Published by Janamat Prakashan, Santosh Lamichhane’s Porridge Eaters and Gruel Drinkers: A Nepali Poetry Collection is a wonderful anthology.
The book was launched in late September amidst a poetry function with much fanfare by the writer’s mother Bhawani Lamichhane and singer Hiranya Bhojpure. At the book launch, there was also children’s poetry competition and many amazing poems were recited at the stage.
Most of the poems in Porridge Eaters and Gruel Drinkers are in Nepali and some are written in English. The book costs Rs. 200 and can be found at Janamat Prakashan, Kavre and few book stores in Kathmandu. The book can also be ordered on Amazon for $9.99.
