The Gurkhas DaughterAhhhh The last story ust had me "I mean It was so beautifully written My rating for the book 8410The extra6 for the last "mean It was so beautifully written My rating for the book 8410The extra6 for the last to be honest Overall it "s a beautiful book really yes that s "a beautiful book really Yes that s one word I m repeating and that s the one can use for these anecdotes as well as the simple emotion they create in you For someone who s lived in the North East I can only imagine how close to home the reader must ve felt while reading the book It s really a short one and the writing style is almost melodious with the words being sung by the winds of the hills with the rhythm of these simple human characters This book was uite hyped about in Nepal so I picked it on my recent trip This is a collection of short stories of Nepali diaspora living in Nepal Kalimpong Darjeeling Gangtok Bhutan and USA This might be an interesting book for someone who wants to know about the Nepali culture Stories that can happen to any Nepali The sad stories of displaced Nepali Bhutanese An immigrant student s dilemma living and working in NYC The caste system that we still have in our society The author has done a good ob of portraying the social stigma embedded in Nepali culture through these eight short stories The writing is pretty brilliant albeit it s the author s first book I give it a 35 not ev This is a truly fascinating collection of short stories told by Prajwal Parajuly I love short stories I love how with short stories you always have time to read the whole story rather than having to put a book down to cook the dinner or sleep and so it can sometimes be hard to find your place again and get back into it when returning to a long story However with short stories you can happily read a complete story go to make the dinner and then return to read the next one It s also good for readers who may feel a bit put off or intimidated by the thought of over 300 pages to a book so short stories are great because they come in easier manageable lengthsI really enjoyed these stories Prajwal s writing is so realistic that whilst reading I could picture every scene clearly in my mind it almost felt as if I were there watching everything unfold in front of meThe characters are brilliantly written Even though these are short stories Prajwal managed to develop the characters well enough in such a short space of time that I really felt as though I knew them Their personalities and importantly their emotions shone out of the pages I felt I got a real insight into them and everything happening around them it was compelling to read unlike anything I ve ever read before These short stories provided a fascinating look into a world I admit I know little about and this made me want to read One thing I did like about the short stories was that at the start of each story a map is provided showing the location that the particular story is set in I found this really interesting and it added something extra to the storiesThe Gurkha s Daughter stories is the best set of short stories I have read in a long while A really lovely collection of short stories about Nepalese people set in and around Northern India and Nepal Prajwal Parajuly has the capacity to create characters of great resilience and verve and he frames vivid little worlds in each taleAmong my favourites were No Land is Her Land about a displaced and disjointed family attempting to create a picture perfect family for their US visas the title story The Gurkha s Daughter about two young friends who play act the conversations and attitudes of their fathers and The Immigrants the very moving story of a successful young Nepalese man living in New York who arranges for a young Nepalese woman of a
"Lower Social Status To Come "
social status to come cook for him in exchange for English lessons not realising that she has something to teach him The Gurkha s Daughter can be dubbed as a collection of modern day anecdotes adeptly woven together Anecdotes because the plot of all the eight stories cautiously depict the feelings of people from different walks of life and region They seem realistic in approach rather than a work of imagination The maps specified at the begin of each story gives the readers a clear cut idea about its location in the Nepal India region The stories may however look bland at the first reading something lacking in terms of hue and richness. A disfigured servant girl plans to flee Nepal; a Kalimpong shopkeeper faces an impossible dilemma; a Hindu religious festival in Darjeeling brings with it a sacrifice; a Nepali Bhutanese refugee pins her hopes on the West; a Gurkha's daughte. ,
Of poetic flavor They may seem plot less and devoid of proper punch in terms of their closure But if one sits to contemplate the stories the symbolism and thematic value increasingly seeps in filling the readers with a certain kind of gratification The debut author Prajwal Parajauly has unleashed the psychological turmoil despair disillusionment dreams hope and the theme of Diaspora and uest for identity in a very susceptible and poignant "Manner The Cleft Is About The Distance Between Relationships And "The Cleft is about the distance between relationships and one always sees the grass greener on the other side of the fence It is not only a Carrying the Greeks Heir journey in the literal sense from Kathmandu to Birtamod but aourney into self realization It is about bridging the gap between relationships that have gone sour A Father s Journey chronicles a beautiful relation between the father and daughter the changes that they go through the growing distance the comfort they find in each other s presence and their repartee that fills the heart with warmth and love Passing fancy wonderfully depicts the grievances of the and love Passing fancy wonderfully depicts the grievances of the aged couple deserted by their children in pursuit of higher education At the same time it also talks about the dilemmas of parents who feel protective in wanting them safely wrapped under their wings the doubt and insecurity of being stacked away in old age home Passing fancy is again about the drift in relationships and a sense of belonging Be it the double marginalization of a woman in No Land is Her Land or the hope and desire to get a foothold in a foreign land in The Immigrants this young author has beautifully captured the emotional tides in all aspect The Gurkha s Daughter does have its fair share of loopholes and not every story is as appealing The title story or the one with the Kleptomaniac could have been better in its treatment A story about a Nepali proud of his her ancestry could be something different than the rest After being heralded as the next big thing in South Asia the level of expectations has soared high and this could be detrimental if the book does not meet the same But as the uercus publisher Jon Riley puts The color and intensity of Parajuly s language and the world he peoples his work with make him an astonishingly accomplished young writer The Gurkha s Daughter is certainly not to be missed Let its vividness illuminate the readers Nostalgia of places we have lived hatedgrown into and then left A good book for a writer s first I would rate this 35 stars I m not a big fan of short stories but this was a pleasant collection of stories of Nepalese background What was interesting is the varied tones of the stories depicting Nepali people as a diverse people in their beliefs their social status their dreams and aspirations I was particularly struck by A Father s Journey which broached the subject of caste and the choice of freedom from expectations The Gurkha s Daughter explores the theme of friendship and loyalty The Immigrants is a tale of how two Nepali people of v different status come together by chance in Manhattan and the unlikely bond that forms between them Prajwal Parajuly made it to news when uercus signed him on for a two book deal The hype around him was overwhelming and why not he was after all a student of the Oxford Creative writing course Naturally there was immense pressure when he started working on his first book The Gurkha s Daughter a collection of short stories But the build up wasn t in vain and once you have read the first story the verdict is clear Prajwal is here to stay and will definitely be read The Gurkha s Daughter comprises eight stories chronicling the life and issues of Nepali speaking people around the world Prajwal s geographical canvas is spread across Nepal Sikkim Darjeeling Bhutan and USA One of the key challenges for Indian writers living or studying abroad is to write about their roots and narrate their story in all honesty without trying to romanticize the text In the past decade many South Asian writers have successfully shown this ability and one of the finest storytelling has come from Jhumpa Lahiri Prajwal himself considers Jhumpa as a fine story teller especially of the shorter format The Gurkha s Daughter is a deserving heir apparent to the Jhumpa s Interpreter of Maladies Each story is earthy and revolves around human emoti.
