It takes much shorter time to dismiss several good ideas than to generate one. Indifference is more discouraging than dismissal. KUFIT team’s principal concern lies in ensuring that we serve strictly academic and professional purposes, and that our genuine efforts are neither dismissed nor regarded with indifference and mistrust. Our professional, or rather emotional, security lies in our sense of being surrounded by committed, competent and enthusiastic academics. Thus, we sustain the zeal for interdisciplinary discourses and would like to thank all our contributors for their timely participation.
There should be no need to clarify that we have no mission to seek sheer name and recognition above our present positions. Since our goal is to share knowledge, rooted in the realization that positive learning transcends every worldly preoccupation against the thirst for digging gold, our work rises above any show of indifference or mistrust. Our determination to continue is a reward in itself. KUFIT embodies the desire to establish a discourse community in Kathmandu University, a community where one speaks beyond his disciplinary coterie as/to human beings who might have taken different professional routes but bear the identical perceptions of what goes around.
We have always expected only one scholarly attitude from our colleagues – the readiness to own and augment professional conversations, the zeal to tell others how ideas work where we belong and how these ideas might benefit those who do not belong. Please be a part of KUFIT sending us posts and observations, and promoting a culture of mutual growth.
