Former PM of Bhutan Takes Refuge in Pakistan, as a Nun

Jigme Y Thinley
After five years as president of DPT
Leading the charge of anti-Indian activity
The people of Bhutan finally expelled PM JYT
Having also revoked his Bhutanese identity

After an elaborate Chinese intelligence drama
He “escaped” into India as a Tibetan lama
Flush with Chinese funds and support
In no time he was a trulku of some import

With a few years of lobbying, he rose to the high station
Of assisting the Dalai Lama in the Kalachakra initiation
High trulku after trulku rose to recite prayers and receive the Dalai’s blessing
At his turn, in a great panic he recited softly his defence of Gyalpozhing

Ever alert, the serene Dalai Lama brought a halt to the Chinese drama
He said “Chho Rochakpa Jigmi Thinlay. Not Tibetan Lama”
The crowd bayed for JYT blood and cheered as an Indian guard drew a gun
But a la Ramdev he escaped the stage and fled to Pakistan dressed as a nun

Somewhere in the barren mountains among the Taliban
A tender JYT sleeps among tents full of Musulmaan
As always seeking to be the leader, he has shown the way
But with no GNH, he now extols the pleasures in being gay

At night when the tent of herders have had their fill
He lies awake, in pain and ashamed but still…
If having sex with Pakistanis made India unhappy
Goat butter as balm, this burden he would carry

  1. Whatever you may write in the forum about of Bhutan and Bhutanese, I pledge the author NOT TO RELATE ANYTHING ELSE TO MUSLIM AND TALIBAN. This is very sensitive to them and they will do anything they can to those who bring down their names. Please don’t let our peaceful nation to blast one day.

    There is a famous Bhutanese saying ” When you keep looking forward for a needle, you will loose the axe you are already carrying”.

  2. while trying to be smart one falls in pit dug by self.


    It may be strange for the class teacher to trace the parents of Master JYT, who is such an amazing kid for the world to see but so odd in his classroom and especially when he deals with his classmates individually. Bhutanese Thinktank had to do some research too. Way back in the 1990s when JYT was posted as the zonal administrator in Yonpula, the following happened. One fine morning much to the surprise of Dasho Zanglay Dukpa, JYT invited him to travel up to Sengor, which is a small village between Mongar and Bumthang. Karma then had the opportunity to travel along with Dasho Zanglay.

    Most travelers stop at Sengor for a quick lunch and pay through their nose. The guest house below the small market is the abode of JYT. Now why guest house? Here is the mystery solved. Bhutanomics wrote that JYT might have been adopted and it is very true. Sengor was a special place during the time of Jigme Namgyal as it was between the east and the west where the patriotic people like the Great Grandfather of Aum Lily Wangchuk helped to consolidate the eastern part of Bhutan. It was in 1916 the first hand written tax receipts were issued to the Bhutanese though tax was paid in Kalimpong. Karma has the first tax receipt from one of the old man in Jigmechholing intact. In those days trade was quite difficult and for a good deal people had to travel all the way to Ha and make it to Kalimpong – the route still exists. During one of those trade trips during the winter in the 1950s JYT was recruited by some traders who had been to Kalimpong. JYT was located in one of those Tibetan mandis of that time and he was mere a kid with no parents around him. While whipping the horses on the long trip to Ha and then traveling to Sengor, JYT forgot the hardships at the mandi and with his ability to speak Hindi and Nepali, he became useful to the Sengor herders and traders. When the first Census took place in the country, he was enlisted as a Bhutanese with no parents. Many suspect that he was brought from Lhadak by some Marwaris to Kalimpong. Thus JYT was adopted by some kind hearted sengorpa. With his shrewdness he could make best use of his employers’ money, often stealing and he was a favored kid when the Khillas were building the palace in jigmechholing by the roadside planning for a Coup in the country.

    It was a very serious issue and the villagers in Jigmechholing who were mostly Lhothsampas reported the reality to the government. When the real report of what was going on in Jigmechholing reached His Majesty the Third Druk Gyalpo who was in Delhi at that time, the demand for the heads of the conspirators was declared. The Khillas absconded and their truck in Assam that was loaded with guns and explosives veered off the road making their plans to finish the Royal Family failed. During that time HM Jigme Singye Wangchuk was at St. Joseph’s School in Darjelling but because of the situation that was prevailing in the Country , the young prince was sent to England for studies.

