A future beyond work life….happy retirement

Former Finance Secretary, Dasho Lam Dorji had expressed the pain, anguish and challenges that a person faces upon retirement from work in his Kuensel article called, “ A Future of Retirement” sometimes in November 2018.

This really is a thinking matter…is there a pain, anguish, disappointment or challenges as Dasho says or is there another life after work? There is another life after retirement….there are about 2000 hours of life every year.  Many retirees fear that their retirement life would be dull, lonely and even miserable.

It no longer stands true today because the way we look at retirement is changing. Many people look forward to it. There is a retirement  revolution that is happening across the world and it is mainly psychological. People  today anticipate fruitful retirement because many of them actually plan earlier and earlier in their lives.

When we dig under someone's gloomy attitude towards retirement, we always find fear of uncertainty mainly because it was unplanned and put retirement out of their minds until the last minute.

Planning a retirement is not to extend life but to have fulfilling life at later stage and many who has planned retirement says that it is worthwhile. Planning for retirement is as important in life as planning for a career or an education. Many elderly people spend as much time in retirement as they did before they got into work.

We always ask our children, "What will you do when you grow up? I think we got to start asking many people, “ what will you do when you retire?”

A successful retirement plan is not just about financial needs. It takes into consideration psychological, social and spiritual needs. It should have goals.

Today,friendship revolves around work. When someone is no longer working, loneliness creep into an individual life. And loneliness is one of the biggest problem of growing old. That’s why having friends outside work, especially people with common interests helps, that’s why in many countries one of the advises many people nearing retirement are advised to find new interests that will bring new friends. This is something a person should start developing many years before retirement.  Otherwise our mind will decline if there is nothing to keep it alert. Many elderly people possess the accumulated knowledge, sense of perspective and wisdom. There are many things where time is more valuable than the money. This is where the elderly can contribute.

Retirement to many comes as a bigger shake, especially to people who have remained an  executive or at higher  management level than to a blue collared, skilled or at clerical level worker. Executives loses importance when he retires from work  and this disorients many executives who worked in office whole life and suddenly he becomes one of the many common citizens.

It feels good to see that RCSC has recognized their responsibility  and have started  offering   pre-retirement talks  to retiring civil servants  dealing with the psychological, social and financial preparations for retired life. I hope such initiatives would be extended to corporate and  private employees  and also to the  members of the armed forces  by their respective  organizations, which I feel, will prepare them to face retirement with confidence.

Maybe later in the court this useful la. I am sure the present fcb ceo will understand that there were many illegal business karma nidyp do wen he was ceo and he not taking any legal action show he not a efficient ceo. just only good at heart but not good manager. so he is useless.

  6. in the court, documents will do talking. so who has the documents? the author. How did author get the documents? author get from staff. why did staff give the documents to author? because karma nidup sided with corrupted people like sangay wangdi, pema wangcuk and remove hard working people like singay dukpa and others.

    3. once very powerful man, now if come back, he is cut to shape. coming from third class college in shillong, he sneaked into position of importance. his education qualification and lifestyle teach him to corruption so he is nothing but a snake which put life of many people into danger

  9. FCB is a company which is more than 40 years. It has neither good process, good system, good management nor a good business prospect. The company is plagued by cancer and without a management which will turn around the business, the company is heading for government bailout. Having friendly and nice management is different from a business oriented management which has business strategy. Time for FCB management to look at possibility of implementing supply chain management system so that the company can be meaningful to the citizens and not a burden to the society as it is now. Currently, the private companies are doing better than FCB which has such a huge market base and infrastructure.

    1. By this time FCB should have been the lead company in the country in trading business. Instead, its slowly dying. The CEOs who come to FCB are civil servants who have failed to qualify for Director position in the Government. These people come and try their luck in companies. They do not have business idea. What they have is bureaucratic mind which cripples business ideas. They are so used to being licked and buttered in Government that they enjoy being done in corporation also. Karma Nidup was such a man. He was not fit even to run a pan shop and forget about running a company. He enjoyed buttering up and being buttered. He was so drunk with power he had that he forgot he will not remain CEO forever.
      Today, even after he has left the company, the damage he has done to the company is beyond measure. This proves that the leadership quality makes or breaks the company. Hope the new CEO will heal the company.

    2. what business idea will that guy have. he only had idea to steal salary, discretionary allowance, PSA and go for training with his bootlickers. he didn't even know how system worked and also didn't know how to read account statement but he never accepted he didn't know. instead, he will try to prove that he knew everything. even after he is found guilty by the court, his ego will not allow him to accept his mistake. he was one hell of fucking guy and thats why he not getting job in any government company.

