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.

Punatshangchhu Diaries: Episode 2

I didn't know that I had gone to study in Brown Man's Ivy League college, in engineering sector, trust me I wasn't the prodigal kid nor was I some kid whom professors would remember. With a racial pun there, I apologize. Today, few of my friends from my class hold very significant posts in Nepal and India, screw those guys because they were the reason why my GPA got embedded in the shadows of their colourful grades: we were graded upon a topper's performance and I seriously don't get it, what Mr. Amit Sunal would eat and the amount of hours he slept to top and receive many gold medals - today he is posted as a Commissioner at this tender age, somewhere in India.

Life In Thimphu.

Now, few of my clients, family members and friends might be thinking that I have all the time in the world, to write and to practice calligraphy, and not much time for their works and time to spend with them. In actual, these aren't the things that actually takes time. I write without thinking much and it doesn't take me more than 5 minutes to copy stencils and fonts. I am not flaunting that I am skilled, it's just a means to escape from cacophony in my head. Never was I so stressed or overloaded in my life. These writings and little bit of relation to art, is what keeps me calm at times. Nevertheless, I always am worried about the works that I am involved in. Lately, I have been missing deadlines and I don't like these feelings.

Punatshangchhu Diaries - Episode I

Before all the hype about Hydro Power sectors, with media thinking that they have unveiled its dirty secrets like chasing a unicorn and way before Politicians thought that they were experts on Hydro Power Economics, Hydro Power Projects remained golden egg hatching duck, for a fresh graduate like me then.

True to Oneself.

It's morning and the mists are being swayed away by the rays of sun. What was once a chilly cold office is now being heated and the house flies pay their visits after the formal guests: mosquitoes!
