  • The setting of this presentation is important to be told as there are many shortcomings in this presentation which are due to constraints: some modifiable and some non-modifiable as I had to follow some basic rules:
    1. This was meant for people who had not much idea about Nepal;
    2. This was meant for just 10 minutes and not more than that.

    Because of these two factors, it seems there are some points that might not be clear if we do not keep this situations into account.
    Many aspects have not been covered in the presentation. Even if covered they might not be covered to the extent many people would be looking for. I am sorry for that as I could not present more than 10 minutes.
    Of course, the things that are spoken are not written; so it is just visual stimulation but the auditory stimulation is lacking this presentation sorry for that.
    There might be confusion regarding what is written in area and population topic as it is written (2.5) which means that Nepal is about 2.5 times smaller than Japan, so we should keep in mind that the presentation was done in Japan and the best way of making people know a new thing is to associate the new thing with the thing that they know already.
    If I have time later and if I can keep my interest, zeal and enthusiasm alive, I would like to add many more things to make this presentation a comprehensive presentation for somebody who wants to know about Nepal in few minutes.
    By the time readers will be seeing this presentation many things will have been changed so it might not be relevant at that point; I want it to be that way; while I am preparing and presenting this presentation, my country is going through really difficult phase; hope soon Nepal can abandon her harsh realities and can prosper. Hope and pray that the day is coming very soon.
