Constitution amendment proposal to be tabled before Dashain: PM Dahal

Posted by Anup Baral September 28, 2016 :
Prime Minister Prachanda has said the process of Constitution amendment is on track and will give positive result in a few days. Saying consultations were going on with the main opposition CPN-UML on the issue, he said, "Discussion with the UML is taking place. Constitution amendment proposal will be registered on the basis of a national consensus." PM Prachanda was speaking at a press conference organised by the Press Centre, Chitwan. He also informed that Madhesi Morcha was informed of the constitution amendment proposal during a meeting with them on Tuesday and that the Morcha was assured that the constitution implementation and the constitution amendment would go simultaneously. He went on saying that the Cabinet decision to set up local units being based on ilaka (area) of the District Development Committee had eased the process to organise local poll on time (Mid-April) as 'the government was on a war-footing in this regard'. He also said all three levels of elections would take place within the stipulated time. Touching on the Tikapur incident wherein eight people mostly police personnel and a two-year-old boy were killed in a clash with demonstrators, he said just discussions were underway whether to withdraw cases filed against the accused in the incident. Saying the Agriculture and Forestry University was established on his own initiatives, the PM also said he was positive about resolving problems if any university in the country was facing in.

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.
