Book Review title: To sir, with Love.

Book title: To sir, with love.
Author:  E.R. Braithwaite
Publisher: The Bodley Head
Genre: Autobiographical Fiction. 
Year of publishing: 1959

To Sir, With Love is a 1959 autobiographical novel written by E. R. Braithwaite set in the East End of London. The novel is based on true events concerned with Braithwaite taking up a teaching post in a school there.

The author brings in the weave of twist and turns of his fate, on his new teaching job and the nature of different adults he have encountered in his new profession.  

The book takes us through the life of the author regardless of having outstanding qualifications is denied job fit for his education because of his skin color. Thus, he takes the teaching job at Greenslade School in East End London, as that was the possible best job he could get at that time. But, the school's culture presents another shock to him. Having worked in Royal Air Force, Braithwaite finds it hard to be surrounded by undisciplined, unmotivated and unclean students. He tries to teach them but he becomes a victim of their pranks, rough attitude and rude remarks. He decides to change his teaching style. So, instead of teaching them book lessons, he starts giving them life lessons. He gradually begins to prepare them for life. And that's when things begin to shape and his students start responding positively to his efforts.

The book clearly stated the challenges he had faced, filled with suspense as he gets into the task to handle ill-mannered students. As you read on and meet the better end on how he have overcome all the challenges is an amazing. However, left with the thought as to how could he have made such a huge commitment in changing the behaviors of his students is yet another miracle we see through the book angle.

The suspense slowly begins to unfold as we get introduced to the other characters like school principal and his colleagues and all. It is like how one thing leads to the other and finally to the utter surprise of the readers.

However, somewhere in the middle his relationship seems to decline a bit when his senior colleagues have discourage him to work extra miles. However, we find him back together due to his love and care he hold for his students.

Through his own life experiences, the author attempts to actually tell a racial division and discrimination in London that have divided many people during that time. Although, racial discrimination is a notable aspect of the book, it also talks a lot about the London Politics, about the grim human acumen and a culture of how black people were portrayed and perceived openly by the society.

The ups and downs in his life, his interactions with his class and their transformation from boisterous teenagers to young responsible adults is what keeps a reader glued to the book till the end. 

This book closely reveals the relationship between a teacher and the students. It is this journey of Braithwaite that makes this book undying and lives with a reader long after the story ends.


In a nutshell, a committed teacher have the power to turn hatred into love, teenage disloyalty into self-respect and dislike for others into introspection.

Synopsis:
Mr. Braithwaite a rejected technical graduate from many interviews have finally turned to become a school teacher. The rejection in all the interviews mainly came because of his skin color, as he was a Negro. An engineer by profession have finally settle to become a school teacher is all the twist of his FATE.

“It is easy to be called, but difficult to be one amongst many is a teaching job”.

Lesson for Bhutan from Doklam issue.

Finally tension at Doklam was over after two countries have unwillingly agreed to withdraw their troops from the disputed area. But, for number of reasons the boundary issue between Bhutan and China have remained unsolved. Now it is time for two countries to sit down together and solve the matter at the earliest. Otherwise, next attack would add another flabbergast to dragon people and Indian counterpart defensing on Bhutanese side would further worsen India-China relation.  

According to China, road construction over the place in Doklam area is part of their efforts to boost infrastructure and not aimed at any other nation. But, India was afraid that the completion of the road head would give them military power in the area and at the same time Bhutan would face the dominance. Thus, immediately India have taken the case in their hand to keep Chinese troops at bay by sending their military power to defense the border. But, it was sad to learn that New Delhi have claimed that they have fought for Bhutan. Bhutan's security is India's morale responsibility. We feel Doklam fuss is actually between Bhutan and China and not between India and China.

In China's logic, development can underpin each other from unnecessary threats in future. However, India felt insecure with Beijing intention and they have immediately sent their troops to defense the disputed area. 

After a multiple attempts of boundary talks, Chinese government have surprised Bhutan with never heard Doklam to be the disputed land of Bhutan with China. This is an unlearned lesson for us but not necessarily a new thing for Bhutan. Now, we came to know that we have some disputed land piece with China in the North. 

