Parijat: शिरिषको फूल (Blue Mimosa)
Is the translation aptly done and the charm of the original nepali narrative not lost in translation process? There is an ethereal feel to the book, the same as with the original. And I think everything else was handled beautifully.
See all 3 questions about Blue Mimosa…. Lists with This Book. Feb 12, Lucy rated it it was ok. I picked up the translated version of this book in an amazing bookshop in Kathmandu as I was keen to read something from a native author.
The story is a tragic one and unfortunately one perhaps partly due to something being lost in translation that I did not particularly enjoy. I did not ‘connect’ with any of the characters and even although it yb a short story it became a bit of a chore to finish.
Dec 20, Satyam Twanabasu rated it it was amazing. I read the novel quite long time ago, probably some 13 years ago, during my high-school mimowa I was literally blown away that time!
May be I was too young for such a great piece of fiction, but every sentence in this novel are so well constructed and so powerful! Although Parijat being a female writer, she crafted the novel so perfectly from the perspective of a middle aged Gorkha vetaran who is suffered by the middle age crisis chiefly sex.
The whole atmosphere of Kathmandu during 70s is quite I read the novel quite long time ago, probably some 13 years ago, during my high-school days! The whole atmosphere of Kathmandu during 70s is quite well captured.
This novel is so brilliant and powerful that it will leave you with so many questions about your life, your emptiness, crisis and your belonging. Even it is rumored that this novel contains the superego of Parijat herself and that’s the reason the brilliancy of this novel. In nutshell, it is a meaningful story about the meaninglessness emptiness of human life! Apr 20, Prayush Khadka rated it it was amazing. English translation doesn’t have the same beauty and prose as that of its Nepali counterpart.
You literally fall in love with the writing. You feel something is missing and lost in translation. Oct 07, Sasank Chapagain rated it it was amazing. Probably one of the best book i Nepali literature May 10, Pragyan Thapa rated it it was ok. The whole story revolves around his feelings towards Bari and his aweful past as a Gurkha at war. Suyog’s wartime is described later on in the book which shows how he always got “easy-girls” to quench physical thirst but never loved them.
As he falls for the less attractive Bari he seems to be baffled by the fact he loves her for her soul not for her body. Thus the book is the tragic narrative of Suyog. All in all it is a sad love story.
Redundant at times and frustratingly boring. I read the 99 pages English version of the book. Nothing wrong with the language but the feelings are banal and isn’t able to engross you. The movie based on the book is also releasing this year directed by some Japanese guy. Mar 01, Ramhari rated it it was amazing. Dec 10, Priyanka rated it it was ok.
I was like, 13 years old when I happened to cross paths with parjat book because I wasn’t a reader at all and our teacher couldn’t stop raving about it, even so none of my classmates found the urge in pagijat to actually read it. I read it on the native language since I’m from the country, and truthfully speaking, I wasn’t of the correct age to read it, like my understandings and other stuff that you have to have sharpened to appreciate a book wasn’t developed in me.
I don’t even remember its plot or anything now.
Apr 28, Sunira Paudel rated it really liked it. I cannot wait to read more of her writings. This book has left me with many emotions and one question “Did sakambari love suyogbir, too?

Its my all time favorite book. Jan 15, AD rated it it was amazing Shelves: No words to describe this Novel. Sep 16, Bhim Raj rated it it was amazing.
Word of mine will not be able to describe beauty of ‘ sakambari’. One of the best fiction I have ever read. The story delves into the delicacy of life and gives a totally different perspective to look at it. I was mijosa much dragged into the story that I never wanted it to end; but it did and did it superbly.
A very short read but have potential to change you. Parijat is an exceptionally great writer. I would highly recommend this book. Feb 22, Kshitiz Puri rated it it was amazing.
I got to read this book when i was at a very young age. I was so fascinated miomsa what Parijat wrote, if I ever consider some Nepalese writers to be of worldclass it has to be her, barring Laxmi pd, Devkota.

Jan 18, Pradeep Prasai nepali added it. Read this book in Nepali n English version. I felt Nepali version is reacher than English. This novel, in my opinion is quite successful in depicting the existentialism stream of literature.
This young creation in neplease literature is a milestone in this philosophy. I simply praise the writer in her awareness in writing the philosophy in neplease version. Nov 07, Parva Chhantyal rated it liked it Shelves: It’s one of the most popular Nepalese books but I think I messed up by choosing to read it in English. I kind of felt like everything was lost in translation. So, I ended up saying ‘it’s ok’.
I suggest all Nepalese to read it in Nepali. Aug 20, Avijeet Das rated it it was amazing. This is an amazing story written with a lot of sensitivity and tenderness. Kudos to the writer for penning a masterpiece. The thoughts of the writer are illuminating and make you think deeply about different moments of life. Mar 12, Nishant Timilsina is currently reading it Shelves: Parijat is considered the greatest Women writer of Nepal. This book was voluntarily translated in English and is internationally acclaimed.
Her name Parijat in Nepali language means “the blue mimosa”, a purplish blue spring flower that grew in trees and covered the sidewalks of Kathmandu city.
