Complacency, Internet and Blogging spirit

Oh god, today is already Febraury 4, 2010. On December 19, 2009 Tongyal posted a piece on his 2010 resolutions. He writes:

“All bloggers should resolve to post at least 2 posts a week (will seem very less for the regular bloggers, but let’s take the lazier counterparts into consideration). 

When I read it then, I thought two posts a week were f
less for any bloggers. But I was rereading his post again yesterday. I counted his posts and mine that came out in 2010. As of 27th January 2010, Tongyal has only three posts and he is already into the fourth week of January. And look at me – even worse. I have only two posts so far. The trend of not writing or rather complacency started in the last month of 2009.

Well, for Tongyal, I can understand he is busy with books. But what am I doing here? I didn’t have internet connection for nearly two weeks. Maybe that might excuse me if I be a little considerate to myself. On the whole it is complacency that gets better off me. Last year I have contributed some articles to the newspapers, but this year I only read others’.

And rereading my comments to Tongyal’s posts – I didn’t sound optimistic either about setting resolutions - the pain of breaking them.

But I think I need to reset my blogging resolutions – if it helps at all. And my internet connection is almost zero. It takes ages to post a post.  


  1. Hey, hey! Haven't been able to blog these days. And you are right, I quickly posted one. haha.

    Too bad about your internet stuff man. I am sure your office is just paving a way for a great connection in the near future. Unless your management team has a great vision of walking you guys back to stone age :P

    Well, I have bad news from my side as well. The course is getting really demanding. I am struggling to find a good time for sleep even. But I agree with you... on and off we should keep our excuses aside and try to keep posting something.

    Good luck with you mate.

  2. Why should we impose on ourselves to write articles? Write one when you feel like. I don't think we should make it sound like a huge responsibility.

  3. Kuenza, you will have an answer to that question when you see some sites like kuzuzangpo and nopkin run dry and stagnate itself to death.

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…

King Khesar is the People's King

He is a king who finds pleasure in combing every part of the country to meet his people and hear their plights. He is a king who treasures the nation’s young people and finds time to share golden moments with young graduates entering the job market. He is a king who goes out of his way to inspire our leaders with his invaluable wisdom. He is a king who is the first leader to console his people when natural disasters strike them and who takes time to share important news to his people. He is a perfect role model to the young people, a dutiful son, caring father, and a champion of “kindness, justice and equality”. Druk Gyalpo Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck is the People’s King!

In his heart-warming coronation speech to the nation, His Majesty made the following promise, “Throughout my reign I will never rule you as a King. I will protect you as a parent, care for you as a brother and serve you as a son. I shall give you everything and keep nothing; I shall live such a life as a good hum…

So what is the secret?

Cost of living in Thimphu is extremely high. No doubt about that. How do we ascertain it? When mid-level office-goers find it difficult to survive. But then it makes me wonder how those people who live on the daily national minimum wage of Nu. 125/day make their ends meet. Is this a serious mismatch between what we spend and earn? 
Looks like, some of us need to meet these people and benefit from their knowledge of survival. Maybe that way some of us can even save a few hundreds. If these people can very well manage their families and exactly match their expenses with the incomes that they earn, why do we need to go far for MBAs while we can do that right here on our doorstep? 
Of course, MBA is your qualification and does not necessarily reflect in the way you manage your everyday family affairs. 

Being greedy and not eating enough is different from making ends meet and also being in a position to save some for bad weather days. I certainly marvel at the people who live on 100 plus ngul…
