राष्ट्रिय खेल

पुराना कागतपत्र खोतल्ने क्रममा अलि वर्स पहिले के मूडमा लेखेको यो कविता फेला पर्यो। सान्दर्भिक जस्तो लागेर यहाँ राख्ने जमर्को गरेको हूँ

शिक्षकले बिद्यार्थीहरूलाई सोधे कक्षामा
भन बाबु हो के हुनुपर्छ
नयाँ नेपालको नयाँ 
के हुनुपर्छ राष्ट्रिय खेल
लूराहरूले भने,
ठीकै छ नि कपर्दी र डण्डीवियो
सूराहरूले भने,
हैन हैन करातें र सितेरियो
खलीहरूले भने, चाप्लुसी र भ्रष्टाचार
अरूले भने अपहरण र बलात्कार
शिक्षकले ओठ लेप्र्याए
मुण्टो दायाँवायाँ हल्लाए
राष्ट्रिय खेल त्यो हो
जुन धेरैले खेल्छन्
जुन धेरै खेल्छन्
बेला भैसक्यो अब नयाँ नेपालमा
पुराना खेलहरूलाई फाल्ने
अबको राष्ट्रिय खेल हो
नेपाल बन्द र सरकार ढाल्ने

भाले बासेको साँझ

जेष्ठ ३, २०६६, नेपाल पत्रिकाको मेरो स्तम्भ "बायाँ फन्को" बाट

घरमा कसैको बिहे भनेको अधिकांश मान्छेका लागि एउटा अत्याशलाग्दो घटना हुने गर्छ । सके पनि नसके पनि अनेकौँ टन्टा गर्नुपर्ने अनि आफ्नो ल्याकतले भ्याए-नभ्याएका कुराहरूमा खर्च गर्नुपर्ने । खर्च गर्न सक्नेहरू त झन् मच्चीमच्ची हाम्रो यो प्रदर्शनमुखी संस्कारको होडबाजीमा सहभागी हुने नै भए । आवश्यकभन्दा अनावश्यक र अनुत्पादक ठाउँहरूमा खन्याउनुपर्ने हाम्रा चलनहरू छन् । मरीमरी जोगाएको पैसाले नपुगे ऋण खोजेर भए पनि डायनोसरजस्ता हराइसकेका साथीभाइ र हत्पति कहिल्यै नभेटिने नातागोता र दाजुभाइहरूलाई बोलाएर खुवाउनुपर्ने हाम्रो बाध्यता हुने गर्छ । भूलवश छुटेकाहरूले त तीन पुस्तासम्म पनि त्यो कुरालाई बिर्सलान् भनेर नचिताए पनि हुन्छ।

SAINO-2 might not happen

Sequal to Saino might not happen.  Had a long chain of 'mailcussion' with Ugyen. He wants to go for a new subject, something vibrant, entertaining, gripping, set against real life like characters, full of emotion, wit and humor. Also had few 'phonecussion' with Prajjwal SJB Rana of eyecore films; the producers.


So I am back to square again, tying to concieve a subject, desperately need a breakthrough right now.

Wishing for a Hat-Trick

Recently I have signed to write a sequal of SAINO, a very popular Nepali movie made way back. In fact I was not even in the industry when it was made. It is considered to be one of the classics made in Nepal. Ugyen, the director of SAINO is directing the sequal too. He was apprehensive whether audience would still relate to a film made almost two decades back. I found that people still remembered and loved the film. So the project has kicked off and I am finding it very challenging to create a gripping story which will take off from where SAINO ended.


I have recently completed writing two movies. One is called "Keti Haraeko Suchana", to be produced by Sunil K Thapa, directed by Daya Ram Dahal with Jharana Thapa in the title role. It is a very unconventional yet commercially safe subject. I had the subject in my mind from a long time. As a writer I am very optimistic about the film. The other one is to be made by Bhuwan KC after super successful "Ma Timi Bina Marihalchhu." It has not been named yet. I believe that Bhuwan KC, being an expert maker and equally good promoter, will pull it off again. Our previous association has been fruitful and we have a chain of hits from "Karodpati,"  to "Nepali Babu."


Coming back to SAINO-2, I know it will be a mentally stimulating project with Ugyen in the director's seat. He can push me to the extent of my creativity and though exhausting, it is always  creatively satisfying experience to work with him. "Nepali Babu" and "Badal Paree" days are still fresh in my mind. Right now, I am keeping my fingers crossed for a Hat-Trick with these three movies.
