After paying last homage to the body of late Rai, who was serving a social animator at Bhutanese Refugee Women Forum, at a condolence ceremony and funeral rites on the bank of Ratuwa River today morning, various speakers expressed heartfelt sorrow at the demise of the woman leader at such a young age.

“Subba’s demise is a huge loss to our community,” Camp Secretary, TB Gurung said.

Subba breathed her last while undergoing treatment at the BP Koirala Memorial Hospital, Dharan for “high doze injection” at the last stage, said Subba’s husband Ramchandra Kalikote. The Subba couple tied their knot some nine months ago.

“She was neglected for her cure by the AMDA,” the deceased youngest sister Rita Subba told Bhutan News Service. According to her, doctors at Dharan had expressed their worry over the use of “high doze injection” at the event hour. “I have lost my sister at such a young age,” She lamented, “She died of minor disease which could have be easily cured.”

Late Subba’s husband informed BNS that she was delayed for an hour in Biratnagar hospital since AMDA representative did not comply to supply a vehicle immediately. According to him, Subba was later taken to Dharan on their own expenses.

Despite repeated attempts, AMDA authority was unavailable for the immediate comment. It is a common practice in camps that usually no calls, even from media, are being entertained on Saturday and Sunday.

Meanwhile, The CPB-MLM central committee’s members Sandhya and Umesh jointly offered the party’s flag as honor for the contribution of late Subba in Bhutanese democratic struggle.

“We have lost one of the dynamic women who was always ready for everything,” Umesh told while addressing the gathering before the dead body was cremated. More than 3,000 people were reportedly gathered during the function.

Subba was the founding Chair of the party’s woman body as well as central committee member since 2001.

Correction: The name of late Subba’s husband which appeared otherwise in the previous post has been corrected-Ed.

  4. There is no pain you are receding
    A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying.
    When I was a child I had a fever
    My hands felt just like two balloons.
    Now I’ve got that feeling once again
    I can’t explain you would not understand
    This is not how I am.

  12. I express my heart-felt condolence at the untimely demise of late Rupa Subba. I had personally very closely known Lt. Subba since our initial years in camps because of her bold and courageous spirit in giving the right shape to the society. Of late, I had also come to know that she was affiliated to the Communist Party. She was an emerging woman leader. Its highly regretable that we never met again after our days in the Tri Ratna Secondary School in Beldangi -II camp. May her departed soul rest in peace.

  25. We on behalf of our great n glorious party would like to extend heartfelt condolence to late Rupa Subba.Athough she was latest in the vikapa led ‘party’ we regard her as one of the senior communist activists of Bhutan.There are so many misteries in her life.Therefore,we suggest neither to exaggerate nor to devaluate her deeds n positions taken by her in her life time.

  26. We are truly saddened by the untimely demise of Rupa. She was an amazing girl and committed towards the Bhutanese revolution.

    Her passing will not only leave a void in Bhutanese movement, but in the hearts of everyone who knew her, Rupa’s memory will always remain deep within their heart that inspire them towards the struggle.

    URFB express it sincere condolence at the death of Rupa Subba.

    With deepest sympathy,

  27. I am disheartened by the sudden and untimely demise of Ms. Rupa Subba and so is the case to all of us because Rupa Subba was one of the most prominant wonam signatroy in Bhutan. Her contribution in the field of woman leadership, literature, and society deveopment can’t be substituted for long.

    Let the bereaved soul of Lt. Subba rests in peace in heaven and I pray that the almighty God will grant the family of Lt. Subba to convert the mourning into strength.

    I wish Ms. Subba is back in Bhutan for the sake of the country and countrymen !!

  28. O Captain my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
    The ship has weathered every rack, the prize we sought is won,
    The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
    While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
    But O heart! heart! heart!
    O the bleeding drops of red,
    Where on the deck my Captain lies,
    Fallen cold and dead.

    O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
    Rise up–for you the flag is flung for you the bugle trills,
    For you bouquets and ribboned wreaths for you the shores a-crowding,
    For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
    Here Captain! dear father!
    This arm beneath your head!
    It is some dream that on the deck,
    You’ve fallen cold and dead.

    Really bhutan missed a bold, revolutionary and courageous women.I express my sincere condolence at the death of Rupa Subba
