Leadership Development

There are two types of leaders in this world. One who leads the way, sets himself as an example so others can follow and the other one is who steps back , encourages others to lead. Leadership is not something you have inbuilt when you were born , neither is it a gin-tonic-vitamin you drink. It is passion and passion merely beats talent.

If you don’t get a solution through simple and straight way, be ready to be somewhat strange – wicked. Embrace yourself, think out of the box (TOOB). Don’t be confined, always keep pushing your limits. Test yourself time and again.

Marketing management and Social management are the important aspects . Social marketing management is the service according to people’s wants and needs. Keep track on your mind, dodge those bullets that so called “problems”. Remember, ” A problem is not a problem, until you see it as a problem“.

So, lets break it down.
T E A M = Together Everyone Achieve More

F E A R = False Evidence Appearing True

Try and make sure FEAR doesn’t catch TEAM. Focus on team building and try to communicate with team players effectively. Don’t overdo yourself by thinking, because if you think-think-think you’ll never do-do-do, Think less act more.

Spot the difference ?

input = output

Input = Output

By now you might have spot the difference. The first equation means if the input is small or small thinking leads to small output, but BIG thinking leads to BIG output. So, always think BIG.

तिम्रो र मेरो माया सफल हुने कती छ PROBABLITY
टिम्ले आँखा झिम्क्यौ भने आउछ मन्न म STABILITY
त्य्सै तिमी रम्री च्यौ तिम्लाई चहिदैन कुनै CONSTRUCTION
मेरो मनम लुकेको मायालाई कसरी गरौ तिमी समक्ष्य INTRODUCTION.

तिम्रो र मेरो माया म छैन कुनै INEQUALITY
तिम्रो याद म लेखे मैले कत्ती POETRY
तिम्रो र मेरो माया को खाइ रहेछ कसैले COMMISION
यही कुरा ले गर्द हुन्छ मलाई FRUSTRATION.

हाम्रो माया नबनोस एउटा लभ TRIANGLE
डर्‍र् लाग्छ किनकी च्वाँक छ तिम्रो हरेक ANGLE
तिम्रा ति चार आँखा हुन ALGEBRA KA EXPRESSION
तिम्रो माया पौन लाई SOLVE गर्ने छु म , कुनै पनि TRIGONOMETRICAL EQUATION.

Solaborate, what’s next ?

In one of the Facebook groups, I saw some random post about solaborate being the new exciting thing and blah, blah. Did some googling and binging, and found out that it is a professional social network and collaboration platform dedicated to technology professionals & companies. Well, it did draw my attention and I signed up to explore more. It’s free to signup.

It has just launched its beta version, and promises to provide technology professionals a central place with the right tools and services to collaborate in real time both internally and externally – and solve business problems. It provides tools to collaborate, communicate and expand the ecosystem of tech minds. There are many social networking sites, tech discussion websites, forums but all of them are scattered. Solaborate brings the collaborative blatform for all users need at one place. I guess thats how its name came, social + collaborate = solaboarte.


Tech on the go as they say, you can download the Android app and take your personal, company or product profile with you. Get the Android application to stay connected with professionals, companies and products or services. The public beta version of the website has recently been released too.

After you finish up with the nitty gritty and activate your profile account you are welcomed with the sign in page and that where all the action begins with that click LOG IN. And following are the basics of what you see and how-to’s ?

1. Top Left Action Menu

2. Refined search bar

3. Drop down profile edit

4. Important Menu’s on Left side

5. Write your thought here : Post

6. Share with Facebook, Twitter and/or Linkedin

7. Filter post’s easily

8. Simple chat – make video call, audio call and even share your screen.

After the tour you will get a welcome message from solaborate and some notifications of accepted connection request you made while completing your profile.

I am looking forward to explore Solaborate.

Wallet in the Web and Mobile devices

On 29th January, 2014 (Wednesday), Nepal-Russia ICT Society (NRICTS) organized the monthly technology transfer event of January, also known as “Last Wednesday of every month event” at Russian Culture Center . This time the topic was “Wallet in the Web and Mobile devices” which is indeed the hottest issue in technology trend. After a short speech from Deputy Director Andrew, the event started.

Santosh Aryal was the presenter of Wallet in the Web and Mobile devices from Fonepay. Fonepay is a sister organization of F1Soft International. This presentation focused not only on mobile money introduction but also on how to protect money in wallet.  The audience were asked if they have familiarity with topics like database, programming, e-commerce etc. The response ranged between Yes-No-May be.

