one dead and 11 houses swept away by Myagdi floods

Posted by Anup Baral September 2nd, 2016 : As many as 11 houses were swept away by floods in the Khahare River in Beg-6 of Myagdi district on Thursday night. The houses in the Begkhola village near the Beni-Jomsom road were swept away, according to the District Police Office. Likewise, a bailey bridge and a suspension bridge over the Begkhola along the road were also swept away, police said. Locals had rushed to safety soon after the water level rose all of a sudden in the river due to the rain last night, Police Inspector Lokendra Singh Guru said. No human casualty has been reported in the incidents.
However, a local has been reported missing. Meanwhile, four other families who were at risk have been shifted to safer location. Locals and police are cooperating to shift people to safer places and look for those missing. Likewise, a team from the Nepal Red Cross Society has left for the affected site along with relief materials for the affected.

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.
