SUPPLEMENTARY APPENDIX: MY PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

Raj K Pandey (MBS, MA, MPA)

(I) MY PROFESSIONAL SYNOPSIS

(A) Basic Information

(1) I started my professional career in 1990 at the age of early sixteen with: (i) Save the Children-Norway (Redd
Barna); (ii) J apan Medical Association (J MA)/School and Community Health Project (SCHP); (iii) UK Government's
Department for International Development (DFID)/Rural Access Program (RAP); (iv) United Nations Population Fund,

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) J apan International Cooperation Agency
(J ICA); (xii) Asian Development Bank (ADB)/Nepal Residence Mission. Moreover, I am working with National
Entrepreneurship Development Center (NEDC); a federated apex body of UNDP/MEDEP and MEDPAs 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.

(2) I have involved in more than a dozen of the international organizations during more than two decades of my
progressive professional careers, covering multilateral (UN Agencies - -UNFPA and UNICEF Regional Offices, ADB
Nepal Residence Mission); bilateral (J ICA Nepal Office); unilateral (J apan Medical Association); international non-
governmental organization (Save the Children-Norway); private sector (HBC Radio); and bilateral and multilateral donors
funded Programs/Projects under the UK Governments DFID and American Governments USAID cooperation including
UNDP/MEDED funded NEDC. Moreover, I feel proud as my duty station was at the Office of the Prime Minister and
Council of Ministers at the PM Office of Nepal in order to implement the Strengthening the Office of the Prime Minister
and Council of Ministers Project under the UK Aid through DFID. I am, therefore, able to understand the governmental
working procedures and practices at the central level, where I worked in a close coordination with GONs line ministries
and departments as well as commissions, judiciary, legislative and executive bodies. I have also worked in mutual
cooperation and coordination with different districts based GON headquarters, particularly with DAOs, LDOs, DPOs as
well as grassroots level urban and rural local bodies, specifically, I/NGOs, CBOs, VDCs and development partners, etc.,
while implementing different Programs/Projects at the field level throughout my tenure with previous employers, where I
actively participated as a team member for several missions, researches, supervisions, trainings, monitoring and
evaluations, needs assessments, situation analysis and many other project related activities both for the program/technical
as well as administrative/operational purposes such as internal auditing, etc. I have successfully completed fifteen different
administrative and programme related designations covering from supportive role such as receptionist to secretarial,
assistant, officer, supervisory, consultancy, acting project coordinator and up to the executive director levels in different
periods, where I implicated from administrative/operational to program/technical roles. I have worked in coordination and
cooperation among the most backward rural communities at grassroots level including urban population in approximately
forty-five districts as well as with the district headquarters and central Government of Nepal since 1990.

(B) Trainings and Seminars

(3) 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.

(C) Higher Education

P11 - 04/05/11 19
(4) 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.

(D) My Lifes J ourney

(5) 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 Gorakhpurs 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.

(6) 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.

(E) My Extra Skills

(7) 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.

(F) My Cumulative Experience

(8) 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 depends on the nature/volume of organization, annual operational turnover and number of employees.

(G) My Working Strategies

(9) 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
P11 - 04/05/11 20
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.

(II) INSTITUTIONAL EXPERIENCE

(H) Save the Children Norway

(10) My first professional career started at the age of early sixteen in J anuary 1990 with Save the Children Norway.
Consequently, I always tried to groom and train myself as the competent employee to meet the international quality
outputs, which is necessary for performance based evaluation in any international organizations. During my early teenage
and younger age, I used to work for 18-19 hours daily and used to sleep merely for 4-5 hours. I worked very hard in the
office during normal official time and side by side, I continued further education simultaneously from the night/morning
school/college, although my job and education were completely full time basis. Moreover, I used to attend several training
courses officially as well as personally to upgrade my knowledge and skills for the better performance and upgrade the
career ladders for the future. Subsequently, Save the Children Norway not only promoted me, but also I was able to learn
the human/people centric Scandinavian/Norwegian management styles based on the human welfare, which is necessary
everywhere. I was a book-worm during my early teenage so that I could not focus in any other unproductive fields in my
life. Working with Save the Children Norway for nearly eight years supported me to understand the basic functioning of
I/NGOs and Community Based Organizations (CBOs), which is a permanent asset throughout my life to clearly
comprehend the insight of I/NGOs/CBOs operations in Nepal.

