Crying for Freedom

What has driven the peaceful and pious monks and nun to take such drastic step of burning themselves in protest against the Chinese rule in Tibet? How far such frustration, and desperation are representatives of the entire Tibetan populace? There are more such questions in our mind than we can find answers to them. In any movement or struggle, there are emerging leaders for revolutionary movement. The fiery self -sacrifices  of these nine-Tibetan youth since March this year showed a new tactic  and new leadership in fight for the Tibet cause. it  might become a triggering point in a new kind of campaign against the Chinese rules that cost lives. That deviates somewhat to our principles of nonviolence and peaceful movement.

 Each time the news of another burning reached the outside world, Tibetan in exiles are tinged with sadness and remorse. Prayers are said, and protests are held to amplifying the Tibetans crying for freedom.
is that all Tibetans in exile could do to solute the ultimate sacrifices of the these young patriots?  For they have given their lives for ours.

A group of Tibetan will be meeting today to mull over the possibilities and feasibility of what Tibetan diaspora
could do to serve the wishes and aspirations of the perished and alive heroes of our time.  At the same time, they are stunningly curious to understand the underlying angst of their courageous actions.
