Karnali Blues is an epic story about a young boy who travels to different phases of his life; with his parents. The story’s main plot focuses on the character’s father who develops in our own spirits by the layers of Buddhisagar’s writing. We are made to see the character’s father from different angles: from being strict to loving. Though the main character is the father, the writer also adds a major chunk of his life into it while holding the story and binding it together with several in-and-out characters like Parvati Didi, Ekraj, Mamata Didi, Sharmila, Chandre, Bhagiram, Batu, Sadham, Mandire, Ramesh, Shiva Shankar etc. The story contains the naughtiness of childhood that are hilarious as well as moments of heart-breaking chapters that will keep you wanting more of Buddhisagar’s easy words and perfectly structured sentences. The story starts slow but adds adrenaline to the latter part of the plot and ends rather on a high note that will provide you with intimate satisfaction as well making you want more of Buddhisagar’s novels and literature.
