Remembering B.P Koirala

Posted by Anup Baral September 09, 2016 :
First people elected Prime Minister of Nepal BP Koirala is being remembered today for his contribution in Nepal's democratic history and also in the field of Nepali literature as today happens to be 33rd death anniversary of late Koirala. BP Koirala was born in 1971 Bhadra 24th and he died in 2039, Shravan 6th due to cancer. Various programs are organized in the country as well as outside to remember his contributions. He led armed revolution in 2007 for the abolishment of Rana regime and to establish democratic rule in the country. He became the first people elected Prime Minister of Nepal in 2015. He remained in jail for many years after King Mahendra imposed Panchyati system of governance. He stood firm in his ideology, principle, belief and democratic norms and values. He not only contributed and stood out in political field but he made immense contributions towards the field of literature too. Atma Katha, Jail journal, Doshi Chasma, Yahudi ra Hitler, Sumnima, Modi Aain, Swet Bhairabi, Narendra dai, and teen ghumti are some of BP's great literary works.

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.
