Fictional stories of real pain – myRepublica
The collection of stories’Sampurna Akash‘written by Shobha Gyawali, which is related to the field of communication by profession, basically contains stories written with female characters from different areas of the center. All of the 25 stories included in this collection appear to be based on real events as if they were their own and those of those around them. History prompts us to become aware of the growing anomalies of so-called modern society and to adapt to reality. Each story has a larger dimension and flows quickly. When reading the stories, the reader does not know when the stories end.
Pahilo Maya (first love) is also the first story of the collection. Rama loves and trusts her husband very much. But Ramesh brings another woman on their first birthday. Rama then leaves the house. But his love for Ramesh does not diminish. The definition of love goes beyond living together or not living with someone; this story gave a strong message that the marriage wall is not a circle of love. And, many other stories offered similar messages that the characters presented strongly.
In the story titled Chanchalta (Restlessness), the writer tried to emphasize the sorrow that sooner or later arises when one forgets for momentary pleasure. The happiness of earning money through own work and sweat can only be long lasting. People have no idea when grief and hardship arise. After all, it is the mother who remembers and supports in times of mourning. With this message, the story warns women not to forget their duty. Even though the stories are written with women at the center, not all of the characters in the story blindly support one aspect of women. The beauty of the stories included in this collection is to point out the weaknesses of women and to be cautious about the impact of such weaknesses.
The story is inspired by the fact that one should not only end his life by fighting against the betrayal of the male characters, but also devote time and energy to building another world. History has tried to increase the courage of women, especially those who spend their days shedding tears after being betrayed and humiliated. Giving the message that you are also capable of doing something can be seen as a more appealing aspect of this story.
Vidushi’s Pran is an equally powerful story of a woman who does not cry after being betrayed by a male character, nor live with the determination to take revenge. Instead, she’s strong. She expresses her commitment to do something in front of him and moves forward, making herself stronger and stronger. In this sense, the protagonist of this story can turn out to be a band-aid for many women who suffer from alienation. At first glance, All Heaven is fundamentally a love story but different from 16 years of youth where the greatness of women is reflected with every step. His generosity and selflessness are evident. There is a power to make the aggressor repent and to defend that love and affection are not limited to any gender, class, religion, color, geography, caste, etc. In that sense, a decent sarcasm of love and affection is found in most of the stories.
The story titled “Swarthako Antya (End of Selfishness)” is based on a theme that gives a precise presentation of how children forget their duties to their parents in so-called modern urban life. The story explores the reality of how minds become small and ruthless in the drama of turmoil. Not only that, the question asked by his characters, “Where are we going after all?” is poignant. This quickly eroded the current so-called modern and civilized generation. Why bother to visit even a sick mother? The author wrote a very relevant and appropriate story.
The book also has some good male characters. In that sense, he doesn’t seem to be trying to make all men look bad by putting them in one basket. In other words, each story seeks to change men with the weapon of love rather than revenge. Different dimensions of love are woven into the book before marriage, during marriage, and at the time of losing a husband or wife after remarriage.
‘Sampurna Akash (the whole sky)’ is a collection of different stories. It examines the existing city life and the amorous character within it, exposing the issues. And, not just crying, not just tears, there is a mix of practical lessons and courage. Analyzing in this way, the characters in this collection portrayed the problems, pain, and courage of middle-class women in a quick fashion. In other words, they expose hidden realities.
Pulitzer Prize-winning New York couple Dr Nicholas and Cyril Udon have written a book called Half the Sky. The book, published in 2009, focuses on women who have survived extreme challenges and poverty in various countries, who are moving on to greater responsibilities and returning to social work. Likewise, the true story of 12 people is included in the book. And, the book seeks to convey the message that upheaval can be turned into opportunities, and that such opportunities don’t just mean being for your own convenience.
Sampurna Akash includes fictional stories that appear real. And, in the current situation, women have been inspired to move forward in embracing the reality of the country. In this sense, this collection of stories has become a mirror not only of the oppression, betrayal and arrogance of women, but also of their courage, enthusiasm and inspiration. The collection of stories conveyed to the audience the message that a woman is superior to others in the literal sense and how she can cope with any kind of misery.
The stories in the collection are able to defend the nature of women who cannot be negative even towards their sons and daughters who take them to the nursing home. Likewise, Gyawali’s stories highlight the nature of women to trust others quickly and not want to get out of the circle of honesty and, as a result, get into trouble. Not only that, the characters in his stories managed to show themselves by vowing to get out of such a situation. Those who read this collection of stories, especially women, seem to have a lot of courage to face life’s problems.
