Everyone knows that Thimphu is the capital city of Bhutan. It is filled with bright lights and people rejoice seeing it especially in the evening where it brightens the whole town. Moreover, Thimphu has all the facilities for entertainments like swimming pool, Basketball court, Public Libraries, Pubs and restaurants. Students have access to such luxuries. Basically, people staying at Thimphu are exposed and educated.
But it is not the case in rural area and this can be seen in eastern side where development is limited and students make use of limited facilities.
The Head (Anyone in Government) ask people what should be done to bring development, then development should be focused in improving the life in rural-make them available to some entertainments where they can refresh after their work in the farm.
- Connect Cable TV
- Educate GNH (I think, it is village people who is indirectly maintaining what GNH really is. I think, government should make rural people realize how much they are contributing to a Nation. Why can’t they be included in upbringing the welfare of Bhutan? They are always in the first place to live within GNH and not live with it.
It would be a productive initiative to do a workshop on how to let Rural people have fair share of Entertainments after their heavy and tiring farm work and discuss on what can be done to improve further infrastructural facilities. And also raise the issue of GNH, which is now the essential pillar of Bhutan known to the outside world.
