An Open Letter from Karma T. Dolma Chair/CEO
HUMMINGBIRD CHILDREN’S TV (Jepey Hung Hung Bja Loknyen) programme is a saintly golden project, initiated by golden hearted people Mr.Lobsang Tenzin (Khenpo Lobsang Tenzin) in partnership with Mr. Marc Cote, Fake Digital Entertainment, and many other far sighted people who cannot help but think globally. Bhutan and the Bhutanese are going through a crucial time and changes are accelerated by media, especially tv for little ones. With no Bhutanese tv programme for children, they are exposed to other, non-Bhutanese, and off age activities whereby our language and culture is becoming secondary. Little ones in Bhutan can speak Hindi better than any other, influence of “Chota Bhim”.
This programme will shape and mould little Bhutanese to be a better human and citizens, a dream dreamt by all parents and country. When we are bringing up children, we are not just bringing up ours or others children, but the future of all. That’s why it becomes every individual’s responsibility, as it’s no more just an individual, family, institution’s or country’s issue … now it is a global issue. Think big and long term, dream big and long, but plan phase by phase, … starting short, with sure footing and with a sustainable plan, understanding that it takes time to build.
However, the need is urgent, because in reality this would be the greatest present for every Bhutanese parent. This animation project aims at little Bhutanese children in particular and would be purely in Bhutanese (dubbed for global audience), based on Bhutanese folk tales . We hope to make it child friendly, interesting+ educational. They would not only learn our national language in the process but will be able to gather information about our history and culture. Besides, our theatre / production house would also serve as center for our young energetic Bhutanese youths who are really enthusiastic about animation creation but do not have means to do so.
