  REVIEW A treasure chest of eleven gems  
  BY NITYA PANDEY  
 
There are a few books that are like your childhood mates. You spend the most memorable of moments with them. Then slowly, with time and age, you fall apart. And one fine evening, while you are busy dusting your bookshelf, you stumble onto them. You flip through the pages and read a few titles. And just like that, within a snap of your fingers, you reconnect.

‘Naso’ is one such book that remains unscathed by the blows of time. It is equally alluring to all generations of readers, regardless of whether you are a first timer or a repeater. This collection of eleven short stories by Guru Prasad Mainali tugs at your heart and touches your soul with its originality, honesty and simplicity. These pages bring to life Nepal’s historical past with its bittersweet moments of joys and sorrows.
