Courage

When life pulls down yet you don’t give up
When life’s cruel and you don’t give shit
When love betrays to take  its toil 
But you fight back brave and not spoil 
When your boss is wrong and you give voice 
When the crowd scares and yet you face
When the doubts cloud your judgement
Yet you embrace until you are triumphant 
When the fire of rage inside goes savage
Yet you calms down with water of patience 
When the fear engulfs and you step back
Only to return stronger and composed 
Courage is not being rude or arrogant 
Courage is simplicity with persistence

Letter to my wife

My dear Wife,
I don’t know if you remember or not that today is but a special day for us. It may be almost the end of this very day. I have intentionally waited this long hours just to see if you also remember and remind me which you didn’t and maybe that’s because you thought the same as me- waiting for me to remind you first. But if there is one thing that I have learnt through the years with you, it’s that you don’t always show first, instead you wait for me to see first, do first or remind first for this matter. Well, then I just want to say, HAPPY SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY MY DEAR.

Days and years may go and another come by, yet the memories we created for ourself, the best times we have had through the college days and after will only remind us that life as ‘US’ has been abut a beautiful and wonderful journey.. It only means we are here for real. Yes, the boat that we sailed hasn’t been that smooth, but then whose life is perfect anyway? It’s through the storms of struggle and fights that we get rain of  happiness and satisfaction. Aren’t you happy that it’s been seven long years now and that we have somehow managed well. With age of bond that we share for each other, it will only get Better for sure. It will only be exciting you know dear. I LOVE YOU MY DEAR. 

One of the greatest gift you have provided for us is our little champ. I feel so blessed to be part of this wonderful thing called Family. Ever since he joined our circle, the bond, I must be frank and I tell you  life has been pretty tough and challenging, but, but that  doesn’t mean I have not enjoyed every bit of moment.  It has taught me so many life long lessons that has made me only a better father, good husband and perhaps a matured lover in my own way although bit forgetful. But again, this to my defense only means that life isn’t perfect after all and so are we you know. 

So on this memorable day, I just wanna remind you that inspite of the life being pretty harsh on us, inspite of the family and other’s presssure, inspite of life taking us down I will still hang by your side and remain at your back and walk with you no matter what. I will support you through thick and thin. I will laugh and smile with you and cry with you if that’s what’s required. And The most important I  will never forget to love you. 


With lots of Love

 (Hubby)

Spring

Spring is a beautiful season of the year. It’s time when all the crushed and ruined  hopes are renewed with lush orchestra of joy, happiness and newness. It is the time for one to leave behind all the cold, harsh and miseries that the dreadful and cruel winter had brought in; set aside the past, prepare and ponder for the future with all the prayers and blessings collected over, forgive and forget once and for all.

Spring brings in with it an ample of time to rejoice and rejuvenate. It is the culmination of a new beginning. With beautiful and bountiful blossoms all around with pleasant scent and calm weather, what can we expect more than this to start a new go?What do we need more then these to dream big and plan big? 

Spring is season of love and happiness, although for farmers it’s busy one with all the works. It’s a season to sow new hope and aspirations. So leave behind all the unwanted baggage, start fresh, keep dreaming for the better,  never rule out and give up. Life  is of course always a matter of how we choose to see act. 

Good day folks....!

Happiness

Where the mountains are capped by snow
Where Serene and chilling streams flow 
Where the kings with golden heart serves
Where the subjects soothes in chants 
Dances on the rolling suite with pure joy 
Basks under the sublime sun with toy 
Of eternal bliss, peace and comfort 
Where the one’s loyalty can’t be measured 
Where untarnished culture echos far and wide
Where age old traditions are the biggest aide
A real heaven on earth indeed
Happiness beyond one’s greed

When is life fair anyway?

I was wandering and wondering along the woods
Suddenly My mind crosses through the days of childhood 
When each girls dreams one day of being princess
When her mom is the epitome of All she wishes 
And her dad the hero, the knight in shining armour
When each boy dreams of that charming prince 
When his mom portrays all qualities he would one day browse
When his dad is but a friend, a guide  by his side
When little siblings are but their goal 
And the reflection of their soul 
When every little hope is watered by all kinds of effort and bite 
And when all the tyrannies are overcame with triumph 
When finally a day comes to reckon 
When the princess meets his Prince Charming 
Life has cruel and disheartening plans 
The boat they boarded capsizes 
On their maiden journey through ups and down   
Through the rugged terrains of high and low 
Dreams shatters to nightmares and begins to haunt 
Hopes turn sour and belittles their hunt 
In anguish and agony they stare above 
And utters Why us, why us?

