Finding Me In the woods sky above and ground below feet on a dying tree. Thirsty leaves drenched in the wetness of the sky’s love. Fingers trace a throbbing vein, brown, green, and the space in between filled with lines and letters words and pictures- characters of a film. Breaths of time Sighs of […]
I think of her and she laughs at me from among those sunflowers. Her hair blows across her face, her moles are tickled. It’s in those freckles. Or the twinkle in her eye. Her heart is simple. Honest. Open. Free. I wonder when I’m gone If You will think of Me?
*After my last experience with some people of the Bhutanese film fraternity, I thought it would be some time before I would be inspired to write about any other Bhutanese film. I was wrong. So, here is a REVIEW.* Karma, the film, is a journey, both within and without. Karma is also the name of […]
This morning I woke up thinking about the kind of Losar message I would I like to share on my Facebook page at the start of the new Lunar year: what am I thankful for? What am I looking forward to? My mind has been fully occupied for the last twelve hours in a monologue […]
The Weight of the Word The 3rd of October will forever be etched in my mind as the day I was gagged. A certain film director called me and threatened me about a post on my blog about Bhutanese films called “Bhutanese Films: Interrupted”. It was not a professional review of Bhutanese films, although some people […]
“Gyalsey- The legacy of a Prince”, is in a league of its own. The film is quietly brilliant.

No annoying songs that just explode onto the screen, no slapstick jokes, no dramatised deaths, in short, all […]
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nqnfbwv1WE&feature=youtu.be] This poem is the first that I’ve recorded in this manner. Inspired by the need to be objective, especially in my line of work, and also as a person, I sat down and wrote it in a few minutes. My husband worked on the technical bits, and we hope you like the end product, […]
I don’t know why I didn’t take pictures. Whipping out my phone to capture something that is interesting is as normal as breathing for me. As I wrote the last sentence, it hit me why I didn’t take the picture. I hesitated, and then dismissed the idea because what caught my attention, today, was a […]
31st May was the day I received the announcement (first called, “No Vehicle Day”, and later, “Pedestrian Day”) along with directives for panel discussions on BBS to raise awareness. Raising awareness was up everyone’s alleys (include the stakeholders), but implementing it? Even before 5th June, there was nervousness. Would things go as planned?
It is an addiction. An addiction that is in no want or need of a cure. It began innocently in 2000 because of a German player who would do the most wonderful hands-free flips in the air. I wrote his name down in my diary: Miroslav Klose. There were two others: Ballack and Kahn. It […]
