The Kathmandu Post:
Born in Nepal in the 1970’s, Bhuwan Thapaliya was raised and educated in Kathmandu. He studied economics and finance before turning to poetry in his mid twenties.
His writing is imbued with the art and culture of Nepal that he grew up with(http://sahitya.freenepal.com/15eng_poem_bhuwan.htm) but he is eminently qualified as an Oriental and as an Occidental poet, for his poetry truly represents a marriage between the traditions of East and West, and in a way that is immediately appealing and cohesive.
Bhuwan is not just a poet; he is a man with a mission, seeking world peace (http://www.poetsagainstthewar.org/displaypoem.asp?AuthorID=17503). He is a prolific poet and is writing his own Everest, but his writing is not only about statistics. It is about spreading the message of global peace, universal solidarity and love (http://sonnettopoesiavol3n12004.homestead.com/nepal.html).
Bhuwan Thapaliya’s poetry book, “Our Nepal, Our Pride,” was recently published by a publishing house in India (Cyberwit.net, India, ISBN 978-81-8253-115-4) and now it is available for the readers all over the world via Amazon.com:
