Beyond the Himalaya
I am wandering here in India now. My soul and desire have been always living beyond the Himalayas, because a small country called Tibet is located there. We Tibetans belong to the Himalaya region; these mountains and valleys separate Tibet from India.
Even though Tibet is a small country, it had been a peaceful and independent country before the Chinese occupied it. Its location is a unique characteristic that many people associate with Tibet. It is situated on the highest altitude plateau in the world and wide grassland. Especially, the air is naturally very fresh and pure. As well, you can see the spectacular view of the greenery all around in every part of Tibet, except in the winter season. There were many more different animals, domestic as well as wild animals, that were living very peacefully till the Chinese colonized Tibet. Since the Chinese people first stepped into Tibet, everyone in Tibet has lost their freedom, peace and happiness including the animals. It seems a very dark and slippery cloud has covered Tibet since then and still continues.
Within a short time, the cruel and greedy people of the Chinese Communist Party have destroyed our country with violence and faithlessness. Since 1959 till now, we the Tibetans have become bereft in this world. Though the Chinese destroyed our families, still we have not lost our faith in god. In contrast, they were harsh in controlling our land but they couldn't control the minds of the Tibetan people. Likewise, I believe they will never control us if we take our responsibility seriously. Then what is our responsibility?
I consider that our responsibility is to be unified, to study hard and to struggle against China rather than to think or talk only. Nevertheless, we seriously try to put our words into action.
Hence, beyond the Himalayan region, people will never die; because of faith and justice flying in the sky magnificently, we know we deserve the things we have already sacrificed for our nation.
