The story plot
In the much anticipated bilateral treaty of 1624 AD furnished between the then Nepal (Gorkha) and Bhutan, Nepalese immigrants were formally accepted as citizens in Bhutan. These innocent Nepali-speaking Bhutanese were betrayed by the Bhutanese regime in late 1980s and early 1990s as they were forced to take refuge in Nepal to lead sub-human life. The ongoing resettlement program has scattered these refugees to various western countries, but their search for a nation would continue forever.
