    Hello Everyone:

    I don't know if this is the right place for this question.  I've posted in the politics section, but I think this is a topic that affects everyone, believe it or not. Because the issue of Tibet is the issue of human rights around the world.  You may be for or against the Olympic Torch running through Tibet.  You may be for or against the demonstrations that are taking place.  But if you spent any time with Tibetan people, you would understand why their culture deserves to be preserved.  And if you've ever felt like life was unfair or trampled upon by governments or invaders, you should see what the Tibetans have been through.  So please take a moment and visit the Amnesty International website, or Students for a Free Tibet, or the International Campaign for Tibet.  I'm not adding links, because if you're interested, you've probably already signed petitions.  Even if you're not interested, please take a moment to respond why.

    Thanks so much.  Wishing you blessings!!!!

    Tibet is on the other side of Himalayas, whereas India is on the south, flanked by very difficult countries on the east and west, and the great Indian ocean on the south. I think Tibet is about the size of India area-wise. The population is about a crore! Strange countries coexist as neigbours! It is a pity that former rulers of Tibet has not attended to strategic issues.. only religious issues! That is why the Dalai Lama could not defend himself and his people from the Chinese assault. Had the former Tibetan rulers looked into strategic issues, history would have been different now.  It is also a pity that the small kingdom of Nepal held it for ransom for over a century! Tibet had to send money and materials as duties!  No one will believe !!   Now, the Dalai Lama's pity is that he is knocking at every door to restore his kingdom to him. Even if he gets it back, can he take defensive actions against any hostile nation?  The Dalai Lama should clear these doubts first... before requesting assistance.. ??????
