House passes bill with hiked pay, perks for lawmakers

Posted by Anup Baral | November 23, 2016 :
The Members of Parliament (MPs) have called for developing the bill related to the social security to turn it into a fund based purely on contribution. The lawmakers took part in the discussion on social security related bill, 2072 during the meeting of the International Relations and Labour Committee under the Legislature Parliament. They suggested making the bill based purely on labour contribution of the workers and employees by removing the provision for providing social security amount for elderly, differently- abled and single women. The lawmakers also demanded keeping a distinct arrangement for provision on social security. As the bill was introduced with trilateral agreement between the government, labourers and the owners in 2067 BS, the lawmakers have called for finalizing it in the same manner. They have also called for integrated approach for labour bill and social security bill. On the occasion, lawmaker, Pushkar Acharya, said it would not be justified to provide social security money for other people by drawing the money from the fund based on contribution of employees and labourers.

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.