    It was a time of conspiracy in the country and the jangchubsempa Druk Gyalpo JDW was faced with challenges with his deteriorating health because of too much work. JYT had been already in the field of conspiracy as a young lout and when His Majesty the Druk Gyalpo Passed away in Nairobi, JYT was in full swing working with some of the most terrible people in the country. His lip service patriotism convinced the government to grant him that opportunity to study at Penn State in the US later.

    Soon after he returned from his studies he was burning with the passion to overshadow the Monarchy and he formed the National Youth Association of Bhutan (NYAB). The pretext of informing people starting a radio station with borrowed transmitter from the wireless station helped JYT brainwash the youths who were not so much exposed. This was a cause of concern to the government.


    The visit of Lynpo Tamji Jagar (The Grand Old man of Bhutanese Politics ), for whom I had the pleasure of taking note from the people who were exploited by the Khilla’s during the construction of the palace like structure was an important moment. About 15 villagers from surey who had been there since the 1930’s from Tsirang were interviewed about the way the Khilla’s made it to the village. The custom official who was at that time in Calcutta was also involved in the plot. The sincere words of the villagers and their fears of being slaves to the Khillas if they had been successful in the plot was revealed in tears. Finally a thorough search of the big house was done the villagers promised to make sure to get hold of anyone who came to the house. After a big picnic and cultural program the Khilla building was given to Surey Primary school. The house became a terrible place to live with students falling sick every now and then when it was used as hostel. There had been so much evil there that the school gave it to the Basic Health Unit. It was a very unlucky place and nothing good came of the house and later it became the Gup’s office but finally it was demolished for the construction of the Dratshang. That erases one segment of JYT’s conspiracy.

    The story of the terrible building is important in connection with JYT because it could have been his winter home if the plot had been successful. For some time he kept quiet and his ambition to speak as the PM got a real good shape when he delivered the speech at the closing of Bhutan’s first Education week . He was leaving Bhutan as the Kutsab to the UN. It was at the end of the week long education week he delivered at Changlimithang when the IMTART had a great display of fireworks to the students and public. It was the first of its kind in Bhutan for a public event.
    Upon his return to Bhutan, his dream to overtake the country began with this 20 year long conspiracy, which finally made him the chosen seed – the first elected PM of the country after he became successful to manipulate the whole nation.


    All was well planned in Yonpula and this time it was a real plot to divide the people of Bhutan and even rage a civil war and he wanted to come out a hero before the government. He was the Macbeth of Bhutan in the making and the sparks that he could ignite gave him great satisfaction. The country got into the turmoil and the ripples of JYT’s actions tarnished Bhutan’s image in the international arena. The effect of the heinous JYT drama are felt now with the severe shortage of manpower and heavily threatened food security. JYT played his cards really well and came victorious in the first election and making GNH as his stepping stone he has been able to not only blackmail the Bhutanese but also the international communities with his philosophy of New Economic Paradiagm. He has secured his position by the lifelong ambassador GNH and even as the next PM he is going to be the Lead Commission of the New Economic Paradiagm in the UN.

    Thus this adopted Sengor cowboy of not Bhutanese origin drowns the country every day. He is very rude, dangerous and has caused tragedy to so many. He is after another great drama before the next election. We all need to watch out this rough man for his numerous corruptions and putting Bhutan on sale!!!

    It will be futile for the class teacher to trace the parents of JYT, therefore we all should take him as the Koktee that ravaged the spiritual virginity of Bhutan.

    More to come on the conspiracy today and the traitors that we have in our political parties.

  4. The Article was in poor taste, the author must realize that such disgusting writing reflects his or her taste, so no marks for the author, If I was the school master, a good wipping on the back side with willow sticks.

  5. Churkam’s article neither carry an iota of facts nor an satire. it is outright defamation…

  6. ashumbhokpe says:

    If JYT were to be in refuge in Pakistan that way, all those who voted would have to bear a similar fete. Mr. author, what is it that makes you wish so bad for JYT. All of us could not resist laughing here in the office this morning when we checked Bhutanomics.

