Ekai Kawaguchi: The Trespassing Insider Author:Abhi Subedi
One hundred years have passed since Ekai Kawaguchi left his country to explore a world that he did not know much about. From the study of materials, interviews with people and observation of his collections, it becomes evident that he was a very remarkable monk, a humanist and poet who deserves to be studied both by what he called "his fellow countrymen" as well as by people from outside. His writings and above all, his messages have assumed greater significance today than ever before.
Travel or exploration was an important Western metaphor of narrative structure. The Nepali exposure to these tropes has come through Western norms via the English literary studies in our part of the world. These norms of cultural studies and perspectives have been canonized in literature departments that have remained outside the domains of the native cultural influences.
