As I Am, So is My Nation

This book is a treat for literature lover as it has abounding and impressive corpus from the author. It represents a deep understanding of many of the questions we ponder as a citizen,parent, son, daughter,educator, leader, builder, bearer or as a philosopher. ‘As I am so is my nation’ is a tribute to all the good things we have in our beautiful country and prayer for all the good things we have in this jewel of the Himalayas.

The Talisman of Good Fortune and Other Stories from Rural Bhutan

It is my second Bhutanese authored book I read as a high school student. The book is a collection of fiction stories based on traditional beliefs. Its the kind of folktale that Bhutanese people tell their younger generation.

The Talisman of the good fortune is about a curse handed down from generation to generation of a family by magical cauldron. This story has been later featured as Bhutanese movie “ The Golden Cup”. The culture and beliefs of rural Bhutan are outlined vividly in ‘The Talisman of good fortune and other stories from Bhutan’.
