We can FIX it together : YouTube Partnership Program in Bhutan

Let's keep the topic hot.  Recently I have been highlighting some issues about AdSense revenue, YouTube Partnership Program, blogging, and some other related topics aligning with the Bhutanese context. 


I am sharing the screenshots of my conversation with google support below. When I asked for the reason behind the limitations of the YouTube Partnership Program in some countries, I was told that there is no documented reason as such. 

I was advised to give feedback from the YouTube studio about the issue to get reviewed by their engineers. 

If I am only the one to give feedback, there is very little chance of bringing the change. Therefore; I urge everyone to collaborate with me to give feedback: mentioning the need for YouTube Partnership Program in Bhutan (or all the countries)

Which local bank in Bhutan can connect with AdSense?

In my previous article, I shared the limitations of AdSense in Bhutan and hopes to fix the same. I also shared that there is a handful of Bhutanese getting paid with AdSense. Are you a Bhutanese who got your site or YouTube channel monetized recently? Or are you planning to do it soon? Do you wonder how someone completes the payouts from AdSense generated from a blog or YouTube channel in Bhutan? Well, let me answer this question briefly. I decided to write this blog for I got a comment on my YouTube video asking for it. 


Well, all the local banks in Bhutan (Bank of Bhutan, Bhutan National Bank, Bhutan Development Bank, and Tashi Bank ) can be integrated with the AdSense account. There is no need for international credit or debit cards. You just need a savings account registered with one of the banks. As far as I am concerned, all of the aforementioned banks accept wire transferring of money from other countries. One can receive the amount earned from the blog, YouTube channel, and any other platforms connected with AdSense by wire transfer method. 


Once you reach the payout threshold of AdSense (currently $100), they will ask for payout details. All you need to do is submit few required credentials; SWIFT CODE of the bank, and account number, and physical address. 

So, there is NO problem in getting paid from AdSense in Bhutan. 


Share and reach out to more Bhutanese!

AdSense revenue in Bhutan: Bloggers and YouTubers

Google AdSense is a program controlled by google to show advertisements on the written content or video content targeted to the audiences. Fractions of money invested by advertisers are paid to content creators (bloggers or YouTubers ). Content creating job pays more than most other jobs but not in Bhutan. 

To generate AdSense revenue from YouTube, one has to comply with both the policies of YouTube and AdSense. Google AdSense does not restrict Bhutanese to monetize with advertisements. However, the YouTube policy restricts Bhutan (and few other countries) from YouTube Partnership Program. 


Chablop Passu, a renowned blogger from Bhutan, recently highlighted the challenge faced by aspiring YouTubers of Bhutan in his blog, 'Passu Diary'.  "How odd is it that some ignorant tech guys had deprived us of our sovereignty for a long time? Sometimes, I doubt their intentions. How could a big tech company not know that Bhutan is a sovereign country?" he questioned in his article titled ' Digital Sovereignty of Bhutan'. He concluded with his suggestion and opinion to fix the issue. Find the full article on his blog. 


Only a handful of Bhutanese makes money from YouTube by borrowing locations. For example, PindaPanda (Pinda Rika Dorji) a gamer and content creator is Bhutanese residing in Malaysia. Few others are residing in Bhutan but changing the locations to apply for YouTube Partnership Program. 


It is sometimes frustrating but has no option at the individual level. Have to accept with big hope for fixing the issue soon. Meanwhile, more Bhutanese should work harder to learn content creation. What if YouTube accepts Bhutan for their Partnership Program next year or a few years from now? The content-creating skills will be so useful at that time. Social capital gained now will be more useful. 


The GOOD NEWS is, Bhutanese can earn via AdSense from blog sites. One can monetize blog sites from blogger.com, WordPress, google sites, and so on. Some of the monetized blog sites from Bhutan are; Passu Diary, Pelden's Diary, loteyom.com, and this blog as well. So, we still have a way to generate revenue with AdSense. 


