Hailing from Nepal, the coolest part of the Himalayas, Barun Bajracharya carries the same cool character, right from our first interaction. We had no idea of working together for Blank Space, except the fact that he is one of the hundred wonderful contributing writers of our anthology; he contributed a beautiful story for our book. Now Barun is the Editor for Blank Space and has become an integral part of the team.
As we mentioned earlier, it is an uphill task for Blank Space and Propel Steps right from the beginning. With no publishing expertise, we dared to enter it, just with sheer inspiration and a vision. At times a few people showed us the dark sides of demons and devils in the world of publishing. Thanks to them, we found a good human being like Barun, who not just joined us as an Editor, but as a good companion who understands the aim behind our initiative and supports us. He has lifted the zeal of the team higher, with his passion and continuing the same. We are thankful to him for sharing his expertise with a budding organization like Propel Steps.
