Closure of Bhutanusa.com- A press release

FOR  IMMEDIATE  RELEASE

( USA, March 02/2010)

Despite ever-growing traffic of visitors/viewers to http://www.bhutanusa.com, the time  has come for the site be closed down for an indefinite period of time following the technical and managerial issues that has crept into the site recently.

The reasons arise out of the fact that the time period of the registration of this domain has run out and the web page designer(Himalayan Web Info. Pvt. Ltd, Kathmandu, Nepal) that was entrusted with the task of developing the site to its final form and hosting it with a different domain, globalbhutan.com, cheated us badly letting us not to blog about what we have been doing for nearly one and a half years.

Back in 2008, we conceived the concept of having a place in the internet to blog about the tiny Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan and a vast majority of  Bhutanese folks all around the globe.Well, we came up on the final day of December 2008 with the idea to have a  web site on the issue, in fact the first of all diaspora sites for Bhutanese created over the past  with different intellectual perspectives and scholastic efforts. We do not claim ourselves to be so scholastic and precisely perspective thinkers in regards to working with Butanusa.com but we did have a successful story in the past with an ever-increasing influx of visitors, viewers, well-wishers and above all, our advisors who, in some way served as beacon for our responsibility-laden ship to head its way surviving the Doldrums  on a vast ocean of socio-political criticism and diverse ideological Tsunamis. In a nutshell, bhutanusa.com prospered well ever since it was conceived  by resettled Bhutanese from third countries.

Notwithstanding the aforementioned reality about the success of the site, we have been now coerced into a most difficult juncture of technical and socio-political complexities associated with it. These left us, despite all our endeavors, incapable of keeping it up-to-date. We manage all efforts  to survive but things went other way round and we are compelled to close the chapter for an indefinite period of time.

Our thanks are due to our valued visitors, our senior Bhutanese reporters, Bhutanese intellectuals who supported us during hard times and above all, our team members, who, amidst the busy and hectic schedules of their daily living, worked devotedly to bring things updated on a regular and timely manner. Rationally speaking, we always stand hand in hand working together for a common cause of peace and happiness for people who are deprived of it. We still have a long way to go together and not to end with this.

We regret the inconvenience caused on the part of our valued readers, visitors and viewers as a result of its closure. Once again, we anticipate the valuable suggestions from our supporters on this subject.

We are once again sorry to say that the site, Bhutanusa.com will be completely down on 8th May at 12.00 Mid night.
