    I discovered this book while glancing through a collection of books being sold for a mere dollar at my library. Something about the title instantly grabbed my attention, and I picked it up without even reading the description.

    I finally got around to reading this book as it patiently waited among all the other books I haven't read yet. I finished it in a day as it is not a long read. Yet, it surprises me how quick I read this, considering how much depth and weight this story covers. I appreciated this book for telling an unfortunate reality so honestly and bluntly. There is no ending that justifies the pain, the struggles, and the collapses of the main character's life. And I'm glad there isn't. Really, this story is just a giant reflection of what people across the world from me are going through in real life due to societal rules: I think it is right to honor these people who see their own similar story within these pages and understand their reality.

    The main character's contemplation of fate describes his poor fortune, I think, entirely:
    Fate is made by human arrangement. Fate depends on the good order of society, on cooperation in society, on the chance and facilities you can get in society. Today, if he had had even the smallest opportunity, if his society had cared to understand his plight...would his labors not have borne fruit?

    One of the best books by a Nepali writer I have read. Work of high literary order. In Nepali, titled Basain, this book hinges about a theme of social realism, depicting realities of economic oppression and social injustice in a feudal society in the Nepali hills. It is a heart-aching tale of how the oppressed go on rolling downhill while the oppressor always has the upper hand and keeps on pushing the oppressed because of a faulty order in a feudal society. The prose displays amazing stylishness in Nepali. The English translation by Professor Michael Hutt is equally good, although the subtler nuances of the Nepali language are lost in the translation.

    Interesting look into the daily life of a family in Nepal

    Precisely speaking this is one of the best novel I've ever read. As I've read many Nepali novels but found this book rather realistic, touchy, deserted one indeed. This book imparts the bitter reality about the poor, unfortunate, marginalized, deprived people of Nepal living in far flunked sides, where the socio-economic standard of people is below then expected. Its noting but the poverty, scarcity, exploitation , segregation, social assumption, ethics- etc which made the life style of poor and marginalized people even more hard, merciless. The title basai and the entire story of novel is entirely relevant, pertinent.
    I read the entire novel many times. The first time when i happened to read this book i was overwhelmed knowing about what really happens when the situation becomes worse, adverse and someone has no choice, means and alternatives. The time when i finished up reading and realizing the story it was early in the morning and found myself so heavy hearten.
    Because i was born in a village and spent my childhood with much struggle, obstacles i could easily feel and realized how the main character in the story survives despite having many misfortunes.
    However, his attempts, endeavors are really appreciable, which everyone should learn.
    I really admire, appreciate the efforts of writer trying to reflect the real situation of poor people living in Nepal in novel.

    Interesting as a look into rural Nepalese society, but simplistic and somewhat clichéd storyline.

    The story revolves around a family consisting of Dhané, his wife Maina, and Dhané's sister Jhuma. Dhané is a poor farmer who gets caught up in debt while trying to get ahead by borrowing money/livestock, but then a series of mishaps cause him to lose first what he has borrowed, then his own livestock as payment, then his fields and own crop, and then finally his house. A second storyline revolves around Jhuma and her seduction/rape by an itinerant soldier and subsequent pregnancy.

    The prose is generally utilitarian, but there are certain poetic turns of phrase here and there: Winter strode slowly up like a blemished incarnation, determined to ruin the whole lovely garden that autumn had prepared. The translation for the most part seems to be elegant and seamless enough (although there are a couple phrases here and there which seem too American in character...), and I agreed with Hutt's decision to retain the original Nepali words for familial terms, as it leaves some local feeling for the reader to appreciate. There is not a lot of insight into the characters or their internal lives, and the afterword notes that the novel acts more as a portrait of Nepalese rural society as opposed to a portrait of individual characters. And even though the particulars of the society that Chhetri is writing about here are very far removed from my own experience, in many ways the broad outlines of his story feel very familiar, even worn out. Yes, the rich always prey on and exploit the poor, in ways that are legal and socially sanctioned; yes, the poor can't ever seem to get ahead no matter what they do; yes, women usually get the blame for men's sexual offenses. Jhuma's storyline in particular is frustrating because even though I don't doubt that it's realistic in terms of her becoming outcast and needing another man to 'save' her, I've had enough of reading that type of story. I wish there were more stories where women have the means and opportunities to save themselves, and don't need to wait for a knight in shining armor to swoop in for the rescue.

    Still, overall it's a short, fairly well-written book, and again mostly of interest by providing a glimpse into a foreign community/society.

    This book is like Premchand's Godaan, but on a smaller scale. Mountains Painted With Turmeric is a translation of the Nepali novella Basain and depicts village life in Nepal and the problems of a farmer living in perpetual debt.

    **Spoilers ahead**

    Dhan Bahadur Basnet is trying to meet ends meet and pay off his debts to keep his family of 4 - wife, son and sister Jhuma - happy, but fortune does not favour him. The novel is neither a heroic story nor an utter tragedy. It emphasises the helplessness of human situation and remains firmly rooted in realism, with apparently no poetic justice as the greedy moneylenders get their way in the end and Dhane is driven out of his land. Jhuma's life, which she was all set to end, takes a hopeful turn for the better, but Dhane's keeps going downhill. The novel is fatalistic and seems to emphasise the fruitlessness of fighting against either social norms or fate.

    I was hanging out with the kids at the library, and grabbed this book off the shelf to read while the kids found their books. I was immediately drawn in to the story of a family living in Nepal, who had just about everything that could go wrong happen to them. What's sad is how realistic this story actually is, for these Nepalese people. It's depressing, but not too depressing, I didn't think. Dhane and his wife Maina struggle together to understand God and His role in their fate, which seems to be one misfortune after another. Their marriage is beautiful and touching as they cling to each other through it all. Apparently this book is a classic in Nepal. It was a short, quick read.
