A lecturer at the Tribhuwan University has expressed that resettled Bhutanese would never forget their identity and nationality despite news challenges faces them in resettlement countries.
In a special interview with Bhutan News Service, Tara Lal Shrestha (Ph.D) said that even genes of resettled Bhutanese have retained their nationality, and feeling of being Bhutanese citizens.
Shrestha’s Sapanako Samadi, a research-based novel on the Bhutanese refugee issue, has recently appeared in the Nepalese book market.
According to Shrestha, resettling Bhutanese are not opting to lead new lives in western countries at their own will. “It is their compulsion since no doors for repatriation have been opened as of now,” he said.
He further said, “I am sure the Bhutanese identity will never die.”
