January 18, Kathmandu: After the great success of the English version, senior Chinese journalist Shengping Zhou has come up with the Nepali edition of his bestseller Mend or End: Nepal in the eyes of a Chinese journalist.

Shengping, who is working for Xinhua News Agency, has been living and working in Nepal for over a decade.

The English edition of the book Mend or End published in April 2021 had received positive feedback, with over a dozen reviews published in various media outlets of Nepal and China.  

Former Prime Minister of Nepal Jhalanath Khanal, Chancellor of Nepal Academy Chancellor Ganga Prasad Uprety,  Law Professor Yubaraj Sangroula, have written forewords in the Nepali edition.

The publisher of the book Janata Publications has kept the selling price at Rs 350.

The Nepali edition is divided into five chapters: politics, economics, culture and education, society and environment, and travel and tourism.

 In the book, the author has shared his personal experience and stories through the collection of already-published articles in both national and international media.

“It is a compilation of articles, analyses, interviews and news items, and opinion pieces,” the author said.

To make the Nepali book more attractive and updated, the author has incorporated eight new chapters, replacing some of the older chapters. 

These new articles touch hot and pressing issues like China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the US’s Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Compact.

According to the reviewers, the book is a must-read as it contains suggestions that can help resolve some of the difficult problems facing Nepali politics.
