Happy Coronation Day!

King of Hearts

I join the nation in celebrating the first coronation anniversary of His Majesty the King. On behalf of the opposition party and the People’s Democratic Party, I offer our humble felicitations to His Majesty the King. On this joyous occasion, we pray for His Majesty’s wellbeing and long life, and rededicate ourselves to the service of the tsa-wa-sum.

The photograph, already an iconic picture, shows His Majesty inspecting the armed forces during the Coronation Celebrations in the Changlimithang stadium on the 6th of November 2008, five days after receiving the sacred dhar from the Machhen of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal at the Punakha Dzong.

The banner also features His Majesty inspecting His troops during the Coronation Celebrations. The picture isn’t too clear. But I like it. It was taken by Galek, my daughter, aged nine then.
