Be declared anti-national!

“These things are not interesting and I don’t understand also,” Karma said, shrugging his shoulder, obviously a bit irritated at being dragged into the discussion.

Till he found a job, Karma said, he was content watching movies and hanging out with his friends. He heaved his two shoulders as if to say “you-know-whatever” and dragged his five feet and five inches frame with him.

Some youth though had an idea. But their idea of Bhutanese politics unfolding was hinged precariously on the Red and Yellow parties standing for elections next year.

“I will vote for the yellow party next year,” said a 20-year old, Tashi Wangmo, a class 12 dropout of Nima Higher Secondary School. “Yellow party won the election this year, didn’t they?”

Sonam Choki, an 18-year old Thimphu high school student said: “I know that democracy means people’s participation. By the way is the voting compulsory? Do we also have to vote?”

(With kind courtesy from Kuensel.)

Hope you find this an enough instance on how disgustingly the people were suppressed in this country for centuries. The government did not allow listening radios. In 80s, the security personnel raided the villagers who keep radio in their house. In 1997, the king himself ordered to dismantle the TV discs in the country.

The youths did not find any means to update themselves with the political changes around the country. Two great revolutions took place in India and China, changing the whole political course, yet the people in Bhutan remained off-beat.

The government did not allow people to read newspapers. Reading a newspaper meant organizing protests against the government, the king, the foolish king, who thinks TV spoils his people. The curriculum text books filled up with ‘hymns and prayers’ to him. As you go through this, you might have, if read enough of the dictators, come to realize that only people like Hitler, Saddam, Mussolini forced people to read book in schools with full appreciation of the rulers. Gandhi never asked his people to appreciate what he did, Lincoln or Marx never did so.

Now as the employment problem rises up, the tyrant tries to pick up the unemployed youths and join the politics. At the same time, the mission has already begun to recruit the failed students into militia to intensify terrorizing the people. The youths are forced to join teams of politics after the military government failed to provide with job opportunity with various pretexts such as police clearance, NOC.

Picked-up and dragged into a workshop is fundamentally a foolish way to teach people politics. The open society with freedom to discuss everything encourages people and the youths join politics. While the tyrants block bhutantimes.com to bar young enthusiasts discuss the politics, it drags the unemployed youths into room enforcing the unwilling people to join the game.

Does this mean, you will be stateless if you failed to join our mission for ‘mockery democracy’ to empower the palace and the illegal chieftain!

    The Bhutanese tyrants try to over come one mistake by commiting another. After all truth is truth. It comes out somehow or the other. They are always trapped in a vecious circle created by tyrents. In fact it is time for them to realise that voice of the citizens can not be supressed at all seeing the examples of New Democratic Movement across the globe.
    The present political parties formed under the tyrant jigme’s instructions beyond the curtain are meaningless and will not cater the needs of the freedom and peace loving people of Bhutan.

    Hey…do they live happily ever after?

    I don’t know where you come up with these thoughts, but to put them in a genre, I’d suggest “bad fantasy literature for losers”.

    Put some serious content on the blog, man. Something amazingly analytic, and seriously I dont want to wake up and read crap. Screws up my day, y’know?

    Oi Dorji Tashi

    “seeing the examples of New Democratic Movement across the globe”?

    I’m just dying for you to mention some “examples”. New Democratic Movement in the world? Sounds like some very interesting conspiracy. Enlighten us please.

    BTW..should the democratization of Bhutan also fall under that?

    OWi Aku,
    The present democratization of Bhutan does not fall under the New Democratic Movement rather I would call that as a drama planning to stage to eye wash the international community. In fact it is the scorn of the New Democratic Movement by cons like you.
    Also, if the blog is of less significance what makes you waste time here? DO not bother know. Let people take their own way. Know?
    Aku you must be too old to understand this changing world. Right?
    Bye aku.

    Dorji Tashi…I still haven’t seen a single mention of anything that would clarify what you mean by the “NEW DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT”.

    So what is it? SOmething going on inside that demented head of yours?

    What I do with my time is my prerogative. If there are misdirected people spreading disinformationa and cheap propaganda against my country, then its my duty to educate them.

    So I may be old and not grasp the “changing world”. You too will find, as you grow older and more mature, that you can be stirred to be angry and frustrated by those seeking to take advantage of the vanity, naivety and stupidity of youth to suit their own purposes. So have fun being manipulated and brainwashed.

    You can also choose not to be. For that, you first need a mind of your own…and be honest with yourself.

    Ms Akutashi..
    …WOW…that was immaculate..no kidding..incisive,loud..fast.

    Great realist presentation..give it 4out of 5–better than i can do..

    ..who’s going to keep the peace, keep the ball rolling, and not,
    with a spark(misjudgement) set off years of misery and instability?

    There was never a bad peace; never a good war.–it’s too bad that King Birendra’s 116-nation proposal for neutrality was blocked by india-
    what to do?

    Hey, great job Akutashi, great job. The author has meddled up the fact and there is a fool like Dorji Tashi who laps it all up. But you did a great job of giving a few home truth to the fool. And he claims he’s from Punakha. I can’t believe. Really I believe you, that guys needs to get a mind of his own. Can’t he even realize the truth has been twisted so well. I dont think he’s living in Bhutan.If he was it wouldn’t be easy to fool him.

    “New democartic movement”??? What a hogwash. He can start it in Bhutan if he wants. lets see who listens.

    All kinds of people exists in this world.No wonder there are lots of problem in the world.
