  1. I would expect to read more intelligent news in this website. Are the reporters publishing “none sense” news just because there is nothing to fill here? If it was inter city or inter state competition, then that would have made a sense. Reporting Inter apartment football competition is just a joke. Such happening are in every nook and corner of the U.S. in our community.

  2. Inter-apartment football tournament concludes…too cheap news!! Lots of events like Dashai programs are unfolding in different states: there was a huge concert in GA a couple week ago,A big Dashai celebration was done in CA a couple days ago, Texas Bhutanese had a big Dashai gathering past weekend…these event didn’t get space here but an inter apt football tournament did. This is Bcoz the editor lives in Kentuky so he just locally collected that event and posted here. …lets not emphasis on such petty events. We log into BNS not to see who from which apt got married or played football among themselves. BNS pls don’t be too cheap!! TP’s absence is not being felt here.