(11) I visited different projects implemented districts in Nepal during my tenure with Save the Children Norway, which
enhanced my knowledge to understand grassroots level communities in many settlements of the nation. I started my career
as a receptionist and was upgraded for the secretarial and administrative assistant related activities, where I involved for
the administrative related jobs for central office as well as ten self-implemented programs/projects scattered in ten
districts. I was involved for the procurement, logistics, finance, store handling, records keeping, invoice inspections,
vehicle and property management, project visits for internal auditing and providing necessary supports for the program,
training and human resource departments as per necessary. Save the Children Norway groomed me and facilitated for my
human resource development since at the age of 17 in 1991, Save the Children Norway encouraged me to enroll in the
night school and financed my school education, too for an initial year.

(12) Hence, I enrolled in grade seven in a night school at Naxal, Kathmandu at the age of 17, which runs from 5:30pm
to 10:00pm every night even today. I used to return home from school at around 10:00-11:00pm and after dining, I used to
do school assignments up to 2:00-3:00am. Consequently, I was never second even in the night school from grade seven to
ten so that my school fee was waved for three years. I completed my school leaving certificate (SLC) with the first
division at the age of 21 in 1995, whereas I was a regular employee at the age of 16 in 1990 with Save the Children
Norway. It clearly indicates that how laborious and target oriented I was during my teenage.

(13) Moreover, I completed the intermediate in commerce (I Com) from a morning college in Pakanajol, Kathmandu,
where I used to reach at 6:00am in the morning and used to join the office at 9:00am sharp in Jawalakhel. However, Social
Welfare Council (SWC) issued a directive in late ninety to all international non-governmental organizations to work
through local NGOs/CBOs. Subsequently, Save the Children Norway, including other Nepal based several INGOs, shut-
down their self-implemented programs/projects in field and initiated to work by local NGOs. Save the Children Norway,
therefore, was on the process of redundant nearly 200 employees as well as administrative staff from central office.
Subsequently, I, including other employees, explored the job in market and I was lucky enough that I found a new job with
J apan Medical Association (J MA) prior to staff restructuring process was implemented in Redd Barna. When I was a
teenage, I had heard about the hard working intrinsic nature of J apanese people so that I also used to dream to work with
J apanese communities since it could influence my internal nature to be similar to J apanese in terms of hard work to
materialize the vision. My several years of dream eventually came true, when I joined J apanese organization and team.

(I) J apan Medical Association (J MA)

(14) My experience and know-how under Norwegian management proved very useful, while I worked with J apan
Medical Association (J MA) to implement School and Community Health Project throughout sixteen VDCs of
Kavrepalanchowk district in Nepal. I worked at the central and field offices to supervise several project related activities
and quality delivery of the services for grassroots level communities. J MA subsequently, promoted me due to my best
performance. J apanese management taught me for hard work, quality outputs and never say no for assigned jobs, despite
difficult circumstances. I was lucky enough to directly work in program/technical team for J MAs pilot project. I visited
several districts with J apanese experts to facilitate structured research and studies on several socio-economic sectors, in
P11 - 04/05/11 21
hilly and terai districts as per instructions of J apan Medical Associations headquarters in Tokyo, J apan. I was able to
directly interact with several urban and rural communities in Nepal. At the same time, I had enrolled in a morning campus
for my further education.

(15) However, due to several field visits, I was not able to regularly attend morning college from 6:00am-9:00am so
that I realized that my education was deteriorating then past. I, therefore, explored a new job in administration field,
especially Kathmandu based, and I was lucky that I found an administrative job, which was based in Kathmandu.
However, J apan Medical Association (J MA) taught me for hard working nature and I was able to understand programs,
where I also understood J apanese people, too.

(J ) UK Governments Department for International Development (DFID)

(16) My cumulative knowledge, skills, attitude, practices and working experience under Norwegian and J apanese
management proved a milestone in my career graph to look after the administration department under UK Governments
Department for International Development (DFID) funded Rural Access Program (RAP) during RAP project designing
phase. I successfully facilitated for administrative activities for two years RAP project design period, where I closely
worked with a dozens of British expectorates and international specialists for the rural access related project design
activities. The British management taught me for the flexible management style in the workplace. Further, I directly
supported for set-up of the new project, purchasing furniture and other required office materials to launch new office. I
contributed to develop the administrative forms and other necessary procedures from the project inception phase. The
entire project team members were newly recruited subsequently multidisciplinary operational and program team members
contributed their know-how for the smooth project operation. After completion and submission of Nepals RAP project
design outputs to DFID headquarters in UK, the project bridging phase was very long due to lengthy governmental
procedures, negotiations and high level policy dialogues between Government of UK and Nepal, which took few years for
finalization to initiate project implementation phase. The UK based WSP International, Oxford Policy Management and
University of East Angelia including Switzerland based Helvetas, who had jointly worked out to design RAP, formally
decided to redundant RAP project designing team and officially closed project for design phase. I learned bilateral
working procedures fist time from DFID/RAP under the UK aid.

