Layers around me

Circled, I am with many layers
Layers, they are of people
People with loving and caring hearts
Hearts protective of me

Like the tall sturdy walls they stand
Repelling every evil targeting me
Determined to keep me unharmed
Till eternity, if need be

In the middle stand I
I, who is lucky enough
Enough to have these people around
Around me for this life I have

With all these layers around me
I am sure I shall achieve
The untouched dreams of mine
In but a nick of time

Wonder I sometime, what would happen
Happen to me in their absence
Absence of these people would kill
Kill me and my identity

Only and only if I had the power
I would freeze this ticking clock
Be selfish and not let go
Of these layers around me ever.

A Letter addressed to heaven


Having someone like you to lean onto in both good and bad times have been the greatest gift that god has ever given me. Now that you are gone I miss you dreadfully. This may be too late but I want you to know that I heart you. I know I have never been the perfect daughter that you always dreamt of because I always went wrong almost everywhere. I may not have met many of your expectations but I am still looking forward to fulfilling your dreams. It has been so long since I last saw you but your image is permanently imprinted in my heart. I miss you but I don't envy my friends, when they talk about the things that they do with their mothers because you are that one special person who can never be replaced. I curse my fate when I realize that I can't see you again. Going back home in your absence is becoming tougher each time. Knowing you won't be there anticipating my arrival kills me deep inside but don't worry, you have given me an angel like sister and brothers, who tries their best to provide me with all the happiness and they never fail at that. My sister looks forward to my vacation as you would do had you been here. Did I ever thank you for the precious gift? If i haven't, let me do so now. Thank you for the gift, she is an integral part of my happiness package. You are aware that they has been guiding and caring me since my very first day on this earth and they are still doing so. So, don't worry, I am being taken good care of.
It is 2013 now and I am in college. I wish you were here so that I could tell you so much about the things going around me. You never talked about me going to college, was it because you thought it was too early? It will be a few years when I will leave this college. I am looking forward to getting a good job after my studies and helping my siblings. I have always wished to get a decent job and get you and Apa to live with me but the wind of fate blew you away too far so much so that I can't even get you back despite my sincere efforts. Life isn't as smooth as I wish it to be. Happiness and sadness finds their own places in my life, yet I am living on. Memories and the love from the people around keeps me going. Knowing that I had you at some point of time makes me glad. I am looking forward to meeting you again.

Your Loving Daughter

Just the third BHSCE attempt and SHERDI has another topper.

Sherub Reldri HSS aka Yakgang
The first ever private school in the eastern part of the country. Sherub Reldri (mostly known among it's teachers and students as SHERDI and as YAKGANG among the localities) was first founded in the year 2009 with a very few numbers of teachers, a much fewer number of supporting staffs and just about a hundred plus students (only class 11 students). Located away from the busy town, the school has a very silent atmosphere with the natural beauty surrounding it. A place perfect for an educational institution. The few numbers of infrastructures that it has accommodates the small family perfectly. Harmonizing the scenery beauty of the place, the teachers and the students. As the students come from divergent societies and family backgrounds many new ideas, cultures and values come up together adding more to the daily lessons that they are taught in the classes.
Since it's very first year, the school provided all three streams of higher secondary studies (Science, Commerce and Arts). The few numbers of teachers was the result of the few number of students and the reason for the few number of students was all because it was a new school, unknown to many. As the journey towards producing able citizens started, the principal, proprietor and the teachers along with the students worked hard to achieve it's motto "GATEWAY TO FUTURE". After an year of its establishment another fresh batch of students sought admission in the school along with some CE students, increasing the numbers of both students and teachers and yet after another year the first batch of students appeared the BHSC Examination. Having students coming from different educational backgrounds, the pass percentage was low, which left the teachers disheartened. Yet they did not lose hope to prepare another batch for the same. The second batch of students appeared BHSC Examination in 2011, when a CE student topped the Arts stream from the country. Thus another huge number of students sought admission in the school owing to the good result though the pass percentage was still low. 
Last year was the third batch appearing the BHSC Examination, which was  by then a recognized school. The results left everybody shocked to know that Sherdi has yet another topper (a regular student) scoring 82.50 %, securing the third position from the Arts stream. Being a student of that same school the headline in kuensel, which read "Class XII results declared", left me over excited. Congratulations! Tshering Lhamo, you did us proud. So, Sherub Reldri H.S.S, which once was a school that most of the people were even not aware of its existence is flourishing just four years after it's foundation. 
The principal and wonderful teachers who put in all of their efforts in teaching, wishing the best for their students are the first ones, who should be credited with the achievements. The proprietor must be thanked along with our financial and moral supporters (parents, siblings and relatives). We did get a second chance for education because of the above mentioned people and we are very much grateful for that and THANK YOU for everything. And SHERDI, you have a long way to go and more of these achievements are yet to come.
