Life as we live(my thoughts)

Some of the most exciting moments of life are yet to come for many of us. Everyday is a big surprise and we live in between the swings of real life which is never same even for a bit . Living the most satisfied life is what all of us yearn for. The fact that people are of various stature can wholly be the result of their luck, hardwork, careful planning and fate. We lead our life in the mercy of fate, but I do feel that our fate is something that results out of our action and thus in our hands.

Actions and decisions do influence our life style. Gratified life is what we dream of and that can be seen through the smiles and happiness in ones mind. People travail hard and sweat while undertaking any endeavor. In this way, we can’t just consider the comfy life of people be due to their fate, luck or accident. If we take time to know in depth about the most successful man, we may have to have enough time to listen to his failure stories and darkest period of his life which can be so intriguing, but inspiring as well.

Money is not everything is proved wrong these days. In today’s world, money has become everything. Face gleams when our bank account and wallet is loaded. If it wasn't for money or its need in daily life, people wouldn't have become that dynamic and greedy as well. Nothing comes in an easy way, the bumps in the journey of our life is something we must consider as the routine. The good outcome gives us satisfaction and happiness for the efforts that we put.

The quest for peace is taken up only by few who realizes the established facts of impermanence of life. Rest are all kept captive by the worldly matters from which quite a few make out of the snarl. In between, some gets derailed out of the path ,confused and entwined by the perplexity. People may be differentiated by their qualification, status, wealth and many more, but mustn't forget the grave we all share together. Rich are equally preponderated by mental stress, fear and anxieties.

On contrary, homeless straying in streets won’t be cared or eyed by anyone. If we take time and listen to them, we may get amazed to see him leading the most contented life. At the end, happiness is all we desire throughout and those with happy heart can be aptly called as the heroes for learning how to smile even in worst times. At the end of the day, we should learn to take in what is best for us and have affirmative mindset for the better tomorrow. Life is more than the pursuance of reputation and the good deeds that we derive from our act will be the source of happiness.

Last Night's Dream

Last night, I had a dream. Normally, my dreams will be vague and not that clear. I let it go as people say it could be due to the unfulfilled desire embedded deep within our subconscious mind. It was a distinctive one and I could wholly retrieve it in the morning. It sure had a clarity in it and surprised me as it is the first of a kind happening with me. That excited me to jot it down and keep it in my dairy which I can reread later. 

Two people were brawling and their heated up argument disordered my sound sleep. They were pointing fingers to each other and were desperately trying to find a fault in other. What might have run down my mind to dream of something that wasn’t at all relevant to my days activities. At times, we dream exactly about the incident that occurred during day time. This was utterly a useless dream which kept me in half sleep. 

Among the two, one face was familiar to me. The two were trying to prove each other wrong and I struggled in my sleep to keep them cool. The situation compelled me to involve, but with an intention to resolve it peacefully. I boldly intervened and politely took my time to listen to their say. I haven’t seen anyone not capable of sin in my life, so I explained them about the imperfectness. 

As I listened to them, I came to know that they share the same apartment in Thimphu as the rent is achingly high. It so happened that the man whom I found the face familiar mopped the floor using a shirt which happened to be the shirt of his house mate. The other person was frustrated with what his house mate has done. The incident has made him go red and has approached him to come up with a reason for doing so. 

He was furious to find his shirt used as a mop. It may be of inferior quality, but using as a mop is totally an insane act unless the culprit is blind and brainless was his emphatic talk infront of me. He agreed to have approached to the guy with violent anger which triggered and infuriated the moper. Moper totally disagreed and complained about the ego the other person is carrying. 

The shirt owner readily agreed to accusation and harshly asked the moper to wash his shirt. I was in between them, acting vigilant and concerned. My presence there was worth of it as I could atleast stop them brawling like in the beginning. I expected the moper to wash it and return to the owner, but it was utterly surprising to hear a big No from him. He stressed the ego word again to which other person had more to say if he things he is ego free guy. 

The deeply agitated person says that if it was not the ego of moper, he wouldn’t have experienced a night in the detention center which he won’t forget throughout his life. Seems like they both experienced a night in the police station after the moper had a dispute with their neighbor. The other one was taken as a witness, but had to halt a night in a pathetic and malodorous room in the station. He was the one to use the shirt and come with vehement denial of washing the shirt. Someone who does the wrong and commits mistakes infront of others, but never accepts his wrong doings.  

That was very much confusing as a mediator. I was relieved that my friend woke me up at the right time by banging my door as it was already lunchtime. I am still confused whether to say the moper or the other as the egoistic person. I still lack the sound judgement. The fact that shirt owner accepted himself as the most egoistic person could be his purposeful way of ending their dispute which I believe is a fair decision. Just wondering what could have been their reaction if the whole story was in other way.

Day's Chronicle.

12th august
 My cellphone beeped and alarmed to disturb my pleasant morning sleep. I just hated the distraction and the whole idea of waking up early,  but was left with no option than to wake up and  freshen up myself. I had a mind to pull the blanket over and sleep some more time, but had to reluctantly avert. It was 6am and I was awake  early right at the dawn break when others elsewhere were still in their dreams. Everyday, as soon as I am out of the bed, it takes me another 10-15 minutes to get rid of my remaining sleep. I see myself in the balcony of my apartment staring into the unceasing plains. That was during the regular weekdays, when college timing was at 9am. For sure, I was early today by two and half hours.  

