Mid-Life Abyss

There are mountains and vales in life. There are youths and old people. Old people hang on to ancient wisdom. Youth dwell on latest technology. Middle aged people have nothing to claim other than daily trip to work. We can only live between sad stories and reality, in between enjoyment and memories, in that moment when life is diluted by mundane things that sometimes is devoid of any sense. We can plateau in between mountain and vales, between old age and youth but the chances are that no one will ever remember you in your struggle during mid age through life. This is what we call a mid-life abyss.

People also say, youth is full of blunders, mid-age full of struggles and old age full of repents.

Ethical Dilemma and Food Corporation of Bhutan

Just as Royal Institute for Governance and Strategic Studies took helm to train world class leader in Bhutan, I am left determined to ask some pertinent questions that has been chiseling my mind for very long time to one of the privileged candidates of RIGSS, the Chief Executive Officer of Food Corporation of Bhutan. The question concerns ethics in business and moral responsibility as Chief Executive Officer of one of the oldest companies in Bhutan.    I bring forth this question because I could not keep quiet and it concerns ethical issues which touches the depth of human nature.  As a writer, I have always sought for refuge in my conscience. After having tolerated the swamp for very long time, I thought there are million reasons to ponder upon this case.
