Introducing myself and my journal: Krishi Patrika

About Me:
I am contributing as a co-editor of "Krishi Patrika"- an agricultural newspaper published fortnightly in Nepali language from Nepal. As you are well aware that Nepal is and agricultural based poorest country in the world. Out of the total population (28 million), over 80 percent are farmers and more than 90 percent women support in farming and agricultural activities. The status of farmers as well as women is very miserable. Also, we don't have any newspaper publishing news about agricultural activities and farmers voices. So we formed a small group and are publishing agricultural newspapers targeting to rural farmers, since last 16 December 2007.

I hold Massters degree and also studied agriculture. I am tryining to create awareness among rural farmers especially women and raise problems faced by the farmers as well as publish lessons learned by the farmers for its replications. This "Krishi Patrika" is only one of its kind in Nepal published from private sector. With poor resources we are trying to give voices to the voiceless poor farmers and women. We are not a political organisation and also not for profit making organisation.

My Vision for the Future:
