A Journey to the Self Author:Luna Shrestha Thakur
"This is the fascinating and moving story of a young Nepali woman seeking answers to life. She was confused by the hypocrisy and corruption she found in the culture she grew up in. There was discrimination in social and economic status, discrimination against women. She wanted to live as she imagined others lived outside her narrow culture, but she could not do so in her own country. So she decided to travel abroad and find the perfect place of her imagination. On her travels she meets Rajesh, Payal, Helen, Edith and Andrea, all of whom have special and remarkable stories and experiences to relate. Through them she comes to realise that no person or place is perfect, and she herself is the only one who can find the way to a good and happy life. In A Journey to the Self she travels from pain to joy, from anxiety to confidence, from anger to live, and finds peace and happiness."

I got your book a week ago but hadn't really gotten myself to read it. It was when I met Mona Aditya on Thursday that I actually got about reading it. I was wondering whether or not the book was a fiction, and was immensely happy to know that it wasnt: That it was actually somebody's story. Enthusiastically, I got to reading. The simplicity with which you've narrated your stories and the innocence in your language didn't fail to touch me. I was truly, deeply moved. Although, being a literature student myself, I kept critically analyzing the sentence structures and even rewrote some of your sentences inside my head, I think your book achieves its objective: It inspires us all. And I appreciate the fact that you've cared to write to for all those Nepalese whose First Language is not English.
Also, after reading the book I had this sudden urge to come give you a tight Hug, to know you in person, to talk to you, to learn from your experiences, and to tell you in person how highly I think of you. I'm sure you've heard this from so many people already, but this comes from the deepest of deep corner of my heart and I really really mean it. I hope to meet you in person, L. You have inspired me to write a book myself! Chummas to you, AP :)
