Private TV Channel for Bhutan


We have shown that we are capable. Our private papers are testimony to this. Initially no one thought it was possible to sell newspapers other than Kuensel. But now Bhutan already boasts of four privately run papers. And we are made to understand that some more are in the offing. This is very good news to us all. Other papers should take this as an opportunity  to work harder and better themselves. 

But for now private Bhutanese channel is what everyone wishes for. This in turn should give very good competition to BBS. And unless we have a channel choice, we might have to continue watching hourly news programs and hearing shooting non-stop public announcement that sometimes stretch more than five minutes.

What do we want in the new channel? 

Definitely, Bhutanese people want to have new, unique and better programs and updated news, live reporting. Because right now we are made to feel that even if their building is on fire, BBS newsreaders will continue reading the prepared news report. In Bhutan news reaches people very fast even without media.

We want some long and more satisfying Live programs. Today, however important some discussions are, BBS appropriates just 30 minutes, half of which painfully passes in the introduction session. Yes, we understand some discussions are continued after the news reading, but the whole charm is gone when they continue after half an hour. So much preference to news reading!

Give us something satisfying, something detail. Hopefully, all that will change once when we have a private channel daring to compete.

P.S: No intention to discredit either Kuensel or BBS and readers should read it as my random, untamed and candid thought process at work.

  1. It is even more painful when the tenents do not have the privilege to choose the local TV service providers.

    Tenents are on the mercy of their landloard and have to be satisfied with the TV line chosen by their landloard.

    Our society is very undemocratic...and in such a scenerio who is to be blamed.

    God bless us all.

Utpal Academy - Bhutan's first All-girls High School

Academic Block Welcome to Bhutan’s first all-girls school. Isn’t that wonderful news to all our parents? Certainly, as a parent of a one-year old daughter I am excited about the coming of a school exclusively dedicated to the needs of girls. Our girls need special treatment, which we can for sure entrust the responsibility to Utal Academy, Paro. Dinning Hall I really like the name – Utpal – in Buddhist world, Utpal is another name for lotus flower, which is believed to grow from mud and yet blossoms into a beautiful and majestic flower. It stands for purity and many deities are depicted holding flower Utpal, more prominently Jestusn Dolma, the Goddess Tara. Symbolically, it also stands for the transformation of our girls. What an apt name for the school! Hostel Room The Principal’s message posted on the academy’s website promises providing our young women an “opportunity to participate fully in a wide range of extracurricular activities to develop skills and qualities that

Unblocking

  That in the end is what we make out of it. After all, a block is something everyone suffers once in a while, but they have overcome it by doing more and more regularly. Such is the power of practice – you can already feel it coming back. Such is the power of consistency - imagine how much better it would come out if we do it on a more regular basis.    I am a firm believer that we need practice but have failed more than once to keep up to that belief. Now I believe that everyone does this regularly. That's why, I need to invest more time and effort in honing this skill. I know I have deviated a lot from my original thought process, and I am aware of it. But I am also doing it with a purpose. And that's to say that I am going through a lot these days and have failed to express myself more effectively.  

Fighting RCSCE-phobia

Now that the orientation is over, graduates all over Bhutan would be hunting for information and scratching through all our history books. And in absence of readily available information, it is going to be so frustrating for many. There are are aspirants like Tashi.P Ganzin who are already seeking divine intervention- whether to appear or not to.  This is the biggest moment in a graduate’s life – it’s time to learn and relearn so many things about the home and the world. And they need good attention from their parents and relatives, guidance and advice from elders. I am sure all 1300 graduates who attended the NGOP may not appear RCSC Common examination, but we need to inspire and encourage those that brave the odds. Many of my friends are waiting to take the exam of their life – their future will either be made or broken when RCSC declares the results. And my full prayers and support are with them. They are terribly afraid of it to say the least. I heard while there are no prob
