Adhikari, Haris Chand

Haris Chand Adhikari is from Jhapa, Nepal, currently staying in Kathmandu. He has an MA in English and American literature from Tribhuvan University. A member of The Society of Nepali Writers in English, he is a teacher of English by profession. His Nepali poems and songs have appeared in Gorkhapatra, Bimarsha and Kantipur Kopila. His English poems have recently appeared in Mad Swirl and Mirror Dance. At present, he is working on his first English poetic collection, which he hopes will be out by November. He primarily loves to write conversational and contemplative poetry, digging into the layers of phony faces, violence, injustice, shattered dreams, disillusionment, etc. And he describes himself as "a branch extended to aloofness that heavily swings when the day is windy".

Haris has translated a number of articles from English and Hindi into Nepali. In 2008, he co-translated Releasing the Powers of Junior Youth, a wonderful book on life and philosophy, for the Baha'i Community of Nepal. He worked for Nepal Monitor, a semi–scholarly online journal, for half a decade until 2008 as a research assistant and contributor.
