"It holds a historical belief about the poetry capacity building of the famous Nepali poet Bhanu Bhakta . Bhanubhakta was a young boy from a wealthy family and was leading a luxurious life. He met a poor grass cutter who in spite of his poverty wanted to build a well (kuwa in Nepali) to help the travelers to quench their thirst and be remembered even after death. This made Bhanu Bhakta realize that despite being a wealthy and educated person, despite being “Bhanu Bhakta” he wasn't doing anything good for the public. This encounter is said to have inspired Bhanubhakta to do something remarkable in life. Thus as a later he became success to translate the Ramayana in Nepali and development of his career in poetry".
