Supreme Court upholds Aryal's appointment as Nepal Police chief

Posted by Anup Baral | September 13, 2017 : Nepal’s Supreme Court has upheld the government’s decision to appoint Prakash Aryal as the country’s police chief, laying rest a bitter row between the judiciary and the executive wings of the state. A ‘full bench’ of the court, headed by Chief Justice Gopal Prasd Parajuly scrapped a writ petition filed by DIG Nawaraj Silwal challenging the appointment of Aryal to the post.
The government appointed Prakash Aryal as IGP on April 10, when a meeting of the Cabinet endorsed his name. Aryal was the second senior-most officer as the head of Nepal Police. The Supreme Court had annulled the government’s previous decision to appoint DIG Jaya Bahadur Chand to the post. The government had then to choose between Aryal and the senior-most DIG, Nawaraj Silwal. Following the Supreme Court’s order to annul the appointment of Jaya Bahadur Chand to the post, the executive wing of government had concluded that the judiciary went outside of its jurisdiction to interfere in administrative work.

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.
