Poor me! - waited taxi nearly for thirty minutes and couldn't get one in the Babesa express high way after visiting to friend’s place.
I'm very sure there would be some thousands of taxi plying
every day every-where in capital city today and particularly the number of taxi that
had passed within my stand in the road too was many. Yet, none of the taxi I was
trying to stop was listening to my call.
Honestly, I was little pissed-off with the notion our
taxi driver has today from few of the un-wise lots. Since, they are injected/guided with little common outlooks that every
youth dressed-up like Korean, punk or hip-pop are measured to be bad or
notorious. We cannot guarantee and punish all youth in the name of few notorious youth or any of the individual travelling during night time.
Having stand for nearly thirty minutes on the road I'd
many mixed feelings. Then, I was vigorously reflecting the back. And I could recollect
certain incidences of past years - taxi drivers being robbed, bitten-up,
killed, scared with weapon and not paid the fare and so on especially during
night hours by our few tarnished youth.
Having known the fact, these incidences or happen-stand
shouldn't mischief the honest youths/individuals in any state.
The other feelings I’d was, any of the individuals dressed-up
unique is sure to fall under substandard group in every body’s eye and to our
taxi/cap drivers the most. Because, it was imbibe common notion that those
dressed-up like Korean/punk lend-up in fight rather than paying fare after
reaching to their target.
In the name of few of our youth, I was literally
punished, punish in the cold weather of Thimphu. I guess, with this action there’re
many things to learn in life, in fact, lesson to life.Perhaps, to own a private
car, dress decent, unsafe to travel during odd hours in urban areas, not wise
to send our young children out with friends and educate our youth on social
Thus, finally I was left with no other choice than to
walk all the way to home on foot. But, again walking alone during odd hours in
Thimphu has become unsafe.
The recent incidence of homicide case had pushed my
entire nerve into flame until I reached back home safely. Its in everyone's eye capital city became unsafe/unsound place
to live or survive these days. Yet, everyone of us rush to this place wisely or
unwisely with all known facts behind. I must call expensive and unsafe Thimphu these days.
Where in the
name of the financial echo is the life of thousand innocent lives stand?
I felt the need is urgent to consider the re-conducting of exam for leaked English paper II. Otherwise, thousands are missing their different career tracks, since the mark obtained in
English determines their overall performance standard.
Now, all the rumors of redoing of exam have come to its conclusion after the BCSEA
board recently announced for not conducting re-exam for the leaked paper.
Thus, it sounded to me that the call is over and the game is played just for the sake. Other way - this has given us the clear picture of where Bhutan would lie in near future. Besides that - the decision taken would definitely divide between
poor and the good students.
But, here my point is not to defend or go against any of the concern agencies
rather my point is just to benefit our children those who did not get access to
How fair the justification is true over the leaked paper? Can it be fair
to award the marks simply looking at English paper I?
To this fact, thousands of concern parents and students felt the
decision taken by the panel members was a complete un-fair and the poignant
one. In particular, I felt the ultimate losers would be our students from the deprived
back-grounds. Because, these are the students who did not have access to any of
the facilities – studying in the boarding school with the
limited available resources, inadequate parental guidance, references books and
I felt it was not the decent reasons to defend against for not
conducting re-exam for the leaked paper just in the name of financial crisis. As simply examining past papers and
awarding marks wouldn't be enough to justify all of this and their hard-work for whole year. How far is true to this analysis
sufficient/valid and to what point does it stand and to what extend it would
it be possible to cancel the re-exam for leaked paper, when
thousands of life is already losing their stand, their beautiful life?
It is high time for us to think on the decision taken before things go
in disorder. Did our concern agency taken care of the thousands of innocent
lives? How far is fair to our children coming
from rural back-ground and deprived family? Or to those who did not have access
to questions before exam?
In any reason the punishment should not be the same for those who did not
have accessed to questions.Whatever may be the decision it shouldn't harm any
of those innocent children studying in rural areas. Perhaps, they should be given extra motive than the students studying in urban areas with
all the facilities – mobile phones of their choice, access to net, references
books, nutritional diets and so on...
As many of the children are from the rural background and I’m sure to
those rural lots, the only ways to score marks in English is just by
reading the syllabus text judiciously. I’m sure the decisions have already
disheartened thousands of hard-working and the sincere students across the
If English I can compensate for English II, then there's no point having
separate text book containing different genre for learning, teachers and other
resources. And I'm sure that the hard work/time/energy taken for the whole academic
year is of no use otherwise.
Now, the panel had decided to award marks for English II equal to the marks obtained in
English I. For me,
whatever maybe - this decision would dis-heartened many decent and hard-working and the students those who did not have access to questions.
Nevertheless, the factors like the financial cost, hassle to students
and logistic should not be compensated with the life of thousands innocent life. So, what we all need is to re-conduct the exam for more fair and justice to save thousands of lives.
