Poet Laureate Devkota was born on November 12, 1909 at Kathmandu, Nepal. He passed away at the tender age of 50 on September 14, 1959. Nepali people revere Laxmi Prasad Devkota as a god of Nepalese literature. His writings such as Muna Madan, Shakuntala and Sulochana rank very high in the literary world. There is universal belief that had these works been translated timely into English, we would be celebrating this event as Birthday of a Nobel Laureate. Let us get together and show our respect to this great Nepali Literature Icon.
