Complaints against the proposed ambassador to India, Deep Kumar Upadhyay

Posted by Anup Baral September 21, 2016 : sAt least three complaints have been lodged at the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee (PHSC) against proposed ambassador to India, Deep Kumar Upadhyay. All of them were submitted through emails by anonymous complainants. Leela Mani Paudyal, proposed ambassador to China, received just a complaint against him. It is also not actually a complaint, as the person has just sought his property details.
The House panel opened the complaint box amid a meeting today. Earlier, on September 7, the PHSC had called for complaints— if there is any— against the nominees picked for key diplomatic positions. Complaints against Upadhyay have asked him why he received an award from the Indian government when he was Nepal’s envoy to India earlier and why he refrained from making a public statement against India’s ‘blockade’. In another complaint, his eligibility to become an envoy has been questioned as he is a veteran leader of the Nepali Congress party.thehimalayantimes

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.
