Now Oli to band importing Indian vehicle || Lal Babu suggestion

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha March 02, 2018 :
In a bid to control the worsening air pollution in the country, the government is mulling over halting import of vehicles that don’t meet Euro IV norms. Joint Secretary at Ministry of Population and Environment Laxmi Kumari Basnet said the ministry was doing groundwork to ban import of vehicles that didn’t meet Euro IV standards. “We are coordinating with government bodies and stakeholders before banning import of vehicles not meeting Euro IV standards,” she told THT over phone. Minister for Population and Environment Lalbabu Pandit said he had instructed ministry officials to do the needful to ensure that the ban was imposed effectively. “We should be open to upgrade standards of new vehicles that will ply the roads if that is what is needed to control air pollution,” the minister said. While the government has not set any specific deadline for rolling out its plans, automobile dealers have welcomed the government’s initiative. Saurav Jyoti, former president of the Nepal Automobile Dealers Association, said NADA should support the move. He said, “Since India has already implemented Bharat Stage IV standards, which is almost equivalent to Euro IV, it will be easier for us to upgrade.”

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.
