Meeting with Momola


My friend momo la, bent down by ages

Every morning, while circumambulating the library, which is filled with priceless relics and monuments, I always come across elderly people, some of whom were walking with the help of their walking sticks. The momo la in the picture here is the one to whom I was most connected. Nevertheless, not even once, I dared to ask for her name and family! I had just taken her the way she was; may be the right way of choosing one’s friend? Continue reading

Early Morning


Day break scene from my one bedroom window

Lately, there came a trend in my life when I would have distorted sleep and the next day gets spoilt. It may be because of my age.  It was said that one tends to sleep less as one grows old! Well I don’t know! Whatever, last night was one such night. In the middle of the night I could feel myself turning here and there. When I opened my eyes, the first thing I did was to count the number of hours I sleep in total including those twist and turn wake hours. Somehow it comes somewhere around 6 – 7 hours, the required amount as per many experts. Continue reading

Meeting with Colleagues

3rd December: The day was usual except for the unprecedented encounter with my three colleagues from TCV Suja near Nechung Gompa while I was on my usual circumambulation.

We stopped for a couple minutes’ conversation, through which I came to know that they had come back after having an audience with His Holiness at the main temple early in the morning.  Having heard that and taken for granted that they were tired, I took them for a cup of tea at nearby Library canteen. Three Ginger hot Lemon for them and one milk tea for me. Continue reading

Finding Neverland

The previous day, after my hard day’s work I relaxed myself for a cup of tea as soon as I reached my room.  After my usual customary things at room, I watched “Finding Neverland”, a movie based on the life of playwright JM Barie who falls in love with a widow, mother of four children.  In the movie, the main hero never misses writing his journals. Every day, he would write daily journal, which ultimately made him a great playwright. At once, I made up my mind to write atleast few journals which would keep me in touch with writing and jotting down my feelings and emotions. Earlier I had tried many to write journals but failed somehow. After watching that movie, somehow I felt the importance of writing journal so that I can share my feelings with my readers, especially my children.

A Personal Thought on TPD

imageMy present job as the Teacher Professional Development (TPD) officer, offered me not only a whole new opportunities for knowing various Tibetan schools- which I should be knowing earlier being a teacher though- but also a good opportunity to reflect myself as a teacher, which is one of the most important clause in the Teacher Professional development. Frankly speaking, as far as my photographic memory is concerned, I seldom reflect myself as a teacher which I now realize form a big blot on the face of my career as a teacher for all these years.
