PLEASE ANSWER ME

Tell me it’s Ok Or it is not Now that we met in this life And you have disturbed my mind Please answer me
Tell me it’s OK To be silent sometimes No call, no SMS, no email Silence is golden you know Now that you know the value Please answer me
The sun that rises from the east Who doesn’t know it has heat? The stream that flows down the vale Who knows not it’s calm and quite? Now that we know each other
Please answer me

The Expectations

July 13th 2013 was another historic day for Bhutan and Bhutanese people. The day was when Bhutan underwent the second parliamentary elections. Surprisingly and even shockingly for some, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had a comfortable win with 32 seats against Druk Phuensum Tshogpa (DPT) with just 15 seats for the national Assembly. The people had spoken their voice, made choice and entrusted the new government. Democracy maybe just five years old in Bhutan, yet it seems Bhutanese people have understood what politics really is. And this only means that people can be never deceived or fooled.
There were so many stories, both good and bad particularly on the eve of the poll day, so many allegations, accusations and lies; and as an observer, I think these are only indications of politics becoming dirty. I am certain that these will only get worse with the time. Let’s wait and see any way.
With the verdict out, with the choice made aloud by the people, it is time to think and act as…

The Irony behind ‘Zhungka Songo’

Have you ever heard of this word: “Zhungka Songo”? Well, it may be first time to many but I am sure most Sharchops would know its meaning. It is a word that is commonly used by most of the people of eastern part especially by those in the remote parts of the country. Zhungka Songo (roughly government people) literally means those people who are educated and employed, and who resides in urban areas away from one’s home. But not all who dwells in urban centers are fortunate enough to live equal. The name has also been overused and it also means to people who have abandoned their home in villages and migrated to towns and cities in search of better life. And perhaps this is one word that encompasses all the reasons behind Rural- Urban Migration- the most common and prominent problem that Bhutan is facing; leading to yet another critical problem “the unemployment problem”
There are places especially the remote parts of the country which are not yet connected by road or electricity; wher…

The impression and the Hopes

It was on 20th August 2013 that I formally joined Drukair Corporation Ltd, under Engineering and Maintenance Division. For about three weeks I (we) was attached with the executives (managers) who do all the paper works to get familiarized with the work flow of the division and company as a whole; to know the interdependence of different sections under the division, to get the taste of how things run in the world of work. It was pretty new world for me and was very engaging; we were briefed and encouraged with what we ought to do down the line, the roles and responsibilities as part of the organization; in fact everything; from personal to official, from mere gossips to insightful information and advices and about how our career prospects will be in future and how we need to get prepared and adjusted towards achieving it. One particular word that has had continuous effect and which will remind me throughout is about being very careful and safe. It was on the very first day when my mana…

Getting Together in Blog

It has been for some time since I posted any article on my blog. The series of examinations and the adjustments with new lease of life has kept me bit busy. But I have never missed to read an article of the blogs I follow in my leisure time which I enjoy and learn a lot. That was when I came across Ma’am Rekha’s Post about blogger conference which I liked very much to be part of it. It is a very good way of interacting and knowing better. I am yet to learn a lot, but certainly initiative such as this would really keep those with same interest together and I look forward to future innovations as well. Thank you Rekha ma'am and all others who took keen interest in being part of  blogger e-conference as most say.

Why did you start blogging in the first place? And what is the story behind your blog title? I first heard and knew about the word ‘blogging’ when I was in the twelve standard in 2008 and since then I always wanted to explore behind what it means. I am boy by birth but when i…
