Parents we could not trace in order to deliver report cards.
We could not trace Master Jigme Thinley’s parents.. The school register says Pema Gatshel but they weren’t there. We only found a wealthy aunty. She advised us to look in Punakha but we were unable to make progress because a certain former student Sangay Ngedup who we refused admission hails from there and his family wouldn’t let us make any enquiries about Jigmi. We looked in Bumthang but there is a large centre for an NGO on happiness but no sign of the parents.
So Jigmi’s parents have never attended the Parent Teacher (PT) meetings. But his rootlessness explains so much about his odd unpleasant behavior and personality.
