“I am 66 years old now, and I live with my wife who suffers from a hearing impairment. I have lived in Thimphu for 23 years. We have been married for 37 years, but have no children due to my infertility resulting from an injury in a basketball match at Lungtenphu in Thimphu.

My journey as a patriotic citizen began at the Royal Bhutan Army training ground in the 1970s as a drummer (bazawala). I defended my motherland against the militants (ULFA) under the guidance of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo in the 2000s.

I have never been wealthy. My biggest mistake in life was failing to study well when I was given the privilege to study. Working as a security guard is the only work I have been able to do to make a living after my resignation in the 2000s from the military post of Corporal (Peljab). After I left my job at the Druk Agro Production unit in Babesa, I started my current job as a security guard at Norbuling Rigter College in Paro.

My wife has always supported me through all my endeavors and we work as a team for a better future together. With time, I am scared to think about what her life would be like if I passed away. This thought haunts me all the time. I am always afraid for the day I will lose the love of my life.

I have always been very dedicated to my work, my country and my dear wife. They mean the world to me. I encourage highly qualified youths to join the Royal Bhutan Army as I felt I never ended up being as useful a soldier as I could have been.”
