Hunting in the College Campus

Before this Monsoon ends, some graduating students from colleges under the aegis of RUB would find themselves joining some companies in the country, provided that they impress the interviewers and some form of luck is in their favor.

Some corporations in Bhutan find themselves saving a lot of time, money and effort going through a hectic recruitment process, thanks to the campus recruitment initiative. It is proving to be beneficial both to the graduates who are offered the jobs on the spot and the companies that hire them. It is beneficial to the graduates in a sense that they no longer have to search for a job in an already shrinking job market and that as soon as they finish their studies, they have jobs; thereby reducing family pressure. And for the companies that hire them, apparently they no longer have to go through a nightmarish recruitment process, but they still get to hire the best candidates – a win-win situation!

There are chances, however, that some students would end up in wrong places only to regret later. Some will accept the offer because they really want to work for a particular company. That’s good! Some will accept the offer out of sheer pressure, which does not bode well both for the company and the graduates. Therefore, some careful attention needs to be paid by both the parties so that everyone is happy at the end of the day. And having come through the same channel, I think I am in this position to comment. But my suggestions are to be taken only at face value.

Before the end of this month (June), a group of companies in the country will enter the gates of Gaeddug College to hunt for their prospective candidates. We wish all the participating companies and the graduates very best of luck in all their endeavors.

When FIVE is more than FIVE HUNDRED

Bhutanese parents complain that our children are exposed to so much foreign content and that they might soon forget our own root. Some parents also feel that their children respond well and better to stories that have Bhutanese characters and places in them. That's why the need for more and better Bhutanese books in the market. And we have only a handful of people who are committed to making this happen although the financial return is almost none.  
Bhutan can boast of not many writers. Here writing or publishing aspect of writing is an expensive hobby. In the first place, it is difficult to convince people to publish their writings and many leave it before they are halfway. Publishing is a complicated process. But here it is even more complicated since our publishers are not publishers in the real sense of the term. They would only 'publish' (print) school textbooks and in that they are only being wise - averting risks to their businesses.

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 …

Our Growing Opportunity

Last week, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forest had ordered the Bhutan Agriculture and Food Regulatory Authority (BAFRA) to 'temporarily' suspend the import of beans and cauliflowers. Laboratory tests had confirmed that these vegetables contain pesticide beyond permitted 'limit'. 
This is heartening for many Bhutanese farmers. This is truly our opportunity to grow and feed Bhutanese with vegetables grown and nurtured on Bhutanese soil. It is an opportunity to go bigger into farming and turn farming into a financially lucrative venture for our rural farmers, who still continue to grow crops for self-consumption. 
Otherwise, it is difficult for our farmers to compete with literally cheap vegetables that are imported from across the border, where they are grown in much much bigger quantity. Our farmers do not stand a chance at all to compete in the market. Thus, they end up growing only what's enough for their own families - the rest go waste, most of the time. Sam…
