Maximum post in a month

Tomorrow, the month of November will end. I have written five post in this month itself. Wow!! this is huge. Well i know, this is nothing for most of the  bloggers. They write more than 10 or even more than that in a month but for me, it was like "woah! i did write a lot this time"!! 
I have come to know that, some of the bloggers though being occupied with tight schedule , won’t put their head on the pillow before at least pinning on some words on their respective blogs. Passionately driven into the world of writing, they write lying awake at night.
Well number of times, i sit in front of my laptop, opening my account, script it down few words but then again, i let my words be erased not being satisfied with what i am writing. I get stuck with the confusion of words to be put down together, not getting appropriate topics to write on and finally always landing  without a single post. So, most of the time, i prefer reading and getting cheerfully amused by what other bloggers have written.
Blogging is a platform where we can pour out what's going inside us, our feelings, thoughts, and opinions without the consent of any body and share to the world without spending a penny. Our literature might not be as good as it should be, mistakes might occur but it's all ours. Time would rectify everything.
So, i ought to promise myself to increase the number of post every month and I have also promised some of the respected bloggers that i would keep up with them and i do not wish to let them down as i have chosen writing not as a materialistic thing  but as a close friend of mine, whom I would chat, laugh, cry and play to the extend I want.
So, fellow bloggers, keep visiting my blog and drop your comments  as much as possible as that would boost me up more and more.
Thank you!!
Have a nice night and a happy December.

Studying without clothes: Story of Sangay Wangmo

I felt a sudden jerk in my throat, my eyes got numb with tears and i felt my heart crying when i saw the video of this little girl called Sangay wangmo. She had a face filled with innocence, having put on an old clothe given by other people.
As she spoke, her voice made something pinch in me and as she went on telling the story of struggle she was going through, thick tears rolled down my cheek as i couldn't resist.
We tend to complain about going to school, quarrel with parents to do the homework, fight with teachers for having got a scolding for not doing the work properly. Well this little girl is instead fighting her emotions, defending herself against all pro and cons of the pathetic life she is having only to pursue 'education'. Among st  the 8 siblings, she is the only one going to school. After the death of her father, mother became regular with drinking, her three elder siblings dropped the school, three younger ones were given away for adoption and one found his way to religious path. She was the only one who refused to drop school even though she knew her mother won't be able to support her. Hand on hand with the thorns of life, she continued her schooling with the peck of supports she got from the people feeling pity on her and moved on with constant pace.
 I salute her for her determination and hope with hopeful prayers that she achieves what she dreams of life and get what she wants. this is the link if you wish to watch her story too.

Magic behind words: Story of J.k ROWLING

On screen and in books, we have watched and read the magical world of Harry Potter, created magnificently wonderful which is enjoyed thoroughly all over the world by not only the children but the adults as well. Along with Harry, Hermoine and Ron, we have been through the adventures in search of philosophers stone, revealed the secrets behind the chamber of secrets, rescued the prisoner of Azkaban, participated in the Quidditch match most of us with Griffindor, felt the pain and evil power of the half blood prince and cherished the end of the  " he who must not be named".
Well, the white witch which has taken us on this fantasy world, one responsible for the "boy who lived" and let us into the journey along with him, Ms.J.K.Rowling(Joanne Rowling) has her own share of beautiful childhood days but a dreadful teenage years.

In a documentary movie " magic beyond words" we can actually see how this most popular and one of the richest billionare  in England, once struggled, having no shelter for her and her baby, depending on the state benefits, not even having a proper paper to write her stories.


Her passion of writing lay back down from the age since 6 where her mother used to read her books every night. As an on ,she imagined herself to be one of the character and always used to get lost in the fantasy world. Since then, writer was what she wanted to be. .

J.k.Rowling's childhood                                    Her Inspiration: Her Mother

In her adulthood, her life took a massive destructive stage. She lost her mother, got divorced with her husband, became jobless with a dependent child whom she had to feed. She was sunk into the forest of depression on a verge of even committing suicide but her feeling of illness brought alive the idea of Dementors(soul sucking creature) in the third book and she describes her failure as liberating.
                  Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
 – J. K. Rowling, "The fringe benefits of failure", 2008

Her first book harry potter and the philosopher stone got published with the help of Christopher Little Literary Agents and that was a turning point in the life of Rowling. Her messed up life started to sort out itself slowly and then, soon enough Harry potter started climbing the tree of success under the novice pen of Rowling chapter after chapter and book after book. Within the term of five year, she became one of  the richest women, won lots of awards and gained the highest respect of being a writer with millions of fans cherishing her book.

'Her progress from living on state benefits to multi-millionaire status is due to the greatest passion she had, the thing she always wanted to do, 'WRITING" . If we want something truely, i believe we can achieve it. Row is such an inspiration. I salute her for her dream come true and the wonderful inspiration she has given to all her fans on screen and from books'

You are an inspiration.

Illusionary journey of impermanence

As i move on and on with life, time and again, i get to wonder why we are here. In the streets of raichur, i see many people, young and old, all busy trying to cope up with life under the scorching heat to fill up their bellies. On the way, for the cattles and buffaloes, Ranveer kapoor and Deepika padukone's film posters have become the meals for them as no green grasses are available. They got no choice but to change their taste buds to fulfill their hunger. Back to college, many white apron bearers including me are seen in libraries, some in hospitals and some in hostels, all busy designing their life so that  it be beautifully decorated in the future.

