RCSC is Broke Loooo

Now the January month is about to end. This means it is time for me to receive my stipend which is long over due. Honestly by now I should have gotten the amount. Sufficient or insufficient, that amount will be my life  line for the next six months. But with the news of RCSC gone broke temporarily, there is no sign I am going to get the money any time soon.  So RCSC is broke and so am I.

By the way its very meager amount. I know there must be people who would  flaunt that much for a girl overnight or for a breakfast at one go!! But for an ordinary man like me, its like a life blood. Believe me, I have already made so many plans. I wanted to buy those books that are in my wishlist. I also have plan to attend a literature festival somewhere in Jaipur.

I wanted to travel to Rajasthan and meet His Holiness The Dalai Lama there. I thought I would also listen to the talks of H.E Pavan K Varma, the great diplomat cum writer. I wanted to go to Gir reserve and see the Asian Lions. I even thought of going to visit the Royal palace in Rajasthan. Besides I also wanted to treat my non veg friends with chicken curry and veg friends with cheese momo. But for now its all nothing but a another wishlist.

Its difficult.  But I think I can handle such shocks. Perhaps I am used to being broke most of my life. Being broke has become my way of life. I think I am happy this way. For now I have to settle my sight seeings in Gujarat University campus. And I tell you its all the more fascinating place. Its altogether a very beautiful place. No doubt about it. Some people call it the Oxford of Gujarat. well, lets keep this topic for another post.

By the way I call my university campus as the biodiversity hot spot. Every day is a new experience here. I get to see Indian cows that are way bigger then the bulls we have in Bhutan. Initially, I was amazed to see cows with horns bigger than their head. I see goats too. By looking at the size of their breast and nipples, I can make out that they can defeat average Bhutanese jersey cows in terms of milk production. Then there are buffaloes. A lot of them i must say. They look lazy and dirty but they are more adorable animals than some of the cows I have seen in the town. I think they deserve equal treatment like cows from their Hindu owners. Last but not the least, I have dogs in my surrounding. They do not bark but cry and howl!! And I hate them.

But there are few things that worries me a bit at times. Usually in the evenings and nights hours, the loudness of the music in  a near by town makes me think that I might soon require an additional ear drum. And looking at the air pollution in a distant horizon, it makes me also wonder that very soon I might also need another lungs too. Apart from that, life is fun even without stipend. Seriously I will not have to sell my kidney or any other organs to sustain me.

RCSC I fully understand your predicament. I mean it. Send me the money when u have it.  By the way, can someone tell me how many people are there in Bhutan who do not go broke. I am just wondering!!
