    The three novels of "Under The Painted Eyes" are set in the shadow of the

    great Himalayan Mountains and against the background tapestry of Nepal's

    fascinating history and rich culture. Fictional and historical characters

    live, love, fight and worship under the watching eyes of the Adi Buddha,

    which are painted on the torans of the Swayambhunath and the Bodnath and

    other ancient temples. The novels tell of romance and love over the

    centuries and the happiness and tragedy they bring. There are the

    golden-roofed pagodas and the exotic festivals, intrigue, war and massacre,

    and the abuse of power and finally the successful struggle for democracy in

    modern times.

    Review(s)

    "The book brings out mixture of the history of Nepal in the most

    interesting manner, in a heady intrigue of romance and war... The

    description of temples and festivals alone are engrossing enough to bring

    more tourists to Nepal." - TRIBUNE
