Book Review:
अभाव (उपन्यास)-पार्वती श्रेष्ठ: उमेरले स्यानी, बिचारले तन्नेरी
SHORTAGE (ABHAB): Young in Age, Matured in Thoughts

Parbati Shrestha and her novel 'Abhav'. Photos: Smita Magar

-Smita Magar

A shy, soft speaking and yet with clear voice of her thoughts Parbati Shrestha, a 14 year old girl is no ordinary girl. At this very young age she has become the creator of a world of beauty in her novel called “Abhab” (The Shortage).

With this first novel, Parbati Shrestha is probably the youngest novelist of Nepal. Born in 2050 in Ramechhap district of Nepal, her writing is full of passion, energy and talent.

While reading “Abhab” it is hard to believe that Parbati Shrestha is a student in the ninth grade. Her creativity is without boundaries. Her work is proof that age doesn’t matter writing a beautiful novel. The passion, imagination, determination and close observation is all that is needed to be a creative person.

In Abhab, Shrestha explores social problems through her characters. The shortage of basic needs, the problem of one family, represents the problem of our society and is the theme of this novel. Creating Sandhya as the protagonist, Shrestha not only talks about problems raised by poverty but also raises issues of gender discrimination and other social problems.

Deepak, Sandesh, Ajay and Mina are the supporting characters with whom you are bound to fall in love in this story. With only 50 pages and the fast movement of events in the plot, readers are likely to finish reading it in one sitting.

There is no doubt that Parbati Shrestha is the writer to watch in her generation.
