The government, immediately after overthrowing monarchy in 2006,formed the trust with the mandate to acquire all property belonging to late King Birendra Shah family to preserve it and bring them into proper use.The decision to nationalise royal property belonging to the late King Birendra and his family was taken four nine years ago. The trust so far acquired 5,064 ropanis (19.66 ropanies=1 hectares) of land belonging to the late king.The trust has also acquired 142,503 units of shares bought in the name of late king Birendra and his family members.Nepal Trust has been able to trace down Rs 7,000 belonging to the late royal family in the Rastriya Banijya Bank so far. This year, the government found 43,100 Pound Sterling deposited in Nepal Investment Bank and Standard Chartered Bank by the former royals. “Though the trust has acquired buildings, land and other properties in paper, we have not been able to bring them to use,” she said. According to her, a building at Maharajgunj being used by the security personnel deployed for the security of former kings, a building and an area of 15 ropanis of land at Chhauni being used by former King Gyanendra´s daughter Prerana Rajya Laxmi Devi Singh and 68 ropanis of land occupied by Tribhuvan Adarsh Secondary School in Pharping have been transferred into the name of trust in paper but the government body has not been able to use them.
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.
