The everyday vehicular movement along the Narayangadh-Mugling road section in Chitwan district would be obstructed for four hours every day for expansion, from February 11. Earlier, a meeting of various stakeholders at the Chitwan District Administration Office on January 3 had decided to obstruct the road for two hours every day. However, after finding difficulties in that time frame, a new decision was taken to extend the restriction for four hours, stated Engineer Shiva Khanal. Accordingly, the road would be closed for four hours from 11 am to 3 pm every day, informed Khanal. Khanal said it was necessary to block the traffic for four hours to widen some road sections which are just five metres wide currently. While the vehicles coming from Pokhara or Kathmandu sides would be stopped in Mugling and those coming from the East-West Highway would be stopped in Ram Nagar during the expansion drive. Khanal said the vehicles leaving Kathmandu had been requested to go along the Prithvi Highway and the Siddhartha Highway for the west and the Tribhuvan Highway for the east.
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.