Let us hope for fixing things and solving most of the unemployment problems in our country by content creating jobs.

Gifted 500 Sanitary Pads : Menstrual Hygiene Day 2021

28th May is marked as menstrual hygiene day, every year. It is a day to value the natural process of women and girls of reproductive ages. The theme for menstrual hygiene day this year is “Action and Investment in Menstrual Hygiene and Health”. Aligning with the theme, I am investing a small amount to gift a sum of 500 sanitary pads to school girls of two schools, Dechentsemo Higher Secondary School and Yadi Central School, in Mongar  (250 sanitary pads for each school)


The pads that I am gifting are made in Bhutan and known by the name Chechay Sanitary PAD. Cheechay Sanitary Pad manufacturing firm is the first of its kind in our country founded by Mrs. Pema Chozom, last year, in 2020. 

During the vacations, I helped the company in marketing their products for free. Lately, as a token of gratitude, they decided to pay me a certain amount for marketing their products. So, with much love and pleasure, I am investing the money for social causes like today. 

 

I hope this small action and investment inspires everyone for making menstrual hygiene a priority. 

Once again a very happy international menstrual hygiene day

What is bitcoin ?

 Most people do not accept the fact that cryptocurrency is the future of money. Let me break down the concept of cryptocurrency simply in my own words. 

Firstly, what is money? In ancient times, trading started with the so-called barter system. People exchanged one good for another. Later, coins came into existence followed by paper money. 


Economists define money as anything commonly accepted by people for the exchange of goods and services. Although every country has its system of coins and paper money, other things can also often be used as money. YES, cryptocurrency too. 


Cryptocurrency is digital money traded through blockchain. Bitcoin is the first of its kind introduced by a group of people by using the name Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. It is the same as the transformation of coins to paper money with time.

Understanding Digital Footprint

If you search for a particular topic like 'recipe for Bhutanese dishes', on the internet and social media platforms, the next time you visit the platform, related videos for Bhutanese dishes will be recommended. Have you ever thought about how this happens? DIGITAL FOOTPRINT is the answer.

A digital footprint is a trail of information that we leave behind when we use digital technology. Information such as IP address, location, type of device, email, credit cards, and many more are unintentionally or intentionally left behind. Third parties (like card issuers, advertisers, and law enforcement) can get access to these data to piece together our identity, and use them in some way.

Digital footprint has both pros and cons. Comment on the pros and cons below!

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...

Zhabdrung Kuchoe : remembering the FOUNDER

Marked on the 10th day of the 3rd month on the lunar calendar, every year, Zhabdrung Kuchoe (the death anniversary of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal ) is one of the most important days for Bhutanese. 

On arrival to Bhutan from Tibet in 1616, Zhabdrung unified the regions of the country together and named 'Druk'. Thus, he is referred to as the founder of Druk, Bhutan. In 1651, he passed away. To pay homage and respect to the FOUNDER, Bhutanese mark the day of Zhabdrung Kuchoe every year.

Majesty The King began a Royal Tour of the east, arriving in Mongar yesterday accompanied by Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen and Their Royal Highnesses Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel and Gyalsey Ugyen Wangchuck.

Majesty The King began a Royal Tour of the east, arriving in Mongar yesterday accompanied by Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen and Their Royal Highnesses Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel and Gyalsey Ugyen Wangchuck. 


This morning, the first COVID-19 vaccination in Mongar Dzongkhag was administered in the presence of His Majesty The King, at Mongar Dzong. In accordance with the astrological recommendations to start inoculations with a 30-year old woman born in the monkey year, Karma Pema Wangmo became the first person to receive the vaccine in the Dzongkhag. 


His Majesty also visited Mongar High School, which is one of the several vaccination centers in the dzongkhag, and met with those administering and receiving the vaccination.


His Majesty said to those gathered that while the vaccine will be beneficial in protecting us during the pandemic, we need to continue to follow safety protocols diligently as a portion of the population, including children and pregnant or breastfeeding women, remain unvaccinated.