Surprised, people around my vicinity were already at work and this made me realize how lazy I was to say that it was too early. Of all, I liked the pleasant morning breeze which kinda gave me a nostalgic vibe of my stays at home. A vegetable vendor was right infornt of my door with fresh vegetables and daily newspapers was already kept near the door. As I opened the door, I could see the man going to the other apartements with bunch of newspaper on the back of his bi-cycle. Most of the farmers were already into the fields, some ploughing and others spraying pesticides in the field. Perhaps, they might have started so early so as to wrap it up as early as possible and  stay away from the sizzling spell of midday heat.

I recently shifted to the outskirts of main Vijayawada city as the place is just a walking distance from my college. Life here, is totally different from ours. I see, people more busier than us. They  have the mind to work even for a single penny whereas we bhutanese never care and value a coin. I now feel the pinch when I have to walk 50m from my apartment to buy water cans for drinking purpose. The ordinary tape water doesn't seem potable with weird taste. I have seen people active until mid-night, but never thought they will be the same early morning too. Irrespective of timing, we are sure to get anything if we go out to a restuarant or a roadside dhaba. 100 bucks can fully serve and make 5-6 people happy. 

Touring whole India is not a problem anymore for me which I did in many occasions with my collge mates. We take risk by going without any tickets in the general class. The best part of it is we take risk and that's the greatest enjoyment.  Restuarants are plenty along the highway 24*7 with steaming indian foods ready to be served. Ofcourse, surrounding looks little messy with litters all around. They may be deligent to keep it clean, but it is something unquestionable considering the population. The altitude near my place reads 23m above sea level which makes the atmosphere very humid and suffocating. However, with my acceptance to the place , I take it as the place worth living as I am pursuing my studies for my own sake. 

It isn't uncommon to see people defecating in the open air  along side the road. At times, the scene is just too yucky to see people all over replying nature's call and I am with no words to manifest it descriptively. If we are to firmly believe our mythology, everyday will be a bad day as such scenes are common and bound to be seen if you are out of the room. I don't mean to be contemptuous by saying all this since it is thier way of life. One can either turn away by not deviating into sideways from your path or get to see the worst scene of the day right in the morning. I don't consider it as a badluck or anything, but the scene nearly puked me several times.

Divine Heaven(Village or City)

The inner instinct makes us optimistic, but being realistic helps us to understand more about life. City life, usually considered as a social life is often misconstrued as the real life. In real, it has no depth in it to be rated as real life. The best part of village is that folks are all related to one another in many ways and enjoys a life worth to be called as the supernal life. Anything like mishaps, everybody will be well informed and help comes in within no time.

It is utterly unjustifiable to point out the less than normal progess in nooks and corners of our country as the main reason for the total migration of people into urban areas. Rural life, where people usually spent their entire life in the field is what I like the most. Ofcourse it is tedious, but we lead a life free of tension. At the end of the day, people draws out the satisfaction of the day. The quest and burning desire for a better life by leaving the grins and beautiful place deserted is the greatest mistake people usually do in the mordern world. 

Back in villages, everyone's place is just like your home. Being nurtured in a small village of Tashigang, I am confident enough to say it so. You have to fear about nothing and there is no risk in going out late. People in cities are more into mental pressure because of the challenging and expensive living standards. Not all are destined  to lead a city life and those who mistakes cities as their home are the ones who lead a pathetic life. There will be no cases of robbery, gang fights, vandalism, drug abuse etc if they were little wise enough to take a prudent decision. 

How is city life better than rural life? Everytime we go out late night, we fear of notorious people in every corners of the cities and some are already the victims of their thwarted urban life. The peaceful night, which is everybody's night and needs to be respected is never taken care by the late night nuisance. As for the rural life, I find it peaceful with no disturbances or noise pollutions. Ofcourse, to live the reality of it isn't an easy task with tedious labour year round. Whatsoever, happiness kicks in when we accomplish our work which gives a sense of great jubilation. To take the outcome of hard physical labour and the jubilation both in one stride is the real taste of rural life. 

I cannot be bias and prevent the objective considerations and brighter part of life in the cities. The changing time unfolds the economy as a whole and people do prefer living in the cities. Migration has led to various consequences such as labour shortage in rural areas and soaring up the unemployment rate in urban areas. City life, assumed to be a comfortable life has showered a harsh reality to many migrants which they find it hard to endure and survive. There is no steady state of growth or stature maintined with some sections of people swimwing in wealth while others are drowned in poverty which is the woeful plight seen in reality.

Random Post

Boys never say No to anything. Is this true in reality? I'm little bit flummoxed as to how I should express myself. For all these year, I have been affirmative and bit stringent in replying and dealing with the situation. At times, I say Yes! deliberately, knowing the truth behind the whole story. While with my friends and acquaintances, I might have been rowdier than any other guy. There are classes of guys whom people especially girls needs to know in depth. 

Some guys are so harsh with their mates, but surprisingly , they tend to be the most modest and decent gentleman infront of girls. Some go wiser with age, but I have come across lots of people who are considerably increasing the infidelity rate nowadays. No point to blame them, God gifted everyone with the super power to live and work on their own. It is shame on their part to  fool someone of their race. 

People get hurt and so do I. In fact, the sentimentality within me makes me to go to the furthest point where my emotion goes out of my control. Tears roll out of my eyes which describes mixed feelings of my life. At times, the dejected heart forces me to fuddle up whole night with consequent fever and hangover. The worst of all, we get severely injured just because we are too much into negative traits. Life is not fair, but I must say life is same for everyone, we get the same hangover even if we drink out of enjoyment. 

