ederal Nepal: Trials and Tribulations is Jha's debut non-fiction book, which includes insights from the perspective of a constitutional lawyer and insider for political parties during the constitution drafting process. The book exposes the manipulations in the constitution writing and implementing process and the dilution of the agenda of change, including federalism. It was expected that Nepal's new constitution would help reform the state uniting Madhesi, Tharu, Janjatis, women and hill people. But the charter has, in fact, proved to be divisive. This book illustrates that even a constitution passed by almost 90 percent of people's elected representatives can be full of flaws. It also underscores the fact that mandates of popular movements for change can be diluted by conservative forces through manipulative strategies and ambiguous constitutional language.
