Money is Everything

To me, when I think of money, it is a special decorated paper with numerical written on it to represent its worthiness with some images of great structures or person which are of about 98 cm2. The worth of money differs in different countries and its value differs from person to person. One dollar is not equal to one rupee.

Some may say, "Money is everything". Yeah, money is everything. If money is everything, then surely everything is money. It is an object of eyes and subject of mind. The reason I meant "Money is everything" may slightly differs with your opinion or I don't know. Here, I don't mean in terms of wealth, I mean in terms of "paper" money. Different people have different amount of money. Nobody would say, "I have this much money". Out of many, may be few would say just to influence others. Or else they would say, “I gave Nu 50000 to my brothers for constructing his house’’. Or some would say, “My children are studying in Private School, I have to give to her/him”, or whatever. (I am just assuming).
 When such a billionaire or malik say they don't have enough money, do you think a beggar would proudly say, s/he has enough money? Yes, I am sure s/he would certainly say but they will have their own reasons for begging.
Money is one of the deadliest things in the world. If you don’t know how to manage, it is your greatest enemy, it is a murderer. If you know how to manage, there are no other things as friendlier as money. When you have enough money, how do you spend it? Spend in buying most needed commodities? Or spend in buying those most luxurious things? Or spend on pleasurable and relaxing times? Or I don’t know if you spend your money on some other activities like partying, drugs, on opposite sex (men spending on women and vice versa) which are unsociable. All these activities depend on the amount of money you have.
Now let me say money as an enemy when you do not know how to manage it. To those who are addicted to drugs, money is their real enemy. If they have money, they will buy drugs from somewhere else even if the laws do permit them to do. If they don’t have money, they will either kill themselves or they will do some unethical deeds. From birth, we all are pure, nobody takes drugs, nobody lie, nobody steals, so on and so forth. As we grow and as things changes, everything thing happens which is I must say “money’. 

To those who are in relationship and have children, do you spend your money to others (I mean other than your partner besides your relatives)? You must be or I don’t know. If you are spending like that, you have double role to play which is more money. Rather you should spend for your own family which is more benefiting and safer for you at the same time. Once you enjoy with other partners, you will like to enjoy another time. After that you will get addicted and you will not enjoy with your own partner. The ultimate sufferer will either be you or your family, which is again money. The same principle applies to those singles that mingles and loiters. 

So how would you spend your money????
Money is friendlier in many ways if you know how to use it as I already mentioned above. It’s needless to explain. You know more than anybody else. 

In order to use your money efficiently and more purposefully, you have to prioritize what to buy, when to buy, what to do, so on and so forth. You have to make a list to do. We should know the time and the season that we face money shortage. For an instance, we know when to snow, so we prepare to face the snow by buying bukaries and collects firewood to keep us warm. Like wise, we should keep money to face money shortage. We also should know the days that we face money shortage in a month if we are low income earner. In that way, by know the time and the season, you can manage your money and there can’t be a day to say “I don’t have money’. 
There's must be a day in a month in which you face money shortage. Do you? If you are in service, you must be facing money shortage when you are about to receive next salary? Or you must be facing money shortage when there are annual festivals, rituals, losars, so on and so forth. But I don't know. You have to be proactive. After knowing the above activities mentioned, you have to keep your money, then only " Money is Everything''.

A Crow

Desperately searching for water
The story begins like this.....

Once there was a crow. She was in the verge of dieing because of thirst. As she was going round the valley, she came across a vessel. She looked inside the vessel and was very happy to see the water but she could not reach the water with her beak. She thought of a plan, then she put gravels inside the vessel and soon the water rises up. She drank the water and her
thirst was quenched. This was her hard work.


Searching for other alternatives
This story doesn't end here. Nothing achieves overnight. We should have patience. The same crow was once again felt thirsty. This time, she came across a wet wood where water drops from it. A drop of water was not enough for her to quench her thirst. The rate of drop was also too slow. She saw a broad leave plant nearby. She fold the leave and collect the water. After waiting for so long, the water filled the leave and she drank and her thirst was quenched. In this way, you need hard work and patience in your life.

You can't achieve greatness overnight. Working hard constantly without procrastinating can.

