DHARAMSHALA, Oct. 7: The second day of the Central Tibetan Administration’s ‘Five and Fifty’ vision meet saw exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama attend the proceedings labeled a “brain storming session” by President Dr. Lobsang Sangay.

Since the conference is held behind closed doors, there is no information on what the Tibetan leader has said. Yesterday at the opening day of the three-day meet, President Sangay was reported by CTA run Tibet.net as saying, “We have chosen each one of you individually by looking into your longstanding contribution towards the Tibet cause, or for your expertise and experience in the field of international relations.”

“After the forum, we will formulate our future course of action by taking into account your inputs. Therefore, we would want you to advise us just as you would advise your respective governments, MNCs or organizations that you work for,” he further said.

The inaugural function yesterday saw speakers such as Noted Indian academic Dr. Meenakshi Gopinath, Political strategist Jamie Metzl, German politician Dr. Schwartz Schilling and Taiwanese parliamentarian Freddy Lim.

Former Kalon Tripa Prof. Samdhong Rinpoche at the welcome dinner Thursday said, “His Holiness the Dalai Lama will live for a long period of time, as he has promised to the Tibetan people. However, there is a limit. In the absence of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Tibetans could be on the verge of its darkest days. In such a scenario, only the democratic administration established by His Holiness would be able to steer the Tibetan people,” he was quoted saying.

Over 185 participants, including 82 non-Tibetans from 21 countries have converged in Dharamshala for the three-day forum.

The ‘Five and Fifty’ vision, one of Dr. Lobsang Sangay’s flagship policies, was introduced in May last year at the swearing-in ceremony for his second term as the Sikyong or President, the head of the Tibetan polity. The policy calls for a revitalization of the Tibetan people’s struggle to seek genuine autonomy through the ‘Middle Way Approach’ in the next five years from Beijing while strategizing to embolden and sustain the Tibetan movement over the next fifty years as a contingency plan.
