The Housing Rent and Civil Servant's Pay Hike

Last time when the new government was formed, and they played black jack with the civil servants and their hike in salaries, there was a bit of tussle which the house owners as usual had won. 

So this goes a bit of a questioning something: we don't know that we know that we should know? Addressing the elephant that will be in our living rooms in coming days, the hike that might be there for the civil servants. With upcoming election and one of the many cards which the politicians will have in their manifestos, PAY HIKE!

Who gets the credit?

Lately, I feel so lost in everything and I hope there won't be much words and feelings to comprehend anything. Henceforth, I have learned to feel nothing. Whether this is sadness or contentment, I seriously don't know what I am feeling.

The Social Media Star.

Most often, I have wondered why is it that we humans crave for attention and approval from everybody? At times the circle of juries that we want to be addressed and appreciated by increases and at times it decreases.

Is anything any worth?

It's going to be 5:00 am, and I am not home, not that I was out drinking with my friends or was partying hard. I am just working on a tender document which was assigned to me a few days ago : 3 days to submission. In next five hours, I am meant to submit this tender - which will of course shape and change the entire building rules and regulations of Bhutan - not that I am capable of doing it but the tender document is about changing few of the guidelines and rules.

The World and Me.

There was a time, when I would get very much impetuous, I would get effected and affected by every little thing on news, perhaps too disturbed. There was a time I hated Obama for visiting Israel and not Palestine, I was in a train reading the Time Magazine, and throughout the journey I was so much affected by the hypocrisy of world politics. Didn't the Palestinians' have children? Didn't they have lives? There were many things that ran in my mind and there I laid sad and angry.

The Year that was 2017

My year started with a new chapter, I left my previous job and headed for Thimphu. That time, I had only 14k in my pocket, and that was the last salary cheque I received from my previous job. I booked an apartment in Thimphu and I wasn't sure whether I would be in a position to pay rents for two apartments. I asked the owner at Thimphu, who later, became a good friend, for some time to pay the advance. But few projects were there in hand and I wasn't sure whether I would be in a position to clear off the advance. Trust me, I lived in one of the most luxurious homes in Thimphu for few months. It's like I really don't know when I will be successful, but I already have stories to narrate over my preceding struggling days.

Where to Work? How to Work?

Most of the secrets remain clandestine to a doer, and albeit it seems very abysmal to retain one's wisdom, most do it for the sake of not being perished and wiped out from the market. 

I understand that there are many graduates who are currently unemployed and now they have to face their monsters of insecurities. There will be moments whereby one will even doubt oneself over one's capacities and capabilities. I only have few things to say to them, believe in yourself and always try to learn a new skill, like Miyamato Mushashi said in his Book Of Five Rings:

Upon Busy-Ness!

I look at the table, which doesn't belong to me, but is stacked upon with heaps of papers, papers that leap upwards as if they have ambitions to touch the ceilings. Now, that's too dramatic to write, what else could a person do, when he has read most of the dramatic books and watched dramatic movies all along - story from one amongst many who were fed mainstream junk all his life.

We are amazing.

If it were just three years ago, and if I had to face all the situations that I am facing right now, trust me, I won't be alive. 

I won't call it maturity nor would I call it experience, but somewhere in between, I think I out grew all these troubles which shall remain as clandestine memories. My only answer, perhaps, love does it all, and 'hope' for better tomorrows, that we should look upon.

Reader and Writer - Today's World!

"That was a nice book Sir, and I must tell you, one amongst the bravest ones in Bhutan", I complimented him. 
He would just smile, "It was after drinking some bottles of beer that I had the knack to write those chapters". We both laughed and discussed everything and anything, and yet, nothing made a sense.
