About Book
Hailed as ‘a Buddhist Chekhov’ by the San Franciso Chronicle, Samrat Upadhyay’s writing has won high praise from stalwarts like Amitav Ghosh and Suketu Mehta. Upadhyay’s new novel, Buddha’s Orphans, uses Nepal’s political upheavals of the past century as a backdrop to the story of an orphan boy, Raja, and the girl he is fated to love, Nilu, a daughter of privilege. Their love story scandalises both families and takes readers through time and across the globe, through the loss of and search for children, and through several generations, hinting that perhaps old bends can, in fact, be righted in future branches of anfamily tree.
