The New Idea
Bharat left his safe, prestigious work to found the independent, non-profit Nepal Press Institute (NPI), an organization devoted to improving the press skills of Nepal's urban and rural journalists, both established and just starting out. "Our job is to help create a new generation of journalists. They will bring life to the press."
