Rekha Thapa talks about her eductation

Actress Rekha Thapa had wanted to head the Nepal Film Development Board (FDB), but her peers had rejected Rekha for not being competent enough. In response to her rejection, Rekha had organized the meet the press event in New York during her month-long visit to USA. Rekha Thapa had stopped her education after SLC and she didn’t go to college. In the meet-the-press event held in New York, she told that some people call her ‘uneducated’ because of the lack of higher education. She added – those who call her uneducated are fool themselves. She called herself a knowledgeable and capable person in her profession. To explain her point, she told that she has done more than any educated person in Nepal has done. She also gave an example of the prime minister who is a PhD degree holder. At this time, he is considered unsuccessful in the role of the prime minister. Explaining the reason behind the lack of university degree Rekha told, she started working at 16 and didn’t get time to attend colleges. She stressed that the shooting spot is her college and the camera, scripts and other aspects of shooting are her books. One thing is clear about Rekha Thapa that she is not scared to speak up her mind. She knows what she is talking about and how to handle the press. Tough childhood has definitely made her shell that is hard to crack. I believe education matters, but it is totally unwise to judge a person based on the educational background. You guys can decide the rest.....
