Rajeshchandra Devjee is the Founder and President of the Brand SAIndia, a print publication that was launched in South Africa in 2001 with a strong logistics distribution to 3500 magazine retailers and FMCG stores nationwide. The growth of the brand in its later years succumbed to a slow decline in print sales due to the inception of the 4th industrial revolution.To this day the brand has grown in leaps and bounds thanks to the advent of social media platforms and mobile app technology. SAIndia is now available on the internet and mobile platforms in 177 countries and growing at a phenomenal rate, acquiring an audience from all walks of life whose interests range from politics to fashion and other genres.

Nepal is known for its picturesque mountains, lush valleys, and cultural heritage, but it also has a reputation for being one of the riskiest places to fly in the world. The country’s rugged terrain and challenging weather conditions, combined with a lack of proper infrastructure and trained personnel, have led to a high number of plane crashes in Nepal. One of the main reasons why flying in Nepal is so risky is the country’s topography. The Himalayan mountain range, which runs through Nepal, poses a major challenge for pilots. The high peaks and deep valleys make it difficult to navigate, and the unpredictable weather can change rapidly, making it easy for a pilot to lose visibility and control of the aircraft.

Another factor that contributes to the high risk of flying in Nepal is the lack of proper infrastructure. Many of the airports in Nepal are located in remote and difficult-to-reach areas, and the facilities and equipment at these airports are often outdated and in poor condition. This can make it difficult for pilots to take off and land safely, and can also make it difficult for rescue and recovery teams to reach the crash site in case of an emergency. The shortage of trained personnel in Nepal is also a significant contributor to the high risk of flying in the country. Many of the pilots and maintenance staff working in Nepal are not properly trained, and the aviation industry in Nepal is not well-regulated. This can lead to a lack of standard operating procedures and a lack of oversight, which can increase the risk of accidents.

In addition, the Nepalese government’s inability to maintain the aircrafts and lack of regulations on the airline companies, often leads to the usage of old and poorly maintained aircrafts. This increases the risk of accidents.

In conclusion, flying in Nepal is risky due to a combination of factors, including the country’s rugged terrain and challenging weather conditions, lack of proper infrastructure and trained personnel, and lack of regulations and oversight. The Nepalese government and the aviation industry must work together to address these issues and improve the safety of air travel in the country.
