But things don’t remain same. Karma, the wife, on reaching town starts hearing various calls of so called modern life. She gradually doesn’t have much time for her children and husband as she is seen busy with another man. Her absence from home even at night becomes frequent. All get disturbed; children cannot go to school on time and Wangchuk cannot perform well in his professional life.
Karma, later as expected leaves Wangchuk and children, and goes with that man who claims to have money and cars, and loves her. Wangchuk gets reduced to the lowest level of life. Children keep on asking whereabouts of their mother. And he even gets terminated from the company.
The Kadrinche, brings various domestic problems in Bhutan which are either not known or addressed by victims just to maintain pride and dignity as humans. Most importantly, it brings the correlation between success in professional life and productivity of students at school with the quality of their domestic lives.
We know that life won’t be fair for all times. This book teaches us to remain humans especially at such times because all things have end and it’s often when we are being reduced to the lowest, we can discover the gold in us.
The story is lucidly written with predictably realistic plots. The only thing I don’t like about it is the disclaimer statement. Because it isn’t a fictional story and such story can never be fiction in Bhutan. I can also give hundred and one proofs.
When you turn its last page and conjure the whole story, you’ll be surprised to see that you too or someone with whom you are very close to have gone through either whole or at least some phases of Wangchuk’s life. Read the book and see yourself. I can assure it will provide you a good read.
