that needs to be used in such that dir. name is put in a way say:

n="~/foo bar"

if forced to do

$ pushd "$n"

when used in such

$ popd

bash: popd: ~/foo bar: No such file or directory

Any sincere guide to solve is invaluable helpful

n=~/'foo bar'

or if you prefer n="${HOME}/foo bar" since ~/ is the same as ${HOME}/