(K) United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)

(17) I started a job at United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)/Country Technical Services Team for South and West
Asia (CST for SAWA) Countries. I was fortunate to closely work with the multilateral agency under United Nations (UN)
systems and its regional and international experts, who were based in Kathmandu. I closely worked with several
expectorates of different countries and tried to understand UN system of working procedures. However, I was in last year
of my bachelor level of education and final examination was ahead, but I had not prepared for exam so that I decided to
resign from the job to properly prepare for my graduation examination, where I succeeded to complete the bachelors in
business studies education on right time.

(L) Himalayan Broadcasting Corporation (HBC) Radio

(18) I joined radio station next day after leaving job with UNFPA/CST for SAWA Countries as the job with radio
station was not hectic as compared to UN system so that I could prepare my examination side by side. It was my childhood
dream to talk on radio since in our time television was not common as of today. Moreover, FM radio stations were
mushrooming in Kathmandu and it was an honor at that time to work with media. However, all most all radio stations used
to air commercial and entertainment related programs, but I tried to change the market trends and focused for the
production of development related issues. My socio-economic and psycho-socio related radio programs on national
burning issues were proved most popular one among intellectuals and academia group of listeners across the countryside.

(M) Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers (PM Office)

(19) However, after working for one year, I internally realized that the national anthem and power of words to
influence the general public in a hungry stomach does not work efficiently and effectively as there is no any precious
wealth on this planet than food. I, therefore, explored the place, which could feed me and my family because any places,
where there is guarantee for the quality of livelihoods and easy life styles are the mother land for us. I, therefore, applied
for a new job and I was ultimately selected to implement Strengthening the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of
Ministers Project under the UK Aid, where me and a Project Coordinator were only staff to complete the overall project
assignments through the UK Governments DFID, which was a satellite project of Enabling State Program under DFID
cooperation for Nepal.

(20) My duty station was based in Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers, where I closely worked with
senior level governments beaurocrates and political appointees. At the final stage of project completion, there was a huge
P11 - 04/05/11 22
political turmoil in Nepal, where seven changes of the government in two years were taken place and then king took over
for direct rule. The DFID headquarters in UK, therefore, shutdown the project including other two governance and
democracy related projects immediately after takeover of ruling by then king in Nepal.

(N) DFID/Enabling State Program Nepal

(21) Strengthening the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers Project was a satellite project of
DFID/Enabling State Program. After shut down of the project, DFID/ESP recruited me in order to clean-up the project
activities and formally hand over the outputs to the PM Office, where my responsibilities were to coordinate and liaison
between DFID/ESP and PM Office. I was deployed at the PM Office to represent DFID/ESP, where I was a bridging
person between PM Office and DFID/ESP senior officials until complete phase out of the project.

(O) United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF)/Regional Office for South Asia

(22) I was recruited under a special service contract in order to provide full supports for the international level
seminars/workshops and compilation of social data/information from South Asian Countries through internet/Google.
Moreover, I translated series of Government of Nepals policies and social sector related documents into English to
distribute them as working papers for international participants, who were taking part as representation of specialized UN
agencies from different countries. Moreover, I supported UNICEF/ROSAs social department for secretarial, logistical and
administrative activities to smoothly facilitate international events.

