Sajha Sawal Episode-472

Nepali orthography, नेपाली वर्ण विन्यास, includes a set of conventions for writing the Nepali language, including spelling, punctuation, hyphenation, Padyog Padbiyog (writing words together or separately). Nepali orthography has evolved over time. The conventions used at Nepali Language Resource Center are based on guidelines published by Nepal's language academy, Nepal Academy. Words in Nepali can be broadly categorized into two groups - Nepali words and Sanskrit loanwords used in Nepali. Sanskrit loanwords, called Tatsam, are words that have made it to the Nepali language without any modification. Nepali words include words, called Tadbhav, that originated from Sanskrit but which got modified as they finally made it to the Nepali language. Nepali words also include loanwords from sources other than Sanskrit. An important orthographic distinction between these two groups is that the Nepali words are written using Nepali writing rules, whereas the Sanskrit loanwords are written the same way they are written in Sanskrit as they made it to the Nepali language without any modification.

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.
