Development of Biratnagar.

Posted by Anup Baral | June 10, 2019 :
The industrial city Biratnagar is also known as the centre of various political movements. It is the homeland of renowned political leaders, including BP Koirala, Girija Prasad Koirala and Manmohan Adhikari. But the city bears no such impression. The city that is also the gateway to the eastern hills and mountains, with lots of touristic attractions, needs multidimensional development efforts to make it a true metropolis. In this backdrop, Modnath Dhakal of The Rising Nepal talked to Bhim Parajuli, mayor of the metropolis. The newly elected leader shared the vision for the development of the city, status of resource mobilisation, Local Level Governance Act, industrialization and its impact on the economy and public life. Establishment of industries will be regulated and they will be allowed to run in certain locations. Industrial and business hubs will be created in the city. New programmes will be developed and implemented to fight with global warming. The city has begun to work to reduce the dust problem and to enhance greenery.

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.
