8th Tibet Festival Performance

A very moving performance, last Saturday night, at the Tibetan Pavilion in Auroville, was given as part of the 8th Tibet festival. TSAM (Tibetan Students Association of Madras) expressed, through traditional dance and singing, their hope for a free Tibet. The show ended with the Tibet national anthem which brought tears to my eyes, partly out of gratitude to the generosity and warmth displayed by these hobbyist dancers and singers. Such goodwill, honesty, sense of humor and commitment to the cause of their country. Forget hobbyist, I saw only the weight of the humanitarian work that they are doing. Free Tibet! Read more
