Fishery farming in Kailali Nepal

Posted by Anup Baral December 06, 2016 : “Better I will do fish farming in my own village rather than wasting time for other jobs,” said one Sarita BC, a resident of Lamki in Kailali district. The young woman who recently completed her higher secondary education changed her mind after attending a commercial pisciculture training programme in Geta of Kailali recently.
The Project for Agriculture Commercialisation and Trade (PACT) under the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD) had organised the training for 20 farmers of Kailali and Kanchanpur districts. Training Coordinator Gayatri Raj Wagle said three experts felicitated sessions in the training. “The training programme is organised so as to enable women to disseminate the knowledge to other farmers,” PACT Regional Chief Madan Thapa said. Like BC, other participants of the training also shared that they were motivated by the programme to further strengthen their fish farming business. Experts said that while Nepali fish have not got attention in the market, traders are importing the fish from other nations including India. Meanwhile, participants said expansion of market for Nepali agriculture products was necessary.

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.
