"May 2 and Our Teachers' day"

 I took a deep breath before I wrote this piece of article. And I request everyone to take a deep long breath if you come across this article. Think of all the teachers who had touched your life because today is a day to pay tribute to our teachers who have been playing with chalks and dusters, escaping meals to prepare lesson plan, gathering teaching materials from limited income they make and list goes on. We often say teachers are the one who light us in the darkness but we must not forget that they burn themselves to light our path. We should know that smoke is part of fire light. Like smoke troubling you when it enters your eye, teachers might have scolded you, punished you, insulted your behaviours and you must have felt bad about it. But I know that you have great respect to your teacher and therefore today is a day to forget all your bad thoughts to your teacher and pay your genuine respect.

Why teachers' day on May 2 in Bhutan while other parts of world celebrates on different date? In Bhutan, Teachers' day is celebrated in May 2 coinciding with birth anniversary of His Majesty The Third Druk Gyelpo Jigme Dorji wangchuck, who is also known as father of modern Bhutan in the history of Bhutan. Without a question His Majesty The Third King is the first person to introduce and develop so called modern education. One of his important legacy is establishment of Teacher Training Institute (presently known Samtse college of Education) at Samtse. And today, thousands of teachers graduate from SCE are serving across the nation as valuable citizen of Bhutan.

Therefore, today's day is much more than cake cutting ceremony and few dance programs but it is day to pay respect to Mewang Zhing Fep Jigme Dorji wangchuck and our selfless teachers across the nation.

* Today As I bow myself to Kuper of our great King, I am taking this special opportunity to wish all the teachers across the nation "Happy teachers' Day".

Disability: Reflection from graduating social work student

  Hello Readers, This article contains self reflected observation and personal changes I experienced after going through the model called  "FSP 405:Working with persons with disability" as a part of my bachelor degree in social work at Samtse College of Education. Reflection 1: is   it disability or the society that makes people disabled? The concept of disability is dynamic and it can be influenced heavily by the individual factors and societal factors. The question of whether disability is primarily caused by the individual’ condition or societal factor is a complex and heated debate for quite long time. Well, I stand with fact that some disabilities are result of innate physical or cognitive limitation, it is the societal response to these limitation that determines the extent to which individual are disabled. You and I as a part of society, it is our responsibility in constructing environments, systems and attitude that enables the live of all people. So, how can we s

Beauitiful hike to Dungtsho (Conch lake) via phajoding, Thimphu

  Dungtsho trek is getting popular among Bhutanese. Even if not, it is true that the trek to lake is getting popular among the people who live in Thimphu. The trip is favorable for honeymoon among young couples, pilgrimage among elderly and week-end energy for office workers. It is two days journey from Thimphu- Motithang base camp.  Many travelers prefer to halt a night at Thuji Drak ( holy camp among young monks) and I recommend it unless you have strong legs to withstand speed of horse. On the next day, it is advisable to start the journey to the lake as early as 5 o’clock to enjoy the beautiful view of early sun on green summer mountains. What else you need to know? If you are planning a trip to Dungtsho, you might consider talking to someone who has been there recently to get updates of the journey. In case you could not find   and worried, please consider following essentials while you are planning trip. A pair of good and strong shoe to keep yourself moving throughout the
