I started my schooling at a very tender age of 8 in Ura. -vibrant, naughty and full of mischief. I disliked schooling days for many reasons. I disliked schooling because I had to go hungry most the time. Other reason for disliking the schooling was our late headmaster. He fancied lashing then teaching. At times the lashings were so strong and severe that it hurt my legs, limbs, ears and ribs. I remember limping to my class. He flogged many students for apparently no reasons! But dared by all, I never shared about this predicament to my parents back home. (In today's world, this could have very well cost him his job...he could have even faced imprisonment!) I graduated from there in 1994 with first division 6th grader.
In 1995, I was transferred to Jakar High school, some 50 km away from my home and parents. My immediate concern started to change. I was more worried about the economic pressure me and my two little sisters were posing to my aging and impoverished parents. In order to bring some economic relieve, I remember looking for friends in my village who could join me in becoming a monk! At the same time I also remember working day and night during my winter holidays so that I could earn my own school expenses.
But however with the passage of time and space, my luck took a twist. My elder brother -who was economically more sound in my family came to my rescue. With his heartfelt support I was successfully able to complete my 10th grade with ease and comfort in 1998 with distinction.
But sadly in 1999, there was a small storm in the cup between me and my brother. He never showed up green signal in supporting my studies. But thanks to him and my parents, I foresaw many options in my life. Becoming teacher was my priority. However, like a silver lining in the dark cloud, one of my closest friends came up with all his motivating words to pull me through my plight. (Thank you Dear friend Galey for this and for everything)
Midway through my 11th grade in Drukgyel High school, one of my elder sister -whom I took to be helpless and unemployed, came to shape my destiny. She promised me that she would never let me and leave me alone. With her support, -both emotionally and financially, I was able to do very well in my studies. I completed my 12th grade with a very decent mark. It was there, I met my life long partner, who is now mothering my three little daughters.
In 2001, I had the privilege of going to Sherubtse College; -the pride of the educated lot and the then only college in our country, to pursue my higher studies. It was from there I earned a B.Com Honors degree. This degree paved my way in becoming someone in my life. I appeared for civil service examination in 2004 and upon successful selection, I took up year long course in Management in RIM in 2005. I also got married to my wife the same year. Finally in 2006, I joined my service.
Today, I am a very fortunate man serving my country and King. I am a very Happy family man too. I have 3 daughters, which is too early too fast for a man of just 30 years.
Thank you, God, my parents, my King, my teachers, my brothers, my sisters and my friends for making me who I am today.
