From the 10th century, Bhutan’s political development was heavily influenced by its religious history. Various Buddhist sect children emerged and were protected by Mongol and Tibetan kings. After the collapse of the Mongols in the 14th century, after the collapse of the Mongolians in the 14th century the sect’s children competed with each other for supremacy in various politics and religions, and eventually led to the rise of the Drukpa sect children in the late 16th century. The country of Bhutan is one of the few independent countries in their history, never be conquered, occupied, or ruled by a power of a foreign country but this is independent of the status as a country that occasionally pays tribute Although there is speculation that Bhutan was under the Kamarupa Kingdom or the Tibetan Empire in the 7th century to the 9th century but this is not supported by sufficient evidence. From historical time it is clear that Bhutan’s Nehara has continually and successfully maintained its sovereignty In 1907 Ugyen Wangchuck was elected as Bhutan’s heir was crowned on December 17, 1907 and was appointed head of state, titled “Druk Gyalpo” In the 18th century, Bhutan invaded and occupied the kingdom of Cooch Behar in the south. In 1772 Cooch Behar requested assistance from the British East India Company or the eastern Indian britain company to drive Bhutanese from their territory then A peace agreement was signed in which Bhutan agreed to withdraw from its borders before 1730 However, the peace was tenuous, and border battles with Britain continued for the next hundreds of years. Eventually the battle led to the Outer War between 1864-1865 After Bhutan lost the war, the Sinchula Agreement was signed between British India and Bhutan. As part of the recovery of the war, the Duar nation was handed over to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in the form of a rental exchange. The agreement ended all hostilities between British India and Bhutan. Subsequently in 1910 Bhutan signed an agreement which prevented the United Kingdom from interfering in Bhutan’s foreign affairs. on 15 August 1947 India gained independence from the United Kingdom which signaled Britain’s departure from the land of India and Bhutan became one of the first countries to recognize India’s independence. The country of Bhutan began to slowly emerge from its isolation and began a planned development program. after that the Bhutan National Assembly, the Royal Bhutanese Army, and the Royal Court were formed, together with a new code of law. The State of Bhutan became a member of the United Nations in 1971.

Agriculture provides livelihoods for more than 80% of the population The agrarian practice of the State of Bhutan consists mainly of subsistence agriculture and animal husbandry. apart from that, handicraft, especially sewing and art production for household appliances, is a small industry owned by the people First Country without cigarettes The country of Bhutan is the first country in the world to issue regulations banning the sale of tobacco products in 2004. Furthermore, since the beginning of 2011 Bhutan has tried to impose stricter penalties in the form of monetary and prison penalties. If you take a vacation in Bhutan and get caught smoking without a permit you can be thrown in jail According to the new regulation on Tobacco Control Action issued by the Bhutan parliament and implemented by the Bhutan Narcotics Control Agency. The regulation applies whether it is a Bhutanese or a foreigner anyone who is in Bhutan and wants to use tobacco products. The new regulation on the prohibition of using tobacco products, once made a Buddhist priest threatened with five years in prison. According to information from the police he is 24 years old and was caught having 72 packages of tobacco without being able to show a permit. Most Bhutanese, who are predominantly Buddhist, think smoking is bad for both mind and body. Both in terms of religion and culture But many young Bhutanese oppose the new rules with several arguments and the regulation is considered to violate their rights, especially the young bhutan. There are also Bhutanese who think the government is really being unfair to cigarettes But there are those who think that the government’s idea is very good. Because without sanctions, smoking cannot be truly monitored. Country without tv and internet In the country of Bhutan, TV and the internet were officially banned until, were permitted again in 1999. Because they don’t want to make their citizens feel isolated, finally the King of Bhutan decided to cancel the regulation In 1999, the King began to lift TV and Internet bans, that made Bhutan one of the last countries to introduce TV. In his speech, the King said that TV was an important step for Bhutan’s modernization but most importantly the King warned against the misuse of TV because such abuse can erode traditional Bhutanese values. No traffic lights Traffic lights do not apply in the country of Bhutan, precisely in the city of Thimpu, the capital of Bhutan. This region is indeed no traffic lights at all. And what’s interesting is that the only traffic lights that have ever been installed actually make the driver dizzy. Bhutan residents prefer the traffic police to manage the roads rather than traffic lights. The traffic system in Bhutan is quite simple This happens because the number of cars and the population is also not much that is, with a car population of only around 75,000 for a total population of around 750,000, so no wonder the highway there is usually quite empty from passing vehicles and just install the traffic signs the community already understands. hunting girl in the middle of the night Until now, Bhutan still carries on the Bomena tradition or ‘hunting for girls in the middle of the night’. This tradition has been practiced in eastern Bhutan in rural areas for centuries. Bomena tradition is known as a way for local residents to get their life companion. Men are allowed to look for young girls at night. But before sneaking into the girl’s house, men consisting of several people had arranged schedule when will come to the girl’s house. Then the men cooperate with each other so they can enter the house of the coveted girl. it seems easy, but to be able to sneak into the girl’s room is not very easy. Most traditional houses in Bhutan consist of two or three storey buildings where the top room is used as a bed. The houses are also guarded by fierce dogs. In order to enter the room, the man needs various tools to open the wooden door latch. If they cannot get through the door, they must try to find their way through the window or from the attic roof of the house The struggle is not finished until here. then when the man reaches the coveted girl’s house the man also has to find out where the girl sleeps The situation is more difficult because they have to search in the dark The more difficult because many traditional Bhutanese families sleep in one large room used as a kitchen, living room and bedroom. So that the Bomena tradition can run smoothly, the men find out where the girl sleeps by learning the coveted girl’s family habits while attending Losar celebrations, Losar is a celebration of the triumph of Bhutanese citizens over its crimes symbolized by Goddess Durga killing the demon Mahisasur. With all this complexity, it is not uncommon for the young men to guess the coveted girl. other than that the most unique, the condition of midnight where family members screaming was reasonable and conversely, many also secretly enjoyed the man’s visit.