Animals, humans, insects and even the non living things get transformed, non functional, and one day become what we refer to as impermanence. With time, everything ceases. We are living in an illusionary  dream which will be over one day or the other. For the living ones, when death calls us, we have no idea as to where the call will lead us to. If there is life after death, then we shall live in another  world of suffering, ignorance and hatred, full of illusions adding up our sins forming a chain around the circle of life and death.

Buddha has spread Buddhism in almost all the directions around the world. People do know and understand the precious, golden words of Buddha which was spread from his disciples to make us understand the teachings for the generations now and then to pass over this samsara and attain the life of Nirvana. But in this advanced world where technology and science has dominantly taken powerful hold, the innocent worldy beings are driven into the so called trying to achieve 'impermanence". Life seems  meaningless when we think about death but worth meaningful if done something meaningfully good and beneficial to all sentient beings.

                 No matter how green she might have been, it will  have no single leave to beautify her.

              you might have been the most beautiful once, but the wrinkles wont stop you from aging.

        it would have been the best looking car, but the lifeless things also ages with time.

          While alive, mingling together would have been fun, but death do all of us apart forever leaving behind just the gust of memories in the air which volatilizes with the passing 
                                                                    of time !!!!

One Man, Thirty Nine wives

Quite excited right?  Well, i was too when i first spotted the topic on the story about the Ziona Chana's BIG FAMILY in Mizoram on the north-eastern side of India.
I was browsing through a magazine in the library when my eyes captured the topic, " A Big Phat Family". And just below i saw a paragraph in between the story " 39 wives, 90 children and 45 grandchildren".
WOW!! i got really excited to see the full story.

Long before, in the very past, there were stories about kings having more than 40 wives but it is quite amazing to learn that at this generation also, a common man like us is living a life of a legendary King with multiple wife to care him, 90 children and 45 grand childrens, well if  in-laws are counted, the family has a total of 180 members. Unbelievable!!!

Many questions ran through my mind. How does he manage to make a living?? How do they leave together?? Aren't wives having problem??  Well, gradually all my questions were answered. A flourishing furniture business, farmlands, poultry farms and piggery holds under his power. Along with that, he runs guest houses for tourist who flock to village solely to see him and his family and for that, he charges 150 dollars for a family picture. They live in a four stored house with 100 room where  wives reside  in giant, separate dormitories. Their mansion set amid-st the hills of Baktwang village in the Indian state of Mizoram. And most surprisingly, for a meal, the recipe consist of more than 40 chickens, 48kg of rice, 24 kg of dal and if it's beef, around 10 cows are slaughtered in a day.

As for the bed sharing business with the king, in his room having double bed, the womens take turn, a rotation system. The youngest five wives get the privilege to set their rooms near to his. Wives consider him GOD to them. Their family is based on 'mutual love and respect" and to maintain peace, senior wives let him hang along with young ones with great understanding . Ziona Chana, in his religious sect. states him having 400 member in his family which means, he is not going to stop looking for new wives. 'To expand my sect. i am willing to go even to the U.S to marry" he has mentioned. Woooooo.......!!!!

Husshh!!, No energy required to read his story but i really felt tired after reading that. Can anyone imagine so....hahaha..(wink) ...

MiSty TeRRaCe: Inspirational BAND of the generation.

I am sure i do not need to give any introduction about this band  but  as i am a great fan and since the Band has become a public eye, i got to add some  peppers to give more taste to this inspiring, young, growing band.

Two years back ,I was browsing my facebook when I saw  two videos  posted in my friend’s timeline  with a caption “guys, he got an awesome voice, check it out”.  Thick, black curls of bird’s nest around his head  made me quite curious to check it out once besides being a music lover. When I listened to his voice and the song he has composed, the once to be watched video became again and again, forcing the buffering action of the  video. The spell of 'yonphula' trapped me and I immediately recorded and decided to sing the song  for the first time in Bhutanese gathering during losar celebration. I did get a good compliment from my friends having sung a never heard song as no one knew about the Band back then.

Tandin Wangchuk with his majestic hairstyle.

Since then, I have been following his page ‘misty terrace’ and keeping update with his new videos. I shared about the band to my friend tshering who is also music lover. He also got mad at super musical charm of the band and soon both of us started  getting into the paradise of misty world.  We learned all the songs of them and also started to play guitar along with it in most of the gathering.

The leading Guitarist: Bikas Gurung   

                          Tshewang Gyeltshen, the chorus king                            

Now, the scent of misty world has touched all the hearts of young youths of Bhutan. During my vacation, I saw almost all people especially the youths , in town, neighbourhood  and school, some  beating the strings of  ‘thimphu babesa’, some,"choelu tade" and mostly “yonphula” Even a fifth standard boy was telling he wanted to sing a song of “copi”. At first I thought he was a new singer in Bhutan but soon I learned, the mysterious  copi’ was the nickname of the misty boy  ‘Tandin Wangchuk’.  He seem to have got this name because of the majestic hairstyle like a cauliflower on his head. Even in facebook now, many  fans are seen uploading their own set of cover songs of misty terrace. He is seen performing live shows all around the country and soon he is to release his album at the end of this year. I am really looking forward for that.

Tandin wangchuk( copi’s) got the hand of his lead guitarist Bikas Gurung. The leadings of Bikas and the chorus oTshewang gives more live to the misty songs with the melody  of Tandin’s voice. They are the inspiration not only to me but many young music lovers like me in today’s generation. I put my hands along with all the fans  for the successfull release of their album and to keep composing more of such wonderful songs.


(note:everything i knew about the band, i scripted it down . If some informations are wrong or mistaken, do forgive me)
