The second-round talks between the government and a team representing Dr Govinda KC at the Ministry of Health has been postponed with a conclusion to seek experts’ advice on demands of the fasting doctor. The meeting conducted this morning has been postponed with a note for the necessity to hold a discussion with experts to resolve the stalemate, said Health Secretary Dr Senendra Raj Upreti, who heads the government talks team. “Some topics are very difficult, so we have decided to postpone the meeting as we have seen the necessity to seek suggestions from experts for a substantive conclusion,” the Secretary shared, adding, “Our effort will be to make the next dialogue final.” Dr Ranjan Kumar Sapkota, Coordinator of the talks team representing Dr KC, said the discussion on a major issue, however, could not take place despite a comparative progress.
“We are trying to come close to an agreement,” Sapkota said, “They have asked for time to hold consultation with experts, so we have agreed to hold another dialogue at 7 pm today.” Both the sides are positive to reach a conclusion today. Dr Govinda KC of the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital is staging a fast-unto-death since June 10 demanding reforms in Nepal’s medical education sector.
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.
