Laaz (The Shame) is a satirical story. Bhagwaray has been recently freed from bonded labour in the plains of western Nepal. Amidst government’s historic decision to abolish bonded labour, the lack of an effective government program to help the freed labourers’ transition to the ‘free’ society, and the disputes among the contesting local political parties, Bhagwaray has difficulty finding a fabric to sew his underwear.
