Rural Road Construction

Posted by Anup Baral December 23, 2016 :
Nepal is a land- locked country betwee n India and China. Its rivers generally run north to south and divide Nepal into many deep valleys. The Terai, a rich alluvia l plain 20 to 30 miles wide, lies on the southern border of Nepal. Although this terrain is suitable for agricultural production an d contains very heavy forest growth, l ack of roads, communication, and electricity in Nepal separate the people who live in this country’s isolated rural communitie s. The lack of communication handica ps all prospects of development . All isolated di stricts tend to follow a pattern of subsistence economy of the most primitive and basic type. In some localities, the soil and climate is suitable for raising cash crops of comparatively high value, a nd some places are fitting for the development of cheap hydroele ctric power. The problem is market and transportation . The lack of a transportation system is the greatest barrier to putting these natural resources to use for the benefit of all . Without transport, administration is costly and the government cannot effec tively fulfill its role of uplifting economic and communities' welfare. The forest in Nepal is approximately four times larger than State of Utter Pradesh in India, but due partly to the lack of transport Nepal’s income is much less even though the natural quality of the forest is better. In these circumstances not only do trade and production languish but also there prevails a general lack of economic security.

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.
