Velentine day


Have you ever tried to find, what is Valentine? besides sharing of gift cards , love , making proposal, and so on. 

Here is a short history of velentine. In ancient Rome, The Emperor Claudius II was pagan and has his strict law which prohibits Romans from marrying. It was around 3rd century back. During that time, Roman Catholic Saint St.valentine converted himself into Christian and started helping to marry those soldiers in secret Christian ceremony. It was during those times when many Romans where converting themselves into Christian. However, valentine's secret act was later revealed by Emperor and he was jailed. While imprisoned, he cared his fellow prisoners and  jailor's blind daughter. It is believed that Saint Valentine restored jailor's blind daughter before his final execution  for going against Claudius rule. He left his love message signed "From your valentine" to jailor's daughter. It is believed that he was executed on  14 February of year 270.

It was not more than 200 years later when many of Roman has converted themselves into Christian and started proclaiming 14 February as St. velentine's day in his honour. To honour his legendary act, February 14 is celebrated to mark importance of love, relationship and courtly love. While some believes that this meeting is usually for reading love poetry and play games of flirtation.

I hope you won't leave the site without mentioning the word to your valentine partner.

Thank you.

Dashain celebration - Dorokha, Bhutan

   I am here at Dorokha which is 3 hours drive from Samtse, Bhutan. I am lucky that I got an opportunity to experience Dashain tika. It is my first time celebrating Dashain. Yeah! It is interesting and lively. But more than a celebration, I realized that it is a time to reunite family members.  Dashain is celebrated all over Bhutan, but especially in the southern parts of the country. Observant Hindus will keep all 15 days, but it is the tenth day, known as Vijayadashami, that is the true highlight. While all Hindus, and even some non-Hindus, might take part in Dashain events, it’s technically a celebration of the “Shaktism” sect within Hinduism, which focuses its attention on worshiping various goddesses, such as Lakshmi or Kali. The first nine days of Dashain symbolise a nine-day battle between good and evil – that is, between the goddess Durga and the demon Mahishasura. On day one, a special pot (kalash) is filled with holy water and sown with seeds that will sprout during the days

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
