Subject: Debate is key to strong democracy
Jul 23 2012 07:08 PM

I think people like Sutse and Assanga miss the big picture. In order to have a strong democracy, we need to be able to debate the actions of the politicians who work for us.

Our elected officials are neither kudraks nor rinpoches -- they are simply politicians. They are falible. We owe it to our democracy and our nation to speak up and voice our opinions.

Those people who think we should keep quiet seem to think our nation is too "weak" or "fragile" to stand some well-intentioned debate. I think this is refugee mentality, and wrong. We are better than that, we are stronger than that.

My humble thoughts.

Subject: Let us be critical only if deemed
Jul 23 2012 08:33 AM

Agree with Sutse. The sacrifices by our bretherns in Tibet should awaken us from the slumber in our cocoon.

Katri LS just completed one year. Criticism is okay only if it is backed by genuine motive. Otherwise - it is destructive.

We lost our country because our leaders got caught in the quagmire of the little problem in own shell and didn't see the world outside. Time is now truly running out for us that is why our brothers and sisters in Tibet have been offering their most precious belonging which is their life. Let's not too critical of TGIE. As an elected leader, Katri Dr. Lobsang Sengay is doing a remarkable job. No doubt we have elected the right Katri. We should be all thankful to Katri for utilising everything he achieved in his life for our country. I can testify that during his visit to here in Australia, Katri Dr Sengay did something magical in finding the spot for Tibet in all the major media here. The problem in Tibet wont be solved over night and if ever it will get solved then we must ensure we keep the issue of Tibet alive on the world platform and we continously carry on our freedom movement. To do this we need the right leader equipped with modern education specially international diplomcy, I beleive Katri Dr Sengay has all that. Let's support him whole heartedly and do what each of us can for our country or at least start thinking of what each of us can do for Tibet. Let us put aside all our differenes of choka, religion, political view etc.
Long live Katri

Subject: Wrong Equation

It is quite sad that also the new Kalon Tripa believes in the wrong equation: Nonviolence = Middle Way, and Violence = Independence. I hope that the newborn Tibetan National Congress, with a Gandhian inspiration, can rectify this harmful cliché.

I really appreciate the TPR article. But every time you guys are like TGIE is doing this and not doing that. It is very discouraging for us to see you guys pointing fingers. Do something if you are that capable. We are in exile and don't even have a handful of land. If we have country then i can understand the criticism but right now we must work together.If they are people in TPR who are really good then it is time you guys to come up.

Subject: number one priority
Jul 06 2012 02:26 AM

I'm quite shocked to hear that Lobsang Sangay administration's number one priority is to raise the profile of the elected leadership. (Does he mean himself because the other kashag members are appointed by him?)But I'm not surprised at all. Our kalon Tripa's personality is little bit bordering on narcissism. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it doesnt cross over to full blown narcissism. little bit i think is healthy.

Surprise 1: Kalon tripa was true in his statement based on his own experience. The other interpretation is just TPR's "may be or could be or what about that" kind of presumption.I can say, all Self-immolation happened when i turned 26th!
Surpise 2: Well, almost all the kalon tripa in exile hasn't experienced the kind of tragic events that would put them into sleepless nights with political uncertainty and dilemma.Those former kalon in Tibet went through tough times but those are normal natural events of war and invasions.