His Majesty The King will be in the east for the duration of the nationwide vaccination program. 


As the people of Bhutan pray for the success of the vaccination campaign during this important time, the Royal Visit is doubly significant for being His Royal Highness Gyalsey Ugyen Wangchuck’s first visit to the east.

Lam Drukpa Kuenley in Punakha : Chimi Lhakhang and Toep Chandhana Lhakhang

Chimi Lhakhang in Punakha in the pale light of a summer evening is a thing of otherworldly beauty.  Along the quiet turquoise-green Punatsangchhu, past the roiling Toebi Rongchhu, there are nyes (sacred religious sites).  Alas, nature has reclaimed these sites entirely.


Figure 1: Chimi Lhakhang 

A yogi, scantily clad and heavily bearded, closed his eyes and shot a random arrow from Yamdrok in Tibet to see where it would land.  And there he would go, wherever his shaft lands, straying along to find his destiny.


But then, there were women and wine of the finest quality to be relished non-stop.  The highly realized and celebrated saint, born of the noble Gya clan, who had long parted with a sense of shame and puerility of the age, put off the plan to go after his wayward arrow for a while, and went to bed.


Imprints of fish on the rock

That was some 500 years ago from today.

As the morning sun rose from behind the snow-clad mountains, yellow as the tint of pure gold, the yogi jumped out of the bed and disappeared.  From Phari in Tibet to Paro in Bhutan, he walked, looking for the arrow.


In Toep Chandhana in Punakha, Bumo Pelzang Buthri, on whose doorstep the Yogi’s wayward arrow landed, there was an unusual commotion, a hue, and a cry.  By then, Lama Drukpa Kunley had arrived at Paro, looking for the arrow he let loose from Yamdrok, subduing bloodthirsty fiends and man-eating demons along the way.


Figure 2: Toep Chandhana Lhakhang 

It was a bright day when he arrived at Bumo Pelzang Buthri’s at Toep Chandana.  He took out his massive member and peed on the wall.  The hugeness of his fire-spitting wisdom thunderbolt had the children stunned with utter shock.


And then the yogi gazed up and made to the upper chamber of the house.  The mark that his arrow had left on the wooden stairs to the third floor was wide and fresh.  Once inside, he caught hold of Bumo Pelzang Buthri by the neck on the floor, his pants down and her skirt all up.  Toep Tshewang, Bumo Pelzang Buthri’s husband, rushed forth with a sword in his hand.  Before long, however, Drukpa Kunley had the sword by his right hand and twisted it into a knot.


Holding the knotted sword still and ramming the young and beautiful Pelzang Buthri all the while hard on the floor of Toep Tshewang’s altar, pronounced the crazy yogi from Ralung of the Gya clan thusly:


Toep Tsewang of Wang Silung loves truth

And I his sexy and bewitching wife 

And here, the lovers meet for truth and lust


Toep Tshewang stood there for a good while aghast, and then turned away, feeling helpless and utterly ashamed.  Knowing that the yogi was no ordinary monk, Toep Tshewang surrendered his young wife to the crazy yogi immediately and his soul to dharma eternally.


Wooden stairs on which Drukpa Kunley’s arrow landed

From that love between the crazy yogi and Bumo Pelzang Buthri was born Sangdak Gartoen, great-grandfather of fourth Druk Desi Gyalsey Tenzin Rabgay.


Thus, the legend of one of the greatest Drukpa yogis spread throughout Bhutan.  The people of the southern country of Mon were then terrorized by man-eating demons.  Bringing the demoness of Dochula down to where Chimi Lhakhang stands today, Lama Drukpa Kunley had her subdued for eternity under a black chorten.


But the crazy yogi needed more young girls and wine.  He took myriad consorts in Bhutan – Zhungzi Ashi Gyenzo, Pache Namkha Dem, Babi Bum Chenzom, Goentoe Samey Andzo, and Bumo Pelzang Buthri.