(P) United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/NDI

(23) United State Agency for International Development (USAID)/National Democratic Institute (NDI) worked for
Nepal in order to strengthen democratic process. USAID/NDI provided series of democratic and human rights related
training courses for the most senior and central committee leaders of major political parties viz. Nepali Congress (NC),
Communist Party of Nepal/United Marxist and Leninist (CPN/UML), Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) and Nepal
Sadvawana Party. Moreover, USAID/NDI also conducted a workshop for Women Member of Parliaments (MPs) from all
political parties in Nepal. The same workshop laid a foundation stone and conception for 33% women reservations in
governmental sectors in Nepal for equity and equality for all. For this purpose, all women MPs from all political parties
formed a Women MPs Caucus for an action plan in order to lobby and advocacy at the parliament as well as policy
formulation, which has been common agenda for all in these days. USAID/NDI had recruited me in providing supports for
training courses for major political parties and women MPs committee formation workshop, where I worked as translator
and training/workshop note taker/rappotear, which I successfully completed. I prepared and submitted a series of reports
and translated several documents for training courses and workshop. On the same trainings and workshops, I was able to
clearly understand the functioning of major political parties in Nepal as well as status of the women MPs in the existing
political parties at that particular time.

(Q) United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/IFES

(24) USAID/International Foundation of Electoral System (IFES) was on the process of launching its project activities
in Nepal, especially on cooperation and partnership basis with the Election Commission of Nepal. I supported to the team
of American international experts as a local consultant during very conception and inception phase to arrange necessary
meetings/interactions with different stakeholders, mainly senior government officials at GON ministries and departments,
media, election commission, civil societies, etc. Moreover, I translated relevant documents into English in to support for
project inception phase and also reported status of Nepalese politics at the time of local election during kings direct rule.

(25) Later on, USAID/IFES had offered me for Administrative Officer job, when the project was finally materialized,
but at that specific time, I had already started a new job with J ICA/Nepal Office so that I could not accept the job offer and
my relationship with IFES discontinued.

(R) J apan International Cooperation Agency (J ICA)

(26) I worked with J apan International Cooperation Agency (J ICA) Nepal Office to look after for the human security
of J ICA staff and its volunteers, who are deployed across the countryside in multiple sectors. I used to prepare daily,
weekly and monthly reports, mainly related with security situations as well as political issues to present for senior
management on weekly basis. On the basis of my security briefings and updates, J ICA Nepal Office used to report to the
Embassy of J apan and accordingly used to issue the travel advisory and security measures for J apanese citizens based in
Nepal. I also visited some districts in order to assess the local security situations across countryside, where I used to
prepare security related reports upon consultations at districts headquarters with CDOs, DPOs, media and civil societies.

(S) Asian Development Bank (ADB)
P11 - 04/05/11 23

(27) I moved to Asian Development Bank (ADB)/Nepal Residence Mission and worked for nearly four years, where I
supported administrative and operational activities. I supported several workshops, seminars, trainings, missions for
coordination and communication activities including daily clerical work for the smooth operation of ADB/Nepal
Residence Mission. I closely worked with 35 ADB funded programs/projects and government counterparts at different
ministries/departments. I also attended training courses in ADB headquarters and participated on many online training
courses under ADB system since operational activities are under direct control by ADB headquarters. I closely worked
and politely interacted with citizens of more than 50 counties, who are employed with ADB. I clearly understood the
functioning of the multilateral organizations and I went through several literatures and reports published by ADB on the
basis of its operation across Asian countries. I highly benefitted in terms of learning, while working with ADB. However,
my job was merely for three years fixed-term basis, but additional one year was extended for me.

(T) UNDP/MEDEP/NEDC

(28) I am working with National Entrepreneurship Development Center (NEDC); a federated apex body of
UNDP/MEDEP and MEDPAs fifty-three districts 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 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 are executed
by Government of Nepal (GON)/Ministry of Industry.

(III) MY PERSONALITIES AND LIFE STYLES

(U) Extroverted Personality

(29) Openness: My general inherent personality traits keep on changing from extroverted to introverted, which depends
on natures and background of the target audience and subject matters for discussions. I am a very liberal minded,
democrat, independent, honest, talkative and extroverted person and share my state of mind with the circles of influence
and concern. I often trust people easily, but they exploit my gentleness, soberness and softness for their own vested
interests, which sometimes makes me sad. I prefer simple life with the better human capital for own inner satisfaction
purpose. I respect women/men who are gentle and liberal, although I prefer straight forward persona and speak of mind.

(30) However, I disgust liars, hypocrites, arrogant and sadist persons as they are good for nothing for others since they
act as the emotional terrorists for others. I am extremely transparent and I do mostly speak-out of my mind. I am honest in
dealings and do not like hanky-panky nature from others, too. I am very much gender sensitive person and highly respect
the women for their inner royal qualities.