Friends are so adamant in their objection to say yes with us, but they are ever ready to change their mind for girls. In many ways, girls are like pearls. Some people misuse it with wrong intent. It is heartbreaking to read  girls being physically molested by taking advantage of their innocence and this hunts me for days. When I say, Men will be Men, there are good ways of proving the true potential within us.Good intentions are not enough in the real world. All we have to do is be practical and adhere to the basic norms of life.

The descent of humanity has created a fear among  people. Trust has faded within the people and they are severely questioned by the injustice and the ragging human mind. Human minds are susceptible to criticism , persuasion and more to temptations. Some are disadvantageously sidelined considering their inferiority. The distance from head to toe may vary literally in real. The earth would have been a better place if the state of extreme confusion and disorder was not at all in the people's mind.

Kid, He is just a kid.

At this point of my life, I wish I could remember the detailed incidents right from being a toddler. As an adult, I go speechless to see my young nephews  and nieces always right in their own way. Spending time with the young ones has undeniably become  my favorite pass time. Kids are so fun to mingle with. Their action and deeds are worth enough to keep you engaged. Their presence in the room is more than having folks around at the time when one need them so desperately. 

There is no doubt of being unsure of what they are and how they feel of themselves. Kids are smarter than us and their unexpected acts greatly surprising and astonishing. Each passing day is a new experience to them where they tend to grab and explore every little things that they come across. The hue and cry of kids at home abuzz the whole room which is provoking, but we realize the liveliness of having children at home only in their absence. 

Baby sitting is an arduous task especially for boys and the work gets more tougher if the little ones are too naughty and hyperactive. During my summer vacation, I had a good time with my little nephew who recently celebrated his second birthday. He never bothered who is there to look after him if he is served well and on time. The most positive and appreciative qualities of all is that he is very well disciplined for toilet. At times, he looked tired and bored. Locked in the room  up for the whole day, I once took him for a walk idly. I could never think of taking him again as he used to come to my bed at odd hours and ask me for a late night walk.

I observed him little hesitant in the beginning to be with me, but with time he proved very aggressive. Kids always think that they are impeccable and wants the things as they wished which is sometimes very much irritating. During the first few days, he was fine watching the local Etho Meto channel and Bhutanese songs. I don't know what sidetracked his mind. He switched to a famous Chota Bheem Series. For him, it is like the series will be aired 24*7, letting me to put on the TV as an when he wished.

I tried explaining him that his favourite Bheem series will be on TV at its scheduled timing and he always turned a deaf ear. In return,  uttering a sudden loud cry on top of his voice saying "Aku Bheem Tensh". I had to download the whole series of Chota Bheem and let him watch whole day. That eased my work, he never moved an inch when  his favorite cartoon series is on. Over a few weeks time, we became so close and at several points, he used to come to me, hug and get back to his place. He is so fond of the series but I expect him doing different things during my next visit.

Broad Day Robbery

Thieves nowadays are getting bolder and more confident. They have become invulnerable to fear and heightened their audacity to sneak into the apartments even during day time. People remind me to be careful while being away from home. As a sojourner in their soil, they esteem us as a filthy millionaire and try in every possible ways to loot our pocket money which is just enough for our living. Do we need to do the same when they come to our place? Absolutely not, we're taught to be humble and hospitable to our guest. 

Those who stays in India might have known the real character of the locals. They think lame, act weird and above all they are selfish and cunning. They never keep their words leaving us in an unease condition. Of all they taught us not to trust them for whatever reason it may be. My apartment is housing people from different countries who are enrolled in different nearby colleges. Management tries to come up with their own set of rules and regulations for foreigners to which we never abide by. Rules has to be uniform for everyone, and the separate rule for outsiders  are just too harsh for us to take in.

Laborers on other hand eye to get into our room during broad day light when we are away for college. We didn't know their intentions until we lost our valuable belongings. The same person has sneaked into our room for couple of times and we came to know about it after days. One of my room mates' Micromax phone went missing for three to four days. There was nothing like force entry from the door or window , so who would think about the burglars when his phone wasn't there in his room. I tried to ring his number which said switched off and we're calm  as we thought it was misplaced somewhere in our room only. 

Days passed by without seeing his mobile and we were so confident that it will be somewhere in our room. Unaware of the robbery being seriously eagle eyed on foreigners, we used to leave early for college and return late in the evening. Days later, one of the lockers in my friend's room was break opened and his mobile was missing too. The other friend who misplaced his mobile few days back rushed to his room and got his hand to his wallet only to see it empty. I too kept few hundreds under my text books which wasn't there.

That just solved the mystery of the missing Micromax phone. We then realized that the phone was stolen, not misplaced and stayed starring at each other. Out of four mobile phones in our room, the bloody burglar took two smart phones, leaving my simple Nokia and friend's Samsung phone. He proved to be the dumbest thief leaving $200 from friends purse and taking Indian notes. Our laptops were spared as labourers are being thoroughly checked while going out of the gate by the security guards. As expected, management was so silent though we informed about the incident right away. Later, I saw the security personnel scanning people going out from the gate which was too late as the thief might have gone out of the compound way before.

The same day, they also managed to get into one of our friend's apartment and took a cheque of Rs.20000 which she got from the indian embassy. Actually, she promised us that she would throw a hefty party to all our friends and we were all excited over her plan. That remained as a plan as housebreaker snatched away her cheque. The day wasn't ours as we Bhutanese lost mobiles and cash worth 40,000/-.  We felt the pain and got gravely disturbed but consoled ourselves by saying that it is another way of effacing our ill luck and unforeseen troubles.

