  1. Here I can give some very important pictures of those Tibetan that are not seen in the TV and media maybe u think I m laying but it is true I m not against the Chinese people ,actually I know Chinese language and custom so I like those Chinese people I know they history I m deeply impressed . Looking back to the history Tibet was a nation but we give up this, you can read and know it from history of British India Nepal and Chinese history itself
    We are brother and sister also I am very sorry for the loss life of Chinese Han in the recent event but from the government side only explaining that side and not those snaps that are available in ( so click here. We want to live together happily but we need to understand each other and government should provide demand of Tibetan people we don’t seek a free Tibet. Now we accepting to live together side by side and also some of the media are misinterpreting the Tibet issue as a nationality lever like Han and Tibetan. This is totally wrong we are same people we need to respect each other we need happiness. We don’t want to separate china but we want to live together as a nation with genus autonomy.

  2. Hello,

    I work for an Al Jazeera English television programme called “The Listening

    Post”. In our show, we analyze the media and look at how the media worldwide

    covers different news items.

    For your interest, here is a link of our playlist


    — all the shows we have done on the Listening Post — so that you can get a

    better idea of what we are all about.

    For our upcoming show, we are looking at the media problems facing Tibet in

    its current conflict with China — what kind of censorship exists in Tibet?

    Who is censoring the media in Tibet? Is the worldwide media able to access

    information on Tibet? What is the relationship between China and Tibet in

    regards to media freedom in Tibet?

    I’d very much like to include you in this program considering that you have

    written several posts on the subject of Tibet and the media. To include your

    opinion on the above questions, I’ll need you to record yourself on a webcam

    or videorecording device and email the file to us (the instructions are below

    for how to upload it to us).

    I hope you get a chance to record this and email it to us (all the

    instructions are below). I’ll need the file in our inbox (the instructions

    for how to upload it to are below) by Tuesday 1 April

    morning time GMT (London time) at the latest, otherwise we won’t be able to

    use it as that is our edit deadline. Please note that your submission must be

    in English.

    Best regards,

    Shirin Sadeghi
    Al Jazeera English’s “The Listening Post”




    1- Find a quiet place to record your comment, so that background noise

    doesn’t cause a problem. Overhead fans, open windows, air conditioning – all

    of these can create a hum in the background. Try to switch them off before

    you make your final recording.

    2- Be aware of what is in the background as you film — make sure it’s

    nothing you don’t want us to see, and try to keep it plain.

    3- Secure the camera on an even surface so that it doesn’t wobble or shake.

    4- Frame the picture so that you have your head and shoulders in frame with

    about a quarter of the frame left empty at the top, for head space.

    5- Make sure there is light on your face – a lamp facing you is a good option

    6- Make sure that your microphone is directed towards your face

    7- Record on your webcam software OR quicktime (.mov)


    1- Look straight into the camera when you speak.

    2- Speak clearly and not too quickly.

    3- Start your piece by saying your NAME, PROFESSION and LOCATION

    4- Hit RECORD and count 5 seconds before starting. Also count 5 seconds after

    you’ve finished speaking. This is necessary for edit space for us.

    5- Record around 1 or 2 minutes. Ultimately, we will edit your piece down to

    about 30-45 seconds, so keep that in mind.


    1- Once you are happy with your piece, save it and upload it to (you may need to register for free first).

    2- Direct the file to

    It would be helpful if you included the source for many of your postings.
    Good job with the blog. Are you able to study written Tibetan while attending school?

  4. Thanks. No not written Tibetan, but I’ve been able to do a few papers on Tibet related topics like Tibetan Buddhism or Tibetan history in school.

    I do include the sources. Usually I place them at the end of the post or I put a link up when I refer to them.

