1. Read the part of the poem and do the tasks. [5]
The Chimney Sweeper
When my mother died I was very young,
And my father sold me while yet my tongue
Could scarcely cry ‘weep! ‘weep! ‘weep! ‘weep!
So your chimneys I sweep and in soot I sleep.
There’s little Tom Dacre, who cried when his head,
That curled like a lamb’s back, was shaved: so I said,
“Hush, Tom! never mind it, for when your head’s bare,
You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair.”

And so he was quiet, and that very night,
As Tom was a-sleeping he had such a sight!
That thousands of sweepers, Dick, Joe, Ned, and Jack,
Were all of them locked up in coffins of black;

And by came an angel who had a bright key,
And he opened the coffins and set them all free;
Then down a green plain, leaping, laughing they run,
And wash in a river and shine in the sun.
- William Blake

Jitiya is an important festival of Nepali married women of Mithilanchal and Tharu women of all castes. This festival is named after Masabashi’s son Jimutavahana, a blessing son of the Sun. Masabashi was an unmarried princess who spent her life as hermit living in a hermitage.

Jitiya falls in the month of Ashwin (September-October). It is celebrated for three days on Saptami (the seventh day), Astami (the eighth day) and Navami (the ninth day). The fasting day, Astami, is called Jittiya. The married women take brata (fast) for the good fortune of their children, husband and family. In this festival, brothers invite their married sisters to their homes, and the married women go to their maiti (maternal home).

On the first day of Jitiya, women take a bath in a river or a pond early in the morning and formally start their brata. Before taking a bath, they put khari (oil-seed-cake), special soil, on a leaf of sponge gourd and worship Jimutavahana, and let it flow on the river. They take the remaining oil back home and massage their children with it. This khari is effused for legendary figures Chilo (eagle) and Shero (fox) wishing them to take brata (fasting) of Jitiya. The married women remember their female ancestors too. On this day, women scrub their house with cow’s dung to make their house sacred. At mid night, they prepare ongthan or datkhat (special food), and eat it before the cockcrow. They also eat fish and millet bread. They have curd, beaten rice and fruits as dar. Before eating datkhat, they offer some food the legendary figures Chilo and Shero.

4. Read the text and do the tasks. [15]
Narayan Wagle is one of few Nepali journalists I admire. I have been an avid reader of his gossip column Coffee Guff which is marked by gift of phrases. I’m also a fan of his graphic reporting specially from remote corners of Nepal. Simplicity, I must say, is the hallmark of Wagle’s writing. But, as I waded through the pages of Wagle’s debut novel Palpasa Cafe, I concluded that it’s just an extended version of Coffee Guff.

Let’s begin from the beginning. The novel starts with a metafictional note. The narrator, a journalist, is waiting for his protagonist to show the manuscript before sending it for printing. But then, Drishya (sight, literally) gets arrested. Chapter One opens in Goa, a perfect place for love, it seems! Here a painter falls in love with his admirer (a US returned. amateur documentary maker), solitary loitering.

Let me take a break from storytelling. In fact, if you have read the novel, you know the story and if you haven’t, you don’t want to know, for it spoils your curiosity. Anyway, the story goes, as life goes on. But two things are crucial: how it is told and what the content is. Wagle obviously is a formalist. He prefers form over content. Nevertheless, the story weaves both the complexities of ongoing conflict and its consequences.

But, like the protagonist’s shattered dream of opening Palpasa Cafe in the idyllic hills, the novel seems promising in the outset while needs up in the maze of it’s own making. Conflict is only the backdrop where an artist searches meaning of his love-life. But despite having an encyclopaedic knowledge of nature and painting, Wagle fails to portray Drishya as an artist. Like Wagle himself, he sounds more like a journalist; so he is an alter ego of its creator. The novel is oddly replete with female characters (Palpasa, Christina, Phulan, Jemina, gradma etc.) whereas males are not only mysteriously absent but are also nameless and faceless in the narrative.
A. Complete the following sentences using the correct words or phrases form the text. [7x1=7]
a. Narayan Wagle used to write a gossip column called, .............. .
b. .............. is a distinctive feature of his writing.
c. The speaker in the novel, Palpasa Cafe is a ............... .
d. Chapter one of the novel has the love story between a/an ................ and an admirer.
e. Narayan Wagle likes form more than ........... .
f. The novel contains the story of ................... and its effects.
g. The novel is full of ...................... characters.
B. Answer the following questions:  [8x1=8]
a. What is the distinctive feature of Wagle’s Coffee Guff?
b. What sort of graphic reporting does the writer particularly like about Wagle?
c. How did the writer relate Palpasa Cafe with the Coffee Guff?
d. What does the novel begin with?
e. What two things are important in stories?
f. What does an artist look for in the context of conflict?
g. What has Wagle failed to portray?
h. What is the strange thing about the novel regarding the characters?
