Power News: Nepal Army working on Fast track project

Posted by Anup Baral | January 14, 2018 :
The government has handed over the much-talked about Kathmandu-Tarai Fast Track Road Project to the Nepal Army. Satendra Shakya, the project chief under the Department of Roads, handed over the project to Major General Yogendra Bahadur Khand of the Nepal Army Technical Department at a function in the Capital on Friday. The 76-km expressway will connect Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Makwanpur and join the East West Highway at Nijgadh of Bara district. The project had been in limbo for the past 10 years until the government decided to hand over its execution to the NA on May 4. Saroj Pradhan, joint secretary at the Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport and other army officials were also present on the occasion. The NA has aimed to complete the four-lane expressway--a national pride project--in four years. Once completed, the expressway will connect the Capital with the Tarai region in just an hour.

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.
