  4. Dear Parsu,
    It is with great pleasure that I offer my congratulations for winning this prestigious award. The talent you often displayed in your works and commitments proved to be no fluke, and your winning this award bears it out. The improvement you consistently made over the past years right from Haa to Australia attests that hard work is the real key to success. And, here, I would also like to let you know, the expectations for a repeat for me have been raised, and I look forward to to be congratulating you on your another Award very soon!

    As far as I know, no other Bhutanese has achieved success with such a streak. I wish these successes will further equip you with humility and steadfastness bringing everything you attempt in to successful conclusion.

    Parsu, often the public like me is let down when a hopeful candidate is alleviated to a position, but everyone I know who voted for you or well wishers like me expects you to be the exception to that rule.



  5. Parsu vai,
    Once again, let me congratulate you publicly.
    “An activist is born” and we all hear the pleasant cry like that of a new born baby. I trust that you will take it as a small step towards a bigger goals to promote multi-cultural values in our society despite all the caste and creeds and make our community more respectful to others as they are. I also liked the “inclusive” approach that you all are doing with Shri Gazmere. Hope to hear more from Australia to serve as an example for rest of us around the world.
