Who says appearance isn’t intriguing?

Appearance is important. Yes, it is true and it is tempting too. The more I try to download templates for my blog, the more dissatisfied I become. That’s because my limited IT skills does not take me far. Every time I see a new template, I get carried away. And I get this I-got-to-have-this kind of feeling. Temptation is so strong that I would love to have a new template every day for my blog. It is now possible to have our dreams come true, thanks to all the wonderful people who are behind blogspot.com.

My temptation proves expensive, I realize. Instead of jotting down a few lines of thoughts, I end up spending hours at stretch trying to figure out html codes, which to me is like trying to make sense out of alien’s language. But I have managed to do a few in the past week. I am dissatisfied with it again.

Now it seems if a blog changes its appearance every day and does not carry significant a proportionate amount of posts, then the blogger can be said to be more concerned about the form than the content. Likewise one can deduce a lot of issues.

But you see, that’s way with us. And often it is the temptation, one’s unending quest for beauty and glamor that dispels marriage failures, I guess. The ocean is vast and unending, but it is the question of how happy we can be even when we are in this small lake or a little pond for that matter.

Appearance is intriguing, no doubt but we have a much higher purpose than to spend our useful energy in deriving this mere short-term satisfaction.

  1. Sorry, I couldn't help you on that, but i guess have been kind unkindly, look at your blog it is bettering by the day and look at mine, i am just there where i was. After my first failure i gave up and didn't want to experiment at the cost of losing so many setting i already have.
    You got it right, post is more important than the design.
    Keep writing!

We killed our Golden Goose

One of our most significant events this year is that of Bhutan’s exporting of eggs to India. A few years ago, we were importing them – in truckloads. This goes to show that we have the potential to grow and progress as a country, provided we put in a little more effort and work harder. Did you know, Bhutan today has 422,648 hens and produces 251,678 eggs a day? 
In July 2016, Bhutan Agriculture and Food Regulatory Authority (BAFRA) banned the import of chilies from India reasoning that the laboratory tests conducted confirmed presence of pesticides. And right there was our opportunity to grow on our own. The news was like winning a lottery and it sure was a boon to many a Bhutanese chili growers, as they now had ready market san competition from cheap chilies from across the border.

Then came the ‘off season’. That is when the price of chilies unreasonably shot up as high as Nu. 300-400 per kg. It was unreasonable and daylight robbery, many people protested. And then people took to the …

Can we build energy-efficient houses?

Before we know it, it is winter again! Almost! 
And like all winters this winter will be unforgivingly cold. Of course, some people think winter cold is far less severe than the extreme summer heat the likes of which you experience in Phuentsholing or Gelephu. The reason they give is that while you can dress in cool and warm clothes in winter to beat the cold, the summer heat has almost no solution. Being naked does not help. Fair argument, I must say, but some people who can afford air conditioners in their homes might argue that the answer to the summer heat is in installing the equipment. 
But I think the answers to both the extreme summer heat and unbearable winter cold rest with the energy efficiency of the buildings we live in. 
Rooms in some of our apartments are unusually tall that in order to change a fused electric bulb requires you to literally climb onto two or three tall tables stacked onto each other. It takes three to four solid men or women to hold these tables in place; …

We need Potholes Org

This is in continuation of my previous post where I mention that with the onset of winter the potholes on some sections of our roads "are finally giving us true pictures of how deep they are as the water in them dry up." 
Like the dust in the air, potholes are undesirable; they are nightmares for the drivers, fatal for the cars and spell danger for the pedestrians. I say dangerous because there are chances that drivers might lose control of their engines while trying to avoid these potholes and such incidences would lead to loss of human lives. 
We all know that the Department of Road (DOR) is doing an excellent job in building our roads. And the magnitude of the work they are executing everywhere, even as I type these lines, is truly impressive. Thank you, DOR for that. 
And potholes, I believe, are like wounds on a human body. If we take care of wounds from the beginning and treat them with care, they heal in time. Such wounds, when healed, leave no visible scars on our skins…
