Nepali Congress leader Ram Chandra Poudel

Posted by Anup Baral | October 04, 2017 : The proposal of Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba to forge electoral alliance of Nepali Congress with CPN (Maoist Center) has been rejected. In a meeting held at Baluwatar on Tuesday morning between PM Deuba, NC leader Ram Chandra Poudel and Maoist Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal, the NC proposed for the poll alliance among the largest ruling coalition.
The NC has proposed its coalition partner CPN (MC) to conduct the elections by the incumbent government, giving continuity to the two parties' alliance while the latter is in touch with the CPN (UML) for an electoral alliance and eventually for party unification. According to a source, chair Dahal, however, in response, said that the country is moving ahead for dual-party system and hence the alliance among the ruling coalition is not possible. “We are focused on leftist unification. You take initiation for rightist alliance”, said the source quoting Dahal. During the meeting, chair Dahal assured PM Deuba of continuous support till upcoming elections to the House of Representatives and the State Assemblies scheduled later this year. “We urged him for the alliance in the election”, said leader Poudel and added, “We are still trying to form the coalition with Maoist.”

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.
