Dr Upendra Devkota’s nostalgic visit to birthplace


Famed neurosurgeon Dr Upendra Devkota, recently diagnosed with a cancer in his gall bladder, has visited the house where he was born in Bohoragaun, Palungtar of Gorkha district on Saturday, according to newspaper reports.

Whereas social media were full with multiple hoax news stories about his health, Devkota on Saturday wished to visit the birthplace and his family arranged a helicopter for the trip, according to Naya Patrika.

He spent around one and half hours in his village including 55 minutes of his stay at the yard of his house, according to Kantipur. He, however, could not talk to visitors and well-wishers.

Meanwhile, Nagarik claims that Dr Devkota has been telling doctors attending to him that he is feeling ‘amazing’ and ‘wonderful’ though he is getting weaker physically.
