book1

Settlement Planning for Refugees: Australia and the United States – Venkat Pulla and Om Dhungel

In Australia, where the financial benefits allowed for a longer resettlement period that facilitated English language skills acquisition and training for redeveloping of work skills before seeking employment, better long-term outcomes were possible and fewer social and emotional issues arose.

book3

Nepalese Community of Western Sydney (nCoWS) – Annual Report 2008

It is amazing to see how many of our children have developed and enhanced their artistic skills and also their confidence on the stage. This gives us great assurance and comfort that our young generation will not only continue but will further promote our tradition and culture and add to the richness of multicultural Australia. A lot of credit goes to the mentoring, coaching and the leadership provided by the ‘artistic’ parents.
Thank you all.

 

review

The Bhutan Review

Thanks to Digital Himalaya for scanning and preserving the back issues of The Bhutan Review which was published by the Human Rights Organization of Bhutan in Kathmandu for almost 4 years from January 1993 to October 1996. Mr Bhim Subba, former Director General of the Department of Power, Royal Government of Bhutan was the editor and main driving force behind this publication. Mr Om Dhungel, former head of Planning and Development Division in the Department of Telecommunications, Royal Government of Bhutan worked closely with Mr Subba as the co-editor and kept it going despite various challenges.

Both Mr Subba and Mr Dhungel had earlier fled the country in protest against human rights violation perpetrated by the government and its discriminatory policies targeted against southern Bhutanese of Nepalese ethnicity. Mr Subba now lives in Canada while Mr Dhungel lives in Australia.
These issues of The Bhutan Review can also be accessed directly through the Digital Himalaya website: http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/journals/bhutanreview/

“The Bhutan Review was published by the Human Rights Organization of Bhutan in Kathmandu for 3 years (from January 1993 to October 1996). For observers of Bhutanese affairs, and particularly of the refugee crisis that led to the flight of 100,000 ethnic Nepalis from Bhutan in the early 1990s, it was an alternative source of beautifully-written analysis and commentary that was by turns skeptical, passionate or ironic, and was sometimes also very funny. We are very pleased to preserve this very rare archive for posterity. Digital Himalaya has scanned back issues of this publication to encourage wider distribution of this unique record. – Digital Himalaya
