Butwal-Narayanghat road improvement plan held up

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha April 7th, 2019 :
The Dasarath Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Tripureshwar, Kathmandu. Holding 30,000,[1] it is the biggest stadium in Nepal. It is named after Dashrath Chand, one of four great martyrs of Nepal. The planned upgradation of the Butwal-Narayanghat section of the East-West Highway will be delayed as the Department of Roads (DoR) has scrapped the process to appoint a contractor for the project. The 115-km Butwal-Narayanghat would be widened to four lanes with a loan from the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The selection process was cancelled after the ADB disqualified the lowest bidder citing technical reasons. A total of 25 companies from China, India and Italy participated in the global tender issued 15 months ago, and the DoR had forwarded the bids of three companies to the ADB. “The ADB disqualified the first company due to technical reasons while the financial status of the second company was poor which didn’t allow us to enter into an agreement,” said Suresh Poudel, deputy director of ADB Project Directorate Office of the DoR which looks after projects funded by the multilateral lender.

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.
