book review of priya sufi

Priya Sufi [प्रिय सुफी]

Priya Sufi [प्रिय सुफी] is a book written by Subin Bhattarai.

"प्रिय लेखक ! युवा हुनु, साहित्यप्रति रूचि हुनु तर सुबिन भट्टराई नपढेको हुनु; यो सम्भव छैन । हामी धेरैको प्रिय लेखकको नाम हो, सुबिन । मैले तपाईंका सबै पुस्तक मन लगाएर पढेकी छु । “वाह”, “आहा”, “ओहो”, “क्या छ”; यस्ता अनेक प्रतिक्रिया दिएकी छु । भेट भएको छैन । भेट्न चाहन्नँ पनि । मेरो प्रिय लेखकले म प्रिय पाठक (तपाईंले यसै भन्नुभएको थियो) लाई प्रिय सुफी पढ्न दिनुभयो । म औधी खुसी भएँ । पढेर म अहिलेसम्म पनि रूँदारूँदै हाँसिरहेकी छु । तपाईंका अघिल्ला पुस्तक पढेका वा नपढेका जोसुकैलाई पनि यो उपन्यास एउटा फरक, अनौठो र मज्जाको लाग्नेछ । तपाईंको कथा, शैली, बिम्बात्मक र प्रतीकात्मक भाषा, प्रेमको अपूर्व फ्रेम; वाह ! कति सुन्दर, कति आकर्षक, कति रोमाञ्चक ! लेख्न जाने हाम्रै नेपाली भाषामा पनि यति मीठो लेख्न सकिँदो रहेछ । अङ्ग्रेजी भाषाका नयाँपुराना धेरै उपन्यास पढेकी मैले तपाईकै कारण नेपाली उपन्यास पढ्न थालेकी हुँ । प्रिय लेखक ! प्रिय सुफी पढेपछि म एउटा अनौठो जोस र जाँगरले उत्ताउलिएकी छु । वाह ! ममा यो कस्तो उत्साह !"  - प्रिय पाठक

The book is published by FinePrint.

BOOK: PRIYA SUFI

AUTHOR: SUBIN BHATTARAI

LANGUAGE: NEPALI

GENRE: FICTION

PUBLISH DATE:    2075 B.S

PUBLICATION: FINE PRINTS

Subin Bhattarai has authored a new novel called Priya Sufi. The novel is about two sisters and is a motivational story. Given the surge in suicide rates, the author attempts to address suicide-related concerns. Subin Bhattarai sought to educate young people about the fundamental meaning of life.

The story begins with travelers leaving Birgunj. The Sumo vehicle comes to a halt on the jungle highway. One of the female passengers requests the Scorpio after the driver complains that the bonnet isn’t working. She meets the family in the Scorpio. She couldn’t cope without speaking, so she began with her family. While spending time with them, she learned that the son attempted suicide since his heart was broken. As a result, the female passenger begins to explain her side of the incident.

Sada, who was pursuing a Master’s degree in microbiology, is the protagonist of the novel. Budhanilkantha is her home. She has a younger sister named Sufi and lives with her parents. Sada is envious of Sufi since she is adored by everyone. She is both gorgeous and intelligent. She used to be praised by everyone. She was able to travel the distance with her sister. Sufi, too, kept her distance, knowing that her sister prefers not to converse.

Sada’s freshman year in college had just begun. She fell in love with Sardak in college. The love was one that could be seen. She hasn’t communicated with him. She tells her friends Barosa, Aditi, and Niyati about it. But one day, while riding her scooter, she notices someone following her and turns around. Sardak is located. They continued to meet and fall in love after this encounter.

Both of their lives are transformed by a single event. What exactly happened, and what is going to happen next? One must read the novel in order to understand this.

The novel keeps the reader’s attention till the very finish. Subin Bhattarai tried something new this time. This book makes an attempt to motivate the reader in some way. The novel is both loving and inspiring, according to Subin Bhattarai. His writing piqued my interest as to what would happen next. The reader will become immersed in the novel, just as I did when reading it.

Subin Bhattarai followed Summer Love with a series of somewhat successful books. Priya Sufi, on the other hand, is not like his predecessors. Readers will encounter relationships with sisters, parents, and lovers in this tale. The fundamental idea of the work is that when individuals have a problem, they don’t have to commit suicide; instead, they must battle it.

If I were to comment on the characters, I would say that they are all fantastic. Sada is an introvert who is completely absorbed in her surroundings. She adores the act of writing. Sufi, her younger sister, makes her jealous. She keeps her distance from her family as a result of this. She is completely enamored by Sardak’s surroundings. Furthermore, she does not tend to forgive and forget the people who have wronged her. She prefers to live in the past to the present.

