Those who graduated from Central Department of Chemistry, Tribhuvan University Nepal now feel that there is something they can contribute back to CDC. Lately there are hundreds of Nepalese Chemists working and studying in different parts of the world. There is no alumni association of CDC yet.
Central Department of Chemistry, Tribhuvan University is the oldest institution in Nepal that started M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree courses in Chemistry. Now it has 180 students with ~35 faculty.
I came to know that former students of CDC have started collecting money to donate to CDC. They want to buy at least a multi-media projector. I know that CDC doesn't have its own MMP. It has couple of overhead projectors-OHP (assuming they are still working). Teaching and learning is still based on chalk and marker board. This is kind of shame but it is the reality of developing world. Use of multimedia and internet in teaching and learning process is vital in 21st century world. There are many things that couldn't be taught or learnt without these modern tools. When we have to give a seminar presentation-either we need to borrow the projector from others or have to present using overhead projector. There are dozens of master students who present their thesis each year, but they have to rely on OHP.
The fund raising campaign initiated by Mr Binod Pandey will help to solve this problem little bit. I hope so. Because there are lot of problems the CDC is facing. Many problems are common with other institutions and people faccing in Kathmandu. I think it would be great, if we could help one laptop with the MMP, so that they can use wherever they want.
