I wanted to Discuss Olympics and Baburam wanted to discuss Refugee problem

"Why Everyone in the World Should Cheer on Bhutan at the London Games" published by "The Washington Post, Social Reader" was our initial topic for discussion. But somewhere in the middle of our discourse, a man named Babu Ram jumped in between and tried to steel our discussion with his "100K refugees" problem. Apparently a lady named Shristi Shrestha, also had the same opinion as that of Babu Ram. Although Shristi had not much to say but Babu Ram's  insane statements were hurting and at the same time annoying. Going through his comments, it gave me an understanding that he passed those comments based on his wild assumptions and rumors. I pity him for his lack of knowledge on the issue and I offered my humble suggestion.

Please read the excerpt


Babu Ram · Manila, Philippines
I don't know why no media talks about the 100K refugees were made by Bhutan.
regime during 90s. They were forced to leave country ( Bhutan) and were living.
in Nepal for decades. Now some still in Nepal, some are in other countries.

I am not being rude here....it's only people like baburam who is trying to sell his stupidity here by bringing this senseless topic......we are discussing Olympics and not so called your infamous100K refugees. Personally I will never acknowledge that as a serious issue between Nepal and Bhutan.........Now can we only discuss Olympics here? Nevertheless, I wish you both (Babu ram and Shristi) good luck. May Nepal win lot of medals in Olympics........

That refugee thing is very long story to be discussed here.........and apart from our own personal opinions, I don't think neither of us are competent person to comment on this. If you still find my response unacceptable then I am helpless.

The article also says Gross National Happiness which contradicts with the refugee thing...Anyway, good luck with Olympics and medals. Peace!!

Guys! Peace! First clarification: I am Nepalese. I used to hear this refugee news here and there during 90s and early 2000 and i believe its a valid concern to know.

Dear Baburam,

It would be my humble suggestion that you be careful with the news that you get from "here and there" Even though it may be a "valid concern" I dont think you are not the valid person to raise such issues in the first place. Second of all, i think you are nobody to say what contradicts what in our country.....
If your hands are at all itching to write then please do so with substance and justice. Otherwise don't try to complicate things unnecessary. As far as I know, Bhutan and Nepal have a good relation. And as a citizen of Bhutan, I would always work to keep that good relation going. Like you, We, Bhutanese do hear lot of problems and criticisms about Nepal too. But it is not in our blood to either ridicule or disgrace our neighbour. The reason is simple, We respect your country's dignity.

Now its upto you to show some sense or continue showing your mindless presence in this platform......

Note: there were also few other Bhutanese people who responded to his accusations, but I have only reproduced my responses here

  1. Hmm..looks like similar incidents were raised by the Indians affected during the Bhopal tragedy. The British high commisioner said that We are into Olympics not into politics and incase we are trying to gain upper hands with the latter,it is pity. All the more, it is a sorry state that Baburam or Shristi of whatevr fame try to gain attention for dirty beginning. We have more Nepalis in Bhutan living in harmony than the refugees trying to bargain! Cheers!
