Roadmap for rebuilding Nepal
'Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Commission', chaired by the new Prime Minister, can be constituted to lead the country's rebuilding efforts. This Commission should be separate from the National Planning Commission, which deals mainly with the medium and long-term development plans. Under this Commission, the government should establish a 'Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Management Authority' (RRMA) with full implementing power. This Authority should be headed by an independent, experienced and competent personality, who could be chosen from inside or outside the country. In order to guide and advise RRMA, an Advisory Council shall be constituted which will comprise of leaders from major political parties.

On-air during earthquake
I have learnt how closely radio is attached with public and a commendable role it can play during disaster. Being on-air during the earthquake offered me valuable insight into radio and journalism.
Volunteers in disaster management
Government should acknowledge the contribution of volunteers and coordinate with them for better and efficient result.
Corporación Dinant is not driven by corporate greed
Dinant is not in conflict with the genuine peasant associations of Honduras: Our African Palm plantations support thousands of sustainable jobs with company pensions and compensation levels well above the national minimum wage; they have also significantly contributed to improving skills, education and health. We recognize the value and importance of engaging peacefully and transparently with those that hold different viewpoints and believe that we can find some common points of mutual interest.
A letter to our Honorable Prime Minister
Lighting up the capital was not an end but a beginning towards infrastructure development, implementing the power treaties, scaling the economies upwards, and to write the constitution on time.
