Sajha Yatayat is going to ply 30 more buses in the Kathmandu Valley from Sunday (today). Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal inaugurated the launching of the new buses amidst a ceremony organized at Sajha Yatayat’s office, Pulchowk, around 9 the morning. Now, Sajha has a total of 46 buses. Thirty eight buses will be serving in the Kathmandu Valley and 8 buses outside the valley on long routes. The new buses are disable-friendly and were bought by the company a few months ago with an assistance of Rs 100 million by the Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) with the hope to improve public transportation in Kathmandu. “The KMC had bought Sajha shares worth Rs 100 million,” Metropolitan spokesperson, Gyanendra Karki said, “To serve the general public, we asked the company to buy new buses from the same money. The people will now find Sajha buses every five minutes on the routes Sajha buses ply.”
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.
