A thinkable Paradox?

When I last visited my home; I was working on a project. A photography project that required me to take photos of the tourists hot spot places back home with the android application called "Smart_Torch Relay" in the frame. In the foremost having been selected among hundreds of other applicants to be a part of the freelance blogger crew to the 2014 Incheon Asian Games was in itself an honor. 
Come September 19 and the city of Incheon will see pool of athletes, sportsmen and game enthusiasts to take part in the 2014 Incheon Asian Games Festival. In this 17th Asian Games festival is a specialty in the Torch Relay, having it made electronic and accessible to any one with android smart phone. Thus the promotion of the specialty is in itself an important part. 
Hence, in it's quest; as crew members were assigned, I embarked my journey towards number of historical sites in Thimphu as well as Paro. I took pictures of the tallest standing Buddha Statue in Kuensel Phodrang, the T…

The Conference with the vacation!

Hello Folks!
Yes I am back; and it is rainy in Dhaka as late. While it makes weather to be cool and calm negating the excruciating heat of the time; it creates lots of mud scores on the streets and most often my bus to the class is stranded on the way. But that is fine because I get to sleep more; and well if you say sleeping is the waste of time; I have heard quiet poignant adage saying sleeping is the best meditation! The traffic doesn't help at all! Just as always, the city flocks in huge number of cars, buses and lorries not to mention the bikes and rickshaws that often leads the way outward. Whatsoever, I am back now; and I am cognizant enough to say that now I feel like a doctor with wards and Outpatient Department taking most of my times!

It has been a while, and I admit I am such a lazy one. On it's list was my travel schedule that kept me busy for the past month. Good vacation it was! I was in Mumbai with 12 hour layover on my way to Colombo for World Conference on Y…

Charred Lung for Enlightenment!

The buzz doesn't go off the range on call of duty. Neither can an uncanny physique of faint lady appearing off the minds curtain. Life unveils the charismatic de-facto on a level you know less of. The control doesn't cease. Nor does our conscience of wanting what we wish for. The futile justice of politicians;  level of statesmanship and eloquence of their words doesn't do no despair. But well neither does a humming songs of amateur blokes elude our tempts. We are lost! just like the fading winds in the leash of loosing more; concerning less of whether we have more to give than to take from. The law doesn't stop; built upon the greed of natural evolution! The stage is on and it is yours to play!

The pact doesn't get any worse! A smoking monk? corrupted politician? biased journalist or untended repose of highest echelons!  The reasons hummed from the tums of note that monk doesn't have agreements with Buddha not to smoke. That reckons the slightest bits of our …

Why NC's decision to 10 years experience for Elective Offices maybe wrong

The recent decision by the National Council on requiring the ten years experience in taking the elected government office didn't come as a good hearing to me and most youths alike.

As a youth activist; I have been working and trying to find the voices of youth included in our decision making process. I had the idea of model YOUTH ASSEMBLY, which after thorough discussion with few friends of similar interests barged on with a similar assembly called YIDDD. While the main focus was to foster the deeper understanding of the political issues in and within the country; the assembly herald quite an interesting platform rather.A more conducive and lucid in ways of educating on how to deliberate and debate on an issue and refute in a way necessary. Either way, the focus wasn't adjusted towards bringing our youth's voices in decision making process. The NC's decision of 10 years experiences has put another bar.

As opposed to our cliche of saying 'youths are the future of o…

Why I think the NC's decision to tobacco act is Right

The country saw a furor of posts in online forums and other platforms with many expressing the cackle over the late tobacco amendment bill endorsed by the National Council. While some expresses the rear back policy in having the law intact; some goes on with the flow; few among us are the legitimate silent observers with a slight notion of judgement on what is wrong and what might construe our reasons. With eighteen eminent hands raised up high; the act was to be tabled for National Assembly's summer session. While to many smokers it was a bliss, it caused an interesting thread-line in online community to read and discuss on.

While I must say tobacco banning had quite an impact in Bhutan both at individual and national level. The frisk was dominant in populace of middle groups and most usually differed the shining few. This is what one may call the unequal law. We have seen that while there were people who went behind the bars for three explicit years in possessing mere extra pac…
