Celebrating Life, Celebrating Friends: Episode XIII

"Passang, do you have Baba?", said my father from living room.
"No Sir!", said Passang. While Banka and I were laughing.
"Don't worry Passang, I won't tell your mother. If you have please give me some, I am desperate", said my father.
Banka and I kept on laughing.
"No Sir, I don't take Baba", clarified Passang.
"I am desperate Passang, I won't tell your mother, please give me if you have some", said my father again. Banka and I continued laughing. 
Passang then said, "Sir, I don't take Baba Sir. Banka has it!". It is at that time, Banka stopped laughing and looked at Passang with his annoyed and agitated face. That's was his face before he would beat up someone. Yes, in every group, there's a muscle man or someone who is good at boxing or fighting - Banka was our Boxer Bhai.

Being Pessimistic.

My wife told me once that had she met me before, she would have made a very optimistic chap out of me. I think she is right in this way, and with time, I think I have become a bit positive. 

But, in my defense I write about why I think I am pessimistic : even in this tone, there is so much negativity?

Celebrating Life, Celebrating Friends: Episode XII

When I was young, I used to play football. Then, someone had this idea of making me one of the Captains in Motithang, and I left playing Football. 

Not that I was over burdened with responsibility: I just didn't want to get beaten up by boys at football ground. Well, there always were rumours or whether it happened or not: But I had heard that those days boys would beat up captains.

The Lost Innocence

There was a time, when we believed in so many wonderful things that we were all happy pills - with our innocence and ignorances about everything and anything. Perhaps, many still loiter and linger upon the corridors of high schools, for those were the days, not many worried about what they wanted to be next. For me, those were the days when I longed for lunch breaks.

How I regret it all.

There was a time, when I was too much engulfed by the mysteries of world, and it was me against the world. Yes, the world. Perhaps, it was those gullible days, or those were the days when everything got me. The days, when everything and anything pissed me off or I would get effected. 

Those were the days, while traveling to Delhi, I would read about Obama being hurt over Israeli people being bombed - and of course forgetting the Palestinian's. Those were the days of confusion over god, equality, religion, love, hatred, philosophies, cosmos, quantum physics, politics, literature, and everything that was under the sun. Those were the days while I nurtured my mind like a porridge - everything boiled up together.

Luck, Life, Aim and Ambitions

Most often folks just wish to be rich, they just do. While only handful people out there, actually, desire and quest upon their venture to accumulate wealth.

My thoughts upon Expanding Thimphu.

I am not an Urban Planner, and my thoughts are limited to the technicality of the project. However, I reckon, I am an ardent observer and it is out of this curiosity that I intend to write today about Thimphu. 

A couple of days back, I had visited Taba. It was my friend's site and I had just accompanied him. While he was busy with his client, I went around his site and suddenly my eyes got struck upon Dechencholing area.
