Civil servants marking 13th Public Service Day

Posted by Anup Baral September 7th, 2016 : Civil servants are marking the 13th Public Service Day on Wednesday by organising different programmes. The day is a holiday for civil servants. ‘Service-friendly administration, good governance in federalism’ is the slogan for this year’s celebrations. On this day 60 years ago (Bhadra 22, 2066 BS), then prime minister Tanka Prasad Acharya introduced Public Service Act and this day marks that historic occasion. Public servants have been celebrating this occasion for the last 11 years formally. Currently, Nepal has around 83,000 civ9l servants. Coinciding with the day, the Ministry of General Administration is giving away best public service award to 10 employees and public service award to 30 employees.
The government is giving away this year’s outstanding public service award to Finance Secretary Shanta Raj Subedi. The award carries a purse of two lakh rupees. Ten other government employees will get best public service award (with a purse of one lakh rupees each), whereas 30 civil servants will get public service award, which carries a purse of Rs 50,000 each.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.
