We might publish them after all ...

This has been my one dream project. My friend and classmate Sonam Wangdue was kind enough to help me with the cover design. And then I lost all hopes. I stopped writing fictions and turned to blogging. Now I realized that does not bear much fruit either. I am one lazy blogger. 

However, thanks to Ugyen Gyeltshen and Kinzang Tshering, finally I am gaining some confidence. Thank you both. 

So, if everything goes well, Then I Saw Her Face might see the light of the day after all. Hope you will keep a close tab of this. 

And I am extremely delighted to inform you that Ugyen Gyeltshen (Tukuli as he is popularly known as on Writers Association of Bhutan blog) is soon publishing his first novel The Letter from the Mountain (tentative title). Congratulations to him. That will be one more refreshing addition to the limited Bhutanese book market. 

I am really excited. It is a touching story and a really good one at that. Please don't forget to get your copies soon.


  1. I stand firm-lets print together. LOL. Thanks for this post. Ur book is unique, people will love it.


  2. No comments means no takers. Dont worry, we will buy ourselves. LOL


  3. Looking forward la. Thank you. I am also looking for a publisher.

  4. Hi Penstar, I am glad I got a copy of your book. First I read one, tried another and another that it almost cost me a night's sleep :) Seriously, it was worth.

    Simple and light yet every story had something wonderful to say. I am quite sure, your book will find readers if you just reach them through some proper means.

    I am hoping to read a novel by you someday. Thank you and good luck!

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…

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…
