How Ghosts are mean to be?

Once there lived two friends named  Nado and Kado. Nado was travelling to a village nearby and Kado was coming back to the town where Nado lived. Nado was scared because it was getting dark; he stopped by the bank of river on a huge rock. Kado was coming by. When they saw each other, they both were bewildered and surprised to see each other. They both were relieved to see it was just a person. Both of them sat on the huge rock. Kado was carrying walnuts and he searched for some good stones to break it with. When Nado turned to him offering half piece of the apple he got shocked because he disappeared and was nowhere to see. He thought how a person could vanish in the thin air. Oh my God!, unless it was a…….a…..a Ghost! Run! And he ran away frightened too.

Kado found the perfect stone so when he was breaking it, he thought to offer it to Nado so when he came back but he too could see nobody!  He also thought how a person could vanish without a trace. He thought it was a ghost and ran back as fast as he can to his village and shared the news that he saw a ghost. That’s how ghost are meant to be.

My ultimate moral and belief about the story is that ‘Ghost really does not exist’ but we create it with our own imaginations. Or, shall we put it in this way that – ghosts if they ever exist, then it’s original form is formlessness or invisible?

The Essence Of Life

"I AM NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY I AM, I AM WHAT I THINK I AM. YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE, YOU ARE NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY YOU ARE." 


'Each age is an age that is passing; 
each is born, matures, grow older, and then it fades and dies. 
Every individual misunderstands and is misunderstood'. 
A man comes into this world without his consent and leaves against his will. 
On this earth, he is misjudged and misunderstood.
 In infancy, he is an angel, in boyhood he is a devil; 
in manhood he is a fool.

If he has a wife and family, he is a chum.
 If he is a bachelor, he's inhuman and mean.
 If he enters a public house, he is a drunkard. 
If he stays out, he's a fanatic and miser. 
 If he a poor, he has no brain.
 If he is rich, he has a crook. 

If he has brains, he is considered too smart. 
If he goes to temple, he is a hypocrite. 
If he stays away, he is a sinful man.
 If he gives the charity, it's for advertisement.
 If he does not, he's stingy and mean. 

Then what should we do as individuals standing on our feet? 
Should we feel obliged to yield to such sarcasms? .......................
The answer is : "I AM NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY I AM, I AM WHAT I THINK I AM. YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE, YOU ARE NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY YOU ARE."

GREATEST Experience in My Life

posted Aug 14, 2014, 9:48 PM by Pmss Student   [ updated Aug 14, 2014, 9:50 PM ]

Everybody says that life is challenging with sadness and so on. I also believe on till now but after I trained on leadership I came to know that it is not true. Because it‘s only our mind makes it. Whether we take our life as good or bad way is in our hand. If we think our life is very complicated then definitely our life become complicated- if we ignore our past and just focus on our and future then it naturally our life become beautiful and bright.

Before I didn’t know the actual means of leadership. Even I was school captain but I could not be a real leader because of not understanding the leadership. Now I know “A leader is the one who knows the way, goes the way and show the way.”

I went for training; there were 102 students from five different Dzongkhag. We were all treated, taught and nourished equally especially through the activities. We were divided into troops, organizing a group programs, attending lectures on leadership, life skill, for peer helping and many more. Such activities gained immense knowledge and improved us as a leader and of course in an excellent manner physically, mentally, spiritually, socially and intellectually.

I became more confident, courageous and fearless. The way we were taught to command, lead our own troop, interact and socialize with people with whom we’re never known before. And made us confident to speak and command in the huge crowd.

I learnt about disaster, rappelling, firing, rafting, and exercises and made us courageous and fearless than ever, to face both physical and emotional challenges. During such activities, some of my friends said, “We have to listen to our heart and everything will go well.”I also learnt many new things such as independence cooking, cleaning etc… and help. We were also put through army training and experienced an army life. That made us disciplined, punctual and healthier.

Lastly, I would like to thank to our king, my scout master Thinley Tobgay, Coordinator Sir Pema Wangchuk, Matron, Captain Keunga Norbu, Lieutenant Rinzin Dorji along with our instructor Lopen Phurpa, Lopen Tshering Dorji and Lopen Wangchuk, cooks and each and everyone in the camp for teaching us the value or caring for other more than our family. This is my memorable experienced in my life which I never experienced before. My big hope is to share what I have learnt in training to my fellow scouts.

Optimist

posted Jul 21, 2014, 3:04 AM by Pmss Student



The distinguished peoples have dissimilar potentials in having triumph over something worth. The prospect and the complications they look in makes the sense and what is more, taking pleasure in something.  It is not necessarily the case that being optimist is better than just being unhopeful. Generally speaking, you should indeed learn to be hopeful and emphasize good part of a situation rather than the bad part.

It is certainly the case that optimists have the tendency to expect best upshots. They will recognize all the future conducts and keep their dignity and willpower as their objective at all times. The great achievers of the world are optimist, perhaps this is because they might have envisaged the future ventures; believe that they will undertake it. The real hero in this world may be them. They always strain to see good things forward, loved by all and respected by crowd.

