There is India, Philippines and Brazil who has been remarkable for outsoursing destination for IT jobs. They have huge number of people working in companies, infrastructure and resources.

  1. Best Diplomacy


Nepal is in between two big, powerful nation like China and India. Being a small and independent country, Nepal is always success to keep the indentity and able to take the support from both nation. Nepal is also trying to be the bridge of China and India

Connecting the Dots in Tourism Industry in Nepal

The usual nature of Tourism sector is supported by multi stakeholders. Travel become exciting because of balance sequence and mixture of different service and probably from different service provider. Now technology has played important role to connect and cover all these things in easy and single platform.

This is the age of technology, technology play the very crucial role to inspire people to travel specific place/destination. It fuel to make the dream to do some activities in life. People get such inspiration from Social Media, News, Movie, TV shows and many other mediums. Once people decide to travel, they need to make plan for it. So here again Technology become important. Most people now a days book online.

Even while people travel they use social media to share their experience, also need apps to navigate and learn more information. It’s not going to stop here, People use technology even after they back from trip. Some people start reviewing in different platform and some start writing blogs.

Because of this, there are lots of disruption happening in tourism sector.

In 2014 and 2015 Globally, There has been lots of innovation happened in Travel Sector.

As the result in 2015

No of tourists travel in developing countries are higher than Developed countries

– Airbnb took 1.5 billion USD investment and industry took more than 5 billion USD funding this year only.

– Government has changed the policy due to new disruption in industry by technology. Now think,

What new happened in Tourism sector of Nepal in 2015?

I don’t see anything, but I saw lots of people trying. 100 of new brilliant ideas were proposed in NCELL APP CAMP this year.

Also think,

Why these Global development is not making significant contribution in Nepal?

Do you know Nepal is missing in Global Distribution System of Travel Services?

Do you know we lack the system that connect different services? Only manually things happen here.

We need the basic technical infrastructure which aims to connect different travel services in Nepal, which on the top everything we expecting as new can happen. This infrastructure is the connection of multiple small service.

Do you want to know what are benefits?

  • Be the part of global innovation
  • More jobs in local
  • Cross industry collaboration
  • New Innovations in Industry

Tourism for ALL for inclusive growth of Industry

Today Number of people traveling to developing country is bigger than developed country. If we see the trends, the reason of why people are traveling is completely different than yesterday. People want to spend some of their time in different locality where they never been, want to be part of different culture and tradition. They want to see how art is working in local communities, they want to learn how local food can cook. they also want to teach in schools and want to support what they need.

If we see the industry, Only few established tourism company is serving, and the fact is they only can’t handle this business. Good accommodation is not enough to facilitate tourist, Theywant to live in homestay also. You can’t say Mt. Everest is only enough to bring tourist in Nepal. Tourist want to see our jatra, our festival, They want to travel to small village in Lalitpur and want to plan a rice with local farmers.

All these point here to justify, Tourism is no more limited to few entity. Government can play vital role to develop infrastructures to support it, International agencies can play important role to make the competent environment, private sector is selling it to tourist, local people are serving. Every sector can contribute and earn from it. Think about School, Hospital, Transportation, local shops, local restaurant can easily facilitate the ecosystem.

There used to be the time, when Tourist confirm their itinerary before starting travel. They used to spends month to plan on everything. But today, people like to do instantly. They use google and travel portal to find what is good for today, and book instantly without talking with anyone. If you are good with technology, you can be there to connect travellers to service providers. You can be the one to suggest them what is good for them.

The benefits of tourism is wide. Tourism share our valuable cultural and environmental treasures with everyone. It make us able to share skills. It also produce lots of job.


Rebuilding the nation after Disaster: Lession from Nepal Earthquake

There are lots of things that nation has to do to prepare for preventing from loss that might occurred from disaster. In only very few cases, Government can know when it happens. Disaster cause massive loss of resources, infrastructures, lives and property but not limited with tangible things, it destroy the image of that place which marked as No Go Zone. Which impacted long last, and it can’t be restored by funding/donation support you get from anywhere.

In April 25, We faced 7.8 magnitude of Earthquake, which became the massive devastation of losing more than 8000 lives and damaged more than 300000 houses. People live with after-shock for few next months. Because of that, Nepal was the subject of news for all kind of media. The pictures showing the worst situation and pain of people were on social media and internet for collecting the support for the needy people. Media and INGOs plays important role to gain support and grief which was kind of important things for rescue and restoration. But it was not helping eventually for long run, People recognized Nepal for big earthquake.
Country, which has important role in GDP of tourism sector has immersed with No Go Zone. It seems affected when we realized there was huge downfall on number of tourist who were coming to Nepal, although nation was back to normal life. We dig into some fact and we found, Our image has been quite changed and people still used to see us as same devastated image.
We agreed, We need the program and activities which will change the perspective of people from outside. We need to rebuild the trust of world as much as before. It was not easy, now we have to fight with all the established international media and powerful INGO to show how much we are right.

