Shreelal---Using-Computer

Shreelal Makaju Shrestha is 67 years old and one of the reputed businessman of Dhulikhel, Kavre, Nepal. He owns his own rice mills on Dhulikhel and his family business extends from Dhulikhel to Kathmandu and Sikkim. He had already visited almost 80% cities of India and 60% cities of Nepal. He started his business when he was on 13. He started with Timber measurement business on Sikkim. He completed his education only up to fourth standard but he showed us his extraordinary skills about Mathematices.

He has keen interest on Computers. He wants to learn computers in order to simplify his accounting system of his business. Till now, he use ledger books to keep record of his business transactions. And, he came to know on his business circle that Computers could make his accounting easy. So, this was his major encouraging factor to learn computers.

He has two computers at his home. But, his sons and grandsons do not allow him to use them and said that they could not allow him to use it since he is computer illiterate, he may delete their useful files unknowingly. This answer pinches him a lot. It is also a reason he wants to learn computer and show them that he can also use computers.

So, he went to the Community Training Center to learn computers and returned back after finding out that he needs to have sound knowledge of English Language to use computers. He knows little more about English but do not have enough proficiency to interact with windows messages and computer settings on English. He did not leave his hope and started to query about learning and using computers on Nepali Language. Then, Dhulikhel Telecenter informed him about the Windows in Nepali, and this information cheered him up.

 

I got him when we were making a documentary related to Windows Localization Project.
