Living amid Covid-19 in Bhutan

October 6th, 2021

Bhutan Media Foundation (BMF) launched a book titled, ‘Life and Living in Bhutan Amid Covid-19’ yesterday.

The book, which consists 39 stories, details how individuals, communities and civil society organisations took part in the battle against the pandemic.

The stories covered many themes on voluntarism and sacrifices made by Bhutanese, agriculture and farming, education, teaching and learning, family and quality time, religion and spirituality, welfare and compassion, tourism and film industry, habits and hobbies, love and violence, arts and cultural and media and internet.

BMF’s executive director, Needup Zangpo, said the book has stories of ordinary  people and not about  public authority and leadership during the pandemic of Covid-19.

“The community stories are a tribute to the leadership of His Majesty The King, the government and community leaders,” he said. “It is also a tribute to the resilience, solidarity, and community spirit of the people of Bhutan.”

The publication of the book is supported by the Canada in India (High Commission of Canada).

The copy of the book will distribute to the various library of the school across the country and to the people.
