The reason behind the suicide is unknown and the police is investigating the incident. A well known music video director Alok Nembang debuted in Nepali film as a director in ‘Sano Sansar’ (watch ‘Sano Sansar’) and also directed ‘Kohi Mero’ (watch ‘Kohi Mero’). Hit movie ‘Sano Sansar’ had established him as a very good director. Alok had also acted in ‘Numafung’ (watch Numafung here). He had re-introduced ex-Miss Nepal Jharana Bajracharya after her long absence from the film industry in ‘Kohi Mero’. The movie wasn’t as successful as expected. Alok was absent from the film industry for about 5 years before announcing ‘Ajhai Pani’ – a Sudarshan Thapa production and featuring actress Pooja Sharma. The movie is scheduled to release on Falgun 15. Untimely demise of the talented and young director is a great loss to the Nepali film industry. We at xnepali wish the deceased soul rest in peace.
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.