    And Mr. Churkam- you must be a croney, maybe a retiree in Gelephu or somewhere in Zhemgang. Lot of us know about the Khila house that stood there but never knew the involvement of JYT. are you sure that it was JYT? As per the records it was Khilla, Dasho Ramjam who had the big house with the red roof, Custom Dasho the jeep owner, the ranger Tshering wangdi, Damcho’s Aama, Takto the doma man, Lepo’s father, Rinzila’s father, two other tibetan beauties and Queen Yangki involved in the construction.and purchase of the weapons. JYT must have been still a young boy then.

    How come Churkam in this ring of the youths reading and writing in bhutanomics? is it not your daughter Karma Chhimi wrting this for you? It is time for churkam to read his prayer books and not defame JYT.

  7. This author must have been bitten either by a mad dog with or a wild fox. I see no treatment now from the medical science perspective. Too bad dear author.

  8. The part of Churkam’s article questioning JYT’s origins is not true. This is the true origin story of JYT so please listen up.

    For those who don’t know JYT is the illegitimate grandson of Paro Penlop Tshering Penjore who was the ambitious brother of the second King and also wore the Raven Crown thinking himself equal to the Second King.

    Paro Penlop Tshering Penjore in Ashi Dorji Om’s book ‘Rainbow and Clouds’ is shown to be a rude, corrupt, dangerous and exploitative leader who wanted to replace the second King as the King. He was also the one who masterminded the killing of the late Shabdrung

    JYT’s grandmother and the mother of the third King’s Dronyer had JYT’s father (third Kings Dronyer) out of an illegeitimate wedlock with Paro Penlop Tshering Penjore. Please therefore observe the physical and pyschological attributes between Paro Penlop Tshering Penjore and JYT.

    Physically both have balding hair, the same eyes, nose and physical apperance except that JYT is not as fat as the Penlop was.

    Psychologically the terrible temper, dictatorail attitude, vindictive nature, conspiring and highly ambitious nature comes from the Penlop.

    Many say JYT knows this and like his real grandfather feels that he is the real inheritor of the Bhutanese throne.

    The DPT and PDP struggle is only and eyewash as JYT’s real struggle is with the Monarchy as he believes that genetically, historically and politically he should be the King of Bhutan if not in form then in power.

    JYT in many ways cannot help it due to the genes passed down the line to him by his real grandfather who always plotted to overthrow the second king and also wore the Raven crown equally with the second king.

  9. Therefore Tashi, it is confirmed that JYT has been plotting against the monarchy since the very early age and was a partner in the Khila issue. But remember JYT’s abbot in Sengor is true if not ask any old people. Do you remember the plot that he had when he first started NYAB. Do you know what his real aim was? We the people of Bhutan must understand what JYT has been upto. His line has been always plotting and JYT is responsible for dividing the people of Bhutan and creating this food security and ghost villages.

    As per Dawala (name changed) who is in Gelephu, JYT was first seen by him in a mandi in Kalimpong and he travelled to sengor all the way. I guess it is because he was illegitimate, he was kept out there – so that even if he wanted a good share he could have the east. How about the rich aunt down there in Pemagatshel? Is she some illigit too?

  10. Hey Churkam, you should have told this long before. I regret voting for the wrong guy and looks like he his plotting not to hold the next election by creating another big drama. Let the world know that he is a big fraud.

  11. woi, this is bit too much for the already beleaguered PM. pl spare him for his own good health. This is no good. I personally do not support such malice.

  12. I too do not support this rubbish about JYT. This is a meaningless desperate move to cut JYT to size. The more such moves, the greater JYT’s standing in the bhutanese society because deep within their hearts, people know who is JYT as a person.

  13. Testing. Two posts rejected

  14. Not getting the point of these posts
    Sad to say but the wit of this site’s hosts
    is degrading more & more
    to some personal vendetta against JYT, DPT..
    .. the whole Govt. and even more!
    Seems a lot of atsaras with ambition
    Have a lot of time on hand or more
    For mischief and vitriol,…but for what function?
    I’m not so sure

  15. it is very clear that the intension of this site is to just to write against the PM. the content is going from comical to hysterical, it does not make any sense just like “the bhutanese” paper and the OL.

  16. So pathetic stories lurk out here looking right but they shall be of no effect to the minds of sane Bhutanese. We will not turn to cruel history of the past of which we are tired because of various contentions and strife capable of reviving the spirit of vengeance.
    We want a man that can unite Bhutan socially, culturally and politically with purpose. We are tired of divisions and plots and stories of conspiracies. Now we want to trust each other and live in peace and rest. May the great PM lead the great people of this nation that trust and entrust him with power be in power keeping the desires of his opposers at bay.

