary mortal and the pleasures of the flesh have a place in life The Brahmin boy is serious about his spiritual goals but succumbs to the charms of a lovely girl Amazing presentation of sexual tention The ease in Kirats and perhaps unnecessary complex choice of life among Brahmans are so well presented Nai malai kapada lagauna laj lagcha is an amazing imagination of the writer However I think the story is dragged and obscure towards the end Worth reading

Sumnima a famous Nepali novel by B P Koirala a former Prime Minister of Nepal is about the painful complications that arise in a man woman relationship The story is about the powerful attraction that exists betwee A powerful portrayal of what clash between physical needs and religious principles does to pious Brahmins Brahmins do belong to earth after all like Kiratis like all other human beings To transcend oneself above mankind is to withdraw from simple pleasures of life The attainment of which can later sabotage the very purpose of their lives The most intriguing and heart wrenching character in this book for me was Puloma I have read most part of the book being partial to her and sympathised with her enduring Highly recommended

N a Brahmin boy and an ordinary girl It deals with the conflict within the boy who also wishes to pursue spiritual salvation but is torn between his desire for this woman and his urge for spiritual emancipation To This book demonstrates the class and dexterity of one of the rarest Nepali literary genius Human desires and physical needs when placed under restrictions will all but help ruin one as a person He can never love or live truly Sumnima and Somdutta kept running in the same circle all their life never meeting each other The education that was supposed to be Somdutta s ladder to salvation the meditation soul searching kept him from the real luminese They were pulling him away from the actual life and the knowledge created further obstacles in his uest for salvation Halfway through this masterpiece I d realized that they weren t coming together That they d rather die their whole life apart than live as a pair What still haunts the people in our community is that the false lines drawn by our religion caste and class between people After years of fight protests and legal battles nothing has changed As these two died apart many are dying or putting their lives at stake just because their lover was born of some caste else The hopeful ending is yet to come to life in a real time scenario BP Koirala was always a driven and visionary personality who never feared to bring suppressed and subdued emotions into his works He definitely stands out as a writer when it comes to let his pen blabber exceptionally well about the psychological sexual drive mental anxieties of a human Somdutta and Sumnima couldn t win the fight because the war was solely against themselves the whole time Puloma yet another victim to the flawed values and rationales and faulty boundaries
