During my days of going to boarding school in India and as a youth, one of the things which stood out was the Tibetan people that lived in the area as a result of being displaced from Tibet. In the hill town of Mussoorie (where my first school was) there were quite a few tibetan people who would sell various handicrafts in town that they made.
Then when I moved to a new school in Dehradun, our school was in Rajpur which was right next to a Tibetan settlement, so I got to interact and see the Tibetan people quite often. I didn’t have a chance to interact very often but I will always remember their smiles and the softness in their eyes. When I would get out of the school I would walk up to Rajpur with my friends and we would get this tasty soup with noodles and vegetable dumplings (I forget the names).
Anways, I have always felt the sadness and need of the Tibetan people who have been exciled from their homes in Tibet. There is a beautiful energy, peacefullness and innocense in these people.
