    • Authors: Amin Palikhe, Nabin Bahadur Adhikari, Sudan Kumar Mulmi
      Pages: 1 - 11
      Abstract: This study aimed to find the factors that motivate students to study tourism in the colleges of Nepal and to identify selection patterns for studying tourism subject through analysis of socio demographic determinants according to gender, study level and college type. This study is designed as a descriptive and analytical study based on primary data. A total of 124 respondents collected from Kaski district as data input during November 2018 and data are collected using structure questionnaire. Chi-square test is used to determine factors associated with studying tourism in colleges of Nepal according to gender, study level and college type. Cronbach’s alpha has been used to test reliability and validity. The result shows that gender has no association with all motivational variables for studying tourism in colleges of Nepal. Study level is associated with motivational variables such as learning value, self-efficacy, interest and emerging subject. College type is associated with motivational variables such as learning value, self-efficacy, social status and interest (p<0.05). This study is particularly relevant for tourism subject teaching colleges and can help them for developing strategies for promotion of tourism subjects. Colleges studying tourism subjects must focus on the various opportunity areas that can be achieve by studying tourism subject to attract students.

  • Determinants of Households’ Adaptation Practices against Climate Change
           Impact on Off Farm Activities in Nepal

    • Authors: Ananta Raj Dhungana, Purna Bahadur Khand
      Pages: 12 - 25
      Abstract: Study on adaptation practices against climate change impact in agriculture sector have been explored extensively globally but adaptation practices against climate change impact on off farm activities are not studied in detail. This study aims to analyze the determinants of households’ adaptation practices against climate change impact on off farm activities in Nepal. It utilizes the data generated from nationally representative samples of National Climate Change Impact Survey, 2016 conducted by Central Bureau of Statistics. Total sample size of this survey was 5060 households. But for this paper, total of 4114 samples were considered. Binary logistic regression analysis was carried out to analyze households’ adaptation practices against climate change impact on off-farm activities in Nepal. Most of the respondents are male of age 40-54 years, from non-Brahmin/Chhetri caste/ethnicity, illiterate, with lowest income Quintile, from tropical climate zone and without getting any services from agricultural service center. Females ageless likely to have adaptation practices towards off farm activities (started more off-farm activities; shifted to non-agricultural employment; and temporary out-migration) in compared with male. Non-Brahmin/Chhetri caste/ethnicity with reference to Brahmin/Chhetri is the determining factor for the adaptation practices (shifted to non-agricultural employment; and temporary out-migration). Status of receiving any services from agricultural service center, years of experience in agricultural sector and sub-tropical climate zone with reference to tropical zone are the common determining factors for households’ adaptation practices towards off farm activities against climate change impact in Nepal.

  • Inter-generational Mobility in Occupations of People in Rural Nepal

    • Authors: Badri Aryal, Durga Devkota, Naba Raj Devkota
      Pages: 27 - 42
      Abstract: This paper attempts to investigate the causal factors for occupational variation between father and son using Nepalese data from rural context. A well-structured questionnaire schedule was used to collect information from a total of 385 father son pairs in Gajuri rural municipality of Province No 3 in Dhadingdistrict of Nepal. Information was collected from those father and/or son, the senior son of a father who was married at the time of interview and whose father was alive. Three sets of variables were isolated as having an effect on the occupational relationships between father and son; father's characteristics, son’s characteristics and household characteristics. Findings revealed that three fifths of all sons adopted occupations different than their fathers. Chi-square statistics revealed a statistically significant relationship between occupation of father and occupation of son revealing a high level of occupational persistence in between generations. Binary logistic regression revealed that sons of the fathers holding salaried job/business and trades as well as those having wage labour are more likely to catch father’s occupation than the sons of farmers. Among all explanatory measures, sons' own level of education and migration experiences are powerful determinant for whether son adopts occupations different than their fathers or not.

  • Customer Satisfaction towards Paragliding Services in Pokhara

    • Authors: Bikash Thapa Magar, Deennath Lamichhane, Surya Mohan Adhikari, Dibbya Laxmi Chalise, Shilu Chalise
      Pages: 43 - 59
      Abstract: Customer satisfaction is an important aspect of successful business. So, every business should maintain a good relationship with its customers to enhance loyalty and increase profit. Many tourists participate in paragliding in Pokhara. Its revenue contribution is Rs. 300 million to Rs. 500 million per year. This research aims to assess the overall satisfaction of customers in paragliding through measurement of perceived service quality and perceived service value applying descriptive and analytical methods. The former is measured by the constructs: Reliability, Assurance, Tangibility, Empathy, and Responsiveness while the latter is measured by the constructs: Price, Scenery, and Thrill. The landing site near Phewa Lake was chosen as the study area. A convenient sample of 150respondents was selected for the study. Questionnaire was constructed to elicit primary data on independent variables and was evaluated on five-point Likert Scale. Focused group discussions supplemented the study. Mean score of different variables revealed that the contribution of perceived service quality to customer satisfaction is higher than that of perceived service value. Among the four significant variables- Reliability, Price, Scenery, and Thrill, the Reliability has higher contribution in Perceived Service Quality measurement. Similarly, the Price has higher contribution in Perceived Service Value Measurement. Overall, the level of satisfaction in paragliding among customers is found good. Further studies are needed to establish causal relationship between customer satisfaction and other demographic variables.

