Nepathya’s 2019 Australian Tour which started from Birsbane Nov 19 finally concluded at The Palms, Melbourne on the 23rd of December. After commencing the show with Bheda Ko Woon Jasto front man Amrit Gurung expressed his heartfelt condolence on the untimely death of Suk Gurung- the lyricist of Nepathya’s popular early hit Chekyo Chekyo ,breaking Nepathya’s usual trend of starting a concert i.e. 3 back to back songs and then a conversation with the audiences, citing amongst the housefull hall of audiences, “हिजो नेपथ्यले एउटा साथी गुमाएको छ। एउटा यस्तो संगीतकर्मी साथी जसले हामीलाई पहिलो हिट गीत ‘छेक्यो छेक्यो’ दिएका थिए। म शुक गुरुङको सम्झनामा यसै मञ्चबाट हार्दिक श्रद्धान्जली अर्पण गर्न चाहन्छु। उनको आत्मालाई शान्ति मिलोस् ।”
Suk Gurung who had been suffering from diabetes had been relying on dialysis due to impaired kidney function and had also lost his visual abilities because of the disease. He took his last breath on 22nd December, Sunday morning. May his departed soul rest in peace!
