The Boss Eater

What do you expect when you hate your boss and the head in turn hates you?
Total destruction!!!
 Destruction: Disturbing the whole of the administration, disturbing the relationship, disturbing the personal happiness and disturbing dreams in the sleep. And you have the feelings of pushing the person to the farthest corner and be away from. But life is life, as the person passes in pestering, objecting and all that you don’t like to hear. 

I have worked under seven heads and wonder how many more in my life before I too become a head! That is quite an atrophy, I have never liked to creep on someone else life and never will they. Some heads were as good as head should be and some heads as bad as a snake (I have a sense of senselessness when I see a snake). Please note the point of writing this: I have neither personal grudge nor envy of the success but having received some ill treatments from some heads with no reason, I smeared.
 My mother told me when I joined my first job, “Whatever you do, do those please heads.”  The question still lingers in my knotty head, “What that pleases me?”
And my mother was right, after seven years of job under different heads, I came to a conclusion that everybody does not pleases the work but pleases head and the head pleases the subordinates with opportunities and grades in return.
However, I am kind of radical person; I please my services and customers with not much botheration of the head. Some heads clap and some slap on my face. Difficult to understand, colleagues say, follow the middle path-not too much, not too less, just rickety-tick over, so-so work. There is no destination for them but floundering on it. There is no hard work but soft lips’ work. There is no distinction between sincere and insincere.  There is no world of own; the world belongs to head. The head is the curry cooker, frying all kinds of vegetables in the same cooker. The head is his/her own way and that co-workers must follow the rigid set of his/her philosophy. There is no growth; a father wants his son to become exactly like him and then would father become happy and on the other hand, the son has no extension of his life. It is a reprobate death.
It is sad to know, there are many heads of these kind, I think their trainings on management, administration, etc, and what so certificates count not, when they have any basic value of head.
I think one responsibility as a leader is to admonish the troops who fall out of line and not appreciate who fall out from the line. I also think head should be an archetype of where he is living, broadminded, acceptable, committed, responsible, etc (The qualities and principles of heads). But as I’ve seen and learned from my many heads it turned out to be an absolutely contrary to many heads. Because of this so-called bogus heads, everything gets spoil, the taste of the curry is made because of the salt and head is like a salt. When this taste adder sometimes plays trick with his/her subordinates is what is fishy. I have seen the incidences of bullying subordinates; threatening to award less point in the final rating, and even to the point of abusing minorities. And blah blah blah…
After these entire mistakes, we say, “Head is always right.”
“Is it one head or many heads that is right?” I have a question to the readers.

The Dragon New Year

Isn’t New Year celebrated with pomp and joy by every race around the world?
99% is to it.
 BUT, What is there to celebrate, when we have multiply antagonisms and complications that are arising? Like new diseases, new terrorist groups, new WMDs, new problems. Nothing great to celebrate. No new joy and no new peace. What is new in the New Year? I have no New Year fever, no excitement but only worries about new problems.

Why is New Year called ‘new?’ ‘New’ should be flawlessly new. I will have no new cloth, no new shoe, and no new meal. Nothing new. No gala, no new friend, no toasts of loved one, no new love-ah!  I am no New Year passionate; I am as usual as I. Nothing is great to rejoice on that day.

Years come and go. It is just the mark of the end of one year and the beginning of the next year and is the day on which the year count is incremented.

On that day, called the New Year, I will miss my dear and near ones far away in Bhutan. Alone here, and would be reflecting the delighted faces and the scene of togetherness. But my new year resolutions keep me high, though I may not stick to any one of them. And it can sometimes hurt to plan ahead for 2012.  “New Year brings in new promises,” as many would say.

And I would like to leave here with a New Year poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

"What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year."

Blog and block from blockage

There are many worlds in the net world. The world of twitter to twit, the world to blog for the bloggers, the world of face book for face time or-faced and Google to goof off with unwanted information and yahoo to tell you tai-ho-a. And other scores of inactive terms carping to click.

Blog. And what I would like to called, ‘Blog and block from the blockage’ of knowledge is the recent site I am using and it will be of another addition of weight - the weight to my body as well as weight to my mind! Sitting in front of laptop and writing, reading is rewarding for intellectual growth but it blog, twit, goof…what's not in the body.

Anyways, hope to have good time; what matters at last is not health and wealth but good times. Thank you Monu Tamang, my sincere and dedicated student for introducing. I believe in you and am proud of you.

Everything is Possible. Just Go For It

Good time reading readers.

I am… ya…I am neither Martin Luther king, nor Shiv Khera, nor Buddhist philosopher, nor Helen Keller to lecture on any topic. I am Simple Saacha Dorji, an original piece of earth.

I write, “If you have dreams, then you can do it,” and this is my small stuff which has titillate throughout my life and here I write about, dreams, aims and aspirations.

“I Have a Dream,” the Martin Luther king’s speech in the gathering in USA was a piece of speech to bring welfare and happiness of the American people. This was his dream.

And did he fulfill his dream?

 Of course, it turned out to be very shortly.

Likewise, every one of us has dreams, aims and aspirations. Once you are in this earth, your dreams generate like rivers. And if you are not able to fulfill these dreams, you tend to lose your head. And that is where you will have lots of shadows in your life.

Everyone has so many questions about dreams and aspirations. What is my true dream? My most important dream in my life? How will it come true? Where will I go? When will it fulfill? Etc and etc. Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist) wrote, "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."  I think by now, you just have to dream and begin the journey, the journey from your heart.

I remember I had so many dreams. When I look back now, my dreams would have all become real. When I was eight years old, I had a passion in singing. One day, I sang in front of my class. Who (the hell) were there to bring my dream to an end - teachers and students? I became fun bag. From that day, I was really brainwashed and every time, in my mind recurred, ‘I can’t sing well. I can’t sing well.’ And the next time, when I was asked to sing, I wanted to disappear underground. (Of course, I’ve other dreams realizing slowly now -I’d like to write in the next article about this)

We have many hesitations in our dreams. We are frightened/discouraged, if once, if we couldn’t perform well. We expect readymade result. We don’t believe ourselves and don’t have courage to move on. These are walls. The walls between you and the future world.

In the movie, “Field of Dreams,” there was a different type of dreams portrayed. In the movie, Iowa Farmer Ray Kinsella, had a dream to build a basketball court in an air/empty space in the sky. That dreamt too, he didn’t discuss and ask to anyone. What kind of dream is this? It actually is building a castle in the air!

Do you know your reality? Do you ask and discuss about your dreams frequently? Or, are you afraid of people who will mock at you with your dreams. Or, you truly believe in your dreams and worship your dreams and don’t want to discuss with others? Ask, and you will get answers for all these rhetorical questions.

I realized now, my singing dream could have been fulfilled. Don’t you think so? A force pulled me down so that I had to leave that dream. Force? Yes, forces are our teachers, our parents, our environment, and our friends, who influence.

Dreams are like seeds. If we put those seeds in the soil properly, it will surely grow into a fruitful harvest. But who bothers; forces again!

The inside force is stronger than exterior one. Is that so? Yalp. That’s the fact. So we must believe from inside; should have discipline and determination. We are all powerful. We can also climb the highest mountain. We can also make alcohol out of water. Here I am not talking about magic; I am talking about dreams come true, your inner heart, and your inner dreams. If you have interest, hard work, courage and God in you, whatever work you do, everything will come true. You can go for that.
