“I was jailed in 2036 for the poem I wrote inspired by Bhutto’s assignation. That just fueled my desire to pen poems on political changes in the country,” shared Sayami.

“This collection of the poems depicts the various political changes country has faced from the revolution of 2036 to revolution of 2063,” added he, who revealed that ‘Timilai Dekheko Samaya’ as being his favorite.

Sayami’s songs ‘Jaha Bhamar Cha’ sung by Ram Bhakta Joshi, ‘Kasaiko Huna Nasakeko Ma’ by Deep Shrestha and ‘Timi Gayau Mero Zindagi Bata’ by Dipak Kharel have been included in the book.
