Power News: Government prepares domestic investment model for Budhigandaki

Posted by Anup Baral | December 19, 2017 :
A government panel has finalised the model of domestic investment to construct the 1,200-megawatt Budhigandaki Hydropower Project. The panel suggests various forms of tax on all forms of petroleum products, annual budgetary investment of the government and funds from other national financial institutions can generate money sufficient for the project. These financial institutions including Citizens Investment Trust, Employees Provident Fund, Nepal Telecom, Rastriya Beema Sanstha and private insurance companies among others. The team led by National Planning Commission Vice-Chairman Swarnim Wagle submitted its report to Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Energy Kamal Thapa today. Earlier, the government had scrapped the contract signed with Chinese Gezhouba Group for the project and decided to assign Nepal Electricity Authority. It was also decided that the ambitious project would be built on domestic investment.onlinekhabar

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.