When the world is busy hunting for artificial intelligence revolution, China pressing on boundary issue, Bhutan need to prepare for safe and secure economic progress and need to tighten defense in their boundary. With change in time, Bhutan also need to prepare for possible threats such as anti-national terrorism, oppression and food and water security. Now over the years China and India are testing Bhutanese government's ability on self–reliance and military capabilities. We must learn that indirectly using Doklam crisis, India and China are testing their military competence but Bhutan is at the losing end and our sovereignty is at stake. 

Over two months now, undeniably the Doklam stand-off boomed a serious strategic skeptical between India and China. Nevertheless, beside this backdrop some upbeat have also happened which would pay a better understanding of China in India and Bhutan to look for alternative solution to settle the land knot. There is always a secret behind, why Bhutanese government remain as a buffer state in such cases is that we believe in honesty and by nature we are a decent people and not like Chinese and Indian nationals. We want to solve this land dispute with peace discussion and not by using military will and not involving New Delhi either. We believe that Doklam is an ancestral land piece of Bhutan. We don't want Indian involvement to settle this case. We pray China would understand our feelings and India would spare us to work alone for the greater cause.

But, no matter how bitter things get, we still are a close friend to India and we are no enemy to China either. I feel extremely noble for Indian government for having remembered and remained within the power of Indo-Bhutan treaty statement. We want India to be more humble and cooperative friend hereafter. However, India should know that boundary talk is a home matter of Bhutan. Such issue need no foreign assistance unless it has to end up in the Power of the Gun.

China should know that Bhutan have never asked for Chinese boundary fencing in the North. We are not the Mexican nationals and we don't have any terrorist!

Although, no amount of word can explain the damage caused between Indo-Bhutan relations but we are still very close friend of India without forgetting their help and assistance for centuries. 

Finally, this deadlock have given exactly what step should Bhutan take hereafter to solve this crisis with Beijing. I request Bhutan dignitaries to kindly invite the Chinese delegates for a cup of SUJA and request them to sign the deal to end the long standing boundary dispute. It is time to end this game.  

Although, during this battle I was busy lurking in the corners with my duties. However, as a concern citizen I have realized that this matter is very genuine one and any delay would be hairy. 

We should know that, what we do now will decide how successful we can become in future. Furthermore, this matter will surely decide our sovereignty and independence that we want to pass it down to our younger generations.

It is time we must know and understand that, what China and India are asking for. We are responsible for the right answer. We need to find ways and means to end this game. The truth and ancient history must be the basis for the game. If there are any depth examination on the case, Bhutan should never mind to hire a trustful expert and bring in all kinds of ideas to do this job but at the earliest. This is an inevitable and urgent task Bhutan need to advance first without any support from Indian government.

Lesson for Chinese from Bhutan on Doklam issue.

Fire Female Bird year is not a very auspicious and lucky year for a tiny Himalayan Kingdom. Recently, we have seen some barbaric attack by Chinese government on Bhutanese disputed land piece. It is also sad to see that the government was drag to court for blaspheming the rules by other political party, people being jailed for smoking in the public places and gruesome hydropower depth are some of the pressing issues.  

The most unfaithful was the Doklam standoff. This long disputed issue have brought unprecedented sadness and frustration to both the parties after China have made their illegal entry. The situation has further worsen after Indian government assure their full support to help Bhutan fight boundary war with Chinese government. 

This boarder issue have not only sadden our people around but also have made a difficult journey for media house in gathering some antediluvian data and information. Nevertheless, talking on the matter, till date Bhutan and china have seated for 24TH round of boundary talks and we have seen very less progress from Chinese side. It seemed that China have no regards for Bhutanese sincerity, honesty and the Royal Concern.

Bhutan must know that, why Chinese Foreign Minister was absent for all rounds of boundary talk. Who indeed, is the pawn in the game. They have always claimed that he was jammed-packed with some other pressing matter. 

It seemed that China has some concealed agenda to discuss with Bhutan beyond this land territory. No wonder their agenda could be to annex some more portion of Bhutanese land or wanted to give complete freedom over Bhutan's parental land. Otherwise, this Doklam issue would have not ensued, that too at tri-junction of Bhutan, Tibet and Sikkim. Thus, looking at their weight of attack, China is claiming themselves to have the most powerful military might. Indirectly, China is claiming their own Veto Power on the matter and taking control over the matter without knowing there are other cannier nation looking at them. China have to keep in mind that, no nuclear and biological weapon will going to solve this boundary issue. Since, no record have confirmed that Bhutan is under their power. Bhutan was well under their self-rule, ruled by vibrant and selfless Monarchs before China unofficially invaded Taiwan and Tibet. China should know that, Bhutan in no way is pleased with their economic growth nor with their nuclear dynamism.

