The Election Commission (EC) is preparing to ask its district offices to keep the records of the existing political parties at the local level and those wishing to contest in the elections with an aim of finalizing the status of the parties contesting in the upcoming local elections. Such kind of instructions, according to the EC, is going to be circulated to all 75 district election offices within a week to assess the exact number of parties willing to contest in the local elections. Election Commissioner Ila Sharma said the EC's district offices and political parties would be asked to update their status. The EC will also note down the names of the parties interested in contesting in the local elections in order to finalize the actual number of parties contesting in the elections.
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.
