Prime Minister Prachanda's scheduled three-day trip to India

Posted by Anup Baral September 7th, 2016 : In what is being seen as a setback to bilateral relations between the two countries, Chinese President Xi Jinping, who was expected to visit Nepal in October, has cancelled the trip. This was conveyed to Nepalese Foreign Secretary Shankar Bairagi by the Chinese ambassador to Nepal Wu Chuntai during a meeting two days ago.
The decision, incidentally, comes at a time when Nepalese Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, also known as Prachanda, is preparing to visit India for a three-day trip starting September 15. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had last month extended an invitation to Prachanda to visit India at the earliest. According indianexpress, Sources told The Indian Express that the Chinese side expressed disappointment with Nepal over a host of issues.

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.
