How likewise

Do you remember Paul the Octopus who predicted the winners of the world cup for spain against the Netherlands; well for the second elections in Bhutan the so called "oracle" is played by Bhutanomics!. Bhutanomics is a page on facebook where they openly bring out the true colours of the ruling government and the night before(second night of the black out period) posted on facebook their predictions of the 2013 elections and i must say they were 100% true. According to the predictions PDP(worlds smallest opposition) would sweep the elections by 32 seats out of 47 and the remaning by the opposition. The octopus and Bhutanomics are same in the sense that both remain omnious and have the ability to remain calm and very firm, the octopus cannot speak but simply show some gesture and so can bhutanomics not reveal its identity but simply state facts(good or bad) about the ruling government. I might write more later!

I had do!

Today is an important day for Bhutan as we decide towards the evening which party will form the new government. Through out the country the voting procedures have gone smoothly as compared to the first years of democracy as reported by the national news channel(BBS). However it was shocking to recieve an invitation from BBC to my father to be interviewed and since he lacked the ability to speak english properly i had to take the privilege to doing so!. Well let me describe the situation like, firstly my grandmothers parking lot located at the hub of the CBD seems deserted and no car can be seen today, secondly the night before, whole of the town was patrolled and thirdly the weather thorough out the country seems gloomy towards the afternoon and rainfall in some parts of western Bhutan. This year we have lesser problems compared to last year in terms of drunk voters and those that carried weapons. This time the battle between DPT and PDP who scored the highest number of seats during the primary rounds against the two other parties i.e Druk Chirwang Tshogpa and Druk Namrup Tshogpa. This time we have a tight election race as compared to 2008! After so many cold wars and unnecessary accusations against eachother;the final wait will be worth.

The Paradox

My hand is trembling as i write this post and i do not know how many people might despise me for my thoughts. The recent events at Bodhgaya questioned my faith in humanity because there is no reason terrorist should attack such harmless people. Everyday millions over the world fight for Tibet's freedom, in order to gain this so called "Freedom" innocent people have given up their lives and their happiness at stake. People promptly support slogans saying “Free Tibet” but deep inside they have no idea whether China really is going to free Tibet sooner. Why do we give our lives when we support peace and portray ourselves to the world as content beings?, when we can't even stop condemning nations and its time that we see things from a rational point. Because we are not aware of the fact that there are so many hypocrites out there just like those who were involved in bombing the sacred temples at Gaya.

A teenager defines love.

What is love? most teens would promptly reply saying its a magical feeling involving two opposite sex where eachtime you see that person you fall in love. But hey!! the love that we talk about is abstract and is philosophical in every sense. Lately i would define love as putting someone else before you; be it anyone, to have patience and to examine everylittle thing with endurance and commitment. Love is always about giving just like my paternal grandmother (smiles)and yes love is about conquering many battles of hate and it is about emphasising yourself in the shoes of other people even if your ego is too huge and love is respecting someone elder to you irrespective of him being good or bad. I wouldn't agree with the mundane and monotonous idea of love that the youth has in store not only because they are wrong but also that they are not aware of the real love!. Next time you say that your in love please make a correction and say you like someone and if thats not enough better say like him/her madly!!
