Work Hard, Party Harder
–By Upashana Neupane
How would a major entrepreneur in the country manage his work life and life beyond office hours?
Shekhar Golchha, a prominent business figure in Nepal, shares that it is not a tough job, at least for him. He believes that managing one’s personal and professional life is not difficult if one is able to manage oneself well. Golchha says this being a very well-managed person himself.
Golchha shares that he never mixes up his work life and personal life. He keeps his office and off-office hours separate unless it is an emergency. “I don’t take even a single paper home,” he shares.
While taking a break from work, Golchha likes to hang out with friends and travel. A big-time traveller, Golchha has been to 60-70 countries around the world. And when he travels, he chooses his destination for adventure and thrill. Golchha has the spirit of an explorer. Whenever he goes out for vacation, he always makes sure the destination would be one from which he can learn new things. “I am not into shopping and beach holidays,” he shares, “I choose a place where there is action and adventure.” Golchha’s love for adventure can be found in his passion towards trekking and mountain biking.
Golchha’s craze for trekking has taken him to places like the Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit inside the country and Mt Machu Picchu of Peru, glaciers in Argentina and several mountains in Turkey. “Trekking has always been my passion,” he says. “If I had more spare time, I would trek more.”
Golchha is a big socialite as well. He shares that he so much hates being alone. “I have to have people around me constantly to keep talking and sharing my ideas,” he says smiling.
He believes that taking a break in anyone’s life is very important. “One who doesn’t take a break can never be creative,” he opines. He believes that one, who only works, lives only 50 per cent of his life.
Apart from his love for adventure, Golchha keeps his interest in sports too. Though he doesn’t play much, he follows football and cricket. Golchha is available and updated in some social networking sites as well.
This adventure-loving business tycoon wishes to trek more and learn photography if he had more spare time. He also dreams of learning to fly a helicopter some day.
