I want to thank Tashi Gyelmo for nominating me back for the Liebster Blog Award and a big thank you again for the wonderful new questions that you have framed for the bloggers. I wear beatific smile though my answers may define otherwise. Thank you Tashi.
What is the motive behind your blogging? Or I would rephrase my question in this way, what do you actually intend to convey to the world through your blog posts?
Just randomly as is my thought, I started blogging when I was in first year. By the time I penned down my rationale behind playing with words, I was into the pool of the blogging world. Sometimes back in 2012 I have written a post titled Why I Write. Let me share few lines from the article. ”I began blogging three years ago while I was in first year. The purpose was not defined. After a year of blogging I realize the rationale of my amateur interest. I write for the purpose. I have something to say. I have something to say to someone. I have some purpose for saying it. Information is constantly available – from other people, television, radio, newspapers, books, world wide web and many other sources and why not from my blog?”
What do you aspire yourself to be within the next five years?
Hehehe… every time when I was ask this particular question I just smile. When I was a little school boy I just dream to be a simple school teacher. Just that was my genuine ambition. When I was in high school I dreamt to be doctor. Ironically I dropped Biology and studied mathematics. Then I struggled to be civil engineer. Yes, my hard work in 12th standard rewarded me with good marks. It was a joy that awake me whole night a day after result was declared. Soon I will be done with my training. I expressed my interest in teaching to the college and I am now frequently reminded to come back as faculty. I nod with smile and say yes. But I am not sure whether to continue with my genuine ambition to be academician or otherwise, civil engineer. I am waiting for the time indeed! Hehe…
In general, how do you view at your life? You may jot a few sentences on your attitude or perception about life.
For me life is being simple and helping as much I can to anyone that’ll relate to me. I am human for I am related to all people and they are to me as well.
Someone said, your attitude define your altitude. Hope it is true but not universal. For some, altitude is their attitude. Once they are raised to certain height they forgot some human instincts. Anyways in all way round people with good attitude act well, fit well in society and they are being loved.
Something that is hidden behind everyone is their attitude – values, standards, judgments, motives, and ethics and believes. These will have impact on their behavior which is known to others in the form of knowledge and skills. So whether is if the glass is half-full or half-empty, depends on the attitude of the person looking at it.
Bhutan is regarded as the land of Gross National Happiness. How far does the philosophy comply with the real lives the Bhutanese people lead and what is your perception on this concept?
It is the greatest philosophy that I have ever read and known. Yes, I am proud to be the citizen of beautiful mountainous happy Bhutan, the birthplace of GNH. Every value in every steps of our movement is taken care under the four pillars, nine domains and 33 indicators. The nation has felt the need of the value that is universal and aspiration of its people. The development paradigm gears with the philosophy.
It is human values at individual level. Those human values are taken care under cultural domain. It gives importance to ethics and morality. With those values we can excel as single person, move as family and develop as nation or society. It is good that Royal University of Bhutan has now started with human values classes for all the colleges under its umbrella. Yes I am fortunate to attend those classes and learn to have right understanding to be good human.
