China Plans to Divert Tibet's River: Feasible?

Dharamshala: - As Tibet's Yarlung Tsangpo (Hindi: Brahmaputra) - Asia´s biggest river -experiences its worst drought in the last 50 years, there are now reasons to wonder whether the western lifeline of the so called South-North Water Transfer Project will transport enough water for feeding the thirsty Northern China Plain.

Fusion Night: A Celebration of World Environment Day

Dharamshala: - 5th June, 2011: Sunday evening saw the celebration of World Environment Day in a way less ubiquitous. Held on the terrace of Youngling School in Mcleodganj, Tribal Sounds for Planet Earth was a charity event that spread the message through action instead of words - with a background score of fusion music. A cohesive effort of a group of individuals working independently, the idea of Tribal Sounds was to create an evening filled with natural beauty and a curious blend of musical styles.

Cleaning Up Dharamshala - When Garbage Builds Bridges

Dharamshala: In the Dharamshala suburb of McLeod Ganj, where Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama resides, the grubby work of collecting garbage has become a catalyst for uniting its multi-cultural population. The transient nature of Dharamshala - which means resting place for travellers - and the cultural diversity of the residents here, are factors which could easily make for a disorganized and half-hearted approach to garbage disposal.
