Dasho Paljor DorjiThe fourth king’s cousin, Dasho Paljor Dorji (or Benji, as he likes to be called) was instrumental in forming the first Bhutanese NGO—the “Royal Society for the Protection of Nature”. He candidly shares with us how he contributed to the development philosophy of Gross National Happiness and helped guide the devolution of power from absolute Monarchy to a constitutional Monarchy. He provides a compelling perspective as to why the Fourth King made such visionary decisions for his country and what challenges now face His Majesty, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck.
