Memory of collecting Walnut, "story from my mother"


 Right after the breakfast, I and my mother took a time to crash the hard cover of walnut. I think no one will disagree the good taste of walnut. As and when we were enjoying the yummy taste of walnut, she started sharing her memory of long time ago where collecting of walnut was fashion.

" we won't sleep whole night when there is some kind of gusty wind  and it used to be our favorite weather during walnut season. unlike today we used to have lot of walnut tree around our village. Gonpa, Luechen, Ruzhingpokpa and Bratho near to Rabokmay used to be our favorite place. But today, we hardly find the tree and people who is interested in collecting nut. It is time to reflect ourselves toady that, we lost both tree and the culture",  mother shared me.

As far as I remember, i have seen mother and youngest Azha leaving home as early as 3am towards the walnut tree. I still remember them taking pine  for lighting. They won't light the pine as soon as they leave in the fear of waking other neighbors instead they will walk in dark and they would enjoy peace collection without having compete among other collectors. I heard them being late at collection and would return home empty hand  several times. 
Thinking about those old time makes me smile and i think it is everyone of us who should be responsible for losing walnut tree and the fun.

Thank you

Story of Mr. Tandin wangchuk who weaves cloth for living.

  Have you seen a man weaving cloth in your community?   Well, In Bhutan, we hardly see a man weaving and I agree that most of you have not seen it. Or may I know your opinion on it?   So, today I am going to share a story of a man who found weaving as the most suitable livelihood asset. As a young boy, he used to worry a lot about his life. He used to think of every alternative that would help him to sustain his life until one day when he realized himself growing interesting in weaving. And he is 38-year-old Tandin wangchuk from Tashigang.   He was 3rd born in his family of eight siblings and he had to sacrifice his school days for younger ones. Therefore as a young boy, he learned weaving with utmost interest. It is amazing to know that he used to support his brothers with the little amount he earned by weaving. Isn’t that awesome? Well, he used to weave all types of Traditional Bhutanese dresses including "Kishuthar",  "dwhor" and "karchang" for sale. H

Blogging and its opportunity to make money. Story of my Adsense partnership approval success.

  A Year ago, I started blogging without having much idea about it. I was introduced to blogging by Mr. Nidup Jamtsho, a very good friend of mine and also an enthusiastic blogger (nidupjamtsho.com) and YouTuber ( Mr. Nidup). We talked about  lot of opportunities, an opportunity to earn. Our major conversation used to be about online earning. Bitcoin mining, SFI, Pi mining, YouTubing, and blogging used to be our hot conversation. I would like to confess that I have tried all of them. However, none was successful as I wish but I was never tired of doing it. Frankly, it was difficult for me to hide the feeling of quitting from myself. I used to hide the feeling of quitting and used to involve in money talk with friends to inspire myself. I used to tell my friends, classmate, and family about blogging and the opportunity. I tried blogging from last year and applied three times for AdSense partnership approval. I have to wait for two weeks to get a reply mail from AdSense Company and gett

Journey of talented Nima Wangdi aka chutur15 to Bhutan National Team

  As young as 5 years old kid, he was into football and could not pay much attention to his studies. He would find himself in the football ground along with his friends as fast as a school over bell. At a very young age, he was interested in football and would dream to be a National player of our country. And today I would like to share the journey of Mr. Nima Wangdi aka Chutur15 to the squad of a national football team. He was playing as a right defender until today and from this year he is playing as a defensive midfielder while he funnily shares that position is not an issue for him. 22 years–old Nima is from Samtse and his football journey has started from Samtse middle school when coach Ugyen started training all the kids who are interested in football. He played several matches along with his friends to keep his talents alive. It was in 2011 when he went to Gelephu for National football team selection (under 14) and his dream come true. One day he was called by the vice-principal
