Bhutan

If recent reports are any indicator, Bhutan has to do a lot more in removing the stigma attached to HIV/AIDS.

 

The city roads in Thimphu are so bad that people have now stopped waiting for the thromde whose job it is to fix. There is not a single stretch of road long enough that is not without a pothole. In places, depressions are like craters hollowed by the impact of meteorite.

 

The construction industry is at the heart of infrastructure development. For society like ours, it is considered the backbone of economic growth.

 

The government’s overseas employment continues to make headlines. In today’s Kuensel, we have a story of some 30 Bhutanese who decided to return home from India.

 

We are today talking about right attributes that our children need to have to enter the wider world of reality. What this means is how are we preparing our children for the future that they will face sooner or later. Yes, we are talking about education.

 

The intent may be right, but something is not going right with the overseas employment programme.

 

Education has always received priority in our country and rightly it’s credited for transforming Bhutan to its current state of development. The recent inauguration of new education institutions reminds us of the acute shortages of such institutions at the tertiary level in the country.

 

Education has been in the limelight these past few days. For the country these are reasons enough to celebrate.

 

Agriculture, the main sector that provides livelihood to more than half the population of this country, is witnessing a curious change today.

 

As open as we decided to be, we are staunch protectionists. We are talking about our wildlife and the environment.
