Voices in Exile

 
Rajiv Mehrotra (Editor)
Synopsis

There are an estimated 150,000 Tibetans in exile around the world, primarily in India, who have no country to call their own. Together, they have kept the issue of Tibet alive on the global agenda through non-violence and compassiona rare achievement in human history. For more than fifty years in exile, they have continued to maintain their identity in the face of assimilation, under the guidance of their spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

How do those who have lived all their lives in exile view Tibet? What do they want of their nation? How do they reconcile their ancient culture with modern progress? In this book, contemporary Tibetans speak about what it means to be a Tibetan today. Ranging from contributions by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his democratically elected political successor, Lobsang Sangay, to pieces by Tibetans from around the world, this book is a compilation of diverse voices in exilewriting with passion, hope and despairon issues of culture, language, identity and integration. Powerful and thought-provoking, Voices in Exile is a sensitive portrayal of a community torn asunder by violence.