China must understand that Bhutan is neither under the control of India nor going to be under any other nation in any condition. Bhutan will going to remain as the sovereign nation and independent state in any matter. 

Honestly, we are not much worried about this boundary issue, rather we are worried about what the Chinese diplomat have in their mind; to give them power or take away their right! It also matters on what role Indian counterpart is playing in between two countries is still very unknown and risky. So, to win this boundary line, Bhutan will never going to use New Delhi for their military power to win this race. China and India must understand and respect that for centuries Bhutan have never invested in nuclear line nor will going to open gym for terrorist. 

This is not the first time Bhutan is undergoing such attack from Beijing. The message is clear on their part. They are ready to pick war with us. India by far is their ultimate enemy and line of attack making Doklam as their main battle field and nuclear powerhouse. 

In the past, Bhutan have fought several battle and no history can prove that Bhutan have invited her neighbor to fight a war. Seriously, China must understand that Bhutan have never invited India to fight this boundary war either. During 2003, Bhutan alone have flushed out total ULFA, KLO and NDFB militant groups from the country's soil. Instead, Royal Government of Bhutan have requested Government of India not to interfere, stating that it was a home matter. But, we are not saying that Bhutan is ready to go head-to-head with China in any case. We don't have any powerful weapon nor do we have manpower to go against them at this time. It is too early and harsh for Bhutan to exercise their handful of military power.


Although, India have been a good, kind and generous neighbor for centuries. China have to understand that Bhutan have never requested New Delhi to send their troops to protect Bhutanese territory at Doklam and will never going to invite them in future too. However, to solve this land issue successfully, India should leave Bhutan fight alone their boundary battle in Bhutanise manner.

Samdrupjongkhar, FCB godown on Fire.

Every time, when I hear about fire incidences, I have a very different feelings, feelings of exasperation. I was never pleased and swayed on any fire incidences so far. Honestly, until now I have never trusted on the cause of any fire disaster either.  

This morning, Kuensel updated me on, Food Cooperation of Bhutan, Samdrupjongkhar on fire. Which lasted nearly for seven hours. The more peeving news was that thousands gathered couldn't contained the fire. 

The more surprising to me was on the cause of fire which was reported unofficially was to be electric short circuit. Why every time our electricity circuit and LPG cylinder being upbraid? What is wrong with our power network and LPG cylinder?  

The big concern lies on the loss of food stored worth of Nu, 100 million plus that was completely raised into flame. Mathematically, the total amount that was consumed by fire cannot be earned by 1000 strong men in their entire life. 

However, the big worry is on survival of our civil servants and school children across the nation. What they will eat from tomorrow when every bits of ration was ruined by fire in the base. It must have occurred due to a human error. Where do we stand in term of GNH mindful index, when such incidences continues to ensue?

For me I feel, this is particularly a very melancholic fire incidences of all. The reason is very simple. Even a year old child can answer you on this, without any penny of hesitation. Firstly, Bhutan is a complete dependent nation to a giant India. Secondly, Bhutan has the least developed economy in the world. Thirdly, it is completely a huge loss for the whole nation. 

On June 24, 2012 –Wangduephodrang Dzong completely gutted and on October 25, 2010 –Chamkhar town raised 66 shops to ground and 267 people homeless for months. However, during this two separate massive fire incidences, honestly I did not worry much. But, this particular fire incidence have left me disturbed and bothered. Since, my concern was on how six schools in eastern Dzongkhag will survive, when their ration was gutted by fire in the base. They were little unlucky this time. Who should take a blame for this?  

Evert time, when I hear or see any fire incidences I always feel something is hidden and my mind always fills with tons of suspicion. I cannot guarantee all but almost all the fire incidences would be a forged one. Otherwise, every house has to be on fire every minute. Since, every household possess power line and LPG cylinder that runs every day. Why every time government properties and offices has to be always on fire? Until we have as serious monitoring system in place, we can never stop from fire incidences to happen.

