    People of Bhutan

    The people of Bhutan are friendly, warm, and hospitable. They invite complete strangers in their homes to share a meal or a cup of tea. They are a bunch of curious and amiable folks ready to exchange greetings and show the best of their country.

    So, don’t be surprised and don’t get it wrong if you come across people who say “Would you like to have something?” or “You can stay at my place tonight.” They simply mean it in good faith.

    Strong family bonds, friendship, love, and respect for elders are the values most Bhutanese cherish. They believe these values are the primary fiber of social harmony. That’s why in most households huge extended families live together, headed by a matriarch.

    Bhutanese are karmic conscious and firmly believe that being good to living beings is a license to happy life, both in the present and next life.

    Of the total population of about 700,000 people, more than 75% live in rural areas. Agriculture is the source of their livelihood. People in the west and south grow a plenty of paddy rice, their staple. And those in the east and central regions live off maize, wheat, buckwheat, and barely.

    Bhutan also has highlanders living 4,000 meters above sea level. They rear yaks and barter yak meat and other dairy products with day-to-day essentials.

    The country’s population consists of three major ethic groups: Ngalong, Sharchop, and Nepalese. Ngalongs live in the western region, Sharchops in the east, and Nepalese in the south.

    Ngalongs and Sharchops are of Mongoloid stock and the Nepalese Aryans. Sharchops are believed to be the earliest inhabitants of Bhutan, although their origins are not known. The Nepalese are the economic immigrants who settled in the country in the late 19th and early 20th century and were later naturalized.

    Bhutanese are polyglots, although the national language is Dzongkha. It is the mother tongue of the people living in the western region. There are 18 dialects spoken in Bhutan. And some of the vernacular languages are under imminent threat of extinction.

    Most Bhutanese who have been to school speak English as it is the medium of instruction. Since English is spoken widely it is considered one of Bhutan¹s selling points.

    Bhutanese men wear gho, a robe-like attire pulled upward till the knee forming a fold at the waist. The fold is made fun of by foreigners as the biggest pocket in the world. In fact, it is the biggest pocket. You can carry a child in it.

    Women wear kira, a kimono-like ankle-length dress with a separate top called tego. The ghos and kiras are woven with intricate designs.