Merry Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
Ladies and gentlemen,

Before the resolutions of the another year
A day, worldly celebrated every year uniquely
By all walks of lives
To remember that there exist such a noble humanity has come.
When all comes together on the same day at the same time for the same purpose,
Then I must say, "This is the Happiness".
To me, its not just a celebration to remember Christ
But also to celebrate the achievements of the past 11 months.
From the east of Japan to the west of USA,
And from the north of Artic to the south of Antartic.
Lives dwelling in all longitudes and latitude,
Mountains and plains, rivers and oceans
And to the whole universe
On this very day
I wish you all merry merry merry "Christmas Day".
May all be Happy.
Let the sun of Happiness shine on every lives of the universe.

Change we Believe in

Do you believe in changes?
  Of course I do. I m a firm believer of changes. Everything around us changes, change in shape, form, smell, color, so on and so forth.

Did you believe in so called "The End of the World" in 2012?
Shamed and Blamed

I guess you had. But I don't know. Those believed in this hearing must have done unsociable acts which are wildly spread elsewhere like a wild fire.

I use to against this sometimes ago when I was in class ix. I use to debate with my friends regarding the '' End of the World'' in 2012. They use to say, '' we have few years to live, let us do some thing harmful''. I use to quarrel with them.

Believing in permanent thing is against the natural law of impermanence which I believe. Because of this so called "The End of the World", lives of many might have changed in off-tract ways. It should be otherwise. I don't know if somewhere else on the earth have murdered their livestock, jumped from the cliff, must have done wildly deeds just for believing others.

Nevertheless, you are different, you have to be different.


Facebook, the worldly used social network. Some use this net work for information, some use it for entertainment, some uses it to meet their friends and to make new friends. Some uses it to showcase their talents, beauty, smartness, wealth, body figure, so on and so forth which are of course advertisements.
Some must be using this net work to find life partners but I don't know. Some must be using it for bad intention. 

I certainly can't assure that this social network "Facebook" is very educative and informative. May be, I mean really 'may be' 32% of users lives might have influenced by negativity.

Nevertheless, Facebook is for you... Your life your wish..
However, Happiness is what I wish.

Hearing and Listening

Hearing and Listening isn’t same. When we hear something, that doesn’t mean we are listening. The sounds fall in our ears automatically and we do not really care about them. When we listen, our mind and ears connects together. The sense of seeing is also required with the situation. Our mind goes round and round leaving the gap between the previous words and we forget what is said.
Seeing and Observing
Seeing and observing is just like hearing and listening. We see things around us every day but we do not care.

Water mills in Thrimshing Village

Water mills that were once widely used by farmers for grinding grains are now rarely found. Due to cheap sources of energy and availability of raw materials, they survived through generations. Water being the primary source of fuel to run these mills, they are located near river banks. This project was designed with the objectives to identify the raw materials used in constructing water mills and to analyse the problems in using water mills.
Materials & Method
This study was carried out at Thrimshing village under Trashigang Dzongkhag where traditional water mills are still found. Information were collected through face-to-face interviews with farmers, water mill owners, extension agents and the elderly people (who have better knowledge of water mills) in the study site using both structured and semi-structured questionnaires.
Results & Discussions
There are three types of grinding mills in the study area namely, stone mills (using hand power), water mills and modern mills using diesel as fuel. It was found that most of the farmers (13 farmers out of 30) use water mills in grinding their dried grains.
Water mills are built using raw materials available in the locality. The walls are made either with stones or bamboos. The roofs are made of bamboos which do not last more than five years. And the water mill sheds are located near rivers banks. Doors in water mills are made up of bamboos and are not fixed strongly. Grinding stones can be found only in bank of rivers. Those stones have to be shaped and curved into a sphere shape. Water mills are environment friendly. They are easy to operate and do not produce pollution. They are indeed very useful, cheap and ‘green’ technology.
However, one of the major constraints of using water mill is due to shortage of water in dry season. Sometimes, the water in the streams gets dry even to turn the turbines.

Water mills are fully indigenous technology made by local people using locally available raw materials. There are several possibilities for developing water mills, using local resources which can be more efficient to solve the problems faced by the farmers

Why do you think deer has wrinkled forehead?

