UML wins Nepali Congress's stronghold

Posted by Anup Baral | December 8, 2017 : The Nepali Congress outweighed CPN-UML at Manang. However, this time, UML has broken Nepali Congress’s win after Polden Chopang Gurung, CPN-UML’s district chairperson defeated NC’s Tek Bahadur Gurung. Polden garnered 2300 votes while Gurung had 2021 votes. In 2064’s election, Dev Gurung of CPN-Maoist had won the election. During the elections of 2048, 2051 and 2056, UML had no nominations for the election. In the first constituent assembly election, the party received only 47 votes. During second constituent assembly of 2070, the party secured only 70 votes.
The left alliance had helped to secure UML’s win in Manag, Gurung said. “This also reflects trust that voters have shown us.” With the win, Gurung said that he’d work to improve UML’s presence in the district. “We were weak before. That’s why we lagged behind,” Gurung said in a telephone conversation, “However, this time; we’ve won and come forward because of the trust of voters.”

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.
