It was a dream comes true

Bhutan Times - - Editorial -

Thou­sand throng the Cham­ling­methang sta­dium in the wee hours of the 11th Novem­ber to cel­e­brate the 60th Birth An­niver­sary of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo. Peo­ple from all walks of life gather to pay their homage to the Great King who has done so much and have kept noth­ing for him­self.

The sta­dium was packed to its ca­pac­ity and peo­ple came as early as 3 am in the morn­ing to get the best seats. Af­ter the full ca­pac­ity of the sta­dium, peo­ple were ac­com­mo­dated in the foot­ball field which be­comes full within no time. With the chilly win­ter weather it was not easy for the older and the younger ones to make to the sta­dium on time.

The sta­dium was well dec­o­rated with ban­ners, flow­ers and bal­loons. The weather was very per­fect to cel­e­brate the birth­day of the fa­ther of the na­tion. There was serene in the air and the laugh­ter and the gig­gles that filled the air as peo­ple make their way to the sta­dium.

With the ar­rival of the white horse at the Changling­methang sta­dium which leads the Chip­drel cer­e­mony peo­ple glued their eyes to the pro­ces­sion just to have the glimpse of the Fourth Druk Gyalpo. A Dharma Raj as what His Majesty the king de­fines our Fourth King.

As His Majesty the King ad­dressed the na­tion there was calm­ness in the sta­dium as peo­ple lis­ten to him. The words from the King were as heavy as the gold and too pre­cious to be dis­carded. Dur­ing the speech His Majesty shared the vi­sion our Fourth Druk Gyalpo , his achieve­ments and his love the coun­try and the peo­ple. The scar­i­fies he made is im­mense and as re­marked the deeds the fourth Druk Gyalpo is like an ocean, too vast to nar­rate.

The cel­e­bra­tion be­come more mean­ing­ful as His Majesty the King an­nounced about the birth of a baby Prince in Losar next year. Peo­ple from the crowd ap­plauded as soon as the an­nounce­ment was made and tears ran as the news feel into the ears. The news of the new Royal Prince was so be­fit­ting on the oc­ca­sion of the cel­e­bra­tion of the 60th Birth An­niver­sary of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo. The past, present and the fu­ture of Bhutan was to­gether and as said it was all due to the good luck and for­tune of the Bhutanese peo­ple. The Bhutanese peo­ple have now no rea­son to worry and now Bhutan is safe.

With His Majesty’s Fourth Druk Druk Gyalpo’s deep con­cern for his peo­ple it was amaz­ing to see His Majesty mov­ing from tents to tents en­quir­ing about the peo­ple. Peo­ple en­joyed his hu­mor like our neigh­bor and feel ac­com­plished to see the Great King

As peo­ple move home af­ter the day as re­marked by a group of Thai tourist dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion “It was dream comes true.”
