A grandma's point of view

I lived here for decades and I would never imagine living away from the place where I was born. Living in the village is like living in a higher realm than in chaotic towns. I am a mother of nine children and all of them prefer living in towns. 


One would expect children to be at the service of parents at their old age. In my case, not even one of the nine children lives in the village with me. Some of them live in Zhung (referred to as the capital city of Bhutan, Thimphu), and the rest in Ja (abroad). It is even harder for me to believe the situation than any other person. Nevertheless, I am breathing the air of calmness in my village. It is very sad to observe the reducing number of neighbors, houses being locked, and fields left to become forests.


The younger generations are interested in accessing modern facilities which they believe to be getting in the urban places. They completely forget that the basic needs of humans, starting from organic food to free shelters are abundantly present in villages. Sometimes, I get myself lost in thinking about, who would live here in the future? Would the human race be extinct after the day I pass away?

Voices of people in policymaking ?

Not a random thought but I think about it quite frequently. Article 22 of the Constitution states that " Power and authority shall be decentralized and devolved to elected local governments to facilitate the direct participation of the people in the development and management of their own social, economic and environmental well-being”. But how??? 


Am I only the one or there are many people (especially youths) not aware of the platforms for direct participation in policymaking? How the voices of people are heard by the policymakers?

Investiture Ceremony of Student Leaders

 It is a huge honour being amongst the twenty student leaders for the academic years 2021 and 2022.   A formal investiture and oath-taking ceremony for student leaders took place today coinciding with 1st September, on an auspicious day. 

Of many invaluable words from the President, he highlighted that "student leaders are important for the student body of the college,  just like an umbilical cord to the fetus in the womb". 

Looking forward to working together towards the well-being of everyone.

THE TIME WE LIVE IN

Many physicists, astronomers, and scientists, in general, put immense effort into studying the beginning of this universe. Out of many theories, the Big-Bang theory became the most accepted theory by everyone. About 13.8 billion years ago, this universe was born with the BIG-BANG. By the way, this article is not about how the universe started with the BIG-BANG. It is about 13.8 years after the BIG-BANG, the present days. 


The twenty-first century is synonymously called the digital era. People born during the digital age are called digital natives. Most importantly, one should realize that it is the time of information explosion. The information explosion is the rapid increase in the amount of published information or data and the effects of this abundance. Each and everyone is responsible for filtering the best ones of the abundantly available information. Consuming the required knowledge will make one move forward with time. 


"The continued focus on textbooks and content without integrating technology and social learning risks perpetuating passive modes of learning. Then, whatever education our children acquire today will become irrelevant and obsolete when they graduate." stated His Majesty the King of Bhutan in Royal Edict on Education Reform. In line with these invaluable words of His Majesty, it is the responsibility of both teachers and students to stay updated with information and be competent individuals.


If one does not move forward, then the person is moving backward. But, to move forward, what are the knowledge and skills required? Blockchain, artificial intelligence, automation, and ........ 

Please list the knowledge and skills required in the digital age in the comment section.

Changala the elder brother of Chudrula expires

It is sad to know that Changala, the elder brother of Chudrula expired. We would no more see the brothers together, loving and caring for each other. 

Whenever I visited Bumthang, seeing them, used to bring me a smile. I have never seen them walking without one being by the side of another. They were the epitome of brotherhood. 

Deepest condolences to Chudrula.

May Changala find a better path for being the faithful brother and angelic human. 

Om Mani Padme Hum!

5000 Subscribers on my YouTube Channel

My YouTube channel Mr Nidu crossed 5000 subscribers. Thank you for the love and supports that everyone has rendered in my content-creating journey. At this time, I am a learner and do not even fall in the category of content creators. However, with every passing day, I am learning to become the best version of myself in this particular field. 

To me, getting 5000 subscribers is a big achievement. However, I also can't hide the fact that I struggled to reach this level. Thank you, everyone, once again!
