Bhutanese Fans mourns the death of K-Pop Singer

Image
K-Pop and Korean lifestyles, who doesn't know in Bhutan. Korean lifestyle has a huge influence in our Bhutanese people, especially the youths. Music, dress, food, hairstyle, almost every bit of the youths' life in Bhutan is has so much similarity. Which even give the sense of Koreans' vibrant presence among us. 
If anybody takes a casual walk around Thimphu city, it's very obvious that Koreans alike Bhutanese youth are everywhere.  Talking of which the recent tragic death of K-Pop singer Jonghyun of Shinee at 27 brought so much sorrow and pains in the hearts of Bhutanese youth. 

They even took it to the street, an open space to mourn the death of an accomplished singer, songwriter and dancer, Jonghyun. 
In June this year, the first ever KPop concert at the Changlingmethang National Stadium also gathered large crowd, the highest gathering so far for a concert in Bhutan. In a concert, where the highlights were performance by world -renowned artist Park Jae-Sang, popular…

Bhutan has more jobs than job seekers?

"Bhutan has more job vacancies than the job seekers registered with the Labour Ministry."

-Prime Minister Dasho Tshering Tobgay


Now this is something to think and talk about. The very first thing that comes into our mind is 'job.' What kind of thing or work is called 'job?' And the next instant people think like 'are the youths laying back, not registering with MoLHR? 
But an unemployed youth will always take a bigger consideration for the job, whether registered or not, because in one or the other the small population of our country is all connected  and all come to know about the jobs available in the market. Because it isn't really necessary if one is registered with the MoLHR or not. Or is anybody trying to defend the position here? 
Considering the ratio of the jobs available and the job seekers do we really have more jobs? Are we considering the kind of jobs available and the qualification of the job seekers. 
While it's true that Bhutan has jobs…

Dear Life

Image
With all the sorrows and sadness over the kind of life I have, these free verses flows out ....

I can’t finish thinking of how beautiful you are! Dear life, with you, everything is heaven And every moment a blessing, such joy How blessed I feel that you are every breath I take
You’ve me and I’m happy for this I can afford it, something which is above godly  And precious, and because I’m a chosen one, I have all the joy. Nothing as beautiful as you, O life
But how sad that you found a poor me And rested upon who couldn’t have afforded it But because you don’t differentiate, I am happy For this makes me a fortunate one, though small
You were rude at first, when I was tender I grew up a man cub without proper clothes on And I hated you for all you were with me But then, you were still that beautiful life
You put me through tests, of which I failed so many But taught me how different I can be with failures Because nothing can be beautiful without fall And that, is the biggest lesson you have for all
Do you …

GIRL ON FIRE

Image
WHY? 
Why on the earth she had to be set on fire? What kind of crime and sin deserves such a treatment? What could have provoked the man, the Ex, to set her on fire? 

These are some of the questions that triggers in people's mind when they heard the sad news of the 'Woman who was set on fire' by his ex-husband. The bitter pain is in imagining the excruciating pain from the burn. It's heart wrecking. Whoever has been on the scene must have felt the cold stab in their heart to see a woman running in flames. The most horrible of the scenes a mankind would ever watch! 

What kind of monsters is he? The man who was nobody for her, for it was already a month since they separated had to be his Death. The strength of the issue might have been so serious that it triggered the man to burn his ex alive. Or was it not the issue and his uncontrolled mind that went haywire? Or did he intend to by any means burn her alive because the coronation park doesn't have kerosene outlet and t…

