THIRTEEN DAYS IN SEPTEMBER

  Three leaders from Israel, Egypt and US with  three different religions, had marathon meeting  for  13 days at the presidential retreat at Camp David in the autumn of 1978  to solve a dispute that religion itself had caused.  The complex history of Middle East is based on  ancient texts and legends and necessarily draws the Middle East in a endless feud and brought the superpowers of the time to the brink of nuclear war, flooded the region with refugees and  created mayhem and heartbreak all over the world. Carter, Begin and Sadat, the three leaders from US, Israel and Egypt, through 13 days of ordeal and immense pressure, managed to forge a partial and incomplete peace. War seldom achieves what was expected or hoped for by its participants; even victory breeds a future defeat. The book tells the story of the compromise that peace demands, and of the courage and sacrifices required of leaders whose greatest challenge is to overcome their own limitations.  The book gave me new perspec

Whistleblower Policy

When one of the FCB staff told me that the management had called staff meeting asking them not to  write anything in bhutanliterature.blogspot.com, I had a mixed feeling of both sadness and happiness. I was sad because people would be left in darkness if the people no longer commented and the suppression of any unethical would be taken to new heights. The comments passed on by many staff in my blog updated staff and others across the world  about what was happening in FCB and how staff digested it. In absence of grievance redressal or whistleblower policy in FCB,  the erstwhile  FCB management was on wild elephant rampage, and as a result, the  staff had no choice but to vent their frustrations through my blog. They needed a channel to pass on the message to the management that not all things are tolerated and the world outside needed to know  that something was not going right in FCB. I think their messages, even if it was in its crudest form and language, have been delivered  and rem

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
I woke up yesterday morning as a criminal. Kuensel published the news story on how ACC has implicated me, my father and a friend of my father. Since the case is sub-judice, I won't have much to comment here but I surely would have lot to say when the legal battle is over maybe...a new book ...that would make lots of sense. Anyways, now I am saddling the camel to ride on long lonely desert....long legal battle. I hope the court will use their third eyes to uphold justice....By the ways, I just copied this picture from FCB facebook page. They were very efficient in posting this picture and deleting some of the comments I posted with picture.
