Naya shakti leader Baburam Bhattarai in South Korea

Posted by Anup Baral September 19, 2016 :
The Naya Shakti Nepal, led by former Maoist ideologue Baburam Bhattarai, has proposed ending the row over the new constitution through an all-party mechanism. Submitting a memorandum to Home Minister Bimalendra Nidhi on Sunday, the party demanded the mechanism to work on implementation of the new constitution and for holding the local, provincial and general elections. Bhattarai and other political leaders have been raising doubts over the Maoist-Congress government’s commitment to holding the elections citing the sluggish preparations and a lack of progress in negotiation with the agitating parties. During the meeting with Nidhi, Naya Shakti leaders said that a mechanism incorporating all the political forces was necessary to resolve the issue. The memorandum asks the government to take a lead in addressing the grievances of the Madhes-based parties without delay. The party also submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal through the District Administration Offices.

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.
