Vector Image of the new map
We’ve all seen the new image of our new map everywhere in the social media and newspapers. But the vector image of new map of Nepal has not been available anywhere till now. However, here we’ve provided you the vector image of our new map to download and use it for needed purpose.
What is vector image and how is it useful?
If you are wondering what a vector image is? Then in simple words vector image is made up of points, lines, and curves that are based upon mathematical equations, rather than a solid colored square pixels. This means that no matter how large or small or how close you zoom in on the image, the lines, curves, and points remain smooth. The benefits are:
- They are small and flexible
- It can be edited and modified easily
- No loss of quality of image when scaled in any size etc

Every time there was a disaster, we stood up with whatever we had. Back in August 2008, we just had a hashtag that went effectively viral and now we have a Complete Disaster Response System that has been deployed to 60+ Local Governments in Nepal.
I’ll start with some Team Chat:
One night, around 2:30AM, I ask ‘still not slept Shahel?’ He says, no sir I think I have found the logic now. Then I poke Sushant and he says ‘such an interesting project after so long dai, I’m liking the switch and I don’t feel like sleeping.’
Shristi and Sanjay, our Mobile Masters have been mass producing Mobile Applications. This might sound woo??
They lead the team of 7. Once assigned, its just a few moments I talk to them for collaboration. As of today while I write this up, they’re producing 10-12 Mobile Applications a day!
If you are wondering what we did this time:
- We made and updated Authentic COVID-19 modules to 15 Government Applications,
- We built a Nepali Language Covid19 Bot – Botu,
- We developed a full fledged Backend Application System with Live Tracking, Quarantine/Isolation Management, Communication Automation and Contact Tracing,
- We handed over the Integrated Systems to 61+ Local Governments (as of April 18, 2020), Free!
- We’re developing more..
A Government should have done all these..?
As a state, we are yet away from some development. It’s our duty to give, as much it is our duty to earn money via profession. As per SmartPalika‘s vision we Researched, Developed and Handed over the System for Free to 61+ Municipalities, Metropolitan Cities, etc. We’re glad to have committed the whole month of lockdown into giving for the nation.
Bibash leads the Offline Outreach and Campaigns. He gets 100+ calls a day and those all to be bridged to respective departments. If that was not a motivation, that’d certainly be a another disaster. Akshun leads Digital Outreach along with his team. His part of dedication keeps us all motivated even when its time to sleep :p
I’ll introduce you to one fine guy Nischal. Every-other in the team pokes him 10s-20s of times a day as he leads the Creatives. I once joked, you’ve become more demanding than me, Cheers!
Pravin, the finest in terms of supporting me with my Application/Server related researches. He’s an aspiring Cloud Architect and the one who gets to hold a lot of my pressure everyday. Sometimes I feel bad for him and then I get a hint of his future, so I carry on, haha.
Rajananda Jee looks after our relationship with clients. These days, I am not very frequent to communicate with him as both of his phones throw engaged tones almost every-time I call him. He’s become a busy man communicating our efforts on the market.
Cheers to Everyone!
How did it start? What made us so? Is disaster our domain?
It was around 2007, I personally understood the value of Volunteering. I used to be in a closed circle, did not like to open up unless there was a challenge. Amazingly, when I started volunteering, my motorbike started standing calm in red light signal. Evening at home I’d collect a bunch of wrappers from my pockets, those could land on street and so on.
I realized that I was being responsible. Post that, I might have enforced my teams into it, at times when I felt the need. Volunteering is for both – Giving and Enhancing your own Quality.
Later on be it #NepalEarthQuake #TeraiFlood #KerelaFlood #HurricaneIrma #HurricaneMaria and so on.. we had our tools delivered and results those would sooth you from inside. As I realize today, little things we did has brought us to the position where we can confidently lead #DisasterResponse.
Namaste! Thank You for reading. Pass me your comments below on how we can be more effective. Connect with me on LinkedIn.

It is a proud moment for us Nepalese that six young Entrepreneurs from Nepal have made the list of Forbes, an American business journal’s stories of young innovators and entrepreneur.
They are the changemakers who have been added to the list of for social entrepreneur, retail & e-commerce, and athlete. These young innovators and entrepreneurs have made their mark in their respective fields and now have set an example to the whole nation.
Here, these are the heroes who are listed in the Forbes list of 30 under 30 Asia list 2020. Lets congratulate them:
‘Starting up’ in Nepal tends to become a horrible trouble in the beginning.
BUT SUCH COULD CHANGE US FOREVER!
The Social Media is hot, and they’re hitting on #Tootle and #Pathao. The questions of legality are intact, but this is not the only discussion that should be going around. Here, a few thoughts I could not resist as we share the Industry:
‘Starting up’ in Nepal tends to become a horrible trouble, in the beginning.
We paid a horrible amount of fines and taxes for our first startup when we didn’t even have enough pocket money raised.
The current tax and company regulations are somehow understood as ‘problems’ in the #NepaliStartup Industry.
A few past decades were to #ExportLabor, the most important development resource sold for the cheapest price!
