Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal today issued instructions to the Karnali Development Commission's officials to come up with a substantive work plan for Karnali region's development. The PM reasoned that Karnali region's development could not gain pace through a traditional approach. He instructed the officials to introduce a work plan with a cost estimate as the process of human progress would not be able to move forward effectively and that national necessity would remain incomplete in its absence. PM Dahal made it clear that only with the use of unbounded possibilities of herbs, agriculture, tourism, and energy sector, the Karnali region could open up the path of country's economic prosperity. "As in the past, Karnali's development will not happen with the plans based only on documents," PM said and instructed the officials further, "When drafting the work plan to make its presentation along with its implementation period and a clear provision on a budget. It is necessary for us to change our mentality towards Karnali." The officials had presented the PM with a 10-year master plan for Karnali's development. The Commission delegation led by its Chairman, Dr. Chandra Kanta Poudel, called on PM Dahal at the Office of Prime Minister and Council of Ministers in Singha Durbar this morning.
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.
