Everything happens for ones own good

With the belief that everything that happens in our day to day life just happens for our own good and with a reason, I thought of sharing a short story or an incident which happened with one of my friends. Few days back he was busy in searching for a job and after seeking at various companies he finally got in one. That day he was really happy and he immediately joined the company from the next day itself.

He was working there with his full heart and dedication. Within few days he met with many new friends and their work was under full swing but one ugly morning he was going for his everyday chores where he saw that the MD of the company was just standing in-front of his office but he didn’t notice him as it was quite usual. As he was passing by him, suddenly a voice came from his back “hey! You mister, you can work today but you don’t have to come to the office from tomorrow on-wards OK” that also without any explanation.

That was really a dreadful news for him which he not even dream of and in shock he only could give response in sign language that is to move his head. How can somebody do like that with an innocent’s life, I personally felt really bad on hearing that. He was sharing me that at once he felt like falling down from the sky and it was like a dreadful dream. There was only one question bouncing in his brain “but why?” With nothing that he could do on that situation he had to accept it.

That whole day he was thinking that what wrong he might have done? And he asked to few of his colleagues and came to know that MD was saying they were having more staffs than actually required. “No way..!! That can’t be the reason I believe” as all the staffs were fully engaged. Once he thought of asking to MD the truth but thinking that it’s just a waste of time he leaved it.

Now he was in big trouble ‘where to work now?’ and started to drag his mind. Gradually many options started to blink on his way from which he nominated the best and went to seek the job there. And as expected he got the job there with a much higher pay than before and he was happy again. His story made me to belief strongly in that saying ‘everything happens for good’. So there is nothing to worry about is something wrong happens with you, just believe that it happened for good and another better way will be waiting for you.

One step towards the dream

In life, the first thing we must have is the dream to have something or to become something in the future and the determination to fulfill that. The dream that we dream about gives us the courage and determination to move forward and make it happen one day.

As rightly said by the Bruce Lee “knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” Like-wise simply dreaming is not enough; we must have the determination, hope and the strong belief in the dream that we dream of. The strong belief acts as our weapon and shows us the path that leads us in approaching our dream but if don’t have the dream in our life, it’s very hard for us to become a successful man in the coming future.

We tend to lack behind when our friends moves ahead living us as they had their own dream and they worked for it. As a student we must have our ambition which can be our true dream. That ambition helps us in deciding our streams and courses during our higher studies and makes our life simple. We can study according to our ambitions needs from the beginning itself and can move forward efficiently to grape our dream and feel like enlighten at the end of the tough day. But many a time’s students fail to decide their ambitions and get puzzled with their hobbies and their ambition in the time of needs. Ambitions and hobbies are two different things but if we think carefully they the same thing and hobby is our interest and our interest leads to our ambition.

Our dream can be our needs wants or may be our desires but as known wants and desires are like drinking the water from the ocean which is unbounded. As said “if we can make mistake we must have the ability to withstand the punishment. Similarly if we can have the desire we must have the ability to earn it by self or else better not dream of because it is the root of immeasurable sorrow. So, dream for good, have belief in it and start our journey with the one step and there is no way that you may lose your track in the middle.

Can see the future of Wangdue

This is actually a good news for all the residents of Wangdue and even for all the citizens of Bhutan. I’m talking about the construction of one of the biggest hospital in Bhutan at Wangdue dzongkhag by the Punatsangchu hydro project at wangdue. The hospital is under construction and it said that it will be completed within few years.

 The construction works of forty buildings project is under full swing and almost half of the construction work is completed. I’m talking about this because the hospital is just above my house and it’s a good news for me too. When the hospital is completed thousands of Bhutanese citizens can receive its best services like at the JDWNRH in Thimphu and many people who may not be able to reach Thimphu can receive the same service from here by then.

I’m really happy to see such initiatives of the project and the Bhutan govt. for the well-being of people of the nation. I just want to wish that the project to complete soon and provide its best services to the nation.

The first conference

This was my first time attending the parents and teachers conference in the school. Few days back I heard that there will be a conference in the school soon. Since my youngest brother is studying in grade one and mom being busy with her daily schedule and only option left was me. I tried hard to ignore knowing that it would be so boring listening to long session but couldn’t avoid.

Today was the conference and had to attend. Unexpectedly the conference was held outside in the sun as the school don’t have MP hall which they should. Listening to the speeches from the principal teachers and the gup’s long speech, I almost lost my sight. As expected they were talking about the child’s hygiene diet punctuality studies and more than that they were focusing on the budget for the school rimdo and statue of ‘jutsen jamyang’ the god of wisdom which was good but they should have talked more on how to improve the child’s study.

After almost two and half hours session in the sun again there was two hours non-stop session inside the class. We were having tough time listening in hunger but it was quite informative and was all for our own good. They talked about the disaster that is happening in and around the nation, health issues and precautions, ten core life skills and physical fitness and for that I would like to thank all the teachers and the principal of the Rinchengang pry school (wangdue). And finally after a long wait the session ended successfully.

Don't use cellphone while driving

Using cellphone while driving is strictly prohibited from the law only to secure our own life and live a worth life but people are taking this things quite lightly and losing own life and even others worth life due to a simple carelessness of the drivers. Today morning shocking it just happened beside our home above the dragon nest resort. The driver was busy talking in cellphone when he realized that he is out of the road and falling down from the hill.

