who waits for me

He is two years now. What I am surprised about is, at this age he does not leave me alone and he does not want to be alone even at any instant of time. In the morning when I am off to my duty he is left crying because he wants to go along with me. During lunch time he will be eagerly waiting and looking through the window. When he just see me appearing just below the road, with delightful face he starts calling APA………….APA……… I get inspired seeing him. He is the source of inspiration for me and above all he is everything for me. But as I reach home, he will be standing right at the door with smiling face. He waits stills I unclothes myself but  then again he starts calling me Apa….Apa………about to be crying. Such cases were repeated many a times during lunch and after school. What is the reason behind? All his inspiration and smiley face shown has only one reason, that’s he want me to bring something to eat.

After school when I reach home, my baby boy wants to go for ride. He is much interested in moving out of home. Is it that I am keeping him always inside or am I outing him most?  At this age outing is everything for him.  To be continued…………………..

The Relics at Thimphu

I started my journey at around 4:00 AM on Sunday 20/10/2013 towards Thimphu, to get blessing from the sacred relics thinking that it would clean all my accumulated sins. I rushed, as I could speed up and finally arrived at RAPA around 6:30 AM. I joined the snaky line near the gate towards Tashichhodzong where the starting point of line was right at RAPA hall. It was chilled and cold but the line did not moved even an inch. 
Vehicles were speeding without any concern where most of the kids were crossing the road as they played with friends I was bit scared and I took care of my kids. Parents were lining up dying to receive blessing and vehicles were speedy dying to make money as they consider as their season. However some kids were left unattended. All were busy but found no security, no police, no nppf and no desuups. The security has failed their duty as the organizer has disorganized everything because public has waited as early as 3:00 AM but organizer and team seems be cool letting the public to wait in the cold for 6 hours. Within this time span an accident occurred where a boy lost one of his leg when a bolero car ran over it and thank god that time a traffic police came there and the public with frustration call on them the role of security. Still I waited with passion however I could not control my passion when I saw many a time people who arrive after me landed in the central line before me because they have a relative there even than I have no right to fight them individually because I went there with a good reason. 
These all happened due to lack of security. When it was 9:00 AM may be the team and organizer came to disclose the relics to the public that’s also with limited number of security. They were unable bring rushing public under control and see now the organizer who just came got frustrated for a second and stop the disclosing of the relics to the public. Organizer, you are so powerful because frustration for a second equalizes the frustration of public for more than six hours. Thank you organizer due to your failure public returned disappointed back home may all the ill feelings of the public accumulate in you.
 More over I am a teacher I will not get such opportunity because Sunday was only the day for me. I have to build my nation and I cannot spare separate time to received blessing from your relics keeping my student unattended. I am also bit concern about the media BBS, the news that you broadcast seems to have information as public failure and you did not show how public have suffered in the cold and heat. More media in Bhutan has to be encouraged because when media is monopoly there seems to be ignoring other side of the coin. I have decided not to be disclosed to the secret relics as it is as good as not receiving blessing because you see the ill feeling developed as mentioned as above.

However I am a Buddhist I cannot avoid receiving blessing from such a holy relics. Now I am blessed. The relics on the way to trashigang at Rabuna Wangdue, I have received chawang from the relics. Thank god I am satisfied.  

Ap Jai sa koi nahin

"A month back my kid was busy practicing a hindi dance for the annual school cultural concert.The first ever stage performance done by class PP-A of Tencholing Primary School including my 6 years daughter Kezang Chuki with an old hindi song Ap jai sa koi nahin. Everyone entered into the hall and cheered for the first show lead by the chair person. I and many parents eagerly waited for the second show (ap jai sa koi nahin) because those kids were presenting their show for the first time in their life after enrolling them in the school. Everyone in hall screamed out with an excitement when their kids appeared on the stage in disguised with make up in red skirt and white color shirt. I was having difficult time to identify my daughter and later  thank god she was dancing right in the front line. Thank madam Tshomo (class teacher of PP A) and her group for grooming my kid. You have open her eyes to see the world. 
I know its very difficult to control and teach small kids like mine. Some people think teaching is the duty of teacher which i never believe also i don't accept.  Teaching is a profession where all other profession are being taught. I don't want to focus on rather than to thank all teachers teaching class PP, I just want to say keep teaching because you know and keep going since you can. Unfortunately I am sorry I could not let my child to make the second show due to emergency (personal problem) has to go to Thimphu, although my kid is much more interested in the show".

Think as you act

Checking validity of vehicle and whether driving with license or not is some what okay but implementing traffic rule in Bajo is beyond acception. I am worried seeing the road condition,street light, round about etc nothing is well maintained. Before implementing and dressing the rules mind it everything should be on track. Nu.1750/- does not matter but implementation of rules and regulation matters here. There is a process like first or second warning, instead of imposing fines on the spot  If you are human being at least mercy on them, you act as if you superior to any one. Think it over how you survive with your monthly salary when you impose fines on other of course is rule but there is exception.

Other side

I as a teacher, i am worried about them, parents are worried about them and the government is worried about them but student as an individual they do not worry about themselves. I  always tell my student that 'when somebody start worrying about you, why don't you worry for yourself'. Things are happening just opposite these days with students. When things are to be done they don't do it and those things which are prohibited seems to be out breaking. Are the students concern for themselves?, They simply walk to and fro within home and school and are the parents concern about their kids? maybe few but remember simply enrolling the child in the school will not enhance the total growth of your child. Teachers are trying their best however many children are seen and notified without the control of the parents.
In olden days children wanted to go to school but parents did not allow them as they were wanted to keep them to support their family in doing household chores however now the scene has changed parents send their children in the school but student they don't study seriously. Intentionally children pears holes at different parts of jeans and wears shorts although there are good and cheering clothes available. Our forefathers they used to wear shorts made out of leaves and animal's skin due to unavailability. Today's children learns negative views faster than positive altitude indeed they have inborn talent to know negative altitude. They intent to derive fruits, name and fame without hard work. 



Failure

"Results were decleared but few student came and reported saying they did not see the expected candidate..........and there were few ups and downs....... election coordinator is trying to solve the problems" the serial number on the EVM and in the list were seen not matching where the votes of few candidates were declared in the name of other candidates. There were 16 girls nomination which were not fitted in one voting machine and two were on the other side i mean separate machine where most of the students left unseen. one was my nominee 'Wangmo' she has the quality of being one of the captain but she was unable to make it through. This is one failure in the part of the election coordinator in the school. you could have nominated that could be fitted in one voting machine.
