Induction session for National Executive Members : G17 UAC Bhutan

The induction session for the National Executive Members, G17 UAC Bhutan, shall be remembered as another remarkable event of my life. The introduction to 'The Roads to Rights' was an extraordinary story of an eight-year boy thinking about bringing changes in the community. Meeting, & getting to know other National Executive Members was exciting. Above all, listening to the founder, Mr. Ashan Perera's speech was the most amazing moment. 

Virtual, yet it was a well-organized session coordinated by Ms.Yeshi, vice-chairperson G17 UAC Bhutan, bringing alike minded individuals together, striving to actualize the global goals, 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The joy of getting a free meal

I am surrounded by loving people that many people could just dream of. A meal becomes more enjoyable when we have it with the loved ones. It tastes even better when they pay for it. Lol 😆

Thanks, Dorji.

This signboard should be removed or changed

I am sorry if I sound unappreciative, but I think this signboard should be removed or changed. I was wondering, what if an illiterate group of pilgrims happens to pass by? Won't this be mistaken for drubchu (holy-water)? This is a possibility that can not be denied as the entire population of our country is not literate. 😬

Found this on the way to Taktshang.

*small things matter*

A trip to Taktshang (tiger lair)

This was the most awaited & exalted trip to Taktshang (tiger lair) with friends. Writing the entire history or legend of Taktshang by an ordinary person like me would just lead to distortion of the precious story. I have read through a few articles online, & listened to the verbal narrations. 



Of the slightest deviations in the legend shared on different papers, & narrated by different persons, a source says that the name Taktshang (tiger lair) was derived after the incident of Guru Rinpochoe in the form of Guru Dorji Drolo (riding on a tigress) flew from Singye Dzong to the cliff where Taktshang is situated now. 



As a first-time visitor, I found myself admiring, & appreciating the extraordinary architecture glued on the endless cliff. The blessings were more than wished to have gotten a chance to pray in front of the Guru Suungjoen statue, & many other sacred sites for the well-being of the sentient beings.

Welcoming the new year 2022 with the roomies.

 The three of have been living under the same ceiling for three years in the college (Samtse College of Education). We just have a semester more to mature and create memories together. 

For the first time in three years, we got to be together on the first day of the new year (1/1/22) while we wait for the De-Suung training. Otherwise, we would have gone home for the winter vacation. As we welcome the new year and mark Nyilo, we made our day out to hoist wind horse prayer flags (Luung Dhar). 

To the world, we wish for happiness, peace, freedom, and all the positivity for the new year. Happy New Year 2022.

Just to look back some days

How the days are spent counts more than the number of days that pass by. What could be paralleled to the time well spent with the pals? 

As we age, our memory may fade. So, I am keeping a written memory of us, dear brothers.

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.

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!

The journey of my life: Connecting the dots of memories

Chapter 1

This very moment, I just feel like jotting down my life story from the farthest length of my memory. People are born different in many ways. The differences start from the physical appearance to living standards, spiritual beliefs, and so on. Everybody has their share of good times and darker parts of time. I have my own story and that is what makes me, myself. 

The farthest, that my memory can travel is the day when my mom stopped breastfeeding me. Not very vivid but I remember when my mom was caught with jaundice. The milk I enjoyed turned yellow from the normal color. I stopped begging my mom for milk thereafter. I think I was about three years old then. 


There is a time gap in my memory after the aforementioned farthest memory. The next thing I can remember is guarding crops against animals, especially against monkeys. That memory could be from the time when I was four to five years old. I was enrolled in school when I was five and a half years old in 2005. That particular memory preceded the time when I was enrolled in school. 


The village of Binangri, (Mongar, Drepong) in a medium-sized traditional house with a wood-shingle roof, was where my family lived. It was quite a big family which consisted of my mom, my elder brother, my aunt (mom's elder sister), her four daughters (first cousins), and myself. A total of six children were led by two mothers. Neither me and brother nor the cousins were lucky to have a father in the family. No, I was not bothered at all to not have a father because I had not seen him at all. I won't even think of asking my mom. 

Stay tuned for the second chapter...

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.

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.