Pay Revision - a nightmare call for the rest

Image
Since the institution of Democracy in 2008 in Bhutan, we have had many chances to witness lots of interesting changes. While some were for the good and betterment of our country and countrymen, some were, as we can't expect everything to be so perfect, pretty unsatisfactory. Things come and pass, but some seem to have unending ripples in people's life. And the daily basic happenings are the foremost thing that people consider, like inflation, salary and generally the common and most important things that affect us. Salary, as bluntly as I can say, is the first thing for most of us and is an undeniable fact.  The recent pay hike of 40% for all the local government leaders, excepting Thrompons proposed by the government is something to think about. Now another blunt statement from a commoner like me is, this is a 'HUGE'  proportion. It's almost half of their monthly share.  Because I say this on many grounds. I ain't any economist or budget professional, but wha…

When I am that Lone Wolf

Image
Sometimes, I feel every single moment when some situation slowly transforms me into the loner in the thick abundance of acquaintances. More than the family, the workplace is the most suitable place that turns me into a Lone Wolf. The feeling becomes so intense that so suddenly I feel that energy of Alpha male...hahaha. 

How funny is that?

Now the situations vary- from duties to responsibilities, opinions to suggestions, and lot more. The very source that really turns somebody to a lone wolf is unending. But whatever is the case, most tend to forget that it's not just for a personal gain. The capacity to digest less of what is being talked and discussed is the core concern.  And a lot of aftershocks follow the deep concern that really keeps disturbing us and that we are trying to uncover. hatred, side looks, making it personal and worse than these at times. 
But I have this feeling that unless I am standing for my personal cause, I don't really care and doesn't really both…

The Last Snow Fall

Image
The last snow fall, I don’t remember when it was Might be around last December, when we rejoiced I see rain and cold still lingers, but no snow fall The ground is wet, yet it’s just the hard rock and soil
The last snow fall, I don’t remember when it was For now, the season has come and the sky still clear I look up every moment, there isn’t sign of one Peeping out of the window every morning is a disgrace
The last snow fall, I don’t remember when it was Buds from the trees are sprouting, and seeds germinating Chirps of the birds have reigned the sky, and the crickets too But even a crystal of snow didn’t touch my feet
If not today, frail drops shall shower on me tomorrow And I shall find the joy I lost for a moment time But how in this warming soil will it see a landing place No, I am living in the phantom of dreams
If not tomorrow, whence will I get the snowfall? The thing so dear to me and one I dreamt so long I long to muddle with the soft end of your touch And shall my cheeks be painted red in white

The Garden of Eden

Out of pure curiosity why men are attracted to breast like no other. My apologies to any offended reader!
Hark hither! Who resembles the Goddess of Thames Do you not hear my call, so loud and clear? Or thy ears pinned to the softer melody far Show me now, thou haveth one that I admire
Unravel the pair of supple hill on thy chest For I urge to behold them with ecstasy Shoot me if you will, but I wait for thee to unfurl O I plead, don’t undo me and obey my request
The Garden of Eden, the ocean of pleasure it is My eyes shall be full with admiration and sensual blessings And the touch, it shall lead me to heaven's excitement And I shall remember you for eons of time
That a lump of flesh, but with such a shape and supple I am surprised how it is the wonder to the eyes of men But the pleasure is such of an unimaginable taste As that of the wild honey for the dear tongue

Beacon of Tomorrow

 .... to our Prince on His 1st Birth Anniversary....

As though the sun has risen from afar My home glitters with the rays of hope Our wings, rested on the colorful joy The beacon of legend has risen over horizon
Such greatness of the Name, has been long called The ripples still afloat the hearts of all Whilst the joy peek through the trunk of ecstasy I, a humble servant, greets Thee with all the love
May I call Thee, the promise of tomorrow? The hope, we cling close to our tender hearts Such a name, even the Thames can’t afford to make Let me sail, and rejoice through the vales of joy
Oh! The great one, who hath for us all come Thou greet us with smile, such of a priceless It gives us pleasant ride, through the meadows of love I garland Thee with all the love and prayers
I see now, the vales have turned themselves up to Thee And so the Rivers, the brooks, and the streams Hum the name of a Legend, who has adorned my home The Nile, as holy as it is, has taken thy name in its song Dear Lord, the one of unfat…