  17. This piece is in very bad taste. There is no sense of self respect as writers. Being satirical and humorous is one thing but irresponsibly mincing words and phrases that carry very little sense of dignity as writers is shameful and the intentions of such article seems highly dubious and valued as much as spit in the drain. I urge responsible and intelligent articles Bhutanomics, so far the group behind this website have done a pretty fair job in demystifyin and dissecting characters, personalities, situations and intrigues, however, this piece has gone beyond any imaginable sense of meaning, subtlety and taste. Dont loose the credibility you all have earned over the last many months with such stupid and senseless article. We do appreciate satire and humor but not the irresponsibile kinds like this. What is your hidden agenda?

  18. This is neither humour, black humour or a satire; This is totally defamation and Bhutanomics should not have had let the post in. Even if Bhutanomiucs did allow the publication there should have been some moderation.. The taste is so bad.. This writers credit must suck!!!

  19. Atsara Lopon says:

    The author is a disgusting hermaphrodite who has had very rough experience with his pathetic life that the pain and agony that he lived through has made him bitter, anti-societal kind of person. Nonetheless, he deserves kindness and help for all the abuses that he’s been through, especially of having used too much goat butter on himself. May your ass heal well!

  20. Some times, we need to respect the rule of the game and not cross the line of decency even for a laugh. Many of us have had our share of poking our fingers at the PM, and all for the right reasons to keep him in line. And believe you me, he has plenty of faults that need quick fixes.We do it not out of hate but because we love our country and value our freedom. However, Bhutanomics has gone a little too far this time.

    • well said pain….cannot agree more…we criticize not because we hate him but we are concerned about our future..true…

  21. Author, your article does not say anything about JYT, it totally reveals your attitude. It shows your dirty image in a clean mirror. You can bring criticisms on politics but not the defamation at personal level. Writing such nonsense will not contribute anything towards the improvement of JYT and his party.

    Dear citizens of Bhutan, when we have opportunities to raise our critics and ideas in such forums, let us not waste our time by making fun on ourselves. Let’s not make Bhutnomics another Kuensel forum.

  22. Gold will not turn into copper even if you burn it at thousands degree Celsius. It will remain as gold only. So the best thing is use it in an efficient and effective ways.

  23. I think this is another post which has no redeeming quality. It will be a compliment to call it crass and cheap. Powder on the shoulder and banish yourself from this site till you learn the basics of humourous writing. Read The Onion, or even some old Mad magazines. But always remember, it ain’t easy. Perhaps cacofonics was inspired by so many world famous comedians who use x-rated language and themes with great effect. But these need talent and skill as well. And nothing falls flatter than a joke that doesn’t work. If you can’t be funny, don’t try to force it…write straight stuff.

  24. I think this is another post which has no redeeming quality apart from the fact that he got it to rhyme. It will be a compliment to call it crass and cheap.

  25. I will say about JYT’s father? He was Gaydroen, the Chief Secretary to third Druk Gyalpo. He was guy who was behind national flag, army drill and many others. Remember, there was no Lyonpo that time and Gaydroen Thinley was everything. He even had to convict Dasho Chabda though they were childhood friends and they met just before chabda was punished to talk about their lives.

    Even Indian PM Nehru appreciated Gaydroen Thinley’s intelligence. When Gaydroen Thinley was ill, 3rd King was said to remark, “If there is medicine to get him well, i don’t care id wealth of nation exhausts.” Just imagine what was JYT’s father to third King?


    • This media is a sham! It’s an insult to us being Bhutanese, does this media say we Bhutanese are stupid dare not provoke the peaceful people, if you want to help the country, write something meaningful,dispicable writing, understand this when you insult the leader you are insulting the people, be warned! Don’t be a blatant media!!

  27. So this is what the OL refers to as satire and I actually believed he was a smart guy who went to Harvard and by the way, who is this funny guy who calls himself Apnaka, he seems to be having a really terrible life, looks like a someone who has been bullied all his life, so sad for him/her.

  28. It doesn’t take much sense to note that, JYT is a bad ASS Bhutanese, but look around, there aren’t any Bhutanese that are any better than JYT himself. Given a chance all will walk that same path ??
