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…

The Three Deadliest Words in the world

The past week has kept me busy. When the friends and fellow Bhutanese were having good time celebrating the 33rd birth day of our beloved king, the fifth Druk Gyalpo, I had my first unit exams. I had no good time even to wish my king, yet better late than never, I would like to wish my king a very happy birth day, may the blessings of Buddha Amitayus always be with you and may the eternal sun of happiness always shine in the land of thunder dragon under your kind guidance and dynamic leadership.
People say there are choices to everything; I don’t know how far this is true. There is a time when nothing works and you have nothing but to resort to certain things which isn't your choice. A lot of choices on the other hand seem to spoil the very sanctity of our good instinct, while no choice is but a curse that haunts and leave us dejected. Sometimes we end up making wrong choices that result a lot of regrets later. Does the god play dice too?


Some days back, I was randomly browsing t…

A Good Surprise!

"When we are desperate, deprived and in need of, even a penny is more worth than pound" This is a sentence which I ask myself too often to remind me whenever I reach some point along the journey of my life. I am sure every student, like me at one point of their time, had in their mind this very sentence, particularly when you are broke.(..:P) The situation is different for others, for well-offs a even a pound is nothing, they care less, expects more and they are lavish, because they live in a world completely different than us although we are all on this planet earth.
Likewise, for people like me, forget others, just getting qualified after tenth standard to continue the studies in the government school (even with not so good branch) is very much a big thing. This is not only a comfort to myself, but to my parents too, who sweats day in and day out to sacrifice for me. It is not only my success, but their's’s too. Such simple things and small achievements not only bring…

For You My Dear

Every time I am sad and sorry You cheer me and make me merry Every time I fall and lose hope You lift me with bundles of scope Every time I get struck on the track You find me and help me crack You make my days lighter and healthier You make me feel more and wealthier You make me feel loved and cared Which can never be measured or compared You complete me and keep me alive Yes! With you, life is easy to survive You are what you are- the real you And that is what I like most about you
Far and separated we maybe this valentine Definitely we will next and together we will dine Together we will feel the warmth of the day Together we will sail this life and find way The way that will make each day but valentine For life is too short to brood over the rare shine

      HAPPY VALENTINE DAY!..

ལོ་གསར་ལེགས་སྨོན།(Losar Lek Moen)

འདས་པའི་ནམ་ལོ་ཆུ་ཕོ་འབྲུག་ལོ་འདི་།། ད་འདས་ཨིན་རུང་ཕོ་མོ་རང་སོར་ལུ།། ལེགས་དང་མ་ལེགས་འཁྲུལ་དང་མ་འཁྲུལ་ཚུ།། སེམས་ལས་བརྗེད་པར་ཕང་པའི་ལོ་ཅིག་ཨིན།།
ཨིན་རུང་ལོ་གསར་སྦྲུལ་ལོ་ཤར་ཚེ་ལ།། འདས་པའི་ལོ་ལྷག་དགའ་སྐྱིད་ཉི་མ་ཤར།། ནད་ཡམ་མུ་གེ་འཁྲུགས་རྩོད་ལ་སོགས་པ།། མ་འབྱུང་རེ་བའི་ལེགས་སྨོན་རང་གིས་ཞུ།
རང་ལུགས་ནམ་ལོ་ཆུ་མོ་སྦྲུལ་ལོ་འདི།། འབྲུག་མི་ཡོངས་ཀྱི་ཁག་ཆེ་ལོ་ཡང་ཨིན།། ཐེངས་གཉིས་ཚོགས་རྒྱན་སྐྱུར་བའི་མཐའ་མ་ལུ།། ཕན་ཅོག་གྲུབ་པའི་འཐུས་མི་སྐྱུར་བར་ཤོག།
ཕྲོས་རང་བསམ་པའི་དོན་དང་རེ་བ་ཡང་། མཐར་ཕྱིན་ལེགས་པར་འགྲུབ་པའི་སྨོན་ལམ་ཡོད།། ཡར་དཀོན་མཆོག་གསུམ་དང་ལྷ་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་མ།། གསོལ་བ་འདེབས་སོ་འགྲུབ་པར་བྱིན་གྱི་རློབས།།
བཀྲ་ཤིས་བདེ་ལེགས།
 Happy Water Female Snake Year!..

Questions we might ask our self

Bhutan is a peaceful country with no discrimination of any kind, but just for the sake of argument, if we look broadly in skeleton, we find that western part of the country is more developed in terms of any kind like infrastructure or living standard than the eastern. This is probably because of the so many reasons like the location of capital and most industries in the western region. Most part of the Eastern Bhutan are either only on the path towards so-called the development or some parts are yet to taste its flavor. This is just the fact.

Fortunately or unfortunately, the place where we come from is a hell lot to be imagined! Our Geog center is yet to be connected by the farm road and I am not ashamed to say it again here that even after about seven years, the road construction is just on midway to its destination, which otherwise in normal case would take at the maximum three or four years (my own estimation). And it will be still couple of years when people over t…

The First Date

The mid summer sun was almost into the horizon of the mountain. From the opened window, Dorji could feel the warm and a gentle evening  wind. He nervously got himself dressed-A black jeans and red shirt. He looked at the mirror and said himself: "You can do it; come on! you are matured now". Just at that moment, the Nokia tune of his mobile phone rang. It was his love- Karma inquiring whereabouts him. He replied in attentive voice; 'I am on my way'
'Where are you going Kota (brother) in the evening?' Asked his sister from the other room, where she is weaving kira. Dorji pretended to be normal and causal. 'A high school friend is calling me; I will be back by dusk Ana (sister), it has been for sometime since we met.' Lied Dorji confidently.
With some kind of excitement mixed with nervousness, he walked hurriedly towards the Memorial chorten; the meeting point discussed before in the call. It was first time Dorji is going to meet karma after he expressed…

College Life- Golden Life

Not everyone in life invariably succeeds to get to the college. Some fail along the way, while for others, even if succeeded, there are reasons to blame and the twist of karmic connection sways them away. The weather isn't always fair and fine for everybody. Well, for me fortunately or unfortunately I was able to get to College. I was one amongst 140 students who availed the government Scholarship in the year 2009 to study abroad. Since then I have frequently wondered as to why everybody says college life is a golden life.
It was on 29th August 2009 when I actually knew my Placement- NIT Allahabad. I was pleased and excited to explore the place, away from home. I can never forget my first train journey (in third tier AC) to the college from Hashimara (West Bengal) to Allahabad Junction. "Where are you from?" said the Ticket Taker (TT) of the train. 'We are from Bhutan, going to college ' said my friend. 'Enjoy the journey' 'they are our guests, so tr…