The idea we came with was, Creating the online platform which will be official statement about the status of place/destination after earthquake and the story of travellers who are coming in Nepal after earthquake. We knew that people will not completely believe on us if we just say Nepal is safe to Visit. They need proof, and the best evidence can be personal stories of one of them and picture. It was not just an idea which sounds well but the team that was formed from cross sector. It was combination of Government and Private Sector supported by International Agencies. We named it www.nepalnow.org
One of the famous campaign of for NepalNow was “I AM IN NEPAL NOW” people taking selfie with playcard. The idea was adopted by industry, they asked their customer to do selfie and share in their social media with #nepalnow hashtag. So that their friend can see that their friends are enjoying their holiday in Nepal. There were also few other campaigns which seems interesting like “I WISH I WAS IN NEPAL NOW” and “I AM GOING TO NEPAL NOW”

i am in nepalnow
This is one of the actions we took after crises, It doesn’t means its only way, there were lots of effort by individual people, communities and government to revive it for another life. But I learn one lessons, everyone should do something, Crises unite everyone, it teaches how you should fight. And the end it will make you more confident to do better than yesterday.

Tourism for Poverty Reduction

Every country are standing together to solve the biggest problem for everyone, which has been significantly positioned from ages. Poverty and inequality. UN, World Bank and other international organization has building program and supporting nations to make it effective.

One of the sector which can play the integral role to fulfill the mission is Tourism.

How big is the problem of poverty? There are about 700 million people living on less than $2 a day.

The only way we can achieve the success over this is by working with partners from the public and private sectors, civil society, academia and international organization which will increase the effectiveness and impact.

There are lots of evidence that shows tourism is the effective means which will make every individual participatory and get benefited by it. Tourism creates lots of job and opportunity for all kind of people and attracting foreign investment. Tourism enables people to gain job skills and professional experience, and promotes social mobility. Tourism also drives the development of infrastructure that is very important, like airports, roads and hotels, which connect economies to global value chains and increase trade.

If you see the role, Government and International Agencies can play the critical role to develop the infrastructure like Airports, Roads, Routes, where Foreign Investors and Big Business people can invest on Accommodation, transportation service, resources which is essential for tourism facility and activities, Univesities/Academias can produce productive human resource which of course always been backbone of effectiveness of service it need to sell to customer, CSO are crucial to ensure safety, security, and standardize. SME can market, sell and sustain ecosystem. All together we can see how it get platform for scope for all kinds.

The sector is powerful job creator, providing livelihoods and pathways out of poverty for millions, across genders, ages and skill levels. According to the WorldBank Group Presidnet Jim Yong Kim, Globally, one out of every 11 jobs is linked to travel and tourism. Research shows that tourism has almost twice as many women employers as other sectors. It also employs young people at about twice the rate of other industries. Which define inclusive growth.

Go through the example, Kenya has 14 percent of national economic output and 12 percent of total employment from Tourism sector. In the Maldives, tourism makes up more than 40 percent of the economy, it is about triple what it was 25 years ago. And is a major source of government revenue, helping finance people’s health and education. All the reports shows the chart is gaining height every year and now the people are spending more money in developing countries than developed countries.

For the developing country we need to focus on how we can involve every individual in this industry regardless of their platform and expertise. We have lots of hidden and unexplored things in local places. Every individuals are enough to tell about that place, build it better and protect it from extinct. Lets collaborate together and build over it.

It’s good to thinking about preparation before joining any program. And it more make sense to the course like BSC CSIT.

1. The gap between your knowledge (+2) and your aim (BSC CSIT) is bigger than you imagine.

3. Prepare for your future rather than wasting time on exam set only, You can start doing HTML, Programming, Networking stuff, Blogging, and many other things. Which will be good for your time on studying CSIT


What Startup Should learn from AAP Victory

Winning something is never easy, there should be hardworking, passion and belief. Latest result of AAP in recent election shows the good lessons to everyone. Here i found some message for Startups.

Hard work Pay off

Arvind Kejriwal and his team have done over 700 public meetings. His MLAs have been working in their constituencies even after they quit. Which now paid off.