Hectic Fool's month

The next 30 days are assured to be a very hectic. Everything has to be managed systematically, make up my mind and be determined. April month, which is regarded as the fools month is never going to let me feel like a one. I have to be active, toil hard and get ready for my upcoming 6 semester exams. Matter won't wrap up with this. I have to cut short my sleeping time and accustom the habit of sleeping after AM and waking up as early as possible. 

At this time of the year, people are supposed to be in the state of merriment with uttermost peace with natural scenic beauty at its best. It is a time to rejoice the freshness and fragrance of the mother nature with its scenic beauty and plants blossoming. Here, I would rather consider April month as a sizzling summer day with scanty rain and scorching heat of broad day sunlight.

To welcome it as perfect spring month is out of question with temperature soaring high up to 38 degrees which is quite early.  The hot air entering the room can make anyone go fatigue with high humidity making the stay intolerable. Ceiling fan proving futile even at its highest rotation. People are left drenched in their own sweat and force to drink buckets of water to avoid dehydration. Most importantly, I have to be extremely careful and stay away from the skin rashes which is common in hot places.

I have seen my friends working in banks busy during their year closing. The situation out here with me is no different. Semester closing is right at my doorstep and got no time to toss my pillow like previous months. The days gonna be long and a tiring one. Submission of assignments, lab records, internal exams and project review are queued up to put me in action. I wished I was free in this month, nevertheless could not help being away from all these works.

April month will put me in terrible mental, but it is an appropriate time to burn down my calories. The fact that I will be back at home by first week of next month is boosting my morale and driving me to enthusiastically put efforts. The sunny days are awaiting for me and this is the consoling aspects of the current difficult situation. Friends are waiting for me to play football and booze together. Ah! can't wait any longer,   and let May come, delectable days are waiting to thrill me though April gonna employ me without any remuneration.

Eyeshot on Blogging.

Bloggers in Bhutan can be anyone and I am one among them as we are bestowed with the freedom to express everything within us. Moreover, blog is a platform for us to express our feelings and keep up our writing habit. Not everyone around us are so familiar with blogging. I am also new to this and got little ideas on how to blog and all. 

Those who never owned a blog but with a faint idea have more to say about blogging and its purpose. I was in a gathering with my college mates yesterday. Few seniors just returned from a semester long practice school in Bhutan with few bottles of our local brews and I was there to fuddle up on their invitation. 

I don't know how it became a matter of discussion. Everybody was talking about blogging. Few own it whereas some aren't aware of it. I never share about my blog with my friends here as I know they will just insult or complement on it. Only one of my friends knows about my genuine interest in blogging and he shared about this to others. 

Another friend had his own opinion about blog. He questioned me whether I have anything posted in my blog which was something like a research work or anything inquisitive worth enough for other people to read as a reference. My answer was a straight NO and he was so sure that we are nowhere as a blogger which he tried to generalize it owing to my presence there.  

I was mum to hear about blogging from him who was never in the position to take our point of view.  I saw him unshakable with his justification on top of his voice. I had to tell him that this is the first time ever to know about the real purpose of the blog. If what he said is true, I am sorry to say that I have been misusing it for three years by posting useless articles.

 I tried to share my own knowledge about blog to him but was not in a position to take it. People have their own justification for everything and I have that habit to support and accept it as a courteous gesture. I don't know whether I am true with my faint knowledge about blog.  

All long, I considered blog as an online journal where we can post our write ups be it anything. I am a keen follower of Bhutanese blogs and blogging for me is like an open diary where we can keep an account of our daily experiences, incidences and a site where we can read and post personal feelings. 

His comments on blogging put me in a bewildering state with a vague hesitant feeling of whether I am doing right by posting everything popping out from within and making it public. It was something like a contemptuous assertion to bloggers especially for an amateur like me. There was nothing serious to mark his words for it was his cognitive thinking which was an absolute laymen's view.

Influence Of Technology In Modern Day Love Story.

I ain't here to bother someone in my apartment who keep his facebook and other pages on with torrent downloading upto 300kpbs. Anything bountiful around us makes us to care less about it mooting the fact that it faintly pinches us. So I keep my laptop power on 24 hours without shutting it down, I ain't the only one doing this. All my friends are just like me making and utilizing it profitably. It is a perfect substitute for everything especially when you are away from home with nothing engaging around. We get to stay close with friends and near ones every day. 

If anyone finds me online even at odd hours, they are misconstrued to see me active. Some curiously writes, "who keeps you awake at this hour". A habit is firmly grounded whereby it has become a routine to clear their doubts. The story starts right from the root where by I insinuate myself in the topic and inform them about reasonable and unlimited internet facility. Though we get to learn new ideas, stay updated with the world wide news, read various articles, follow blogs, watch videos etc, I feel like it is a sheer waste of time because we never know how time passes once we are infront of our laptop.

In a place like India where you never find any other scope for spending quality time during the leisure time, internet play the better role as a companion. We can chit-chat with friends, watch movies and many more. Everything has changed with time, I don't think lads nowadays are having the charm of writing letters to their loved ones like we used to do in our schooling days. Perhaps, they may not have any idea how their elders approached and proposed each other. With the introduction of mobiles and social networking sites, flirting has become popular among people.