    3. interesting thing to see was, the fcb documents were being presented by Champay's lawyer and not a single valid document came from fcb side in the court.there only was opinion and hearsay from fcb side while champay;s legal was presenting original signed documents. what a contrast mo la

      Delete
    4. There are some things which are quite disturbing in FCB la.
      1. On what basis Tshering Dorji, Yogen and Dawa Tshering get PSA. They are neither experts nor they are GMs/RMs. If they are eligible for benefits, all the Depot Incharges and Auction Yard managers are more eligible for benefit. All other staff are morally affected because the current CEO is not correcting the past CEO's mistakes. The company is paying someone who do not deserve.
      2. FCB system is hacked and that everyone knows. The people who are involved in manipulating the system are still there. They should be removed for the safety of other staff.
      3. The internal control system is very weak in FCB. That may be the reason why there is a regular shortage in FCB. It is time to rotate the internal auditors and put new one in place.
      4. Regional Managers in Gelephu and Samdrup Jongkhar are always on tour but the contribution they have made to FCB sales is very minimal and the number of shortage under these two RMs are regular.

    5. did karma nidup die? or is he still alive and hiding in shame. he has no shame actually. he had no shame in stealing money from fcb so he won't have shame in going around companies seeking job.but good that at least he is not getting work in any government companies. the owner of private companies can be the one who can fix people like him

  11. It takes time but truth will always come out in the end. It is human tendency to cheat and try to bury things up.Truth will come out anyways. Actually, IT people knows who ordered them to remove data from the backend. If they have not taken any favour from the guy who ordered them to remove data, they would have already told truth by now.

  12. this blog has done good job by giving information to all people who do not have idea about FCB management. Karma Nidup not getting any job in government companies because of this blog. otherwise, he can sell anyone with his lies. he went to NRDCL for interview few years ago and lied to the interview panel that he cleaned corruption in FCB. In actuality, he was the one who perpetuated corruption in FCB. One thing is to become CEO and another thing is for aspiring CEO to tell lies to people at the highest level. maybe thats the reason why FCB never got out of mess.

    1. I think people refer to this blog for information on FCB more than website of FCB . I get all the inside information here. FCB staff prefer reading and writing here.

    2. if regional managers are changed , maybe fcb can make profit and pay bonus to staff

      Delete
    3. actually there is profit in fcb business if done well. if a pan shop can run very well in remote place, why not fcb. the regional managers are only interested in something else and not in business. for example, what is ugyen chedup doing about business? already shortages from trongsa, bumthang and dagapela reported and he is still there. this show the capability of a person . there was no check and balance. the same case for pema wangchuk . wherever he is, he will only make problem. when he was in FECD, he created

  18. I think the current CEO has to know the following:

    i. The ex-CEO and ex-SFO were involved in increasing ex-ceo's salary without authorization of the government. The ex-ceo was also drawing PSA of 18,000 which he was not eligible for over 3 years. The PSA in FCB is highest in the country compared to all companies and if these PSA are recovered, will put FCB at break-even at least and loss can be recovered set zhuni bey een la.

  19. check this. pema wangcuk always on tour but no business improvement. he is not paying 594,000 yet for the rice he stole. if it is recovered, fcb will have less loss

    1. i think it is cos of karma nidup's salary and allowance manipulations. i heard ACC is already investigating it. they should have been put behind bar long time ago.

    2. stay in power as ceo for 6 years only to be removed with disgrace and hatred by staff and public.just as people are forgetting him, investigation gets started. i think that guy will pay very badly for his sins

      Delete
    3. so his long honey moon is going to be over soon mo?

      Delete
  21. my take

    a mid level govt employee with limited salary and power is made ceo of a company and given benefits like higher salary and power. then the devil and greed takes over such people and do whatever they like till they are around and then one day, he finds himself out in the open, everyone spitting and cursing his name. i am sure he is a great family man but in a society today, people consider him as an outcast. he got influenced by criminally minded people like sangay wangdi and people like kezang sfo did not advise him on finance matters and his greed got better of him. now that the case has been lodged with acc on manipulation of salary and allowances, i think he will be isolated soon through investigation and court hearing and sentencing.

    1. actually he not very bad. only problem his ego, pride and greed make blind. now everyone curse and spit his name and wherever he go, people know he corrupted.

      if he listen to singay dukpa and others, maybe he still in fcb and no shortage case also. but he listen to thief sangay wangdi who teach him tell lie and steal and he expose to risk.

      Delete
    2. karma nidup no longer interesting subject. he is like stale food. if talk about him, people become sick hearing his name only. now its time talk about mental vitamin. mental vitamin is salary revision. when happen for FCB. i hope this time, govt dont take back and make pay us again hahahaha what a joke it was and people were very angry mo la

      my work sell joktang la only. if give salary revision very happy. if no give also i no place to complain. only feel jealous of civil servant la
