Menuka Poudel, the first contestant of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2018, a blind contestant from Nepal is left with tremendous praises from the judges and receives 100 per cent votes from the jury. Many jury members are left with tears in their eyes after her performance. She is chosen for the mega auditions. The second singer on stage, Sonu Gill, croons to the tunes of Shekhar Ravjiani's Ishq Sufiyaana. He also received 100 per cent from the jury and gets a go-ahead for the mega auditions by the judges. One of the teacher and student duo take centre stage but drive away all the judges in a comic gesture. Another contestant, Sushil Kumar, floors the jury and judges with his entertainment performances. He's not selected though for his voice doesn't make the cut. One of the contestants who graces the stage of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, a shampoo vendor from Delhi, sings Tum Toh Thehere Pardesi. The jury and audience are thoroughly happy with his entertaining performance. In fact, the judges' trio even meets him on the stage. He gets a 93 per cent vote from the jury and gets a yay from all the three judges for the mega audition.

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.
