Who is activist Ishan Adhikari ?

Posted by Anup Baral May 30, 2016 :

Activist Ishan Adhikari, 21, who was recently held for ‘defacing’ Singhadurbar by splashing red colours on its wall, was visited by former Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai today. The meeting was held at the Metropolitan Police Circle Office at Singhadurbar, where Ishan, along with five other activists, are being held. Sihadarbar “At youth, a revolutionary spirit comes to everyone. But while doing so, one should also take care of one’s health,” a seemingly empathetic Bhattarai said. Bhattarai justified Adhikari’s “spirit and actions” and said it was done to “draw attention of the state.” During the visit, Bhattarai also suggested Adhikari to continue the protest in a different way. Ishan’s case should not be lengthened and should be solved immediately, Bhattarai said to Nepal Police during the visit.

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.
