"I really enjoyed reading From Bandipur and Back (Ghumiphiri Bandipur), by my old friend Chij Kumar Shrestha, and happy to be included in the English translation. There is a special reason for my pleasure. Chij and I are almost the same age and have had many of the same experiences.
This book presents the story of how a young man educated in a village school overcame countless obstacles as a result of his diligence, hard work and honesty, rising to a position of great public success in a city like Kathmandu. At the same time, this book serves as an inspiration for today's youth and as an astute analysis of Nepal's development, education system, and bureaucracy.