The road was straight but I don’t know how he lost his control and directly fell around 50 ft. down on the resort’s car parking. Few guides and drives saw the accident in 3D motion just in-front of their sight and they said that they quickly tried to rescue the driver reached him to the Bajo hospital immediately. Fortunately there was only the driver in the car and he was saved but everybody may not be as lucky as him and we can’t effort to test the death.

When I reached at the place the car was upright down and crushed on the parking border leaning on a tree which almost crushed the whole front left fender and engine. I know this is not a new story here and we know everything about it but we are lacking to implement the truth. We tend to forget time and again and take it lightly but we never know when our bad fortune arrives. It’s just a reminder to all the drivers and even to the passengers to avoid their drivers from using cellphone while driving.

I think we can at least stop our car for a while to respond the call or we can make use of the technology and use a bluetooth ear phone as I believe it’s quite save. We should never do with the messaging while driving as it really diverts our sight and concentration leading to accident. I don’t know if the bbs would cover this news today as it has become quite common these days. Our life our responsibility and but we shouldn’t forget the worth life of our passengers behind. Prevention is better than cure as said.

The most dreadful morning-II

With my heart beating at the highest rate and my entire body shivering, I shouted to my house owner who was still on the bed at the next floor asking him to reach me to the school quickly. Hearing my unusual voice he woke at once and as he was kind hearted, he was ready to reach me there. I quickly wrap my gho and run towards the road at my highest speed. I was wondering how could I be so stupid and idiot at the moment and how could I mix up the ‘board time table’? Luckily it was dzongkha otherwise I was dead.

I was thinking that the day after is English and the final exam is dzongkha but in reality dzongkha was before english. How could that happen? With nothing in the mind but the fear of principal sir’s growl on seeing me, I reached in the school where the chief invigilator madam was waiting for me at the door of our exam hall and fortunately principal sir was busy talking with someone behind there. Madam didn’t say anything and quickly scanned my pocket and my entry card. I went straight to my seat, while all my friends there were wondering why was I so late for the exam?

When I got the question paper on my hand it was almost 9:15 by then, thirty minutes late. With nervousness I found myself writing my name on the answer sheet where we are supposed to write the subject. At one glance on the answer sheet, I saw only a space and thought that it is  for the name and only after writing half of my name, I saw it was written sub: in the front. I was totally out of my mind even forgotten that we never write our name on the board exam answer sheet. And when I quickly tried to aggregate my mind and try to write my index no. there and guess what, I even forgotten that too.

It’s so funny but it happens in such situations. I was even having tough time searching my index no. on my entry card. I had to cross check the number thrice to make sure it was right. Being late by thirty minutes and being a slow writer, I almost lost my mind. While everybody was busy writing the questions and answers part of the passage, I was reading the first line. The more I try to write fast the more my hand gets slow. With my shivering hand I hardly could read my own hand writing. I was just wondering how the markers would read my answers. And like as I was expecting I couldn’t complete with my answering.

As soon as we were out of the hall all my friends were curious to know why was I late for the exam. I had tough time in explaining them. It was really the most dreadful morning of my life but I’m taking it as a lifelong lesson. We should never take things so lightly always or else you’ll land up in a hick soup like me.

The most dreadful morning

Our class twelve board exam time table was out by then and it was pasted on our school notice board at our block. I with all the curiosity quickly went to copy the time table on a piece of paper. Due to my laziness I copied all the subjects and dates in their short forms which only I could understand thinking that I will rewrite when I’m home. At the first glance itself I tried to grab the entire time table into my brain and I was sure about that. I rewrote it and pasted just in-front of my study table so that I can see it and study accordingly. By then I memorized it all and I was ready for the exam. We were almost done with our exams and only two subjects were left. They were dzongkha and English.

One morning I woke up lately at around eight knowing it was off on that day. I was sure of the off and I didn’t ask to any of my friends on the day before. I woke up with the relaxed mind after a long tough exams and busy schedules. My mind was fresh; I went to the kitchen made a cup of coffee for my grandpa put rice in the rice cooker, brushed my teeth at the slowest rate, washed my face and came back to my room. As soon as I stepped on the door, I heard my cellphone ringing. With wonder who would be calling me in the morning. I quickly picked up the phone and said, “hello” and a lady responded me “is this dhan kumar rai?” and with a quick think, I replied “yes”. I dragged my brain hard to recognize that voice and as she was speaking in english, I was thinking that she could be one of our school teachers. But again why would a teacher call me at the morning and who she could be? It was quite unusual.

While I was lost in the wonder, there comes the most dreadful news for me as she said, “Are you not coming to do the exam today?” OMG! What did I hear? Am I not in the dream? I couldn’t believe my ears and found out that she is the chief invigilator madam. With a short shocking silence I replied back “today is our off know madam?” and she quickly responded back “no today you have dzongkha exam, come here fast you are getting late for the exam.” I quickly looked at the time table which was just in-front of me and found out that she was right. I was so shocked at once and felt I suddenly fell down from the sky, how could that happen? My heart beats suddenly rushed up to the highest beating. Before I could respond back our principal sir started howling at me. “you fellow! What are you doing? Come here fast within thirty minutes.”  To be cont...
