The Kailali District Court has sentenced Tikapur carnage conspirator Resham Chaudhary to life imprisonment, today. The court spelled the verdict for Chaudhary, along with 11 others for instigating the mass during Tharuhat movement in the district which caused the loss of nine lives, including a toddler, in 2015. As per the verdict, the twelve convicts will remain imprisoned till 2038. A single bench of Justice Parshuram Bhattarai issued the final verdict on the case following conclusion of debate between defendants and prosecutors. According to district court’s Shrestedar Indra Kathayat, 15 people including Tharuhat leader Lakshman Chaudhary, Lahuram Chaudhary and two minors have been released. Almost 42 months ago, on August 24, 2015, eight security personnel including Nepal Police Senior Superintendent (SSP) Lakshman Neupane and a two-year-old-toddler Tekendra Saud were killed as agitated mobs ruthlessly targeted the security personnel deployed to control the agitation. A case was filed against Resham Chaudhary along with 57 others for murder, conspiring to kill, theft, among other charges, during the agitation. Thirty-one of the accused are still absconding. The prime accused Resham Chaudhary, House of Representatives member elect from Kanchanpur-1, was recently sworn in as Member of Parliament.

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.
