college days
 
 
MY ALMA MATER(S)
 
I did Bachelors in Arts from Mahendra Morang Adarsha Multiple Campus, Biratnagar, Masters in Arts from Department of Nepalese History Culture and Archaeology, Tribhuvan University, Kirtipur in 1988 and Post Graduate Degree in Archaeology from Institute of Archaeology, New Delhi in 1997.
 
 
COURSES STUDIED
 
I studied Nepali literature, Sanskrit, Political Science, Economics, Nepali History, Culture and Archaeology.
 
 
MY COLLEGE LIFE
 
My college life was carefree and interesting. 
 
BEST OF COLLEGE LIFE
 
The friendly environment and teachers’ inspiration for better future were the best things at college. Meanwhile all the enjoyable tours and picnics with friends as the attitude of give-and-take without any feeling of selfishness and competition existed during my college life.
 
 
LASTING MEMORIES
 
I loved to watch movies. I used to cycle up to 12 km with double load just to watch movies and eat bhelpuri. I also remember our habit of drinking tea in college canteen with friends — but at the end we would make only one person pay the expense of whole group.
 
 
LESSON LEARNT
 
Students must respect teachers as they inspire and show you the right direction in your life. One must have feelings to help others and work together. And one must keep his words.
 
 
WORDS TO HEED
 
Time is money. So, utilise your time wisely. Have a positive attitude towards everything as you will get what you sow in life. Today’s world is full of competition. Therefore, be the best among all to get the best opportunity in life.
 
 
HOW TO ACE IN COLLEGE
 
Be hard working and have a goal to fulfil your dream. Be helpful to others. Have passion to learn without any hesitation to ask questions to the teachers and believe in yourself.