However, jealously sparked between women and demoness alike, because of Lama Drukpa Kunley’s massive fire-spitting wisdom thunderbolt.  Aum Choekim, a demoness near Chimi lhakhang, turn herself to a fearsome frame and attacked the lama when he was coming down the small trail along the Teobi Rongchu.  She was all nude, her hair down in Punatsangchu, her left leg on the ridge where Chimi lhakhang is today, and the other on the ridge opposite.


“Is it your ignorance that brought you here, or it is your death that you are seeking?” shouted Aum Choekim, lips of her massive dreadlocked vagina flapping in the air.  Drukpa Kunley had his fire-spitting wisdom thunderbolt by his right and caught Aum Choekim by his left hand and subdued her to eternal silence.


Now covered with thick overgrowth, the old highway that connected Wangdue to Punakha has to be bushwhacked to find a path.  It was this path that the crazy yogi Drukpa Kunley used to hunt the demons along the Punatsangchhu.  And along this forgotten trail are many nyes related to Lama Drukpa Kunley.

First, there is uzha (hat) under a tree.  It is massive. One is left to wonder what kind of a giant the yogi was.  And, of course, the imprints of his fire-spitting wisdom thunderbolt, here and there.  They are so huge even municipal corporations of this day have not been able to build sewers of that size.

Statue of Aum Choekim in Chimi Lhakhang

As Aum Choekim turned to a fish and disappeared into Punatsangchhu, Drukpa Kunley caught her by the tail and slammed her onto a giant rock.  The imprint of the fish is there, curved deep and vivid.  And there is Drukpa Kunley’s pot, a hole in a rock.  When a stone is thrown into it, there is a metallic sound.

There is the rock on which Lama Drukpa Kunley rested in pain, pointing his fire-spitting wisdom thunderbolt to Tsho Bangko in Punatsangchhu, from where he expected a demoness to come to attack him.  Drukpa Kunley had a huge penis indeed.

Phalluses galore on the walls en route to Chimi Lhakhang

But the demoness did not turn up.  Drukpa Kunley sent a message to Draphu Martika in Nepal where Guru Rinpoche was giving the blessing of long life.  He asked Guru to send a tshechu (holy water of long life).  Guru hurled the water from Martika.

There, unseen during summer the water level rises but seen during winter is tshechu pouring down from rock project in the shape of a penis and a vagina.

From here, Drukpa Kunley went towards Samdingkha, where he has left him fingerprints and a golden urn, among others.

When his brother Nawang Chogyel left for Tibet, Drukpa Kunley stayed back.

“You go ahead. Good wine and pretty asses of Bhutanese women are holding me back. We’ll meet again soon,” said Drukpa Kunley.

Digitallay Colorized Photograph of the Tongsa Penlop Ugyen Wangchuk taken by John Claude White in 1905.

 Photograph of the Tongsa Penlop Ugyen Wangchuk taken by John Claude White in 1905. Ugyen Wangchuk was a key player in the politics of Bhutan in the early 20th century. In the 19th century, Bhutan and the British in India had clashed over the control of the duars or passes into eastern India. The hostilities ended when the British and Bhutan signed the Treaty of Sinchula. By the late 19th century, power centered upon the Penlops of Paro and Tongsa.

 The Younghusband Mission of 1904, set up to negotiate with the Tibetans, passed through Bhutan. The Penlop of Paro remained aloof while the Penlop of Tongsa assisted the mission. He accompanied the mission to Tibet and played an important role as mediator, using the long-established ties between Tibet and Bhutan to help the British negotiate a favorable agreement. Bhutan now operated firmly within the British sphere of influence and Ugyen Wangchuk was popular after his role as mediator with both the British and the Bhutanese. This resulted in the foundation of the hereditary monarchy of Bhutan when Ugyen Wangchuk was elected King of Bhutan in 1907.
