Journalists have somehow easy platform to make publicity of their work, they have power on pen and words. No wonder on it, famous journalist Rabindra Mishra published his second book ‘Khan Pugos Dina Pugo’, a collection of articles which were published in Kantipur and Nagarik daily in different series. All these articles were published between 2065 to 2068 B.S and there are altogether 53 articles in two sections. The first part is about philanthropy journalism and the second is about politics. Rabindra Mishra and his team run a Non-government organization “Help Nepal Network” which collects funds through different sources and use this on different social works. The main intend of these articles is to float their mission to public. This book mainly focus as to encourage people to participate on these type of social works physically and try to define peoples’ favor political system or lokkalyankari rajyai.e. ‘politics of popular will’ specially like scandevian countries.   

 After certain period, many people want to change their main stream profession and try to use their knowledge in different works. It has two reasons. First want to be popular and the other they really want to work in new spirit. Mishra, here, is in the second category. He has great (beautiful) dreams and speaks in some articles like relation on city center and kamalpokhari or Dinbandhu’s work or letter for ex-king Gynandra or Gagan as a president. Of course, many people glimpse dreams which is the first foot step toward prosperous nation but, here are many youths who build dream house and move abroad. We know dream is not seen in sleeping, it is made out in day with conscious mind, Well done! , Mishra tries to convince these educated people to come back to Nepal and join hand on hand to make beautiful nation. He is very lucky that he can collect many names and information about different social news, so it is not only collections of essays but also the history of certain people who are doing best on their field but not recognized properly. Readers can comprehend many of such wonderful names and organizations.

 In second section, he tries to ignore or hide some facts about theories in the name of “Sidhantabadi aandhaharu” that every political system runs in certain global philosophical ideology. So it is not possible in Nepl as well. We can say that political parties are to be more responsible and trustworthy on their philosophy so that they really can do better. He has raised so many other questions in each article some of which really touch our heart and mind. Readers are suggested to read this book not as literature, rather examine to it as collection of questions from social disparity and voices of backward or middle class people through on capitalist eyes and with some courage to donate some amount.
