Govt to provide Rs 1 million each to families of Madhes unrest victims

Posted by Anup Baral | August 18, 2016 :
The Cabinet on Thursday decided to provide Rs 1 million each to families of those who died during the months-long anti-Constitution protest in the Tarai-Madhes region of Nepal. The Cabinet decided that such 52 victims also include 11 security personnel. Meanwhile, the government also formed a seven-member commission to investigate into violent incidents occurred during the protests. Former Supreme Court Justice Girish Chanda Lal heads the Commission while other members would be appointed later.
Earlier, before electing CPN Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal the Prime Minister, the coalition partners CPN MC and Nepali Congress had signed a deal with the agitating Federal Alliance and the United Democratic Madhesi Front, in which they had agreed to provide relief to families of the Madhes unrest victims and form a commission to probe into the violent incidents during the protest. Meanwhile, the Cabinet approved the concerned ministry’s proposal to prepare a bill to hold local body elections. The meeting also assigned Minister for Information and Communications Surendra Karki to work as the government spokesperson.thehimalayantimes

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.
