Subject: cyber monument?
May 14 2009 08:19 PM

How about a virtual monument on the worldwide web that people around the world can add content for years and years. It can be a place everyone can visit from anywhere, and become a living monument. Family and friends can add detail to those who lost their lives or suffered in detention because of their actions. This monument can only grow in stature and interest over the years, be a source of inspiration and education, and never be in danger of becoming run down or torn down for unforseen reasons in the future.

How about doing something for the families as well and increase the amount of contribution?

Subject: Monuments are not enough
May 14 2009 06:56 AM

While I commend Dharamsala for this initiative, I believe more is needed if we are to sustain the memory of those who have been killed. Monuments alone will not be enough. Our school children should be taught about them and about Tibet in the schools. It is a shame that SFT and others are not permitted to present in our Tibetan schools.

What is this about collecting only Rs. 3 and $1? It will cost more (administratively) to collect this amount. C'mon, have some common sense. This symbolic tax makes no sense. You cannot even buy a tea for Rs.3 or $1. If one was to use symbolism, why not one hour's wage or even one day's wage?

Monuments alone are not enough. Let us educate our youth and our citizens.

Subject: Monument..

Good idea....

But it would be the best if many ideas are entertained before rushing to erect a piller...

Monuments are meant to last, if not forever, for some generations...so it occured in my mind, whether it is wise to build something very much tibetan in a foriegn land..

If we built it in India, the country which is not ours, can we guaratee that this monument will not be subjected to demolition in tune with the changing circumstances in india's political scenario?..

We witnessed in the recent year that India didn't spare anything that comes on the way of her progress.

Will this structure be ever endearing to our hearts in the times to come?
