About the Author
Sikkim-based ex-bureaucrat (b. 1947/ BS 2003) known more for his associations with Newah Vijnana, NESOCA, WNO and the publications through this Guthi than propounding of the Sikkim Newa: Guthi in 1982 that came into existence and registered in 1994. Rajiva Shanker Shresta was in news recently when he was invited to be the Special Guest in the 9th Convention of the Newah Organization of America on May 30, 2010 at Potomac Community Center, Maryland USA and speak on the Newars of Sikkim. It was here that his latest Newar : Haami Yastai Chhaun - with notes on contemporary issues that grasp and grapple the Newars - had a worldwide release.
Reaching beyond for him is being dedicated, repay the society - the best way you can and all the manner possible at every opportunity you come across.
