KATHMANDU, Feb 17: ‘Kabi Shiromani Rachanawali’, a five volume compilation, which includes all the literary works of Kabi Shiromani Lekhnath Paudel is being published by Publication Nepalaya.  Born in Arghaun Archale, a village east of Pokhara, Poet Lekhnath Paudel (1884-1966) is a towering icon of Nepali literature. He was honored with the title Kabi Shiromani. He is known for presenting complex poetry rich in traditional and classical precepts and philosophy in a simple and colloquial style.

Works representing the evolution of Nepali literature are presented, to be cherished and enjoyed by readers now and in the future, read the press statement. The compilation is edited by Professor Sanat Kumar Wasti.
