Metro rail project moves ahead in Kathmandu ?

Posted by Anup Baral | December 20, 2017 :
The board of directors of the Investment Board Nepal (IBN) on Monday directed its management to conduct detailed feasibility study (DFS) of a metro railway project in the Kathmandu Valley and prepare a detailed project report (DPR) based on findings. The decision was made based on a report submitted by a committee comprising a member of the National Planning Commission, the apex body that frames country’s development plans and policies. The committee formed on January 8 was told to conduct a study on the modality of operating metro rail service in the Valley. Based on the recommendation made by the committee, the IBN’s board meeting chaired by Prime Minister and IBN Chairman Sher Bahadur Deuba directed the IBN management to conduct DFS and prepare DPR of Route Number 2 of the Kathmandu Valley metro railway project. The 54-km Route 2 stretches from Nagdhunga to Dhulikhel via Kalanki and Koteshwor. The route is being built under Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (Boot) model. The DPR will spell out cost required to build the project and time required to complete the project.kathmandupost

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.
