Human being, by nature, regards his or her place of birth as paradise, Pemba, a Sherpa and the protagonist of Other Side of Paradise, too regards Nepal as his paradise. But when he moves to America after a lot of struggles and achieved his “American Dream”, he becomes deeply aware of the inevitable cultural shock, hybridization of food, language and social circumstances.
Like Pemba, an entire generation of Nepali youths believes that America is the ‘other side of paradise’ and wants to migrate and live there, Linda, from California, on the other hand, has strong conviction that Nepal is the ‘other side of paradise’ after her Mount Everest area trekking.
Pemba, working as a trekking help, falls in love with gorgeous, articulate, educated and unusually attractive Linda during trekking. Pemba moves to America on a fiancé visa, gets married with Linda and enjoys a European honeymoon trip. Almost immediately after the honeymoon, Pemba is shocked to receive a divorce paper from Linda. The revelation traumatizes and shatters Pemba. He falls into a spell of deep depression, and as per guardian angel’s vision, takes refuge in a Amish Community.
