It is never too late to chase your dreams. And Veteran actor Karishma Manandhar is one such example who is pursuing her dream for higher education, even in her forties. Proving that age is just a number 45-year-old Karishma appeared in Secondary Education Examination (SEE) this year began on Sunday. She is a student at Triveni Public Boarding School, Maitidevi and she is participating for SEE at Vijaya Memorial Secondary School, Dillibazar. “Age is just a number, if you have the zeal to be on the top. If you have enthusiasm like me, you can follow any of your dreams in life. And even if it is passing SEE in my age,” Karishma told My City. However, she lamented that people are questioning about her enrollment in school at this age. “People are blaming that I went school for publicity. Isn’t it baseless allegation toward me? Since I’ve already that fame and popularity while doing a film, why should I join a school for publicity?” She added. Karishma who says her first exam for SEE went well; she is a normal student at studies. “I’m not a brilliant student but I am determined to pass my SEE. And I am preparing for the rest of the subjects. To stay focus, I even switched off my cell phone.”

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.
