DHARAMSHALA, Dec. 10: Tibetans in Dharamshala braved the dipping temperature to celebrate the 29th anniversary of the conferment of Nobel Peace Prize upon His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1989.

The official function of the Central Tibetan Administration at Tsuglagkhang courtyard saw Rajya Sabha MP Pradeep Tamta presiding as the chief guest. Andrea Papus Ngombet Malewa, the president of Global Coordinator attended as a special guest.

The day, also observed as World Human Rights Day, marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

Speaking on the occasion, Tibetan President Dr. Lobsang Sangay said, “Article 1 of the UDHR declares, ‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.’ However, the fundamental principles enshrined in this milestone document in international human rights are trampled upon in Tibet under the occupation of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime.”

Besides the official celebrations, the day saw some new enterprises starting operation today.

A futsal ground called Tokyi Futsal was opened near Norbulingka by the proprietors of Nicks café, Mcleod Ganj. Tenzin Kunsang, the young man behind the idea said: “Since there are a lot of Tibetans interested in football, a futsal would engage them in a good way.”

Tenzin Migmar, a young Tibetan professional dancer, opened a fitness and dance studio called ’Upside Down’ on Jogiwara road. The studio announced B-boying, Zumba and other dance forms.

Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (TIPA) released its 2018 Yarkyi album while Men-Tsee-Khang (Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute) conducted a free medical camp. Students for a Free Tibet (SFT) carried out a sticky note writing activity to engage the public about the human rights situation inside Tibet.
