Interview by Savina Xavier
A phenomenal writer, a successful woman and a fountain of wisdom! Nepal’s Nilam Karki Niharika is a name that represents sheer talent and honesty!
Along with all the qualities and characteristics that a woman encompasses, Nilam wears the quality of empathy on her sleeve. This is the ‘one’ quality that has given voice to the plight of hundreds of Nepali women.
Being a writer, she chooses to tell tales that touch her and that speak of the hardships of the women she shares her community with.
Not proud, but humbled by her recent success on winning the Madan Puraskar, she says that there is hope for Nepali writers like her. She believes that more reading will make more writers! Because, what they read is what will inspire them. Elaborating on the challenges faced by women she says, it is difficult to juggle between managing different professions/roles and maintaining devotion to writing.
