  1. Hi guys…
    what i personally feel is that…. people are fed off of such organizations in the camps in nepal and some cunning people are continuing the same trend in the US. And when read the few lines…. the secretries r of the same row…. or they are from the branches of the same family tree…. IS THIS NOT WHAT WE CALL NEPOTISM???? Else what?? The idea of getting benifitted from the name of refugee is very good…. How long will u survive vampires???

  2. It’s good to be united and I am more than happy to listened that. But it’s very easy to open the small community since we have practice more than 100s of such community in the camp… It’s very hard to gain the goals that we have set upfor the betterment of community because. Our mind is full of greedyness ….I wish yo sanstha kasaiko magikhane bhado nabbanos

  3. I wonder how u guys can claim to be Bhutanese…there is already an existing citizenship act in Bhutan and according to the law of the country, you guys must have been immigrants that left the country. Now u guys are resettled as Bhutanese refugees and again you are forming such a organization, without your identity as a Bhutanese. If u were genuine Bhutanese then, you would have been living in Bhutan and not in places like that. So sorry guys but identity is what makes a difference…whether you form organizations anywhere but at least for God sake, do not claim to be Bhutanese when you all do not have Bhutanese identity and citizenship.

    • hi pardasi tara, do u think that these guys do betterment 4 society? who do u think the best guy having social feeling?

      • I believe in actions and not in words. I like the idea of forming a social organization in the verge of being deformation. It requires a great deal of support to unite together that also in the mist of uniqueness and bio-diversity.So, to be frank-all those guys are great who were involved in creating this racial (Bhutanese) social organization.
        I trust upon your work. I can tell you ” who is who” only when they start dealing with their responsibilities.
        Hope ! good gets going.
        Thank you.
