Kuto was born into a life of terror. His parents were always on the run, moving from place to place in an attempt to escape the persecution they faced. As a result, Kuto never had a chance to settle down and live a normal life. He was constantly living in fear, not knowing when or where the next attack would come from.
One day, when Kuto was just six years old, his family finally ran out of luck. They were caught by their pursuers and brutally killed right in front of him. Kuto himself barely escaped with his life; he fled into the wilderness and wandered for days until he finally collapsed from exhaustion.
When he woke up, he found himself in Bhutan – a country that was relatively unknown to him at the time. He didn’t know how he got there, but he knew that it was somewhere safe; somewhere far away from the people who had killed his family.
For weeks, Kuto survived off whatever food he could find in the jungle; eventually making his way to a small village where he started stealing food to stay alive. It wasn’t long before he attracted attention and was soon caught by local authorities.
