Nepali Congress General Secretary Shashanka Koirala has been discharged from Om Hospital on early Wednesday. Nepali Congress General Secretary Shashanka Koirala today returned home after being discharged from the hospital. Hundreds of cadres and well wishers had gathered at the Om Hospital premises to greet Koirala, who was admitted to the hospital on July 5 as he suffered from aspiration pneumonia that led to septic shock and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome.
His wife Supatra along with the senior doctors of the hospital, Bhola Rijal and Harish Joshi, escorted him to the vehicle. Thanking the doctors, Koirala departed from the hospital premises for his residence in Tokha. Hospital Chairman Rijal, informed that Koirala’s reports are all normal, but needs to rest for a month. He has been called for a follow-up a week later, added Rijal.
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.
