An Arduous path takes the form of travelogue to account the socio-economic aspect of that long-abiding, complicated, and unresolved political issue of the Tibetan refugees living in Nepal for 60 years. This book is an attempt to look into the lives of the Tibetans who have left their birthplace and are living in the circumstances provided by different geography, language, and culture. The writer has brought forward the voices that were before left unheard.
