There should be writers from every hut : Leela Nisha


Former central chairperson of the Bhutanese Refugee Women Forum (BRWF), Leela Limbhu ‘Nisha’ is of the opinion that the Bhutanese community would be really proud if young writers emerge from every refugee hut.

She has said that writers in camps are not merely focussed to creations on love affairs, claiming that they have been revealing very good stories out of their suffering and pain provoked by unfruitful camp life. However, she expressed her sadness over lack of women writers in the community.

Prior to her resettlement in the United States weeks ago, Nisha talked to Vidhyapati Mishra of the Bhutan News Service about her literary career and other related aspects.
