Muna Madan is a people epic written in a melodious version in 1935 by Nepalese writer Laxmi Prasad Devkota that tells the heartbreaking account of Muna and Madan. It is one of Nepali writing’s most notable works. “It would be okay if every one of my works were singed, save for Muna Madan,” Devkota broadly said not long before his passing in 1959. It is the best Nepali book at any point created as far as deals. It’s anything but’s a customary Jhaurey song. The story follows a man (Madan) who leaves his significant other (Muna) and goes to Lhasa to bring in cash. Madan is a delegate of all Nepalese young people who move abroad to get by.

Muna, Madan’s wife, is the queen of love and sacrifice. She adores her Madan and is heartbroken that she must send him to Lahsa, a land filled with dangers and hardships. But, in the end, she embraces the challenge and stays in the country with her elderly and frail mother-in-law.Madan falls ill on the way back to his house. His buddies abandon him on the route and return home to inform him that he has died. Finally, he is rescued by a Nepalese man who belongs to a lower caste. That is why a man is said to be wonderful not because of his caste or race, but because of his heart, which is full of love and humanity.

Madan comes to Kathmandu after regaining his health to find that his mother and beloved wife have passed away. Madan eventually realizes that money has no meaning at that time.The story also depicts the lives of a poor widow who went through a lot without her spouse and eventually died of despair. Devkota has written on the most pressing issues confronting Nepalese society at the time in this poem.Laxmi Prasad Devkota wishes to stabilize the truths of traditional societies, unscientific ideas, and the detrimental effects of unemployment and poverty in Nepalese society via the story of Muna and Madan. By writing about Muna and Madan’s relationship, the poet has beautifully characterized love.

The work has proven to be a significant contribution to Nepalese literature. This is a must-read work in Nepali literature, in my opinion.