Back then, proposing a girl wasn't a easy task, I used to get a goose bump all over my body the moment I thought of undertaking the mission. The proposal required enomous boldness. Those who could speak well and had eloquent tongue were lucky enough to get into relationships. I vividly remember writing lots of love letters for my friends in high school. They used to sneak into my room after the light off without the notice of Councillor and come up with a special petition. I wrote dozens of love letters under the candle light  for my friends and it became like a regular assignment for me.

Juxtaposing the two completely contrasting styles, we realize how technology has taken its role in our life. We just ring the person on the other end or write in social networking site or video chat to express our love and affection. Even with these facilities readily available around me, I never feel comfortable to set myself for the greatest mission. Those who are talented in talking can fully utilize it in video chatting and call, while others can either impress through text or by writing in words. In my case, hair still tingles around my neck to implement and adopt the new strategies which I feel is still out of my comprehension.

Along with technological prgoression, many unwanted stuffs are coming into existence. Violence and marital problems are becoming prominent which I believe is the potent effect of technology. Marital problems has tremendously escalated over the years and infidelity on the rise. It wasn't as easy as it is right now to get into a relationship. Most of the modern love stories have the touch of social networking sites and telecommunication. Two strangers can easily fall in love and make it public by updating their status the very next day. Well, I ain't to trying to act reasonable with my opinion for it is just a display of my lame thought.

To be frank, I may find myself in the most awkward situation to narrate my first meeting with the better half (wish I had one :P) to my kids in time to come if they happen to ask by chance. It will be a weirdest narration to start with "Hmm....I added her in facebook, started chatting and so on" which is the common love story prevailing nowadays. Even then, I firmly believe that the better fate has the vital role to play though social networking site has it own part in modern day love story.

Answer For Liebster Award

Who wouldn't be ecstatic with joy when nominated for the Liebster award. It totally flabbergasted me  to see my name being highlighted as a nominee. I sincerely would like to thank for nominating me and making me exult with a victorious feeling. It was a kind of a moral boosting support to have someone taking time to read my blog. 

Here are my answers.

1. Anything funny related to your blog?
   -I try to incorporate everything that strike my mind. As such, there is nothing funny or anything like exhilarating secret related to my blog. Habituated to an indiscriminate penning style which is something related to a amateurish stint, my blog is a journal resulting from the cognitive process and emotive feelings. I keep an account of the incidences that I experience everyday. It is a notebook which I can refer for retrospection in years yet to come.There is nothing like showy misrepresentation intended to conceal anything within and it is a complete narration of my random thoughts and daily experiences. 

2. Would you like living forever?Why?
    -I don't think I would love to live forever. This whole concept of life would change if someone was to live forever. Just like plants wither, we are deemed to grow old. Immortality with aging would be the sorriest gift of God to us. 

3. Note few descriptions about you by others that you don't believe in and why?
    -People to whom I am not that acquainted see me serious. In no way, I can wholly accept or refuse their thoughts and my image in them. Everyone is distinctive in their own way and the mental position from which things are viewed vary considerably from person to person. May be the unsmiling face that I wear  which reveals little emotion or sensibility must be the reason why they see me serious. I feel, I am an amicable and a jovial person who prides in befriending people.  

4. We say "Don't judge a book by its cover". Do you really believe in giving only second (not foremost) priority to external presentation?
 -"Real book is not one that we read, but one that read us" is an adage that lets us take a serious note on the proverb mentioned in the question. To yield this famous saying, one must possess the talent to know the world around them. Physical appearance to some extent proves an allure, but I feel the importance of kind human being inside. Therefore, judicious and sensible decisions has to be ranked on top as physical appearance which is perishable can often be deceptive and delusive.

5. What's so special about you?
  -It is good to be a narcissist sometimes. So I will say, I am the special one. Life isn't fair and everyone knows it. People are born with flaws and so I am. The serenity within me lets me live a tranquil and flavourful life. That's an asset of special worth within me.

6. What would you like to give the world?
  -Giving and taking is a part of life. It wouldn't be justifiable to say that I can do great to the world. At the most, I can pray for the sentient beings breathing the common air for prosperous life full of merriment.

7. What is love?
  -Willingness of ones heart to do anything out of affection is love. 

My nomination for the award and I urge her to answer the above same questions.

Pain and Gain:- Real Life Experience

A fortnight ago, I was feeling awfully weak with back pain. At first, the pain was bearable and thought it was due to my poor sleeping style that didn't interest me to spotlight it. The discomfort persisted with no sign of relief. I felt the piercing vibes all over my abdomen part and was feeling agonizingly uncomfortable even while travelling in the bus. The sense of uneasiness while eliminating urine stressed  me, forcing me to think of various diseases.

At one point, aching aggravated and I had to combat it for hours. For the first time, I had this tormenting experience. I got my hands to the laptop, opened google page and typed the symptoms. Google page  displayed Urinary Track Infection and other related diseases. I have no habit of visiting hospital and usually curl under the blanket whenever I am sick. Read the early signs and symptoms of the particular disease and the home remedies with a hope of getting out of the pain. 

I struggled to breathe the proper air. The day wasn't mine, all my friends were out to play football. I could hardly resist the pain, a displeasing and painful experience. As dusk approached, friends returned, only to see me tossing with my pillow. Perplexed with my unusual posture, one of them rushed into my room and inquired if I was sick or not, to which I calmly replied nope. Seemingly, he wasn't convinced to see me replying with contorted face. 

