“The Humble King of Bhutan

Picture of the king of Bhutan, doing the rounds on Twitter, will make your heart melt.
The king, Jigme Kheser Namgyel Wangchuck, is seen chopping onions and chillis to prepare food for children at a community school in Mongar.
The Dragon King, as he is often called in the kingdom, was also in the news recently when he planted thousands of saplings to celebrate the birth of his son.
The kingdom of Bhutan takes environmental conservation very seriously, and by law, 60 percent of its land must be under forest cover.
The king’s kind gesture that is resonating with millions on social media shows how the powerful king has his heart at the right place. With a King like him, no wonder Bhutan is one of the happiest countries to live in.”

It’s important to remember that this is the same country that uses the concept of ‘Gross National Happiness’ to measure and encourage the happiness quotient among citizens.
