I got myself registered for the one day refresher’s course (firing drill) at Deothang after consulting with my husband since I didn’t have any other important work at that time. I was apprehensive because I knew that most of the Desuups were busy with “Wang Duty” in Phuentsholing and I hardly knew the Desuups listed for the refresher’s course. To my dismay I could see only three female Desuups listed when the final list was uploaded in the Desuung group page in facebook. Nevertheless I kept my hope high because I knew I was going to make new friends and gain some more practice in firing drill.

The tiring journey through the crowded Assam road dimmed as I neared my native place. The greeting into the valley by the sound of black necked cranes made the scene all more mesmerizing. My five year old nephew was travelling with me to see his grandparents for the first time and was full of questions about the new environment and the cranes. He was asking about the Chorten Kora that he had seen in Noezhen Express in BBS and wanted to know how big it was. He kept asking whether Chorten kora was as big as some chorten (stupa) that we passed through on the way. When I said it was bigger than that, he spread his arms and asked whether it was as big. I told him that he would see it in few minutes as we were nearing the place, he kept stretching his neck to see further in front of the car.
