Shruti Sambeg : Radha [Review & Download]

Radha by Krishna Dharabasi is wonderful novel based on traditional era of Lord Krishna and Radha. The traditional plot of the story makes the readers/listeners feel that Dharabasi is narrating us the same old story of love of Radha and Krishna. However , the story based on the traditional plot it portrays the modern era in a dramatic way such that it speaks of so many hidden things that we will be amazed while ending it up.Radha and Krishna are the eternal lovers. Lord Krishna and Radha are together since childhood. But in teenage they are separated (as in the traditional story) and Lord Krishna has to go away leaving Vindraban for fulfilling the task for which he has taken birth.This brings tragedy to Radha and all the people in Vindraban.Radha waits for Krishna to arrive but he seldom does. She is stubborn to go meet Krishna. Later she sets out as a Yogini in a long voyage to search self, leaving her parents. She is accompanied by her friend Bisakha everywhere she went.Radha faces a…

एक रातको कथा

भोलिपल्ट घर फर्कने रात थियो । सम्पूर्ण सामानहरु प्याक गरिसकेपनि केहि छुटेछकी भनि सोच्न बसेको थिएँ । कतैबाट तिरिरि बाँसुरीको धुन सुन्दा मनै आनन्दित भयो । "ए, निदाइस क्या हो ? फोन बजिरहेछ", रुममेटले चिच्यायो । कल रिसिभ गरेँ, निद्राकै झोकँमा, "हेलो, सुनन आज म नेपाल बाहिर जाँदैछु, यस अघि पनि कल गर्न पाइन । म विस्तारमा पछि कल गरौँला", एउटा हतारिएको खवर सुने । "ए ....., शुभयात्रा है", भने तर म अझै पनि निद्रामै थिए । वास्तवमा उनिलाई मैंले ठम्याउनै सकिन, सायद निद्रामा भएरै होला, न त नाम नै सोध्न भ्याँए आफ्ना सबै परिचित व्यक्तिहरुलाई याद गर्दा पनि त्यो आवाज ठम्याउन सकिन । अब मात्र मैले प्रतिक्षा गर्नुपर्नेछ, उनको दोस्रो कलको ।

अर्को विहानै आफ्नो वाटो लागिसकेको थिएँ । यात्राका दौरानमा मेरो मन सधैं मेरो जन्मथलो पुगिरहेको हुन्थ्यो । जुन माटोमा म जन्मे, जहाँ हुर्केँ, मेरो वात्सल्य , बालसखा सबै झल्झल्ती याद आउन थाले । मलाई घर छिटो पुग्नु छ, किनभने मेरो प्रतिक्षामा कसैले धेरै महिना विताएको छ । त्यही बेला मैले लेख्न थालेँ :
“मेरो आउने वाटो हेरी, चौतारीमा कुर्छे होली,
मेरो…
