Why Bhutan is Different from Rest of the World?

1.      Bhutan plants trees to celebrate birthdays while rest cut cakes and drink
It may be hard for people around the world to believe but Bhutanese planted 108000 trees on 6th March, 2016 to celebrate the birth of Royal Prince. This plantation encapsulates wishes and prayers from the citizens of Bhutan for healthy growing and long life of the Royal Prince. I hope this is an inspiration for the rest of the world to preserve and promote environment.

2.      Happiness in the ultimate goal
Bhutan values happiness over money. All plans, polices and programs in Bhutan is guided by a development philosophy called Gross National Happiness. This philosophy takes care of unique features like psychological well-being, Time use, cultural resilience and promotion and environment which are rarely captured in other development philosophies. This philosophy also sinks very while with Buddhist teachings as both seeks towards eternal happiness over temporal materialistic well-being.

3.      Democracy was a gift while rest of the world has to fight for it
Who does not love to have power? If given the opportunity, everyone wants to rule their country on their own will. Democracy is viewed as the best form of government but even at this age we see some countries fighting for it. While in Bhutan democracy came as a gift from the throne. Neither we asked nor did we fight. The Fourth King of Bhutan voluntarily introduced democracy in 2008 through the adoption of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Bhutan.

4.      Bhutan do not have auto traffic systems though we can afford it
Well, developed countries want everything to be fast and automatic and many developing countries aspire to be. However, everything in Bhutan is cool. Bhutanese live by the principles of Buddhism and we do not intend to harm each other thus everything, even the traffic gets into systematic form through mutual understanding.

5.      Bhutan believes in sustainable future
Bhutan can become rich over night if it cuts down all trees and peruse industrialization, but we don’t want to become rich. Bhutan accords paramount importance to its environment as it is the component that provides life supporting elements. Nature is very uncertain and if calamities hit Bhutan, there would be left nothing back to rely on. Our economy of scale is small and we will be doing things that are best for us.

6.      I don’t claim organic but Bhutan’s products are natural
Bhutanese practices sustainable agriculture and the use of chemicals in highly regulated thus ensuring natural agricultural products like rice, vegetables and fruits.  However, Bhutan is also working towards going 100 per cent organic through National Organic Program by 2020. If this is to happen then Bhutan will be the first country to go 100 per cent organic.
