Action Works Nepal proudly presents `Khalangama Hamala', written by Ms. Radha Paudel, Founder/President of Action Works Nepal (N-Peace Award 2012, Women Peace Maker 2012, Social Worker Award 2013). It is written about the concerns and challenges of Karnali, and life during the Nepalese Civil War/Maoist Insurgency in Nepal with special focus on 14 November, 2002 . Ms. Paudel survived 13 horrific hours of cross fire, and the peak years of insurgency in Nepal in one of the most poor and rural areas called Karnali, Nepal. http://nepalitimes.com/article/nation/No-peace,432
Ms. Paudel has already committed 10% of the royalties from this book, for the Peace Commemorative Memorial Center (Miteri Shanti Batika) in Jumla to honor and remember the 247 people who died during insurgency in Nepal. The Peace Commemorative Memorial is $60,000 to construct, and is a three story building which includes a garden, meditation hall, café, rest room, e-library and resource center, sports, and memorial statue all centered around Peace. Friends from the USA and UK, relatives and friends of the deceased, and Ms. Paudel have already contributed, but there is still a long way to go to fully fund this dream. So, by purchasing and reading this book, you invest in peace. Namaste.
