Politics and Us?

In the year 2007, I got selected for scholarship, just like hundreds of students from Bhutan. My placement, was in India - the largest democracy in world. 

I was sent into a government college then, and it was a good college. There were various students from various nations and there were Indians from every state of India. The concept for formally known as RECs and currently NITs, was that they wanted to mix Indians from all the states of India. I was told verbally, by my fellow colleagues then, that it was  Nehru's idea to mix Indians from all the states, so that these engineers would serve India better, understanding each other. It was a good concept, but then, humans would be humans, we had people divided, and I would jokingly tell them at times, 'it's a mini India in here'. Despite that segregation, it was interesting to find how they unified during few agendas.

Moonlighting and Us?

As we all have succumbed to the mess and controversies on social media, and have actually had knack to lose our peace of minds, I wonder over an issue. 

Recently there was a news about few civil servants doing their part times as Taxi Drivers. And at times, I think, I have given up on thoughts, and have started to follow the mob. I now, don't follow a news till its end, exactly as the mainstream media wanted all of us to be. 

Anyway, it was debatable whether a civil servant should do their part time or not? My stand, they should!

Standing behind this window shutter, I lean and rest my arms on it and watch outside, I get lost into my thoughts. Several times, while stealing glimpses of people outside. I lean back and sit on the chair and don't stare too much. I face this monitor, if she were a girl, she would have loved me dearly for always paying her too much attention, and I believe I haven't sat on mother's lap more than I did on this chair. I have been trying myself to refrain from over thinking, henceforth I look outside at times and get back on this chair and monitor. But at times, it is bound to happen, and there I am, lost in my thoughts. Perhaps, 'Thoughts and Works' brewed up with the very foundation of these sorts of thoughts, way back in college.

The Millennials of Bhutan

Who are Millennials? Well, this is the generation born between Generation X and Generation Z, often considered from early 1980s to mid 1990s. As of 2014's demographic data, Bhutan's median age happens to be 25.5 years, meaning Bhutan still consists majority of millennial generation population. So, it's the generation of my batch.

Murky Thoughts.

There comes a time, when all of us, are engulfed with doubts, like viruses consuming our sanctity of peace, we try to obliterate so many things and in all, the repercussions of our own thoughts lead to questioning ourself.

The median age of Bhutan is 25.5 as per NSB, which means we are a very young country. The thing is, employment causing a gruesome problem, our perspective towards any jobs have changed. We don't much like to apply for jobs, because we tend to think that pre-selected candidates are there. Albeit, many when unemployed don't research and develop oneself, it is bound to happen that our general lot becomes more confused. It's mid night, and you open your window, only to see dogs barking or kids fighting.

Google Earth And us

So, it's a weekend and I don't know, when was the last weekend I went out and had fun with friends. It seems, like ages ago. 

Anyway, let's discuss Google Earth and us, the Bhutanese. Google Earth is a virtual globe, map and geographical information program that was originally called EarthViewer 3D created by Keyhole, Inc, a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) funded company acquired by Google in 2004 (see In-Q-Tel). It maps the Earth by the superimposition of images obtained from satellite imagery, aerial photography and geographic information system (GIS) onto a 3D globe. ~ Shamelessly copied from Wikipedia.

Celebrating Life, Celebrating Friends: Episode X.

"Do you know her?" nervously I inquired about my crush. 
"Oh Yes! I slept with her"
That moment, I would have killed him thousand times over, but we were lads way back in high school. 

Oh, and that's the first time I had ever talked to Sonam Tenzin, aka Tsheku. Of course, he was lying about the whole saga, but that's him. Tsheku and I, we weren't best buddies during high school days. But when he had gone to CST, those were the days when we became good friends.

Good In Everybody: Introduction.

"Five years from now, how do you see yourself?" 

"Being Happy!" well that's what I always told. This line wasn't something that I had read on the INTERNET, because ten years ago, we didn't have much access to INTERNET.