I am unsure, when next electric short circuit might go wrong in PHPA offices. And I do hope that LPG cylinder in Damchu by-pass office will not storm and explode either. 


This is a serious matter to consider. It is time we must stand out together to put end to such rampant fire incidences from happening in the country, any big or small incidences can cause a serious crisis on our unstable economy and lives of our people. Please, play safe. Stay alert can only safe us from any man-made disaster in future.  Say NO to fire is the only solution!

Setting the National Goal

The training on English for effective communication is far too short but the impact will live on for thousands of teaching fraternity. This five day training has stirred thoroughly on teacher’s spoken competency level. With the spread of English for various reasons at home and abroad, the training have also emphasized on the advantage of being a good communicator as a teacher in school and –beyond.     

Although, English is neither our Mother Tongue nor our official language. But, English being the main medium of instruction in our schools, ministry felt that conducting such PD program for teachers would immensely benefit in making of competent teachers and better education system in the country.  

With the spread of English for political medium, to access information and entertainment and to function actively in the world no more holds the ownership of Great Britain alone. Thus, learning to communicate effectively has become necessary not only in our country, but also to rest of the world. And to a surprise China is pushing forward for learning and communicating in English language. 

Today, English being so invincible it is obvious that even in our context, knowingly or unknowingly it is seen that the usage of English is becoming unofficially official language in all offices.

So, when English has taken such rapid growth every part of the globe, back in our school setting, it is very sure that, English is being practiced and used excessively in our curriculum, organizing school activities and to adjust in the school system needs good English proficiency. In the modern world, it is seen that someone's personality can be easily judged and made with good spoken English and not any other proficiency.  

Although, we have learned English from the very first day of our schooling till the end of university. However, we lack being very effective in this four bands –reading, writing, listening and speaking. This training has mainly conducted to enhance skills on building effective communication skills, barriers of communication, non-verbal communication, public speaking maladies and hitches.

It is hope that all such gap can be filled at the earliest provided that individual teacher have taken this summer PD program positively. I have learnt how to manage and overcome stage fright. From this training, I have realized that the importance of teacher's spoken English language is all to put better food on the table at the end of the day.

The other reasons could be to inspire and motivate our fellow teachers of their importance and the value they carry in the society.   

However, at the same time we have seen lot of mayhem being levitated through social media throughout nation. Some of the mentioned hue and cry was about the unreliable weather, the road conditions and wrong timing. Many felt it was planned and conducted during winter break. But, finally without any hitches the training was over and everyone seemed to be happy and satisfied.

We look forward for continued support from our ministry for all times.

Taxi Driver - The Most Challenging Job in the Market.

This past one week I have been constantly watching bbs Television just to be on the toe of latest happenings. But, to my surprise, almost all the news fed were neither informative nor educational, many were unmannered except for few road network connectivity for commuters due to recent heavy downpour.

All the coverage were, "15 nabbed for smoking in public areas, Druk PNB ATM teller accused of siphoned Nu. 10M, 54 years-old man gets 17 years in jail for raping a minor, etc." 

What is happening to GNH country? 

Yesterday's headline on, 'Aspiring taxi drivers may have to face an interview.' have captured my attention the most. The content of the news has really alerted and touched my nerve, although I am not making life out from gearing taxi string. I feel their feelings. 

Though, I fear for sharing my opinion on this agenda, but it's my long term frank opinion. The three most hatred jobs are, 'teacher, taxi driver and police personnel.' I don't know why people have to hate these profession so much.

Is there anyone who don't take a taxi drive? Is there anyone who don't want to do education, teachers are the inevitable person and the main pillar for the success of education? Is there anyone who don't want law and peace in order and themselves to be well shielded by our police personnel?

Although, the need to sit for an interview to become a taxi driver has become important due to many reasons. However, more important is self-consciences. Given a chance anyone can pass any level of test but this test alone can't define person's integrity, knowledge and inner self.

As stated by taxi drivers, "most people look down on their profession today.", "people feel that those who fail in their duties, as a civil servants, armed personnel or monks become taxi drivers." How can we determine one flash of interview alone is enough to determine that person and change the whole mindset of our society towards taxi driver?

