Nepal Police arrested CK Raut for the Madhes region’s secession from Nepal, from a house in Machhabazar area of Janakpur in Dhanusha district on Thursday afternoon. Superintendent of Police at the District Police Office, Lal Mani Acharya, informed that Raut was apprehended from Janakpur on a request made by the Lahan-based Area Police Office of neighbouring Siraha district.Raut, who spearheads the secessionist movement through the Alliance for Independent Madhes as its leader, dubbed his detention as nonjudicial, claiming that he has not done anything tantamount to treason. Police do not have right to break doors and barge into [my] room, he told media people after his arrest at around 3 pm. According to him, police arrested without forging any warrant. Police source told THT Online that Raut faces treason charges for his recent speech delivered in Lahan at a programme organised to mark the death anniversary of Ramesh Mahato, who was the first person to lose life in the Madhesh agitation. Earlier on November 25 last year, Raut was arrested from Janakpurdham on treason charges for demanding secession of the Madhes region from Nepal. He, however, was acquitted by the Supreme Court later.
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.
