KP Oli's dream come true | Advanced Chinese bus in Kathmandu

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha February 24, 2018 :
Sajha Yatayat plans to introduce the first electric bus within two months and the next three in the first half of this year as pilot models for public transport. Board member with the public transport co-operative Bhushan Tuladhar says this green plan would come to fruition in co-operation with the private sector. The plan envisages introducing several models to promote electric buses with support from government and non-governmental agencies. Tuladhar also called for using tax revenue earned by the government from petroleum-products to control air pollution. “The capital expenditure to raise a fleet of e-buses may appear high in the, but many such buses can be bought with the tax collected per year. We have billions of unspent rupees in the fund that should be used for promoting electric public transport,” said Tuladhar.

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.
