Master Nandalal Rai

Nandalal Rai

A nice boy. Very much like Minjur, but more sporty. In fact good at sports. I thought he would be a leader in school because of his skills at sports. But somehow he has become synonymous with gaffes and goof ups. He is a running joke machine and the joke is always on him. His mispronunciation of words like “shit” for “sit” and horrendous Dzongkha makes him a delight for other students. He takes all this well and is actually a well balanced person in spite of it.

I can only say he has to be employed in a profession which doesn’t require much thinking, reasoning and contemplation. He has a short attention span. He can take orders, but you have to keep them simple. Maybe a soldier? Yes, he could be an army officer or soldier.
