The western Thief – Ngalong Gorben (Khegpa)

Did you ever hear of the word Ngalong Gorben? It is a term used in my community. It literally means the western thief, commonly called Khegpas As a little kid, when we used to refuse and obey our parents or elders, they used to say “Ngalong Gorben gi budu Na”; ‘the western thief will take you’ And we used to instantly obey and get with them, because we imagined Khegpas to be no difference than Ghosts. Such was in fact one good trick to allure and lend in the ears of an innocent kid to their wish and I am sure such traits do exist even to this day.  And surprisingly I am yet again amused to hear about this, I feel nostalgic! Yesterday I called my parents, just a normal call to ask if they were doing fine. They were doing fine, only problem that they and the people over there are alarmed by the presence of Ngalong Gorben, the Khegpas. Frightening the people over there. Everyone seems to be cautious and alert. They said that after the dusk and before dawn, they are unable to roam or walk …

I am sorry

I am sorry I can’t please everyone; everyone who matters to me even in a little way. I can’t say Hello or Hi and thank everyone who has in some way made difference in some point of my life. I can neither avoid every bad situation or trouble nor smile every moment for I am also human being with same emotions. I am sorry I can’t be winner always; sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail; that is but the very fact of life and I believe it is completely fine. I am sorry I can’t keep all my words, why do you want the secret to die and decay with you anyway? I can’t avoid hurting someone in some way for everything is two sided; when one is pleased, the others are hurt, can we hammer a nail without making a hole? And is it not natural? I am sorry I can’t always stretch and lend my helping hand, for my hands are also tight sometimes. I can’t always be loyal or decent. Rules are made to be broken, otherwise why rules? I am sorry for I am arrogant sometimes. What kind of people are we, if we can’t…

I have a dream

I have a dream that some fine day I would be able to serve the true purpose of my life; that I would live this life without any pinch of regret. I have a dream to serve those who served me with all the good wishes and prayers. I have a dream to help those who helped realize my dreams and aspirations; to love and care who loved and cared me for. I have a dream to walk an extra mile for those who made just a leap of step for me. I have a dream to fulfill all the wishes of my dear parents of whom I owe so much; to be loyal and serve them with utmost sincerity and dedication. I have a dream to face all the corners of darkness this life has to offer and get through to the light; shine and show the world that even though you are nothing extraordinary, life has the equal share for  those who dares and that one who doesn’t dare, complains a lot. I have a dream to work, work with my heart and head in coherence for the good, not just for me but for the organization I work for. I have a dream to love s…

I wish you are here with me

I wish you are here with me Because right now everything is alright The stars and the moon is with me A perfect moment of relief and comfort The little flowers are dancing with me In the shower of joy and happiness I gaze around to see you but afar It hurts me to know this fact I miss you and I think about you
Don’t you miss me sometime? The good times, bad, sad and silly The moments that make us as one Engraved in the veins of heart These gives me reason to smile Because you are always with me Every beat of my heart is but a buzzer That reminds me that I ain’t alone This gives me hope and the strength To strive and thrive in the worst ordeals That your absence fetches forth I wish you are here with me
Every little thing matters As tiny as a pinhole, As short as the morning dew For life is but moments Life is so partial you know First a hell of courage to say Hello Then it has us separated by miles Does it not feel guilty? Or even a pinch of pity? I wish you are here with me

Happy Losar

Long time ago, #losar was just about having good food and drinks or wearing new garments and playing around. Then it made some sense; losar was (is) much more than that! It was (is) about families, getting together, once again rejoicing the moments lost and enriching the grip of relations. It is relaxing and celebrating the victory, accepting the failure, healing the hurt, forgiving and forgetting and welcoming yet another mess of a life in store whole heartedly with all the good wishes and aspirations. It is about righting the wrongs of the past, filling the pot holes of slip-ups, mending the patches of failures and understanding to grow and broaden with age.
In nutshell, Losar is all about redefining oneself as a person, as a human being.
But sadly for now (perhaps for the rest of my life) I will have to postpone it all, because it is still the#working day like any other usual day. I don’t know for how many times I will have to postpone such important days, yet this offers me yet ano…
