Six involved in planting bombs in capital arrested

Posted by Anup Baral | October 22, 2016 :
Police have succeeded in arresting six out of ten people involved in masterminding bomb attacks at various schools of the Valley last month. Cadres and leaders of a little-known Maoist outfit, Maoist Communist Center Nepal (MCCN), had made schools as 'soft target' by planting and detonating improvised explosive devices (IED) early morning on September 20 for the sake of 'easy money'. Police had immediately arrested two cadres of the outfit but most of them were able to escape. Valley in-charge of the outfit Shankar Lakhe and his deputy Chandra Bahadur Tamang were arrested immediately after the bomb attacks. Others arrested recently include MCCN Vice President Bishnu Prasad Paudel, General Secretary Keshav Dahal aka Prakash, coordinator of the outfit Binod Thapa aka Min Devkota and politburo member Mustakim Ansari aka Aazad, according to the Metropolitan Police Commissioner's Office, Ranipokhari.

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.
