“Over 86% of the students passed the examinations this year.
Less than 15% of the students who attended the examinations will be taken into the Royal University of Bhutan.
Over 8,500 students sat for the exam last year”
The above statement is an excerpt from a page on “Class xii results out, Science tops” in Kuensel webpage. It is very clear from the statement that our Government has very less and negligible care for the youths of Bhutan or I am not very sure if the media has not completed its sentence since it just talked about passed percentage of students, Less than 15% absorbing in to the RUBs and the total number of students who had appeared the examinations and abruptly putting an end to the article without saying anything for those who wouldn’t be in that 15%, while 85% of the readers of this article from class 12 passed outs would be those who did not qualify for this 15%. In fact this article is like a sand paper rubbing on a wound than a plaster to it. Though it makes 15% of class 12 passed outs happy, it makes 85% of them unhappy which is totally against the claim that we boldly make our country to be the world GNH country. I feel sensitivity must be taken care in every field.
In another article it says “With the class XII results out, the scholarship and student support division announced that there are 232 slots for undergraduate scholarship slots this year”, of which 30 will be offered in RTC. Some other sources say of some special scholarships, ‘More scholarships under TICA-http://www.bbs.bt/news/?p=873 , Special scholarship launched- http://www.bbs.bt/news/?p=6071 , etc.
15% of 8500= 1275 students which will be absorbed by RUBs, it says less than 15% but let’s take it15%
X% of 8500= 232 Scholarship students and
X% of 8500= x, which is 100 students (let’s assume) getting in to other sponsorships.
Therefore a total of 1607 (1275+232+100) students are absorbed without question.
Then what will happen to remaining 6900 students? Yes, I believe some may join private colleges and some may get absorbed in to some jobs but still than some significant number will remain behind with their eyes searching for their hopes and wandering about the city constantly.
Those are we unlucky boys and girls. But do not worry, we can always find a solutions ourselves. We need to start with something. Everybody has great equal potential but the thing is that we do not explore it, so it remains dormant and dead inside of us. Or do not call it fate and stay asleep because fate is something that we can make. Now let’s explore ourselves;
To start with, the most important thing is ‘Beautiful mind set’.
Most of us fail to get a grip of our own thoughts. As a result we land up doing unacceptable and notorious activities in the society disrupting its peace and harmony. By beautiful mind set, it means thinking good thoughts and doing good things. Good things are impossible to define at personal level but here it refers to socially acceptable and plausible activities.
The second thing is ‘Patience’.
No matter even if we are jobless but do not be impatient. Even if we start doing something today, the result may not come tomorrow; everything has its own specific period of time. Patience is one of the major elements in making our lucks favor us.
Now coming to the so called ‘job’ it is not necessary to seek job under anybody. The days of a month would seem so lazy in desperate need of money. Those who seek and get offered, it’s good that they were lucky but those who are rejected are luckier from one point of view. You start with something new!
With something new that will blow the minds of people miles away, leaving them aghast and nothing more could they say than wow!
How to do or start with something new or what is that something new? This doesn’t only apply to those jobless but those who are in jobs can also try it.
If it is something new that you invent, then it is excellent but it will be excellent enough even if we start on something that already exists. Something new is- Create Jobs!
Doctor – available
Engineers- available, etc. then what is not available? Think?
Facebook was never there before. Somebody created and designed it; now he earns billions. How was GNH proposed? It’s a prestige now, there are so many people working under it. Like hotmail was created recently and there onwards million of users. New games are proposed every day.
Create something new ‘xxxxxxxxxx’ that will attract a good number of customers. To do this we need to do a survey on human psychology and situation. Its not hard to do it if we know what people need now and what likely will they need in the times to come. We need to take advantage of the situation and people’s interest at most and design everything according to it. Never try to fight with your rival instead we must fight with the situation and it will be more effective.
Invent and design a new game? Will it be national specific or international?
Do you want to design wings on your body and fly? Yes we can do this. We must have faith and determination in what we do. In modern days people do not inspire us to do something new instead they mock and criticize for doing such unbelievable things but you carry on. Do not think it’s impossible and nobody has done it before, believe me, everything has its first time.
If you have a broken mobile, go on repairing yourself. Or do you sing? Go on singing. Read books and start writing, write poems, movie scripts, sometimes let your fingers roll over the strings of a guitar because the so called magic or the so called interest doesn’t lie within our selves, it is out sourced, it comes from outside.
Sleep for a while, wake up afresh and imagine. Imagination is greater than intelligence. Imagination will make you creative. newton, Albert Einstein and great scientists always imagined before they invented something new. Go, travel deep in to your thoughts and soul, there you may see the world resting on your fingers!
