Story from the Kitchen

The other night I was in the kitchen; the rice was boiling in the rice cooker and I was peeling-off potatoes. Brother and Mathang were out to one of the neighbors’ house for dinner. it was only younger brother and myself at home.He was cutting onion and chili. Suddenly his eyes were tearful; that was when he was narrating the story about why people cry when we peel-off the onions. The following is what he has to say:
“There were once three friends: an Onion, a chili and a brinjal. They were always together; helping each other’s in times of hard and bad times. Likewise they were also enjoying thegood times and happiness together.
One day one of them did not come home from the work. It was brinjal. The other two were worried and went in search of it. They found on the way that the brinjal cold dead; which was hit by the boulder on his way home. The two friends felt sad, wept, took their friend home and did all the after- death rituals. The loss of best friend was too harsh, yet they became normal and the friendship between onion and chili became even more stronger. Unfortunately as the fate has it; once again it was the chili’s turn to not return home. Worried, the onion again went in search of his only and nobly friend and found again his friend who met the same fate.
Devastated with the unfolding of his life, he went search of a lama (spiritual master) after all the necessary rituals for his friend chili, as to why it happened to him; as to who will weep when he dies one day. The Lama told him that there will always be someone who will cry when he dies. That’s the reason why we become tearful when we pill-off the onions.”

The GPL thing

If you are an engineering student in one of the engineering colleges of India, you would probably know what I am going to write about. GPL is one of the most prominent activities you will notice in the engineering college (I am not sure if it also exists in other colleges).  If you have birth day or if something good has happened to you, or get job, then you aren't escaped! You are treated even worse than the animal for a moment with hard leather belts, with slippers or even with rod of sticks until you have zebra crossings on your back. You don’t know whether to cry or to laugh. That is the immediate price of happening something good.
Nobody knows exactly as to how this GPL thing came into existence, but there isn't one who isn't aware of what happens in GPL. GPL stands for Gand Pe Laat. A friend of mine tells me that the concept of GPL originally started within a group of friends; when something good happens to one of the friend, others used to whip his ass (Gand) out of…

Thank You Mother Earth

A home for every existence A life of unlimited you nurture Fresh air and water, clean ambience The bound of kindness and patience You give, sustain and give And never are you fatigue Nor you restrain, rest or refuse Yet the greedy mind you gratify Wants more, exploits and doesn’t care
Here I stand healthy and walk with pride With all the luxurious glories of yours We know you can’t permanently give For this is the law you already know Wisely we shall use you and your wealth And advocate the message of early signs Which you displayed loud and clear Today, tomorrow or the next day We shall revive, protect and sustain
Thank you Mother Earth.....

13th October- Unforgettable Day

Life is strange you know.  So many things are happening and yet to us, it is the same and as usual. We hardly notice the change and the things that happen around us. Today is an important day for Bhutan and Bhutanese; a day to begin with prayer for long life of our king and queen; a day to celebrate over reminding ourselves that there is always hope with king and queen be side us at any cost.  I wish my king and queen a very happy wedding anniversary. May the land of thunder dragon always shine under your dynamic leadership and guidance! Unfortunately it was a bad and sad day for me! I nearly escaped deadly accident. I don’t know how many has been lucky enough just like me today at the very same time. Some are just so unfortunate.  Just yesterday before I went to bed, I had this very disturbing news from Perth, Australia about a brother of mine by relation who is studying under government scholarship. There was this very disturbing note by himself on Facebook, a heart breaking confess…