(31) Hobbies: I review diversified literatures, especially books on philosophy, management, spirituality, development,
sociology, psychology, economics, politics and generalized news and views on national/international issues on daily basis.
I often watch movies - - documentaries, arts and commercial films. I mostly listen all kinds of music from western to
eastern. I like to travel new places with likeminded friends for exposure from different ethnicities.

(32) Attributes: I am completely self-disciplined, self-made, self-developed and self-directed person without guidance
and mentoring from anybody in my entire life. I dreamed, visualized and worked hard to materialize my visions, goals and
aims, which made me active, laborious and confident to cope difficult challenges and circumstances in the course of my
life. On the other hand, when I was in my early teenage and younger age, I used to work exceptionally hard both for my
professional career and education. I was able to work up to 18-19 hours daily in those struggle days and used to sleep
merely 4-5 hours. Hence, I continued full time job and education simultaneously. However, when I get leisure time in
these days, particularly during weekend, I enjoy for laying on bed; traveling around countryside; reading newspapers;
listening music; working in computer for writing something; dine delicious meals; chatting, sharing and joking on generic
issues with my family members, especially two sisters and old mother; reviewing literature/reports; and watching latest
movies/TV with family members.

(33) Strength: I am determined laborious person for my set goals, which usually makes me feel exhausted and burnt-
out. Consequently, I can hardly get pleasures from the ground reality in case of failures in hard work. I am, however, not a
perfect household manager, particularly for cooking, laundry, ironing and other domestic work as I have never practiced
such activities in my life due to sufficient love and take care rendered by my mother/sisters, although I am organized and
well managed person at home.

P11 - 04/05/11 24
(34) Bad Habits: I often prefer non-veg meals (mutton/chicken/fish) that I must control as far as possible. I am lazy
person for the regular exercise, which I must improve soon. I prefer for an informal academic knowledge sharing with the
likeminded friends in different subjects, but I can hardly manage free time for friends and social circles. Consequently, I
mostly feel loneliness so that I interact with books and media to avoid my emptiness.

(IV) MY FAMILY BACKGROUND

(V) The Community Root

(35) Aryan communities across the Indian sub-continent had migrated from present Middle East, especially from
current Persia and Iraq. Consequently, existing Brahmin/Chhetri communities, who presently dwell throughout Nepal,
arrived routed through the eastern and western parts of Indo-Nepal boarders. Pandey community also had entered towards
territory of present Nepal from Nainital, India in approximately sixteen century and settled down in the western regions,
which were different minor kingdoms under several rulers around 240 years ago in the history of Nepal. The origin of our
family roots/forefathers is around the periphery of Palpa/Gulmi/Gorkha districts, who had served different independent
minor kingdoms and rulers across the country, particularly for the army and priest professions, and contributed for the
unification process of the present unified country.

(36) However, younger generations in the modern unified Nepal, selected several occupations and initiated to migrate
in different places all over the country and scattered around the world in search of better livelihoods and quality of life. I,
therefore, was also originally born in Gulmi, however, I was also grown-up in different places of Nawalparashi, Lalitpur
Kathmandu and some places of India, which is part of every human being in the course of life.

(W) Social Background

(37) Regarding my social background, I am single (never married), yet; Chhetri (father Pandey and mother Basnet);
date of birth 17 April 1974; aries in western but tiger as per Chinese calendars; Kasyap Gotra; 60 kg weight; height 5'3'
with fair complexion. I am only son with two married and one single sister including 75 years plus old mother. Our father
used to be local level politician in Susta VDC during his youth up to 1970, which is nostalgia for us in these days. On the
other hand, he used to be an Indian retired army with the pension from India and mother is housewife. They both used to
live in hometown (Tribeni Bazaar, Nawalparashi) to look after home/land and quarterly used to visit us as well as
collecting pension from Indian embassy in Kathmandu. However, our father expired in 2012 at the age of 75.
Subsequently, my old mother is currently living with us at J awalakhel, Lalitpur. Our two older sisters have already settled
down in Kathmandu, but I and my small sister have not tied a social knot, yet.

(X) Economic Background

(38) I represent working class economy--I must work for my own as well as family members livelihoods. Currently, I
have some hundreds of books in the name of visible property in my own name with a four-roomed cemented home with
the tropical based fruits garden in 3.5 kattha of land including some pieces of farmland (1 hector =1.5 bigha =30 kattha =
20 ropani) to produce rice, wheat, maize and cash crops in the tarai belt of Nepal--Tribeni Bazaar, which is situated at
Indo-Nepal boarder, near Bardaghat, Nawalparashi, Lumbini -- which is an outcome of purely my personal incomes!
However, three local families are looking after these properties.

