People found torn notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 on roads in West Bengal Two days after the demonetisation of high-value notes, a rag picker in Pune came across a bag full of Rs. 1,000 notes today, summing up to Rs. 52,000. The rag picker, an elderly woman, chanced upon the cash in a plastic bag. She immediately alerted her supervisor, who in-turn informed the police. Police said the incident took place in one of the by-lanes of Law College Road in Pune this morning. "Shanta Ovhal, who is working with the civic body, was segregating the waste this morning in one of the by-lanes of Law College Road, when she found a plastic bag," an officer attached to Deccan-Gymkhana police station said. "To segregate the waste, she opened the bag and was shocked to find currency notes in denominations of Rs. 1,000 along with some waste in the bag," he said. The woman then informed about it to her supervisor.
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.
