Sanskrit University Vice-chancellor Kul Prasad Koirala detained at TIA

Posted by Anup Baral | July 09, 2018 :
The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has stated that Nepal Sanskrit University Vice-chancellor Kul Prasad Koirala, who was barred from boarding a flight to Canada at Tribhuvan International Airport yesterday, never got his leave approved from joint chancellor (education minister) or the chancellor (prime minister). The police detained Koirala from TIA yesterday while he was about to board a flight to Canada to participate in the World Sanskrit Conference slated for July 9 to 13. The police then took him to the prime minister’s official residence, saying PM KP Sharma wanted to meet him. After waiting for around an hour at Baluwatar, Koirala, who was appointed to the post in August 2015 by the Sushil Koirala-led government, was told the PM could not meet him due to his busy schedule. By then, the flight had already taken off.

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.
