Early life[edit]

Bhairav Aryal

He was born as the son of Khem Kumari Aryal and Homnath Aryal in September 20, 1936 in Kupondole, Lalitpur. His father worked as an accountant in Nepal Police. By the age of 12 Aryal married his wife Shova in 1948 and they had three sons and three daughters.

By the age of 21, he had been appointed as a full-time journalist in the government-run national daily newspaper[Gorkhapatra] and was later promoted in the editorial group. He also led the efforts to improve the 'Madhuparka' magazine, which was a monthly literary magazine published by Gorkhapatra. He also played a strong role in the publication of another literary magazine called 'Rachana'.[7][8]