Prior to their arrival, I messaged to friend about my sickness and requested him to come over my place. I knew he was just too lazy to turn up. He wrote, "you're strong and can't fall sick" with LOL appended after it. Well that was humorous, but I didn't have stamina to take it nor felt like explaining to convince him. It was only after their repeated persuasion that I agreed to visit hospital. I knew they felt helpless to see me struggling and opted to take me hospital.

It was only after reaching hospital and the injection that I wore a big smile and felt like a glowing bulb all over again. After various examination, Doctor explained me of a 6mm Calculas that has dropped from kidney and entered the VUJ. Illnesses related to kidney or renal organs, people instantly suggest us to drink plenty of water and I got lots of advises from various people. I was also well informed of it and guess that was the human dissonance which walls from  doing the right until we are really sick.

As I get up for the another mundane day, it gives me a sense of delectation for having got the opportunity to live a day more. Everyday imparts me with new knowledge and lesson. If it was not that terrible pain in the lower abdomen, I wouldn't have visited the site from which I grabbed lots of information. It will definitely orient me to the path of healthy living and let others around my radar know about the health tips if they need any.

The following are the 10 common habits that destroy our kidney:
1. Not emptying your bladder early
2. Not drinking enough water.
3. Taking too much salt.
4 Not treating common infection quickly and properly.
5. Eating too much meat.
6. Not eating enough.
7. Painkiller abuse.
8. Missing your drugs.
9. Drinking too much alcohol
10. Not resting enough[source: internet]

I aggregated the above detrimental points about kidney from internet. By knowing the cause, I genuinely feel we can alter our lifestyle and habits which deteriorates our health and adopt something called healthy lifestyle.

The Lots Have Been Drawn

Playing football and organizing futsal competition has now become too mainstream. We do it quite often and get injured with bruises on our body which takes time to heal. Time to time gaming and sporting keeps one fit with tight muscle and comfortable body. To be in the field once in a while is not at all a wise idea as the consequences of the game comes out worst with torturing body ache and muscle strain.

Unavailable in the ground for many reasons, we are now into PES competition in our laptop. The best part of PES 13 is that, it is more realistic and original with better graphics than the older versions. It has the attractiveness that interest me to play in laptop just like playing in the ground. Infact, playing in laptop may be easier than playing on pitch, but mental pressure and stresses are excessive. The movement and the control of the game depends on how smart we are and the time we take to decide for the next move.

I won't suggest people who find difficulty in stress management to get into the competition because it will dispirit and make you go fatigue.  Mind gets disturbed and stresses your body which may deteriorate your health. Participation is more important than winning is just a saying and everybody rushes for winning. The urge  to win the bet or competition puts you in a situation whereby anxiety and stress over powers your coolness.

Do anything that our heart longs for, no matter how risky it may be, that's the charm of our life. Today, we are into a football competition in PES 13, the right place to showcase our talent even if it proves futile in the field. We have collected an entry fee of 100 rupees each from the participants which numbers to 15. The competition is absolutely fair and will be conducted without any flaws. The fixture is already drawn  and team  is selected on a fair lucky dip basis.

The entry fee which amounts to 1500/- will be utilized for shopping kitchen stuff. Those who get knocked out from the beginning will be given the task of shopping and preparing the dinner which no one would love  to. Even eating could have been the hardest task if it wasn't necessary for our survival. So everyone will try to be the last man standing in the tournament to avoid kitchen work.

In this way, our PES 13 competition is going to spark out amusement and rigorous excitement among friends with spectacular goals  and sensational display of talents with the joystick. All are excited for this big event and even those who aren't skilled with this game are equally interested to be a part of this event  organized as a get together away from home.

Friends are busy exploring the status of the players of the team they got and studying the team's play. Luckily, I got Arsenal FC which is one of the strongest teams in Europe and the club I am most familiar with on PES 13. Even then, I expect a fierce competition from rest of the participants as they are  damn good at football on and off field. We are just few hours away from this  scintillating order of the day. May the best and most deserving buddy triumph and be rid of kitchen work.

A state of Well Being

Just like we hate to travel through a bumpy road, no one likes to experience a jittery ride in life. People are often saddened by the past aching incidents and stranded, unable to take up any further steps with a fear carved in the heart because of the past experiences. Be it disheartening and intolerable, getting up stronger is all one must always aspire to make a new beginning and a beautiful ending.

Life gives us new lessons everyday and is  ought to come in our way all the time. Determination and boldness are what makes us attain our goals and enthusiasm and  habit is what keeps us going in the quest of our goal. People are kept busy by the so called big life. The enamor of good and joyous moments in rest of our life doesn't come easily without sheer hardwork and some sacrifices. 

At times, we must shove aside those very passions that make our life worth living. Happiness is a life long pursuit, but there are times in our life when one has to choose between ones own and that of loved ones. This require utmost strength, courage and in most cases commitment. The serenity to accept each and everything in life be it good or bad is something a wise and smart people have in their veins.

kindness and ability to say NO! is preyed upon by the very people one hopes to keep happy. Being happy is our priority. In certain occasions, happiness may prove exceptionally awful and displeasing to the well wishers as people mistake kindness and generosity as something to gain from. Their action turn into a lust in well wishers' eyes as they are blindfolded by the urge to relish happiness out of materialistic life by sorting into unethical acts.

Even our parents feel the charm of parenthood only when they are able to deliver the needs and wants of their children. A slightest of health problem to their child will panic them, leaving them in a troubled mood. Most of the people keep happiness in their top list. In different walks of life across the country, people yearn for the very word. People at far flung remote villages are more into hard labour in their fields for seasons, guard crops from wild boars and other animals to reap a good yield.