(Y) Values for Life

(39) My father (Pandey Chhetri) was an Indian retired army and all my three maternal uncles (Basnet Chhetri) also
were involved for Indian army background. Moreover, our traditional family backgrounds, both from father and mothers
side majority of young males, were conventionally implicated for Nepal army service directly under the royal regime from
several generations. Subsequently, Pandey and Basnet are considered to be the traditional friends in Nepalese politics and
they were given the title of Kaji, which is equivalent to the ministers in the history. Moreover, then king, who unified the
present Nepal, had also encouraged his subordinates for the matrimonial relationships between Pandey and Basnet
communities at that particular time, which is in practice even today. My mother is also highly influenced by the family
roots and army backgrounds of her male family members, especially her grandparents, father and brothers. As a result, my
mother groomed me and my sisters under a strict social disciplines and clear value systems for life. I am, therefore, self-
disciplined and guided by certain core values and norms in life - - never give up challenges, but fight for target - - due to
the direct influence of the parental army backgrounds from several generations in my family members blood.

(Z) My Childhood History

(40) Prior to my birth, my father was able to secure the army pension in his middle age due to a minor injury on his
hand. He had invested his lifes entire incomes in acquiring properties in Susta VDC, Nawalparashi district, which is a
P11 - 04/05/11 25
conflict territory between India and Nepal even today. Moreover, then Government of Nepal had also distributed free land
to migrate hilly communities in the plain land under fifteen resettlement programs in some terai districts in early sixty.
However, my mother and her all children were in the native district in the inherent property of our forefathers, where my
sisters were growing-up under direct mentoring of our mother. However, my father wanted additional children, especially
sons to manage his newly acquired huge chunk of land and properties in terai and also ensure for secured future through
sons during his elderly age, which is a common phenomenon in the developing counties. Consequently, with the verbal
consent of my mother, he tied a social-knot with the second wife to produce sons and fortunately he was blessed with four
additional sons from my second mother. However, later on, I was also conceived in the womb of my mother as a second
son of my father, who contributed nine children from two wives in mobs of seven billion plus population on this planet.

(41) Moreover, my father was a local influential leader and an opinion former in his station during his youth as he was
a highly knowledgeable army with the pension from India including some exposures to the outside world as compared to
other villagers in those days. He was able to manage and influence the local politics and coordinate with the district
headquarters so that local illiterate people used to be his blind flowers as he was also an affluent person in the entire Susta
VDC as compared to backward people. However, the time is the greatest decision maker in our life, which can completely
alter the course of our life, does not matter, we like it or not. The greatest natural disaster, caused by the Narayani river
flood, in early seventy in Nepal, made all dwellers of Susta VDC totally home and landless and local people became
overnight hopeless due to an unexpected will of the super natural forces. Albeit, then Government of Nepal relocated and
resettled all sufferers in different localities in Nawalparashi district, although those unfortunate people were never able to
overcome from their poverty line and the course of life of our all family members altered forever for struggles, which
reversely affected for the whole fate of mine and other siblings as well as the same natural disaster totally changed our
stations, priorities, values, life styles and everything since we cannot go against the nature/time/God.

(a) My Struggle for Survival

(42) As a result, time-to-time, my school education used to be interrupted as I was in the economical struggle phase
from the very early childhood of my life. I supported my own living from the age of 10, when I had independently started
a tiny-shop without acquiring even a rupee seed-fund from my parents, which makes me feel proud now. Albeit, it might
be the demand of those difficult reversed circumstances and negative fate of my own life, I went through several hardship
moments caused by the financial crisis for the survival in my life. However, I acquired a million dolor lessons to be
flexible and accept the challenges even in the reversed situations in the course of life, which is a great lesson for my entire
life to cope the difficulties until our death. A person can be better understood at the time of critical moments since how to
survive during miseries is the best education, which none of the universities can taught us.

(43) I left my hometown at the age of 10 and started to work hard for the envisioned dreams in life: finding a source of
income for livelihoods, improve the quality of life and acquire an education to use as a means to eradicate financial
hardships caused by the lack of economic resources in life, when I had merely completed class 6 at the age of 10.
However, immediately, my mother and sisters also joined me and we collectively started a struggle for the survival at the
periphery of J awalakhel, Lalitpur district. Up to the age of 16, my formal education was totally discontinued due to the
first priority for my own as well as family members livelihoods, albeit I used to self study different kinds of books for
whole mid-night on daily basis and updated knowledge about the burning issues in order to portray myself as an
intellectual for outsiders with an expectation that people will respect me, if I am knowledgeable, rational and logical in any
debates and discourses, which made a strong positive image and impacts among locals.

