I am one of the students to join the HICAST in its seventh batch of B. Sc. (Hons) Ag. program and the first batch of M. Sc. Agriculture (Agribusiness Management). As a first batch of M.Sc. Agriculture in Agribusiness Management graduate from Nepalese University with scholarship from HICAST, Purbanchal University, I would like to share the fact that HICAST is the only institution in the country which implements the concept of Public Private Partnership in the Nepalese academic sector. I would like to say that the main specialty of the HICAST is to obtain and render theoretical knowledge and field based practical skills through mutual learning with farmers and entrepreneurs. I considered the HICAST as a mother and stepping stone of my career and I am always indebted and respect to her with my whole heart. Wherever I am, I am always there for HICAST and I will always contribute all that I can do for HICAST throughout my life.
