Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, amid a function on Friday, laid foundation stone for the Integrated Model Settlement in Laprak of Gorkha district, constructed for survivors of the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake. Laprak is a village neighbouring Barpak, the epicentre of the devastating quake, which killed nearly 9,000 persons across the nation. The settlement was constructed with a joint investment of Nepal government and Non-Resident Nepalis Association (NRN). Addressing the function, PM Dahal said that the model settlement would give a new hope and good message to the country and its people. As many as 444 houses would be constructed in the place whereas the government would make necessary decisions regarding the space required for construction of remaining 150 houses, the PM further said. Dahal also praised the attempt of NRN members including its President Shesh Ghale for their patriotism adding that it had become an inspiration for everybody.
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.
