Rolpa ko pida

Posted by Anup Baral October 01, 2016 :
People in Rolpa district have been facing problems due the mismanagement in transport services. The monopoly of a few transport entrepreneurs (syndicate system) has led to insufficient number vehicles operating in the district. Currently, only one bus each leaves for Ghorahi, Kathmandu, Bhaluwang and Nepalgunj from Liwang and only six buses are operated to different destinations — including Sulichaur, Tila and Nigalpani — within the district. “The number of buses are too few compared to the number of passengers,” Man Prasad Pun, a teacher of Korchwang, said, adding that the passengers were being packed like sardines in the buses. “Besides, the buses operating in the district are too old and thereby increasing the chances of accidents,” he said. The 109-km Bhaluwang-Liwang road, which is in operation for the past 23 years, is yet to be blacktopped. The dilapidated road is highly prone to accidents.

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.
