Kalanki underpass road construction

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha November 8, 2017 :
One of the Kathmandu Ring Road Improvement Projects in the Capital is to revamp Kalanki—a busiest junction in Kathmandu—with the construction of the country’s first under-pass road. The construction of the four-lane 800 metre long underground road has already begun and was expected to complete in two years when the project was first launched in December 2016. A tunnel for the underpass is being dug presently. Because of the ongoing construction, Kalanki has become one of the most polluted areas in the Capital. People passing through this junction and the local residents are hit hard not only by the dust pollution but also due to the traffic congestion.

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.
