Autobiography of Binod Chaudhary

My father used to say, “in order to gain something we should give up something else.” However, I never believed in this philosophy of my father. I needed everything in my life and that is probably what has made all the difference.

This is how Mr. Chaudhary ascribes the reason of his success in his autobiography, “Binod Chaudhary”. Mr. Chaudhary, a renowned industrialist and the first Nepali citizen to register his name in the Forbes Magazine’s list of Worlds’ Billionaires, can be a good role model for the wannabe businesspersons and entrepreneurs of Nepal. His autobiography came just in time shortly after he registered his name in the list.

I was very eager to read this book when I learnt about it for the first time. And it didn't disappoint me. This book is a must read one for the aspiring businesspersons and entrepreneurs.

Preparing myself not to pursue MBA

I may fail, in my pursuit of business/career. I may find it difficult to solve the problems that might arise in course of doing a business. However, that is not the reason to sacrifice my free will  and choose to pursue MBA or any other so-called “further education” programs right after my BBA. MBA is not an accomplishment in itself and therefore, not a matter to boast upon. My philosophy, boast upon something that is worth it.

Google Translate now in Nepali

Google Translate has now added support to translation in Nepali language. This is another good news to the Nepali Language lovers, with the first one being "Hamro Nepali Keyboard" which lets you type in Nepali right from your Android Smartphone.

Google Translate as of now is capable of doing correct word to word translation only. The sentence translation are still quite a mess and there's a long way to go before its translation becomes satisfactory. However, it is a good news for us that Google gave us a priority and included our language in its translate product.

Type in Nepali from your Android Phone

For those, who want to type in Nepali language right from their Android smartphones, the wait is over now. Developer Shankar Uprety has developed a new keyboard which allows users to type in Nepali Unicode characters. However, unlike the PC version of the Unicode keyboard which needs accurate typing, the mobile version is much easier. You just have to type in roman language and it automatically guesses what you are trying to write. Selecting the correct guess will make your typing even faster.

Internet Problem Hinders Blogging in Nepal

It would be unfair to say that "Internet Problem" has disabled us to blog. In fact, I am thankful that I am getting something to write about. However, the unexpected outage and the resulting annoyance are not to be neglected.

We blog means we do many things online. First of all, we are tech savvy. We rely on technology, especially the Internet, too much. Whatever be the topic of our blogging, we depend upon the internet to remain updated with the latest happenings in that topic/field. We often need to do research, interact with our audience in Social Networking Sites as well as in the comments, and do many such things. So, internet is the backbone of blogging.

Can something come out of nothing?

I was thinking about "zero capital entrepreneurship". Create a business (something) without investing anything (esp. money) was the core idea behind this. However,can something come out of nothing? The answer can be explored in philosophy.

There is one and only example of something which most probably came out of nothing. And that is our universe. If you believe things should have some kind of beginning, then this universe possibly began from nothing. Or that will be your finding if you go on tracing out its ultimate beginning. Surprisingly, it has come to become everything as we know of today.

When did I ask question to Sohan sir?

The first time I spoke in the guest lecture class by Sohan Babu Khatri, I said, "Agriculture".

The guest class, entitled "Entrepreneurship", was arranged for BBA 6th semester students by our college. The first question asked by Sohan Sir regarding entrepreneurship was, "How many of you want to become an entrepreneur?" I simply raised my hand along with a few other friends of mine. I did not speak.

The second question, on the same topic, was "which sector are you going to invest in?"

How should our college life be?

Yesterday, in the evening, we two friends, me and Sushanta, were discussing about our college life. He studied +2 (intermediate level) and I’m currently doing my BBA (6th semester at the time of writing this) here in Chitwan.

We were comparing our education level, peers, and the overall academic environment with that of Kathmandu, where I did my A levels and Sushanta took some preparation course after completing his +2. When I decided to study back at Chitwan, my main reason to stay back in my hometown was my health condition. That’s why I never even tried to learn more about further education abroad. Some of my friends encouraged me to be hopeful and try applying at some universities and colleges there but I ignored them without even telling them this reason.

Dissatisfaction is a Fuel for Creativity

I was dissatisfied, especially from the pathetic earnings I made through blogging. Rather than working hard like a mule, I thought that I would be better off if I did something outside this online world. So, I started thinking about “offline entrepreneurship”.

I was looking for something that required low investment and generated moderately acceptable return. Eventually, I found ‘tomato and chilly farming’ the easiest thing to get started. There is around 2 katha of land behind my own house which I can bring into use and cultivate these crops.