In startup phase, not every day might be able to pay you enough, but you should able to understand the investment of time. More you invest on your product, more it will sounds tangible.

Never Give up when you are in trouble

Many predicted the end of AAP after the result they got in General elections 2014. Their followers , major leaders and candidates leaved them. But Kejriwal said “ I will fight for the right thing”.

In case of most startups, there comes the situation like Give Up. When you fall, just get up, dust off your shirt, and move on.

Do small thing in great way

AAP start their campaign with small actions, small team. People saw them grow which helps other to belief on them.

Just reach out and explain things in simple terms to the people so that they can understand your product. Don’t sell the big jargon, and big dream.

Don’t try to buy your customer

AAP prove that the party is for common man, you can see lots of donation/contribution is coming from very general public where people are contributing from Rs. 5. So most people support the campaign freely unlikely most opposition spends lots of money on unnecessary things.

If you are honestly building the consumer products, they should feel this will works for them. Most startups spends time to selling their features and bla bla. Try to explain what pain you are healing of your customer.

Early birds get the worm

AAP and Kejriwal were preparing for change and election for long time, where there opposition was only focused on last minutes. From declaration of candidates to its manifesto, AAP was much ahead of the BJP and Congress.

If you are going to launch new product market then don’t wait for product ready time. You have to involve your customer from beginning and make them realise that you are building for people not for yourself. So they increase the trust level.

Accepting the mistake

Kejriwal put his ego aside and apologised for quitting after his 49 day stint as the CM of Delhi.

Most of the people try to prove themselves right for everything they have done, they spend most important time to explain it. So the wise decision, is to invest time in constructive things, so later people will understand what you have done was right or give you next chance.

Respect other and viewing the big picture

Opposition tried various strategies to break AAP and Kejriwal but Kejriwal stood steady as a rock. He didn’t fall in this trap and had nothing but respect for Kiran Bedi .This helped his cause.

Take seriously the competitors, don’t forget they are also same as you. You have to study and analyse them, understand. The good strategy is to be good with them. They are also there for wining the market.

Strong belief in your idea

Like Kajriwal has undoubted belief on his ideology, so he never break down and continue his fighing from his NGO Parivartan, to campaigning with Anna Hazare, to forming AAP. People who were not much convinced at first started believing AAP is the right to make it.

No matter how many people see your idea will work, if you show your hard working and progress you gain in each step. You will have increasing engagement.


Summary on Why to Start a Startup

When i heard about the class on How to Start a Startup was going to start, i was very excited. I signed up and waiting for the time. And, Finally time came. The first class was Why to Start a Startup, Sam will be starting things off tomorrow, and Dustin Moskovitz (cofounder of Facebook, Asana, and Good Ventures) will cover it.

Here are some points i learn from it.

  • If you think you can earn lots from Startup, it’s better to do other things. You should drive from your passion of solving problem. You should believe on your idea.
  • If people are laughing  at your idea, you should be happy you can be next world changer. Facebook, iPhone has similar history.
  • 4 things that make a great startup – Idea, Product, Team, and Execution
  • What ever you are building, think about your customer first: Think about what they want.
  • Remember Market at first
  • After all Startup is about team effort, so find the potential co-founder.
  • Great Idea -> Great Product -> Great Company
  • First build the product and talk the user.
  • Yes, you might need other things like Adviser, Sales, Business plan, but at first ignore all.
  • No matter how many users are you getting at first, if that small number is loving it, you have build good.
  • Latter large number of people will also like it.
  • So start with smaller number.
  • First users come manually, work close with them. Take feedback from them.
  • Think about – What do they like? What would they pay for? What would make them recommended it?
  • Don’t put anyone between you and your customers
  • Be available for every time.

The day of leaders: Mozilla Nepal Anniversary

A good leader is the one who inspire other to become better leader than just followers. I am the witness of this development here, I am connecting with Mozilla Nepal Community from starting on different way. I got invitation email from Avash for Anniversary, and immediately i thought i will not miss this time.

I couldn’t meet the team before the day, so i was out of any idea of arrangement and planning. I reached there lately, everyone were busy with their task, it looked like different team working for different things. It took while to understand the complete situation, i felt awkward for being late.

When the environment was like that, how can i stay behind. I planned to make the firefox OS App for Nepflights.com. It had been long time not doing development work, but i started to make it. I built the very basic version for my app : https://github.com/prakashneupane/Nepflights

It’s not just about what we built on that day. It’s about where we are today after 2 years and who are we now. Every Achievement is the step to move forward, i hope next year there will lot to do and lot to share…..
