Asia shortest lady Manju Ghimire's Dance

Posted by Anup Baral September 14, 2016 : Last year, when Manju Ghimire went to Pokhara city to attend the birthday party of a teenage acquaintance, she was full of hope and excitement. It was the 17th birthday of Khagendra Thapa Magar, Nepal’s boy-wonder measuring just 22 inches, who became an international celebrity overnight after seeking to be recognised as the shortest man in the world by the ‘Guinness Book of World Records’. Although Khagendra’s application was turned down on the ground that the 17-year-old would need to wait until he turned 18, on October 14, 2010, the record will almost certainly be his, especially with the recent death of He Pingping, a Chinese, who at 2 ft 5.37 inches held the official title of being the world’s shortest man.
“Dwarfs like us revelled in the attention given to Khagendra,” says Ghimire, a 29-year-old actor and dancer, who measures 33 inches. “We thought the government would wake up to the fact that there are hundreds of little people like Khagendra in Nepal and that it is the responsibility of the State to provide for them.”newsblaze

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.
