Power News: Election challenges

Posted by Anup Baral | February 16, 2017 :
A meeting of the Council of Ministers held two weeks ago had decided to send a formal letter to the election body asking it to start necessary preparations for elections for local bodies. “We have been working to prepare election related regulations and directives, which are essential for the polls,” said EC Spokesperson Surya Prasad Sharma. He said that the commission has to prepare election related regulations and directives, as the Parliament has already passed four election related bills, which were approved by President Bidhya Devi Bhandari. According to Spokesperson Sharma, the EC has also started updating the voters’ list and gathering information about the press where ballot papers will be printed. The EC also started making estimates of the paper and the budget for local polls.

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.
