Wangchuks and political shpere

Friday, I was on leave from this blog, which you might have observed. I failed to write and upload anything – be it a diary of the day. I would have done it should I be able to subscribe a Druknet line at home and manage a computer. Many in this country still not been able to have easy access to the Internet service – which in turn reflects the underlying poverty against the nation’s propaganda that per capital income of the country has drastically improved over the years.

On Friday I was in a meeting with the leaders where we discussed our strategies for upcoming election. Already there are three parties announced that leaders from all parties are putting their efforts to win votes in 2008. Two parties have invited me to join the politics but both proposed me to lead the party at the district level. Sure enough, since I am not ready for national elections, due to age and education, I myself prefer to be in district. But before this, I have to decide if I am to join the politics.

People like Sangey Ngedup, Yeshey Zimba, Jigme Y Thinley, Sonam Tobgay, Khandu Wangchuk etc and etc are on the line to fight for a seat in the government after 2008. I told them, I have not yet decided whether I would be joining the politics because I still have to continue my education.

One idea I made up was student politics. Making students habituated to politics from college level itself would instinct them the quality of leadership when they grow up. I did not float the idea because political maturity is yet to gain here. Status of political parties are yet to be finalise, there are no symptoms for formation of sister organisation of the parties like the student wing.

I was uninterested to join some of the parties due to few reasons. Basically, I would rather not join the politics if people like those mentioned above took over the leadership. The simple reason is that these leaders would never allow the country mechanism to democratisation.

Sangey Ngedup is brother in law by relation to the king. His party would forge alliance with the monarchy for all interests. The palace has already given green signals to him that he might be the favoured candidate to palace for prime ministership. His relation with India would also favour him. I don’t like people being selected for positions just because they have influential position not by personal capacity but by relation capacity.

The other one is Jigme Y. Thinley. I even feel ashamed to write his name here. If you have not let you know who he is. Probably, few of you know of him as a person who coined the concept of Gross National Happiness. He sold himself for the shake of position as minister. The king kidnapped him for handing over the copyright of the GNH philosophy to palace which in turn he received the position as minister.

At other hand, he had received a good gift from king long ago. The daughter, whom he calls his daughter, is in fact not his. The daughter is of Jigme Singye. Jigme had sexual relation with the current wife of Thinley in early days from whom a daughter was born. Thinley agreed to marry this woman and get appointed to the position Bhutan’s representative in the UN. I don’t know if the daughter knows she was born out of Jigme Singye’s sperm. Are there any doctors who have the courage to check DNAs?

A ngolop site stated that Yeshey Zimba is the grandson of Alu Dorji. This is new for me, I had not found out anything about him. Alu Dorji, you might have studied the history, was one of the brave patriot who fought bravely against the wangchuks before these notorious wangchuks announced themselves as king. Zimba forgot what the wangchuks did against his father, otherwise he would be one of the powerful rulers of Bhutan now. The western Bhutan would have been under his regime.

If the friends who were present on the meeting see this blog, hopefully, I would not be invited into politics yet again.

    i enjoyed a couple of posts, frankly…but this blog is beginning to read like an al queda’s ravings now…given the choice, i would have this blog flagged, but that’s all right. democracy’s not freedom of speech per se. look at the great USA. do you think they are free to say whatever they like? try this at the US and you’ll be decapitated. you talk of lack of so many rights in bhutan and go on bragging at the ‘wangchuk’ and all, but don’t you think you are going over board a little? look at thailand. thousands of websites are banned there…how many websites are blocked in bhutan? NONE! and you talk of fashion tvs and other such rights. do parents want fashion tvs? it’s a soft porn…my dear buddy…

    i will be back to see if you are fit for mental asylum…maybe guys like rizal and all are as crazy as you…oh that reminds me of something. maybe you are also suffering from diabetes due to endless fasting…ha ha ha…

    This is the propblem with you guys that when someone talks about ther rights to live or some nacked truths but hidden ,s/he sound like al queda
    The commentator above talks about US and Thailand forgeting the fact that Bhutan is still ruled by some barbaric and blood thirsty people like wangchuk.
    The person also talks about the decapatation of US forgeting the fact that popicy of US has already gone ashtray.

    As long as I am concerned about Rizal, Hats off! To him for his courage and vigor for his people and country. He is not the one like the above commentor who always keeps after chaising the flies of wangchuks and that will be the be end of history for person like him/her.

    Good analysis.

    Let me clear it straight way.

    This very Blog is stationed in kathmandu.

    Your meeting with the leaders is perhaps your dream and the reason why you missed to write the diary on the day.

    JYT’s kid is none of your bussiness.
    Why should any one check your dna to say who you are.

    A ngolop site reported alu dorjee………
    You are a ngolop too by the definition of the word. And if you accept to use it.

    Any way
    Keep writing the blog.

    Keep lies at minimum.
    Truth wins it takes time.

    Dorji Wangmo, the first queen was married to Kuenley Dorji , the owner of Hotel Jumolhari who spent many years in prison following the arrest at New York Airport with huge amount of illegal drug in early 1980s. Kuenley Dorji was arrested at the JFK Airport while travelling on diplomatic passport as he was the First Secretary in Bhutanese Embassy Delhi. After they were stranged Dorji Wangmo alias Ongo lived in Thimphu in a big house with her sisters above Thimphu Hospital. During those days her son from Kuenley Wangdi used to study in Bethany School, Darjeeling where the kid died mysteriously after falling off the second floor window. Those days Ongo and her sisters were already in relationship with the fourth King. Bhutanese who are in their late fories and early fifties now are very well aware of this fact.

    Rose is right about the kid being in Bethany Darjeeling because I remember him falling from one of the dormitory windows to the ground floor. I was about 8 or 9 years old and lived in the same boarding school at that time. Does anyone know where the three sons of Dorji Wangmo’s elder sister are as I was friends in school with them until I moved to another school? Their names are Sonam Topgay, Phuntsok Tshering, and Thinley. My email id is underdog@witty.com
    Nice to read stuff about Bhutan. Reminds me about the time I spent there as a child.
    Thanks..

    yyou have no knowledge of polotics if you think of those people in personal terms….

    and YES his KID is none of your business….how is tht related to him being a leader?? Its called skilll….leadership skills that these people possess….

    so mind your business…whn u talk bout family affairs and what not…because….dont think you would want people to be postin stuff bout you or your family….in these sites?? would you?

    alll rumors or facts….if you are not involved or actually witnessed all of that….just stay out of it! and regarding the leaders of Bhutan….well….time will tell….and all hve their strengths and weaknesses…so you cnt compare one with the other….

    cuz they are all positioned to run our country- some of them have what others dont and some lack what others have….. chill on making private life public…esp of others! doesnt give a good impression of you….

    we are talkin polotics here…and not whoz kid is who…and what relationships they have or had….in the past…wht matters is NOW and the future..so think polotics…instead of blaberin bout nidups or thinley’s lives or anyones as a matter of fact!
