Tulasi’s poems ooze out of the poet’s experience and perception looking at people and the world around him. Most of the poems are on the theme of love, life, and liberty. They cover a decade long time period in the Himalayan country of Nepal that was affected by People’s war. All poems carry emotions, human sentiments, and remnants of war, poverty, and loss of lives. Brilliant poetry, strong images, very poetic!Kay Traille, author of Hearing Their Voices.
“Tulasi’s novel “Running from the Dreamland” sees America through the eyes of a visiting student from Kathmandu as he struggles to make a life in his new land. . . . Importantly, this story gives us insight into the immigrant experience and the difficulties and joys of adjusting to a new culture.”Anthony grooms, author of Trouble No More Bombinham
