This book was published by Sanjha prakashan, in B. This story is basically about a person named Suyog, who was a former soldier in the British-Gurkha Army and had fought in the Second World War ; he had retired after the war was over and now maintained his living by the pension he got.
In the very beginning of the story, Suyog mentions of a friend he made, Shiva raj, and how he was visiting his house for the first time and of the scenes he saw there. Shiva raj is a man whose life is full of responsibilities, he has at home three unmarried sister and their studies to support. They both are later found out to be two alcoholics who have happened to meet in a bar. She has a totally different perception on life and in many cases stands in a total opposition to Suyog.
She constantly makes fun of Suyog, which always keeps her image on his mind. He had started to love Sakambari and to feel the restriction within him to not be able to tell Sakambari the truth about his feelings made him reminisce about some old memories.
Suyog finally tries to confess his feelings to Sakambari but in chaos kisses her. He feels guilty and ashamed of what he had done but he is a coward to not ever face Sakambari again. At the end phase of the novel, Suyog is left guilty as he finally realizes that his mistakes can ruin lives in a way he never even thought it would.
Suyog was a character who was always in a conflict with himself. His disbelief existed because he was a coward who was afraid of the greater truths that existed, is how I perceived him. He was afraid that all the things he believes is true might be falsified by the truths that already exists, and controlled by a greater power. Also, he is someone who is one way or another running away from life.
He neither wants to face pleasure nor pain but yet complains about the loneliness present in his life. He is a man of mystery as he never confesses his feelings to the person directly, he always has something up his sleeve but never lets any other man know no matter how drunk, emotional or aggressive he gets.
We also come to know that he never wanted to be in the Army, he is ashamed to be called a soldier and when he thinks of the memories in the troops all he remembers is the experience of him having physical contact with women. Once out of the troop he still has the same perception until he meets Sakambari. This novel also shows, how typical a Nepali man perceives a woman to be, and their feeling about their wife.
In this novel the feelings of a lonely person is shown very accurately, the feeling that they hate their loneliness yet hate to talk to others about it in case they make fun of their situation. While reading this novel we can exactly portray the scenery as it has been beautifully described buy the writer. The feelings of a alcoholic ex- soldier and his reasons to visit the bar every passing day is shown here.
Its length was accurate neither too long, nor very short. Till the very end page I was as enthusiastic as I was when I read the first page. By the end of the novel I still had many unanswered questions. Conclusion: The story told in this particular book in a way touched me. He is drowned by sins; he is a coward to accept his faults as he knows he has to again correct it.
Also, the heroine of this story teaches us that being different is something special, something people will admire about you and that the change starts with you.
She is an example of a strong woman, who has her own dignity, self-respect and a sense of purity in her. To compete with men like Suyog and be able to stand in the same level as them, women must learn to be like Sakambari.
Its ending is dissatisfactory as I still had lots of expectations, many questions that still remained unanswered but overall the feel that the story tries to present is great. Share this:.

Shirish Ko Phool by Parijat
Written by Bishnu Kumari Waiba, known popularly with her pseudonym Parijat, the novel does not have any political grounds and is not influenced by politics in anyway. Although the book is only sixty pages long, it is capable of leaving a powerful impact on the readers. The novel sings of pain and the bitter irony presented in the book will remain with the readers for a longer time. The characters to which people can relate themselves and also being a book with a heart are its major strength. The bitter and sad narrative and its expedition into the deepest thoughts of the main character having a universal character is what set the book apart from others. Shirish ko Phool revolves around the context of mid-life crisis in the life of the narrator, Suyog Bir Singh who is also a former World War soldier. Living an unremarkable and uncelebrated life in vacuum sunya , he has no one to call his family or friends, which is why he pours all of his bitterness into alcohol.
