"The size of our universe is the size of our mind."
This is one book I read over and again. It has everything a good book offers. The measured and rhythmic language is a literary feast. An ideal bigger than the book. The celebration of life of a nation and an individual. The idea of how a nation is a collective reflection of individuals. As I am, so is my nation.
How fast you can finish reading this book depends on what you would like to take-away. If it is for the poetic language, you can read it away in a sitting. But it has bigger things to offer. The idea of Bhutan at her best. This, what I believe, is what Bhutan is and would look like at her best. I prefer to read it as a prayer book -- read a sentence and contemplate. They are profound, contemplative, and meditative.
The title "As I am, So is my Nation" is a profound wisdom that can be suitably deconstructed as follows.
If we're successful so is our nation, if we cripple so will the nation.
The book as as famed as author.
