The Storytellers: I had wings, Just didn't know how to fly - Mr. Binayak Shah

Mr. Binayak Shah started his music career as a guitarist with the band called ‘Crossroads’ in the early 90’s. It was a humble beginning for him. He was young and loved the innocence found in the music. He was passionate about music from the very beginning. They already had a hit song “Maya meri maya” followed by an album. The band was gaining fame and recognition but Mr. Binayak was not happy. He was not satisfied with his playing. He felt that he still needed to learn more. That is when he decided to pursue music as a career and went to U.S. He went to Musicians Institute in California and studied music for 8 years. He came back to Nepal after 11 years but nothing much has changed. Listen to the full story of Mr. Binayak Shah to find out how he adapted to the changes here in Nepal.

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.
