Description:
A fascinating account of ancient culture colliding with modern media. Tucked between Tibet and India in the Himalayas, the kingdom of Bhutan is one of the most isolated and beautiful countries in the world. In The Dragon's Voice Australian journalist Bunty Avieson provides a glimpse of life beyond the country's exotic exterior. As a consultant to local newspaper Bhutan Observer, she admires the paper's strong social conscience, but finds herself constantly challenged in a country where spirituality and Gross National Happiness take precedence over work. Bunty also witnesses the tensions that arise as a Buddhist kingdom makes the transition to democracy. How can deference to authority be reconciled with the need to ask hard questions of politicians? Does the courtship ritual of of 'night-hunting' have sinister side, or is it a rural practice misunderstood by city dwellers? And what place does activism have in a culture that prioritises peace? With a unique blend of memoir and reportage, The Dragon's Voice is both a deeply personal story and a vivid portrait of a nation on the cusp of revolutionary change.