Then, what going wrong with our teaching profession, they have a decent qualification and have taken all kinds of tests and interviews. Yet, we see their profession isn't sailing well in the society today, although many say, 'teaching job is a noble profession.'

Dear taxi drivers of Bhutan, as you have raised your voice over the low graded job you are doing in the society for the society and so does is my job. I am an educator and people have same notion about my profession too. Don't worry we share the same fate. Not only you and I share such poor fate. There are our police personnel who have even vilest fate than ours.

Besides all the hurdles, I know our teachers will continue to nurture minds, taxi driver’s drive their passenger home safely and police personnel continue to guard the nation and uphold laws and justice for all of us. Our country will continue to prosper better. 


Don't forget to Burn and Shine! It won't cost you more.

Digitized textbook for students in pipeline - II

While China is busy nagging supremacy over Bhutan's ancestral land, Bhutan continues to make ineffectual planning.  

Indeed, REC (Royal Education Council) planning onto such a cool digitized textbook is already laudable, a very smart initiative for the day. But, who will bear the entire cost escalation?  

If REC is looking forward to provide quality education, back problems and reduce workload. Digitized textbook is not the ultimate solution. 

Firstly, we must look for better classroom walls, stronger windowpane and superior place to sit on and better infrastructures. I feel lockers for every student in the school is must and slashing unwanted topics is always healthy. 

Secondly, we must think for Smart Classroom Settings (i.e. classroom with WiFi connectivity, overhead projector, audio system, video surveillance system, etc). 

Thirdly, teacher recruitment policy must be upgraded. I mean teacher entry should be for degree holder. Ministry must hunt for competent teacher candidate through series of aptitude test. One teacher can make a huge difference in education system and in the life of student. Therefore, I feel bringing in right teacher candidate is most for the success of Education.  

I don't mean, two teaching colleges and teacher graduate are not doing well. They are doing exceptionally well in the field and –beyond. However, with change in time, and for various social reasons, it is must to have proper degree qualification, and not mere degree in Education field.

This big initiative would definitely bring many positive impact in our boys and girls and would lessen the burden of our teachers. However, I could feel that parents have to sell their last milking cow to meet school demand. Parents who have more than one school going child or single parent have to auction their Kidney, if not their last bull would be unlucky. 

I feel going textbook less curriculum would be absolutely ambitious but an expensive affairs for both RGoB and parents. 

While far powerful country like US and Japan have never thought of such hogwash educational reforms, Bhutan is pushing for this unrealistic project. Is it appropriate this time? Do we have all the luxury to go for such Hi-Fi system, when we don't have functioning PC in school? While Trump Administration is busy negotiating with North Korea for Satellite Superiority, Bhutan continues to make such unsuccessful project to run into broken classroom. 

Should this smart textbook less curriculum be continue to progress, Bhutan's dream for world class education will continue to be unfaithful. Although, the cost of software package developments are borne by RGoB at the initial phase, after all, the service depth goes to all our parents.   

It seemed to me that REC is going crazy upon digitized textbook, which is not at all possible this time. Whatever, implementation part is not as easy as designing by sitting in their office. Before planning such huge project, first they must study and understand the problems at ground level. Therefore, one thing they have to understand is, many schools across the country don't have functioning computer and strong classroom wall. 

I fear simply jumping into digitized textbook to solve 'irreversible back problems' is not the ultimate solution. Rather planning to invest in good system is more important. I am saying what we can do to improve the quality education as well as to prevent back deformities of school boys and girls. I feel, Bhutan is not yet ready for this big Gamble. This would be a complete failure!

REC towards digitized textbook for students

Yesterday I was alerted by BBS news on, "REC working towards digitized textbook for students," which have put me into thousand different mixed feelings and have unpleasantly hijacked my level of testosterone out of order.

I am also the product of Bhutanese Education System. I had the opportunity to have free schooling. I had a rigorous up and down hill walk with almost 3–5 kilograms of books on my backpack. I don't blame for it. Many a times the normal weight on my back sum up when I needed to carry some sport gears, etc. And during summer season the weight on my backpack escalate up with Polythene Plastic. 

