Be true to yourself

There comes a time in our life when we really want to do something or feel something. But somehow we are scared that something wrong might happen and we back off. People say take risk or fly off the comfort zone. But does it really penetrate into our minds or is it just empty words barking at us. Despite of reading inspiration quotes first thing in the morning for more than a month now the only thought I have in my mind is am I running after a wild goose chase or am I missing out something?
Sometime I run out of words and even opinions. Sometime I even don’t know what is good or bad or right or wrong. Everything that is happening becomes acceptable that sometime I wonder what is happening to me.   Am I too scared to be judged by others if I say something?  If we pour out our disappointment then someone would definitely say not to give a shit about it. But are we really strong that way, are we tough inside out?  Do we not really care when others pass judgment to us? Or do we pretend t…

“Staro Riga 2014”

“Staro Riga 2014” Festival of light is a part of Riga carnival which stands for happiness and change.  It is scheduled for five evening from 14 to 18 of November 2014. It presents the idea of transformation and lighting up of the city, building, windows and façade. It tries to provide people with the feeling of adventure, exploration and discovery.
 I was excited when friends told me that the city looked so beautiful. So not wasting much time me and my apartment mates headed to the city. When I entered the city I felt like I was entering into a different realm. Riga is not a big city, but it is a beautiful one even during the day light. At night when the city is decorated with lights the view is splendid. There was showcase of the work by various artists from Latvia, Lithuania, France, Portugal etc showing their globally acclaimed work during light festival. I don’t know how other people felt but I was so amazed. I started to think what would we do if there was not greatest invention l…

Flickering light

She stood there for a longer time Gazing at the closed door before her Not knowing whether to turn back or wait further But there was no signal of light from the other
She debated with herself several times  Pretended it will be ok to wait for sometime Despite the fact that there wasn’t anything left And whenever she was reminded about it she wept
In fear and confusion she walked away finally With a final gaze at the closed door sadly It was scary for her in the beginning  Has got used to see her hopes draining
 Time strolled slowly for her but for a while As she adjusted to her new welcoming life The flickering light grew brighter with each passing days And she could not help it but to be in gay
There was twinkle in her once sad eyes Music on her once forgotten song And in the rain she danced openly Enjoying every moment of her life fully
And I stood there speechlessly Feeling happy for my friend ceaselessly And relaxed did I walk away leaving a note That said enjoy my poem from t…

Energy efficient construction

The population of the earth is approximately 7 billion at present.  It is estimated that it will double every after 60 years [3].  With the number of inhabitants increasing there is more demand for energy to provide comfortable and suitable living standard. On the other hand the primary source of energy such as oil and natural gas are limited and are at the verge of depleting.  Many have forecasted the time when it might happen but it is sure that it will happen in the near foreseeable future [3]. In some parts of the world like Bhutan a very small country where the oil and natural gas are imported from outside, the prices of these resources has been increasing annually. This indicates that the demand is more while the supply is less which leads to increase in price.
Due to the excessive or inefficient use of energy, there is emission of green house gases. It was found out that energy consumption alone in the residential building accounts for about 70% of global carbon dioxide emission…


Sometime when life gets harder I will be there for you my brother Like the forever and always promise We shall stand together for days to come
Sadness is a part and parcel of life But with your criticism and humor  I forget to dwell in it sometime For you make me laugh like never before

We played pranks, laughed and cried  Hide and took blame for each other’s mistake  Saving from mother’s thunderous scolding For it will prick you right in the core of heart
You took responsibility at such a tender age I felt deeply sorry as you had to sacrifice a lot But never did you made us feel anything Such a selfless and kind person you are

 Though you appear merry and gay outside I know deep down sadness lurks in you Because we have listened to our Walter mitty thought. And I pray sincerely because you deserve a lot.