How to be optimist? Trying to be optimist is not a formidable job. All you need to do is lead a simple and motivated life, more importantly you should work on it. But remember that you will need to find the difficulties in every opportunities rather than finding opportunity in every difficulty. If you take in the real value of optimism you will find an invincible summer in the midst of winter.

To conclude, pessimism is of intellect and optimism is of will. The one with only enthusiastic heart will be the prize winner. You will see everything beautiful, including what is ugly. That’s why the important practice of the life is that you should practice in reality which is none other than being optimist to remain your good deeds in this humanity.

THANK YOU

Coping With Stress : Poem

posted Mar 18, 2014, 3:16 AM by Pmss Student

The moment you are in tension,

You will lose your attention.

Then you are in confusion,

And you will get into irritation.

 

You will spoil relation,

And you will not get cooperation.

Then your blood pressure will raise caution…

And you have to undergo medication.

 

Instead understand the situation,

And try to think of solution.

Many problems can be solved with discussion,

And will work best in any profession.

 

Don’t think it is just a poem,

But if you understand my intention,

You will understand the concept of tension,

And never fall into this confusion.

A Teachers Thought

posted Mar 17, 2014, 10:07 PM by sangay yeser   [ updated Mar 18, 2014, 3:07 AM by Phobjikha mss ]

"To not become happy because of praise
To not become unhappy because of blame,
To support one's own good virtues",

This is the character of the supreme being" As rightly stated by the great master Nagarjuna, the essence of the stanza should be one of the core working principles of all the teachers in Bhutan.

A question- Why feel the need to focus on the principles and approach? 

I personally feel that in the present world of fast change, WE THE TEACHERS need to have a very strong moral character for we are the refiners of the society and the prime role model of the future leaders.
Praise is all along there with our job responsibility, but why feel happy and proud as we all know that our core responsibility is to take up the lead role in grooming the future citizens living in the subject of criticism.More often then praise there is the blame, thousands of eyes watching and millions of fingers pointing at us with the cries of education quality, teacher conduct and more dishearteningly the question of the quality of the ourselves the teachers.

But rightly said by the great master, Why become unhappy and disheartened? We all know that we work in a field, a field filled with dedication,hard work,sincerity and of all a field that illuminates the world of unknown and  those who point fingers at us are unaware of the work load and hardship we face.Therefore bother less of their views because what matters the most is the service of loyalty and dedication that we render to the Golden Throne,the fulfillment of the promises made to our people and more importantly teaching the art of living to those innocent souls who joined our institutions trusting our qualities and conducts. 
So dear friends, don't let what the world tells and talks  about us effect our working mentality, do our share of responsibility with utmost dedication and sincerity because at the end what matters is what our heart feels- the satisfaction we derive from our effort put into making a novice student write and learn the basic alphabets and seeing these students growing to become responsible citizens. So hats off and 

CHEERS TO ALL THE TEACHERS!

Google Drive and It's Advantages

                                                           

Webmaster

Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service provided by Google, released on April 24, 2012, which enables user cloud storagefile sharing and collaborative editing. Rumors about Google Drive began circulating as early as March 2006. Files shared publicly on Google Drive can be searched with web search engines.

Google Drive is the home of Google Docs, an office suite of productivity applications, that offer collaborative editing on documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and more.

Google Drive offers all users an initial 15 GB (originally 5 GB) of online storage space, usable across three of its most-used services: Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos (aka Picasa Web Albums).  

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Source: www.wikipedia.org

ICT In Education

ICT in Education


Why do we need ICT in Education? Was education not happening before computers came into existence? The shift is necessary because this is the age of information and technology, an age that requires that teachers facilitate the gathering of this information and not merely teach.

Information and communication technologies (ICT) have become commonplace entities in all aspects of our life.

Teaching with technology is different from teaching in a typical classroom. Worldwide research has shown that ICT can lead to improved student learning and better teaching methods. A report made by the National Institute of Multimedia Education in Japan, proved that an increase in student exposure to educational ICT through curriculum integration has a significant and positive impact on student achievement, especially in terms of “Knowledge Comprehension”, "Practical skill" and "Presentation skill" in subjects like mathematics and science.


ADVANTAGES OF ICT TOOLS FOR EDUCATION

  • Through ICT, images can easily be used in teaching and improving the retentive memory of students.
  • Teachers can easily explain complex instructions and ensure students' comprehension.
  • Teachers are able to create interactive classes and make the lessons more enjoyable, which could improve student attendance and concentration.
  • ICTs improve students’ research skills by encouraging them to look for information on the Internet. It enables them to research various topics by seeking relevant books that could be digitally available online. The Internet also contains search options, which expose students to diverse ways of obtaining information. 
  • ICTs by their very nature are tools that encourage and support independent learning.  

With these points, we realize that the importance of ICT in education cannot be denied. Lastly,  although the ICT cannot replace books or classroom education, it is one of the best substitutes for those who wish to gain deeper knowledge on every subject under the sun.

Good luck!
