Nepali political leaders visiting foreign countries for VIPs' Treatment : Power News

Posted by Anup Baral August 30, 2016 : Former President Ram Baran Yadav is a very lucky person in a country where people of far flung VDCs are deprived of even the basic medicines. The state has never hesitated to loosen its purse strings when it comes to his treatment. The government has decided to provide Rs 6 million to former President Dr Ram Baran Yadav for the treatment of his prostate cancer in the United States. A cabinet meeting held last week had decided to pay for the business class tickets to and from USA and USD 300 daily allowance to the former president. Likewise, three aides who will accompany him to the US will receive USD 150 as daily allowances and their air tickets will also be covered by the government. Around two months ago, the government had provided Rs 1 million to Yadav for medical check up in India, during which his prostate cancer was detected. In 2013, while he was a sitting president, Yadav had gone to Japan for a medical check-up after it was suspected that he had an intestine cancer.
Although it turned out to be untrue, the good news came at the cost of Rs 10 million to the state coffer. Doctors in Nepal claim that the prostate cancer seen in the ex-president Yadav is quite common and can be treated in the country. The septuagenarian former president, who himself is a doctor by training and also a former health minister, is quite aware about his ailment. Prostate cancer is a disease that only affects men. Doctors say that prostate cancer starts with tiny alterations in the shape and size of prostate gland cells- Prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN).

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.
