Last week I was trying to make a list of activities that I am planning to do. Instead of thinking months and years ahead, I decided that it makes more sense to do a weekly plan. I remember when I was at the university and at the beginning of my career; I was choosing my activities bearing in mind on how the prospective employees would regard this on the CV. Then whilst working, the personal development plan followed a strict linear line, based mainly on the discussions with the managers at work. Plans that followed were based on the perceived weaknesses to suit the organisational nee...

After one year, I have returned to London for a week. Most people have been asking me whether I am back for good, as of course the Londoners think that there is no other city better than London. The week in London however is not a holiday break, neither is it a move back, but a necessity to organise my affairs. It was also a week of reflection to understand how I feel to return to a city where I spent many years living and working and to validate or not validate my decision to stay in Asia.

The most difficult part, at least from my personal experience is to take a first step. The second part is continuing to take further steps, even if the path is not a straight line, and it never is.

Since I started travelling across many countries, I began to understand that I am a lucky person, because I do have options and there are many people that don’t. Whether it is a woman in Cambodian countryside who has never left her village, or a girl in rural India who has no choice but to marry a man that her parents have chosen for her or whether it is a young man in Nepal whose only opti...

When I first learnt that I am the lucky recipient of the scholarship I was filled with excitement, immediately followed by a thought what is it that I am actually going to do?

I live in Nepal, a beautiful country, which is home to the highest mountains in the world. It is also one of the poorest countries in the world. It has been my home for nearly a year now after I took a bold decision to leave a comfortable well paid position at a financial institution in London. I had a feeling that after eight years in London I needed change ­– change in professional direction, change in the lif...
