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.

When Life Can't Offer much?

I was curious about Ronaldinho, and I just got curious, unlike all the idols we had in football, why this man, who especially was way too talented than the rest of the players, didn't gain fame.

Deluded Motivation

Many times, many experts - both qualified and self-proclaimed will let us munch upon notions and opinions pertaining to how to boost our economy. Or, they would point us, what really is wrong with our economy. 

It has been a while that I have been working and I can state that I have worked with all modes of people. I haven't worked with citizens of the entire world, but somehow, I have realized how much deluded we are.

Beautiful Truth and Ugly Lies

Now if you are into paintings, you will learn something about how truth and lie fell in love, and when they both went to take bath, lie took away the clothes of truth. How truth was too shy to come out of well and lie traveled all the world.

A Job Done Well?

I have now worked in various organizations, and in these years, I have learned one thing: the only thing that matters, is your reputation.

Reputation, Yes! That's all what it takes, that's all that defines you as an Engineer, Lawyer, Doctor, Teacher, etc.,

Coming in Terms with your Past.

Few months ago, me and my friend were just at the balcony, smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee. Five years ago, when I would tell him that everything would pass, he would simply cling upon his heart break. 

It didn't take him five years though, some three years down the line, he had gone through a lot and he got married to a wonderful woman, got a kid and has started making good money. I questioned him comparing his past life to today's, and asked him had he ever thought that his life would have turned this way?

Chocolates : Business Idea

Some three years ago, I was studying about molding and casting, it began with genuine interest upon concrete blocks, as I badly wanted to come up with my own paver blocks and bricks. I still cling on the dream and someday, when I have sufficient amount of money, I will do it. Just that the funding required right now is very massive, and the mix design for it being something very new in the market. It is hard to convince people to make them invest upon your idea, while all you have got is your data and an idea, and the investors just shrug away from you because they are too scared that it is something new. I don't blame the investors, even if I were one, I too wouldn't have easily invested.

The Housing Rent and Civil Servant's Pay Hike

Last time when the new government was formed, and they played black jack with the civil servants and their hike in salaries, there was a bit of tussle which the house owners as usual had won. 

So this goes a bit of a questioning something: we don't know that we know that we should know? Addressing the elephant that will be in our living rooms in coming days, the hike that might be there for the civil servants. With upcoming election and one of the many cards which the politicians will have in their manifestos, PAY HIKE!

Who gets the credit?

Lately, I feel so lost in everything and I hope there won't be much words and feelings to comprehend anything. Henceforth, I have learned to feel nothing. Whether this is sadness or contentment, I seriously don't know what I am feeling.

The Social Media Star.

Most often, I have wondered why is it that we humans crave for attention and approval from everybody? At times the circle of juries that we want to be addressed and appreciated by increases and at times it decreases.

Is anything any worth?

It's going to be 5:00 am, and I am not home, not that I was out drinking with my friends or was partying hard. I am just working on a tender document which was assigned to me a few days ago : 3 days to submission. In next five hours, I am meant to submit this tender - which will of course shape and change the entire building rules and regulations of Bhutan - not that I am capable of doing it but the tender document is about changing few of the guidelines and rules.

The World and Me.

There was a time, when I would get very much impetuous, I would get effected and affected by every little thing on news, perhaps too disturbed. There was a time I hated Obama for visiting Israel and not Palestine, I was in a train reading the Time Magazine, and throughout the journey I was so much affected by the hypocrisy of world politics. Didn't the Palestinians' have children? Didn't they have lives? There were many things that ran in my mind and there I laid sad and angry.
