just because you are a foreigner.....

The incident took place when I was driving by Gwarko Chok. One Maruti gypsy was ahead of me. The traffic police signalled our side to stop and signaled the other side to move ahead. A motorcycle moved ahead. But to my horror, even after seing it, the gypsy moved ahead and crushed the front wheels of the motorcycle. The one driving and the pillion rider fell to the ground. A foreigner was driving the gypsy and instead of coming out to find what damage he had caused, without rolling down the window, he was shouting from inside. When the bike riders asked him what he was trying to do, he rolled the window down and started shouting,
"I do not understand Nepali."
I could not bear it and intervened,
"Do you understand English?"
He said yes.
I was so angry that I told him on his face then,
"You are a m....fu.....er. What the hell were you trying to do crushing the bike after the traffic cop asked you to stop?"
He was speechless. I felt bad afterwards for using the word but maybe some foreigners believe that they are free to do anything in Nepal.

bright dawn

Woke up with lot of energy and enthusiasm for life this morning. Although it is still dark outside, I feel that the sun has already come up and shining with its warmth. This is indeed a lovely morning. I was feeling low for some time. Suddenly it feels that some one has waved a magic band and brought me back to my old positive and energetic form. I have to keep up the mood and contribute for that. Good morning braZesh.

Reasons Unknown

Although my creative writing has gained momentum in recent times, I still have not been able to wrap up the draft of my novel. I don't know the exact reason but something is distracting me. I have been keeping up with my regular column in Nepal weekly and regularly writing for Kantipur and Nagarik. Yet, when it comes to the completion of my novel, it's stuck where it was. Only a small portion is remaining and I have not been able to write it.

जीएस्, जलोटा र जुगलबन्दी

२०६८ आश्विन १४ कान्तिपुरको कोसेलीमा प्रकाशित मेरो संस्मरण

जीएस श्रीवास्तव

म बाघको खोरअघि उभिएको थिएँ । त्यहाँसम्म आइपुगेको पाँचदस मिनेट भइसकेको थियो तर भित्र छिर्ने आँट मलाई आइरहेको थिएन । ढोकामा टिलिक्क टल्केको पित्तलको पातोमा सुन्दर अक्षरले चहकिलो कालो रंगले कुँदिएको थियो, 'एक्ज्युकेटिभ डाइरेक्टर' । त्यो ढोका नबिल बैंकको कार्यकारी अधिकृत जीएस श्रीवास्तवको भव्य कार्यकक्षको थियो ।

कुरो ४५-४६ सालताकाको हो । त्यति बेला आईए को नतिजा कुर्दाकुर्दै म नबिल बैंकको जागिर खान थालेको थिएँ । नेपालमा खुलेको पहिलो अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय संयुक्त लगानीको नबिलमा जागिर खान पाउनु भनेको बलियो पुर्पुरोको द्योतक मानिन्थ्यो । नबिलमा हामीले खाने तलब जति हुन्थ्यो, बाहिर हल्ला त्यसको तेब्बर चौबर थियो । हामी पनि होइन भन्दैनथ्यौं । सफा र आकर्षक अफिस, बीचबीचमा बेलायती शैलीमा कुम उचाल्दै नेपाली बोल्दा पनि ७५ प्रतिशत अंग्रेजी मिसाउने टाई लगाएका कर्मचारीहरूका कारण नबिलको रबाफै बेग्लै थियो ।

७९२ किलोहर्ज........

नरुले 'ताल्ची मव्या' भन्नुअघि नै म कराएँ । उसको गुच्चा अलि खाल्डोमा परेको थियो । अब उसले त्यो गुच्चालाई माथि राम्ररी देखिने गरी राखिदिनुपर्ने भयो । मेरो गुच्चाले उसको गुच्चालाई ढें गरेको -उसको भन्दा मेरो गुच्चा पर पुगेको) हुनाले उसको गुच्चालाई उडाउने पहिलो मौका मैले पाएको थिएँ । एघार बाह्र वर्ष पुगिसकेका हामी 'ठूला' भइसकेकाहरू ठूलै प्रकारको बाजी खेल्थ्यौं । मैले एक आँखा चिम्लेर

आफ्नो सिकारलाई ताकें । गुच्चा हान्ने मेरो माझी औंला खुम्चिएर पेस्तोलको टि्रगर जस्तो बनिसकेको थियो । ब्रुस लीले मुक्का हान्नुअघि सारा शरीरको शक्ति मुठ्ठीमा सारेर ल्याउँछ भन्ने सुनेको मैले पनि आफ्नो खुम्रे कीरोझैं घुमि्रएको औंलामा शक्ति सञ्चय गरें ।

छेवैमा काकाको घरमा ठूलो स्वरमा बजिरहेको रेडियोमा एउटा धुन बज्न सुरु भयो । 'रूपक' भनिने रेडियो नाटक सुरु हुन लागेको संकेत थियो त्यो धुन । 'पछि खेलौंला है, नाटक आउन लाग्यो ।'

नयाँ वर्ष

आयो, आयो भन्दाभन्दै आयो र गयो नयाँ वर्षको साँझ पनि । के के न होला, केही त होला, केही न केही त कस्सो नहोला भन्दाभन्दै केही पनि नभै आयो र गयो नयाँ वर्षको साँझ पनि ।
