भारतको पुर्वोत्तर अहिले तातेको छ – छुट्टै गोर्खाल्याण्डका लागि भैरेको आन्दोलन र डोकलाम गतिरोधका कारण । भिन्न जातीय पहिचाहन सहितको अलग गोर्खाल्याण्डको आन्दोलनले मलाई भुटानमा विद्यमान जातीय विभेद र देशबाट लखेटिएका हामी र हाम्रो पहिचान बारे केही बोन मन लाग्यो । एउटै भाषा बोले पनि हामी आफूलाई नेपाली, भुटानी, गोर्खाली, आदि ठान्छौं । हाम्रो पहिचान…
