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.

Community of Bhutanese Bloggers Conceived

And finally it happened. I must say that it was by far the most attended Bloggers Meet. In the past we had bloggers agree to attend and cancel at the very last minute. But on June 24, 2015 – almost 100% of bloggers, who confirmed came. I would like to thank everyone for keeping his/her words, especially those who had to come all the way from Wangdue or Paro. Thank you!



35 Bhutanese bloggers met in Thimphu. We were honored to have the presence of senior bloggers like Aue Yeshi Dorji and Dasho Sangay Khandu. The meeting assumed more significance because of their presence. Equally, we were happy to have many young bloggers in whom we see so much enthusiasm and potential.



On top of many things that transpired during the Meet, one of the most significant outcomes was the unanimous decision reached to form a formal group of bloggers, a platform aimed at encouraging and inspiring more bloggers around the country. The members decided that we will call it Community of Bhutanese Bloggers (CBB) a…

When they are ready

The Ministry of Education discovered 890 'underage' children admitted in schools across the country in 2019. Thus, the ministry in May 2019 issued a notification revoking the admission for these children. Majority were in urban centres. 
Desperate, parents and the affected schools requested the government to intervene. They also requested the government to consider lowering the enrolment age to five years. Currently, in Bhutan a child can legally go to school only when s(he) is six years old. 
And that policy was strictly followed a few years ago to the extent that some schools refused to admit children even if they were short of a few weeks. So, parents, mostly in urban areas, resorted to faking their children's ages. Many parents were guilty of adding years onto their children's actual ages. However, most parents, we are told, managed to correct their 'mistakes' later. Faking a child's age was rampant both in government and private schools. But the story wa…

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…
