My word to ENGINEERS (CST 2012 graduates)

Photo from:
Congratulations to 2012-graduates of College of Science and Technology (CST). We are really proud to have one more batch of competent engineers. I foresee you all proving the quality and worthiness of CST. I feel much relieved to think about you all. It is now crucial time in your life. I am sure at this point of  life, you will have mixed feelings. Excited-nervous and saddened to loose those friends with whom you spent four to six of your formative years. 
I just wanted to tell you that the career choice once made is, in fact, irreversible. So, I request all of you to make your choices meticulously. Don’t be simply lured towards fleeting (momentary) incentives. Take the best decision. I don’t have expertise knowledge or much experience to guide you all but still, I can’t hold my intentions to let you know, at least some facts I have come across by just graduating a year earlier than you.

It may be good to consult seniors, friends, relatives or anybody but I tell you all not to listen to anyone’s suggestions. It is you who is going to succeed or fail. We all know that as an individual, our perspectives vary. As has quoted, “one man’s meat is other man’s poison”, the best job for one may be the worst for other.

Tuesday : Early Drivers' day

The recent initiative of 'Pedestrian Day' on Tuesdays has generated mixed reactions. Some like it, while others  with or without any substantial reasons blame the move. It is natural to revolve our chats around most recent happenings. As a human, it is inherently habituated to resist the change. For instance, quite often, I am very uncomfortable with new features in my facebook page. I know, I must make myself adaptable with those changes and take positve advantages of the new change and after all be the change itself. Nothing is constant in this world. The only constant is, the constant change. 
Cycling for fun
The chit-chat may be indulged to disgrace the intent behind the initiative but in my opinion, anyone with common sense should think twice before doing so. What can we really contribute by doing so? What are we going to loose by doing so? Even if we can't appreciate its noble intentions, at least, lets stop others from doing it. Let's stop contravening the positively framed action that will benefit ourselves in long run. I don't see any problem in walking even in scorching sunny days or raining 'cats and dogs'. Infact, it is inconvinient and I too, notwithstanding being the ardent supporter of the intiative, sometimes feel ill-at-ease for the change. But, I must have passion and patience to let the walking be part of my travel agenda. I got too conditioned travelling in car, no matter how short the destination is. No one can deny the fact that modern technology breeds laziness as a part of inherent character.

TAshi Delek on 2nd June

Today is very special day of all Bhutanese to remember. It is also special day for global citizens to understand its significances. The day should be remembered and valued. The globally accepted noble philosophy of Gross National Happiness (GNH) was put forward and expressed as our national development approach by the youngest king in the world on this special day.  We are blessed than ever before to enthrone most dynamic leader and of course the wisest of all leaders in the world. Our king’s far sightedness can never be overstated. The so called experts took so long to realize the appropriateness of the GNH philosophy, but it was foreseen and initiated few decades ago by our beloved fourth Druk Gyalpo.
We should always keep ourselves reminded for having the king that no one ever had. We can ask ourselves, would any leader in present world sacrifice one’s life for the benefit for his people? It galvanized eminent world leaders and philosophers alike who had been preaching about it for so long. Our beloved fourth Druk Gyalpo is a living legend for every aspiring leaders to eye on.   Salute to our kings and his brainchild philosophy that made our nation known to the outside world. It is with his noble initiative, the democracy is smoothly established. The people in countries like Syria, Egypt, etc. had to shed their blood for the same reason.
‘TASHI DELEK’ to His Majesty, king Jigme Singye Wangchuck for successfully completing his golden era. The global citizens of this age are blessed to have leader like him. He is an epitome of real leader for other leaders to follow.

Good luck and have wonderful day for all viewers.
