Bhutanese in new era

Most youths today are so uncertain in their attitude toward their own lives. It is because they all are on the edge where one age merges into another. They cannot live on in the age their parents lived some two or three decades ago to which all the parents and their grand parents are accustomed to and at the same time they are not yet qualified for twenty—first century Read more »

The Fate

I wonder what life has for us. What fate awaits us nobody knows? Often loneliness is the best teacher. Those are the times when so many things strike our mind and we realize so much of things. How do I see myself after 5 or 10 years? I’ve never thought of it. I don’t suppose my life’s going to be the same as it is today. I definitely don’t see myself as the same Read more »

Taken for Granted – Making Security Our Responsibility

“The only time we ever think about breathing is when we have trouble doing it…” says Marty Klein, of Palo Alto, California.  There are some things we take for granted and never notice it till it is lost or endangered.  Security is one such thing, in the list of a Bhutanese.  It has been presented to us on a golden platter and we made it our right and never Read more »

Emergence of new Political Parties in Bhutan

I was going through the Bhutan Observer website and reading some news when I saw an online poll on the same site. It’s about the new political parties.

Grooming criminals

I am sure you all must have heard about the great ongoing debate in Bhutanese these days. Students are worried and their parents fear about the issue. Many sensible parents do while some hardly care.

Who needs help – tigers or farmers?

At a village in Trongsa, I forget the name of the village, a tiger had killed some cows last time. According to our newspapers, this is not the first time that is happening. They are right. Our farmers in the villages live at the compassion of wild animals. As Buddhist they cannot kill and killing is not the solution either. There are many wild Read more »

Here I welcome myself

“Why am I hiding myself?” I questioned as I took the tedious curve around the Thimpu Memorial Chorten this morning. Right, for sometimes I had lost the vigour to do any serious writing, except the regular official notesheets and letters that I am deemed by some virtue. No,  I won’t say I was too busy or lazy, rather I guess I didn’t like the fact that readers Read more »

What’s your opinion about marriage? It’s the universal fact that every being doesn’t always remain single. Marriage is considered an important part in every one’s life, a special moment for all who value love and believe in relationships.

“Ting-ting! Tang-tong!” empty LPG cylinders fall in line one after another near Motithang BOD. There were men, women and children in casuals guiding their cylinders through the line.
