Graduation Day

One time in my life my option was to become a teacher. That was either to study in Samtse or Paro College of Education. It was nobody’s influence. But my own genuine call of heart. That was when I was in my middle secondary school.

I studied hard.

With very good marks I got to opt for science as my major in higher secondary studies. There were three options again. Either I am to opt for Biology or Mathematics. Or else study both as Bio-maths. I was in dilemma for few months whether to leave Biology or take both. Yet finally my decision was bold. I major my studies in Mathematics.

More hard work I had put in.

I have my own reason for the hard work. I am a son of farmer. The suffering of my father and stature of have-nots of my parents impel me to study hard. With unexpected result in twelfth standard, I was qualified for professional studies outside my country.

Hard work alone doesn’t count all the time. For poor boy like me after my class twelve, there was no one to help me. When my friends went for selection interview for professional courses I was left behind.

I can’t forget the moment in my life. It was 6th March 2008, the day of selection interview for various professional courses. That time I was doing temporary job in Kuensel store. It was heavy job shifting heavy bulks of paper.  I saw my friends waiting for other friends near Thimphu Chorten. They were going for the interview. They saw me passing down the footpath with my lunch box. I was totally sad at that moment and I couldn’t wish them good luck nor could I look at them. Same feeling was felt on them too. They were helpless. I cried for the first time as grown-up boy.

It was a moment of real sadness in my life.

Within a year after serving as Assistant Chemist in private organization, I got an equivalent opportunity to study again. I got admitted in College of Science and Technology with major in Civil Engineering. I studied hard and now it is time for me to leave this wonderful college.

As I fold my arms today I feel proud to be ONE!
Today as I complete my training and fold my arms I feel proud to be ONE. I dedicate the moment and degree to my great father who is happy with the news. I miss you dad. See you soon back home.

Tomorrow is my graduation day.
