Smart Engineers and Dumb Managers

Smart Engineers and Dumb Managers“Why the hell do I need a manager? I can do my job. I do not need to be managed. Let me know what the heck I need to do, and I can get it done. I am tired of taking bullshit from a manager who has no idea how I get things done. And why do I need to hear from a person who failed to innovate as an engineer and jumped to a business school to get an MBA?” I hear this all the time. This is a real and strong sentiment from many of the people I work with. I am amazed by the number of people who share their frustration with me. I do listen to them with an immense interest and I am humbled that people working for me consider me as one of them.

Problems with the Institute of Engineering (IOE), Pulchowk Graduates

Problems with the Institute of Engineering (IOE), Pulchowk GraduatesI have managed, counseled and led many graduates from IOE, Pulchowk. I have seen them grow, learn, mature and even struggle. I certainly feel that I have enough information about range of graduates from the school. The graduates from the school can be put all over the map. I have seen both the best and worst side of the graduates from the crème engineering school. By the way, the school has been producing so many great graduates for so many years not because of teachers or administration.

Memories of Days Past – VI

When I was in high school (grades 8, 9 and 10), one of the things that I did that many students of my level did not do was delivering political speeches for large crowds in colleges and schools. I used to lead groups of students during political uprisings and deliver intense anti-Panchayat (one party royal system) speeches.  Those were the best experiences I had and they gave me a lot of confidence as well as assurance that a crowd can be moved in the right direction when they are led well. Three major venues where I tried to convince crowds to join the student strike and that I still remember are R.R. Campus, P.K. Campus and P.K. School.

Reunion of Tri-chandra College – 2037 I.SC. Physical Group

ReunionIt was a great experience to see college friends after 25 years. It was hard to believe that 25 years had passed since we last hung around together at the Tri-Chandra campus area. We were 60 plus students in physical group (the group of students who joined college to prepare for engineering school). We were there as either our parents wanted us to be an engineer, or we were dreaming to become an engineer. All of us had some dreams and dreams kept changing everyday as we had to go throug

That’s Why We Are Poor

“A minister’s son killed someone but the court acquitted him. The minister was charged with bribery but he was set free because the court could not gather enough evidence to put him behind bars despite being caught red-handed. The chief secretary of a political party was convicted of murder and he served jail for three years but now he is back and is serving as the general secretary. A poor fellow was beaten to death because he stood up against a minister’s son who also happens to be the ring leader of a criminal gang.
