The long road

Shanta Chaudhary's journey from a kamalari to lawmaker in the CA was a long and difficult one. Even after she came to Kathmandu and sat in the Constituent Assembly, she faced contempt from other representatives and the media because she could not read and write. With the release of her book Kamalari dekhi sabhasad samma (From kamalari to lawmaker), Chaudhary hopes to leave her critics mincing their words. Nepali Times caught up with the debutant writer to find out about her journey.

Nepali Times: What is your book about?

Shanta Chaudhary: It’s about my personal struggles as well as the hardships faced by people from my community.

Why did you decide to write a book?

Many people were interested in writing about me after finding out my story. But I felt that nobody could write about my experiences better than me. While I admit that the book is hardly a piece of literature, I hope it can be a source of inspiration to others.

How have readers reacted so far?

Those who have read the book like it. I now want the general public to also read it and share their thoughts with me.

What encouraged you to join politics?

Becoming a lawmaker would never have been possible without the help of others. I was able to gain valuable experience from the protests we launched on behalf of the landless. I guess it was a combination of all this and coincidence that brought me here.

How did you help the kamalari cause during your time in the CA?

All the issues I raised were lost because the constitution wasn’t written. But I took the voice of the kamalaris, kamaiyas, and landless to the CA and because of my efforts the government allocated some money for former indentured labourers. I am the first woman to fight for the freedom of kamalaris and have also worked to improve the condition of victims of sexual abuse.
