Soups and stews of meat, rice, ferns, lentils, and dried vegetables, spiced with chilli peppers and cheese, are a favorite meal during the cold seasons.Bhutanese foods (2)

To Pappa with Love: Happy Fathers Day

My dad is my life. He literally sustains me as if he is a part of my soul. He is there when I slip and carries me when I fall and refuse to get up. I am ordinary and he is extraordinary. He has been the source of my inspiration. The light when all seems dark and lost. He taught us to dream and to believe that everything in life is possible, if you work hard. He sacrificed so much so that I can have the best and be the best. I remember the look of joy in his eyes when i was happy. He is a simple man. When i am happy, he is overjoyed. He is a man of uncommon strength. Pappa, you have sacrificed so much for me. You have listened to all my whinings and continue to do so. You have made this common boy special. You believed in me when no one else did. You saw me as a gift. You did not compare. You did not regret. All you did was drown me with your love and care. I was all that mattered to you.  

Today is a special day, Pappa. The day where I learn to appreciate the greatest blessing in my life. And its the day I tell you how much you mean to me. You are within me. Thoughts of you keeps me strong. Your prayers keep me going. Your love keeps me alive. I know that you are proud of me. I swear that I will never let you down. What I was yesterday is devoted to you. What i am today is because of you. What i will become tomorrow is a reflection of you. We made it, Pappa. We made it together. Happy Fathers day to you Pappa & all the Dad’s out there..!

Fathers day

With the best Dad..

“I’ve said it before but it’s absolutely true: My mother gave me my drive, but my gather gave me my dreams. Thanks to him, I could see a future.”- Liza Minnelli

Inspirational Story:

You Might have seen this  Before… But Nothing Can Prepare You For The Truth Behind It… No matter what part of the world you examine, there will be parents and children there sharing bonds of love and respect. This photo in particular surfaced from rural Asia, warming the hearts of thousands online. Although there isn’t much information online about this picture, you won’t need to know the full story to really feel the emotions behind it. According to Reddit and a Thai forum, this is a picture of a son with his poor farmer father after finally graduating from college. The juxtaposition of the son and father is shocking, but also touching. The young man graduated from Ratchpatr University in Chiang Rai (far northern Thailand). Now, with the help of his education, he can support the father that literally gave his life to help his boy. The love shared between these two men is truly touching.

One of the most distinctive features of the Bhutanese is their traditional dress, unique garments that have evolved over thousands of years. Men wear the Gho, a knee-length robe somewhat resembling a kimono that is tied at the waist by a traditional belt known as Kera.
