Kumar Nagarkoti has created a niche for himself in the Nepali literary landscape with his eccentric stories, unconventional plots and remarkably different style of storytelling, which have attracted acclaim and derision alike—with some hailing his complex and non-linear plotlines as a breakthrough for Nepali literature, while others deriding the works for their mix of English and other languages.
Docha literally translates to the shoes that people in the Himalayan region wear. But for Nagarkoti, the word holds the meaning of a private museum—a personal space where he can store and safeguard his feelings, emotions, and memories. Docha is a memoir that sums up Nagarkoti's life, his love for literature, art, and the people around him, and everything that defines who he is today. This book is a love letter of sorts to everything that encompasses his existence today.
