I am sad because I am still looking for a job and there are none here. The government of the day told us that the unemployment rate has come down to bare minimum. I do not understand. Why I do always have to be in this group – that bare minimum figure? It is sad when people like us who have no jobs are given numbers. They said that they are going to bring the figure down. I am optimistic that they will land us in a job that pays for our food. But for now I need to depend on my sisters for food and shelter. How long can I go on eating from them?
I am sure they can’t chase me out of their houses but they would wish they could inside their minds. At least the in-laws might get that kind of feelings to chase me out. Time is not now. They should chase me only when the unemployment rate in the country is reduced to zero, which some parties are promising. I will give three extra votes to that party who does that. Sadly, I have only one and I save that for the deserving one.
Right now I run from corner to corner. My attempt to continue my studies did not bring out any fruits and I gave up the hope completely. There is no point in burdening my already burdened sisters again. I am a Buddhist at heart and very much believe in the concept of compassion. If I do not feel compassionate to my sisters I can’t really be compassionate to others. Not even in million years. I am not sure if electing our leaders should be about compassion when they are less compassionate about our problems by reducing us to just minimal figures. I don’t understand how to be compassionate.
I am optimistic with some parties promising to give a powertiller each to all the gewogs in the country. That is some hope for us – the members of minimal figure group. Some of us might get employed as the drivers to those powertillers or some of us might even get the feeling of flying a helicopter back and forth. All these point out employment opportunities. Again it is conditional – they need to be voted first before they realize those promises.
Happiness is good, even the dogs have realized long time ago. We all need to have reasons to smile. Before we have those reasons we cannot really be happy. We need to get away from the group of minimal figure. That’s happiness for us those who exit from the group but there will always be some young people filling in our places.
So, when do we possibly have no unemployment in the country?
