Kathmandu, Sept 1: Speakers at a programme remembered the role of Motiram Bhatt in Nepali literature. They said Motiram had played a significant role to publicize the talent of Adikavi Bhanubhakta.
At the programme organized by Nepal Education Council on the occasion of the 151st birth anniversary of litterateur Bhatt on Thursday, Rastrakavi Madhav Prasad Ghimire, said, “If there was no Motiram Bhatta, Bhanubhakta’s literature could hardly reach among the people.”
