Private TV Channel for Bhutan


We have shown that we are capable. Our private papers are testimony to this. Initially no one thought it was possible to sell newspapers other than Kuensel. But now Bhutan already boasts of four privately run papers. And we are made to understand that some more are in the offing. This is very good news to us all. Other papers should take this as an opportunity  to work harder and better themselves. 

But for now private Bhutanese channel is what everyone wishes for. This in turn should give very good competition to BBS. And unless we have a channel choice, we might have to continue watching hourly news programs and hearing shooting non-stop public announcement that sometimes stretch more than five minutes.

What do we want in the new channel? 

Definitely, Bhutanese people want to have new, unique and better programs and updated news, live reporting. Because right now we are made to feel that even if their building is on fire, BBS newsreaders will continue reading the prepared news report. In Bhutan news reaches people very fast even without media.

We want some long and more satisfying Live programs. Today, however important some discussions are, BBS appropriates just 30 minutes, half of which painfully passes in the introduction session. Yes, we understand some discussions are continued after the news reading, but the whole charm is gone when they continue after half an hour. So much preference to news reading!

Give us something satisfying, something detail. Hopefully, all that will change once when we have a private channel daring to compete.

P.S: No intention to discredit either Kuensel or BBS and readers should read it as my random, untamed and candid thought process at work.

  1. It is even more painful when the tenents do not have the privilege to choose the local TV service providers.

    Tenents are on the mercy of their landloard and have to be satisfied with the TV line chosen by their landloard.

    Our society is very undemocratic...and in such a scenerio who is to be blamed.

    God bless us all.

A Vibrant Village

What is a vibrant village? What does it take to create one? Can a village vibrancy prevent and curb rural-urban migration?
A village is vibrant when it has happy and content people. A village is vibrant where content people help each other. A vibrant village is where everyone is involved in or concerned with building a strong community. Such a village is connected with a well-maintained road that provides farmers with access to the outside world. 
A vibrant village grows its food and has no need to import anything from outside. Such a village booms with economic activities and here farmers look beyond subsistence farming. That is not to inject greed; it is rather, to encourage hard-working people to work harder. These farmers have at their service useful and modern farming tools to ease their work on the farms. In a vibrant village, farmers have the right to harvest their crops without having to share them with wild animals. 
A vibrant village has adequate and modern day facilities. Ele…

Utpal Academy - Bhutan's first All-girls High School

Welcome to Bhutan’s first all-girls school. Isn’t that wonderful news to all our parents? Certainly, as a parent of a one-year old daughter I am excited about the coming of a school exclusively dedicated to the needs of girls. Our girls need special treatment, which we can for sure entrust the responsibility to Utal Academy, Paro.
I really like the name – Utpal – in Buddhist world, Utpal is another name for lotus flower, which is believed to grow from mud and yet blossoms into a beautiful and majestic flower. It stands for purity and many deities are depicted holding flower Utpal, more prominently Jestusn Dolma, the Goddess Tara. Symbolically, it also stands for the transformation of our girls. What an apt name for the school!
The Principal’s message posted on the academy’s website promises providing our young women an “opportunity to participate fully in a wide range of extracurricular activities to develop skills and qualities that will lead to successful and fulfilling life.” That’s…

Seeing and experiencing REAL Bhutan

Yes, we have deep respects for those tourists, who visit places and observe real festivals with the natives and enjoy them to the fullest. Such foreigners will get more out of Bhutan and their visits. In my opinion, most tourists would like to see something like that and experience real Bhutan and not the one that’s artificially created for them. They would like to spend some time interacting with our farmers. 
Our people need to maintain clean rooms and cook hygienic food. Such skills can be provided to the people in the rural villages. If only that happens we see the benefit of tourism being shared with all. Because right now only those who own big restaurants in urban centers and those who own major tour companies are the ultimate beneficiaries. That way we will have rich people getting richer while the poor will remain more or less mere spectator of this ever happening tourism sector.  We need to think of new tourist destinations. For now, almost every tour company sells almost th…
