Village Headman……….

Similar to a Lion who is the King of the jungle, the people of the village always respect and revere the Village Headman who is like a Father to them. In one such village called KEYSHA in far off Bhutan, there lived KUPSA, the village Headman, fairly plump, warm brown eyes, short delicate auburn hair and wore an inviting grin. He allowed a free rein with his people, never once stopping anyone from doing what he or she pleased, though with clear-cut instructions that no one could take advantage of his being kind-hearted and this quality he inculcated with a calm exterior.  A spirit of warmth filled the subtle air and all strife’s were dissolved amicably. 

With the help of his people he organized different cultural festivals when other tribes turned up soaking in the happy atmosphere and loving every tiny square-inch of the sensational festival that created a sense of close-knit ties and encouraged trade and commerce with other villages. Marriages too were performed on a great scale and children too went to schools which were neat and clean. Children too were encouraged in arts and crafts.   Since he was the head of his village, the entire onus of responsibility fell on his shoulders and he worked to the minutest details of perfection.

It became like a ritual in the village, as every evening KUPSA would gather all his men around him and would be seen counselling a few and after all had settled around him, over a light cup of tea and biscuits, very gently in soft-tones and tender smiles address them: ‘I am very happy to see you all. Kindly do not hesitate to seek my help.  Challenges come in many ways but if we all work and support each other a kind of an understanding and trustworthiness develops.  Our essence lies in the smooth flow of operating on a platform of being unified’. Absolutely supportive like a mother hen who is over protective to her chicks, was KUPSA.

There was a complete sense of bonhomie in the village of KEYSHA that was cradled in the folds of the huge snow-clad mountains of Eastern Himalayas very close to Bhutan…………..

  1. It is so good to know that such traditions are followed even today. He is so respected not because he is their leader but he inherits the quality of a true leader genuinely.
    The work he has been able to do in such a adverse condition , s b urely is commendable.
    Lovely post Kamal.

    1. Thanks so much Vishal for your beautiful feedback and yes if you go to see a person who leads his pack needs to understand his people and see what his people need and also that his village too makes progress. This is what our leaders too can do to make our country prosper. Thanks once again Vishal.

  2. Off topic, but wanted you to know I found one of your comments in my spam folder, approved it before responding and it disappeared – off to the post under which it was supposed to live, no doubt, but now I can’t find it.

    I read on somebody’s blog that there was some kind of WordPress problem with spammed posts in error on some blogs, so I wanted you to be on the lookout, in case you notice that nobody is responding to your comments. (I always respond, btw – so if you languish for more than a day or two, I didn’t see it TO respond to). With the high rate of link-spam my blog attracts (well over a million in 5 years), I RARELY have time to dig through the trash.

    My apologies for seeming to ignore you.

      1. I appreciate the suggestion, but I get so MUCH link-spam (millions, according to my site’s spam counter) that I only have time to dig through the top layer unless I can’t sleep yet don’t have the focus for much of anything else. Even then I don’t get far, comparatively.

        Since I *rarely* find more than one or two that don’t belong there, it’s twice as hard to let those spammers steal precious moments of my life.

        I’m just glad that I found your. And you are welcome, btw. 🙂

  3. This is to inform you that I have shifted my blog to and you could have received a subscription mail which is not a scam.
    Please follow me again, and I regret the inconvenience caused to you.
