NSU poll process to start today

Posted by Anup Baral August 14th, 2016 :
The process of electing new leadership of Nepal Student Union, the student wing of the Nepali Congress, is starting from tomorrow. Although the 11th national general convention of NSU began on August 7, it was prolonged due to disputes over selection of representatives from 11 districts. The directive committee formed by the mother party on Tuesday resolved the disputes, but delay in publication of the name list of convention representatives continued to stall progress.

NSU sources said efforts are under way to finalise the list of convention representatives. Election Committee Coordinator Bharat Prasad Kharel said. “We will publish the final list of representatives on the NC website today. Nominations will be filed tomorrow.” Convention representatives, however, are still in confusion although the directive committee and the election committee are resolving disputes to finalise the list, said Tej Bahadur Baniya, a convention representative from Sindhupalchowk.

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.