Call with Dad

After tiring day at work, Sonam went straight home to take rest, to take a short nap, but the sleep was nowhere near, so he decided to call his dad back at village just to see if his mom and dad were doing good. At the other end of the connection, his father’s voice looked tired and exhausted. He felt pity! He inquired if his dad was alright. Well, his wasn’t sick, only tired from the day’s work. His dad has been continuously working in the jungle with the rocks, making piece of bricks to construct house for some people in return for some cash. Sonam felt real pity and told why he has to get involved in such heavy works at this age; that he can of help, now that he is employed and settled.  His dad is almost 60 years now. His father’s reply shocked and made the tears roll down his cheeks.

His father said: “How much and how many people will you help? Even you are not sufficient yourself; having tough time meeting the ends” Sonam felt wounded, filled with guilt like someone shot a direct arrow to his heart. “What have I done? Did I forget that parents should be the first priority for any child? Did I just forget that what I am today is because of them? Did I just make the biggest blunder by marrying too early and starting my own family too early” he wondered. That one sentence left him blank for some time until his dad at the other end said what happened?  Sonam said he was fine and that there was some glitch in the connection instead. He felt devastated with guilt. His dad wasn’t finished yet and said that he was going to try even harder when his strength can so he doesn’t have to bother him. Sonam felt guilty even more, the guilt of being a useless and helpless kid.
“Are you there sonam?” his father said.

“I am sorry, something came up, I have to go. I will call you back. Please take care papa and give regards to mom. Bye” sonam replied and disconnected the call.
Back on the couch, sonam wasn’t busy nor did something come up. He couldn’t believe the change life has brought about upon his life; he couldn’t resist the guilt, thinking what his aging parents has had to go through whole of their life for their sake - first bringing them up, giving education and now for their own sake when its time instead to reap their work with their children preparing for their next encounter- Death.
Is this so-called the cycle of life?  He wondered…..

What’s in the name?

I often wonder how one would communicate with another if there wasn’t such thing as name and the so-called name doesn’t even exist at all? Luckily (or unluckily) we all have names, various ones. It becomes easy and convenient for us to communicate.  However not all names are different; most Bhutanese in particular have similar or same names. Just out of curiosity, I typed my name in the search box of Facebook and I was actually surprised to see pages full of names same as mine. As much as it eases us, sometimes having similar or same name can become ugly and unpleasant. It can become cumbersome with serious consequences like the recent incident of Bhutan Airline (Tashi air) at Kolkata. It was shocking to see people sharing the wrong news. Almost all of Indian News outlets wrote about the incident as the one that happened with Royal Bhutan Airlines (Drukair) instead of Bhutan airlines. This questions the very credibility of those papers. How can one trust if they spread the wrong information just because they were careless and least bothered to scrutinize. Is there not enough time to investigate such details which can have huge impact? Are all news reporters the same- so hungry to report and write half-baked stories? It raises more questions than answers. As a major means of communication, newspapers must stick with facts and figures supplemented by in-depth cover ups, investigations and confirmations. And especially for commercial companies like airlines, right information is very important and sensitive because it is dealing with the flow of people in and out and such wrong news and information (which people depends up on) can have devastating and irreparable consequences both immediate and in the long run.

Fortunately Drukair, the Royal Bhutan Airline chose immediately to release press righting the wrong. Newspapers in Bhutan should learn lesson from recent incident. Even the National newspaper Kuensel which wrote about another incident about Drukair flight KB205 in the earlier week having to land back at Delhi airport was also overstated. The aircraft wasn’t mid-way as stated in the paper. The aircraft just took off when a fault of the rear cargo door was shown on the ECAM and it had to land back to rectify. That’s what the crew did and I wonder what breaking news was there to report? Incidents such as these are common for aircraft is also combination of machines and machine does fail you know. Anyway that’s just the clarification.


So there are both advantage and disadvantage of having same or similar names. We are defined; shaped and known by the names. We get attracted by the unique and the striking nature of it. Today’s generation gives a lot of time and energy to the names. If you see the census, most of the older generations have their names given out of love and pamper but often short and funny. The shops have all sorts of name to attract customers, organizations does the same. You see there is also a pinch of politics in there; so there actually are a lot of things in the mere thing called name.