What few research findings on cause back and posture problems by carrying school books have become a serious concern for Ministry of Education? What about education system in the west? Do they have all the luxury to attend school without education gears? I feel carrying few necessary learning gears at their back won't be a much problem. What about farmers or unprivileged child, who works round the clock lifting and transporting heavy objects, etc.?

What about some Indian coolie who work more than eighteen hours straight of hard labor in Phuentsholing bus terminal? According to the research statement their back should look like football and they have to die through acute back pain. Does it sound scary? Who is responsible for them? 
Who cares for them?
REC (Royal Education Council) concern over our Youth is absolutely hat off initiative they are heading towards materializing textbook less curriculum. Do we have all the possible facilities, potential manpower, expert on IT and the subject matters to come up to such software package. I am in good faith that it won't turn up to horrendous facts for Bhutan. I hope this initiative won't turn up into World War III. Next I don't want to see our school going children claiming that they can't carry phone and tablet on their back.  
I hope REC is not indirectly promoting such bag.

My Response to Education Minister on what he said on Toilet Cleaning Jobs in Australia.

Past one week, I have seen people of all kinds disposing their poor character in response to education minister's poor choice of Toilet Example which went viral in Anonymous –Facebook page. I suppose maximum could be a Bhutanese living abroad in Australia. I must say he was unconditionally paralyzed with all kinds of insalubrious comments, as if they belong to other planet. Although, everybody has right to fix anyone but not this way. This is totally out of character. There are always ways to put things up for discussion. This possible man-made disaster may not have occurred otherwise –if minister could have been little more sensible in citing such down-graded example and our people have been little more literate and positive. 

Over the years, the expansion in social media has posed lots of risk to self and other. With change in time and mentality, we needed to be very careful and selective in using words and examples. Who knows sometime own family members can be too dangerous to share some information. We must know that things we speak and share can reach to any part of the world within a blink of eye. 

It seemed that ministers toilet example have created havoc and have demean overall morale of our people living in Australia. I feel such example should not doom their status in the society since it is like any other job. If they feel such jobs need to be respected they should not have bothered much. I don’t know why people feel so cheap to be address as a Toilet Cleaner.    

If the notion of our minister is solely to doom people working in the west through his toilet example, we are helpless. But, if it is for the greater cause, I am completely touched with the comments our people have passed through the Facebook page. I suppose it may not have come from a qualified individual to hurt someone's sentiment knowingly. What someone had cooked up –supposed to be his speech to a group of teachers is right. And his intention is to convey that we have no other skills than to take up toilet cleaning jobs in the west, it is completely disheartening. 

Then, our education system and curriculum are failing absolutely, it seemed that our teachers and schools across the country are not doing their job. Even, our minister is also a part of this big failure. And he should be blamed for failing our education system in the country.
     
As an educator, I wanted to inform His Excellency that the quality of education and overall development of our students have further headed down.  All the recent unending reforms that took place in our education sector have produced all kinds of hollow, wasted, deserted, barren, and dry Youth, nothing seemed to work for them. Whatever example we relate to them, nothing seemed to ignite their poor thinking and character. In the first place, I have seen the concept of positive disciplining have failed terribly. I feel something is really missing from our education system. I am not sure what could be that? –mindset or poor parenting or teachers quality or teachers monthly salary or curriculum package.

Everyone expects their child to excel in studies, co-curricular activities and personality. What more has given to our teachers other than their monthly salary? Which is barely enough to run them a decent meals. I know ministry of education has a big say on two, five day training on 21st Century Transformative Pedagogy and English for Effective Communication Training which due this summer break.  

Nevertheless, the actual intention of our minister was to hearten our teachers to dream big, must look into the 21st century, to raise the quality of education and to prepare our school boys and girls on rapidly changing world  with all kinds of skills. But, where is the justice. Where is their social status? How much is their monthly income? How about their daily workload? Where is their right?

I feel simply underlining such issues –on the need to uplift the quality of education alone won't help ease this unprecedented problems. We must work together to understand the problems our teachers faces daily, not merely highlighting on the issues. Perhaps, torn classroom walls and broken school policy won’t help Education to do miracle overnight. 



For a small landlocked and dependent country like ours, education is the most important weapon we can give to our children. I know another set of ‘Toilet Cleaning Example’ would collapse our ministry. It is high time we must come together and start to build a greater and stronger nation with all possible tie. Together we can!
