Posted by Anup Baral September 11, 2016 :
Anil Kumar Jha is a Nepalese politician and chairman of the Nepal Sadbhavana Party, a political party in Nepal.He and his party have demanded autonomy for the Terai Region of Nepal, in addition to a proportional electoral system and an end to discrimination. This is a branch of Nepal Sadbhawana Party formed by late Gajendra Narayan Singh in 1990. Though initially formed as a social organization in 1985 by the name Nepal Sadbhawana Council to advocate for the rights of those in discrimination in Terai region, it was later converted into a political party after the restoration of democracy in 1990. It won six seats in the 1991 legislative election to become the fourth largest party and earned the status of a national party. Unfortunately, with the death of prolific leader Gajendra Narayan Singh, the party divided into many factions. One of the factions, Sadbhawana Party is being led by Rajendra Mahato. Based on Terai region, the party asserts on democracy, nationalism, equitism, federalism and democratic equitism as its main objective. According to the party, democratic equitism is to establish a society free from discriminations through elimination of political, social, economic, cultural, citizen and color-based discrimination by democratic process.

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.
