Master Jigme Tshultim

Jigme Tshultim

I thought he was the son of the richest man in Bhutan. This boy has airs. He behaves as if his family owns the school and the teachers. Very difficult boy. Seems to have no friends. The few who believe his tall tales will be found near him. But only for a few days till they find out he is lying.

He is dismal at studies and on the verge of failing three years in a row. Students from his village however said that his family has convinced the entire village back home that he is the brightest student in school and in the country. Villagers have been talking about how he might become the village’s first dasho. Maybe even doctor or minister. On winter breaks his family takes him around the village on horseback in brocade ghos to showcase him to the neighbourhood.

If the world is perfect, he will not graduate high school. But one never knows how far a big mouth and “bullshit” can take you.

    Jigme Tshultrim helps poor people. But helping big shots put him in problem. That is karma if you become selfish.
