China Harayeko Manche by Hari Bansha Acharya

My Review: 4/5
With his popularity, it is hard not to read his book. Hari Bansha Acharya has always been one of my favourite actors of Nepal. He is one of those people that were born to do what they are doing.

Throughout the book, few times my subconscious mind thought 'why did he have to include this?' but immediately I realised that those are the things that is making his book even more enjoyable to read. We read so many gossip columns and interviews about the artists to know about their daily lives and other things such as what exactly happens behind the scenes. Mr Acharya has opened up everything. Just the way it is and the way we want to hear and read.

He has talked about everything: his childhood, family, struggling life to film industry, love story with his beloved wife Mira Acharya to her death, life with second wife Ramila Pathak, friendship with Madan Krishna Shrestha, and their social, political and film work together. This is the story that makes you laugh and cry, teaches you about history and politics, gossips about the stars,  and at the same time, tells you the life story of everyone's favourite artist: Hari Bansha Acharya.

You can see from the book that he didn't want to hide anything but just tell us his story as it happened. Obviously, we have to keep in mind that he is not a book writer but he has done pretty good job. Besides his movies and dramas and telefilms, this is one gift of Mr Acharya to his well wishers that people will remember forever.
