Introduction:

Bhupi Sherchan was born in 1937 and died in 1990 A.D. He was a Nepalese poet. He was born in Mustang district of western Nepal. He was awarded with Sajha Puraskar in 1970 for his poem collection "Ghumne Mech Mathi Andho Manchhe"-"घुम्ने मेच माथि अन्धो मान्छे" ( Blind Man On A Revolving Chair ). Sherchan was the most successful poet to popularize free verse. He has analyzed humans and human life in different ways but his biggest contribution to Nepalese society is that he has tried to show the way to the new generation through his numerous poems. His Himalayan nationalism can be seen in his poem "Hami"-"हामी" "US", where he claimed that Nepalese are brave, but foolish (because they are brave).
Bhupi Sherchan produced several odes to the martyrs of Nepal, including "Shahid Ko Samjhanama"-"शहिदको सम्झनामा", "Main Battiko Sikha"-"मैन बत्तिको शिखा", and "Ghantaghar"-"घण्टाघर".

Translation In Nepali Of 'The Clock Tower'( नेपालीमा अनुवाद ):

यस कविताले एक जना बुढो पेन्सनरको चित्रण गर्दछ, ऊ बुढो भएको छ, ऊ आफु, आर्मी हुँदाका वस्तुहरु सबै आफ्ना प्रियजनहरुलाई बाँडिसकेको छ। बुढो भए पनि हातमा एउटा घडी र आर्मीको एउटा टोपी चिनो स्वरुप आफुसँग छ। घण्टाघरको माथि डोम (टोपी) भए जस्तो र घाटीमा घडी भए जस्तै।
घण्टाघरको तल बसेर रानी पोखरी तिर आफ्ना आँखाहरु तेर्साएको छ। आफ्नो मृत्युको प्रतिक्षामा।
