One of the first Bhutanese Noble I read during my college days gave me the feel of being away from home and how easily you could be at loss or get lost.
It's a perfect window to look at the country I have not been to.

The story is of first point of view where he share his experience of studying abroad .There, it is mention of the various custom and cultural difference between Australia and Bhutan .Mr. Dorji Wangchuk left with heavy heart leaving his wife and two children behind .The atmosphere of Australia was different where it was difficult for him to adapt in new society .The time in Australia was never easy as most of time it seemed fate was unfair for him . His hardship of three years was completed where at last his wife came for his reception at Bangkok and his children were waiting for his return at Paro airport. -Review by ( Yoezer Dema 10 ,Tashidingkha Central School,,Punakha)
