Police detained 11 rights activists demonstrating outside the prime minister residence Baluwatar demanding justice for Ganga Maya Adhikari on Sunday. Rights defender Charan Prasai said that police picked them from the protest site saying the spot is restricted zone for any kind of gathering and protest. “We wanted to draw the attention of the government towards the demands of Ganga Maya, who is in critical health condition,” said Prasai. “We want the government implement the court order.” Ganga Maya has resumed fast-unto-death demanding arrest of the murderer of her teenage son Krishna Prasad Adhikari, allegedly abducted and killed by then-rebel Maoists in 2004.
She along with her husband Nanda Prasad had started for a fast-onto-death, demanding justice to their murdered son in 2013. Nanda Prasad died last year during the hunger strike, while Ganga Maya agreed to break her hunger strike and survived on liquid food. Police detained Indra Aryal, Suman adhikari, Rasana Dhakal, Shova Maharjan, Sabitri Shrestha, Krishna Hari Aryal, Bachchu Rijal, Rabin Basnet, Charan Prasai, Sushila Sharma Simkhada and Bhajaraj Chapagain in a police station in Kamal Pokhari.myrepublica
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.
