THOUGHT OF JIGME ZANGPO: March 2016

Milestone is near doorstep and did I achieve the desire target?

After 3 months I will have Bachelor in Electronic and Communication Engineering (BE ECE) Certificate. I am wondering whether I had intend knowledge and skill or more than intend of BE ECE graduate should acquire.

A dozen of questions with no definite answers are arising with one another. What will I do after graduating in the field? Technical or management work? Is BE ECE not desire course for me? What if I have joined to another general college?  No thoughts shall solve the problem at eleventh hour. The questions goes on. Did I make mistake in choosing the incorrect course? With no definite answer to the question, I came to realize I am doing big blunders. The blunders of intention. I should have set the target in 2011. What goes wrong within 5 years? Didn’t I prepare to get adequate knowledge and skill of ECE?

I am pretty sure I can have Certificate of BE ECE. And I am also sure I will have no concert skills of ECE. But I am optimistic. We are living in the era of technology. Resources are always available for willing person. If person has a wills to know, he will acquire his willingness. I have no worry of any skills. There are many people who I can ask the helps.

I am now eager to enter the world of independent and want to experience the first-hand experiences. 

Hard work goes in vain

We work tirelessly to achieve the target of the project. Our topic of the project is E-waste Management and designing of prototypes out of e-waste. It is research base project. The viewer may think we haven’t done any work, but in reality the research base project is the toughest project. It required all the critical thinking. We don’t mind for your baseless questions. We will never defend your question because we know you are going to connect my answers to another question. We won’t mind if it is at least a suggestion than debating question.

We are living in Bhutan and we know the trend of our society. We are living in the world of our own imagination. No one believe other but themselves. No body accept their mistake but defend their mistake. No body take feedback as feedback but as criticism. We ask the suggestion but suggestions are never taken into account.


I got to ask, am I living in Bhutan? Yes, I am. I have in my blood the trend of society. Do I need to change that trend? Yes, I got to change because no people like those trend.
Hard work goes in vain when no people just appreciate for the sake of giving courage of their work. We are living in the society where no people give your hard work a credit because they find your work is not at their par. How we can expect different people to have same quality of work. How can we conclude other work a dissatisfactory without analyzing? We have no manifest to analyze other yearlong task within a few minutes. If we have that power we may not be dreaming here. It would better if we give suggestion than criticism.

It is very disappointing to hear such a criticizing and disgusting words for one’s hard work output.

Trip to Paro Taktsang (Tiger nest)

Para Taktsang. Source:Wikipedia
Paro Taktsang (Dzongkha: སྤ་གྲོ་སྟག་ཚང་ spa phro stag tshang / spa gro stag tshang) is the popular name of Taktsang Palphug Monastery (also known as Tiger's Nest), a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and temple complex, located in the cliff side of the upper Paro valley, in Bhutan. A temple complex was first built in 1692, around the Taktsang Senge Samdup (stag tshang seng ge bsam grub) cave where Guru Padmasambhava is said to have meditated for three years, three months, three weeks, three days and three hours in the 8th century. Padmasambhava is credited with introducing Buddhism to Bhutan. Today, Paro Taktsang is the best known of the thirteen taktsang or "tiger lair" caves in which he meditated.

The longing thoughts and observations from recent trip to Paro Taktsang need to be shared. One who visit will know the basic rules and regulation. I am trying to let who plan to visit to understand basic rules and regulation of visiting Paro Taktsang.

You may go to visit with informal dress and you will land up without having an opportunity to go inside to visit scared status. It is just simple to let you grasp an opportunity to visit inside to view scared status and all by going in formal dress, (National dress, gho for man and kira for women). The police checking before entering the fortress will make thorough check; whether you with national dress, taking camera and mobile phone inside? They don’t bother if you are foreigner, of course not allowing camera and mobile phone apply to you.

What is the time you are going to visit? At 12 noon to 1 pm or 1 to 2 pm? You can't visit whenever you wish to visit. They usually close 1 to 2 pm for lunch break. I had a thought regards to this timing. Why they close for lunch time? That is not a shop or office. That is simply a fortress with scared status from long time ago to show to pilgrimages.

Visit once if you can.