We use mobile and wallet in our day to day lives, and Fonepay found a way to combine it. It is the virtual wallet for instant use or transfer funds. Hello Paisa, esewa works through mobile sms. So, web wallet is a system online where we put money for online transactions. The answer to why need web wallet might be the following:

  • hassle free service (relief from standing in the long queue)
  • faster payment (keeps customers happy)

There are some popular wallets around the globe. They are :

  1. e-sewa
  2. paypal
  3. google wallet
  4. payza
  5. fonepay
  6. V.me by Visa
  7. Mpesa (a successful and popular mobile wallet used in Kenya)

A short video was shown in which it was shown how easily and securely a guy buys a headset using mobile wallet i.e,fonepay. Secure because it sends an encrypted sms while transaction. And also if you loose your phone in this urban K-town, your fonepay account will still be safe, because it asks for pin every time you do a transaction. Unlike credit cards, which can be swiped and used easily, in case of theft (note: its just a scenario, please do not try this)

About e-sewa

Don’t get confused if you are asked if e-sewa is a mobile wallet or web wallet. Because the answer is both, e-sewa can be used as mobile wallet and from Internet browser too. It can be considered as payment gateway also.  E-sewa works via following way:

  • Create wallet ( create an account)
  • transfer money from bank to e-sewa account.
  • Pay Online

One can use e-sewa for mobile top-up’s, utility bill payment, movie tickets etc. Also it is easy and convenient, quick, rewards, and gives discounts too. Since, no agent, no sub agent involved, discounts come on slippery slope. For example: If you do Rs. 98 recharge from e-sewa you get Rs. 103 as balance, so say yes to discount. 

How to create wallet?

Following 3 methods explains all, choose either way  suitable.

  • Go to https://esewa.com.np/ (which is the online option).
  • Type REG and send a sms at 2121 (which is the sms option).
  • Visit e-sewa zone (which is the outlet option).

The SMS charge is Rs. 0 for NTC users and Rs. 0.60 for Ncell users. The informal FAQ’s after the presentation was interesting and feedback collected answered remaining queries on the topic. You can also call at Toll Free Number of e-sewa at 11660-01-02121 for suggestion, feedback or instant reach.

Please do comment your suggestions or feedback about this blog.
Thanks and Regards,
Happy Blogging!

Teenager Wikipedia Celebrates 13th Birthday

Had i not opened Facebook today, i would have missed today celebrations.  After seeing Prakash Neupane‘s status on Facebook, i got some hint about it. But as they say little knowledge is dangerous. I was skeptical if it was a invite only event or open public technical event. All thanks to Suraj Bohra and Prakash Neupane who guided (location) and encouraged me to attend this event.

By the time I reached the hall at Siddhartha Cottage Tinkune Kathmandu Nepal, the program was already in motion. Very few seats were left so i grabbed one, but the projector’s projection was oriented on side wall. Those who had not brought moveable necks along with their body were curious.

Mr. Ganesh Paudel was already speaking and showing some video tutorial on How-To’s on Wikipedia. I knew Mr. Ganesh Paudel since Tech MashUp 2013 and couple of encounters since then through AOSC. He has always been influential though his presentations.

Main Guests of eventProf. Tulsi Diwas, Sulochana Manandhar Dhital , Lochan lal Amatya and Nama Raj Budhathoki were the  guest of today’s celebrations.  Prof. Tulsi sir not only gave a influential presentation but entertained us also. His gestures and power booster speech kept us all smiling through our the presentation. He appreciated the selflessness effort and thinking of today’s youth, which is the long-term sustainable OPEN KNOWLEDGE sharing.

Krish talking about his wikipedia journey.
Krish talking about his wikipedia journey.

Mr. Krish Dulal  the proud top contributor in Nepali Wikipedia was with his wife in the event. Both shared their experiences about their Wikipedia journey.He also shared with us that he was recently interested in writing डण्डबियो article in Wikipedia, which is National Game of Our country. It was very inspiring to know that Mr. Krish supported his wife to write articles in Wikipedia and currently is the 4th top contributor from Nepal. And encouraged us to write articles in Wikipedia, thinking of the times when we wished “If only there was an article while searching on internet and not found“.

