Posted by Dhruba Shrestha March 19, 2019 :
The widening of Tripureshwor-Kalanki-Nagdhunga road, a crucial section of strategic road networks (SRN) in Kathmandu Valley will start this fiscal year. The contractor selection process has reached the final stage, according to the Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport (MoPIT). The section is being extended under two separate packages — Tripureshwor-Kalanki and Kalanki-Nagdhunga. As per the Kathmandu Valley Road Improvement Project (KVRIP), the Tripureshwor-Kalanki road is planned to be widened to six lanes (18 metres) from the existing four lanes, which is 12 metres wide and it will also have improved pavement for pedestrians, besides alignment dividing green belt in the middle of the road. Similarly, Kalanki-Nagdhunga section will be upgraded to four lanes from the seven-metre two lanes at present. “The construction of Tripureshwor-Kalanki-Nagdhunga road is projected to start within this year,” said Tulasi Prasad Sitaula, secretary of MoPIT. He added that work on clearing right-of-way (RoW) on both sides of the section will start within the next three months, as contractor selection work has reached the final stage.

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.
