Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter are also flooded with pleas calling on the government to declare January 11 as a public holiday. RPP is organising a tea party in Bhrikutimandap tomorrow to mark Shah’s birth anniversary. Chief Whip of the party Dilnath Giri told The Himalayan Times that he had personally requested top leaders of all political parties to pile pressure on the government to declare a public holiday on this day. Giri said top leaders, including Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba and CPN-UML Chair KP Sharma Oli, had responded positively to his request. “They all said they had no objection if the government declared January 11 a public holiday,” Giri said, adding that former prime minister Jhalanath Khanal even asked PM Pushpa Kamal Dahal to take a decision to this effect before long. According to him, PM Dahal had told him that he would take a decision in this regard after consulting other political parties.
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.
