Nepali Congress (NC) central leader Sujata Koirala has been diagnosed with breast cancer. According to a source, Koirala was on a visit to Malaysia when she was taken to a hospital after she complained of dizziness. At the hospital, she was diagnosed with breat cancer. “She underwent operation in Malaysia,” the source said, “Her biopsy report is yet to come.” Koirala, who stayed in Malaysia for a week for the treatment, underwent surgery on her left breast. It is learnt that Koirala returned to Nepal only a few days ago. Doctors attending to her in Malaysia told her that the cancer could quickly spread to her right breast as well. So, they advised her for a timely treatment, adding that her cancer is curable as it is in its first stage. “Preparations are underway to take her abroad for further treatment next week,” the source added.
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.
