Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, who currently holds the Health portfolio also, has directed the Health Secretary on Sunday to get the medical doctors, who are accused of getting admission to medical schools using fake academic certificates, suspended from the Nepal Medical Council and stop them from practice. The Nepal Police’s Central Investigation Bureau has launched Operation Quack to crack down on the fake medicos, including dentists and medical, and those who earned their Bachelors degree genuinely but had used fake certificates of ISc or +2 level to pursue MBBS and BDS.

Scores of dentists and doctors have been already arrested under the Operation Quack from different district in recent months. They face forgery charges. Prime Minister Dahal telephoned the Secretary at the Ministry of Health, Dr Senendra Raj Upreti, this morning and told him to do the needful to prevent the medical professionals, who are under investigation, from dealing with the patients, according to Prime Minister Dahal’s Secretariat.

Guide of the month: January 2018

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.
