Dahal to face ‘no trouble’ in US despite complaint filed with FBI

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha March 19th, 2019 :
Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal will face ‘no trouble’ in the US even as a complaint has been filed with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) against him as a ‘terrorist’, diplomatic sources said. The sources said filing a complaint with law enforcement agencies including the FBI does not mean that anything will be done. “Former prime minister Dahal had decided to go to the US for the treatment of his wife following an assurance from US officials that he would not have to face any trouble. So, any such complaint does not carry much importance,” the sources said. Sources said the US authorities have separately issued a ‘no investigation’ circular concerning Dahal — the former rebel leader who led the Maoist armed insurgency in Nepal—to ensure that he would not face any trouble during his stay in the US. US officials in Kathmandu, however, could not immediately confirm if such a circular was issued in the aftermath of the complaint lodged by Tilak Shrestha of Kentucky State University.

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.
