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.

Our throw-it-away culture

Like all grandparents, my late grandma would call food 'tsampa rimpoche' and any fuss made about it would invite everyone's sneer and scoldings. Food is always treated with respect and is never wasted. "If you waste food in any manner," she would admonish us. "One day food will discard you and you will go hungry." 
What remained from the previous meal would be turned either into porridge or sometimes leftover rice would be dried in the sun. The dried rice would then be fried into puffed rice and consumed with cups of suja. When there was so much food left, especially during big events, leftover rice or kharang would be mixed with a small amount of yeast and brewed into ara.  
The only thing that I can vividly recollect from my primary school days is how we would be hungry most of the time. Food we were served was hardly enough to tickle our throats. We would be sent home only once a week on Saturdays and that was our opportunity to replenish our popcorn s…

Alive and kicking

This feels like ages since I last posted anything here. That shows how inactive I have become on my blog. It is such a pain to let it go empty, day after day. And I am sure that all bloggers share the same sentiments.

I have attempted to blog about something for a long time now, only to find myself failing to do so. Maybe that is my laziness. But sometimes, there is nothing new or interesting to blog about. Topics are crucial. As far as my idea of blogging goes, a post cannot be a mere record of personal events - everyday affairs - although there can be blogs about such topics and interests. For example, the one I am writing now - has nothing about anything in particular,  besides citing some personal excuses.

Bhutan is going through yet another interesting era in that we have just had our third parliamentary elections and the new government is in place. I take this opportunity to welcome the new government and a new set of cabinet members, the speaker of the National Assembly and th…

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…
