So many good things have happened and so many people were involved either directly or indirectly in making things happen for me. I am thankful to my friends and dearones for their support and encouragment. I am thankful for the success and acheivement that comes on my way, despite of all the obstacles and challenges. Everything is so internected, and everybody is contributing in s different subtle ways  for the good things to happen. I am thankful to the ones who shared their sincere opinions on an issue of concern, so that widened my perspective and enable me to look at the issue from different angles. I am thankful to the ones who believed in me and who stood by me when the going is getting tough. I am thankful to my dearones who understands me and trust me without any question. And I am also thankful to those people who have also shown how the the world is imperfect.
The most important thing and a joy of life, which is truly immeasureable is our little Kunsal. Words can not express the true gratitude, and happiness parents experienced with the birth of their child. Kunsal is life's biggest and invalueabel gift for us.

Specialized education

In a recent address to Tibetan university students in Delhi, HH the Dalai Lama stressed on the importance of specialized education for young Tibetans. This is not his first mention and nor it will be his last. 50 years in exile, the Tibetan society has improved tremendously on literacy rate. Every year hundreds of Tibetan students go to colleges as they graduated high school and around the same number of students  completed their 3 year college degrees in India and come back to soceity to serve. But how many of them have successfully took up positions or  the challenge  to serve. It is not the mumber of graduates that counts, but the quality of their education and the skill that that they brings to put to use. That is why specialized education is the  buzz word.

Oba Mao

What ever I read, in the Newyork Times, Washington Post, and all other major international news gave me the impression that Obama's visit to China was a win-loss situation, as AP reported "produced no tangible wins for the United States".

Critics accused Obama for being "too soft" on China. While China managed to get what they asked, U.S did not get anything substantial in return. However, His Holiness the Dalai Lama does not think, Mr. Obama is too soft. "it was just a different approach or style in dealing with the Chinese leadership, H.H said during a TV interview in Delhi".

Tawang trip

His Holiness the Dalai Lama's visit to the disputed region of Tawang, once again reaffirmed India's control of the terriority. This is one of the most remarkable political statement that India has ever made with vision and boldness. By allowing the Dalai Lama to visit this disputed terriorty, India drives home three important points. First, The Dalai lama is a respected guest, and he is free to go anywhere in Indian terriority, Second,
India sends an imambiguous signal that Auronachal Pradesh is a part of India, and India would not barge under any circumstances.
Third, India signals that the Chininese government  can not dictate its terms on India.

Strength in diversity

Chinese government is fully comprehending the media influence in shaping people's perceptions, as Bejing multipled its media channels, airtime and  its out reach to the world. When Chinese government extended government run media to a global audience with the aim to dominanting world opinions, then a Chinese  high officials put it this way "which ever nation has the highest capacity of media, it controls the world". Bejing has given the same importance to Tibet area, with the launch of Khamba dialect TV satellite  in late oct this year. Tibetan in exile are also aware of the crucial roles media plays, and besides an important part of the democratic society.Dharamsala launched its first local TV channel, just a week ago, with the aim to set up a satellite channel to reach all Tibetan settlements in india, nepal and Bhutan.

A big Chinese company fooled hundreds of poor  Tibetans, and the Chinese government stand by the cheater and hauled those pathetic tibetans out of the protesting vicinity in show of force. what could happen to these Tibetans now ? if they were Chinese, would it make a difference? Will they have a more positive ending to their plight? is it not right to say, the Chinese government is run by a group of thugs, who forceably removed these Tibetans from the site of the company. The Tibetans were not given the opportunity to voice their concern, the company did not heed to their complaints. here is the details;
law abiding citizen demanding restitution for the losses incurred as consequence of joining the TIENS corporation. It is unthinkable,that the government backs up the very company that foul played with these rustic villagers and illterates.  This is yet another example, of how Tibetans can never trust the Chinese.
