Cabinet expansion stalled as NC fails to finalise names

Posted by Anup Baral | June 25, 2017 : Amid criticism from various quarters over the prolonged delay, Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has decided to expand his cabinet on Tuesday. Prime Minister Deuba's personal secretary, Keshab Raj Joshi, said internal preparations are already complete for expanding the cabinet. "Internal homework has been done to expand the cabinet. Cabinet expansion is highly likely tomorrow [Tuesday]," he said.
Joshi said that the prime minister wanted to expand the cabinet on Saturday, but his busy schedule over the past few days left him unable to do so. Besides other engagements, the prime minister remained busy due to the ongoing CWC meeting of the Nepali Congress. On Saturday, Deuba assured CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal that he would expand the cabinet after the conclusion of the CWC meeting. The meeting got prolonged and it concluded only late Monday evening at Deuba's request.

Guide of the month: January 2018

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.
