The Spider and the Piglet
Proceedings of the First International Seminar on Bhutan Studies
Edited by Karma Ura and Sonam Kinga
The papers in this publication were presented at the first International Seminar on Bhutan Studies, which was held from 20-22 August 2003 in Thimphu. The seminar was attended by 23 scholars from various parts of the world. A total of 29 papers on a wide range of themes such as culture, religion, economy, environment, development issues and international relations were submitted for the seminar. Among the papers presented during the seminar, two were in Dzongkha. However, one original Dzongkha paper could be translated into English and included in this publication. The other two ethnographic studies in Dzongkha, one on Mongar and the other on Bumthang, are being published as monographs. The Centre for Bhutan Studies has recently published the biography of Hungrel Drung Drung titled ‘The Gem- Necklace of Short Biography of Hungrel Drung Drung and His Descendents’. Its English translation, ‘A Brief Account of Hungrel Drung Drung’ has been included in this volume. The Centre for Bhutan Studies would like to thank the authors for their contributions.
