Life beyond the Line

"It was too little but there was miles to go"
“zangpo are you done with the assignment,” I heard Nedup who just came rushing to the class and sat beside me. He was arranging the books which he had brought from the library on the table and was staring at my laptop screen, while I was busy writing my assignment. Other mates were busy chatting and some were in their own world, as there was enough time for the next class to begin. “Don’t ask me about the assignment, I’m having a tough time doing it,” I was frustrated at myself. It was not the first time I was having trouble in completing my assignments. “The assignment is due the day after tomorrow, hope you did not forget?” said Pema who was sitting behind me… I was lost in my own thoughts then. How I wish I had continued with my Taekwondo career as the national team of Bhutan.
“Congratulation! Zangpo”, happily said my coach. “You did well with the Third Dan examination, we are proud of you.” He looked cheerfully and smiled at me like he always did. He always wore a track suit embedded with our country name with a flag and the Taekwondo federation logo proudly where ever he went, be it in the gym or morning jogging also. People around the park and town used to stare at him and call out, “see the national team coach of Bhutan Taekwondo Federation.” He was a proud and a respected man in the society; every person knew him for what he did. “Thank you coach.” I was excited that I upgraded my Dhan to level three with all my sheer hard work and dedication.
The next day I got a call early morning after I was done with my breakfast. I answered the call, “Hello…” it was the manager speaking. I was startled to hear this “Zangpo, you contributed a lot to the country and have made the Taekwondo in Bhutan a popular sports among the people, moreover the sport has encouraged all the youths,” I was speechless then. “From the federation we are honoured and proud of you. And I’m happy that at least we could do something good for you. That is we are offering you a scholarship in Sherubtse College.” After hearing such words from the manager I was like a rock still on the top of the mountain. “Zanpgo are you listening to me. Are you there?” manager prompted me. “Oh… Umm, yes sir.” I was speechless.

Accepting Reality

Way towards my Hostel.

The day I broke my little clock
This poor heart started to yell
I helped my numb body to unlock

You were still at the same block
I know you have lived your life well
The day I broke my little clock

I still wish I could turn back the clock
Country is weeping for loosing someone who served so well
I helped my numb body to unlock

Though you were protected by the lock
Heart grieved to see your body inside the shell
The day I broke my little clock

Thank You Life

Thanks to Deki Wangmo for making me Cranes;its beautiful.

Cranes made from paper,
A paper brought from Japan
That’s the Origami paper.
It is hanged on a crippled broken branch.

The morning I wake up,
I see it, which is hanged above my head,
The moment I see,
The cranes, Sigh!
I breathe out thinking I’m still
Alive, alive to breathe again.

Thank you life for,
Giving me another chance,
I’ve hurt some,
made some cry,
Over a simple things and I’m sorry, for
I made you all cry.
I’m sorry I wasn’t a good child.
But from now,
 I’ll rejoice, the moment that I get.
In every moment and seconds of my life.

cranes hanged above my bed.
After meeting you,
I’ve realized the mistakes
That I have done, the mistakes
I wasn’t able to clear.
I thank you for making me into a person,
So reliable and responsible
Even in times of all trouble.

I’ve learned to lead
My own life doing simple deed,
That my own siblings would seek
From a brother like me.

I’m blessed to have a parents
So responsible and lovable,
From the universe, I wold love
To have a parents like the two of you.

Never in my dreams have I seen,
Never did I wonder, how I would
Be, without your care and your warm
I don’t regret not seeing such things
In dreams, nor wonder as
You never let me be alone and idle.

I love you both
With all my ounce of blood in me.
I thank god for making me your son,
And I’m sorry I wasn’t a good child
But today and now onward I’ll be

The one.

The Biggest Moth I have ever seen.

I took the picture of the Moth placing it on my friends hand to show how big it was.
I was on my way toward the toilet when I saw this giant Moth, took my breath away. I was stunned as soon as I saw it. I was seeing it for the first time in my life. Yes,  a giant Moth.

It is amazing to find such a beautiful creature in this region. Moreover the pattern and colour is really great and beautiful that in words I’m not being able to describe it but the picture says it all.

I tried taking the picture without disturbing it but when I took the picture it seemed like i'm taking a picture of an ordinary moth. That’s why I made my friend Chogyel of political science to hold it on his hand so that the viewer could know and understand the actual size of the Moth. Taking the picture on the hand really shows how big and magnificent its wings are. Moreover the pattern it carries is so catchy and coluorful.

Peak of Learning

Under the serene and blue sky lies a building coated in red with white patches build in 90s which still provides a platform for the students of Sherubtse College to learn and explore. This is the place popularly known as "The Peak of Learning-Sherubtse". Thousands of graduates have been produced from this place; a place full of beautiful and memorable memories that still makes it fun to be in.
Every after an hour each door opens one after another and emerges the young leaders and citizen who would be responsible for the country in future. They come out with the smiles and determined looks. The chattering between each individual fills the place, when there is an exchange of classroom.
when the door closes, we could hear student laugh, some clapping sounds could also be heard and voices of the lecturer giving their best knowledge in the room where teaching and learning process happens. Here, the dreams grow bigger and students set their goals for the future and work toward it.
The front lawn also provide students to relax and meet for mass discussions in an open air. Moreover some class are also taken there as to make the teaching and learning process effective.
The place that carries memories is fun to be in. It has provided many things and still stands strong for the future generation to come and learn in a place called "The Peak of Learning".
