Make Kathmandu Valley load shedding-free area, PM tells NEA

Posted by Anup Baral November 8th, 2016 :
Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has directed Executive Director of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), Kulmansing Ghising, to prepare a concrete draft so as to declare the Kathmandu Valley a load-shedding free zone. “ I am happy that my dream to make the Kathmandu Valley a load-shedding free zone is coming true,” said Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, after a meeting with Ghising who had gone to Baluwatar to meet the PM.
Dahal said that he has already directed NEA Executive Director Ghising to expedite the work to this effect and ask the government for help in case of any hassles. The government is always ready to cooperate with the NEA, the PM said. He directed Ghising to gear up for the recovery of electricity arrears, control power theft and make necessary preparations for the mega projects. Ghising said that the NEA is all set to make the valley free from load-shedding in line with the plan of Prime Minister Dahal.

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.
