Parliamentarian Pushpa Kamal Dahal informed the Legislature-Parliament meeting today about his candidature to the post of Prime Minister in accordance with the Article 298 (3) of the Constitution of Nepal and the Rule 49 (4) of the Legislature-Parliament Regulations, 2073 BS. In this connection, Dahal paid tributes to those people who lost their lives in the People’s War, the People’s Movement and the Madhes Movement, and high respect to those injured in course of these movements. Saying that he was not very happy that a national consensus government could not be formed, Dahal reiterated that consensus was the need of the day. He maintained that consensus could be maintained on national issues and he would put in his best efforts for cooperation and collaboration after his election as the Prime Minister. Dahal stated that he takes the CPN (UML)’s decision of not fielding candidacy to the post of Prime Minister positively, making it clear that to continue the collaboration with the UML, the post-earthquake reconstruction, concluding the peace process and constitution implementation and operation of a balanced foreign policy would be the priorities of the government under his leadership. “Let us not practice the politics of exclusion and my desire is the politics of consensus and cooperation,” Dahal said. Leader Dahal stressed that not polarization but fostering of mutual trust was the need of the hour, pointing out the need of doing away with the culture of mistrust and differences. He also underlined the need of removing the dissatisfaction in the Madhes and that he would play the role of a bridge to resolving the Madhes problems. In this context he referred to the three-point agreement reached among the Nepali Congress, the CPN (Maoist Centre) and the Madhesi Front. Dahal was of the view that the environment was created for emphasising on the post-earthquake reconstruction and pursuing topics like protection of national independence.
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.
