Name and Affiliation

March 27, 2008

Born on 1 September, I was brought up mostly by my mother in, then remote, Gulmi and Arghakhanchi districts of Nepal, without electricity and motor road connections. My father used to work in a government school of India as a Hindi teacher. I completed primary school from Sarada Prathamik Bidhyalaya, Gandakidobata, Gulmi, and later joined Government Middle English School in Lohitpur, Arunachal Pradesh state of India, where my father was working as an Assistant Headmaster. Lohitpur  is a place that brought several important turns in my life. I got my 'Upanayana Sanskara' from my father in  Lohitpur. Wise men have termed this ritual in Hinduism as rebirth. I was reborn here for acquiring knowledge as an important threshold of my student life.

Brief Academic History

March 27, 2008

After completing School Leaving Certificate (SLC) from Tezu in Arunachal Pradesh, India with excellent grades, I joined Kohima Science College in Nagaland, India for Pre-university level studies.

Professional Work Experience

March 27, 2008

I obtained First Class First grade at graduate (Master of Science) level examination of Tribhuvan University, Nepal in 1989. This was another turning point in my life that drove me to choose an university level teaching job at the same university. The first batch of students I taught at undergraduate level in Tri-Chandra College in 1990 encouraged me to continue with this job.

Research and Projects

March 27, 2008

I always enjoyed teaching. And after completing Doctorate level study from Vienna, Austria in 1996 in water quality, I also realized that there is another side of life where you generate knowledge with your skills and impart the same through teaching to others. This is research. Now I am involved in research, seeking to understand humans association with rivers, river water quality and human health, and the life in rivers.
