THE TIBETAN DIARIES (UNHEARD)
Volume - 2 Issue - 12, Pages - 5748-5769
My tryst with the life of refugees began when I was barely ten years old when my parents
frequented the refugee camp for us to enjoy the much affordable eateries, especially, the soups and
noodles it was famous for. Little did I know then that my inclination towards such aspects of
human life will become my mainstreaminterest in life.
My purpose of making this paper was to self enlighten myself with regard to the future of the
Tibetan refugees that have been in exile for almost 60 years. Also, I want to present to the readers
many facts that have been under oblivion in context of China's real motive behind the
ostensible modernization of Tibet Autonomous Region. Starting with the onset of the cultural
revolution in China and its aftermath on the Tibetans who were forced to vacate their own
homeland, divested off their cultural identity and ethnicity. My focus from the Tibetan refugee
camp in Delhi's Aruna Nagar or popularly known as 'Majnu-Ka-Tila', takes a transition from their
microcosmic existence (in India) to their place of origin, Tibet Autonomous Region. From the
views of the experts in this field whom I met at various open discussions on Tibet; with the help of
the Delhi office of Central Tibet Administration and Resident Welfare Office of New Aruna
Nagar Refugee Camp and the guidance of Dr. Joyeeta Bhattacharjee, I have concluded how
China is the cause of Tibetocide and the global silence on this poignant issue ofjustice denied.
