|Your favourite genre||:||There isn’t any genre to include as my favourite. I usually read any kind of books which I think should be read by a good reader. However, I mostly prefer non-fictional stories.
|Books you’re reading||:||I’ve recently finished reading ‘Two by Two’ and ‘The Longest Ride’ by Nicholas Sparks.
|Books that inspired you||:||‘The Kite Runner’ by Khaled Hosseini and ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hillare.
|Books you recommend others to read||:||I recommend non-fictional books to readers and writers because they contain natural words and relatable feelings.
|Problems Nepali writers face||:||Nepali writers are confident to write a story, but they don’t get ideas or points to write. Besides, there are only few publishing houses in the country. On the other hand, number of readers is less and most of them are selective. Thus, Nepali writers fear in publishing their books in large quantity and selling it in the market.|
