Bhutan in the Gulf

Met a Bhutanese national for the first time who is fluent in Hindi at a Canadian Cafe in Muscat. Asked her how she knew India's so called national language as I heard her speak to her south Asian colleague and the tall yet petite woman quipped in a shy manner 'I am a big fan of Bollywood and especially Salman Khan movies' I then asked her how did she find Tubelight (the latest Salman Khan release, and she was emphatic that Salman did not suit the role and that Hrithik suits such emotional roles better. Globalisation is cross cutting with intersectionalities, as soft power and newer avenues for migrant labor open up as far as Thimphu.
