04 June. Twenty six years ago, an angel was born. Without being redundant, let me join the nation to wish Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen Happy Birthday. May this year bless Your Majesty with happiness and health as always. May Triple Gem shower Their Majesties with the choicest blessing and Bhutan continue to bask in the sun of happiness and peace. Thank you Their Majesties for blessing us with The Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck.
Happy Birthday Your Majesty!
|Her Majesty the Gyaltsuen Jetsun Pema|
I flinched every time I visited my blog. The barren blog. I kept saying I will blog Tomorrow. Tomorrow. Tomorrow. And five months flew by but Tomorrow never came. So, this morning I woke up and said No More Tomorrow. So, here I am bringing out a random post.
Last five months wasn’t so sanguine. But some of the most beautiful things of my life happened, too. Heavy duty in hospital. Exhausted, physically and mentally. As if that wasn’t enough, scorching sun soared temperature to extreme 45°C. It sipped tremendous audacity out of me to walk from hospital to hostel. Hostel to hospital. Though it is barely 10 minutes walk. I drank gallons of water. Escaped mess food. Sun challenged to faint me. Pool of sweat drenched me. Often my kind friends rode me on their bikes. Now temperature plummeted to 35 something, and frequent drizzle eased my walk. And countable days to complete my internship re-energize my exhaustion. Every day I wake with a big smile because it is one day closer to completion. One day closer to Home.
So, what was I doing in last five months?
Scorching sun and duty doesn’t suffice my Blogging Exile. Well, I wasn’t exactly on Writing Exile. I was writing. I was working on the first draft of my second novel. I was trying to straighten it up. Every day I was adding some words, some sentences, some paragraphs. I didn’t give up until I finished crappy sixty thousands words. A crappy draft, I would rather call it. Let it be crappy. At least I completed it. I won’t revisit my draft for next few months, and let me read what I actually wrote. That’s all I was doing.
