Master Tshering Tobgay

Tshering Topgay
Tshering Tobgay. Not outstanding. Not very bright. Why do I say this? He aspires to these attributes but is clearly limited in his potential. In studies and in sports. He finds comfort in large groups, usually the more aggressive boys. His desire to get ahead makes him unpopular among classmates so he seeks the protection of a gang.

Under the right influence, he is a good boy but it is more likely he will seek refuge in the class bully. He made many students unhappy with his behavior when the school bully took him under his wing. Mid way through school year the school bully failed and was expelled. Tshering went into hiding for a while fearing revenge attacks by other boys he had antagonized.

Luckily the zero tolerance policy that came into effect after democracy has protected him from being beaten daily.

He should do fine in life. He is a survivor. He will find the right connections of people and attach himself to them. This will be his strength and his weakness. He will rise but have no mind of his own.
