Readers' Comments on "‘We have a sickness in us’"
The word made me flinch. ‘Sickness’. As she spoke, my Tibetan friend gestured towards her chest with a short sharp movement of her hand. ...

Beautifully written observations of the reality of life for Tibetans all around the world. Breaking the silence is long overdue and it's important that not only Tibetan's speak out, but Westerners as well. Idolizing the Tibetan culture has in a way made liars of us all, in truth there is freedom. And that truth is beautiful, terrible, real and worthy of our love and compassion.
Thanks for your writing.

What I am apprehensive of is of a deafening silence in post Tenzin Gyatso era of our struggle.

Are we ready to break that silence?

Subject: Return to the Mao era
Dec 17 2012 03:36 PM

With refernce to the authors comments on Jinping recent speech a noticable change is already occuring. The abandonment of lavish motorcades, his one day of comparative freedom for weibo users to air their grievances publicly and slam the corrupt officials. A recent BBC report highlighting the corrupt and hollow college system, that is stealing millions of dollars in fees for bogus diplomas. Interviews with some of the students sent out alarm bells as they angrily demanded a return to the real Communism of Mao. It is not just Tibet that faces an uncertain future , we are all prisoners of China in one capacity or another. The International community should take real notice of the way China is moving. A poor peasant woman was asked why she was so determined to raise the huge sum of money to send her daughter to college, when no guarantee of a proper education could be given. She raised both her arms , she had no hands. "My pig bit my hands off, I cannot write, that is why my daughter should go to school". The question now arises, why did her pig bite off her hands, surely they were the hands that fed it. One can only assume the pig was subjected to cruelty and as a last resort to demonstrate it's misery bit off her hands. Will the Chinese never learn.

The 2 articles submitted by Jamyang Norbu, that have caused so much controversy, attracted 75 comments in total. Along with numerable comments on Facebook highlights what this article is saying.All the reports on self immolation and arrests etc have not generated the same amount of feedback. What has been achieved with the 75 comments? or the articles themselves?

Thank you for taking the time to write. The general Western silence on the one hand, even while publishing Chinese reports as possibly credible on the other, is very upsetting, so I was heartened to see your attempt to bear decent witness to this tragedy.

This good article has, it seems, been read 1,043 times - and yet no-one has commented to date. Have Phayul readers adopted their own ‘silence’?

Thank you Clare Blackbum. He was able to put what exactly I & many Tibetans are feeling inside & difficulties faced due to ignorant & silent nature of rest of the world.
