Private Secretariat of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has expressed concern over the reports of the alleged meeting of PM Dahal with the main accused in Tikapur violence during former's recent India visit. The reports of the meeting between PM Dahal and the accused Resham Chaudhary during a reception organised by Indian business community during PM's visit came to the fore following the coverage of the reception by Nepali media. PM's press advisor Gobinda Acharya, however, clarified that PM was not scheduled to meet Chaudhary during the visit and it was unintentional. "It remains unknown that who and for what purpose would meet PM in public programmes. It is not appropriate to comment on the issue," he said, claiming that although PM gave Chaudhary a handshake, he (PM) had no talks with him. Speaking at a press meet organised to make public the decisions made by the CPN-UML in Province No 7 in Dhangadi, Rawal said, “The government cannot withdraw cases against perpetrators of violence in Tikapur in the name of Tarai agitation.” He argued that heinous crime could not go unpunished by giving it political colour. “Impunity cannot and should not be encouraged by withdrawing cases against the perpetrators of violence in the Tikapur incident,” Rawal added.
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.
