Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal today returned home after completing his four-day state visit to India. The Prime Minister was welcomed home by Speaker Onsari Gharti, Deputy Prime Ministers duo Bimalendra Nidhi and Krishna Bahadur Mahara, Ministers, heads of constitutional and security bodies and high-level officials. On the occasion, a contingent of the Nepal Army presented a guard of honour in respect of the Prime Minister. Prime Minister Dahal had been on a four-day visit to India beginning September 15 at the invitation of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi. PM Dahal, who led a delegation including his spouse Sita, Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr Prakash Sharan Mahat and Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport Management Ramesh Lekhak, stayed at the Rastrapati Bhawan in New Delhi during his visit. During his visit, the Prime Minister met and held meetings with senior political leaders and office-bearers including President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Modi.

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.
