"Kuzuzangpola"

“kuzuzangpola” meaning good morning in dzongkha is a cliché for the tourist that visit Bhutan every year and this time of the year so many tourist from all over the world visit us. That evening the view from my mom’s town house was magnificent and satisfactory as it was filled with many tourist. One of them had been filming some random events of students returning from school and the elderly chanting prayers. The hotel next door has been literally bringing every day a bus full of tourist from the border areas and i couldn’t help noticing the expression on one of their faces. The moment she got into her hotel room, peeping through the window and holding hands with her loved ones. On this note i also recall one of such incident when we were about to land at Paro International Airport last winter. I noticed that just next to me there lay two female tourist(European)mother and a daughter along with their father and sister at the back. Just few minutes before we landed, the view of the magnificent Paro valley came into picture and the prayer flags believed to carry our prayers to heaven. Right here did i hear the mother weep and hold her daughter’s hand saying” it’s beautiful”. I was touched and amazed by this small act of kindness by these strangers.
