By the way, WCO means, World Customs Organization and ROCB means Regional Office for Capacity Building (for customs)
I am writing this post, drunk, but touched altogether. I feel wordless to thank the Secretary General, WCO and the Head of ROCB AP for visiting our country. I am deeply moved by the kind of affection WCO have for Bhutan Customs administration. Even in my drunken mood, I am hopeful that such affection, care and gesture will go a long way in furthering the capacity of our administration. Thank you WCO and Thank you ROCB AP.
I enjoyed the bonfire with Bhutanese brewed araa. I also enjoyed the company of many other dignitaries. Although little skeptical, cultural programs were wonderful. The mask dances and traditional songs I found were as sacred as it were meant to be. Dinner was delicious and so was desert. There were stars and no rain from the sky. No cloud either! So I am presuming that our guests loved the night.
When our guests finally resigned for the day, I had the privilege of meeting our colleagues from our head office. Once again... And over a cup of araa, I think I did my best to explain as to why integration among our colleagues is important. I think I drank Rinchen sir's coffee also. Did I discuss about my transfer ????? I think we also discussed many other issues; both sensible ones and nonsense, All in all, I came to know that many things are indeed happening in Customs department.
And the last thing I remember is our Director thanking me and my friend Tashi, personally, for the beautiful night. He shook hands only with us!............ I felt wordless! I don't know whether two of us deserve the credit altogether, but the way he pronounced our name, it melted my heart. I think he acknowledged the fact that even a person like me do not go unnoticed.
