It was long journey in those bumpy roads. It takes six hours from Tingtibi to reach my site office at Nimshong. Again it takes two hours to reach the actual work sites. It is tough and tiring even in vehicle in those far roads. Gewog road construction is going on for Shingkhar and Bardo gewog under Zhemgang dzongkhag. I went to sites for handing taking formalities to complete.
I was told to be careful with work since the area is politically sensitive. I don’t understand why. The only thing I know is that I am taking charge for the service of dear people. Road is necessary for the development to progress. I never expect people disagree and nurse a grievance.
It was inspiring to see labors, machine operators, site supervisors and Junior Engineer work hard to reach the road to destiny, gewog centers. The very tiring work to drill and blast those rocky terrains is dangerous. Despite their hard work they are not happy to hear those hard words of people’s disagreement. They get demoralized.
I plea, people Please come to a consensus. Let us construct and build for your own benefits. Work is getting delay day by day.
And for time pass I wrote the poem after listening to people how ZHemgang and Bumthang is connected. It would be great if I get time to reach Bumthang and Mongar from Shingkhar, Zhemgang by walk.
From Zhemgang Shingkhar to Bumthang Shingkhar,
For excursion that seem convivial forth,
Hoping best to explore beyond
It would be time passing great.
I shalt go~
