The Community Root
I have realized that visible properties and momentary achievements, which we consider as the goals in our life is simply an illusion and mirage on our minds, but natural truth is the only reality for all creatures including human being on this planet. We must survive happily for the fullest life until the mother nature asks us to leave this planet. But, the greatest war in this world is the war within us since everything is within our minds.
I started my professional career in 1990 at the age of early sixteen with: (i) Save the Children-Norway (Redd Barna); (ii) Japan Medical Association (JMA)/School and Community Health Project (SCHP); (iii) UK Government's Department for International Development (DFID)/Rural Access Program (RAP); (iv) United Nations Population Fund, Country Technical Services Team for South and West Asia (UNFPA CST for SAWA Countries); (v) Himalaya Broadcasting Company (HBC) Radio Station; (vi) Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers through Strengthening the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers Project funded by DFID under the UK Aid; (vii) DFID/Enabling State Program-Nepal; (viii) United Nations Children Fund/Regional Office for South Asia (UNICEF/ROSA); (ix) United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/International Foundation of Electoral System (IFES); (x) USAID/National Democratic Institute (NDI); (xi) Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA); (xii) Asian Development Bank (ADB)/Nepal Residence Mission. Moreover, I was working with National Entrepreneurship Development Center (NEDC); a federated apex body of UNDP/MEDEP and MEDPA’s fifty-three district based partner NGOs; created and backstopped by UNDP/Micro Enterprise Development Program (MEDEP), which is a joint initiative and funding of United Nations Development Program (UNDP); Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) under Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) of Australian Government; Department for International Development (DFID) of the UK Government; Canadian Agency for International Development (CIDA) of Canadian Government; New Zealand Agency for International Development (NZAID) of New Zealand Government; and MEDEP and MEDPA Programs/Projects are executed by Government of Nepal (GON)/Ministry of Industry.
Trainings and Seminars
I have attended approximately forty-five short-term training courses and participated on many learning events and opportunities, particularly on seminars and workshops in order to enhance my career with the international organizations. Moreover, I have also actively worked as a team member through my previous employers to provide general support and facilitate national, regional and international training courses, seminars and workshops in the past. I have developed a reading habit of different books, literatures and journals to make my know-how stronger, which directly contributed for my career enhancement as well as to broaden the positive mindset in maintaining optimistic personality during difficult circumstances in my life.
I used to regularly study various kinds of literatures in different subject matters up to 2:00-3:00am in every day to quench my deep-rooted learning hunger from my childhood. As a result, I used to be always the first or second boy in classes in my entire school education and class monitor to control class-mates in case of absence of teachers, which directly contributed me to shape my nature for self-confidence, hard working and democratic leadership qualities in my present life. As far as my pedagogical background is concerned, I have obtained Double Masters Degree in the mainstream of the business studies/management and arts/humanities i.e. Masters in Business Studies (MBS) and MA Rural Development, both in the first divisions. Moreover, I have also completed the third master degree in the Public Administration (MPA), although I have one back paper of twenty marks for final certification.
My Life’s Journey
My father and mother tied social-knot in their home district in Gulmi (hilly region), which is also my birth place, where I spent up to the age of my four years. Later on, I spent two years in Gorakhpur’s army camp including Nicharaul in UP/Bihar of India. Moreover, I spent additional four years of my childhood in my own hometown in Triveni Bazaar, Nawalparashi district (terai belt). Similarly, I spent my childhood after the age of ten years in different places of Lalitpur and Kathmandu, both in rural and urban areas of the capital, as I was grown-up in this valley from the age of ten. I migrated to Kathmandu from my hometown when I was 10 years in 1984 and still living at the same place. I have intensively travelled and spent quality times with the various communities, casts, creeds and religions across India and Nepal. I have visited 45 rural and urban districts in Nepal and thoroughly travelled many parts of Indian cities including Tibet, Thailand, Singapore and Philippines. Similarly, I have closely worked with different nationalities of many countries with my previous employers, who are multilateral, bilateral and unilateral organizations in developmental sector based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Subsequently, I am able to easily understand different natives’ dialects, cultures, customs, practices and life styles among the diversified communities in India and Nepal as well as other parts of the world as I have closely worked with the international communities from the early teenage of my life.
I, therefore, can easily mix-up with different casts, creeds, religions and ideologies. Such kind of open mindset made me very liberal minded and respect for the co-existence of other people and communities as nothing is above the humanitarian sentiment on this planet. I am, therefore, can easily adopt with local situations and diversified groups of people with different values and ethos in life, which is a basic requirement to work in a team for the client orientation in the competitive world, where individuals may have their own varied personalities that will be the human resource assets for any organizations, if we properly manage and mobilize them for the institutional benefit purpose.
My Extra Skills
I can independently support for trainings, seminars and workshops; conduct interviews; I can draft articles, journals, reports, proposals as well as poems/songs after necessary literature review; translate documents from Nepali to English and vice versa; delivery of lectures for students from school to masters degree courses after proper preparation; prepare report/data presentation; focused group discussions; coordination, liaison and other administrative as well as program related roles and responsibilities as per organizational requirements because I can immediately update and upgrade myself for the assigned responsibilities for my new roles.
My Cumulative Experience
I always tried to be a generic and accordingly groomed myself from my early childhood to be a flexible person in my life as well as for the professional career in order to adjust with the existing circumstances and market demand. I persistently attempted to broaden my horizons in my life and never confined myself within a limited framework. I, therefore, have successfully worked in fifteen positions with more than a dozen organizations and experienced job assignments both in administrative/operational as well as program/technical fields. Moreover, being a student under multiple disciplines, particularly three masters degree holder in the mainstream subjects on management, rural development and public administration courses, I can work for administration, operational, finance, development, economics, communication, coordination, reporting, planning, budgeting, socio-economic and psycho-social developmental sectors. Furthermore, to be more specific and precise, I can independently handle the multiple capacities in the cross-cutting sectors viz receptionist, secretary, assistant, analyst, officer, supervisor, coordinator, specialist, manager, director, etc., which directly depends on the nature and volume of organization, annual operational turnover and number of employees.
My Working Strategies
I am extremely punctual in my commitments and hardly leave the workplace until completion of the assigned responsibilities despite working late hours and weekend. I am single so that I can spend any hours of my personal time for the timely completion of the allocated tasks and meet the official deadlines. I have clearly understood the value of time and priorities management in the workplace. I try my best for the clients’ orientation, teamwork, shared organizational visions, missions and goals to achieve institutional targets. I never compromise for the quality outputs and delivery of timely results in my performance in modern result-based management system. As the performance based evaluation process is the best indicator for the assessment of performance in a team. I prefer for the knowledge sharing, open communication, flexibility and mutual respects among the team members to be a team player. I always stress to work in a system approach for the institutional memory to enhance the sustainable development approach as in-and-out of people is usual procedure but institutions must function permanently.
