Only clean politics will give way for healthy democracy

After almost four months of vigorous battles of ideas and ideology amongst the political parties, the people of Bhutan have finally voted for change. Despite the political turbulence that we had for the past couple of months, the nation as a whole has now come together to respect the decision of the mass. This is the true spirit of a healthy democracy. Druk Nyamrub Tshogpa (DNT) has now been entrusted with the sacred responsibility of serving the king, country and the people of Bhutan for the next five years. But while we embark on another leg of our political journey, there are certainly some lessons we can take from our past experiences.

Linking positivity and negativity: the two opposite sides of human life

Life is not always rainbows and daises. When you flick through social media profiles, you would mostly see people wearing big smiles on their faces as though they have never been through the darker side of their life. But the reality is different. As human beings, we all are bound to go through numerous challenges as we move on with time. Life is not always a bed of roses as it should be. In fact, it is often tough and unfair. Nobody achieves success in life without battling through a crisis. Even the most successful, beautiful and wealthy people on this planet have their own share of problems to deal with. But if we look at life positively, the challenges that we face today all contribute to our overall development. They constantly test our patience and perseverance, and make us stronger every day. They add meaning to our experiences and give us a new life if we really have the courage and willingness to swim through them.
