The three novels of “Under The Painted Eyes” are set in the shadow of the

great Himalayan Mountains and against the background tapestry of Nepal’s

fascinating history and rich culture. Fictional and historical characters

live, love, fight and worship under the watching eyes of the Adi Buddha,

which are painted on the torans of the Swayambhunath and the Bodnath and

other ancient temples. The novels tell of romance and love over the

golden-roofed pagodas and the exotic festivals, intrigue, war and massacre,

and the abuse of power and finally the successful struggle for democracy in

modern times.

more tourists to Nepal.” – TRIBUNE