  • Extended Spectrum β-Lactamase Producers in Mobile Phones and Nosocomial
           infections: Risk Factors for Infection Control Practices

    • Authors: Binita Koirala Sharma, Keshab Sharma
      Pages: 60 - 74
      Abstract: Extended Spectrum β-Lactamase Producers (ESBLs) isolates contaminating the healthcare workers (HCWs)mobile phones may cause threat to not only the life of hospital staffs, patients and visitors but also to the people in the community. This study was conducted to determine whether mobile phones of HCWs harbor ESBLs with their antibiotic susceptibility pattern. Isolation, identification and antimicrobial susceptibility test of bacteria were done using standard microbiological procedures. Further screening and confirmation of ESBLs were done according to Clinical Laboratory Standard Institutes (CLSI) guidelines. Out of the 100mobile swab samples cultured, 97 (97%) showed bacterial growth. Frequency distribution of the total 67isolates showed that the most prevalent Gram negative bacteria identified was Klebsiella spp 29.85%,followed by Escherichia coli 22.38%, Acenetobacter spp 14.93%, Proteus spp 13.43%, Pseudomonasaeruginosa 8.96%, Enterobacter spp 7.46% and Citrobacter spp 2.99%. The prevalence of ESBLs among the Gram negative isolates in this study was 29.85%. The most effective drug of choice were Amikacin, Nitro furantoin and Imipenem for many gram negative isolates. These results showed that HCWs' mobile phones were contaminated with various types of pathogenic multi drug resistant microorganisms. Mobile phones used by HCWs in daily practice may be a source of hospital acquired infections in hospitals. Indeed, HCWs mobile phones contaminated with ESBLs increase the risk for infection may be the key factor in epidemiology of ESBLs producing bacterial infection not only in a hospital setting but also in community. Therefore, regular surveillance, disinfection with suitable agent at regular interval would minimize the colonization and transmission of pathogens like ESBLs.

  • Social and Psychological Experiences of Senior Citizens to Cope with Their
           Lives

    • Authors: Kalpana Paudel
      Pages: 75 - 86
      Abstract: Aging is a normal, inevitable, biological and universal phenomenon and is the outcome of certain structural and physiological changes that take place in different parts of the body as the life years increases. During ageing process, coping with the situations of everyday life and meeting its demands become more difficult than before. This study mainly focused on the experiences of senior citizens to cope with their lives. A descriptive qualitative case study design was used to explore the experiences. Twenty-five senior citizens from Pokhara Aged Shelter were selected in the study. In-depth interview was used to collect primary data. Qualitative data was recorded; transcribed and thematic analysis was made. Elderly people express themselves as useless and worthless. They think that they have nothing to contribute to social life and the community. Social activities are reduced after ageing. They have fear of pain, disability, decline, loss of control and death and also have feelings of anxiety, fear and powerlessness. Elderly people have negative feelings such as emptiness, sadness, resignation, frustration, loneliness and regret because of being alone, limited activities or troubles to cope with ageing. They feel discouraged and helpless. During the ageing process, they give up daily activities gradually. Elderly people missed having somebody to share their small daily experiences. Family is an important factor that contributed to the elderly people’s ability to cope with. Hence, the issue of senior citizen and old age should be addressed appropriately as other social problems in society.

  • Effects of Stock Market Development on Economic Growth in Nepal

    • Authors: Krishna Babu Baral
      Pages: 87 - 96
      Abstract: Financial intermediaries and stock markets are important for the economic growth. The relationship between stock market development and economic growth has been extensively studied in the recent years. This study used analytical research design that involves bi-variate analysis by using simple regression model to examine the relationship between stock market development (measured by size and liquidity of the stock market) and economic growth (measured by logarithm of capital GDP at constant price) in Nepal during the period 2007-2017. Secondary data were collected from the official websites of Ministry of Finance (MoF) and Nepal Stock Exchange (NEPSE). It is assumed that economic growth is the function of stock market development for the purpose of data analysis. Empirical results of this study indicate significant positive relationship between economic growth and stock market development. Moreover, stock market development explained considerable variations in economic growth of Nepal i.e. size of the stock market explained 57.7 percent, and liquidity of the stock market explained 41.6 percent variation in economic growth of Nepal.

