Sanjeev’s review of Hari Bansha’s China Harayeko Manchhe

Hari Bhansa Acharya

Few months ago I had made a promise of reading one book every weekend. I succeded on some weekends. I finished reading Summer love, Seto Dharti, yayabar and autobiography of Binod Chaudhary. Though I couldn’t utilize each weekend as I had promised these were the books that I finished on my weekends in past few months. This last weekend I finished “China Harayeko Manchhe” autobiography of Haribansha Acharya and also watched a movie “Yeh Jawani hai diwani”.

The book “China Harayeko manchhe” is all about the success and struggles of a guy from a poor family. Its all about how Haribansha struggled in his acting career and how he travelled from a small role in a play to the todays most liked film actor. Besides this his support in all the big movements of the country is highly appreciable. The partnership of Haribansha with Madankrishna is a real epitome of partnership. Such kind of partnership can be hardly seen these days. Besides the struggles of his reel life the book also gives the struggle of Haribansha in real life. Haribansha has potrayed very well on the sickness of his wife and the best effort he did to get her treated. In overall the book is a true heart touching story of a good father, a good husband, a good actor and a patriotic son.