Life in cities and towns are enjoyable only when, happiness is in our way. Office goers are kept engaged with the hectic and mind numbing office works. This is one small action a citizen must render to the country. Of all, the ultimate goal for doing a hard labour under the hot summer sun and torrential rain to the mind numbing job in offices are all towards achieving self contentment and happiness. The satisfaction that we get is the reward which can be labelled as happiness.

One has to overcome hardships, stresses and low points of life. We shouldn't simply take or think anything in a pessimistic side. The love and care that we get from our parents are evergreen and unconditional like a coniferous which never wilts or shades. They are happy when they can feel as well as see the lively faces of their loved ones growing up. Exceptionally, some people are born rude, who never takes charge of the their children. Being a socialized animal, we have got the capability to become wiser and responsible with age which sparks the state of well being.

Weekend with new friends.

Monday is the day which ushers a feeling of intense aversion. After a day or two of rest, we resume and get back to the conventional routine. The fagging feeling and holiday mood still remnant in our mind makes no charm to get back to the track. I see, people verbalizing  reasons as why Monday turns out so stuffy and tiresome.They got their own say and I ain't different either.

By the time I woke up from my comfy bed for college, it was almost 11 and then I realized today is Monday. Half of my classes were over by then and two more to be wasted even if I go to the college as it takes an hour to reach college from my apartment. I felt a huge load all over my and the attractive force of my bed was much more stronger than the earth's gravity which compelled me to laze in bed whole day.

I have nothing to blame, but to share the relishing weekend that I spent with new friends.  Weekend was a wonderful one for I felt like a free bird realized after being caged for years. A mate of mine arranged a friendly match with our Bhutanese friends of National Institute Of Technology, Warangal. Everyone of us acknowledged his plan. We gave him the go ahead with his plan and got the green light from our friends in Warangal.

Earnestly, meeting up our fellow citizens in foreign soil makes ones heart fill with utmost joy. This was my first trip out of my college. I am a hardcore admirer of European football, but  haven't been so serious in the ground for years. My talent in field is almost nil, but more than this I am an ardent and enthusiastic supporter.

Our plan to go elsewhere, meet and make friends popped out during our random talk and turned into reality. It was a good time which would certainly become a good memories in time yet to come. More than anything, I got deeply moved emotionally by their cordial reception. Forgot the fact that I was in a new place as they were too good and jovial as person and in heart.

The warmth within me which was an effect of their heartiness and good companionship was immense that I can't put it in words. Our team was of no match to their in form team and thumped us with 5 goals. This was so little to get dejected or demented because, I visited them to make friends and to know each other and  I was successful in doing that.

Two days,which usually seems like weeks while in college just came in like a flash of light. It was a memorable moment which imprinted lots of fond memories in my heart. Of all, I feel overly favoured for getting chance to meet new friends which is something that I desired before going there.

Add captio
Even the sizzling heat couldn't stop us from posing for pic. Gone fatigue after the match, but still with heavy smile.

Timid Heart-Destined To Be A Loner.

Karma was born and nurtured in a beautiful hamlet of eastern Bhutan. Caused to be born as the youngest in the boy's family, he was treated with an excessive favour. Privileged to be the luckiest and the most pampered of the family, he grew up as a village urchin. Being brought up in a big boy's family with four other elder brothers, he enjoyed everything including the emotional help from his elders. He was the mischievous lad of the small village. He frequently troubled his neighbors and the caretaker of the Temple. 

Associating with his only friend of same age Dorji, they made up the perfect match in doing anything what people thought as an inconceivable pranks. They had an intimate bonding of good friendship which kept them together throughout their childhood days till high school. It was only after 9th grade that they had to separate as Karma left the prestigious school owing to some unfavorable circumstances. Though apart from one another and miles away, they were in touch through letters.

The act of departure is often seen more than a melodramatic action. Going away from the dear ones set up an emotional infliction. At home, they relished unconstrained liberty and freedom to lavish upon. Life for Karma was no longer same. He was ought to be a changed person in the new environment. People around were just his acquaintances. Such a situation obliged him to be mentally fit in the new atmosphere. 

It took no time for him to adjust and adapt. Getting out of rustic life posed a challenged to him. Of all, he was barred from doing all sorts of pranks. He got drenched thinking of the his ludicrous act which gave him the nostalgic vibe. Befriended few of the classmates and soon became good friends. During leisure time, friends talked about the girls of their school. Such talks didn't bring any sense of curiosity to him, not even to a slightest point. So did his friends show little interest in talking about the topic to him.

Even in the class, he was so silent. He never uttered a word unless someone came to him and talked to him. To be precise, he was a fainthearted guy and had no quality to stand out confident and distinctive infront of new classmates. He blushed when his girl mates greeted him. That probably described the difference between the children who are brought up in the town and rural areas. Undeniably, it was one of the stumbling blocks of growing up in a family with whole bunch of boys. .

It is something strange and surprising to see sudden change from being the boldest and naughtiest to a quiet  timid guy. He was the heart throb of many girls in his new school. Few had the audacity to express their feelings via his friends. As always, he never reacted,  which made the girls feel pessimistic. He lacked conviction, boldness,courage and remained as a loner forever.

Trip To A Dreamland.

I felt so strangled that I yearned for free fall under the influence of nothing. Just as I coveted., I saw myself in the air freely flowing in the mercy of wind direction  Excessively filled with emotions and delightful feeling, I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Just in the span of few mins, I could travel thousands of miles, revisited places and explored new ones. At one particular instance, I flew over a place where lots of beautiful  girls were gearing up for the class. 

