CPN-UML concerned over "indifference towards polls"

Posted by Anup Baral August 14th, 2016 :
The main opposition party CPN-UML has expressed its concerns over what it said the new coalition government’s indifference towards holding local, provincial and federal elections, dubbing it a conspiracy to create political and constitutional vacuum in the country. A Standing Committee meeting of the party held at its central office in Dhumbarahi decided to draw the government’s attention towards the election schedule that the erstwhile KP Sharma Oli-led government had prepared.

In the meeting, the party’s Chairman KP Sharma Oli vowed to mobilise the CPN-UML to maintain national unity, implementation of the Constitution and strenghtening the party’s organisation, according to CPN-UML’s Secretary Yogesh Bhattarai. The Standing Committee finalised agendas for tomorrow’s meeting which will resume at 11 am tomorrow.

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.
