Nabin Bhatta presented his initiation paper on Mahakavi Laxmi Prasad Devkota's poem "Prabhu ji, Bhedo Banau" (Lord! Make Me a Sheep). In his paper, he shed light on the logical structure of the poem. He analyzed the poem in terms of claims and reasons taking the poem as a form of argument. Then, he looked at the poem as a piece of satire on human behaviour. After his presentation, Prof. Padma Devkota, Prof. Durga Aryal, Govinda Gajurel, Dr. Dhruva Karki, Tara Adhikari, Prabhu Yadav and Shekhar Pokharel expressed their views on the poem. Prof. Devkota cautioned the readers not to take the symbol of the 'sheep' literally. He viewed that the poem belongs to the anti-rationalist category within romanticism.
