Qualification-Experienece Debate


Introduction
There are a group of people who contend that the qualification is more important than the experience only to be disagreed by another section of the society. The former believes that the qualification provides understanding of a particular job and its nature and that for an organization’s success, qualified people are assets. But the latter believes qualification is important only at the entry level, but experience makes one carry out his job with greater efficiency and increased productivity.
Fore
A man is not judged by his experience but by what he has achieved in life. If qualification is unimportant, why so many parents send their children to study in India and good universities abroad? Qualification is like a badge that allows you to enter into good jobs and a key to bright career opportunities. A qualified man is highly respected.
Against
Well, a man maybe highly qualified but what is the point if he has no experience? Qualification alone has no value unless it is topped with certain knowledge of the job because only experience translates classroom knowledge into real-life works. And qualification remains only a certificate.
Conclusion
This is an ongoing debate everywhere. And I certainly respect both the views. But I would like to say for me it’s neither. For me it is the job satisfaction – the way I am treated in an office far surpasses qualification and experience. And I am made to believe given the level of satisfaction and motivation, even a peon will comfortably carry the task of an officer but a dissatisfied officer can sometimes be far less productive than a third class peon.

Bloggers are not journalists

To say bloggers are not journalists is to say oranges are not carrots. Bloggers are not journalists. That’s true. But can bloggers become journalists? Maybe. Can journalists be bloggers? Yes. In fact, it would be only proper and appropriate for journalists to blog their opinions as opposed to being 'politically' correct all the time. So why call oranges carrots when they are what they are?
Well, it is true – bloggers have no training in journalism. That’s why they are bloggers. And for the same reason they are  not journalists. No bloggers have ever claimed what they blog can qualify as ‘journalism’.  We all do what we love the most and give our best in whatever we are doing either reporting news or blogging. 

Journalists do it as careers. Bloggers do it (mostly) for hobby and out of passion. Most journalists also do it with great passion - that's true. The journalists get paid for doing their jobs while bloggers derive pleasure doing it. Journalists cover (report) stories eve…

Utpal Academy - Bhutan's first All-girls High School

Welcome to Bhutan’s first all-girls school. Isn’t that wonderful news to all our parents? Certainly, as a parent of a one-year old daughter I am excited about the coming of a school exclusively dedicated to the needs of girls. Our girls need special treatment, which we can for sure entrust the responsibility to Utal Academy, Paro.
I really like the name – Utpal – in Buddhist world, Utpal is another name for lotus flower, which is believed to grow from mud and yet blossoms into a beautiful and majestic flower. It stands for purity and many deities are depicted holding flower Utpal, more prominently Jestusn Dolma, the Goddess Tara. Symbolically, it also stands for the transformation of our girls. What an apt name for the school!
The Principal’s message posted on the academy’s website promises providing our young women an “opportunity to participate fully in a wide range of extracurricular activities to develop skills and qualities that will lead to successful and fulfilling life.” That’s…

Growing and feeding ourselves

Reports show that about 58% of Bhutanese are involved in agriculture, but the sector contributes only about 14% to our Gross Domestic Product. According to Bhutan Trade Statistics, 2017, Bhutan imports vegetables worth Nu. 3,823,879,525 (US$ 58,828,916) and rice worth Nu. 1,979,747,923 (US$ 30,457,660). Isn't that a lot to chew? We are not even talking of other food items here. 









That means people who are into agricultural activities are unable to feed the rest of us. That also goes to show how less we are growing on our farms and talks a lot about our fallow fields in rural areas. Now, if the remaining 42% of Bhutanese, who grow nothing on our own, can consume food items worth that much, we certainly have big market here for our agricultural produces. Don't you think? How do we do that? 


I think it's possible, at least to reduce our food imports. The key is to make farming sexier. Let's not leave it out to the rural farmers. In the recent years, we have seen young people…
