THOSE LEFT BEHIND/ Bhutanese Refugees News Documentary by D.B

Posted by Anup Baral | July 25, 2018 :
This report is based on the true story of single elderly men and women living in Beldangi refugee camp separated from their loved ones who were resettled in western countries since 2007. Some of them willingly denied resettlement. Some of them had no choice other than staying in refugee camp. Today the situation is even worse and painful. Some elderly people are so lonely that they have none to share their pain and suffering. Donor agencies are slowly taking foot out of these refugee's solution bringing a nightmare for THOSE LEFT BEHIND. And the part of report also covers the initiative taken by volunteers group formed by intellectual bodies from within the camp to stabilize the situation and to provide basic personal care to these people. But this group needs financial and personal support to run the program smoothly in future. The program initiated by these volunteers might stop if they face continued lack of resource and support. We must praise and pray for their good work. Report prepared by: D.B Gurung Camera/Narration/Editing: D.B Gurung

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.
