KATHMANDU: The hall of Moksha Restaurant and Bar, Jhamsikhel was filled with audience and some of them were wiping tears when veteran actor/comedian Hari Bansha Acharya was telling about the ups and downs of his life amidst a programme organised for the launch of his autobiography Cheena Harayeko Manche. Held on the second death anniversary of his beloved wife Meera Acharya, Cartoonist Durga Baral (Vatsyayan) launched the book in a new style by displaying a cartoon character designed by Baral on April 28. This cartoon character is trying to depict the replica of Acharya himself who is writing his own fate as his detailed horoscope was lost years ago.
Written in a simple language this book is about Acharya’s life. It is about the hardships that he faced during his life time. The book deals with the unexpected tragic events that has come in Acharya’s life one after the other. He explains about his relationship with his late wife and his current wife Ramila Pathak. The book also includes light moments of how Acharya disliked his own name and had a strong urge to change it.
Speaking about the book Acharya shared, “This book is full of tension as I always lived a tension filled life. I couldn’t keep Meera’s physical presence with me but I have tried to keep her alive through this book.”
The limited edition of the book was also launched during the programme. It was informed that 90 per cent of the amount from these 2,000 copies will be given to Meera Care Centre, Sankhu Kavre which is working for the welfare of orphans.
