The ongoing meeting of the Standing Committee meeting of the CPN-UML continued today. A press release said party leaders Ghanashyam Bhushal, Prithvi Subba Gurung, Amrit Kumar Bohara, Pushpa Kandel, Keshav Badal, Kiran Gurung, and Satya Narayan Mandal spoke in today’s meeting. The release said that the meeting felt that the erstwhile UML-led government had achieved some key successes in neutralising the challenges posed by the blockade at the border points, unrest in the Tarai region and in the sphere of geopolitics. “The meeting feels pride in that the UML-led government, keeping national self-respect high, took positive steps to achieve the goal of equitable and just society through overall development,” read the release.
The party leaders who spoke in the meeting also said that the mistakes the party-led government made while achieving its goals would serve as lesson and would be a matter of introspection, according to the release. The party leaders also highlighted the need for greater unity in the party. They said that the party should take effective steps to materialise the polices adopted in the ninth General Convention in order to make the party the largest party in the next general 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.
