Talk about why Leaders go abroad for medical treatment?

The “ex-president will receive medical assistance for his medical.Ram Baran Yadav, a physician-turned-politician who rose to be the first president of the country when Nepal turned into a Republic in May 2008. The cabinet has decided to bear entire expenses for his treatment of prostrate cancer in the United States and released Rs six million as the initial installment in addition to ‘to and fro’ travel allowance for three attendants and daily subsistence allowances. He was diagnosed with the ailment recently in PGI, Chandigarh – Dr Yadav did his MD from here in the 80s – with full expenses borne by the Government of India, but it is not known whether the PGI suggested further treatment in the US. Dr Yadav will be going to Henry Ford Cancer Hospital in the US. Doctors in Nepal are unhappy over a large number of Nepali leaders going abroad for specialised treatment ‘undermining the expertise and efficiency at home.’ “What upsets us is the fact that none of these elites bother to have the mandatory recommendations of experts when they decide to go abroad for medical treatment,” a senior doctor working in a well equipped hospital here told ENS pleading anonymity.

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.
