According to Maoist Center's spokesperson Pampha Bhusal the prime minister's party will get the energy, education, communications, law and justice, and local development among other portfolios. "We will finalize the ministers for the remaining ministries within few days after holding discussions within the party," Bhusal told Republica. The NC, which is the largest party in parliament, will get foreign affairs, defense, general administration, tourism, forest, labor, health, urban development, drinking water and sanitation, and peace and reconstruction portfolios. The two parties have set aside other ministries including the ministry of commerce and supply; land reforms; women, children and social welfare; science and technology; and the ministry of industry for other fringe parties in the ruling coalition. Dispute in NC Though the prime minister and NC leaders had earlier planned to include some more ministers from the NC during the oath taking ceremony, two NC leaders -- Shekhar Koirala and Arjun Narasingh KC -- refused to join the government on Thursday.
According to members close to Koirala, he didn't take oath of office and secrecy on Thursday stating that he should first be assured foreign affairs portfolio. "It wasn't Koirala, who demanded the ministry, but the party president Sher Bahadur Deuba himself proposed him to head the ministry. But, later it was not confirmed. So he didn't join the government today," said a member close to Koirala. Similarly, KC had demanded the ministry of home affairs or any other powerful ministry. According to his aide Saroj KC, the party president proposed him to head two ministries -- defense and health -- but he turned down the offer.
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.
