A Painful Little more

A Painful Little more

I start my thoughts on little more today. Little more today I contemplated; Little more is painful.
Little more for a living, Little more for surviving, Little more for something, Little more for everything Is always painful.
Little more love Builds little more expectation Little more of it Brings endless pain.
Little more fun Brings priceless memories Little more of reminiscence Brings pain of missing.
Little more of foreign Forgets old as gold. Homage for new Eulogy for old.
Little more to me Little more for you Little more for them Little more for Universe Is winningest to painful.

A Socialist Beggar This article was written long time back when we were send for mock reporting during the Journalism course from the media house I am working today. A loner and a chronic bachelor, Dorji, 84-year- old is originally from Lingzhi.  Wearing a green check gho, with a blue coat stays near the main traffic of Thimphu city begging for money with some good motive. It was astonishing for me to know that the amount collected after staying in heat for a longer duration would be contributed in Lhakhangs and guendeys. It was awe for me to give him Nu 5 only. Hence I added twenty more as a contribution for his splendid deed. As pedestrian adds some money on his Khadim shoe cartoon box, he smiles and thanks them with a prostrating posture. Begging has become his way of life. “Aftermath  of begging; surviving on others hard earned money might have bad repercussion, therefore, I contribute most of the amount collected for religious ceremony in Phajoding,” he said. He visits Phajoding once…

Dedicated to the 60th Birth anniversary of Fourth Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singye Wangchuck

I am posting my article after two years.  I dedicate this poem to our Beloved Fourth Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singye Wangchuck.


Homage to the Legendary King of Bhutan
We pay homage to Fourth Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singye Wangchuck, Leader who never commands but lead his subject. We pay homage to a living Bodhisattva, For his wisdom and self less sacrifices; Even for the nature.

An inspiration for his heroic deeds. We pay homage to the catalyst for peace. For his spirit as same as LingGesar Gyalpo Leading the arms on foot through rugged terrains. In Cold Winter December 2003 Militants suffered a shellacking.

From Duar war at, the then Dewangiri And operation against the militants at Dewathang People out there still feel his sedulity. Homage to assiduous leader for his vision and farsightedness. Long Live Fourth Druk Gyalpo!

Fifth Druk Gyalpo Pronounced: “There has never been a king like His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck in our history and there will never be a greater king ever again.” Let the country be bless and b…
14 Year old Lhaki’s hope of a full vision is dashed after her referral is deniedBy Thinley wangmo | 03 January 2013 Lhaki Dema loved to dance and she never missed any dance competition. Four years back when her right eye became blind she stopped dancing. Her father Sonam Tshering said “for her dance competition I had to buy her a new dress and shoes annually.” But her interest in dance got lost and she avoids being with her friends and prefers to stay in her room, all alone. When Lhaki was 11 years old her right eye got infected. It started turning red, watery and got irritated. “I can’t even face sunshine and I get giddiness too,” said Lhaki. As soon as her eye got infected she was taken to Paro hospital and was admitted for two weeks. After that she was referred to Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Referral Hospital (JDWNRH), Thimphu. “Even after staying for around two months, doctors in JDWNRH could not cure my daughter’s eye,” said Sonam Tshering. On asking about the eye specialist w…
Home Ministry to help Sonam Tshering and family with Citizenship Identity CardBy Thinley Wangmo | 28 December 2012 Following a story in The Bhutanese  this week, Sonam Tshering, and his three sons who were stateless for more than two decades will soon get their Citizenship Identity Cards (CID). At the moment the Home Minister, Lyonpo Minjur Dorji said that the ministry is looking into the matter. “If they are genuine Bhutanese then we are very supportive in this case. We are there to help them to get the Bhutanese Citizenship,” said the minister. Immediately after this paper reported the matter the minister talked with his officials on how Sonam Tshering and his family remained without citizenship. The home minister said that anyone who had problem with their citizenship comes to him or else to the concerned office. He said Sonam Tshering had never approached him on this matter though he was there with the ministry for more than four years. The Ministry is presently verifying the matt…
Bureaucratic bungling leaves a family without Citizenship

By Thinley Wangmo | 26 December 2012
Sonam Tshering and wife Phub Zam In a process where even blame got lost, a man and his family remain without a country even though they spent half a lifetime in the very country they live in Such a thing is citizenship, people may spend a life time in a country but they will be proven an alien on the very land they walked since birth. And all this is because of the invisibility of a piece of document called the Citizenship Identity Card (CID). And in a very real instance, Sonam Tshering, 59 born in Bji gewog under Haa dzongkhag lived an almost full circle of his life in Bhutan. But legally speaking, for more than two decades he and his three sons are stateless.
Lost CID Till the 1980s Sonam Tshering had a CID during which he and his late wife shifted and settled in Paro. Those days his census was with his wife’s family and his cousin Tenzin Yeshi used to look after it. His brother-in-law used …
Happy and safe but polluted and sadBy Thinley Wangmo | 09 November 2012 Photo courtesy: Tashi Tshering, WWF Bhutan The Lunana Community is without any doubt happy, and hugely relieved that the imminent and immediate danger to their settlement is contained many thanks to the project which lowered the levels of the Thorthormi and Rapsthreng Lake. Be that as it may, the community, in the aftermath is however in gripes with the polluted and unkempt environment left behind as residue of works undertaken by men, machine, animals and temporary campsites. The highlanders are unhappy to see their pristine and virgin landscapes turned into a ramshackle ghost terrain. Lunana Gup Gyenpo Tshering said that the project has immensely saved the nation from Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF) calamities, but it polluted the gewog and left the paved path and wooden bridges in poor conditions. He said villagers are unaware of the cleanliness so they are more concerned about limited tsamdro which is insu…
