To be or not to be

I have served as a journalist ever since the start of my career back in 2007. Five years down the line, I have reached a cross road. The dilemma is: Should I still continue as a journalist when I know that it is my age to dream every dream there is and put in every ounce of energy that is in me to achieve the greatest? To work as much so that when my Read more »

Public transport not Pedestrian Day please!

Now and then it makes me wonder if this so-called Pedestrian Day can sustain some years. No doubt, everyone says so – and I will still say the same. The idea of having a day completely designated for pedestrians (like me) makes us all very proud of not owning a car to drive especially on Read more »

You have done it

Many of us are aware of the bar that is located on the ground floor of the building that houses Lugar Theatre in Thimphu. The place is always seen cramped with people – young and old alike. They serve beer and may be other drinks too. Other than that we also get some snacks and sweets but most popular of the items Read more »

My Bhutanese fear

It has become my habit to ask foreigners visiting Bhutan to tell me what they think about Bhutanese in general. And most of them have nothing but praises for Bhutanese people for their smile, friendship, compassion, etc. “Bhutanese people are by far the friendliest and helpful people on Read more »

The Angel of Death

In darkness of the night
I spied him in a tree
I sat frozen by the sight Read more »

Of marriage and old age

I dont know how many of us marry thinking of an old age benefit. What I have heard for so long from the people around is that they have married believing they will be looked after when their bodies retard. But I don’t know how true is this. I am neither an unmarried person nor a desperate Read more »

Lessons from a raven and a linnet

It’s a cold, dark, windy day today. The sky is over cast and the raindrops on my window pane makes me want to  snuggle back into bed. Instead, I get up and go into the kitchen and make myself a hot soothing cup of tea. As I sip my tea and cradle the mug in between my hands I walk back to my computer Read more »

Brogchung: Beautiful Beast

Brogchung is the name of an ox. There is nothing special about the name, but you would find the specialty of the beast called by the name only if you get to go close and spend some time with it. I have lived my life with cows, horses, dogs and cats. I used to be a cow herder in my school days during Read more »

Because You Loved Me

There were days when you said that I am the girl for you
There were cries of happiness that I found someone like you
You saw my strength when I was weak Read more »

Odds on the Odyssey

The jewel of earth are the spring blossoms,
Amid thousand varieties, the marigolds dazzles.
Yet, the beauty of marigolds, they bloom on hilly cliffs, Read more »

Murdering or making love – from blogs to books

Writing is a good form of expression. I like writing or typing anything that comes to my mind. Through writing I hit another person without injuring him and I make love without her consent or even restrain from it after her consent. I can murder him or even rape her and choose not to land up in a prison cell. Read more »

Red Obsession

The color red is one of women’s obsessions. Especially me, I die for random red stuffs I see here and there and everywhere. When I say random, I mean the clothes,bags, coats and beautiful Red heels. Everyone knows what Red stands for. Probably, all of you are starting to think about it. Here are some Read more »

Life is Beautiful

Life is beautiful and so we are. People say beauty lies in the eyes of beholder and what if that beholder is blind. Is it that he will not have the beauty of definition or darkness is his beauty. Beautiful souls will not necessarily have beautiful face and vice- versa. One cannot generalize that beautiful Read more »

Should PM be GNH Ambassador for Life?

“The Constitution of Kingdom of Bhutan Article 7, section 2. Fundamental rights, states that, “A Bhutanese citizen shall have the right to freedom of speech, opinion and expression.” Based on the valid state law of the kingdom of Bhutan, I would like to state about recent debate and argument of making PM as the GNH Read more »

Poverty: what can we do about it?

I grew up in a family where I was not deprived of any basic needs and I didn’t know what exactly poverty mean. I had access to everything I wanted somehow and at times I used to get it quite later which frustrated me alot. Today when I see and look at some corner of the world I see so many heads going empty Read more »
