Tibetan self immolations: Why isn't the world listening? By Vijay Kranti | IANS India Private Limited – 52 minutes ago Until he became a burning sensation in the international media, the story of Jamphel Yeshi, 27, was no different from the few million Tibetans who live today in what Chinese leaders call a Socialist Haven or China's Tibet. He was one of those 10,000 odd young Tibetans who could smuggle themselves out of Tibet in recent years in search of better education or to find some breathing space for their suffocated souls. Like most of his fellow young compatriots in occupied Tibet, Jamphel too had never seen the Dalai Lama nor lived under what China brands the 'feudal' rule of the 'Dalai clique' that was dethroned by Mao's army 36 years before Jamphel was born.
Like his father, he too was educated and brought up on a daily overdose of Communist indoctrination which hopes to convert Tibetan and children of other 55 'national minorities' of …

meeting today in New Delhi and passed a resolution that Ram Setu built

Bharat. If it happens before the Ram Navmi-2012, lord Ram may wash-out
