'Korala border to open within a year'

Posted by Anup Baral | October 29, 2016 :The government has taken initiatives to open the much-hyped Korala border point in Mustang district. The authorities started preparations to upgrade the Pokhara-Korala road and set up a Nepal Army (NA) barracks as well as a border out post in Korala area. The government will soon hold talks with China and open the border point within a year, a high-level government team, which included three deputy prime ministers (DPM), said on Thursday after an inspection visit of Korala. DPMs trio Bijaya Gachhadar, Bhim Rawal and Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, State Minister for Finance Damodar Bhandari, former prime minister and senior CPN-UML leader Madhav Nepal, among others, were on the inspection tour.
Nepal government has announced a public holiday on the day the President of India visit Nepal. In the past the government used to declare holidays on the day the Kings visit foreign countries or return back. The present government led by the revolutionary Prachanda who threw away the king, is accused of establishing the foreign leaders in the level of the kings. It is noted that the Indian government had played an important role in the safe landing of Maoist party in the peak of its civil war.

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.