  • Exploring Teacher Traits in Classroom Practices

    • Authors: Nabaraj Neupane
      Pages: 97 - 108
      Abstract: Teachers play a key role to proliferate the educational system as they are at the implementation level of educational acts, rules and regulations. Their traits are at a flux because of temporal and contextual variations encountered in different settings. This context led this study to explore teacher traits in real classroom practices. To achieve this goal, phenomenological research design, as a type of qualitative inquiry, has been adopted. The population of the study comprised the stakeholders of Bachelor of Mountain Tourism Management (BMTM) programme conducted in Janapriya Multiple Campus, Pokhara. The tool for collecting information was non-participant class observation, in which three classes were observed. The results of the study reveal that teacher traits can be measured by triad roles like professional, administrative, and social dimensions. The study implies that teachers should be aware of these triad roles; and the current pedagogical trends and practices.

  • Shattered Dreams and Stolen Childhood: A Study of Child Labour and Child
           Rights in Restaurants and Hotels of Pokhara, Nepal

    • Authors: Prakash Upadhyay
      Pages: 125 - 135
      Abstract: Nepal is committed to end child labour expressed by the ratification of ILO convention and its national plan of action for children and Master Plan to end child labour. However, the wicked problem’ of child labour is increasing at an alarming rate in urban areas. New hotels and restaurants have been opened and along with it a new way of child labour exploitation has emerged in urban centres. Most of the workers in restaurants/hotels of Pokhara are children. The employers of such business prefer child labour as they are cheap and can be easily exploited. This study attempts to determine the extent to which child labour constitutes a violation of child rights. Pedestal on theories of exploitation and structural-functionalism the study result reveals that condition of child labourers is disgraceful with a shattered dream and stolen childhood—a result of family dysfunction and child rights violation by employer that has thwarted the opportunities for healthy adulthood under a vicious cycle of deprivation, abuse and exploitation. Amid noxious relationship between child labourer and the employer, child labourers face violence and sexual harassment by employer, senior staff and customers. Heavy workload, trouncing and dragging by hair and ill-treatment are the common violence faced by child labourer. Most of the employers are ignorant of child rights. It is a paradox that child labourer is valuable for employer but the life of child labourer is worthless. Most of the child labourers are willing to rehabilitate.

  • Impact of Trade Liberalization on Economic Growth of Nepal

    • Authors: Ramesh Bahadur Khadka
      Pages: 136 - 148
      Abstract: Trade openness has been considered as an important determinant of economic growth. It has been witnessed during the past couple of decades that international trade openness has played a significant role in the growth process of both developed and developing countries. International organizations such as Word Trade Organization, International Monetary Fund and World Bank are constantly advising, especially developing countries, to speed up the process of trade liberalization to achieve high economic growth. In this context, this paper aims to analyze the impact of trade liberalization on economic growth of Nepal. For this purpose, all the data regarding gross domestic product, export, import, total trade, trade balance of Nepal from 1980 A.D. to 2013 A.D. published by World Bank (2014) were used. Both descriptive as well as inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. Correlation analysis was used to find the correlation between the selected variables. Multiple linear regression analysis was carried out to analyze the impact of the trade liberalization in economic growth of Nepal. Trade cost does not explain any influence in gross domestic product, export, import, total trade and trade balance. The impact of trade openness is positive for all variables except trade balance. Trade openness has influenced economy significantly; import increased with purchasing power, export also increased but service only. Therefore, there is gap in export and imports.

  • Preoperative Anxiety and Social Support among Patients undergoing Surgery

    • Authors: Sharada Sharma, Kamala Gharti
      Pages: 149 - 159
      Abstract: Most patients awaiting surgery experience anxiety. The study aims to assess the levels of preoperative anxiety and social support, determine the association of background variables with levels of preoperative anxiety and social support and to examine the relationship between levels of preoperative anxiety with social support. A hospital based cross-sectional study was conducted among patients undergoing surgery in a government Hospital, Pokhara. The study period was from September 2016 to August 2017. Total sample was 442 patients scheduled for surgery. Data was collected through Anxiety Specific to Surgery Questionnaire for anxiety and Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support through face to face interview. Ethical approval was obtained from IRC, Institute of Medicine, Tribhuvan University. Data were entered and analysis was performed with the help of the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS).The total 94.1 percent of patients were married and 52 percent had low living standard. High level of preoperative anxiety and social support are seen in 42.1 and 64.3 percent respectively. Preoperative anxiety had significant statistical association with standard of living, experience of past operation, and types of operation(p<0.05). Social support had significant statistical association with age, gender, residence, standard of living, and types of operation (p<0.05). Correlation between preoperative anxiety and social support insignificant (r = -.133, p = 0.005) at the 0.05 level. As social support increased; preoperative anxiety decreased. Therefore, health care provider should identify patients with high anxiety, encourage them to talk about their feelings and facilitate more time with their families.

