Biratnagar, February 23
Professor Govinda Subba’s routine has changed drastically after being appointed the governor of Province 1. Sher Bahadur Deuba-led government had picked him as the provincial chief on January 17.
“Being a researcher I used to be surrounded by books, but as I assume a different responsibility now, my routine too has changed,” said the lecturer-turned-governor. “I am quite an early bird and can’t lie in beyond 4 o’clock but it’s not until 8:00am I go out to meet people,” he said, adding, he has ample time for reading these days, especially newspapers.
“I read papers every day in the morning; the only difference is earlier I used to read materials about language, these days I read news about politics and provinces,” said the governor.
“I don’t only read about my province, but about other provinces as well,” said Subba, pledging his contribution to develop the province in to a model province.
Born in Dhankuta about 60 years ago, Subba had started his schooling from Damodar National Primary School. He completed his proficiency certificate level from Dhankuta campus and MA in English from the Tribhuvan University Campus, Kirtipur, before completing his PhD from India.
