This year's Laxmi puja consumes less than 16 MW of electricity than last year

Except in the industrial sector, electricity is the most demanding day of Lakshmi Puja in most of Nepal. Lakshmi is used to light up the house on the day of worship and decorate the house with incandescent lamps. However, this year Lakshmipuja Day is less demanding than last year, according to Nepal Electricity Authority. Kulman Ghising, under the leadership of Nepal Electricity Authority, had freed the country from load shedding three years ago since the day of Lakshmipuja. This time, NEA had issued a notification to the customers who were freed from the darkness of the blatant loadshedding, to light the lamp lightly and enjoy the flickering. Nevertheless, Lakshmi of the festival always needs authority to meet the high demand for electricity during the worship day. But this time, the power consumption was less than 5 MW less than last year's Lakshmi Puja day, according to NEA.According to NEA, the highest demand during the last financial year was 100 MW. The Authority had estimated that there could be 100 MW of electricity demand on Sunday. But the control over the electricity leakage, consumer consumption of energy-less bulbs and the demand this year is also unprecedented due to the festival.The highest demand for the federal capital Kathmandu valley this year is 100 MW, according to the authority. The Authority has supplied 500 MW from its power houses, 500 MW from the private sector and 1 MW from India. This year, the amount of imports from India has also been reduced due to the addition of 3 MW Upper Trishuli 'A' and 1 MW Kulekhani III and some private sector hydropower projects to the power system this year.

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.
