My New Found Love: - What shall thy name be???

I count myself lucky having met her one sunny day near the place I presently stay. I purely attribute it to the destiny or the fate we shared since it was the invisible string of love and passion that brought us together. None would dare to agree to believe me that she just decided to stay with me midway in Chukha in her journey to Thimphu, having consulted neither her parents nor anyone who took her care. So bold she is, is she? If ever I have been waiting for the fresh love, it was she who would give me the correct doze.

"Lucky girl she is!"

We have now developed so much of attachment that we can hardly think of time away from each other. We love each other so much that we eat together in same plate, sleep in one bed, go for evening walk and literally do everything together. What love is this if it is not one genuine one? The time I have to be in office is the time I miss her most while she stay at home, sleeping all day till I return home. Lucky girl she is!

She eats the food I prepare for ourselves, help her take shower and prepare bed. She literally does nothing for me rather than just sleep on the bed all day. I never mind because I love her so much. But she does me one important thing. She wakes me up early to accompany her to toilet and this is how she helps me rise early. I am grateful to her for that.

"It was the destiny that asked me to look at it?"

But going back to how I met her, I was just baking in the autumn sun outside my residence. With my bare chest surrendered to the morning glow of nature, I was reading the novel. As usual, the T/phu – P/ling highway remained busy with traffic on constant move. Did I somehow notice the Army truck whiz below or is it the colossal howl of this uniformed man that attracted my attention or was it the destiny that asked me to look at it?
The Saktiman (army truck) loaded with camouflaged goods sped away and from among these camouflaged man fell on road, my frail love. I instinctively went near her with the proposal to stay with me and she faithfully accepted my proposal. She now serves me as a friend with whom I talk, friend who joins me for evening stroll, and interesting of all someone who wakes me up early morning (I don’t get late to office anymore or she saved me from early morning fire)
"I temporarily call her “Puppy” but I know she is more than that"

But one thing that worries me is, she never revealed her name or identity. With whatever name I call her, she just wigs her tail and that is one thing that really perplex me. I know she would have preferred to tell me her name but she just couldn’t. I temporarily call her “Puppy” but I know she is no more that little puppy. But in my quest to call her by those English name, we just agreed ourselves with it. But I am not yet satisfied with it.

So, here is the help I am asking from the folk to name her those English name.

Thinley Dorji out for hunting ‘Buddha Mushroom’ in Blue pine Forests

Bumthanps in droves collects magic mushroom helping mint lots of money  All thanks to income he generates from selling Matsutake mushroom which Blue pine forests in Ura, Bumthang is endowed with, Thinley Dorji, 36 was able to put up decent roof over his head. This is in addition to the steady follow of money for educational expenses of his three school-going kids. But it is easier to be envious of such benefits than having to hear the whole lot of story behind the facade. It simply takes someone a whole lot of determinations and sacrifices in collecting the marvelous Matsutake mushroom. Thinley wakes up early, from the shed he spent his other night guarding his potato crops from wild animals. Believing that “early bird catches most worms,” he needs to be in the forests ahead of all other folks. Otherwise, what is grown will have to be shared among the parade of collectors. "Lucky for him, there was a light drizzle, the other night and Thinley heads out optimistic of the good

An unending war in Wangling battlefield

It is mid-summer and Goshing Wangling, a remote village in Zhemgang has transformed into an extraordinarily beautiful hamlet. The quaint little hamlet has turned extravagantly lush with tropical vegetation fencing the village while the inside is chock-full with different varieties of agriculture crops growing green and fresh. It is possible to literally hear the butterfly wing beat and feel the soft seasonal breeze transport to some magical land of peace and plenty far away from the crowd of modern settlements. The vista stretches far beyond the little settlements. One wonders that if Wangling can contain and give so much, what amazing wealth of floral and faunal beauty could exist between the tall, splendid mountains faraway and the vast spotless azure sky behind them.  Peace that appears to reign so abundantly in this small village, however is not absolute. Hidden behind the façade lies a chronic problem. "The Wangling farmers have to constantly face rampaging wild animals tha

An honour of delivering His Majesty’s 'Soelra'

Have you ever tried, even once, to stand outside in winter for few hours? Ok, let me be more lenient. Let’s keep it for few minutes? I’m pretty sure that a minute or two out in cold would send anyone rushing back to heater or Bukhari. "Concerned that Desuups have to brace the unforgiving winter cold, His Majesty's Soelra was bestowed with supply of firewood" It so happened that when lockdown 2.0 in Bhutan was imposed due to community outbreak in December last year, the temperature was plummeting especially in Thimphu. During such time, Desuups came forward in large number in spirit of volunteerism to ensure lockdown protocols are adhered by general public. "When many people got bored locked inside their home, we were daily engaged in such tiring work" The nature of duty during such time entailed carrying out patrolling, guarding certain area, unloading of essentials, to name few. But the guarding of ‘red buildings’ I personally noticed was really challenging.
