Narayanghat - Muglin Road.

Posted by Anup Baral | July 26, 2018 :
A road accident at Chitre along the Mid-hills Highway on Monday killed one and injured nine people. The jeep, which met with the accident, was half immersed in the muddy road and is said to have veered off the road. Such accidents are not uncommon in the highway. During monsoon, it gets riskier as the road gets slippery. Potholes and narrow turnings make it a rough ride during any season. This is an everyday route for thousands of people, basically from the northern villages of Panchthar and several areas of Taplejung. The hassles start right from Chiwabhanjyang, which lies in the Nepal-India border, till Doramba of Ramechhap while the highway stretches till the western parts of Nepal. In this eastern road section, obstruction is almost regular at dozens of points. Landslides often block the road, which looks like small canal at some places with water flowing through its sides. On top of that, construction materials are kept at the road haphazardly.@nagariknetwork

Guide of the month: January 2018

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.
