The Book Thief – MARKUS ZUSAK

I can’t go on without talking a little bit about the book which changed my life.

So the book titled “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak has been my best book of 2014 (last year). Everything is usual and ordinary in the story but the main character Liesel who lived a very bright life in dark world is what inspired me till the moon and back.

So the story took place in Germany, during Hitler’s time when Jewish people were on their breath. Their lived a girl, Liesel, whose mom was a Jew but she wasn’t. Liesel begins to live with her Aunt and Uncle after Hitler’s greatest mistake begins.

When Liesel gets adapted to the new community, she meets with an adult Jewish boy who is kept hidden in the basement by the Uncle and Aunt of Liesel.
What inspires me deeply is the friendship between them. Though the Jewish boy is kept hidden in the basement of house, Liesel always makes him live life the real way; bring snow in the room, a chalkboard, everything that makes life worth living.

“A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.” 

There lives a white haired boy in their community who loves Liesel.

“The only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy that loves you.” 

The boy in the basement leaves the community one night when everything remains in peril.

Germany was never a good friend of foreign countries during Hitler. When war breaks out, the bomb gets dropped in their community. Liesel’s Aunt, Uncle, white haired boy, his dad, mom, everyone takes their last breath and Liesel gets left in the dark world. Something learned here is that, the white haired boy never told what he felt to Liesel, and it becomes too late by then. Life’s uncertain, so never leave anything for tomorrow.

Liesel never lives a broken life. Instead, she begins to write everything that has happened to her and her life, everyone she met and departed, everywhere she went and left. Her words inspire millions of souls.

The story is told from third person’s point-of-view. The narrator is the Death.

He ends the story saying, “I’m always haunted by Human Beings”.

Beloved Osho

Library time! Who won’t get excited? We get to pick up the book we like, read the way we like, sit the pose we like and simply enjoy doing nothing. So my choice of book this week was Osho’s “I teach religiousness, not religion” for my love of inspirational books. So I can’t wait to read that book after reading the title.

And I began, “Religion is a dead rock...”

All of a sudden, my heart sank. I thought it was a tame. Who wouldn’t think, anyway, at least in my country where religion is everything for people?

But I didn’t stop. I wanted to know more about what Osho really has to say about religion.

What I really liked the most was his ability to express every feeling in simple words. And of course, his writing fell on my interests. He has an interesting way of criticizing religion. According to him, there’s nothing/nobody called God. God is just a belief. And belief is a greatest fiction, he suppose.

What I really found out was that everything he wrote was against everything I have heard from somebody till now. He says that meditation is not about making your mind disciplined but leaving your mind aside.

He taught me how to live when I am alive. But he didn’t teach me where to go when I die!

Before You Go To Heaven

Before you go to heaven
Make sure you are contented
Make sure you are satisfied
Take my words to the God

Before you go to heaven
Make sure you helped someone
Make sure you came as a blessing
Not just as a human being

Before you go to heaven
Make sure you loved your mom
Make sure you saluted your dad
From whom you were motivated

Before you go to heaven
Make sure you planted a flower
Make sure you decorated the eyes
And made world the next heaven

Before you go to heaven
Make sure you were alive
Make sure you made a difference
That lives for eternity

Before you go to heaven
Make sure you lived
Make sure you lived an original life
Rather than someone else’s life

Before you go to heaven
Make sure someone still wants you to stay

Everything Has A Value

It was Thursday. I woke up not so early. My dear Mom already got me breakfast. I felt all the luck for this life. I just felt.

I wore my Gho, put on the stocking and shoes and was ready for school. It was 8:00 AM, time for ‘Some Unnecessary Passtime Works’ (SUPW).

We assembled at the ground ready for Morning Prayer. It was the Teacher announced the captains to collect Iron Tablet that actually made me write this.

[In the class before first period]

“All of you should consume this”, class captain didn’t seem much determined. All of us were given a red tablet. I carefully observed everyone. Only one girl has swallowed the thing with lots of difficulty. Others simply avoided it putting it in their shoes, wrapped it in a piece of paper and jumped to the bin...


I was wondering why government is wasting a whole range of dollars distributing gem to undeserving ones. That single tablet would have saved a precious life in South Africa.

The problem with us is that we don’t know the value of small things that could make a big difference.

I feel pity on our government because of us.

[So what’s necessary?]


Actually, we were born this way, brought up this way, shown this way.
But you have the ability to change. You can value small things. You can show others that everything has a value and everyone has a purpose.

Lao Tzu was never wrong, “A journey of a thousand miles start with a single step”.

The change begins with you. Yes YOU!

God Told Me That Story

Science proved that Dreams are the recap of what we have done, what we have thought or whatever we came across; shortly, anything that has gone. But religion says that Dreams are what lies ahead of us, what is about to happen.

I believe in both.
Let me write what my Journal say on 4th October 2014:

“The morning is getting colder in Zhemgang every day. Today, I had a strange dream. In my dream, I walked by an empty Assembly ground and right at that moment when I stepped on the middle of the ground, a man called my name from behind. And when I looked back, I saw four female staffs and two male. (It was empty here just few seconds ago). That man said, “You don’t have to go. I will request someone to come from there.” Everything was in mystery. And I don’t remember what happened then...”

Recently, the centralization of schools kept everyone busy as a beaver. Out of nowhere, people from Kidney Foundation come in our school. Therefore, some students and teachers joined the program in MP Hall when some left home. Some teachers were at the Assembly ground dividing note books to be distributed in classes.

Just thought I could help a little and went to those teachers. One male teacher saw me and then called me. “Hey Lungten, can you please go to MP Hall and get the key of Science department”. I walked fast to MP Hall when I stepped right at the middle of Assembly ground one male teacher called me from my back, “You don’t have to go. I will request someone to come from there”.

I just realized on the spot that this thing has happened to me in my dream somewhere before.

“God told me that story”.
