“Soelra” from our Her Majesty the Queen, Gyaltsuen Jetsun Pema Wangchuck - Kadrin-che-la Mewang-Choe
2020 was struck with a worldwide pandemic, a disease that found its way into the land of the thunder dragon, Bhutan. With panic and fear engraved into the hearts of the citizens, our country had no choice but to go in lockdown. Despite the occurrence of this unfortunate event, we as citizens have been able to see the rays of hope in the darkness of Covid-19. Had it not been for the rapid solutions and leadership of our beloved King and Queen, we would be helpless. Fortunate as we are, we are also being sheltered under the protection of our Dharma Kings, His Majesty the King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and King Jigme Singye Wangchuck.
Amidst this lockdown, people faced many challenges, family schedules went upside down, and basic necessities of the people especially of young girls in boarding schools ran short. Even money had no meaning; the lockdown was lifted, unlocking empty shops.
On the other hand, we are blessed to have received this valuable “soelra” from our Her Majesty the Queen, Gyaltsuen Jetsun Pema Wangchuck. No words can express our gratitude for this heartfelt and thoughtful “soelra”; even then we would like to sincerely thank Her Majesty for being our light in the darkness. We pledge our loyalty for all times to come. Kadrin-che-la Mewang-Choe…
