Chief Justice Gopal Parajuli Free from post

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha March 14, 2018 :
Nepal’s controversial Chief Justice Gopal Prasad Parajuli was sacked minutes before he was preparing to administer oath of office and secrecy to President Bidhya Devi Bhandari, a day after she was elected to the post. However, Parajuli managed to administer the oath of office as a result of the communication gap between the Judicial council and the President’s office. A press statement issued by the judicial council stated that CJ Parajuli had been relieved of his post after careful examination of his birth and academic certificate that showed him having attained the superannuation age (65) seven months ago.

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.
