  2. this is the first stem of your career please. as everyone knows that first step is done because it is time to be prepared for the second step so bhutanese Artists are planning to step in second step i belive so hurry up

  3. The first and foremost objective of Bhutanese Artists group of Georgia was to preserve our ancestral culture and our belongings. We now are more than happy to see the steps taken by BAG members to preserve our culture. We have seen it.Transparent clothes by performers, is a good example of cultural preservation. Second picture shown above adds a sugar to the preservation.
    On the other side…They have been continuously organizing cultural programs and campaigns at the festival time…Like, there was a grand Dashain celebration before one month of Dashain.
    Way to go BAG…Way to go….
    Well wisher…

  4. Bhutanese Artists of Georgia ( BAG) is getting on next level of stairs. These folks have worked very hard for the Bhutanese Community. Their entity is nonidentical and can not be interrupted by external influence. I solute each member of BAG for their unity and sincere commitment.All their act is towards preservation of culture,arts,literature and etc.of Bhutanese people in a foreign land.
    No matter what people say, BAG please keep up and move forward. Let old school folks not divert your concentration.
    Thanks

  5. Hi BAG {jhola} what you have inside you BAG, culture or proud? we have seen your every programme but along with your good programme you people have big proud, think you are now masters of Bhutanese community. That is why you are jhola, wanna put all people on it ”right”? Hey you guys, why you betried Agam gurung? do you know you is he, he had contributed all his life in refugee cams just with people like you guys, he lead people like you back in Camp but we have not seen any kind of proud and jelous in him ever. But you crazy people had just arrived in America you think now you are smarter than any one? Be careful guys there are lots of young people growing better than you. everyday is not sunday. Be good model for Bhutanese Artist Group if not so than you are not allow to represent for Bhutanes Art because we bhutanese have good manner and respect for other.

  6. THIS IS FOR BAG AND IT’S MEMBERS.
    YOUR GOOD DEEDS ARE REMARKABLE BUT IT’S NORMAL IN OUR TYPE OF SOCIETY NOT TO TALK MUCH ABOUT GOOD THINGS. PEOPLE DO NOT TALK ABOUT GOOD THING RATHER SPREAD BAD ONE QUICK IN NO TIME.

  7. Artists Of Gerogia,
    GOOD NEWS MOVE IN SNAIL PACES, BAD ONE IN LIGHTNING SPEED.

    THE LEVEL OF CONFIDENCE AND COMFORT YOU HAVE EARNED IS NOT AT ALL DOWN YET AND I HOPE IT WON’T. MOVE ON WITH CLEAR,COMFORTABLE, SUITABLE,AND ACCEPTABLE AGENDAS AND DISREGARD THOSE NONSENSE WRITES UP OF SUCH REBEL AND WELL WISHER.
    ONE THING YOU GUYS SHOULD NOT FORGET IS, YOU ARE COMMITTED TO COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT IN DIFFERENT WAY THAN OTHERS BECAUSE YOU BELONG TO THIS COMMUNITY,IT’S YOURS AND WE ALL SHARE EVERY THING THAT HAPPEN HERE. SO BE VERY CAREFUL WHILE PLANING POLICIES AND REGULATION BECAUSE IT’S SENSITIVE AND FOR ALL. AND MAKE SURE IT’S NOT HURTING THE SENTIMENTS AND EMOTIONS OF THE COMMUNITY MEMBERS. PLEASE DO NOT LET PEOPLE THINK THAT BHUTANESE ARTISTS OF GEORGIA, ARE ALIENS OF DIFFERENT PLANET CONDITIONALLY MERGED TO THE BHUTANESE COMMUNITY, IF YOUR GOALS ARE SET IN THE BEST INTEREST OF BHUTANESE COMMUNITY. AND THIS MAY BE IMPORTANT ONE, CHALLENGES ARE YOUR STEPPING STONES.

  8. editor,
    well,i am a regular news reader of bns.i was just hung up with the unlegitimate writeup of mr rebel or whatever.I just thought rebel’s way of presenting was not genius as he is disgished .I am a member of bhutanese community so Ijust thought that i would support the right for community promotion through your esteem site.

    And i wrote reply to him.But i see several other mails simillar to rebel COMING UP LIKE BROKEN RECCURE AFTER I SENT YOU MY REPLY TO HIM .so, what could be the reason for not posting my reply?I might not have known much about what you considerto post the articles.IF M NOT RIGHT PLEASE LET ME IF YOU HAVE WAYS TO DO SO IF NOT I WANT TO FIND WAYS TO REACH MR REBEL
    THANK YOU
    MISSILE FOR REBEL

  9. Thank you editor for publishing my second write up which has given me enormous trust and strength on you to send again my previous writing. Hope you will post it. The bns, from my personal level, as such is a platform that I have always been calculating to have been the most influencing one to shape the community, in which you guys are opted for.

    Rebel jee, are you just cutting loose because the independent existence of BAG has got on your nerves? It seems that your dream was to make BAG your begging bowl (Jhola) to embezzle money but you had to go away empty handed so you come to think of it as BAG (Jhola),did i get it? I know, I hit the iron when it is hot and tried your patience.
    I can tell from these low expressions that you are` up to no good. I know you inside-out. There is somebody to blow your cover. A little bird told me how you are designing to create a fork in the journey of Bhutanese community.
    Hey guys [BAG] don’t yield to his threats. Mr. Rebel is just a black sheep in the community. He is a big fish in a little sea and don’t deserve to stand up for Bhutanese Community. This man is endowed with crab nature since long.
    Well, you are just keeping posted about your vagabond identity you have developed among vigilantes in the camp, keep renewing it every after an event.
    Mr. Agam Gurung might not have his positive consent to write about what you misinterpreted about his musical achievements in the camp. I guess every Artist would have respect for Mr. Gurung. You are the Architect of the matter and you are trying to make him a subject of your bush-league game. Did you tell him honestly your intention? Were you scared of truth being established? I only understood that you hate BAG. But didn’t understand what the problem is.
    You did not explain about the issues regarding Mr.Gurung instead you have only passed the bug to artists almost losing your temper tantrums which reveal that you are the propeller of this fork creating bush-league game.
    Hey guys you’re cool and it’s cool too that you stand for entire Bhutanese community. Be consistent with being true artists independently. Be firm to develop your proficiency level. All the best.Aite

    A missile for rebel
