Relating physics with everyday life: The Echo

No cliff echoes without a source of the sound. With required conditions, all cliffs echoes. This simple phenomenon has many functions that may extend beyond one's knowledge. The strength of the sound source is the weakness of the cliff and the weakness of the sound source is the strength of the cliff. 


The sound source has its own ability to produce sounds but a cliff cannot produce sounds of its own. Though a cliff is disabled of producing sounds of its own, it never fails to throw back the echo. If both the sound source and cliff are personified, one can learn a valuable lesson. 


At times, in one's life, another person would always try to blame for any kind of deteriorating factors in relationships (family, friends, workmates, etc) and take the credits for strengthening the same. When one's ego wins, he/she would start to say that another person is; not calling, not texting in social media, not giving regards, and so on. 'He/she did not talk or greet me first, so I too ignored him/her', is what we hear from egoistic individuals. 


In life, one should not always expect others to be the one to approach first to; call, greet, respect, and so on. If one tries to appear first like the sound source, others would always react and respond like the echo from the cliff.


We humans unintentionally or intentionally tend to expect many things from others. If such expectations appear in one's mind, try doing the same expected actions to others.

First E365 champion from Bhutan: The prestigious recognition by the President of SFI.

Strong Future International (SFI) is the number one digital marketing platform with members from all the countries across the globe. There are approximately two thousand members from our country Bhutan at the moment. I became a fully convinced member of SFI on 6th January 2019. I mentioned 'fully convinced member' because in 2018 a friend of mine ( Karma Dorji ) told me about it to me. However, I was not really convinced and quitted it. After six months, I met with my upline from Serbia on Facebook. He is Mr. Bratislav Misic, who is not only an expert in SFI but also an approachable and friendly man. He helped me to understand the SFI platform. Then, I registered for a new account with his guidance. 

As a student, I kept my studies on track but also dedicated my free time to SFI as my passion. After eleven long months, I earned quite an appreciable amount of money and also got the Payoneer Mastercard for International payment. Exactly after one year from the day I joined, I was announced as the E365 Entrepreneur Challenge Champion.

Members who are named the E365 Champion of their class receive special corporate recognition, income-boosting CSAs every month from the CSA Rewards program, their name and photo on the E365 "hall of fame" Website, bragging rights, special recognition at the SFI Forum, and a HANDSOME  PLAQUE for their office wall to commemorate their achievement. 

I became E365 Champion not only because of my consistent hard work but it is because of the constant support and guidance of my sponsor Mr. Bratislav Misic. I would like to thank him and other supportive uplines for being so supportive.


It's not about being money minded but looking for new opportunities. Yes, I earn an appreciable amount, so you can. Join the lovely digital marketing platform to earn now. Click here to register FREE with SFI.

Sanitary Pads out of stock? No worries: CheChay Sanitary Pad is here.

I went to a few shops and asked for a sanitary pad but, all said it is out of stock. I smiled and informed them about Chechey Sanitary Pads. They were thanking me for telling them about the most affordable pads they never heard before. Are you in the category who is not aware of the same? If so, Chechay Sanitary Pads provide the most comfortable and affordable pads for our women. Chechay Sanitary Pads is a social enterprise in Bhutan founded by a young entrepreneur Ms. Pema Chozom this year, 2020. 

The pandemic forced us to close the international gates and restrict the imported stuff with no exception for the most needed thing, sanitary pads. However, for our mothers, sisters, wives, and lady friends, the menstrual cycles continue amidst the pandemic. 

If you are a shop owner and got pads out of stock, Chechey Sanitary Pads, deliver pads to your location. Get your orders now to help our ladies maintain menstrual hygiene. For more information, check it on their website and official Facebook Page.

Kharang and Rice : My mom's creativity.

 A friend of mine was sharing about the funny incidences of his pre-primary days. That made me remember my childhood days of years back. Recollecting all those ain't so good enough because it was dominated by bitter things. However, the beautiful part is to remember how my mom used to combat the harsh reality. 

One thing I vividly remember is; cooking of Kharang and Rice in a single crucible (pot) without mixing. I do not really get a clue today, why we felt shy to have Kharang in front of others and proud while having rice? I assume that it may be because of the availability of Kharang in the locality and it was tough in those days to get rice (at my village people grow maize as the main food crop). Though both Kharang and rice serve to fill up our bellies, as a kid it was really a weird thing to have Local Kharang in a lunch box. 

Beautifully my mom used to wash rice before Kharang and put it in the oven in a pot. After a while, she adds Kharang in the same crucible but won't stir it to prevent it from mixing. After cooking, we used to have the upper layer (Kharang) for breakfast and pack the lower layer (rice) in my lunch box. This is just a small portion to describe the greatness of my mother. 


Thank you ama for your sacrifices. Love you so much. Be Healthy and long live dear ama.

The story behind collecting electronic wastes, especially used cartridges and tonners.

 I get positive comments and complimentary personal messages, whenever I post about electronic wastes collection. However, I feel that it is not fair if I do not tell the story of how I started with this project and what I get out of it.

I was fortunate to be selected as one of the members of the sixth cohort of YI (Youth Initiative), a program of Bhutan Centre of Media and Democracy. Once, Mr. Leki Dawa,   the CEO of Bhutan Alternatives was invited as a guest speaker to share his life story. That was the first time I saw him and knew about his enterprise. I was really touched by his life story before he became a social entrepreneur. 

After the first phase of YI, I called him and told him that I wanted to visit his office. He was openly welcoming me to visit there and told me the location with some reference point (one of the ministry offices). However, I was not really sure about that reference point in those days. I used google map to locate the office but it was not really reliable. I changed three taxis to reach his office. After getting into the office, I was really impressed and inspired to see how the wasted (used) cartridges were being refurbished. Moreover, he had employed many youths there. 


Amidst our conversation, I found some similarities between how the two of us were brought up. I then asked him, if he could employ me during vacations to collect those electronic wastes ( especially used cartridges). He promptly agreed and told me that I was the first person (from youth) to approach him in that way. He also added that till that day they collected wastes for free from several Dzongkhags. 


After a few minutes, I changed my decision to take that collaboration as one of the projects of our youth team (Kuenphen Youth). That way I thought it would even help my friends ( Kuenphen Youth members) and keep a certain percentage of earnings as a fund of our Youth Organization. I shared that to him and he also agreed to let our team collaborate with Bhutan Alternatives. We signed an agreement of collaboration and agreement of price for wastes items. 

To date, we (Kuenphen Youth) covered four Dzongkhags (Mongar, Samtse, Tashigang, and Chukha) to collect the electronic wastes, especially during vacations. We are satisfied with this project for we can earn as well as render our hands in waste management in a small way. Moreover, we are keeping 20% of earnings as a fund of our team. 


Personally, I am happy that my approach became an opportunity for my friends to earn with me ( provided they are interested). In a way, I just want to convey and clarify to everyone that we are not doing it for free. If people think that we are doing this for free, it is not at all fair for Bhutan Alternatives. So it is all because of Bhutan Alternatives that we were able to pick up and sustain with this project.


While we go for collection from government offices and some private sectors, most of the people tell us that they already dumped or burned those used cartridges (and other electronic waste items). We are late for dumped ones but it is better to be late than not doing at all. We are gaining momentum with this project and hope to cover more districts.

I personally as a founder of Kuenphen Youth, would like to thank all individuals who helped us to bring the status of our project to this extend.