(44) Consequently, books and other source of knowledge/information unconsciously have became my best friends even
today so that reading habit has been converted as a part of my daily life. We are what we repeatedly feed our minds. I have
regularly fed my mind with the knowledge and information throughout my life. I am, therefore, often able to convince
most of the people through rational discussions on selected topics. Hence, many people, who are in my close networks and
social circles, enjoy my company, and they approach me and seek for an appropriate solution of their problems, which has
taught me that we must prove our capacities in front of the people. Nobody will search you without any specific causes,
but if you are a proper solution of their problems/needs, they will definitely approach you and seek solutions from you
even at your retirement life as you are pleasure giver for them by properly mentoring people.

(45) Finally, my mother and father happily reunited after few years of physical separation in exploring the better
economy for quality of life. After a decade of my career, I constructed a home and purchased a piece of land for them in
my hometown so that both my parents were satisfactorily living together in their elderly age. However, the nature is the
only biggest decision maker of our fate. My father expired due to asthma at the age of seventy-five in 2012, despite better
medical efforts to save him.

(46) 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
P11 - 04/05/11 26
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.

(V) SUPPLEMENTARY ANNEXES

Appendix (A) The Ultimate Truth of Life

(47) I reached to the east and I reached to the west. I reached everywhere for the sake of survival. When I reviewed my
life at a point of time; suddenly, I realized where I have exactly reached, at last. When I used to dream during my innocent
childhood; when I was on unconditional love with my near one and the dear one; when I was in a total freedom of choice
amid the nature; I naively used to thought, oh, life is really a heaven. But, when the course of my life changed; when I felt
extreme lonely among the mob of the people; I thought, I had had acquired everything; but, what exactly I have acquired
in my real life. I was merely survived for an elusive life. I have lost several things in my life. I have lost inner peace and
the happiness of my soul.

(48) My precious onetime life has been vanished into the illusion. For the sake of running behind the mirage, but to get
nothing. I have lost everything, which my life had naturally given to me. I have completely forgotten to happily survive
my life. As I have unnecessarily worried and focused to learn how to survive. I don't know where my natural happiness
has gone, forever. I have totally forgotten to laugh and smile. While running for the sake of getting physical comforts; I
have completely forgotten to live my natural real life. I might have been noticed as an achiever for the outsiders; others
might have considered me as a great persona. But, while I thoroughly scrutinized myself from the bottom of my soul,
suddenly, I realized: what I have exactly achieved in the total race of my life? And, where I have eventually reached in
the course of my life because life is simply an illusion and we all are running behind the mirage that we never get.

Appendix (B) The Eventual Destination in Life

(49) Why do you worry without cause? Whom do you fear without reason? Who can kill you? The soul is neither born,
nor does it die. Whatever happened, happened for good; whatever is happening, is happening for good; whatever will
happen, will also happen for good. You need not have any regrets for the past. You need not worry for the future. The
present is happening now. What did you lose that you cry about? What did you bring with you, which you think you have
lost? What did you produce, which you think got destroyed? You did not bring anything - - whatever you have, you
received from here. Whatever you have given, you have given only here.

(50) Whatever you took, you took from God/super natural forces. Whatever you gave, you gave to him/her. You came
an empty handed, you will leave empty handed, too. What is yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday, and will
belong to someone else the day after tomorrow. You are mistakenly enjoying the thought that this is yours. It is this false
happiness that is the cause of your sorrows. Change is law of the universe. What you think of as death, is indeed life. In
one instance, you can be a millionaire, and in other instance you can be steeped in poverty. Yours and mine, big and small
- - erase these ideas from your mind.

(51) Then everything is yours and you belong to everyone. This body is not yours, neither are you of the body. The
body is made of fire, water, air, earth and ether, and will disappear into these elements. But the soul is permanent: so who
are you? Dedicate your being to God. S/he is the one to be ultimately relied upon. Those who know of his support are
forever free from fear, worry and sorrow. Whatever you do, do it as a dedication to God. This will bring you the
tremendous experience of joy and life-freedom forever.
