    Just as the 1st Prime Minster, Nehru, you will convey to your countryfolks that there is a country in the North of India called Bhutan where people are happy with happiness and live in peace. I hope, your Excellency will write in memories, a book that Bhutan exist as a nation with pride. Please tell that Bhutan has its own flag; own currency; own language; people with beautiful heart always worried that glacial lake as result of global warming would be a problem to their friends in plains of India. Give our regards to the friends in that my country exist as a buffer zone and they need not worry about the Chinese flu. Cheers, long live Indo-Bhutan friendship.
