What a hassle!

I needed to send some money to my dear husband in India who is due to return very soon and so I asked my sister in law to do the necessary. After going to the Bank she calls me saying that the Bank is refusing to send the money due to the rupee crisis. They had asked her to get a statement from his University with a copy of his student ID card.

I called my husband and asked him to send the documents. Again my sister in law goes to the Bank to sent the money, this time equipped with the necessary documents. Guess what the Bank said! They said they can't send the money. I mean SERIOUSLY! Do they thing this is a joke or what! People take a lot of trouble to carry  out their stupid things just to be disappointed in the end.

But this is not the end of it. Then the Bank asked her to write an application and put it up to the Manager, which she did and then the Manager tells her that they can only send the money if we have the approval from RMA. Well, wouldn't it have been easier to just tell us that in the first place instead of harassing us so much. And so we were able to send the money after three days of hard work and it was seriously no thanks to the Bank!

Made a promise to blog at least once a week but that's easier said than done. Of course I stayed true to my promise but the erratic Internet connection makes it extremely difficult for me to keep my promise. 

Elections are finally over but the talk still seems to be there because of the obvious reasons. I can't believe we are having to witness so much drama in a democracy as young as ours. I wonder what else we might have to witness as we progress. Our kings handed us democracy on a silver platter and now it's become a huge pile of stinking s**t. Wouldn't it be better for the previous Government to gracefully step down and fulfil their duties and in case the new Government proves to be slack then do whatever might be necessary. 

Poking their nose where it's not wanted just makes us think that the Bhutanese people have make the right decision and kills all sympathy that we might have for them. 

Now all that's left for us to do is wait and watch I guess. Hopefully this time we won't have to cry rivers of tears. Looking forward to bright sunny days!