There was an elephant living near the pool formed by a stream. Every time he goes to the pool she found the water muddy. One day, elephant was so annoyed. He looked around and saw a deer grazing in the forest. He called the deer and said, ‘Do you have any idea about the water source’. ‘No’, replied the deer with much fear. ‘Go and see the creature at the source’, said the elephant angrily.  She pulled her hair and gave to the deer. ‘Tell the creature that I am the boss of this place’. The deer took the hair of an elephant and went to the source. The source was not very far.
Such a huge creature
Upon reaching the source, the deer found a porcupine borrowing the earth. The deer asked what was he doing. ‘I am building a home’, replied the porcupine arrogantly. The soil burrowed was all fallen to the water and the water has become muddy. The deer told him about the elephant and showed him the hair. The porcupine pulled a quill from his back and said, ‘show this quill to the elephant and tell him that this quill is the smallest of all’.

A small creature
The deer went back to the elephant. He found the elephant curiously waiting. ‘Who was there at the source’, said the elephant. The deer showed the quill and the words but didn’t tell her how small it was. By showing the quill and the words of the porcupine, the elephant ran away from the place. The deer then become hopeless and expressed his hopelessness on his forehead because elephant ran away from such small creature. That’s why, deer has wrinkled forehead.

Gross National Happiness Hierarchy

Happiness in the Universe
Happiness in the World

Happiness between the continents

Happiness within the continent

Happiness within the Region

Happiness within the Country/States

Happiness in the Community/ Society

Happiness with the Neighbour

Happiness in the Household

Individual Happiness
The happiness cannot be achieved without cooperation. If somebody acts in different direction, one cannot achieve the aims and objectives of any organizations. There is a saying that, ‘if a river is separated and flows in different direction, even the lamb can cross but a bull cannot cross if they combine together’. To achieve the happiness, every component should be considered. If any one of the component is missing, its like a ladder which has missing step.  Therefore, cooperation is the base of any organizations to achieve its goals.

A visit to Khuju Lhakhang

Coinciding with the birth anniversary of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal on the tenth day of the fourth month in Bhutanese calendar, along with Sonam Phuntsho and Dorji Wangdi, I visited the Khuju Lhakhang. It is about two hours walk from College of Natural Resources.
Khuju Lhakhang
It was sunny morning. We started our journey at 8:30 am. First, we went for shopping to buy butter lamps, incense and some offerings from Pulami.  On our way to Khuju Lhakhang, we visited beautiful Doronthang Lhakhang which is about half an hour walk from our college. It is peacefully located on the sacred slope just above the college. The site has many religious facts around.
We asked the way to Khuju Lhakhang to a nun. She showed the way and warned us about a bull on the way. We came across a junction of paths. We took the right turn. The path was actually used by the nuns and the people for collecting firewood. Even then, we went through the forest in search for a path. While in the forest, we met with a bull as told by a nun. We run as fast as we could to escape from the bull. Luckily we came to a right way to Khuju Lhakhang.

Taking an untravel'd path
It was our first time to visit Khuju Lhakhang. The path was not like any other religious site when going via Dorongthang Lhakhang. The steep slopes would touch your knees and the shrubs and hedges would bar your way. The gorges do not have end and the water was drowned in the mud. Unfortunately, we have forgotten to take knives.

Bajo town seen from Khuju Lhakhang

After ascending the slopes and rocky path, we reached to the Lhakhang at around 10:45 am. The Lhakhang is gorgeously located on the hill seeing all the green sceneries of Wangdue and Punakha valley. There were many visitors, mostly the students from Tencheling and Bajo. They told us that they had walked for four hours.

Khuju Lhakhang on the beautiful hill
The satisfaction you felt will be different. After reaching there, I felt as if I have reached to a land of happiness. So, feel the difference yourself by visiting such religious site.
From the Bhutanese film, “Sherubtse Ga Mi Ga”, an actor says, ‘Thinong namning so ngo ba tey joor ba la na, za ba kiy la za min ma ney la lhakhang ba boo jay bay dey loo ma la na. Za min ba kiy la za ma nay la Lhakhang jay bay dey loo ma la’. Therefore, it is not necessary to need opposite gender while visiting such place. There is no hard and fast rule in such case.
