On the occasion of Independence Day of India, I humbly wish Happy and Proud Independence Day to:
1. His Excellency the Indian Ambassador to Bhutan and the Indian Diplomatic communities in Thimphu and Phuentsholing.
2. The Hon'ble Major General, Commandant of IMTRAT and Indian Training and Intelligence Forces in different parts of Bhutan.
3. The Hon'ble Chief of DANTAK and communities of para military forces of Indian Defence and Construction Force in all parts of Bhutan.
4, The Indian Air Force Corp at Bhutan International Airport, Paro, Bhutan.
5. The many fellow Indian Engineers and thousands of Indian civilian construction forces and communities in Bhutan.
I take advantage of this spirit of your Independence Day to request all of you to kindly understand and also convey to your Government, Indian Security Forces, your colleagues and fellow proud citizens of the Republic of India that the foundation of Indo - Bhutan Friendship would be forever truly strengthened if whole of India bears less suspicion of the genuine and crucial national aspirations of sovereign Bhutanese people and our sovereign Kingdom. The citizens of giant India and tiny Bhutan are not brothers and sisters but genuine well wishing neighbours we always could be for centuries to come. I pray that both Bhutanese and Indian political leaders appreciate the fact that general Bhutanese citizens like every citizens of small nations in the world strongly object to their beloved Country being reduced to big neighbour domino.
May India develop genuine friends among her South Asian Neighbours.
With deep respects and admiration to all Freedom Fighters of India who made great sacrifices for this Day.
Tashi Delek India on Independence Day !
Yours truly a friend from Bhutan
Sangey of Haa Wangcha, Bhutan.
