Tibetan Refugees in India: Education, Culture and Growing Up in Exile

 
Mallica Mishra (Author)
Synopsis

This book seeks to address the key issues concerning Tibetan refugee community in India. Offering a nuanced understanding of their socio-cultural and educational reality, it describes the steps taken by the community to preserve their civilization in exile.

Focusing on how education for the Tibetan community, as conceived by the Tibetan Government-in-Exile, is not only about protecting and preserving their tradition, but also engaging with modernity, it recognizes the dilemmas that the community grapples with in trying to achieve a balance between ‘tradition’ and ‘modernity’ in education and the strategies it has employed to deal with the issue. Finally, it examines the educational options available to the Tibetan youth in India, the curriculum and pedagogy in schools and the impact that these diverse backgrounds have on Tibetan youths, their sense of identity, the idea of Tibet in their imagination and their attitude towards the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan struggle.
