  4. Bhutan needs to build a wall to protect itself

  5. Wild animals are afraid of noises as they becomes suspicious and nervous,recorded sounds of explosions,firecrackers,lion roars,hung bamboo chimes,wind chimes,pots and pans etc,reflecting hung CDs,shining objects etc,spreading tiger poops around the perimeter of your field deters wild pigs,wolf and foxes.Growing bamboo creates exports potential,fruits trees and honey may be possible too.

  6. It's Thomas Jefferson's agrarian republic

  7. too much Indian influence will not Destroy the environment but also culturally traditionally and socially which is an evidence on the 8 Indian northeastern states. These states can be another Bhutan if not merged with India in 1950 thinking that India will give them a better life.

  8. If bhutan sells hydro power to Bangladesh both country will be profited Because bd's needs more electricity to keep up ongoing Development.

  9. Mankind was NOT made to eat money. We are designed to eat what grows out of the ground

  17. India should help Bhutan to settle it's debt and must provide financial assistance to this friendly state….. Jai hind

  18. Really they are very humble and friendly neighbor of India… Lots of love from India.

  19. Bhutan also does not use a lot of pesticides so the country has clean water and clean air. I think they should get a break on the money they owe.

  20. Sigh, please do not follow all the destructive policies of West, Bhutan. They should modernize to improve quality of life. To support this country in doing this would be commendable for other counties.
