DURGA PUJA & DIWALI 2019
Bhutan is also called “The land of Thunder Dragon” because of the violent and large thunderstorms that whip down through the valleys from the Himalayas. Bhutan, nestled in the Eastern Himalayas between China and India, the small Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan opened itself to the world only in 1960s. It had been largely mysterious even to its neighbors but abandoning its self-imposed policy of isolation had it grappling to find a precarious balance between modernization and the preservation of its culture and traditions.However, it does seem that Bhutan has found the perfect balance between the two and now though it is making tremendous developments in all sectors, it also manages to hold onto its unique identity that makes it unlike any other country in the world with a population of just over 8 lakhs. So, lets explore the beauty of this wonderful “Land of Dragon” where paradise resides.
