The Curious Case of Mr. Bhim Thapa


Bhakta Chand Director


    This documentary centers on Bhim’s awakening as a social advocate & an artist who has a peculiar way of expressing his ideas and philosophy.

    He dedicated his life on the idea that people needed to be awaken to bring changes in their lives.

    He held this idea for a lifetime, painting & inscribing “khoja” on the pavement, walls, and stones all over Nepal.

    Now, 96, old and fragile, he is still traveling and writing.

    It is believed that he has written "Khoja" over 8 million times.
