Paris-e Eiffel tower-er nichey dNaat keliye fotua tolar porey, tong-er upor thekey chhoto kaaj karar lobh shamley, chaampi-chaampi females dekhey brain jhikumiku hoye jabar poreo, Hutumthumo Bastille-ta size kortey giyechhilo. Ki korbey, bangali boley katha - restaurant ke “resto-rNa” boley, mukhey French Revolution to “g”-ey cognac-er aroma. Ta giye dekhey, le halua! Maal-ta vanish. Bahu din aageyi. Puro surreal ghapla. Gili-gili-ge.

14 July, 1789-er case-ta bujhtey tayi Hutumthumo Kathmandu gechhey. Gyan-chacha’r mundu guillotine-e dhuklo boley. “Republic of Nepal” ghotey-o jetey paarey. Hutumthumo-o tak-dhin-a-dhin. Ekhono bor-da ra kNyachaal na pakaleyi holo. Mao-baadi rao mepey miaow-miaow korchhey. Prachanda babu-r ek-khana mokkhom realpolitik, raja na thakley Mao-juju dhorar shikhandi ke shikhanji korey diyechhe. Bala jaye na, je rate-e ghaapla cholchhey tatey hoyeta rajbari gherao, prasaad-gatrey mutropaat o ghNyachaat!

Nepali ghapla-ta to aar media-khNochano, drishtinandan “Orange” revolution noye. E ekdom rog-rogey aasli cheez. Shaat-party alliance bhebechhilo kichu bamaal hok, ektu chaap poruk tarpor sheyi je-key sheyi mutual. Media-r uskani-te ekta naam o diyechhilo – “Lal Ghuras”, matlab lal rhodhodendron. Oi je ud-dhata jata shakha-r uporey ki shob aache na. Holo na guru, Bahadur-Champa-Thapa-ra shottiyi jabor dakol-er rastaye. Je kono din jhingchak ghotlo boley. Naam-er stereotyping diye-o maal-gulokey aar shamlano jachhe na.

Farasi biplob-er katha shune je aaNtla-der nyaj potash-potash korchhey tader-o boley raakhi – otayi shesh katha noye. Mone rekho 1789-er kirti-karbar dekhey farasi colony Haiti-o jakhon ei pothey jetey cheyechhilo takhon tader kaan muley diye ei biplobi farasi-rayi bolechhilo - Na bhaya, republic-tipublic aamader janyo. Kalo-manusher e-bishoye eto nulo kyaney ga? Hya-re ei sheyi ek-i Republic jaar teranga-ke selaam korar tara-ey toder Ram Mohun thyang bhNengechhilo.

Katha kom, kaaj beshi, Hutumthumo julu julu chokkhe Nepal-e ki hoye ta maapchhe. Blog-e bok-bok porey korbey. Pachha-e guchhiye mughlayi laathi aaro anek-eri porchhey o portey thakbey. Aaro besh kichu-r pora darkar. Shomjheychhen to dada-didi-ra – er por aamrao. Aage ek-khana laal bari tarpor ek-khana shada bari. Jabor dakol. First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin. Ityadi, ityadi.
