The cell buzzed as I was coming out of the class. I
looked at the number and found that the caller was a friend. She doesn’t
usually call me without any reason so I picked up the phone and asked her the
reason. She shouted excitedly “Our King is getting married”. “Hey, hey, cool
down and tell me the whole story” I asked and she went into details about the
announcement made by His Majesty at the end of the inaugural address at
the seventh session of Parliament in the morning of 20th May (yesterday) in
The news was a mesmerizing one. When the British Royal Wedding was broadcast
live a few weeks earlier, I was watching it with my friends and family and
wishing for similar news for our bachelor King. There couldn’t have been a
better time for our King’s Wedding announcement.
We felt a need to celebrate the news and it came as an invitation to the
live show by an influential businessman of the area where the Bhutan Star 2010
top 5 contestants performed their musical talents in the evening. Basking in happiness
of the Royal wedding announcement and watching the show was a great combination
for the day. We could only make this wish from our heart “May the king and the queen live forever in the realm of happiness” .
