In some part of our life, we realize the memories of moment which occurred in our life, memories which were innocent yet worth a treasure deep inside our heart. Lately, there was a snow fall in the west and my sister Tseten wrote a status, “Snow fall in Thimphu and it is holiday here”.
I watched through the window because it rained outside. All of a sudden, something emotional knocked my heart. Dates back to 2004, the year that I was in my pre-primary class, when our teacher used to ask in a fluent tune, “What’s the weather today?”, we respond back with a very loud, slow and tuned answer, “It is rainy today”.

My dad and I were travelling a journey, a half-day journey, in an Alto car. On the mid-way, we met an old man signaling his hand which indicated that he want to travel in a car. I was expecting my dad to keep on moving but he stopped suddenly. And talked to the man, “Gatey joni Appa?” And that man was also destined to the place where we were travelling. The man seemed like a cheese and butter seller because the car was diffused with that smell in a little while as the man entered.
We reached the destination and the man was so happy. In the return journey, I asked my dad, “Appa, why did you stop for that man when no car stops for him? He even smelled terrible”. Dad smiled and advised, “Dates back to the late 90s, your grandfather was a very poor man who always use to serve the family by selling cheese and butter.

“…writing this article doesn’t imitate at all criticism to any of the teachers…”
I woke up early in the morning with a slight cough and cold. My dilute eyes, runny nose, and drowsy head, made me no atmosphere to head towards school. But believing that I would learn something, or maybe do something, I prepared towards school.
As a student, I have to be in an appropriate uniform whether I am healthy or unwell. So I wore my Gho, put on my socks and laced my shoes. Reaching school, everyone seemed pathetic looking to my feeble face. “Zo atsara bo za zaw zum thom mey sa, Lungten”, one of my funny mate bluffed. From the way he said, I can make out that he’s trying to make me smile. So even if I don’t want to, for the God’s sake, I smiled at him.
