Congratulations on the formation of UINSPIRE Nepal! Let it be the source for all your of Nepal to get out of desperation and find a cause to dedicate life, let it not be a forum for career development but a synergy dedicated to the Nation. Remember the famous call of JFK - "Ask NOT what the country can do for you, ASK what you can do for your country. Let UINSPIRE bring into its network at least 2 young professionals for all rural municipalities and 2 from each ward of urban municipalities in the next three years. With Messenger, Skype, Viber, WhatsApp, and WeChat, this goal is perfectly achievable. Let there be no hierarchy, only relative excellence should prevail. I wish I were 30-35 years of age like many of you to be able to contribute to this organization more meaningfully. Nevertheless, my soul and heart is with you and I promise at least to try to put my all wisdom and energy pro bono to be ready to serve all your commands as much as I can. May UINSPIRE Nepal flourish to serve as an example to the world, to the region!
