The Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers (OPMCM) on Friday produced a file related to the appointment of Lokman Singh Karki as chief commissioner at the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA). The apex court on August 26 sought the original files regarding the appointment of Karki as CIAA chief in May, 2014 and the original files regarding the decision on March 25, 2007 of the then government to seek some clarifications from Karki. However, the Ministry of General Administration (MoGA) is yet to furnish the files related to the clarifications. Earlier, the OPMCM and MoGA had replied to the court that the files could not be found in the records. Following this, a bench of Chief Justice Sushila Karki and Justices Bishwambhar Prasad Shrestha and Sapana Pradhan Malla on September 17 decided to take up again a writ petition related to Karki's appointment. The bench also warned the government of legal action if the files were not furnished as per the court order.
"The Office of the Prime Minister on Friday furnished the files sought by the court but the Ministry of General Administration is yet to send any files," said Bishwaraj Paudel, deputy spokesperson of the court. Earlier, secretary at OPMCM Mahendra Man Gurung had replied to the court that the files could not be found because the devastating earthquake of April 25, 2015 damaged the office and it had to shift to another building.
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.