    Dear Jigmed,

    Have you thought on doing a story about how the Nepali government is trying to deport the Tibetan refugees residing there?
    Nepal Soon to Decide on Tibetans: Deputy PM
    Phayul[Tuesday, September 23, 2008 10:35]

    Dharamsala, Sept 23 – Nepal’s Deputy Prime Minister said Monday that the government would soon decide the fate of Tibetan refugees residing in Nepal as the country would no longer be able to bear the burden they cause. “The government will soon decide the matter through review of the existing laws or by giving them the status of Nepali citizens,” he was quoted as saying by the Kantipuronline as saying.

    The Deputy Prime Minister, who also holds the portfolio of home ministry, was speaking to journalists in Pokhara yesterday.

    He also said that the government would take very strict measures to stop the use of Nepali soil against others. “We’ll arrest the protesting Tibetans and initiate action against those having identity cards while handing over others with no identity papers to the UNHCR.”

    There are around 14,000 Tibetans here with ID cards and refugee status, which the government conferred on Tibetans entering Nepal before 1985. It has been 13 years since the government stopped issuing such ID cards even as around 2,500 Tibetans have been entering Nepal every year, reports Kantipuronline

    “Most of those (Tibetans) arrested don’t possess identity card or passports which means they are living in Nepal illegally,” Gautam said, adding, “If we can’t stop this, we are not a country.”

    Claiming that over 100,000 Tibetans have been sheltering in Nepal on various pretexts, Gautam said, “If we continue issuing identity cards to every Tibetan, they will double within 50 years. So, it’s high time we decided over this as we can’t keep them here like this any more.”

    He also warned the Tibetans not to “misuse” the rights given them as a goodwill. “Legal action will be taken if they are found misusing their rights while in Nepal.”

    Meanwhile, Nepal’s Ambassador to China, Tanka Karki, said that China is happy with the action the government of Nepal has been taking against Tibetan protesters in Kathmandu. However, according to Mike Dunham who interviewed the Deputy Prime Minister on September 18, he was told by Gautam that the ‘Tibetans would not be in danger of being deported to China-not now nor in the future’

    Might be nice to have a popular discussion here that doesn’t revolve around Shugden.

    u better not take the Aljazeera interview.
    its disgrace to say you wanna live under Chinese CCP. I know its not just you but there are more people like you among Tibetans. we have already surrendered our independent, culture and everything we have, but what happened now? better to die before you become a citizen of a murderous government.
    And one more thing: do not worry about loosing Han Chinese(if you are talking about 3.14 this year), whatever happened to Hans were just performance of CCP. silly.

    As you may (or may not ?) remember, I was recently creating a little non-commercial game about Tibet’s history. Under a very frivolous game pretext, its goal is to describe an interesting period in Tibet’s history (interesting to me at least): the power struggle that occured between progressives and conservatives when the 13th Dalai Lama died.

    The game is now finished and can be played here:

    The 5th Reting Rimpoche is the main character of the game, and he is described under a comedic point of view: please note that I mean absolutely no disrespect to him: I just needed a comedic character, and I thought that the young, clever tulku he was might fit (moreover, rumor has it that he had a soft spot for beautiful women…).

    In case you care to try the game, I would be interested in your feedback. I put a lot of effort into the historical research, but I am no Tibetan myself.

    Best regards

  10. Just to let you know that the RSS feed of your blog is featured on the new Tibet Central website:

  11. Wow great site. Now I can check out all the new Tibet info and postings on one site. Thanks.

    Tashi Telek!

    I am writing to bring to your attention the creation of a new blog: “Le Tibet Invisible”. This new blog seeks to popularize within the Francophone community the writings of Tsering Woeser, by the translation of her texts, reflections and articles.

    The many restrictions that the Chinese government imposes on members of the Tibetan intelligentsia are known. We hope that this blog in its own modest way can carry the message of Woeser beyond China’s borders.

    We would be extremely grateful if you could share this news within your network. The best would be to include a link on your page or send a message to friends of Tibet.

    Thank you very much,

    F.D., 2011.
