I had to!

Today is an important day for Bhutan as we decide towards the evening which party will form the new government. Through out the country the voting procedures have gone smoothly as compared to the first years of democracy as reported by the national news channel(BBS). However it was shocking to recieve an invitation from BBC to my father to be interviewed and since he lacked the ability to speak english properly i had to take the privilege to doing so!. Well let me describe the situation like, firstly my grandmothers parking lot located at the hub of the CBD seems deserted and no car can be seen today, secondly the night before, whole of the town was patrolled and thirdly the weather thorough out the country seems gloomy towards the afternoon and rainfall in some parts of western Bhutan. This year we have lesser problems compared to last year in terms of drunk voters and those that carried weapons. This time the battle between DPT and PDP who scored the highest number of seats during the primary rounds against the two other parties i.e Druk Chirwang Tshogpa and Druk Namrup Tshogpa. This time we have a tight election race as compared to 2008! After so many cold wars and unnecessary accusations against eachother;the final wait will be worth.
