Minister Gagan Thapa urges Dr KC to end fast

Posted by Anup Baral October 06, 2016 :
The National Human Right Commission (NHRC) has made an appeal to save Prof Dr Govind KC’s life, and urged the veteran orthopaedic surgeon who has staged a hunger strike since September 26 and the Government of Nepal to resolve his demands through dialogue. The rights watchdog made the appeal today after visiting Dr KC at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital in Maharajganj and acquired information about his health condition. “Since person’s treatment is related to right to live whatsoever be the way of protest, the Commission draws attention of the concerned side to be sensitive immediately towards saving his life,” expressing its concerns over deterioration in his health, the NHRC said in a statement this afternoon.

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.
