Shubha Bala

Shubha Bala (Collective Campaign for Peace - COCAP): Shubha was born and brought up in Toronto, Canada. She completed her undergraduate studies in computer and electrical engineering at the University of Toronto. After graduation, she worked for three years as a business consultant in a software firm. At the time of her fellowship she was studying for her Masters in International Affairs at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs with a focus on economic and political development, and media. After her fellowship, Shubha wrote: "In the development sector, I reminded myself of the practical limitations in achieving ones desired outcomes, and the need to work within the environment presented to you. I also re-observed that each country has unique limitations to be addressed. I gained huge insight into transitional justice issues, as well as the overall political climate in Nepal. I questioned the impact of donors and free labour from the West in developing countries that have traditionally been extremely donation and volunteer dependent."



Cyber cafe guidelines 101

12 Jun

I have been struggling with the lack of Internet connection in Baglung, and how difficult that makes it to be an advocate, or even secure resources for grassroots projects. In preparation for my 2 days in Kathmandu, I told my mother that around 6 pm, I would finally be online to talk to her. This is the conversation she later emailed me, informing me she was worried someone had kidnapped me. Let this be a lesson on the importance of logging out of msn from a cybercafe!
