Dr. Prakash Banjade, as an aspiring youth leader and Medical Doctoris an example. He comes from a
rather humble background from a remote village in Arghakhanchi district. He grew up without the
enjoyment of basic privileges like electricity and telephone service. But he saw his problems as
Dr. Banjade finished his higher study from Janata Secondary School, Arghakhanchi and was a brilliant
student. He also participated in inter-school speech competition. His essay entitled ‘Effect of civil war on
children’ got the second position in a regional competition which was organized by Nepal Red Cross Society
in 2003. He then studied intermediate level in general medicine at the National Academy for Medical
Science, Kathmandu and completed MBBS from Kathmandu Medical College, Kathmandu (affiliated to
Kathmandu University). Then he started medical practice and also became an editorial board member at
International Journal of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. He also worked with Amnesty International
Nepal, Kathmandu Medical College social club and editorial assistant at a journal of Kathmandu medical
college, Sinamangal Kathmandu 2013-2015.
The doctor has been actively involved in promoting access to human rights and democracy education
services to the rural community since the age of 10 years through Nepal Red Cross Society and child
rights clubs, among others. He joined United Nations Youth and Student Association of Nepal as a
general member of in 2009 and worked as a national president from 2014 to 2018. He is a firm believer
in the idea that young people are the leaders of tomorrow. “I will fight for the right of youths in the public
decision-making process around the world. I think we can, and we must, invest more in our youths
because they are the leaders of tomorrow,” shared Banjade.
He also interested in major emerging disease, research including evidence-based general medicine and
surgical practice, global health policy, medical education, health Care management in resource-limited
settings, financial supportive treatment of the poor patient. Now he is preparing for the Postgraduate entrance
examination. He invited as speaker and chair for many national and international youth conventions and
conferences as an advisor of United Nations Youth and Student Association Nepal.
He also believes that basic health facilities should be taken as fundamental rights for everyone. But the
reality makes him sad when he finds that health care is a far-off dream for marginalized and poor
people. “I am interested in medical research and new discoveries in medical science. I would like to
change the concept of health care system,” he explained. He wants to do away with the situation that
some people die of illnesses that could be easily cured but were deprived of that simply because they
couldn’t afford it. He said in any society health facilities should be made affordable because strong
nations are made by healthy people and that the world is better with such people.
If you are determined to do something concentrating all your strengths on the objective, nothing can
stop you from reaching your goal. Age, geographical location, caste and class, all become secondary in
the face of zeal and ambition.
He suggests the youth to give their best while studying. He believes reading books like Guru Saran Das’
‘The Difficulty of Being Good,’ and Stephen Covey’s ‘The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People’ can
help get useful ideas about personal development.
“Google and other search engines on the internet from which you can get lots of advice on how to
succeed in life. Good luck, of course, may have some role and that’s beyond your control. Hard work is
something that most of us need to do. But when hard work and good luck are combined with some
strategic decisions, they can lead you to a path of success.”
