Interview with Hridesh Tripathi

Posted by Anup Baral December 17, 2016 :
The Terai Madhes Sadbhavana Party is a political party in Nepal. It is led by Mahendra Yadav. The Terai Madhes Sadbhavana Party won 3 seats in the 2013 Nepalese Constituent Assembly election. The Madhesi Morcha is in a 'wait and watch' mode before coming up with an official decision whether to participate in the new government to be formed by the Nepali Congress and the CPN (Maoist Center). Few Madhesi parties, which have hinted to join the Nepali Congress (NC)-CPN (Maoists center) alliance government, haven’t come up with an official decision yet. According to sources, half of the parties associated with the Morcha have been lobbying for joining the new government. But silence from the Federal Socialist Forum Nepal (FSFN) and leaders including Mahantha Thakur has created hurdles in making a decision to join the new government. As there are still few days to go before the new government is formed, the Madhesi Morcha is now in a ‘wait and watch’ mode. But all the seven parties of the Morcha and most of the parties of the Federal Alliance have already decided to stand against the Oli government. They have supported the no-confidence motion filed by NC-Maoist Center against Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli in the Legislator-Parliament.

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.
