A Book by

Sujeev Shakya

Nepal's great advantage is its location between India and China, particularly now as these two Asian giants are set to be the world's leading economies in 2050. Nepal has historically been at its most prosperous when it has leveraged this geographical position. Today, this opportunity emerges again-and in order to take advantage of the growth of India and China, Nepal needs to hitch its wagon to the fast-moving engines to its north and south.

Sujeev Shakya argues that it is imperative to understand history and learn from it to shape events for a better future. He analyses the social, political and cultural aspects underlying the current state of Nepal to strategize the recalibrations required to capitalize on its location. Economic transformations cannot be realized through money and management skills alone; they have to be driven by societal transformation. Unleashing the Vajra outlines the factors that will determine Nepal's destiny in the years to come.

Sujeev Shakya is a Thought Leader who combines business excellence with societal conscience through a human centric approach. He leverages his vast knowledge in diverse fields spanning over 25 years of experience; across different sectors and geographies, to continuously recalibrate the way people think, plan and execute for themselves and others.

He has passion for making people believe in themselves and walking that extra mile to realize their potential. He strives to positively transform individuals and organizations helping people both in their professional and personal lives. He is a source of inspiration for many people around the world and in Nepal he is also dubbed as its CEO – Chief Eternal Optimist.
