Letter from Dasho Tashi Phuntshog


Your most gracious honourableness PM and the excellencies of the Lhengye Zhungtshog,

I have found wonderful flight and landing in Kuwait as your humble ambassador. (Sorry sir I mean humble in your presences but proud and pomp to Kuwait.) I have enjoyed the muchness of kindness when I was taken from exile camp of dzongkha devt commission and apointed as the Cabinet Drungchen. It was my highest honor of life.

In Kuwait I have met upon the Emir (like king or empeoror) and the prime minister (who is also royal). Here they are all like royal members in all positions. Not like Bhutan. I think that in Bhutan we have so exempilary great leaders like you so no need for using royals.

I have convayed the proudest greetings of honourable prime minister our beloved Lyonchhen to them. I insure they heard of the Gross National Happiness and security council seat with diplomatic relations with superpower chinese. They are very amazed by our beloved Lyonchhen following my proud lesson to them. I am deeply happy (GNH) to be good kutshab for you sirs.
With great respects.


Tashi Phuntshog
Kutshab, Kuwait.


PS:I got gift of rolax watch from Emir which I have save for our beloved Lyonchhen.
And I love DPT so am changing my name to Phuntshog Tashi. When I am called Dasho it will read as DPT (Dasho Phuntshog Tashi)
