Bidhya Devi Bhandari nominations for presidential election

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha March 08, 2018 :
CPN-UML’s Bidya Devi Bhandari and Nepali Congress’s Laxmi Rai have filed nominations papers for the election to the post of president slated for March 13. A standing committee meeting of UML on Tuesday night picked Bhandari ahead of another senior leader Jhala Nath Khanal as its presidential candidate while NC’s Central Working Committee on Wednesday decided to field Rai. NC had previously said it would not contest for presidential election if UML fielded any other candidate except Bhandari. Bhandari and Rai reached Election Officer’s Office in New Baneshwor to file their nominations. Bhandari was proposed by Madhav Kumar Nepal, Bhim Rawal, Ishwor Pokharel, Subash Chandra Nembang and Onsari Gharti Magar while Ram Bahadur Thapa, Bishnu Poudel, Gokarna Bista, Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal and Rabindra Adhikari seconded her.

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.
