A huge thank you to Katri Dr Lobsang Sangay for visiting Australia to meet local Tibetan Communities and to enlighten and seek support from the Australian government and public on the critical situation inside Tibet. To share a few things that I have observed during the Katri's visit;

- strong show of support from local Tibetan Communities and Tibet supporters
- a good media coverage on national papers, radio and TV news
- my favourite is the National Press Conference http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-06-26/national-press-club-lobsang-sangay/4094066
- meeting with parliamentarians, politicians, pro-democratic Chinese groups, academics
- Katri's talks to and interaction with the Australian public and media are just to the point, optimistic and very inspirational. (I really enjoyed it so as many others who I know expressed the same)

- unsurprisingly the Australian government paid no attention to Katri's visit. In fact, even the opposition leader ignored the visit by saying, "If the Dalai Lama is in Australia, I’m happy to meet with him as an important spiritual leader but I have no further plans to meet Tibetans this week."
- Journalists and others called upon Katri as Tibetan PM in exile and the Central Tibetan Administration as the Tibetan government in exile. There may be a Indian legal/political reason for using the term CTA but in practice it is much sensible and more powerful for sustaining our freedom movement to use the term "Tibetan government in-exile". To call the the central body of our diaspora exile community a Central Tibetan Administration is confusing to outsiders and denigrating to our freedom movement. Personally I can easily relate myself to be part of Kyab-jor shung but unsure about the U-bodmi dig-zug. Since my parents were forced to leave Tibet and exile in India, due the Chinese invasion, I became a part of the Tibetan Government-In-Exile by default, unless I defect the exile government. I am wondering what next Tibetan generation will be thinking when they think of being part of the CTA or U Bodmei Digzuk?

Long live Katri
