Product Description

B.P. Koirala’s Atmabrittanta: Late Life Recollections
Translated by Kanak Mani Dixit
2001, pp. xvii+304
ISBN 99933 13 08 4

Writer, thinker, statesman and humanitarian, B.P. Koirala was a Nepali to be proud of. He fought for Indian independence and then turned homeward to fight the Rana regime. As the towering figure of the post-Rana era, he gave momentum to Nepal’s entry into modern times. His many years of imprisonment (in British India and, later, in a Nepal ruled by the king) and exile gave BP’s career the poignancy of unfulfilled expectations. Even as he has been elevated to the status of political icon, BP’s life and aspirations are little understood. Here, at last, in his own words as translated into English, is what BP had to say–spoken with clarity and conviction into a microphone in his dying days.

Kanak Mani Dixit has edited Himal magazine (both its earlier ‘Himalayan’ incarnation and the present South Asian version) since 1987. Apart from being the publisher of the first Nepali-language newsmagazine, Himal Khabarpatrika, he is also well known as the author of The Adventures of a Nepali Frog. He is a translator of BP Koirala’s Atmabrittanta: Late Life Recollections
