Sumnima

by B P Koirala

Sumnima ­ a famous Nepali novel by B P Koirala, a former Prime Minister of Nepal ­ is about the painful complications that arise in a man-woman relationship. The story is about the powerful attraction that exists between a Brahmin boy and an ordinary girl. It deals with the conflict within the boy who also wishes to pursue spiritual salvation but is torn between his desire for this woman and his urge for spiritual emancipation. To surmount carnal desires is not possible for an ordinary mortal and the pleasures of the flesh have a place in life. The Brahmin boy is serious about his spiritual goals but succumbs to the charms of a lovely girl.
Sumnima was viewed as highly controversial when it first appeared in Nepal. The author was accused of inciting communal feelings against certain sections of Nepali society. The book was also looked upon as an attempt to project Brahmins as superior beings.As a result, copies of the book were burnt by a particular community to express their anguish against its publication.
"An excellent work by a leading socialist author." -Madhav Ghimire, noted Nepali poet
"I consider Sumnima to be a most powerful work by B P Koirala." -Kamal Mani Dixit, leading Nepali author
