  1. देखेको मुलुक भित्रको पृष्टहरुलाई पल्टाउदै जादा अध्ययन गर्न पाईयो। “लिलीभिर”
    लिलीभिरको पन्नाहरुलाई पल्टाउदै जान्छु त्यति मेरो आत्मा आत्तालिदै जाने गर्थ्थो। त्यो काहाली लाग्दो भिरको केहि खण्डमा तपाई मरोपरान्त हुनेगरि बस्नु भएको क्षण । गुहार माग्दा तपाईको आवाजलाई वेवास्ता गर्दाका त्यो ताकाका समय।
    आज त्यो लिलिभिर बाट सिलाम निस्के झै हामीले कनकमणि दीक्षित सरको देखेको मुलुक पढ्न पाईयो।
    अन्तमा कनक सर आजकाल त्यो लिलिभिरले के स्वरुप बदलेको छ ?

    1. Dear Mr. Dixit,

      I read your recent comment in The Hindu in which you discussed the need for South Asian countries to cooperate more closely. It is excellent. As the editor of the Frankfurt based magazine D+C Development and Cooperation with the website http://www.dandc.eu, I would like to get in touch with you. Perhaps we can cooperate occasionally – either with you personally or with someone from your editorial teams. Best wishes and thanks for your kind attention, Hans
