  1. It is mentioned that the Bhutanese Community in Arizona (BCA) is going to hold a Nepali Musical Nite on October 20 on the eve of the great festival Dashain…

    Would it not be appropriate to say they are going to hold Bhutanese Musical Nite instead? Because what Bhutanese do anywhere in the world is Bhutanese activity. As long as their identity remains as BHUTANESE all cultural activities/events they organize/perform in their native language/custom/culture should be called as BHUTANESE. We are just happy that Nepalese share our culture/customs with us.
