Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda, (centre) leaves the parliament in Kathmandu on Weddnesday after opposition lawmakers filed a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli. (AFP) The largest party Nepali Congress has formally endorsed the seven-point agreement that its president, Sher Bahadur Deuba, forged with CPN Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal to build a new coalition government. The party’s Central Working Committee held its meeting at the Nuptse Hall in the Parliament building this morning to endorse the agreement. The meeting decided to lend support to Pushpa Kamal Dahal as the candidate for new prime minister. As per Deuba’s instructions, Bimalendra Nidhi had informed the CWC about the agreement between Deuba and Dahal.
As Deuba floated a proposal for the endorsement of the seven-point NC-Maoist agreement, some CWC members took exception to the party president’s modus operandi, saying such a crucial decision was made without keeping the party in the loop. CWC members including Ram Chandra Paudel, Prakash Man Singh, Khum Bahadur Khadka, Mahesh Acharya, Sujata Koirala, Ramesh Lekhak and Devendra Raj Kandel had aired their views over the latest political development and the agreement.
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.
