The cost of onions and tomatoes in the vegetables market has been hiked beyond acception. Forget the cost hike of other commodities, it has gone beyond its horizon. I just wana to stress about the cost of tomatoes. Here in Wangduephodrang, the cost of tomatoes per kilogram is ngultrum 150/- as of today. Taking one thousand bugs enable me just to fetch a small bag of vegetables. Wow! Really is it the advance growth in the country’s economy or is it that the country is trailing its economy. Before 2008 a kilogram of tomatoes cost ngultrum 15/- where as now 150/-. There is fluctuation to the value of currency within. Now ngultrum 1000/- note just equalizes Nu. 100 before 2008. During my training period I was able to survive with 1500/- bugs stipend but now I am having difficult time to survive hand to mouth with 15000/- bugs. After 10 years, there will be 10,000 note to equalize the present 1000 note... and 20 to 30 years from now, we might need to carry a sack of money to buy one small thing.
