Understanding cultural nuances

Understanding cultural nuances

Ceremonies, protocols and etiquettes are integral part of Bhutanese expression. Attending public events help understand societal norms, belief and value system and people, better. As I reflect on the promotion ceremony I attended at the Royal Institute of Management, I learnt that the gho (black) I put on is not so ceremonial.
