Dear Cheten Zangmo &
Tshewang Tashi, I can’t thank you enough for
your love and kindness in offering us the wonderful opportunity to meet you
yesterday, Saturday 4 January 2017, on your way back to S/Jongkhar. Your sense
of gratefulness signals your further rise in life. Lord Anukul Chandra said: If
you want to be great, learn how to be grateful. Cicero said: Gratitude is not
only the greatest of all the virtues but also the mother of all the rest.
(A Highly Inspiring
and Motivating Life Story of Cheten Zangmo, Tsebar, Pemagatshel)
wondrous life story of Mrs Cheten Zangmo might be an inspiration to many, as it
is to me. The great lesson I have learned from her life is we can change
anybody’s life through our sincere prayers, wishes and earnest desire coupled
with the person’s cooperation. I had desperately wanted to see the little girl,
Cheten Zangmo, in a noble position in her life and it did happen. This is the
wonder of the mystery of mind. Her entire life story could be filmed into
a good movie. The story is thought-provoking and insight-giving.
MY JOY OF NATURE’S GLORY By
the mystic spell of the two powerful lines of The Daffodils by William
Wordsworth on Nature: “….And then my
heart with pleasure fills, / And dances with the daffodils” through the voice
of an English teacher in Bhutan, Mr. K.C Jose, I felt intoxicated. Since then I
have been in unity with the trinity of beauty – beauty of poetry, beauty of
teaching and beauty of Nature. This is a wonderful gift of Bhutanese education
in the lap of pristine Nature.
