“I saw and met the people suffering from pain in the aftermath of the wars. I found their mental status deviated”, he said, adding, “Huge amount of money is being spent in weapons, violence and conflicts in the globe. I realized that the world would be different if such investments were mobilized for development. I went to the villages and brought their stories in the novel”.
He said it took five years to complete the novel. His previous novel ‘Ailani’ had also gained popularity. He wrote this novel in 2017 AD.
Ojha who did his secondary education from Tikapur also obtained Master’s degree in Management from Kathmandu.
