Busy Life!

We miss out on so many small things around us when we are busy with our LIFE. I just realized this when I looked out from my balcony this morning. 

I woke up at 6 and made my coffee and sat on a small wooden chair at the balcony. I was just taking a deep breath and enjoying the morning view with sip of hot strong coffee. The morning view is always amazing from where I am sitting, but lately I have not been able to enjoy this moment because of my “new work schedule.” I am working late nights and waking up quite late in the mornings. I hardly get time to sit and take rest because I will always find something to do, even in free time. But today was different! It was Sunday and I woke up quite early. I had nothing to do, literally. I had done all my chores the other day – laundry, cleaning, dishes, garbage, etc. So I had Sunday free for myself. I can choose to do anything I wanted but I chose to stay at home. Home is also one of my favorite hangout places.
So I am at balcony, sipping coffee…

Infrequent Blogger, Me

Hello, readers! First of all, I would like to apologize for not writing for so long. Although I was meaning to write a new post for a very long time, I couldn’t because so much has happened in past four months in my life. First, I got a new job in Thimphu – I am working for a corporate company now. Second, I moved into a new apartment at Olakha. Third, I am learning to develop android apps online. Fourth, I am planning on starting a business very soon (currently working on business plans, capital, etc.). Fifth, I am assigned overtime work at office where I work till 9 in the evening. So, as you can see, I am juggling with lot of things. Most of my hours are spent on these five major decisions I have taken. As a result, I had to make few changes in my life, reluctantly. Now I don’t get time to read books as much as I used to. In the past, I used to read at least 2 books a month on average. Today, I read almost 1 book in two months on average. By the way, I am going to read more books on…

I was just going through my favorite list of blogs and I happened to read something really interesting. So I thought I should share with you guys, too.
What it basically says: We should stop speaking of “language preservation” and start using “language conservation.”


Do You Miss Your College Life?

A friend of mine asked me the other day, “Do you miss your college life?” I was immediately taken aback when I heard it because I didn’t know how to respond to this. I simply said, “I do sometimes,” with pretend smile on my face. He, of course, had a very long answer when I asked him same question. After I reached my apartment, I started to wonder if I really miss my college life. I never thought about it since I graduated from the college; it has almost been a year since I graduated – it’s exactly 359 days.
I have never wondered or thought about my college life because I was always occupied with office works and other non-office works. To put it mildly, I never got time to think about it at all. Yes, many of my friends have accused me of being busy all the time, and forgetful of all the fun things we did together. I guess they are right. I must be busy and forgetful as all my friends agree on this matter unanimously. Guilty as charged. 
But do I really miss my college life? Ummm…
Let’s…

My Opinion: Only Ada Rachu for Women

Kuensel published an article titled “only ada rachu for women” on 27th April, which explicitly stated: “Women across the country will now have to wear only ada rachu on all occasions, according to a circular from the home ministry.”
Since then, many (both men and women) have expressed their utter dislike and criticism for this new regulation.
Here, I would like to take the opportunity to express my personal opinion on this subject, but first let’s break down all the points stated in the article – i.e. to say points made by dzongkhag cultural officers supporting this new regulation. Women are mandated to drape only ada rachus and not patterned rachus for uniformity and to preserve the tradition.As the eight lucky sign patterns was entitled only for Royal Family members, women should wear only ada rachu.In the past, common women wore ada rachus while only Royal Family members wore different patterned rachus that were more elegant.Many women prefer different patterned rachus as they are n…

3 Simple Steps For Writing Every Day

Lately, I have been reading a lot about Writing. Considering my poor writing skills, I have been looking for resources and advices from experts on improving writing. After reading several articles, I have come to a conclusion that every single advice boils down to this: “If you want to be a good writer, you need to write every day.”
If I tell you that, I know many will say, “I have already heard about that,” or “I don’t have enough time,” or “I write everyday but I haven’t seen any changes,” and so on and so forth.
I know for a fact that you have heard it hundreds of times and it sounds cliché, but it’s a universal fact – if you want to improve writing, you need to write every day. 
Let me explain.
If you are like me, you think a lot about writing a new post for your blog. You want to write more often. You want to constantly update your blog on regular basis. You want to share and gain more readers.
But you don’t write a new post. You don’t write as often as you like. You don’t update…

Reading Is Probably The Most Enlightening Experience One Could Have

When I was little, I did not like reading… at all. I only read when I was forced to read one. My reading habit only developed after I reached high school. Many of my friends and teachers in high school were ardent readers and shared keen interest for books. Wherever I went I saw people carrying books in their hands – in assembly, in multipurpose hall, in dining hall, at balcony, at school garden, and, at rare occasions, I would see a guy carrying a book in his hand coming out from toilet. In his defense, I think he was making most out of his time by multitasking two businesses at a time. And I respect that.
The whole setting was different. Everything was big, beautiful and… old: students, teachers, buildings and books. The only new thing here was ‘us’ – new students from lower secondary schools. We were left spellbound by the whole experience around us, and the environment we were in. Eventually it did fade away – the spell – as we also became part of the school, like many students bef…
