Rescue of Nepali workers stranded in Saudi Arabia begins

Posted by Anup Baral August 10th, 2016 :
The Nepali Consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, has started reaching out to Nepali workers, who have been facing difficulties due to closure of companies and employers’ refusal to pay them salary, among other reasons. In a press release, the consulate said it is providing food to 41 Nepali nationals, who have been facing problems due to the closure of a construction company named Saudi Oger. Nepali workers had complained to the consulate that they had been finding it hard to make a living with the company’s mess closed on July 27. Nepalis working in the company have not received salary since January.
The consulate said it has already sent six Nepali workers home. We are working in coordination with Saudi Labour Ministry to provide exit visas to Nepali workers, who want to return home, the consulate stated in the release. The mission said it is also coordinating with Saudi authorities to transfer interested workers in other firms. It has appealed workers in dire straits to contact the Nepali Embassy in Riyadh and the consulate in Jeddah.onlinekhabar

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.
