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."



Podcast four: Beni to Muktinath

09 Aug

Taking a few days out of my work in Baglung back in June, my boss, Paul, Mackenzie and I did a 4 day trip to Muktinath and back from Beni. It was during the rainy season so the journey to Muktinath was in itself an adventure. I decided to make this an experimental slideshow/podcast and not add in any narration to the audio that I took during the trip. I learned a lot on how to do a better job next time. More advice is welcome!
