Palden, an ex-political prisoner, reveals the details of his term in prison

Dharamshala: As always with Asian people, it was hard to guess Palden's real age. As he related the opening lines of his story, his recollections seemed so precise that I wouldn't have guessed him to be older than 30. Yet when he faced the audience, there were ages and ages of suffering deep inside his eyes that seemed to have turned him into an old man. Last Updated on Tuesday, 04 August 2009 09:31

A trip home means, smuggling friends across the border, and paying bribes

Dharamshala: In the bottom of mail trucks there are large crates that the border police don’t check.  Laying flat on his stomach below the mail, Sonam returned to his homeland Tibet.  He went to see his family, and to act as a guide and smuggle individuals threatened by the Chinese government out of Tibet.

Ngawang, an ex-political prisoner and protester of 14th March tells his story

Dharamshala: Ngawang preferred to leave his full name unrevealed - his status of an ex-political prisoner in refugee, who, moreover, took part in the protest of 14 March 2008 can still cause a harmful effect on his family back in Tibet. Since the notorious riot the pressure on the locals only toughened and borders secured more then ever don't leave a chance to slip through: only one refugee has been registered since then and Ngawang appears to be one of those lucky, who escaped the country before the iron curtain fell.

Sangmo, the Manager of Rogpa Child Care Organization: Back to the roots

Dharamshala: The morning hasn't yet turned into a hot-stove noon and a stroll down the curving street was like a cup of refreshing basel & mint tea followed by a nib of a crispy lemon bisquit. The doors of Rogpa Shop and Cafe were already open and according to the wafting smell of chocolate the staff was ready to greet the visitors. Last Updated on Monday, 22 June 2009 21:01

No Plan for the future; A Tibetan mother, Sonam Lhamo

Dharamshala: The sun sets around 6:30, as the sun takes a parting glance before it disappears under the Himalayas. Sonam Lhamo sits on the steps of the small temple in Dharamshala, she was here well before sunrise and will remain here for another two hours. She said that the location of her momo stand is “not good,” ideally she would like to set up her stand at the bus stop or in front the main temple, but Sonam has only been selling momos in Dharamshala for one month and is therefore allocated to these steps. “I carry the momos here early in the morning and I sit here all day.” Last Updated on Friday, 19 June 2009 14:06
