In earlier days though I wrote articles yet there was no as blogs or forum to post and to share the stories concerning of their communities and the villages and also without the proper basic tips of writing, the articles seemed not refined in many ways.
Well I am now a frequent blogger in the Gewog administrative officers blog writing the articles on the development activities, the minutes of the GT (Gewog Tshogdu), the budget allocation for the activities of CDG (Capacity Development Grant) and others which shows a very clear transparency and the accountability particularly for the usage of the GDG and other planned developmental activities.
It is from the blog which I write that literate people residing far from their villages can always have access of the stories and how their elected local leaders make the decisions, the yearly budgets, the prioritized activities of their communities and other information.
Tshering Penjor, a literate resident with a dingy smile says, “I know very clearly the every decision made in the GT (Gewog Tshogdu) and may be better than some members.”
It is also from this blog that they can comment, suggest or even can criticize on it.
It can also be a future reference for the earlier articles posted on the blog.
Some interesting stories can also be shared and posted like the khuru match played amongst the chewogs and the villages of the Gewog and it was also to commemorate the 60th birth anniversary of the fourth Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singye Wangchuk which is to be held annually in the Gewog apart of the tradition it promotes in the community.
It was a small tribute marked for such important occasion with the trophy and cash prizes awarded to the winners and runners up teams by the Tsirang Dzongkhag National Council Member Dasho Kamal Gurung.
