Questions piled onto questions


First it was the threat of a suicide.

Then his parents persuaded him to marry the girl he didn’t love. He tried all possible means to love her. But his heart never opened to her. But he married her anyway. Saving someone’s life was a better option, he thought. And when his supposed wife became too possessive, he could bear it no more.

Only regrets. 

Now when he finds someone he really loves, he seems to be losing that person just because he is married. 

Then the only option left is a threat of suicide. Will it work? Will she marry him? Will his wife go and hang herself?Will his parents listen to his heart this time? 

Questions piled onto questions. And no answers.

  1. I hope you are not planning something dreadful.
    Coming to one issue of yours, which i disagree- "Married man can't love" This human rule makes people unhappy. Why can anybody love someone else after marriage? heart is big enough!
    IF the guy in your article is allowed to be with the both then perhaps he will be happy! So god willing let the man have both!

  2. Gosh! Quite complicated. I hope the guy finds peace with the one he loves and his wife finds another to love more. How else otherwise can two lives be saved?

  3. I never believed it when someone said he/she would commit suicide. But then, I started reading about weekly suicide cases in the newspapers and it used to make me feel uneasy. But again, I am not sure our folks have committed suicide in the name of unrequited love. I will have to update on that. Perhaps some of you can help too.

    No one should use 'suicide' as a means to blackmail people. I think that is utterly selfish and heartless! Looks like more interested in jeopardizing other's life by taking your own.Very cheap!Don't you think? :)

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…

The Story Thief

When we were growing up in a small village in the central Bhutan, we would gather around our grandparents every evening in a room that would be dimly lit with a kerosene lamp. Our grandparents or the elderly members of the family would then take turns to entertain us (siblings and cousins who lived under the same roof) with their stories. Such was the only form of entertainment we had had then.  
Our grandparents would start their stories, which they probably would have heard them from their grandparents. A young poor boy becomes a successful farmer by a turn of luck, a man fights a bear, a poor boy accidentally marries a rich man's beautiful daughter, a lame monkey helps a boy find great wealth, a rooster regrets his action after he mistakenly accuses his wife and young men go on business trips to buy cattle, among many others. We grew up listening to many such stories. Sometimes, the storyteller would narrate the same story again and again, and yet every time it sounded more magi…

A 'holiday' for meat vendors

This Bhutanese month (May 16 - June 13) is observed as Saga-Dawa, a holy month in the country. It is popularly or infamousely known as the time when the sale of meat items is banned in Bhutan. And it's also an opportunity for us to put a light brake on our mighty meaty appetites. Consequently, restaurants are encouraged to serve their customers rich vegetarian meals during the period. Similar ban is also observed every first month of the Bhutanese calendar.
But going by what's happening, the saga-dawa is a month long mandatory and government sanctioned holiday for the butchers and meat vendors. Being holy month does not really make a difference to the menus in the restaurants from rest of the  months in the year. 
Meat is available in all the restaurants and even small eateries ensure that their customers are served their favorite dishes. They're only being wise and practical because if they don't serve meat their customers would move to the restaurant next-door that ser…
