Professionalism, indeed, is important. Sadly though, professionalism is a rare virtue in the people of Nepal who are working in different levels. Being a student, I have had to encounter people mostly from academic strata, few from government sectors, and mention-able others. The academics are comparatively more professional than government officials. All annoyances we have to face in almost every organization is down to lack of professionalism.
Lack of professionalism has its deep roots on faults in the attitude of people. People of lower level are not aware that they need to be professional. Those in higher levels who know the need, but still are not professional are simply of careless sorts. Change in the very attitude, and awareness about how much better our country is going to be with applied professionalism is necessary. EVERYBODY needs to be professionally literate. Only then can we expect everybody to be a professional. Media can (and should) help to spread the message. Professionalism is sure to induce progress and acceleration of national growth in many aspects.
