Continuing beyond the Ritual
This site has evolved from a blog named Forum for Interdisciplinary Thoughts (KUFIT) initiated in April 2011. Updating the blog was halted for some time for certain technical reasons. But now we have revived it more formal Forum for Interdisciplinary Discourse (FID) with intention to accommodate ideas/scholarship across different domains. We keep intact the initial objective “to envision fresh zeal for collective growth, and to sustain our old values for quality pursuits and services.”
The inception have underlined working beyond the ritual, with emphasis thinking “like scholars and intellectuals experts of particular disciplines” intending to “educate one another by writing perceptions of and perspectives the world as simple essays and stories.” Too big the aim might sound, but that academia should qualify for being focused to wisdom, transcending knowledge and scholarship in various domains.
We reiterate belief here: Academics should think beyond rigid jargonistic scholarships and able to communicate knowledge and wisdom to benefit wider public. Let us work towards, with simple expectations — contribution with writings and comments have some urge for communicating knowledge and wisdom.
This issue of FID features:
- Purna Nepali: “University-Community Partnership …”
- Niraj Paudyal: “Ruminating Posthumous Me”
- Bharat Sigdel: “A Letter to James Dewey Watson”
- Madhav Khatiwada: “स्वास्थ्य चिन्ताले हैरान पार्न सक्छ”
