Posted by Anup Baral August 29, 2016 : Death toll in the Arghakhanchi jeep accident has reached 10 after one of the injured rescued from the incident site died at the Sandhikharka-based Arghakhanchi District Hospital, police said. Nine people had died on the spot, while five others are critically injured after the jeep that left the Arghakhanchi district headquarters Sandhikharka for Baandikot of neighbouring Pyuthan fell 700 metres down the road in Hansapur VDC. Nine among the 10 of the victims have been identified, according to police. The injured are undergoing treatment at Sandhikharka-based hospital. The ill-fated jeep witnessed puncture of one of its rear wheel while going uphill at Postapata and subsequent brake failure — leading it to the fatal accident, police informed. As many as 16 people were on board the jeep operated by Deurali Yatayat, according to Nawaratna Paudel, the chief of the Arghakhanchi District Police Office. The Deurali Yatayat’s record, on the other hand, showed the jeep had left Sandhikharka with 14 people including the driver. Tulsi Gaire, an employee at the private transporter, said two people could have got on the vehicle later.

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.
