A Journey of Two Nations in Time

Contained in 134 pages, the book ‘Eternal Knot’ describes the friendship between two nations; India and Bhutan starting from the signing of the Indo-Bhutan Treaty of 1949 till the dawn of the new era in the journey of the two nations. The book exudes the vivid history of the two nations starting from His Majesty The Third King in Bhutan and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in India to His Majesty The Fourth King Jigme Singye Wangchuck in Bhutan and Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in India and till the time covering His Majesty The King in Bhutan and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in India.

The ‘Eternal Knot’ has captured the journey of the friendship between two countries very well that one can recommend the book as a source of history as well as the resource material for teaching history and social studies in the schools.

The descriptions decorated with beautiful pictures are a plus point of the book. This book contains a rich collection of some rare pictures through which one can not only see but visualize the whole journey of the two countries.

I would highly recommend the schools to enrich their libraries by adding a copy or two of this book and encourage our children and teachers to keep updated with the journey that Bhutan has embarked on.

It is a must read for our generations and future generations to find out how forefathers built the friendship between Bhutan and India at the same time maintaining our identity and sovereignty.
