  • This book is as the title proclaims the work of an author with a firm sense of purpose, one that has been shaped within the social context of her own native Himalayan kingdom. It is a study rich in the interplay between hard won convictions and the local conditions under which they have been formed and which they in turn have sought to reform. The account begins in the waning years of the autocratic Rana period, when even owning a radio was a punishable offence. Early perseverance to obtain a good education in the end paid off and catapulted her to a position of responsibility unprecedented at the time for someone of her background and sex, the post of chief librarian of the newly established Tribhuvan university central library. It offers rewarding insights for anyone wishing to learn what life in Nepal is really like and what it means role not to simply accept one of lot but to create a personal vision of life and to make life conform to that call of vision.
