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.
