Entrepreneurship I

This time I am asking a very difficult and an important question to myself. Being an Electronic Engineer, I have a strong inclination to technology and innovation. But when I look around, in my country(Nepal), I get disappointed. I rarely see innovations happening.

Then a very important question arises- Where are we all heading towards? What are our priorities and how are we planning to achieve them, not as an individual but as a country.

Since my childhood, I have been told that the strength of our country lies in its Agriculture, Water Resources and Tourism. But are we the leaders in the above field? Do we dominate the world in those fields and the answer is NO. Am I asking for these changes too early? I fear that these may be our illusions to keep the hope around. I also use to hear, "Nepal ko dhan Hariyo Ban", which means "Green Forests are the riches of Nepal". But its been ages, that I have not heard it being said. Some how, those riches are lost. Are we sure that these few left strengths will not disappear in the similar fashion.

Every year, thousands of engineers, scientists and doctors graduate from colleges. Where do all of them land in their life? I myself cannot justify my position. Are we all only the job seekers? Are we all machines, waiting to serve? I assume not, so why is there less innovations, and if there are any that I am not aware of it then, where are they? I have myself ,struggled to find one. In a bigger picture, we are lagging in the field of innovations. We do not own any ideas or innovations of which we can be proud of. I was shocked to find out that, we even don't have any rights over some particular vegetation which is so truly ours. I must say but we are losing the right of claiming our identity. Is this where we are heading?

I want to say, some how disappointingly, that I am not proud of The Everest or The Buddha as, these are not our creation. We are just merely lucky to have them. I do not enjoy these jewels of ours, which is put on us so proudly. I want to be proud of what we can create, what we can deliver. I want to own a technology which is so rightfully ours and not others. We need to be proud of what we are doing and not of what we have, nor of what our ancestors did. Do we have the credentials of achieving this. I want to believe that we have ? Call me a dreamer or stupid child, if you can but I want to believe that we can be leaders in technology and innovation.

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev , for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtz and create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious. So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256 X 256 X 256 combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one. Lets start with F-Cube : In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You) OK

Passion and Flying

There is an interesting aspect of flying which grasps everyone's imagination. The freedom and the control of moving around the space without any obstacle is just too much to ask for, in one man's life :). Isn't it? As a young kid like everyone, flying was a dream. Not to mention the great stories of Leonardo Da Vinci and the Wrights brothers, who not only dreamt but also went on designing one, would inspire you to believe that some day in future it would be possible to fly like a bird. So let me tell you a short story about myself where I took myself to some limit into achieving this. :) I have been wanting to tell this for a long time but never found any occasion or reason to do so. It was long ago when I was still in grade 3/4, should be around 1993. Space Channel was just installed in our house and I would spend time watching cartoons and other science programs. That was when I noticed gliders and parachutes. The shear simplicity of the design took me by surprise.

Aug 3rd : Meaning Behind It

screen-shots of my diary on August 3rd I live a philosophical life with full concentration on wholeness rather than a single celled ideology. So I have come to see that August 3rd is more important to me than my birthday, cause this is the day when I actually started my journey into the wilderness with full consiousness. It was on August 3 that I started my newly owned life in Bangalore. Remembering my uncertainty at that time, the only thing I was sure about was finding myself. I think I have in many ways found myself in last 3 years. There is this wonderful saying - "You change because you have not found yourself yet". So I am still changing and the process of perfecting continues. It also happens that unknowingly, I tend to take into new journey every August. May be its because of its position in the yearly calender. But beside me, I know that there are hundred of Nepalese students who embark on their educational journey to America, UK and other areas on this very
