Wangdu's Diary

Wangdu's Diary

Regular price Rs. 200.00 Rs. 0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.
For over three months in 1980, school teacher Wangdu chronicled daily official meetings and pre-arranged visits to schools and educational institutions across Tibet for the third fact-finding Delegation-generally referred to as 'educational mission'. Its members, including Wangdu, were sent Exile to inspect the condition of education in occupied Tibet. This diary meticulously records the delegation's journey across Tibet covering over thirteen thousand km and visiting over 41 towns and many villages and pastoral communities. Consequently, it is an invaluable account for today's generation of Tibetans when there is neither direct access to the plateau nor any first-hand information coming out of the country under China.