  • Drug Error beyond the Hospital and Role of Pharmacists in drug Safety
           Process

    • Authors: Gulam Muhammad Khan
      Pages: 169 - 176
      Abstract: Medication related error is one of the most common error prevailing in this time. Medication error can be defined as a ‘failure in the treatment process that leads to or has potential to lead to harm to the patient. Medication error can occur from the process of ordering to the administration to the patient. Among the healthcare professionals; a pharmacist can be responsible in identification of contributing factors and reducing its occurrence. Great efforts are needed in this area, due to diversity in the types of errors, the relationship between the provider and the patient, information transfer, optimization of e-prescribing systems, the lack of adequate training in analyzing the collected data and poor practical strategies for maintaining accurate drug lists in electronic medical records. Recently healthcare professionals have started becoming aware about the risks of patients’ medication exposure. After all, still the area of medication safety beyond the hospital setting needs community pharmacy intervention to avoid malpractice claims and misled decisions in solving medication safety-related problems in the outpatient setting. Approaches like medication reviews and reconciliation, monitoring drug therapy, reporting error will help in identify and prompt the detection of errors, open productive discussions, quality control checks, and effective system-based decisions like performing risk assessment subsequently reduces the harm and risks before patient is exposed to any form of drug error.

  • Revisiting Capitalism through Social Business Model

    • Authors: Krishna Raj Bhandari, Kshitiz Baral
      Pages: 177 - 190
      Abstract: Seeing the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union gave a false hope to the proponent of capitalism that it is the only hope for the future. However, this very belief is crumbling the western societies with the rise of the populism and nationalism. Amidst this confusion, this paper revisited the published literature on social business model suggested by Nobel Laureate prof. Muhammad Yunus and added a new dimension of entrepreneurial attention suggested by Ocasio (1997). Propositions are derived on how the entrepreneurial attention increases the sustainable performance of the social business.

  • Human infection with pandemic Influenza (H1N1): A Review Article

    • Authors: Ranjita Karmacharya
      Pages: 191 - 199
      Abstract: Swine flu, also known as the H1N1 virus, is new strain of an influenza virus that causes symptoms similar to the regular flu. It originated in pigs, but is spread rapidly from person to person. Therefore, the objectives of this article are to highlight on H1N1 Influenza, its mode of transmission, risk factor, clinical spectrums and preventive ways. Studies published relevant to swine flu was searched through scientific databases like MEDLINE, Pubmed and online search engines like ‘Google Scholar’. Eligible studies involved at least one factor related to ‘influenza A virus’, ‘H1N1 subtype’, ‘epidemiology’, ‘transmission” and ‘preventive measures’ etc. Searches were limited to human only and also looked at the websites of the leading health authorities (e.g. WHO, CDC, HPA). Swine is a new flu virus that appears in human and spreads very quickly from person to person. In Nepal, the first case was detected on June 2009 after that the case is increasing day by day. In 2010 till May there were 172 confirmed positive cases, likewise on August 7, 2017 there were 10 death and 354 positive cases of swine flu in Nepal. Therefore, Government of Nepal has broadcasted awareness programs, organized seminars and meetings, to make people aware regarding H1N1 Influenza. But, it seems challenging to decrease its outbreak in Nepal because of low financial resources, low manpower, limited technology and political instability.

  • Bacterial Diversity in Aquatic Ecosystems over the Central Himalayas,
           Nepal: Progress and Future Perspectives

    • Authors: Namita Paudel Adhikari, Subash Adhikari, Ganesh Paudel
      Pages: 200 - 211
      Abstract: Nepal hosts a large area of freshwater aquatic ecosystem including glacier associated system like glacier-fed streams and lakes as well as stream fed lowland lakes. Bacteriological studies are very important in aquatic ecosystems as bacteria are the major participants in biogeochemical cycles and food web structures. This study reviewed available literature in bacteriological studies of aquatic ecosystems in the Central Himalayas, Nepal and revealed that such studies are very limited. Thus, we conclude that future research works need to proceed through the latest molecular methods with high throughput technique using multiple environmental factors in the aquatic ecosystem.
