KNOW IT ALL

...there has been too many BBS interviews of incumbent or aspiring candidates of both NA and NC for the past few weeks. While it is understandable for BBS to ask standard questions, the candidates, I thought, should have better things to say than usual stuffs like repaying gratefulness to the King, Country and people. No one has ever said honestly that he wants to be called Dasho and enjoy the privileges and entitlements.

...the other thing.....it is about new Bhutanese paradox. Almost all candidates said that they know the problems their consituencies are facing. Hmmmmmm!! million things for all of us to grind on.

...it would be shameful for candidates to promise schools, BHUs and hospitals, clean drinking water, electricity or any other basic necessities. It should have been there even without being asked.

...finally, for the MP from my consituency...don't thank me or my people. Thank yourself that I didn't see you for so long. Were you ever there?

I have been following the interviews and stories closely for the past few weeks. These are my observations:
1. Our government and politicians boast of very high economic growth rate but I am surprised that no one has ever spoken of equally high inflation rate.Not even the oppositions.
2. Urban schools are cramped not only because children are more but also because most teachers seek for transfer to urban areas.
3. Where are the jobs for our children?
tshering has turned activist now. It is good if you stick to principle. Hows you and your son? did you come back to Torino after we left? I miss your jeda and laughter

I agree with all your observations. I think we should be very concerned about rising cost of living. Great throughts. Please continue to contibute and comment. I appreciate that.
Thank you PSN. You should also write your observations so that people know what we are expecting from them.
Hey Remaysi,

You should write the full version of the third paragraph, and explain to the MP why they should not worry about those things...
How is your Thimphu Story going?

Moment of Redemption

...During my university days, one of my professors told me the story of an eagle. It is said that the eagle lives for over 70 years.   But during its 40 th year, it has to make some hard decisions.   Its long and flexible talons can no longer grab its prey. Its long and sharp beak becomes bent. Its old, aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly. Then, the eagle is left with only two options: either to die or go through a painful process of change which lasts for over six months. The process requires that the eagle fly to a mountaintop and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out. Then the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back. Then it will pluck out its talons The talons are what an eagle uses to catch food. To pluck them out would not only be extremely difficult and painful, but would also take away their ability to provide food for themselves. When it's new
