Introducing oneself is the toughest thing; however, I will try my best. Hello, I am Uttam Raj Regmi.
I was born December 1975 in Pokhara, a small beautiful city that lies west of Kathmandu, Nepal.
I completed my School Leaving Certificate (SLC) from Pokhara, and pursued my bachelor degree in Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE)
from the University of Baguio, Philippines. I came back to Nepal in 1997 with my engineering degree hoping for a bright future, however,
I found myself stuck with a petty low paying job with a city construction company.
I became very frustrated with the nature of the job and the low pay; hence I joined classes at Pokhara University
for two years and obtained my MBA. I shifted to Kathmandu in 2002 and joined a Fast Moving Consumer Goods company as a management trainee and worked there till 2005.
During that time I married my college friend, in 2002. My wife also has an MBA and presently works in a bank. We are blessed with two beautiful daughters.
At present, I work in the marketing department of a non-profit organization that specializes in social marketing of health products in Nepal.
During my stay with this organization I have been given the opportunity to carry my studies further, and received a Master of Sociology Degree from one of the Universities of Nepal.
Regarding my hobbies, I am a nature lover; I love to travel, know culture, and interact with people. I am also a dreamer,
I enjoy dreaming; I dream of roaming around the world, but in actual fact I have only been to few countries: India, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia.
I am inquisitive by nature, and curious to know about cosmology, the planetary motions, which are some of my main fields of interest, but I am a man with no definitive career goals. . .
I've studied civil engineering, received an MBA, and tried sociology, but still I am not clear what my life's vision is.
I always had an inner desire to write something. I tried it a few times, but it never turned out right.
Then a year ago, an incident occurred where I was taken into police custody in my own home city when we had gone to participate in an annual company conference.
The two nights in police custody was a life learning institution for me. I saw many things; corruption, betrayal, barbarism, sexual harassment, Nepotism etc.
I was determined to write something about it, so, I landed up writing this novel "Two Nights in Police Custody".