Since, the cake was already in front of all of us, Sulochana mam thought of finishing up presentation to-the-point and quick. Meanwhile She announced to contribute her creation(book) to submit in wikibooks.She also announced that she is going to let another to be written in Wikipedia. Also, Mr. Ganesh helped Sulochana mam to open an Wikipedia account.

The veg & non-veg cake was finished as soon as the cake cutting started. Suraj Bohra and I shared the piece of cake, and it tasted exactly like a cake 😀 Hmm …. mmH. Then, unofficial session of Tech minds talking and sharing knowledge continued.

Met some of the virtual-online-facebook friends like local super-heroes Ashutosh Joshi, Nootan Ghimire, Bansaj Pradhan, Avash Mulmi, Manish Dangol, Manish Jung Thapa, Sajjan Lamichane, Prakash Neupane , on the event.

Lastly, I would like to thank Bansaj Pradhan for adding smell in the gold by saying,

तिम्रो ब्लग त खुब चल्दो राइछ , मैले हेर्ने गर्छु

and I was like,

कोइ त हेर्दो राइछ यारा मेरो ब्लग, थ्यांक यू तिमी फर्स्ट पर्सन हो एस्तो भन्ने |


Viber App on Windows 8 PC

A few days ago, while I was surfing the internet, Viber tweeted on its official account that “Viber Comes to Windows 8” and “Viber launches #Windows8 ‘Metro’ version of its #messaging and #VoIP app” and “Viber for #Windows8 launched with most of the #smartphone app’s features,”.

viber tweets on windows8 app launch


I read different links in which viber was mentioned/advertised one way or other. Some of the links were:

  • http://t.co/dQmYJc7VgI
  • http://t.co/ljFSJKeZMO
  • http://t.co/U3RLnYnr8r
  • http://t.co/Kp853DbBx5
  • http://t.co/n78rd08Q6S
  • http://t.co/T5LeG2YEPP

So after reading all those agdam-bagdam, hoo-hah’s, reviews I was eager to use it. And I went on to Windows Store to download the application(app) but couldn’t find it. I replied to one of the tweets and after interaction through official account of twitter, viber replied to me with direct links to download. Well, thanks for that.

viber mentions spandan on twitter

After downloading  13.1 MB of this crunchy messaging service via Windows Store, I can use this app as a metro version app on Windows 8. The tiles on smart screen does do magic to icons of applications in Windows 8.

Nevertheless, who doesn’t love a cross platform messaging and VoIP app which has following features:

  1. Live tiles and lock screen notifications
  2. you can pin viber conversation to home screen
  3. fun stickers and doodle

viber app chat emotions and stickers


Few days before this app was out on Windows 8, the viber out feature of viber also create quite a hype as a trending topic on internet. Almost impressing Skype users too with lower rates, world wide cheap phone calls – users couldn’t decide which Monkey clap is sharpest (jokes apart).

Still some of things i found missing was :

  • below 3G network of GPRS, notifications are slow delivered or not received at some point.
  • shows available all contacts, can’t determine which one is using the service currently.
  • no mac version app
  • app crashes when idle for long time.
  • Android phone version OK but Windows Phone version not so okay (heard through internet).

“Windows 8 is an exciting platform to develop for, and brings a whole new set of UI elements and unique functionality to Viber for the first time. We are excited to support Viber users on Windows 8 and this is part of our commitment to wide, cross platform availability.”

– Talmon Marco, CEO of Viber


Friends :Once Upon A Time

Dailed number disconnected

dON’T U GET ANY OF MY HI ‘S OR, u just ignore them.

I just don’t get it, Y suddenly there is being a GAP between our friendship

You already know jalim duniya and dusta samaj issues.

May be equillibrium maintain bhayena hola, you giving and i keep on taking ko taraju unbalanced bhayo hola, or other reasons ?

I miss the old days when we were
strangers–>friends–>good friends–>best friends–> and now back to strangers.

In old days – we used to share everything(almost) -we invaded each others boundaries (which was totally cool) -we gave each other suggestions, advice without thinking whether the other person would feel bad -we teased , we laughed, we had a fun time.

Where did everything go ?

If this was the end result, it would have been better as STRANGERS.


Orientation about AOSC for First Year Diploma Students

The presentation was prepared for First Year students of Diploma in Computer Engineering.
