Democracy and the leaders, what can go wrong when power is vested in blind...

The already bad english with many messes in few lines can tell
how much the writer was mentally disturbed at that moment.
How much do we count on democracy? As much as we may expect, I fear so much of abuses. Do we make an effort to elect a leader and end up being targeted? Or do we make so much of effort in the name of tsawa-sum by voting a government to give its members the power rather than for their leadership?

People might be wondering why this is held without posting so far and why only today it is being brought forward. I didn’t think of the importance that has in making public until I realized that this has many to tell about our kinder democracy in growing and the votes we waste to put corruption to  power.

Today I take a chance to post this story having gained confidence from honorable PM’s facebook (31/01/2017) post that called to expose any corrupt practices. I would also like to remind the readers that this story does not at all imply the current government, which I am always proud of although it is a story of an action of a member of the government in his own personal capacity.

This is my testimonial experience of the democracy in power, a strong case that put me in dilemma whether to respect democracy or avoid. This is a small story how there is so many in the democracy we think is the best solution.

From Sumthrang to Bemji (Bonbi), Trakhar & Ugyenchoeling, a Genealogical Journey


  Sumthrang, I have now known that it has spread its kinship into many other religious nobilities in Bhutan. Every time I am in conversation with my father, any one we talked about as we engage into genealogical history, it ends up being one or the another our ‘Ngew’ or the relative.

Of many families that have a kinship relation to sumthrang, Bemji and Ugyenchoeling are among those families and Trakhar often comes up in relation to the family line of Terton Pama Lingpa. I heard of the relation we share several years ago but I never understood how?  I did not know much of Bonbi Chojey but I knew this much that it may have its own history of origin different to Sumthrang and Ugyen Choling we know is the decedents of Terton Dorji Lingpa. The question was then, how did these families inter-relate?

Here comes the Sun

Nyilo the Solstices: Some parts of Bhutan will celebrate winter solstice (guen nyilo) today, to mark Nyilo, the return of the sun.
Nyilo, according to the Bhutanese lunar calendar based on Buddhist astrology, is the first day of winter and the shortest day, after which the days start getting longer until the summer solstice.
“It’s celebrated as New Year, since this is the day when a new season begins,” lecturer for astrology with the Institute of Language and Culture Studies in Taktse, Trongsa, lopen Samten, said.

Democracy: Nation secondary to number?

Is democracy all about ignoring the reality and going by Number? Where will we reach if we just rode on number?

Democracy could have been a mode to reach a position to create a better country and serve a nation so that people can leave a legacy of their own.

But what do we see across the world and what do we experience in our own countries. It is really a democracy by the "people for the people."

Democracy  in my silly sense is found to be analogous to having said to be a monkey among monkeys and thieves among the thieves.

Because it is all about the number rather than rational reality and wholesome intend. One may not have a choice but to vote alongside the thieves in a constituency of thieves and be one of them in a democracy. Even if you vote the other way, one has to live by their rules under its domination.

Open Complain

Calling upon media and other authorities for a serious look into this  issue in deep....

Why was this drain, what was the reason?
Did it in any way harm any one to do this? 




It was a great news and a welcoming one as I read this story ‘Preserving social, spiritual and agricultural landscape,” in a kuensel issue this week. 

But what is reality in Ura under the very watchful eyes of Thrumsingla park manager is something different.

It is not the way you think, it is not the way of Buddhism

Gender discrimination if not Buddhism
When the Buddhist philosophers at some point describes male as the superior by birth and female as inferior, in current mindset it is wrongly taken in the lines of gender discrimination. 

I would like to argue that this does not at all relate to any thing near to the issue of gender discrimination. Buddhism is based on equal rights for all sentient beings. It does not discriminate. If it does, it distinguishes all that exist into four noble truths, so that it is clearer for any one who wishes a proper choice.   

It is therefore, when it talks about difference of birth hierarchy, it is a comparison of the doors of suffering that distinguishes which gender by birth is more susceptible to suffering.
