Commemorating 60th Birth Anniversary of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo

The whole nation is in a celebratory mood for the nation witnesses the 60th Birth Anniversary of no other than our Fourth Druk Gyalpo, the 70th Jekhenpo, Trulku Jigme Choeda and Queen Mother Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck. There has been array of events happening every now and then in every nook and corner of the country to mark this joyous occasion. I believe many more are in stock to showcase the best of the best in the upcoming days. Of all the initiatives, People's Initiative in Celebrating the Sixtieth Anniversary (PICSA) is the flagship of the nation for commemorating this mega-event.

The celebration takes every form and shape - From  cleaning and greening to dancing and singing. Sadly, I have just been a bystander to all these events.

When the whole nation is in this frenzied atmosphere, I feel discontented to realize that I made no tangible contribution  to any of these events. It is not for the lack of willingness, but for the need of my indulgence for the upkeep of the national asset - the hydropower plant-  which keeps me occupied at all times. Everytime, I prevent or restore the machines from breakdown, it gives me atleast a solace to feel that this is all I can possibly do for the nation -my small contribution to mark this glorious tripartite event. Hundreds of us work late nights in the hydropower plants to ensure that the bulbs of thousand homes are always lit, the foods of thousand families are always cooked and every shows of the PICSA are never disrupted. We might not make it to the limelight for what we have done, we shall remain as un-sung heroes, but all it matters for us is to feel proud for what ever we are doing. Long live the Druk Gyalpo, the Jekhenpo and the Royal Queen Mother.
