The Bakasura

During one of my tours to Samtse, I wanted to try some Indian food on the other side of the gate. Walking into one of the hotels, I asked the man in the counter if I could get some rice and mutton curry for lunch. He looked at me and said, “If you eat more than three plates of rice, there isn’t enough.” I was amused and at the same time it made me wonder what had prompted him to ask me that particular question. So I asked him why he had asked me that question and if I looked really voracious. He said that many Bhutanese eat many servings of rice. He said that some of the Bhutanese, especially those “Resettled ones” eat at least four servings and then bargain for price like bargaining for clothes. Well, I guess that’s what Bhutanese are good at.
