2019 Miss Nepal || Anushka Shrestha

Posted by Anup Baral | May 12, 2019 :
Anushka Shrestha was crowned Miss Nepal World 2019 as she beat 24 other contestants at the grand finale of the pageant held in the Capital on May 9. Shrinkhala Khatiwada, Miss Nepal World 2018 crowned her 23-year-old successor, who hails from Kathmandu. Chief judge Ila Sharma asked the final seven contestants: “If we focus more on our duties, responsibilities rather than focussing just on our rights and our freedom we can make this world a better place. What do you think?” Shrestha’s answer that won her the title was: “I completely agree with that statement that focusing on our responsibilities more than our rights would certainly change things for the better. Rights and responsibilities are two parts of the same coin, we have been hearing that. We have talked a lot about what should be done for us. But it is high time that we ask ourselves — what am I doing? To ask ourselves and be able to look ourselves in the mirror and say I have fulfilled all my rights therefore I can put my hand on my heart and say that I deserve this, to be able to do that one surely needs to fulfil all our rights including that of a citizen, a person, friend or a partner. Only when we fulfil our responsibilities can we ask for our rights to be given to us.”

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.
