First up many many happy greetings to you and your family from the sweltering Gujarat. I hope my epistle will find you and your family in the best of health and happiness.
Secondly, I would like to share with you the kind of concern me and my parents in Shingkhar share about the coming of Golf course. Since this is not a new topic and more in the interest of time saving, I would not like to go into detail.
Honestly, the way things are taking shape in Shingkhar with regard to Golf course, have not only affected the daily lives of our innocent parents. But it has also created a wave of worries that equally affects Shingkharpas who are away from home currently (like Me)

In the light of matters reported in the Kuensel Issue on 27th Oct 2011, Golf Course I would like to request Dasho to kindly visit the place and verify the facts and report it to the concern decision makers accordingly.
It's painful to hear that our illiterate parents being black mailed by so called the "Gup"..Its also worrying thing to see and hear our Gup (Local leader) resorting to such a means. (threatening the innocent villagers). I think our Gup's motive needs a through scrutiny and investigation by the concern authorities.
I am far positive that our parents are better than those third parties when it comes to making a decision that is going to affect their generation and ancestors. Moreover, Even the deparment of forest and park service's legitimacy in conducting study after study are highly questionable, as it involves cost to the public exchequer.
Lastly, Shingkhapras are far far more capable of becoming someone other than a gatekeepers, ball boy or night guard at the Golf course that was (is) unanimously rejected by Shingkharpas.
Therefore, I would like to request Dasho to use your own judgement as a son of a humble farmer yourself. I would also like to request Dasho to kindly do your own assessment (if possible) on this issue and report it to where ever your esteemed office deem necessary.