Sufi, on the other hand, is an outgoing person. She maintains a positive attitude and is constantly cheery. She is the type of person that forgives and forgets others. She prefers to be present in the moment. That is why so many people admire her.

Sardak is a pleasant person. He, too, loves to be present in the moment. He is unconcerned about the future. He prefers not to talk about the past or the future since it takes him away from his present life. That’s why, due of Sada’s current state, he ended their relationship.

Finally, I enjoyed the novel. It made an impression on me. The characters made you love them and loathe them at the same time; why did this character do such things? Subin Bhattarai did a fantastic job with the novel this time. As a result, I would give the book a 4/5 rating.

Between love and despair

Between love and despair

Anish Ghimire

When I began reading ‘Priya Sufi’, I assumed this would be any other cliche love story, but my patience in continuing with the book proved worthwhile as it was more than just a plain narrative. It was a profound exploration of the human experience, captivating themes of love, resilience and the importance of confronting life’s challenges. The novel not only captures the intricate dynamics of familial relationships but also serves as a motivational guide, encouraging readers to seek meaning and purpose in the face of adversity.

The novel’s opening scene, set against the backdrop of a broken-down vehicle on the highway from Birgunj, sets the tone for a chance encounter that becomes the linchpin for the entire narrative. The author, through the eyes of a female passenger compelled to share her story, introduces readers to a family grappling with the aftermath of a suicide attempt. The narrator, well-informed about the details, seizes the moment to share the intricate story of Sada and Sarthak, two college lovebirds whose lives take a dramatic turn.

This unique narrative device adds layers of complexity and depth to the storytelling, drawing readers into the interconnected lives of the characters.

At the heart of the story is Sada, a microbiology master’s student residing in Budhanilkantha. Her strained relationship with her younger sister, Sufi, becomes a captivating subplot, exploring the complexities of sibling dynamics. Subin Bhattarai adeptly portrays the emotional distance created by jealousy, providing a relatable and authentic dimension to the characters.

The introduction of Sarthak and the gradual development of romance with Sada adds emotional depth to the novel. Their comical conversations and mannerisms entertain, but the prolonged opening part, where they struggle to express their love, risks becoming monotonous. My initial assumption of this being just another love story was almost correct until it wasn't.

Bhattarai’s writing style is gripping and enticing. From start to finish, the reader embarks on an emotional journey. The ease of words coupled with a firm expression of emotions makes the read truly worthwhile. Additionally, the nuanced portrayal of characters allows readers to be active participants in their lives, not just passive observers.

The love story between Sada and Sarthak unfolds smoothly, providing comfort to both until an illness disrupts their lives. This significant event, wrapped in suspense, creates tension, driving the narrative forward. Bhattarai’s skillful pacing keeps readers engaged and eager to uncover the unfolding mysteries.

Sada’s future appears bleak as she battles illness, and Sarthak, unable to be her constant caretaker, gradually withdraws support, leaving Sada emotionally shattered. This sudden shift in their relationship becomes a turning point, thrusting Sada into emotional turmoil and physical vulnerability.

As their connection cools, Sada’s sister, Sufi, steps in as a surprising source of support despite their strained history. The pressures of society and gossip from neighbours intensify Sada’s struggles, pushing her to contemplate suicide as an escape from her perceived burdensome existence.

Beyond its intricate narrative, 'Priya Sufi' distinguishes itself through its thematic depth. Bhattarai delicately addresses the sensitive issue of suicide, emphasizing resilience and the importance of confronting life's challenges. The novel becomes a symbol of hope, urging readers, particularly the youth, to face life's complexities with courage and determination.

Sada, burdened by her physical limitations, feels like a weight on her father and sister. The novel powerfully expresses the psychology of a young woman full of zeal and desire, suddenly confined to bed. The storytelling is crafted in a way that deeply resonates with the reader, evoking a profound sense of empathy for the protagonist's struggles.

In terms of character development, Sada’s introverted nature and inclination to dwell on the past make her a relatable yet challenging protagonist. In contrast, Sufi's positivity and ability to forgive and forget provide a clear contrast, highlighting the novel’s central theme of choosing resilience over despair. Sarthak’s character adds another layer, illustrating the impact of a present-focused approach on relationships.

‘Priya Sufi’ extends beyond the boundaries of a typical novel. Bhattarai, known for his earlier works in the romance genre, takes a bold step in this narrative by blending elements of love, motivation and introspection. The characters’ complexity, combined with the novel’s overarching message of resilience, establishes it as a significant contribution to Nepali literature. This novel not only engages readers but also prompts them to reflect on life’s profound journey.