The place without possibility of mistake seemed familiar to my eyes. I had to run way back my narrow buffer memory way to check out if it is the same place which I visited before, but couldn't sort it out. Seeing those girls readying with books in their hands, I concluded the place to be a college. The place was well structured with buildings constructed with brick masonry. It appeared like a model college with an implausible outlook and appearance.

I remained suspended in the air as if in defiance of gravity and starred at the girls with my eyes fixed. Far from the corner of the corridor, came a girl which fixated my attention only to her out of many. She was tall, fair and ravishing. Just couldn't describe the excessive beauty and elegance she possessed. Her resemblance to the Goddess in classical mythology usually depicted as a beautiful maiden was just uncanny.

She soon disappeared into one of the classrooms and vanished out of my sight. The state of supreme happiness persisted within me for quite a time. I could no longer wait for her to return from the class as the sky above me got blanketed with thick clouds and boisterous wind. I just managed to fly over some other place just before I got soaked in the heavy downpour. 

As I was about to revert and retrospect that very moment which was greatly pleasuring, my roommate banged on my door and woke me up. Immediately reached to my watch to see that it was half past eight.  For so long, I was dreaming and that euphoric feeling stretched my facial muscles . I was in the world of fantasy for quite a long time. Realized that it was a dream and a moment of joy.

Gossip With My Room mate.

It is not only the girls who gossip, we boys often talk over silly as well as important issues. I had a chitchat with my room mate yesterday. We talked about the unveiling of the authenticated FIFA at Changlimithang to the developments in and around Thimphu and lot more. He touched upon the job opportunities for the graduates and asked me if I had anything to say on it as I was at home for vacation. 

To be frank, I ain't aware of the total intake announced by the RCSE, but heard there is only one slot for computer science which I shared with him. He remained silent and his eyes clearly reflected  a bit of concerns. He asked me the scopes in private sector which I had to say no as I really don't know the real opportunities in privates and corporations. 

I too felt the weight on my shoulder when he came up with the talk on employment opportunities. As a student, to pin down infront of the books is the most monotonous and a heavy task. Some subjects make us to catch some Z's and rest are encrypted which we simply give up. Yet every student aspires to be in organisation, whereby young talents are considered and employed with great pride. 

Being a student myself, I do wish of working in a dynamic organisation. When we are students right now, we complain of this trifling student life which we gonna miss it forever after few years from now. People say working life isn't charming and amusing as college life, but I take it as a step ahead in ones life.  

Everyone is concerned because of the staggering number of students graduating every year. The limited seats available in the job market has left the graduates idle for years. Our government has adopted various ways to resolve the unemployment issues, which is laudable and worth of million dollar appreciation.

We can fathom the challenges faced by our country with growing population. If only we had multinational companies, the problem could be solved. For the least, it would be beneficial if our private sectors were well established which can lessen the burden.

On other hand, there are reasons for us to smile graciously for being born in the country like a paradise. Everyone lives with utmost happiness, joy and I assume this is what people are actually born for. We never realize the importance of education and remain less pragmatic until we reach the job market where competition is very tough.

Imagine what would be running in the minds of those pursuing Computer Science when the government slots hardly exceeds five. Similarly, thousands of graduates sit for civil service examination for about some three hundred vacancies.

I can foresee the stiff competition that I must face it boldly. The ever changing scenario has contemplated people to think vaguely. People often feel the goose bump all over the body with a fear of remaining jobless. At our level as a young and jubilant heart, everyone has to be innovative and inquisitive in our own ways.

We should rather feel cheerful and thankful to the government for their touch on to the youths. No one should feel dejected with the current state of job market for we firmly believe every problem is solvable in one or other ways. Just like they don't want anyone of us to be left idle, we should also work on our own to help them resolve the unemployment issues was what my friend uttered which was worth taking in.

Welcome 2014

It has been almost a month or two that I haven't opened my blog and updated it. I was away from my college on a month long vacation which was refreshing. Getting together with family, friends and the closed ones imparted me with the vitality and energy for upcoming semester.

I welcome new year with new plans, dreams and most importantly with prayers and good wishes to all the people around. I got no resolutions this time too since finding a solution to my resolution has always been a problem. Even if I had any, I wouldn't have lived up to my words like many other people.

Who knows, 2014 may be an adventurous and tripping year for me. People might have celebrated the special evening with their loved ones and friends around the bonfire or in party halls and at home with heavy brands of liquor and fireworks.For the last few days, I made trips to many new places and eventually reached where I sojourn. 

Celebrated the new year's eve in a different manner. I saw myself in the train heading for my college. All I heard was the rattling sound of wheel and whistling of train which woke me up time and again. The chill midnight wind blowing through the spaces between the shutter and the window frame of the train kept me awake until morning.

I toured the nearby compartments and bogies to see if anyone was awake to greet upon the arrival of 2014. I just saw people catching a sound sleep,  curled up under the blanket. Surely, they might have had the mind to celebrate in different way than snoring if it was at home. The day long journey fagged them out to the point of exhaustion putting them into a deep sleep.

It was totally a different experience for me and a unique way of welcoming new year with loud honking and rattling sound of train wheel against the rail track. People often say that if we drink during the new year's eve, we land up drinking through out the year or quite often. If it is the case, I should see year with full of tripping memories and excitements.

Happy New Year
