HYDRO Excellence award

Thank you. I thought I will have plenty of time on my hand with the closure of GTZ SHPP. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I am becoming extremely busy these days.

I did want to participate in your program but was both unable and felt unwilling to do so.

I was unable as South Asian Institute of Management also organized a talk program during the same window of time and they wanted me to both participate and comment on the paper being presented. I had already made a commitment to them whereas I got your invite only at the last moment. I did indicate this to you when you phoned me.

Besides I didn’t feel comfortable participating in that “ceremony” as I have strong reservation with your choice for excellence award. Gyanendra Pradhan is a nice person. I know him too well. But, as he goes about saying that Indians should take care of Nepal’s army, Hydro Nepal has awarded a person who encourages Nepal’s colonization by India.  I trust Hydro Nepal doesn’t agree with him although you have chosen him for the award. However, with this action you may have succeeded to project such an image of your organization in the public eye.

With best regards,

Dear Shree Ratna ji

We have received an article from DG, IN-SHP, China on CDM on SHP for publication in our journal.
A am attaching the paper as you are interested in CDM.

If you get time to spare, we will be interested on your comments on the article.

We missed you in the last HYDRO ceremony and talk program.
