PM Kp oli greet on Republic Day

Posted by Anup Baral May 28, 2016 :
President Bidya Devi Bhandari graced a special function organized at the Army Pavilion (tundikhel) to mark the Republic Day 2016 on Saturday morning. Vice-president Nanda Bahadur Pun, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, Speaker Onsari Gharti, Acting Chief Justice Sushila Karki and other distinguished personalities also attended the function. Addressing the function, Prime Minister Oli said today was a day of important achievement with the establishment of republic as the cornerstone of social justice and equality, and by doing away with the monarchy based on unscientific principle of supremacy by birth. "We should take the republic day today as an epochal time when the foundation of a people-oriented and democratic system of governance was laid to build a modern Nepal", he said.

Stating that the constitution was promulgated through the people-elected Constituent Assembly on September 20, 2015 as a result of the Nepali people's struggle since 1951, Prime Minister Oli said the constitution is thereby a recognition of the long struggle and sacrifices by the Nepali people, and has institutionalized the achievements made through those struggles. "The new constitution has not only granted equal rights to all Nepalis, but also guarantees socio-economic, cultural as well as political rights". Prime Minister Oli said, "This progress can be advanced at speed, we can strengthen the political achievements including democratic republic set up and make it prosperous." He also renewed his appeal to all to continue engagement in the effort to resolve the problems through dialogue and underscored the fact that differences in political views including other disagreements could be resolved through dialogue and negotiations. The Prime Minister referenced the act of beating of the mattress to clear the dust, liking it to the government's overcoming the mega crisis emanating from the earthquake-triggered massive destruction, agitation, strikes and supply management crisis, and added it was now working to reconstruct and rebuild. "The present government is committed to protecting and consolidating peace, democracy, social justice and equality, sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and country's interest and self-dignity," PM asserted. He stressed on the need for national unity, resoluteness and extensive effort to use Nepal's natural resources and heritages correctly, so as to usher in prosperity. He wished that all would be motivated to that end on the occasion of the Republic Day. RSS

Guide of the month: January 2018

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
